Dufex Sunflowers

I made this card with a dufex flower 3D design that had been in my stash for ages.

I had a 3D butterfly sticker in my stash too, and added some pearls to that

And I made the other embellishment with various flower dies and a freebie swirl die.

Even got to use an embossing folder on one of the cutting layers.

Swirl Flower Card

I decided to have a go at making a card with mostly, cutting dies.

I got the swirl die used on this card free in a craft mag. It doesnt cut out very easy, but I do like the pattern

The flowers are a my favourite Sizzix one, love the pattern on that on, and using it with a smaller floral die.

Made the bow to finish off.  Simple and do like how the colour theme worked on this.
I dont get to use black on a card much either, though I do like how it makes other elements stand out

Delicate Dufex Roses

One of the few Dufex floral designs Ive left in my stash.  It has a lovely affect the dufex, but I really dont like cutting it out

Very delicate colours in this design, so I struggled a bit to choose the colour theme for the card.
I ended up going for pale green, with pink for backing paper. And cream card which I embossed using one of my folders

The embellishment was made using a larger swirl cutting die and small butterflie dies.

Kept it simple as I didnt want to distract from the lovely dufex design

Vintage Art Deco Lady

I still like to go back to one of my favourite Crafting CD's to make an elegant lady card.

Its an Art Deco Themed one by Debbi Moore, infact I have a few, and still love using them

I combined this 3D design with fancy papers and made the embellishment with a Swirl cutting die (I got it free in a craft mag) and a floral die (one of my favourites by Sizzix)

Lots of glitter on this design, even got a little bit on the flower.

Delicate Angel

I really like this card, for various reasons

One the Angel design, Ive had it in my stash for ages, and liked it so much I didnt want to use it.... Its like those lovely papers you just coo over (lol)

Ive finally used this lovely, delicate angel design.  Kept the rest of the card simple, as I didnt want to overwhelm the angel

I used a butterfly die that I dont get chance to use much, which is a shame, as I love the die.
And I used a recent embossing folder - the pattern is so nice, just added some tiny gems to to some of the flowers on that folder

Such a sweet card, wish I was sending it to myself :D

Vintage Red Car

I used toppers from a Debbi Moore Craft Mag to make this card

It was made for someone that likes cars.  I liked the goggles topper too, compliments nicely

I used a Gears cutting die for an added extra affect, cut in mat card.  I prefer the affect of this die with mirror board to be honest, though it probably would look nice with glitter card too.

Really coming in handy those gears dies, for male cards. I don't do many, but always felt my male themed cards were kind plain.

Butterflies and Flowers Card

A nice topper I have had in my stash for ages.

Two of my favourite themes, butterflies and flowers

I also used my cutting dies to, I used floral dies, flourish and butterfly die to compliment the topper

Kept the colour theme to subtle pinks, but threw a bit of black in the layering, as a nice contrast.

The flower die on this, is a recent Sizzix one, it's turned out to be one of my favourites :D

Delicate Roses

I had a few 3D stickers in my stash, that I quite often struggle to think of ways to use in my card making

So I decided to try and make a whole card, using mostly these stickers.

One of the sets I had, were roses, came with tag, corners and topper.  I used fancy backing paper and  a butterfly cutting die shape to finish off.

Kept the card simple, colour scheme wise.  White and Pink and was quite pleased how this turned out, especially liked the texture included, it made the card quite tactile.

Wash Day Card

I used a Gruffy Bear 3D design, that I got from Joanna Sheen
Ive a few in my stash.

They are quite large design, so not alot of space left to add anything else to a card that is 5x7 in size
However, I used one of my embossing folders to add a bit of interest

And a couple of 3D stickers, the bird house and butterfly for extra interest

Blue Bird Card

I recently got a lovely set of Hunkydory Toppers free with a craft mag.

This is one of the toppers I got in that set, love the artwork.

I kept the card simple, using the blues from the bird, and then using contrasting colours for the embellishment.
I made the embellishment with a swirl die and a couple of different flower dies (using a cutting into the petals method to fill out the flower)
