Just For You!


It's a windy day today out there, Sunny but windy.

Today's card is one for the girls and think i will give it to my neice.

I die cut the girl and dog out of a sizzix sizzlits die.  Then i matted it onto a die cut circle and flower shaped die cut.  I attached them onto some flowered paper. Die cut a spellbinders flower scene and heat embossed some pink and purple embossing powder onto some of the flowers. Stamped and embossed 'just for you' onto some card and wrapped some twine around it.

I think my Neice will love this card as she loves dogs and flowers.

Have a great day!

Hello all,

Today's card is one i made for the men who like cars! I stamped an image i got free from a magazine - Bentley Bear by Adam Pescott back in 2011.  I had a theme for this card for the name that tune challenge Madness- i like driving in my car.

I coloured it using promarkers, layered it onto brown card, Die cut and embossed a Marianne designs scalloped circle, sanded it, Then i matt and layered some stripey Kraft card(recycled from an old gift box i had years ago) onto brown card, attached some spotty ribbon and attached a few brads, then attached a Kraft card tag using an old washer and a brad. Finished it off with fake stitches using a black sakura pen. Everything on this card is over 6 months old.

Hope you like it!!

Happy Birthday!

Hello All,

Today's card is one made with a Magnolia stamp, i stamped it sitting on a table, as i didn't have a chair!!

I have matted and layered some orange flowered paper i brought years ago from Papermania, then i die cut/embossed a pretty circle from a Marianne design die out of some whitewash Co'ordinations card. Stamped and embossed 'Happy Birthday'. Punched out a flower border strip using a Tonic punch, attached some orange and green ribbon, and made a bow attached it to a leaf metal charm.  Finally added a few flowers, and buttons. Oh and coloured the image in with promarkers.
