Teddy Christmas Card

Well I've actually made a Christmas card for a friend who loves my teddy designs, so although it's not very Christmassy I hope she likes it!

Last one.................

I more peacocks, only I wanted to blog this one, as it has a different layout. I cut a section from the edge of the card, before attaching the peacock panel. I used the Cuttlebug Happy Birthday folder to emboss a matching piece of card, which I attache inside the back of the card. Then I cut a strip from the section that I had removed, and attached this to the inside back of the card, with a peel off Happy birthday on it. The edges were finished off with gold peel offs.


.....another peacock card. I have used the cuttlebug on a piece of gold mirri card for this one, stamp again! The edges have again been finished with krylon pen and gold peel offs.

Tall slim peacock card

Have made another card this evening using another of my stamps. It is made in the same way as the others. I had to mount the cut out head onto gold mirri card, in order for it not to blend into the background too much.

And another.........

..........card, made using my Cuttlebug.........(yes Fifi, I do love it :) ) This card is made in the same way as the last one

Kingfisher card

More cuttlebug embossing here. I have used a print out of my kingfisher painting, mounted on a piece of card which has been coloured with alchohol inks, as the main focus. I have used peel offs to finish the edges.

Birthday feather

Another birthday card, using my new cuttlebug birthday embossing folder, and my feather again. Everything edged with Krylon, and gold peel offs to finish it off.

I have made another card today, using my peacock feather stamp, and more cuttlebug embossing. Black peel offs complete the edge of the card, and the greeting is written on by hand.

Alternative christmas card

A friend asked me to make her Christmas card using my peacock feather stamp.........not a very Christmassy image! So I employed my Christmas embossing folder to emboss a panel of red satin card. I stamped my feather on pearl card, and embossed it with gold powder. I coloured the feather with a gold galaxy marker, watered down with a wet paintbrush. I tore the feather out, and edged it and the embossed panel with a gold Krylon pen. I attached the panel to a cream pearl card, and added peel offs around the edge. I atttached the feather with 3d pads and finished off with a gold Merry Christmas peel off.

Cuttlebug skinny and moos

Still playing with my cuttlebug, this time I have made a skinny and two matching moos, using my own design stamps. Again they were edged with Krylon pens.

Cuttlebug ATC

Haven't had much time to play today, but I have made a cuttlebug ATC. The fabby card was embossed with the cuttlebug, and edged with Krylon. I printed out the painting of the kingfisher, matted it onto the same card, and then onto a bit of card that had been coloured with alchohol inks, which I also edged with Krylon. This was all then mounted onto the ATC.

Doodled Inchies

Along the same theme as the canvasses and ATC, I have made these Inchies, for the MTTC challenge this week. I have doodled the pictures and words I edged the inchies with Krylon pen.

Kingfisher ATC

Today I used a remnant of paper to make an ATC for a friend, made in the same way as the canvasses, using a print of one of my paintings, doodled trees and edged with Krylon.

The second one of the pair....................

I wanted to make a pair of these 5 X 5 canvasses, so this is the second one of the pair, made in the same way as the previous one :)

Autumn canvas

I have made this 5" x 5" canvas by covering it with a piece of decorative paper, and neatening the edges with a piece of self adhesive DCWV gros grain ribbon. I have printed out one of my paintings and sandwiched it in between two slide mounts, and put them into a frame. I have attached this to the canvas using a piece of ribbon, and drawn some trees with a sharpie marker.

Cuttlebug ATC

I've been playing with my new cuttlebug, and some embossing folders, and I have made this ATC, using a print of one of my landscape oil paintings. The edges were finished with a Krylon pen.

Horse ATCs

Have had a bit of a play with my latest stamps, which can be found on my website, and have made these ATCs. The horses have been coloured in using Lyra Aquacolour crayons. The bottom one has been edged with acrylic dabber, and the top one with distress ink.
