Elegant card

A simple little card today, which I thought might be suitable for the MTTC challenge this week. I have used my lily stamp, which I have decoupaged. I have also cut the edge again with a Multi Shaper punch. The card has been finished off with peel offs and a hand written greeting.

Gold thankyou card

I made this card for someone who likes gold, and of course as I like black, I mixed the two. I have again used one of my own stamps, the Design Rose, and a Multi Shaper punch.

Rose card

I am now getting carried away doing these tall slim cards, this one is made using some fabulous rose backing paper, more gold peel offs and my Design Rose stamp on shrink plastic.

New year cards

Having run out of time making Chrissy cards, I have had to make a few New Year cards, quite simple again, using my stamps and peel offs. The rose has actually been stamped in gold on black shrink plastic.

Another horse

I am so enjoying playing with my new border punches and border peel offs, and this is another card using them along with one of my horse stamps again. The Krylon pen has again been used to finish off the edges.

Horse card

I made this card using another of my stamps, coloured in with Lyra Aquacolour crayons, and some more lovely background paper. Again finished with peel offs and border punch.


I was trying to use some more of my stamps, but ended up back with the peacocks! Have stamped and embossed the head with cosmic shimmer embossing powder, and mounted on some lovely DCWV paper, and edged with a fancy punch and peel offs.

Feather plaque

Having had a little bit of playtime today, when I should have been making cards, I happened upon an mdf plaque that I bought recently, so I decided to do something with it! I coloured the plaque with Adirondack acrylic dabbers , eggplant, black and gold. I then triple thick embossed it with clear UTEE, adding a sprinkling of Malachite Fire Aurora cosmic shimmer embossing powder on the third go. I then inked my peacock feather stamp with a gold encore ink pad and stamped into the still molten powder.

Leaf card

I've tried something a bit different for me this time........ as you can see I have been playing with my cuttlebug again, and used one of my paintings as a sort of focal point! The greeting was hand written, and the edges of the card were distressed with Ranger distress ink. Don't know if I'm very happy with the result, but hey ho!

Christmas cracker ATC

When my friend produced some crackers for a Christmas party we had on Saturday, I couldn't get over the lovely cream and gold decoration on them, complete with stuck on gems. So after pulling the crackers I have made this ATC........unfortunately the foiling hasn't scanned very well!

CSF Christmas project 2008

These are the triangles that I have made for the CSF Christmas project. We are in teams of 4 and have each made 2 letters for the word Christmas, which we then swap. We have also all made our own S so that when we each receive all the letters we are able to make a banner decoration. I have used all my own stamps and embossed them in gold. The decoration on the letters is hand drawn, and the edges of the letters are finished with gold Krylon.........the edges of the triangles are finished with gold acrylic dabber.

Another alternative christmas card

I made this Christmas card for a friend who, like me favours the darker things in life............the background was embossed with a cuttlebug folder which I then stroked with a gold ink pad and embossed with black embossing powder. The greeting and Madonna are two of my own designs, and I finished off with a black ribbon.
