Chronology card

This card is made using a kraft 5 x 7 card tent style.
I used a downloaded blue decking paper (DoCrafts site) I spritzed this & the card with Artiste
Shimmering spritzing ink in Elecric blue. I then used brown ink and stamped the clocks over the blue paper just on the left side.
I used a postcard topper from the chronology range - inked the edges with a teal blue stazon ink pad.
I cut out the brown clock & the marvellous piece from the papers.
I used a metal clock and covered in a circle of acetate before adding the metal hands and blue brad.
I hand wrote the sentiment ( can't you tell !!! ) & the birthday wishes were in my craft supplies.
The blue "wings' were cut from the blue downloaded paper with the smallest paisley die shape & inked in gold on edges.

Oyster blush good luck card

I made this card for a very good friend who is moving miles away to a new home & a new job !

This is a peach background on a 7 x 7 white card. I used  two different backgrounds from the oyster blush capsule range from DoCrafts , one for the top & one for the bottom. I cut the butterflies with a Tim holtz on the edge die, & cut again a few more in the background papers. These can be decoupaged on top. The lower die cut is also an on the edge die that I cut in half and stuck each side. The small oval good luck is a DoCrafts punch and there a few butterflies punched too. The big organza bow is tied on before you stick the peach onto the white card.

Card for a young at heart birthday card

 This card is for a friends Birthday & because he is young at heart I thought the thumbs up
Kid from Kenny Kiernan digi stamp was ideal !
I used the extra large dies set to cut out all the elements
Added buttons all round frame too.

Madame Payroud meets foiled toppers card


This is a quick card, but looks special .
I used a square 7x7 white card which I embossed in the XCut machine
With a A4 embossing folder.

I used an ink pad that I dabbed with a cut & dry pad
Just softly rub onto rough paper under your card and then drag onto your card
So it's a soft effect colouring the embossed area around the edges.

I chose a sheet of paper from the DoCrafts Madame Payroud range & matted it onto
Silver mirror board. 

This is then stuck down in the centre of your embossed card.

I then chose a die cut notelet from the pack shown below

This I stuck in the middle as below.

Using the foiled topped that were free with the April '14
Creativity magazine, I chose a decoupage topper & a sentiment shape.

I used small foam pads to 3D the decoupage topper & for the sentiment shape
To which I added a silver ' best wishes' peel off.

This card was finished off with a 3D butterfly from the Madame 
 Payroud range & some adhesive flower gems .

Scrapbooking pages , started at the Excel show

This is my best friend Marj getting married in 1965, I am 16 & she is 18 . The little girl is her sister in law .
I used the beautiful oyster blush capsule range from DoCrafts , they have a lovely pearlescent  glow to them.
I used a metal buckle shape and lace with a button all from Madame payroud range. The ruffle is from the oyster blush range , flowers are die cut & spritzed with a mixture of cardinal red & hematite artiste spritzing inks.
I sprayed them on to a large acrylic block and added some water. Dunked and dipped my flowers in, then scrunched them up whilst wet, opened them out and left to dry. Buttons added to the centres. The white frame is a white card front embossed with a square embossing folder with roses on it, softly inked with pink and brown ink pads.
The letters are stickers from Madame payroud also.
This page was made using two 12x12 pages from Gorjuss girls range. The centre is cut from the darker one to create a frame , edges are distressed with scissors & inked. The brown stripe paper is placed under the frame.
This is lightly spritzed in places with hematite spritzing ink.

I cut a smaller piece of green from the pack and after adding my 3 photos I stamped the top right of the green and bottom left with purple artiste ink pad , using stamps included in the gorjus girl stamp range.
A green bow is added on the top left to accentuate the green in my photos.
There are also a couple of toppers added to the page, the heart tag and the journaling tag are cut from the inside of the paper pack.
On the bottom left I cut a small square topper from the paper pack & topped this with a cute bottle top embellishment .
