13th birthday

This was the card I created to send to create and craft for their birthday, but been so busy with family being poorly I didnt see a lot of the programme so dont know if it got shown, well it was a chance to be in a comp, but i enjoyed going a little ott with the design


played with colour on my craft studio to change the flowers on my charisma cd, used a do crafts wooden stamp and charisma tattered lace die, finished with toning buttons

what a tiny die can make

This card was made using 3 little dies from tattered lace, the cute tulip die is about an inch in size and to fill the card I cut 25 in white and layered with one in silver, then cut up another die to use the leaves and swirls, topped with a tatty twinkles word stamp and flowers

mix and match

Created with a mix of items from my stash, tonic dies an old do crafts wooden stamp and paper and topper on an 7x7 card, using my alcohol pens I coloured the embossed part of the die cut


made this little DL card using tattered lace charisma dies and cd, I love the tiny little birds that can be perched on the word dies

Hee hee another card was needed, so with a freebie embossing folder, card and pens, I created this 5x5 card, and then started to dig out some more of my craft stuff, and at the rate I am going it will all be unpacked soon, oops

doodle do

Created this card for my other half, I had packed most of my craft stash away, but then need to make a couple of cards, with only card a pen and alcohol pens to hand I made this whole card from doodles, then matt and layered it up, rather pleased with the finished card

lift off

As I have packed my beloved cameo away, ready for moving, I decided to play with Hunkydory liftables, great for a quick card, I loved to colour these keeping it simple as they are rather small

plant pot

while playing with bits and bobs, I found I needed some plant pots, rather pleased with the finished ones on cards, cut out basic shape and rim and coloured with alcohol pens, used a mix of tonic dies and added flowers from my stash

peek a boo

Another mixture of tatty twinkles and tattered lace dies, DL card. first I cut a seperate piece of card not as wide as a DL. Then I cut the word love out and kept the centre of the o, I then layered this over my DL card and cut the words again, I inked the edges then I put a little acetate in the middle, just covering the words, glued the two pieces together and add the centre of the o's in each love word and stamped a tiny heart on each, i then cut an aperature out of the card, this takes a couple of runs in machine, then created a frame, inked the edge and added a little nuvo mousse, the piece left from the aperture i stamped with image and coloured in with alcohol pens, I closed the card and glued in place so it sits on the back of the card, added the frame and finished with tiny flowers

playing with tattered lace and Tatty Twinkles

created using charisma frames 2, the largest die cutting 2 layers of cardstock that had been folded in the middle, the top layer folded of centre then I glued a single layer to the base of the fold. using different sizes for the top and bottem I then inked a mixed sentiment all over and distressed the edges with tim holtz in broken china.  From the charisma CD, I opened my craft studio, located the flowers I wanted and altered the colours to suit my project, then cut out using the die set that matches the flowers, then I stamped the Tatty Twinkles church and coloured in with Alcohol pens, the base of the easel inked later I cut in half, glued the back on and added 3d foam pads for the front piece added a bow and ribbon and finished with the flowers layered up to form the stop, which helps the easel card stay open, using another layer on the top I inked the same as the others but then added Tonic nuvo mousse pure platinum, which gives a lovely shine and draws your eye in to the focal point of the church, finished with flowers and then my partner showed it to his dad who then wanted to keep it, so of course I gave it to him.
