Sassy Cheryl's Welcome Digi Card


I was wandering as you do on Facebook and found someones card with one of these digi's on and it was love at first sight . They are so charming little people who just grab your heart and remind you of your own kids as they were growing up. Even reminded me of some of the things that I got up to lol ..needless to say I spent quite some time looking through them . Main problem was which one to get ..Problem was solved when I was on their Facebook page and the lovely artist was giving this away as a freebie for a limited time, so I doubt it is still there sorry ,but you can just look at mine or go to Sassy Cheryl's Neighbourhood  on Facebook.. You could also head on over to www.sassycherylsstamps.com to see the full collection including Boys and Christmas ..There are so many you just keep going ooh and ahhh..
Right now onto my card
The background papers are from my stash and the lovely blue cardstock used for layering was from my bargain at Lidls ..You have to save money so you can spend on important things like new pens or new machines to play with lol.I used a Tonic punch to cut the border trim on the left hand side this was called the Beautiful Bramble Border.. nice and easy to use and a nice clean cut too. I mounted and layered the card as you can see this is replicated on the inside too as it finishes the card off I just have to add the verse.I then used flowers from my stash ..I had already done my topper which I shall describe now.. I coloured her in using SN pens and pencils, when finished I did not want to leave it square so drew around a die and hand cut the spike design around her ..still feeling not quite right I carefully used the same colour pen as her jacket to go around the edges and then using a fine pen then put tiny stitching around to finish ..It add a nice point of interest and breaks the squareness of the card and the layering.. Hope you  like it and Thanks for visiting :)

Pink Romantic Wedding Card

Well been suffering from card makers block with this one ..don't ask why I have not got a clue,I loved the papers I got these from Liddls they are beautiful and have encapsulated glitter all over the one side and plain on the other..I used the glitter side of course ..Bling is best,, The stamp is one that I brought ages ago and cannot remember who makes it sorry ..Colours with SN pens and pencils. It sat for a day or two on the shelf and it was not until I put the flowers on that it all came together and is actually a very graceful card..My Grandsons mate ordered this from me..lol..talk about kids bragging..Bless him I love him loads.. I am pleased with it now , thanks for visiting x

Crafter's Companion Cards



These are a selection of my recent Crafters Companion Cards..The first one in the frame is from the new Halcyon Days cd..It was lovely and easy to make ,the images throughout were beautiful ,I added a variety of flowers from my stash to finish..Had well over a hundred likes was thrilled on the Facebook group . The second Pink one is from the new Vintage Floral..all I can say about this kit is WoW.. I used one of the 8x8 embossing folders for the background printed a ribon layered it with gold voil ribbon so you could still see the paper one under it then put some lace under it..the whole background is very touchy feely.I found the old advert from some vintage images on google and added a few flowers to it using the original leaves as the greenery. then popped on all the other elements I printed off the cd ..I Then used one of the lovely papers as an insert inside the card . The third one which is the round easel card ,I made for a Challenge ..got no where never mind.. The easel is an unusual twist as it is twisted at an angle instead of the normal straight on..After all the matting and layering I created the stop by hand cutting the little bat out ,scoring it into shape and made the little ball drew on the lines then used toothpicks for the stick things..It never fails to amaze me how knowledgeable I am to the wonderful sports games that men play lol NOT..This was made from the Makey Bakey cd x

Seaside villiage by Lapashe

This was a really rush rush card ..found out about six o'clock the night before that this card was needed and although I knew my friend was coming this weed I was under the impression it was on wed or thurs ..oh well.. The main image is from my lapashe cd..there are some lovely scenes on there I like them as they are very generic and they are so crisp and sharp.I decoupaged the image about four layers and most of it is at the front on the boats..In real life it was stunning ,but had to take pic at night sorry..Backing paper was all from stash .. The shells I Googled good old Google lol.. I felt it needed something more, they are actually shaped too which you cannot really see from the picture.. She loved it and I am sure her dad will too..Just two more Dad Day cards to go ..phew x
