A Friend Is Someone Who Chooses You Card

 I have made this card for a swap. A nice A5 card and some matting and layering. Then some stamping and colouring.

I stamped my flower image and coloured this using my Tri blend pens. I placed my lovely sentiment at the bottom it looked a bit bland so I stamped three little flowers and placed a gem in each.

I do hope the recipient likes this card.

Large Butterfly cards

 I have had this stamp for years and I love it I decided to do a three tone the red is glitter embossing powder and the green and blue and just embossing powders. The actual card for real is so pretty.

I think you can see the red glitter embossing powder but it's still a lot more glittery in real.

Happy Birthday

 I think this card would be good for any gender. I have taken a biscuit colour piece of A4 card and cut it to 11 x 5 and scored at 5 on the 11 inch side.

I think took a piece of white card two stamps these stamps are Tim Holtz Blueprints and two different colour brown inks and stamped my blueprint cake and present and then I cut then into squares and placed them onto my card . 

I then stamped my Happy Birthday sentiment and die cut it using my banner die and I raised this with foam pads. To give a little dimension to my card.

Happy Birthday Card


Here is a cute Meerkat Happy Birthday card. I have just taken a base A6 card in a chocolate colour and then trimmed a patterned piece of paper slightly smaller to leave a little boarder. I then stamped my cuties using black ink.

Just look at those cute faces they look so cheeky.

So now I have Thank you cards at the ready.

Magazine , stamps and die find.

 To see the video click the link

Here are the magazines 

Here are my stamps and dies from Hefty Doodle and a card I used using the dies and stamps are from the above magazine.

This is the magazine I got as the dies were shown in the Creative Stamping magazine and I needed them :) The bottom left corner is a little memory book I made following a picture on the sheet as you can see top left.

A great find these magazines and Heffy Doodle I have never heard of them till I saw someone use the stitched slimline trio die and had to find them as they are so different.

Butterflies and glitter

I love to make my own backgrounds for this I have taken a piece of white water colour card stock and my aqua markers and done a colour wash . I let it dry and then I have used my Nuvo Moonstone glitter paste covered it all and left it to dry again.

I die cut a butterfly in red and placed onto the card and then I have matted this all onto a Black base card.
