Let's Have Coffee

Let's have coffee this card if my challenge entry on the Cardz 4 Galz page I am currently a guest dt member and I must I am enjoying my time as a Guest dt member.
The challenge this time was Tea and or Coffee.
I found a gold base card in my stash 6 x 6 I then printed out some free images as I didn't have any stamps to make this card. I then used my Scan N Cut to cut them out I have then placed some foam pads on the back of my images and sentiment to life them from the card to give a bit of dimension.

Happy Mother's Day Card

A very simple but effective Mother's day card. I have taken the Lisa Horton 3d Sunflower embossing folder and embossed the beautiful Sunflowers. I used a piece of white card stock  then took a dauber and my Distress oxide ink pad Wild Honey and rubbed all over my Sunflower and rubbed extra in the middles of the Sunflower. I then used a sentiment from my stash and stuck with wild Honey on white and matted on to a black piece of card stock as I used a black 6 x 6 card base. To finish of the card I added a little gem either end of my sentiment.

 Happy Mother's day to all the mums out there have a great day and thank you for visiting my blog.

April Showers Bring May Flowers

I really enjoyed making this card I took a 6 x 6 black base card. I printed an Ombre piece of paper to cut and mat onto my card.
I then took some ombre glitter card and die cut my brolley pieces raindrops and flowers and my sentiment scalloped background. I then took my black card and die cut my brolley top layers and some scrap white card to stamp my sentiments and layer on top of my glitter scalloped mats.
I have raised my brollies, sentiments, teardrops and Flowers on foam pads and then placed onto my card I think this is a very colourful card.

You Deserve A Treat Card

A bit of downloading of a free print and the use of the Scan N Cut I printed out my dotty background and then my lovely big cup cake and sentiment.
I then used my Scan N Cut to cut out my lovely cupcake now this looks so nice I could eat it.
I have taken a A6 card then cut my dotty background to mat on to my card  then place my die cut cup cake on foam pads to raise slightly from the background.
Lastly I thought the sentiment would go nice on the cake wrapper.

A quick and easy card printed of a couple of free downloads. Then took a base 6 x 6 card and then matted my first print of cakes with gingham edge. I then took the large sentiment and fancy cut it out and placed foam pads behind to raise it slightly.
I think everyone says everything is better with coffee but not me I am a tea drinker.

Sparkle Medium and stencils make a lovely gift

A blast from the past I remember making these years ago. I still have the stencils and my sparkle    mediums maybe It's time I got them out again as these are so easy to do and they make and make a lovely present.  

This is my Peacock stencil.

 This time I have changed the colours of both the frame and colours of sparkle medium and I decided     on  a Owl stencil this time.

Hope you like them and thank you for visiting my blog.
