Hinny Bop Easter Card

I made this gate fold card using Hinny Bop Paws and Claws CD. I am going to give this as an Easter card.

Messy Rabbit

I made this from the messy rabbit cd from Joanna Sheen. I think it would make a nice engagement card.

Soo Sweet and Some Sheep

Using Soo Sweet and Some Sheep CD from Fee J Designs. Created this book using 3 A5 gate folded cards stuck together. Used backing papers from the cd and rounded corners with corner rounder punch. Edged the card with a thick gold calligraphy pen. Used decoupage image from cd and used different elements from the cd to embellish the card. Added a green piece of ribbon to tie shut for the book effect.

Soo Sweet and Some Sheep card

A simple card again using the cd from Fee J designs. A4 half folded card. I have again edged with a thick silver calligraphy pen, this is my little fetish at the moment. Pyrimage image on the front was matted onto silver mirri board. Tile left blank where i will put a greeting once I have decided on the recipient. Put a couple of little gems on the greeting tile just to jazz up a bit.

New Crafters Companion Flower Fairies

I recieved delivery of my triple disk of the Flower Fairies CD's from Crafters Companion. I tried to resist as I have treated myself to a lot of cds lately but it was no good I had to have them. I haven't had time until this morning to check them out and they are beautiful, even the packaging is adorable. There are loads of projects to for inspiration, which could also be used for other disks. I love Crafters Companions products. Before I make something though I have a few projects to finish first. I have so many ideas by the time I sit down to do them I get crafters block. Wonder if other crafters suffer from this. It would be nice to hear from anyone else who suffers lol

First Blog Award

Recieved my first blog award from a lady that shares the same name and nickname as me. Thank you very much Pamela you can view her blog here Now the hard part as I am relatively new to blogging I will need to decide who else to pass this on to. Oh dear it may take a day or two.

Joanna Sheen Pamela West

Another card made using the Joanna Sheen Pamela West CD. This is a gate fold card, I am not usually a very flowery person so not too sure what I think of this one.

Joanna Sheen Messy Rabbit

2 cards made using the fantastic Joanna Sheen Messy Rabbit cd. The top on is an A4 half fold card with a section cut away from the front using shaped scissors and given a silver edge using calligraphy silver pen. Made the bow, tip I picked up from tv. The second one matted and layered with mirri board and backing paper and rounded corners with a corner rounder punch added a 2 colours of gross grain ribbon just to tie in the colours.

Joanna Sheen Pamela West CD

This card was made form the Joanna Sheen Pamela West CD. I like the wee dog in the kilt with bagpipes, I wasn't keen on the distorted tartan but I was too lazy to create my own or look for an alternative but I quite like it finished, I think the paper is probably a bit more subtle and a slight twist on just normal tartan.

Been a busy lady

I have been quite busy the past week. I was at the SEC HobbyCraft Show on Sunday. I picked up a Bind It All there, I was going to wait until I picked up the older blue version but that would have meant waiting, not my strong point, plus this is the new V2 pink model. It is supposed to cut thicker. I tried it out and did a Ben 10 Jotter for my son. Nothing crafty enough for me to put up here. I treated myself to the new Joanna Sheens Messy Rabbit CD. I love it. I have 4 projects cut out. I managed to complete the decoupage for 2 last night so hopefully I will get them mounted onto a card tonight but I have parents evening so not holding my breath. I am eagerly awaiting the new Crafteers Companion Flower Fairies triple cd set but it isn't here yet aggggrrrrr. I also have a few of Joanna Sheens Pamela West images cut out waiting to be put onto a card so just as well the new cd isn't here yet.
I have also managed to forge ahead with my own cd and the first folder is nearly finished. Still a way to go but printed out the decoupage sheet and a few of the papers and I am very happy with how they have come out.
I hope to add some new cards in a day or so, just need more hrs in the day

Oriental Lady

This is another card from The MY Craft Studio Finishing Touches CD. I must admit I bought the cd because I loved this image so much. Gladly it is not the only one. Simply decoupaged the image, used quickie glue pen to add some glitter highlights. There is a backing paper below the image but the image is so large, might put it on a larger card next time of make a stationery set. I did make a matching envelope but I should have made a little larger so made a nice purple box for this

Finishing Touch CD Simple Card

Very simple card using the Finishing Touch CD from My Craft Studio. Printed directly onto the main card one of the pre-designed cards then sized the pyrimage to fit. Made the envelope with liner also on the cd and finished with the matching inset. Also edged with some border peel offs and a greeting peel off. It is going to a lady who spent 6 week living in the Jungle with the Orangutan's, she is having a lot of tests carried out. Hopefully this will make her smile.

Aged Pocket Watch Card

I bought the new Finishing Touch CD from My Craft Studio. It was offered on a special deal on Create and Craft, double cd with 14 stamps.

I used the pocket watch rubber stamp from the set for this. I made and 8 x 8 card, made my own backing paper with distressed ink pad then stamped the watch using a vivid ink pad onto this. Matted and layers some gold mirri board and some corrigated card onto this. Tried to give the main image an aged effect using the destressed pad then used some cosmic shimmer over the pocket watch. I have left a space for a greating and will prin off an insert from the cd to finish.
