Sweetie Tree

Not a card today but a sweetie tree. This was so easy to do and I saw a sample on the Pinflair stand at the NEC. The chocolates are the basics range from Sainsbury's and I thought they were perfect as they're all in plain but sparkly wrappers.

The first photo is taken using a flash and the second without, wasn't sure which one showed it off best??

It's my daughters birthday in a couple of weeks so we had fun making this and it didn't take too long. I also found some glitter wired stars to put in the top to finish it off.

And Another

Yet another card using the Christmas Star set.

The background uses the paisley stamp and clear embossing powder. I then used 4 tiles and stamped and coloured the smaller poinsettia onto each one. Then using ultra thick embossing powder and versamark embossed each tile three times to create a thick enamel. Whilst hot I sprinkled some frantage glitter and elements onto the tile when doing the final layer.

Another Christmas Star

This card uses the smaller poinsettia image from the Christmas Star set by Dimension Stamps.

Like yesterdays card this was made for one of their TV shows. The large doily is a cheery lyn die. The image is coloured using my trusty Promarkers and the greeting around the edge of the card is from the Word Perfect set

A Christmas Star

This card was made for Dimension Stamps with the poinsettia set a Christmas Star

I have stamped and embossed the main image onto vellum with some clear sparkle powder three times and then decoupaged the flower. The bottom half of the card uses the same embossing powder with some of the smaller stamps to make the background card.

Chloe's Stamps

Firstly I must apologise for the photo. I had placed this card in a bag and didn't take it out before taking the photograph so there is a bit of reflection.

The stamp is from Chloe's Creative Cards - flower heart wreath - and stamped and embossed with WOW embossing powder - gold sparkle
I added some gems and a craftwork cards sentiment.

Wedding Card

This card and money wallet were made for a neighbour. The request was red and modern. I thought these hunkydory stamps (celebrations) fitted the bill perfectly and so did they luckily.

I used a red versafine inkpad for the stamping and printed the name panels on the computer.

Love Hearts

Hearts again but this time a Love Hearts stamp. I made this card using tradional colours similar to those you would find in a packet of sweeties. I stamped the image three times and coloured 2 images with Promarkers. Then cut out each sweet and fixed onto the image with pinflair glue gel. I then cut out the hearts from the third stamped image and again used Pinflair to 3D them onto the card. To add a bit of a shine I used Glossy Accents on the hearts.

This card uses a  pretty design from Dimension Stamps, but the reason I have put it with the card above is beacuse I used one of the love hearts as the sentiment, showing just how versatile the Love Hearts are.

Scroll Patterned Heart

When is a heart not a heart? When it's a flower. This scroll patterned heart is from Dimension Stamps and an absolute bargain at the moment as it's only £2.50! I've stamped it 5 times onto paternedpaper using a sepia inkpad and cut them out to make the flower. I also used the same stamp to make the patterned corners.
This card uses the Jazzy pattern background stamp which is stamped with Flitter Glu and gilding flakes. The heart is stamped on acetate and double sided sticky paper used to apply gold leaf to the back.

Little Pig Little Pig

I love this pig pyramid from Dimension Stamps. Rather than colouring the image I have paper pieced each little pig with patterned papers. The sentiment is taken from a Love Heart background stamp also from Dimension Stamps.

Dimension Stamps Daisy Spray

Been having a play with the Dimension Stamps daisy spray 0701089a today. I stamped the daisies 3 times along a pices of white card then trimmed to the size of my card blank. I added some gems to the centre of the flowers for a bit of bling.
The rest of the elements on the card are papers from my stash, a punched border and some ribbon. Ohh and not forgetting the Happy Birthday circlular sentiment 1803161a

I hope you agree when I say simple yet effective :-)

A couple of new cards

These first two cards are made using the Funky Kits fairies aren't they sweet :-) The papers are Memory Box from dies to Die For, The doily behind the second one is a Cheery Lynn die but it takes a while to poke all the little bits from the holes!!! Worth it in the end though.

The next 2 cards use some papers from my stash and a hero arts stamp I've had for a while and never used before oops! The tag stamps are from Little Claire.

Dimension Stamps

This next card is made using the latest Dimension Stamps sets. The flowers of the month set has really detailed images and the row of daffs is made using a single stamp and masking.

This second card is made using nine of the stamps in the set, to make a tile effect card. As the stamped tiles are very colourful and detailed I've mounted them quite simply onto green and pale yellow Bazzil card and onto a 6 x 6 card blank.

New Cards

Well it's the New Year and I've finally got around to making some new cards. This image is a LOTV and the image has been coloured using Flexmarkers. Very simply mounted on pink and yellow bazzil card.
This second card is a Penny Black foam mounted stamp, this time coloured with Promarkers. The patterned paper is from a very old paper pad I think from Making Memories.

Finally my daughters birthday card. I was so pleased with myself when I found this leopard print paper in Samuel Taylors as she loves the Bet Lynch look :-) She was pleased with it too. The image is Kanban.
