Scooter 50th Birthday Card


A card for my sons to give my Brother-in-law for his 50th birthday next month.

I picked this Lili of the Valley image because he loves his own blue scooter,

I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with blue card and then brown and white gingham card. I have cut strips with the same card along with tan card and attached them to my card blank. I have printed my image and coloured it with Sprectrum Noir pencils and then die cut it with a Tonic rectangle die. I added the image to blue and tan card. I attached the mounted image to my card blank. I have die cut the Happy Birthday with a Tonic die and the Uncle with a Sue Wilson die in blue and tan and while attaching them to my card I slightly offset them to create a drop shadow. I die cut the fancy square shape with a die from The Works and added the numbers that I cut with Marianne dies.  I completed my card with buttons from my stash.

Family Tree



A little something for my Brother-in-law for his 50th birthday next month. I wanted to give him something to keep as well as the money for a few pints because it is a milestone birthday.

I have matt and layered my background with red and white embossed card. I embossed the white card with an Embossalicious embossing folder.

I then die cut the tree using a die from a Xcut family tree die set and attached that to my background.
Next, I printed the family names and die cut them with the heart from the set. The butterflies I have added to the background have also been cut using a die from the set. I used punches to cut the leaves and the flowers that I have added to the tree. I printed out the family name and die cut it with a die from The Works and attached that to the tree,

I die cut the grass with a Memory Box die and added tiny flowers and rabbits that I cut with a Cheery Lynn die. I added some tiny gems before putting my completed project into the frame.

Fire scene Christmas Card



I have used an A3 piece of white card to make a gate fold card. I have covered the outside with spotty card from Anna Marie and the inside centre also with spotty card. I have also used patterned paper from Lidl or the inside of my card. I have cut a strip of white card and creased it before sticking it to flat to the bottom of the inside of my card. This is to resemble skirting. I have used the following die to create a scene. I then added the Welsh sentiment on bunting, Nadolig Llawen is Welsh for Merry Christmas

Window - Memory Box
Curtains - Memory Box
Cupboard - Marianne
Fireplace and accessories which includes candlesticks - Die'sire
Christmas tree - Sue Wilson 
reindeer - Cheery Lynn
Christmas Tree outside - Spellbinders
Chandelier - Tattered Lace
Triangle - Sizzix
Letters - Xcut

For the front I have cut two of the windows for each door and attached 2 of them to a piece of white card and cut around them leaving a border. I did this again for the other side then attached them to both sides of the gatefold.

I die cut the wreath three times with a Xcut die and the mistletoe and added them to the top of the door on one side so the card can be opened. I have added flat backed pearls on the front and the cupboard as handles.

Christmas Train

I loved making this card. Something completely different to what I usually make. I'm going to send it to a little boy.


I have covered my 8x8in white card with Anna Marie red and white spotty card. I covered the bottom half with white card, I rounded all the corners with a punch. I then added gingham heart ribbon embellishment. I have die cut the sentiment using a Crafts Too die in green and red card and attached them to a white oval that I cut with a Presscut die. I slightly offset the sentiments when sticking them down to create a drop shadow. I have die cut the train using a Marianne die using red and green card. I die cut various dies for presents using Sue Wilson and X Cut dies to add to the train.

Front Door Christmas Card


I enjoyed using the Crafters Companion embossing folder on Saturday so I couldn't wait to use it again. Here it is again this time for a home front door scene.

I have embossed tan card and inked over it with a black ink pad. I have matt and layered my A4 card with red card and then the tan card and white card. Part of the white card has been embossed and the bottom has been die cut with a Cheery Lynn die to create a snowy scene. 

I have die cut the following elements to create my scene:

Door - Memory Box
Window -  Memory Box
Curtains - Memory Box
Fence - Memory Box
Christmas Tree - Spellbinders
Lamp - Marianne
Snowflakes - Cheery Lynn
Wreath - Dovecraft
Number - Tattered Lace
Santa and Sleigh - Cheery Lynn
Snowman - Marianne
Small lamp - Marianne
Christmas Tree scene - Memory Box

After die cutting the elements it is simple to assemble the card using glue or double sided tape for the larger elements. I die cut three wreaths to layer them up and then added red Tonic Nuvo for berries and a bow. When the completed wreath was dry I added it to the door. I finally added Tonic Nuvo Glitter Accents to my project add a snowy effect.

Jingle Bells Christmas Card


This is an 8x8in white easel card. I have matt and layered the top and bottom with red and white embossed card. I embossed the white card using a Tattered Lace embossing folder. I printed the manuscript that I found on the internet. I tied red ribbon around the paper and added a bow. I die cut  the musical element using a die by Yvonne Creations. I cut the main element in black and added the green on top for the holly and brown for the robins. I added Tonic Nuvo drops for the berries. I die cut the poinsettia with Tattered Lace dies. I cut the Jingle Bells with a Tonic die in green and red and created a drop shadow while attaching them to my card. 

On the bottom of my card I have attached die cut rectangles with foam pads so they will act as a stopper. The white rectangle will include a personalised sentiment closer to Christmas. Finally I added carol singers that were  cut with a Brittania die.

Heart Card


This card is for my DT post over at http://movingalongwiththetimes.blogspot.co.uk/

I have made this card in preparation for an engagement card. I will personalise it when I have been given the details. 

The embossing folders and heart die I have used are all by Tattered Lace. I have matt and layered my card with pink then white card. On the bottom section of the card I have used white embossed card. I have added the die cut heart. I then added satin ribbon across the top section of the embossing. I then added flat backed pearls. 

When I know the size of the sentiment I will pick a shaped die from a nesting set to cut the printed  sentiment and the next size up in pink to layer the sentiment.

Perfume bottles thank you card




I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with silver then turquoise card. I rounded the corners of the layers. I have die cut the background with the Sue Wilson eternal ring striplet die. I cut it three times in silver card then attached them to white card and cut around it. I die cut the perfume bottles using Sue Wilson dies. I added adhesive sheets to the silver card before die cut cutting the bottles. I peeled the backing off then added the fancy design before adding Tonic Nuvo glitter. I attached the bottled to my card with foam pads. I have die cut the Sue Wilson Oslo in silver and turquoise and then printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with an element from the Oslo set. I completed my card with Tonic Nuvo drops.

Poinsettia Christmas Card


For this card I have used a Sue Wilson die from the stained glass collection. I have cut it out in white and used that as the background and mounted it onto gold and red. I then die cut it in gold, red and green. I paper pieced the elements. I added flat backed pearls to the centre of the poinsettias.

I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with gold and then white embossed card. I have embossed the white card with a Tattered Lace embossing folder. I added the completed stained glass element with foam pads. I die cut scalloped ovals using a nesting set by Go Kreate, I have cut red, gold and then white ovals. I then added the die cut sentiment that I cut with a Sue Wilson die. I also added a die cut poinsettia that I die cut with a Tattered Lace die. I embellished that with a flat backed
pearl.

Cute Christmas Card


A cute Christmas card prepared for one of the younger members of my family. The white scalloped circle will have a personalised sentiment added closer to Christmas.

I have used this card for my DT post over at craftyhazelnutspatternedpaper 

I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with blue card and white embossed card. I have embossed the white card using a Crafts Too A4 embossing folder. I added a strip of patterned paper taken from a Forever Friends A4 pad. I have used a topper from Hobby House and layered that onto blue card. I have die cut the scalloped ovals with Xcut nesting dies. 

I completed my card with embellishments on the embossing
