Hand made Flowers.......


Hello everybobs xx  this week i turned my hand to giving handmade flowers a go...and i dont think i did TOO bad lol. The large pink one was made using Tim Holtz tattereed flowers die. I used aged mahogany distress ink to touch up the edges then scrunched the petals before gluing into place.  The White/green flower was made using die cut flower shaped from Uk £1 shops that were being sold last year. I used forest moss distress ink to stamp over the shapes first beore shaping the leaves and sticking together - i finished off with a bit of diamond stickles.
the small flowers were made using papermania flower punches. the lotus one was made after following a tutorial from my good friend Lee http://craftyloops.blogspot.com/2011/06/flower-tutorial-teeny-tiny-lotus-flower.html  I can see making plenty of these !!!

Cadbury wedding card.......xx


Hi there everybobs ! xx this card was commissioned for a wedding where the colour theme is cadbury purple..  the image is from Mo's digital pencil which i love because its not too 'cartoony' but lovely showing the 'first dance'.
i used the purple colour to mat some cuttlebugged card. i used this as i couldnt find a patterned paper that was right to go with the purple without being to OTT.

the flowers (my fave flowers) are foam rubber and i bought them from a haberdashery dept. in Boyes department store. i have seen similar in packs in Hobbycraft too for using on bridal hairpieces etc.

Lemon and Lime DT card

Hello everybobs xx todays card is one I made for the Design team over on http://stampinfortheweekend.blogspot.com/
To make this i used the Papermania 'build a butterfly' stamp, one of my old favourites. coloured using promarkers in lemon and Lime hues to meet the theme of the challenge.  The butterfly is teamed with simple non fussy papers from the papermania capsule range. i decided on plain papers so as not to detract from the beauty of the butterfly which is the focal point.  the ribbons were from papermania capsule and the pearls from Kort and Godt.   the Lemon and Lime challenge is on for the next fortnight so if you fancy a challenge please join in xx

A most HUMONGOUS birthday xxxx

Ive just had the most wonderful birthday ever xx not that it was any special birthday or anything like that but because of the response of all my friends on the Docrafts cardmaking forum. ive just totals 70 cards and ive heard still more are belated and in the post.. the picture shows just a portion of them.  ive never had such fun opening so many wonderful cards - and appreciating all the hard work and skill that went into making them. i treasured each and every one.  some came bearing much loved crafty gifts and two even came with scooby snacks for kayla!!!! (one happy poochy).  when i make a card for someone i pour my heart and soul into it and on that day i certainly felt it returned a 100 fold back to me from all my wonderful and thoughtful friends xxxxxx  thank you all so much xx

Have the Bestest of days..........

Decided today to have a play with some of my papermania 'woodland Folk' bits and bobs.. the first one i have made into an easel card using my large scalloped nestie die.  the papers are distressed using forest moss distress ink and the dragonfly is from teh xcut embossed punch range .

the second one i have left pretty simple as the paper itself was quite bold. i just finished off with a couple of capsule buttons that matched in with the toadstools x  thanks for looking and any comments are much appreciated x
