Morning bloggers....

I have 2 CAS cards today that are a very easy make!

The pink card is 10.5cm x 13.5cm and the blue card is 10cm x 15cm

The giraffe card is a side opening and I actually covered the base card with  the pink embossed paper!  There isn't any need to waste gorgeous designer paper that way, or any other type of paper/card.... the thinking head is not thinking very well this week

I used the giraffe die to die cut the silhouette onto the white top panel card, then added mounting foam to the back of the panel and adhered it to the base card

The sentiment was die cut and embossed 3 times, glued together then adhered to the card

I used 'pastel rose' PVA glue to create the 3 gems

The blue card is  top folding and, this time, I only added a small piece of the blue spotty paper onto the base card

I die cut the top panel much smaller for this card as a contrast to the pink card and used an elephant die on this panel

The sentiment 'pitter patter' was die cut and embossed the same way as the other card

I used 'decadent teal twinkles' for the gems on this one

Hello ladies....

I'm  afraid there isn't a post today as, yesterday, I was taken to A&E as an emergency with query heart attack/angina.  Thankfully it was neither but the doctors are not sure what is happening

I'm having 2 procedures on Thursday morning, so if you would bear with me please I'd be very grateful

I'm happy to say that Wednesday's freebie card  will go as planned, it's just today's post that I've not been able to put together

Thank you so much

The base card is an A5 black cardstock with a smaller panel of blue cardstock

I used 2 different stamps for the background then added wide organza ribbon.  Double sided mounting foam was added to the back and adhered to the base card

In my stash I had the Chinese image as well as the 'good luck' sentiment.  I matted the image onto silver card then added mounting foam on the back and attached it to the card

For the sentiment I only added a little mounting foam 

I used a domino to stamp the female image then added colour before I applied a wet glue to the back of the domino to securely glue it in place

Such a glorious day yesterday for the royal wedding.  I loved Megan's wedding dress

Today's card is one I made quite sometime ago, it's amazing what you can find sorting through boxes etc

The base card is kind of a dark sage green with a smaller white panel with a white gloss card on the top

The white area was masked and for the background I used the technique with wax paper and an iron.  I've shown this technique before 

The stamps are by Clarity, the LOVE was heat embossed with gold embossing powder and a gold paint pen used to draw a squiggle frame

Now for the winner of the gorgeous stamp set....

Still keeping with a sunshine colour, when our grandson was about 3 he would always say his favourite colour was orange, so I always think of him when I see anything orange (I think about him even when there isn't any orange colouring about too lol)

The pretty background paper is from my stash, I matted this onto black card then onto the orange base card

I randomly stamped images onto white card, placed the heart onto this, then drew a line around it and fussy cut it

It was then adhered to the heart, hubby punched the hole in it for me but before I added the organza ribbon I went around the edge of the heart with an orange ProMarker

The heart was then ready to be adhered to the card.  I added glue to the edge of both smaller hearts and sprinkled orange glitter onto them

The sentiment was stamped to complete the card front, I used the sentiment from the Curly Corner Stamp Set by Creative Expressions/UMS007

The vibrant inside of the card had a panel of black card then a smaller panel of orange.  When I come to send this to someone I will add another panel of white card to it

Now onto the card winner....

White and silver for today's card, another favourite colour combo of mine, this is my version of a card I saw on Pinterest

I started with a white 5"x7" card base, cut a piece of silver mirri 3"x7" and a smaller panel of white card, this piece was embossed then adhered to the mirri card and then onto the base card

The sentiment was die cut 4 times, glued and stacked together and positioned on the card

I used the outer cutting die for the silver star, shaped and scored it prior to adhering onto the card.  Three sizes of petals were die cut several times  to give a fuller flower.  The petals were shaped, glue added to the tips and glitter jewels applied to them

Once the layers were glued together I added a diamond gem to the centre then adhered onto the silver star

To complete the card I added silver and white layers to the inside and typed a verse



  • A4 embossing folder ~ Falling Snow/Crafter's Companion
  • sentiment ~ Happy Christmas/Creative Expressions (CE)
  • star die ~ CE
  • poinsettia die ~ CE
  • iced snow glitter jewels ~ CE
