Gift Box

Here is a little gift box I made using one of LOTV's toppers.  The paper is from Nitwits.  I punched the leaves and the paper flowers and pearls are from my stash.

Rocking Horse

As soon as I saw this gorgeous image from Beccy Muir I just knew it had to be a rocking card.  I have decoupaged the image.  The stamp on the tag is from Stampin Up and I have added a bow.  I have also added a glittery punched heart.

The Rose

This is a stamped one-layer card.  The base card is actually cream in colour not white as it looks in the photo.  (Why do computers do that???).  Anyway the stamps are magazine freebies and I have used promarkers to colour the image.
One of my favourite flowers is the rose but not the pink and red ones, no, I prefer the yellow/orange/peach ones.

Patchwork Owl

Today's card features one of my favourite Woodware stamps which I have paper pieced and added goggle eyes.  The papers are old ones from My Mind's Eye.  The paper flowers are from my stash along with the gems in the centres.

Christmas Star

A little Christmas star this time using a printed fabric square which has been attached to card stock and placed onto a die cut gold mirri mat.  The scalloped base card has been embossed using a folder and the ribbon is from my stash.

I have been getting messy today, having a play with distress inks.

The stamps used are both recent magazine freebies and the satin ribbon from my stash.  I made a background using distress inks and brushing the colours on, as in a previous card that had to be rescued when it warped.  This time I used watercolour card and guess what?  It DIDN'T warp - yeh!!!  Having splattered the card with purple ink I stamped my peacock before cutting out with a fancy die.  I then coloured a bit of the feathers with a promarker pen.

Gift From Heaven Tilda

Today I had a little play with one of the Magnolia stamps I recently won.  I coloured her with promarkers and die cut her out with label dies.  The background papers are from Nitwits and I have made a panel that I used a border punch to cut the edges.  I topped this with gorgeous lace (very sparingly as it is one I don't like to cut into).  I then added a die cut flower with resin sentiment and three large gems.

Sail Away...

I made this card a short while ago and didn't get around to blogging it.  All the stamps and dies used are from Stampin Up except the seagulls which are from Hobby Art and the liquid pearls that I used for the seafoam.

Skipping Milly

A card for a child today.  This one features a pre-coloured digi stamp from Pink Gem which I have cut out with a stitched flag die.  The background paper is from my scrapbox again.  I have cut a border strip and topped it with heart ribbon and added a few buttons and a chipboard number.

New Home

This is a card I did a while back so I can't remember where the papers come from.  I think they might have been magazine freebies.  The background has been emossed at the top and paper added to the bottom  I also did some faux stitching around the edge.  The house is made from various shapes and layers that I hand cut.  The window features were doodled and the curtains were coloured with a promarker.  The sign is a peel-off and I fussy cut around it.  The flowers are punched and a gem added to the centres.

A funny card today featuring one of my favourite digi stamps from Bugaboo which I have coloured with promarkers.  The background paper is a very old one from Papermania (bought about 12 yrs ago).  I have added an embossed panel and die cut circle and a few card candi.
