Get Well Soon

This is for someone who is due to have an operation later this week. The dog is from Paper Pups, and usualy has a thermometer in it's mouth. I cut that off for this card, as she isn't "that kind iof sick" (if you know what I mean?!). The sentiment is from Beyond Birthdays, and it is all raised up on foam pads to give some dimension.

I think I might write something inside about being back in the pink soon !!!

Inkadinkado deer

Another lovely stamp! So simple to make, I just layered it up on some lovely DCWV paper, and added a bit of ribbon!!

Inkadinkado Angel

I love this stamp. It is embossed with "balck sparkle" embossing powder, on some very ordinary (and cheap!) gold card. The bottom layer of black glossy card was embossed using the snowflakes folder.

A Birthday gift

I was completely inspired by Donna Mundinger's version of this shaped card, which is cut from Pooh and Friends. I added a circular tag cut from A Child's Year, onto which I stamped the sentiment.

Ribbon box

This was made from a wonderful kit by They supply the ribbons and the flat-pack box. It is then up to you to assemble and decorate as you wish. I used an Ollyphant stamp, which I then mounted on some really lovely glossy card embossed with holly. A little stickles, and there you have it.

Down on the farm....

More lovely stamps by Ollyfant. I coloured them with watercolour pencils, and then mounted them on tags cut from A Child's Year. I inked around the edge of the tags to add a bit of definition.

let it snow

Having made this card I'm not sure that it was the best choice of colours!! Surely snowy things should be blue & white? ...oh well!!!

The baubles are cut from the Christmas Solutions cartridge, and then layered up on foam pads. The stamps are new ones by "Papermania", and I'm really pleased with them!

I love this church from the Christmas Solutions cartridge. The trees are also from there. I cut the frame for the sentiment from A Child's Year. The stamp is a new one from a set by "Inkadinkado". I embossed the snow and the sky on the cuttlebug, and added some stickles. The whole thing is layered up on foam pads for dimension.

A card with dimension

I made this one for a person who is blind. I have stuck several layers of each element together in the hope that she can feel what it is that I want to convey. The sentiment is from Opposites Attract, and the flower is from Home Accents.

Display cards

I love this new style of card...and it is so easy!!!

The left hand one is a tree cut from Christmas Solutions, on a background embossed on the cuttlebug. The other two are using my new poppy stamp (who says poppies have to be red?!!)

In the dog house!

I am so pleased with my new Mickey and Friends cartridge. I welded Pluto to his kennel in Design Studio, and then just layered them up with some foam tape to add dimension. The bone paper is from the lovely "Pet stack" by DCWV.

Shaped snowman

I just love this snowman from "A Child's Year". I welded his shadow in Design Studio, and then cut a non-shadow version from some lovely DCWV patterned paper. The sentiment is a lovely "Inkadinkado" stamp (I love those too!), and I added a few silver snowflakes...I think I might make some more!!!!!

Snowman from "A Child's Year"

I love this snowman so much!!I embossed him using the swiss dots folder, and cut his shadow in holographic card. The extra snowflakes are cut from Christmas Solutions. I used a small punch to cut out lots of snowflakes around the edges of the patterned paper.
