Lovely Penny Black stamp...

I fell in love with this stamp by Penny Black. Here I stamped it in black, and embossed with clear powder...I love it!!!

Love these penguins....

These are a new stamp from "Hobby Art". The top is punched with a Martha Stewart punch, and the silver has been embossed on the cuttlebug.

Such a simple card!! The dove is cut from Beyond Birthdays, and Peace is from Wild Card. I used a "glitterations"gold square behind the dove.

Christmas Bells

I thought that the background paper (by DCWV) was just right for this card. I cut the bells from Stretch your imagination. I welded them together in Design studio, and then cut the handles off. I gave them some shape by raising the centres up with a foam pad and gluing the edges down.

I just think this style of card is so effective...and so simple!!! The snowman is cut from Doodlecharms, and I added a few brads for his buttons...and that's it!!!

Box for 3D card

I made a box for my 3D card, complete with an acetate window so that you can see the card inside. I added another flower cut from Plantin Schoolbook, and added sentiment and frame cut from A Child's Year.

3D floral card

I was inspired to make this by this wonderful blog; it was so easy!! The flowers and leaves are cut from Plantin Schoolbook, and the flourish is from Home Accents.Now I just need to make a box for it to go this space!!

This is a side view to show the dimension.

Ho Ho Ho

I love lots of the images from Doodlecharms, and especially this Santa!! I embossed his beard and fur trim with the cuttlebug, and added a sprig of holly "table-confetti" to his hat.

Doodlecharms reindeer

I just love this reindeer...he is so easy to assemble, and I especially like cutting him an extra large "Rudolph" nose!!!.I added a little doodling, and the stamp is by Inkadinkado.

Halloween gifts

I couldn't resist buying bars of chocolate to decorate as Halloween gifts for my family. All of the characters are cut from Paper Doll dress Up, and "Boo!" is from Paper Pups. I just love the paper which is from the "Daisy & Dandelion" Halloween pack...too good to eat!!!!!

a gift from Pluto....

This is a birthday card for my mum from our dog...honest!!! I welded Pluto from Mickey and Friends to the parcel from Pooh & Friends. I snipped between his two paws so that one would appear to be in front of the parcel. Hope mum likes it!!

punchcraft card

I went to a fantastic punchcraft class today (thankyou Janet from Japonica!), and this is what I made...I certainly wouldn't say it was was fiddly and time-consuming, but I'm really pleased with the finished result!!

Santa came by bus

I was inspired to make this when making a card for my friend's car (it's a long story!!). The bus, Santa and the reindeer are cut from Doodlecharms, the gifts are from Christmas Cheer, and the trees are from Zooballoo. I layered it all up on foam pads to give it some dimension, and added some white doodloing (I love my white gel pen !!!)

Happy birthday Mum

This is especially for my Mum as she loves flowers. "Mum" is cut from Beyond Birthdays, and the rest is from Walk in My Garden.

And this is the inside, flower cut from Walk in My Garden, and "mat" from A Child's Year.

Well done car!!!

Yes really!!! This is for my friend Ruth's car because she was so pleased that it passed it's MOT! Ruth never goes anywhere without Belle (her elderly border collie), so of course she had to feature in the card too! The car and the dog are cut from Doodlecharms, and the trees in the background from Zooballoo.

Ho-Ho-Ho & Let it snow

I have really started to enjoy welding the elements of the card toether in Design Studio, and then layering it up with regular cuts. Here, the tree and Santa are from Doodlecharms, and the snowman is from Stretch Your Imagination. All of the lettering is from Plantin Schoolbook. The snowflakes are from Christmas and Speaking of Winter.

A friend asked me to make this. She had no fixed ideas about how it should be, except that she wanted his name and the date of his birthday included. I fiddled around in Design Studio, and came up with this. The name and number are from Plantin Schoolbook, and the cake is from Doodlecharms. I welded all their shadows together in Design Studio, and then cut out the respective shapes and layered them up with foam pads.
