Spellbinders ornament dies

Yet another set of new dies. I have combined this one with a pretty embossing  folder .

Free embossing folder

This embossing folder came free with a magazine, and I am pleased with the way it has worked out here'

Create a card die

Oh dies rather seem to be a bit of a theme with me at the moment!! This is a "create a card" die by crafters companion, and I'm afraid that once again I just had to have it!!! I have used it to cut and emboss and then sponged some pearlescent inks through the stencil to create this effect. Then I added the memory box die across the bottom. 

New sizzix die.

I saw some sample cards made using this die and just fell in love with it!!

New spellbinders die

As soon as I saw this new die I just had to have it......I have made several cards like this, and I am really pleased with the way they have turned out!!

Ukelele birthday

A colleague asked me to make a card for her partner's 50th birthday, and said that he is learning to play the ukulele! I had to look them up online to see what they looked like, and have to confess that I was surprised to see that they are very much like a small guitar!! I was inspired by a card I found here:
And this is my take on it!

Hot chocolate and marshmallows!

A colleague at work asked me to "disguise" a jar of drinking chocolate and a bag of marshmallows that her young daughter has asked for as part of her Christmas presents. This is what I managed!

Modern Art

My friend Diane asked me to make a card for her grandaughter who will be 16 at the end of the month. She told me that she is quite a "way out " girl who likes modern art. This is the best I could come up with!! The stamp is a lovely Penny Black one. Diane always wants the person's name, age and date of their birthday on the card......not what I would do, but she is the customer!!!
