Anyway, they are a bit fiddly to stamp, as those cats are soooo small! I persevered though and made this card for my friend...it's her birthday tomorrow. Hope she likes it!!
I made this card a couple of nights ago, using a set I bought recently from the QVC clearout shop in Warrington. This set consisted of papers and 3d rub-ons, which I thought I would open up and have a go with. The rubons are quite thick, good quality and really easy to use!
I was asked to make a card for a Grandad, for his birthday, with a rugby theme. Looking through my stuff, I realised I have hardly anything for a rugby-themed card! I did find this cute pink petticoat image though, in all my stuff.... and luckily, the person who asked me to make this, was very happy with it! Phew! (Dovecraft papers used and image coloured with chalks.)
I made this card with an embossed frame from craftwork cards...i bought it at the Leigh show last weekend. I just mounted it on 3d foam, to give the frame a bit of lift from the card. I printed the computer generated sentiment straight onto the card from the computer and added a few sparkly little gems onot the middle of the flowers.

Yes, erm... Smirk papers. Yes. My friend bought me some of these for my birthday so I thought I would make some quick cards with them over the weekend. For this card, I cut all the little squares right down and made them into this card...
I decoupaged the "born to shop" sentiment on this card and added a bit of glossy accents here and there.....
This paper is so lovely... I only added a flower and a pearl. I might add a stamped sentiment at some point, if the need arises....

I bought this image a while ago, from PCCrafter (its by the artist Debbie Mumm) and I love it! I generated the image on the pc, and matted it onto some paper I have had for yonks... thought I would finally use it! I just added some punched flowers on the edge, with some hand-drawn stalks.
This is another image from Debbie Mumm... I decoupaged the cat, the cushion and the frog and plantpot. The frame is also decoupaged onto the card to give a bit of depth.

I made this card for my mum, with those fab V&A papers, and some punched flowers and leaves.
of vourse, I have found a nice sentiment for her....
I have made this similar one for my mother-in-law...
And I made these for a friend who asked me to make her a mothers day card for her mum, and one for her aunty who is like her second mum...what a lovely idea! (I have given her the choice of two for her mums card.) I hope she likes what I have made for her.... xxx

I was over the moon when I was asked, way back at the end of January - but now the mag is out, I can show you!! Thats me on the right hand page! Julie is another papercrafter...very talented, and is on the left hand side with her cards. We both got sent a bunch of yummy stuff to play with and make some cards to send to them (I got the V & A Hanoverian collection)..I made 5 and sent them all as I didn't know which 3 they would have room for on the page. But I'm chuffed with how it came out! ....
This card took a lot of time to make.,..getting the circle the right size in the paper, stamping those butterflies and putting them on the acetate front, lining up the pergola to fit just in the centre. I must admit, this is my least favourite of all the cards I made,but I love the paper on the front, and hey...it got in!
I love this one. It was my Hubbys idea to put the birds on the window... he took a real interest in the cards I was making for the magazine. I cut the curtains from the textured card I was sent, and made little tiebacks from ribbon. I used a brad from the collection to hold the ribbon in place.
I love the embossing folder that came in this collection, and used it on the cream card on this card. I inked all the edges and i just LOVE that paper! The rub-ons were so easy to use and good quality. I've had some rubbish ones before (from other companies) that woudn't all rub on, but these were great!
I used V&A papers, and the beautiful cottage stamp behind the window, with the matching rub-ons. ( hand written sentiment )

I was asked to make this for someone, which a few people will sign, so I embellished the inside of the card, with the main message matted and layered, for them to sign. I added the text onto the image and used my lightbox to emboss the edges of the card, after matting the image onto that lovely spotty paper I have had for yonks. I have decided that I must start to use that 12 x 12 paper stash!
I printed the text next to this cat image, before I embossed the edge and matted onto black card. A few gems finished this card.

Another baby girl card....to match with the boy card I put on the blog last week... I just love the little frame! It comes with the star already on, then I cut out the teddy and glossy accented her nose. I also embossed the edge of the card.. I love doing this, as I think it gives a lovely professional finish!
How I love these bears! I mounted them on little foam pads so they would stand off the card a little. I chalked the edge of the sentiment and matted it onto baby pink gingham.

Anyway.... this is my first pic of the evening. I love this one, The paper is from a download site which im afraid is no longer running.....so we can't buy anymore of their gorgeousness :( i printed the sentiment on the pc and decoupaged ted on.
Again, I used my sentiment printed from the pc and a digi element frame I have. I also embossed around the edge of the card.
Again, I used the paper from the closed down site , my pc printed sentiment and some flowers and leaves I punched, with a few gems. Simple, but effective I think.

I love the sentiment on the card above. I found this on the internet and used a pc program to set it in the birdhouse frame. Quite chuffed I could do this!
