Another acetate card

I am really getting into these acetate base cards! This one is made using LLB papers and some deep burgundy ribbon from my stash. Oh and some gems of course :) Thanks for looking!

Facebook shop now open!!

Earlier today I discovered it was possible to have an online shop through facebook!
As I've reached a bit of an uphill climb setting it up on my own website until I have more time to work on it, I thought this would do in the interim :) click here to visit me!

Thankyou card

After receiving some gorgeous stamped LOTV images from my friend Sarah I just couldn't wait to use one on a card, so I made this thankyou card to send my mum for looking after the cats while we spent a few nights in London last week :)


Look what lucky me received from my very generous friend Karen! The doggies are really cute and will go perfectly with the new ribbon I just bought :)  Thankyou Karen, the stitched card and images are gorgeous too!

Today's makes

Good evening all! I've had a rather crafty day today and managed to make 3 cards! The first one I would like to enter into the current Creative Cottage Challenge - 'Things with Wings' and the current MSE challenge. I have used my new Flower Fairies heliotrope stamp set which I got at the NEC and haven't got round to using until today, coloured with promarkers.

The next one is something I have been dying to try for ages but never seemed to get round to it! I have made the card blank from acetate and stuck mats onto the front and also on the inside, aligned with the one on the front so when the card is closed you can't see the one on the inside :) I love how it's turned out and will be making more!
And finally a quick one made with my Kanban cupcake stamp set, I have inked up the greeting with a Brilliance trio inkpad to get the colours fading in and out :)

Thanks for stopping by :)

Creative Cottage - Pretty Pink

I made this card for the current challenge over at Creative Cottage - Pretty pink. I have used a background text stamp inked up with dovecraft hot pink ink, and cuttlebug dasies embossing folder directly onto the card blank. To make the flower I have stamped with stazon onto acetate and coloured it in with my new Silkies paints which I LOVE!

Charisama Cards - Animal Magic

Here's my entry for the current Charisma cards challenge, Animal Magic. I've used my new Pepper and friends cat stamp, coloured with promarkers, isn't he cute? :) plus MME pretty please papers, ribbon and peel off from stash.

Creative Card Crew - Vintage

Here's my entry fror the current challenge at Creative Card Crew - Vintage. I've used a Victorian style lady stamp, papers from Create and craft and my new X-cut flourish border punch, under which I've layered some of the flowery paper from the top so you can see it through the punched edge. The sentiment is a stamp by personal impressions and adding gems just didn't feel right on this card, so instead I've used some flat backed pearls to finish it off.
