So pleased that the following feature in the current edition of Die-Cutting Essentials.
Made with Sara's Glamour collection with a request for shades of pale pink and pale grey/silver, I really enjoyed making these.

Full instructions in the magazine.

Thanks for taking a look.

On your Christening Day................

A recent order for a Christening card for Kingsley.

I've used the new Die'sire Create-a-card frame for the photo with a blue glitter mat behind, the added some gems to embellish.

The Die'sire essential words are so use for occasions and mix well with other alphabets too.

Thanks for taking a look

Lynn's card

This the card I made for my lovely friend Lynn for her birthday.

The background was a sheet of white A4 card which I randomly painted several colours of Dylusion paints. This panel was put through my Gemini with the English Country Garden 3d embossing folder which had been inked with Black soot. 

I matted it the layers of black card and silver glitter card.
The dragonflies are from Chloe's stamps - a recent purchase from the Create-it show near Maidstone - stamped onto the leftover card and cut out.

The edges have been blinged with Creative Expressions Icicle Sparkles which, unfortunately, don't show to their full advantage in photos.

Hope you had a lovely birthday Lynn!

Here's the birthday girl blowing out her candle on the cupcakes I made for the occasion :)

Create-a-card - Frames

Another fabulous launch of dies from Crafter's Companion - the create-a-card frames.
So clever in their design as they come in 2 pieces so you can create the frame with the detail or by rotating one piece 180 degrees, just the frame.
These are the samples I made.

I really can't decide which is my favourite - what is yours?

Finally used a stamp I bought ages ago to make this card.

Watercoloured with Distress inks.

Think its a Woodware one - perfect for the young men or ladies in your life.
