Saturated Canary Nevaeh

Can't believe it's taken me all this time to colour this one. Had it sitting for ages. Different colours for me but like how it turned out.

Image is Saturated Canary Nevaeh by Krista. She is one talented lady to be able to draw these little gems & so generous to share them with us. Coloured with Promarkers. Nestabilities Ovals for layers, Spellbinders Edgeabilities Classic Petal & Classic Triple Scallop for border. Cheery Lynn Lace Corner, Personal Impression Swirls & Flourishes Stamps embossed with Cosmic Shimmer True White. Ribbon from Mei Flower & hat pin from can't remember where but think I did pretty well to take a note of all the other details!

Thanks for looking.

Scooby Doo Magic Card

Well this seemed like a good idea at the time but there's a very fine line between getting the 'mechanism'  to slide easily or not!

And since it was going to a 6 year old I just knew it would be non-stop so it had to be right.

Coloured Scooby with Promarkers & printed paw prints onto the pink card & finished off with some punched flowers from the 'Scooby Mystery Machine'. Computer generated sentiment die cut with Spellbinders Shapeabilities Ribbon Banners. Ribbon through an eyelet and Kuretake Punched flower.

Glad to report Rosie loved it! Would I do it again? Most probably not!

Thanks for looking.

LOTV Hello Cupcake Die Cut

Another of the Lili of the Valley die cuts from my winnings. Mix of Nestabilities & Nellie Snellen square dies for matting & layering.

Shaped card from a Create and Craft set. Doohickey Swirl, some organza ribbon & Stickles for a bit of sparkle to finish it off. 

Don't know if I'll ever use ALL the die cuts I received. Maybe I should use them for my Mother's Day charity cards next year, if I haven't used them by then!

Thanks for looking.

Exploding Box Card

Decided to make an exploding box card but didn't allow myself time to decorate outside as well as in. Duh! All 3 layers were similarly decorated with charms or embossing but only took pics of top layer.

Used Core'dinations card, Nellie Snellen Scalloped Square Die, Nestabilities Blossom, Cuttlebug Embossing Folders, Papermania Brads, Charms from internet but forgotten from where. Sorry. Magnolia Doohickey Swirl & Leaf dies, die cut LOTV from the Fairies sheet (another from my prize. Woohoo!) Some Stickles for a little bit of sparkle & job done. Sentiments were computer generated. No wonder there was no time left to decorate outside.

Thanks for looking.

LOTV Emma Walkies

It's my Mum's Birthday today & this is the card I made for her. Computer generated sentiment. Lili of the Valley Emma Walkies coloured with Promarkers. Some Prima flowers have had for ages & also punched flowers, Papermania Pearl Brads to hold them together. Spacers from the internet so long ago can't remember where from.

Used  my new Tim Holtz On The Edge Distressed Doily but wish I had remembered to 'distress' it before I attached it! Martha Stewart punch for leaves. The pearls in the corner are from Meiflower.

Not colours I would normally use but quite like them so this may not be the last time you see them. lol

Thanks for looking.

White on White

I just love the freshness & simplicity of white on white. (Note to self ... make more LIM cards & less where you think you have to throw EVERYTHING at it!)

Loved this Marianne Anja Edge border the first time I saw it & knew exactly what I would use it for. The Memory Box Catalina Wreath added & then some Meiflower Pearls. The butterfly is also a Marianne Creatables. The image inside is a telephone table & a chair cos apparently this dear lady always stays on the phone for at least her 60 free minutes!

Thanks for looking.

LOTV Die Cut 'Feather Boa'

When I won my LOTV prize it included some die cut pages as well as stamps so just had to make use of them.  This one is 'Feather Boa' from the Party Time page. 

Added some glitter, ribbon, pearls and punched flowers, computer generated sentiment, cut with nestabilities and job done. Easy peasy.

Thanks for looking.
