more makes

The above card uses a fabulous and adorable digi from Glamoureyes and is available at; .  I used an 8x8 card blank and then put some bronze mirror card on from Creata.  I then put some core-dinations pink card through two different embossing folders (musical notes) and (snowflakes), then sanded it to bring white through.  Instead of snowing snow I decided it would be snowing musical notes from an old music sheet, also used the sheet as the ground at the bottom.  The digi was coloured with my trusted pro-markers. 

For this card I used my good old faithful book-a-trix embossing board.  I layered cream pearl card with gold mirror card.  The toppers are from an old Kanban kit.  I used several dies for embellishments and the flowers are from;

New UK my besties challenge

Yaaayy it's time for another fantastic challenge over at  .  This time the theme is 'circles'.  Below is my DT example following the 'circle' theme.

I've kept the design relatively flat (we all know postage costs these days).  I've put  basic blue card onto a card blank and then added some Creata double-sided card stock.

I've used two Spellbinder dies for the circles, some have been used around the edges to look like going off the page..

The main focus of the card is an adorable Sherri Baldy image that has been coloured in pro-markers.  The image can be found along with many more at; .

I've then added some flat-backed pearls and buttons that tie in with the colours on the digi.  The heart die-cut is from Creata's double-sided card pack.

I hope you like the simple look to this card, that is achievable by anyone... well I've proved that, I've made it ...

One image two looks.  Dillybeans images can be purchased at; .  Dillybeans also have a weekly challenge for crafter's.

For this card I have used and 8x8 card blank, then layered using Creata mirror card in red and black and Creata line paper.  The sentiment is a polkadoodles one.  I embossed the black card using a crackle effect embossing plate.  The small cake was made using Martha Stewart crafting clay, then coloured with pro-markers.  The digi itself is coloured in pr-markers and the skin tones are done in greys to give an alternative feel.

For this card I have started with a....yep , another 8x8 card blank!  Again I have used the delicious Creata mirror card.  The papers used are also from Creata and available through Create and Craft or Creata on line.  The flowers are made using a mix of the papers and mirror card with roses placed in the centre.  The digi image is coloured with my good old faithful pro-markers.

Xmas cards

Don't you just love thinking about Christmas this early? LOL.  As you can see I'm kind of hooked on using blues at the moment.  The image is a Sherri Baldy digi available from  .  I have used an 8x8 card blank, then layered with Creata silver mirror card and centura pearl card with a hint of silver.  On top of that is more mirror card ant then some more centura that has been embossed with the 'swiss dots' embossing folder. The sentiment is from Lindsay Mason Designs, sold through Personal Impressions stockists.  I have then used a spellbinders holly die along with a swirl die to embellish.  Flat backed pearls and diamond stickles are also used.

The second card again uses an 8x8 blank card, onto that is added layers of centura pearl card stock along with some art deco papers from Creata$s=creata  also Creata glittered paper. The greeting is a die cuts with a view sticker.  Two embossing folders have been used on the centura card for extra dimension, again swiss dots and snowflakes. Snowflake border cutting files are available through  To embellish the card I have gathered some white lace along the bottom, added some clear dew drops and a few pearls which were from Wild Orchid crafts.
