Tatty Teddy and Country Companions Pair

 Gorgeous turquoise blue tatty teddy card, layered up in co-ordinating patterened paper.  I've added a turquoise bow, some stick on gems and glamour dust.  Computer generated sentiment and lovely end result.
Same card layout as above but using country companions graphic, layered up, glamour dusted, gems and ribbon bow.  This is on a lovely lilac base card.

Two Tall Cards

Two tall cards I made up recently. . . the lilac one used a cuttlebug embossing folder, I run through twice and cut out some of the hearts, embossed with copper embossing powder and added using 3d foam pads.  Used Spellbinders die for the topper and added a lovely matching lilac bow.

The pink one was layered up and butterflies cut with Tonic punch, frilly ribbon in pink and cream narrow ribbon bow.

No sentiment has been added so can be used for any occasion.  I quite like how these turned out.

Knitting Mice

A lovely very dimensional card made from Joanna Sheen Project Book. . .

Card is an 8 x 8 blank, matted and layered with contrasting colours to the image, which has been decoupaged (doesn't show too well in pic).

I've used tiny pearlised buttons tied with bakers twine, handmade myself some tiny knitting needles - using half a cocktail and tiny bead for each needle, wrapped bakers twine into a tiny ball and pushed knitting needles through, very pleased with how these turned out.

New Home Tree House

A new home card I was asked to make. . . using graphics from Polkadoodles Studio 12 cd rom.  Used some lovely blue ribbon, sparkly diamante brads, glamour dust and clear embossing powder (to highlight selected bits).

Small pink and white flowers added to several places on tree branch for dimension.  Inside is finished to complement front.

Vintage Wedding Card

Commissioned card for a wedding.  I've used Serif to create this muted very vintage card.

The sentiments have been heat embossed and layered for dimension, the butterfly has been heat embossed on the outline with a lovely copper embossing powder.  A lovely sheer blue ribbon to finish off.

Blue Bear On Shelf

My latest make for one of the new babies due in our family over the next couple of months.

Using Bear on Shelf graphic from The Clipart Fairy. . . layered up to give dimension, handmade flowers using Tonic Petal Pairs, triple bow and stickles and glamour dust to finish off.

A little pic of a new venture . . . sweet trees.  These two have been made using a polystyrene sphere, to which I used white icing to stick the love hearts/mallows onto.  Lollypop stick, small white craft bucket, circle of card over florists oasis. . . finished off with a cello bag from Lakeland and a little bow.

Nice idea for Valentines Day, also for table decorations for birthdays/christening/wedding.  Colour co-ordinate for maximum effect.
