Hot pink birthday card

This card is done with some more of my handmade paper roses and rosebuds, and cutting file leaves.  

The sentiment is peelcraft and the tag is a spellbinder one.  The background is two of the  Marianne designable cut and emboss Anja dots folders joined in the middle with the ribbon.  

Rolled roses Birthday Card

Another card with a very similar layout as the previous post.  This time I have used the K Kingdom Leaves and Butterflies embossing folder.  The same frame is used with the sentiment.  The roses are done with a cutting file by Bird.  I have this time sponged it with a red stamp pad.  The flourish is a Silhouette Studio flourish cutting file.  

Cherry Blossom Birthday

A birthday card.  This one is done with the Palm leaves cuttlebug embossing folder, the Framed Curved Leabilities Die with the sentiment done on the computer.  The Fanciful Flourish  for the leaves and flourish and Cherry Blossom die for the flowers both from Cheery Lynn.  The tiny flowers are the sakura flower punch.  I have sponged the edges of the emabossed background and the frame with baby pink stamp ink.

3 colour versions

I have done three Birthday cards, all pretty much the same, other than their colours.

They are all done with the Marianne Designables  Flourish and dots cut and emboss folder for the background and the Dienamics Leafy flourish die. Then some homemade roses and rose buds.

Welcome Abigail Rose

I have made this card to welcome my first Grand Niece to the world, and congratulate her parents on their wee baby girl.

I have done the drawing of the clothesline, the cutting of the baby clothes and the letters for her name on the Silhouette Cameo.  The pegs I just cut by hand out of a strip of brown card, and the Welcome is done on the computer.  Some brads, gems and ribbons to pretty it up and viola...

Here is Abigail Rose

Owls in Love

Another card made with the 'Hoot in love'Owl die by Cottage Cutz.

I have cut out the owls as normal, and then I have added the tie on the male one, and the dress and necklace of gems on the female one. 

 I have popped a few flowers on the branch.  I made a moon to go behind them, which I embossed with the palm leaves cuttlebug embossing folder.  I used some of the hearts done in either pink card or glitter card, and also some extra wings from the male owl in the same colours, for all the hearts above the owls.  

The border is the Joy Craft Floral border, and the sentiment is done on the computer.

Whooos turning ...4

This card I have made for Fat Cats Card Corner, using the Cottage Cutz Hoot loves you Owl die set.

I have used some woodgrain paper available from Silhouette Studio for the background and have cut out 2 heart apertures with the silhouette and also the number 4.  The balloons are just punched out with a punch, the party hats were just triangles cut out with a gem on the top.  The sentiment is done on the computer and the rest is done with the die set.    

Quite an easy card to do

Black and White Wedding Card

I did another card with the La Rue Heart die from Memory Box

I have used a black and white damask pattern paper on the background, with the faux Crochet border by Dienamics.  The Heart die is backed with a white card that has been embossed with the cuttlebug 'Birds and Swirls' folder.

The sentiment is done on the computer and mounted on the die Crafts too Victorian Rectangle nesting set.  

I have finished the card with a clear gem flourish and a silver and black bow.

Wedding Card

This card was done with the Memory Box La Rue Heart Die.  The card hasn't photographed very well, it was supposed to be a turquoise blue, but it has come out very green.  

I stamped the background with the chandelier and the damask pattern from this Kaisercraft clear stamp set with a pale blue stamp pad.

The background on the piece that the heart is on, is stamped with a flourish stamp, but you can't see that very well in the photo.  

The roses are made with the Die-namics Royal Rose die, and the white leaves are done with the Marianne Creatables Anja leaves 1 set.
The Sentiment is done with a Stamp from a wedding set I bought a few years ago.  

It is mounted on the centre of the Fleur de Frame Couture Creations nesting die set.

Three Christmas Cards

I can't believe I am making Christmas card in August!  But was sent the Merry Christmas Cheery Lynn die from Fat Cats Card Corner, so made a start of some cards to put away until Christmas.  

The first one is a simple one done with the Scalloped doily oval duo a Die-namics die which I cut a aperture with an oval nestie to see the sentiment that is put onto the inside of the card.

The roses are done with another die-namics die the Royal Rose.  The flourishes are the Elegant Scrollwork die by Memory Box and the green and gold leaves are Marianne Creatables Anja Leaves 1.  I have embossed the background with the Crafts concepts Candy Canes.

The second card is using the same Merry Christmas Sentiment die from Cheery Lynn, this time I have mounted it onto the Designables Swirl Cut and Emboss folder.  

The poinsettias are the Veined poinsettia Marianne Creatables die, the roses are done with the Royal Rose rolled rose die by Die-namics.  The leaves are done with the branch punch by Nellie Snellen.  

The final card is done with the Marianne Creatables 4 frame set LR0234 and have used the bigger two frames.  The poinsettia is also a Marianne Creatables die.  

The sentiment is the same used on the earlier two by Cheery Lynn.  With some green ribbon to finish it off, and match the sentiment.
