Requested Wedding Card

Good Afternoon!

I have a requested wedding card for you today

I have used  beautiful ice white pearl card, and cut the new spellbinders botanical swirls followed by a frame from spellbinders labels 28 to encase and surround the lovely pattern.

I decided to write the names of the couple on one of the fancy tags which i have the placed in an arch shape over the frame.

Flowers and of course my signature bow finished with a few diamontes and a lovely tissue lined box to showcase it in!

et voila!!

Hope you like it

16th Birthday Card

Good Afternoon Fellow bloggers.

This is my first post of the week, the weeks are flying by and there are just not enough hours in the day!

I have a Requested 16th Birthday Card today, I tried to keep this quite simple as again making a card for a teenager is a nightmare but thankfully at least it was for a female!!!

I have used lovely ice white pearl card which I have mounted onto silver and black card, the topper was made by myself, I printed the leopard print pattern onto the same card and then made a lid which was sprayed and glittered of course!

The letters were cut on my cricut again sprayed and glittered! and the tag was spellbinders labels 28 I think!

Finished with a lovely Black Feathers,  wide ribbon and a heart diamonte ribbon slider!!!   and NO Bow, yes probably the first card I have ever made without one lol.

Hope you like it!

It would be great to hear from  you!

OMG New Pen Storage

2 posts in 1 day,  this is a first for me.

I haven't got a card but would like to tell you how excited I am about my new pen storage.

These are from crafters companion and are the ULTIMATE pen  storage.

The fact it is modular is fab for me as I have a loft space and with the eaves sloping it is difficult to get anything to fit.  I have put my copics in which is my well loved collection of Copic Ciao and Copic sketch markers.  I have bought a few sets of the Spectrum Noir and also a few promarkers, so will need another 2 lots of 6 I think then this will be complete!

Many times I have had to root around for the right pen combination well no more, I just had to share as this was only delivered an hour ago and I have already assembled mine (they are staggered) and put my pens in.

below is a quick pic of the storage on my desk

let me know what you think of them. you can leave a message in my new gadget on the right, I would love to hear from you.

well thats my last post of the week, will be back soon
(I promise)



40th Birthday card!

Good Afternoon

I have a 40th birthday card for you today,  this was a quick make (only took 2 days! lol)
I just wish I could knock out a card in 30 minutes would be lovely.  

It took me a day to plan out and  select everything I wanted on it.

I have used the new spellbinders fancy lattice, floral ovals and cut the 40 on my cricut!
the flowers have bee fully glitzed and so has the numbers!

The embellishments I have used is Ribbon (of course), a rhinestone heart charm and the cute little on in the centre of the ribbon is a spacer and brad.

Hunkydory card for the backing card and then lovely pearl card for the main, the text is computer generated.

I have added a new gadget to my side bar, I would love to hear from you even if its just to say you have dropped by!  just getting used to blogland and hopefully will have a better background soon!! (when I figure out how to do it) lol.

Anniversary with a hint of BLING!!!!

Afternoon All,
What a day, it is raining hard outside and I have the heating on so feel lovely and warm.
Winter is on its way i think!

I have an anniversary card for you today, I have made this with my new botanical swirls and accents dies from spellbinders.

Surprisingly enough this is one of the quickest cards I have made for a long time.

I have used nearly all white pearl together with a hint of silver and a beautiful new JEWEL wow and this is superb bling and reflects the light like dazzling diamonds, but also weighs a ton so this is going to cost me a fortune to post lol 

only one pic today folks as the light levels in my room are not so good, I really must use my light box but this is only good when you have a dark room and mines inbetween at the moment.

hope you like it and will post again soon.

Would be lovely to hear your views and comments!

Male Cards Arggggh!!!

Morning all 

I have a Male Card this morning, and believe me I cannot make them very at all, I so love sparkly things and really you cannot put all the lovely embellishments on a male card, I am looking for some new charms so hope to have them soon.

I normally try and buy a card if is for a male relative I know BUY a card which I hate doing but some of my family are really difficult to find the right thing!

So here it is, I have printed a quality image of a formula one car and then just mounted it onto some black and silver card. I then decided as this was not very interesting to put an acetate dome on the front but make it a square one instead of a round one so it would fold flat to put in an envelope for posting.

Added 2 shades of ribbon to tie in the colour scheme, added the sentiment text in 3 different fonts just so it was a little different and hey presto.  I have even personalised the insert by fading the image of the formula one car inside, this fits the whole of the insert rather than just a small picture which has been faded into the background!

hope you like it, I have my mums anniversary card to do this week so will be posting that soon please do pop back to see it.
