I really enjoyed making this for Lynne, it was for a corset mingle on KCUK. I stamped some pink roses on to some cream card and then embossed it with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I coloured some white lace with pink Glimmer Mist and used it to edge the corset, then I added some pearl beads and some roses. The rose stamp is by Clarity Stamps.

Easel Card

It was my son's 22nd birthday this week and this is the card I made for him.
The stamps I've used are Flippin' Stamps by La Pashe for the fisherman, the sentiment is by After Midnight and the border is by Elusive Images. I coloured the image with Promarkers, the more I use these pens the more I love them.

Deco Pages for Jo

I'm taking part in a deco book swap and these are the first pages I've made. They 're for a lady called Jo and the theme for her book is Country's.
The stamps I've used for the Egyptian page are by Non Sequiter. Nefertiti's head has been embossed with gold Metal Magic, I've also embossed a couple of the corners with the Metal Magic. I used Delight modeling clay for the Pharaoh's head and when it had dried I coloured it with gold Viva Precious Metal Colour.
The stamps I used on the England page are Cherry Pie Art for the castle, Big Ben and the Queen, Elusive Images for the poppy and Crafty Individuals for the trees in the background. All the colouring in has been done with felt tips. I triple embossed the Queens head.

Wild Flowers

The stamps I've used for this card are by Elusive Images and I coloured the image and edges of the card with Distress Inks, barn door and crushed olive. I mounted the image onto some black card and added some pale green gems.

Moo Cards

I made these Moo Cards for a swap, the theme is Time. I've never made a moo card before so it was nice to do something different. The background and clock face stamps are by Creative Expressions and the stamp I used for the wings is by Invoke Art. I coloured the background with distress ink and covered the card and clock face with Crackle Accents but it doesn't show up very well on the photo. The edges of the cards has been embossed with cobalt sky Cosmic Shimmer UTEE. I wanted the wings to move so I attached them with a brad and stuck the face to the brad.

Think Of A Number

The theme for KCUK's February ATC swap was numbers, this is my contribution. The black card is called Black Magic, I embossed it with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and then sanded it to remove the black and show the colour underneath. I've got a stamping set that's like the John Bull printing set that I had when I was a kid, I find it very useful to make up words to stamp, I used it to make the sentiment. The ruler is some preprinted tape that I had.

Iris Card

Another quick card. The Iris stamp is by Penny Black and the words are by Hero Arts. I used Marvy Blending Blox ink on the stamps, I seem to use this ink quite a lot, the images were layered on to coloured card and I added some ribbon and some gems.

Vases of Flowers

This is a very simple card to make. The stamps I've used are by Penny Black and I stamped the images with Marvey Blending Blox. I layered the images on to coloured card and added some ribbon and some gems.
