Good Luck ~ Pilot

A male card made to represent a past era. The image was printed in different colours and sizes. The smaller front picture has been embossed with clear embossing powder with a heat gun to give an old leathery effect. After layering and matting the pictures together I layered again onto green cs and then a silver mirri board and then adhered to the card and added a peel off border. I made the sentiment in word and printed and mounted to the card and added 3 pearls just for effect.

Bon Voyage

I used a stamp from the Graphicus Guild and stamped onto parchment with a Black StazOn ink. I then went to the reverse of the stamped image and embossed the white areas with an embossing ball tool to give a wintry effect. (I hope) lol
I then attached the parchment to black cs with 4 square black brads and then layered this onto my card. Added a sentiment and went to make a cup of tea !! hahahaaa


simple to make butterflies were on the cs
cut out butterfly at the top and sentiment

Hollywood !!!

Audrey Hepburn is stamped with Black StazOn onto plain Vellum and then I put some coloured Vellum behind her and some black card behind that - all held together with two red heart brads. Everything after that is matted and layered onto either black or gold card. Added a strip of bling down the side and a gold tassel. Also added some gold peel offs down the edges of some layers and for the sentiment.

With Love

Green iridescent card punched down opening side with ms punch. Flowers printed from MCS Countryside Garden CD. Corners punched. layered onto silver mirri board. Cut out some of the flowers and decoupaged and also heat embossed with cosmic shimmers embossing powder. Sentiment made out of a scrap piece of card with corners punched by a round corner punch and then peel offs added.The card also has a matching insert.

Movements of fashion

Cream card base scalloped along front outer edge with MS punch. Layer of brown cs then a layer of Joanna Sheen Paper. Then a layer of brown plaid paper again scalloped with MS punch. I then added a layer of white cs and silver matt board. Added the picture and also added a cut out from my cricut machine using SCAL2 and I glittered the same.

another male card .....

Picture printed from Carousel CD on photo paper. I faded out the edges of the picture and added the loco to make it look as if it was coming out of the front of the picture. Also made the background to the soldier from the loco by tiling it before fading the edges. I glazed the soldiers goggles and the light on loco. I layered the pictires onto green suede and that was layered onto silver matt board. The sentiment was printed and adhered with sticky pads.

My first proper decoupage (ie more than 1 layer) lol

The decoupage was a 3D sheet which was a freebie from I printed onto photo paper and cut out the pieces I wanted.  I punched the edge of the card with an MS punch and then layered a piece of black cs on top and punched that also. I layered the decoupage onto white cs. Added some gems. The sentiment was also from the freebie sheet I layered this onto white and black cs.

3 Fairies -

Pink Fairy - I used MS punches to make the lacy border and the heart embellishment. The fairy was printed from the CD and layered onto black cs. I added glitter to the fairy, 3 gems across the top and printed off a sentiment.
Blue Fairy - I made the background on photo paper and rubbed a variety of blue inks onto it. I then stamped some leaves with black stazon ink and white colorbox chalk ink. The fairy was printed from the CD and layered onto black csand I added a bit of glitter to her wings. I printed the sentiment and layered on to black and white cs and added a heart peel off.
Gold Fairy - I made the background on photo paper and stamped an all over image with versamark. I then heat embossed with gold embossing powder. Added a bow and embossed a background for the sentiment from white cs embossed with cuttlebug.
The fairy was printed from the CD and I added gold glitter to the background. The sentiment itself was printed and I just dotted and dashed around the edge with a black pigma micron pen.

Curls and Swirls entered in Tuesday Taggers

The background of swirls was printed from  a Flourishes CD by Debbi Moore. The fairy is lightly coloured with very fine mica powders and then triple embossed with clear embossing powder to give it a nice glaze, not noticeable in the camera shot - unfortunately. Layered a strip of paper across the card, added a button and raffia, layered and matted the fairy picture onto white cs. Stamped a birthday sentiment.

Just a note about ....My Topnote

This is a 'take' on a card made by Kathyc. I just loved her card so much and wanted to make a similar one.
Strips of paper glues to a scrap of card. Using the card I cut the top note from a nestability on C/Bug. Penned in the stitches. Made a flower again from nestabilites and cut on C/Bug. Stamped over it with versamark and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Added a button and a sentiment.

pretty flower made mainly on the C/Bug

Do you like my flower ? :)   I love it

Quite simple to make yet very very effective
I made mine out of card but it would be even simpler if you made it out of paper or vellum.... and still just as effective
Of course once made you can then pretty it up even more with sparkles, glitter, gems etc etc
There are 2 vid clips explaining how to make the flower and they are below for you to have a go  :)
