Whimsy Stamps - Wedding Card

This digital stamp was a must have for me. I was looking through Whimsy's gallery and came across a card by " Lisa Cook - a Designer " . It really did have the WOW factor - jumped straight out at me....of course it gave me lots of inspiration. You must take a look at her gallery - adorable. This is the link ( if it works, still new at blogging )
The finished easel card is 7" x 7". Paper's and Embellishments are all K&Company.
A mixture of silver's/grey's and black was the theme, with a little green.
Butterfly is a black peel-off attached to acetate and stuck on with silicone glue.
Finished box measured 8" x 8"
Coloured with pro-marker's, small silver gems for button's and in the center of flower.

Recipient also wanted a wallet to place voucher/money in.
Used same paper's and ribbon's. Martha Stewart punches. Silver card was my base card.
This set was adored, so much so I was given £10. Imagine how pleased I was!!
It's the first time in a long time, that I actually really did enjoy making a card and felt that it was appreciated.
Thank you for looking!

Forever Friends - Anniversary Easel Card

A Dear friend of mine asked me to make a card for her elderly neighbours who have been married 65 years - Bless them!
So to cut a long story short, she turned up with the products. To my horror she had bought a "kit". To be honest I don't do kits. I feel like I haven't made and designed it myself................says Tammy who designs digital kits ;)
The kit consists of A4 size card, decoupage and envelope. So after sitting for day's looking at it, I decided to cut the A4 card up and do my own card. Changed it all to an easel card, which I adore doing a lot of just lately. So.....this is what I came up with. I had to make a box due to its size and embellishments - love using large roses. I didn't use all the cut-out sheets, so made a few "thank you" cards with what was left over. Sorry, I didn't take a picture of them. I am having camera problems at the moment, so have had to use my mobile phone. Hopefully they have turned out well enough for you to see.
Used lot's of blue/grey ribbons and flowers. Finished off with sapphire gems. As I do believe 65 years married is " sapphire "

Thank you so much for taking a peek!

fairy Dust Tilda

Made for my Daughter, Chloe. Its unusual for me as I always make large cards.
This is only 5" x 5". Magnolia paper's. Love the lilac's. Played with pro-marker's blending pen.
Must keep practicing!!

Birthday Card - Dinner Tilda

This is a large card 8" x 8" . I love to make big cards, only the problem is I have to make boxes too. I use such large flowers, that a box is a must have! I'd hate it if the recipient was to post it and then it got damaged. This was done in my fav colours and papers - DCWV. Coloured with pro-marker's and chalked around the edge. Used Martha Stewart punches
*Doily Lace Edge Punch
*Flourish Punch
Ribbon as been recycled from a box of chocolates - I never throw anything away!

Ballerina Tilda

This set was made for my Daughter's Special Friend who just turned 17. Ballerina Tilda is from Fairytale Pirates & Princess Collection. Just have to say that she is one of my favourates. I have used all Magnolia paper's and coloured with Pro-markers.Card set consisted of Gift box for the card and decorated Sweet Jar. Easel Card - 7" x 7"
Added some glitter, which gives a lovely finish. What girl wouldnt want a sparkly card?

Longing Tilda - so cute - placed her on the tag and Sweet Jar

Sweet Jar
Flowers are from Wildorchidcrafts - link on the left
I adore Pro-marker's.....very happy with the results they give. Been doing some playing with the Blending Pen.
Thank you for taking a PEEK.

Christmas Kits

Bette Duganitz Kit's are beautiful. She spend's such a lot of time sewing her work, then transforms them to digital. Too time consuming for me, but end result is stunning.

Baby Kits

Graphic's used for these kit's are © Bette Duganitz and NitWit Collection's.
I had a ball designing these as the paper's are to die for. Printing quality is out of this world. Once I have worked out blogging, I will place some links to the artist's own sites.
