funky wedding card

am back with a wedding card which has a different twist to the ones I normally make. It was for a young couple and I wanted it to be 'funky' so I chose asterisk shaped flowers and happy fun papers from nitwits (will find the name of them and pop back later with a link)

the cardstock in peach, blue and green is all pearlescent, hence the nice shine and lots of glittered edges too.

twinkling H2O's were used to colour the image..

and the magnolia doo hickey leaf die just lends itself to anything romantic - the leaves remind me of hearts

Di's Digi downloads Baby Girl card

a warm sunshiny hello - its fabulous weather out there today so have been for a great walk already and its good to feel the afternoon sun on your face!
As promised, am back with another card this week, made with New Beginnings from Di's Digi Downloads (if you are interested in this digi please contact me or Di and we can get in contact with you as its an older digi which might not be on the site at the moment (link in side bar to Di's Digi's)

Updated to add - this image has been re released in January 2013 and is called Hammock Slumber, just as adorable as ever, and you can find it here

coloured with twinkling H2O's and glamour dust glitter added for some sparkle

just love the shine on the painted bits and the blossom paper (it came in a 12x12 sheet and I dont know where from!?)

February cards

Seems a while since posting and been very bad at keeping blog up to date so here goes - some cards and for those who came to a recent workshop, sorry for the wait!
I have my old printer working again so now I can print digi images without the ink running (new printer is great for everything except the digi's or I haven't got the settings right).
Anyway onto the cards, they are all made with lots of white, so nice and clean and fresh..

An easel one with a Tatty Teddy / Me To You stamp suitable for spring / Easter or any other birthday occasion.. the greys are broken up with the lemon and bright cerise / magenta colours.

I love the embossing folders used on this one, especially the stitching effect... one folder is a cuttlebug one, the other a papermania one; both a gorgeous 5 x 7 size. can of course leave the inside blank for your own message and the partial embossing is great for this..

a sympathy card made with a gorgeous detailed stamp from Time to Sow

Confirmation card made with various brands of dies and embossing folders from Provo Craft Cuttlebug, Cheery Lynn, Sizzix and Spellbinders (okay it wasn't my intention to use as many different die brands on one card, but they all worked quite well.. I think ..LOL)

..and not forgetting that Easter is around the corner, a kick stand card made with Penny Black Easter March stamp..

and the inside:

the last couple of cards are made from Images Dianne Carubia did for us last year over at Di's Digi Downloads - simple and striking designs for a very special occasion.

that's all for today.. more to follow this coming week.
