Stencil card

 I was at the NEC and looking round as you do and saw a demo using some embossing glue ant templates. I liked the effects so some managed to fall into my basket!
This card has been made with template and glue then glitter onto the fairy. It looks much better in real life really sparkly, I just need to find a way of sticking the black card onto the sparkly card as it keeps coming off!

Animal Card

 I made this card for an MSE'r for her Birthday, I found the image quite hard to ink up but after a lot of going over it did stamp up beautifully the first time I tried. I have coloured it with Pro markers and added a bow made with my bow easy, although I find it not easy as I am rubbish at tying bows lol.  I have added glossy accents to the rain drops and the puddle

Mothers day card

 This is the Mothers day card I have made. I have seen a few blogs recently were people have stamped an image onto patterned paper and I liked the effect so thought I would give it a go. I quite like how the card has turned out, although it has taken me ages to choose the DP.
I have faux stitched the inside of the inside of the card with a template from a magazine (but I forget which one it was) although it was mostly done free hand as I couldn't see the tracing on the paper

Smudged card

 I haven't played with my Lavinia stamps for a while so thought I would create a card for my Niece's birthday. I have inked the card with distress inks then added the stamps and lots of sparkle, I then had the bright idea to spray with shimmer mist and ended up smudging the circle where the fairies are. Sort of rescued it by adding more inks but I won't be making the same mistake again
I have also decorated the inside of the card

 This is the card I made for my Niece's birthday, I have used my new butterfly die's and added some flowers around the edge, although they match the papers better in real life than the photo shows

Birthday cake

This is the Birthday cake I made for my Sister in law, it is supposed to be a 'relaxing in the spa' cake
My brother thinks it should be a cake given to a porn star as it looks a bit pervy!!!!
Wasn't supposed to be lol, I don't have any fancy tools so all done by hand although I couldn't get the head to sit nicely which is why it's rolling back like it's drunk ;)

No time card

This is a thank you card for someone who was kind enought to send me some goodies as a secret santa over Christmas. Although it was March before they received it or late February!!
I saw a clock charm on my shopping but as ever when I got around to buying it had sold out. The idea for this card is no time to craft, the clock I have made from silver card and pocked a brad through it for the clock arms!! I also decorated the inside of the card too

Birthday Present

I saw these ideas in the Cards and papercraft magazine and just had to make some for my SIL birthday present. I was going to alter a note book for her as well but being on nights got in the way. I really like the calender one and think I will try and create one all for myself ;) I found the outside of the folder easy enough but sticking the recipe holders inside were a pain and if I was to do it again I would use 'strong' glue rather than sticky tape as a couple of mine fell apart and wasn't as nice looking as I wanted for a present. My Sister in laws 'real' present was a grapefruit scented candle she thought I wouldn't be able to get one but ha after a 'lot' of research I tracked one down ;)

Another Birthday card

Another Birthday card this time for my lovely SIL, I have coloured the image with pro markers, added German glitter glass to her wings. I have stitched some stars at the bottom using my sew easy, I think that pattern is going to be one of my favourites. Posts short and sweet at the moment as my computer is dying!!
