Pink Petticoat Christmas

Well it's been a while hasn't it? lol
I can't believe where the time goes, I have made these 3 cards for a chance to win a 'slice' (see the Pink Petticoat blog for more details)
I printed off the papers with just the first card in mind, but after cutting out the letters on my Cricut I realized that I could use the negative of the images for a second card, then I had a piece of paper left so made another quick card :)
The holly leaves on the first card are cut by hand, the ones on the other 2 are cut with the cricut, there is loads of glitter, embossing powder and glitter flock applied - well it is Christmas!!

Busy doing nothing

I have got the week off work this week, and it feels great to get up each day :) I have spent the last few days trying to reorganise my craft stuff to get my stamping stuff more accessible. So I have been moving everything about to get my ink pads, powders and heat gun into a drawer rather than in boxes and having to pull out 3 boxes each time I want to emboss. I have managed to trash everything else in the process though :) Here are a couple of pics of what it looks like now and 2 more cards. The first one is my first attempt with promarkers.

Bad Blogger :)

I can't believe it's been over a month since I blogged, time sure does fly. I have made a few cards (below) I have been playing with my cricut and design studio - not actually making much, just playing :)
If you want any details of card supplies used please ask.
I will try to keep a bit more up to date - but I can't promise !!!

blog candy alert

A second post... you wait ages for one then two come along together :)
Caz is giving away some stamped images on her blog, check it out HERE


You may have noticed it's been a bit quiet here.... that's because I've been in Spain :) First day back at work today booo. I thought I'd better put a post up with some recent cards that I can show now they have been received.

This was stamped onto acetate with white stazon then I used sakura glitter pens to colour in the champagne glasses. I tried to fold the acetate but it just broke into two pieces so I used a 'pokey' tool to make holes ans stitched the edge!!

A spring card made with an image from pink petticoat which I opened in publisher and resized it to get it to fit into my cricuted (is that a word?) frame

Another spring card made for one of my SBS8 sisters for a 'spring' insired swap.

Another cricut card for my Dad xx

The wording here was designed with the design studio as individual letters were squashed together and welded to make one piece. The DAD letters are stamped with tool images from clevercut.

Happy Birthday to me

Well it was my Birthday on Sunday, I received some gorgeous cards which I just had to share, you may notice a couple of anniversary cards - it was also my 13th wedding anniversary on the same day :)
I received 2 new carts for my cricut and some money which I have used to buy the design studio for the cricut as I have been playing with the trial and the 'weld' feature is great, so hopefully I will get that tomorrow :) here are my cards.

A big hug to everyone who sent me a card there are a lot of ideas I will be 'borrowing' there!
