Evening all,
Another week over and I'm spent!
Thought I would share a card with you that I demoed at In2crafting a couple of weeks back using my cuttlebug, new embossing folders and spellbinders nestabilities.
I showed how you can cut a nestie shape out around a stamped image while not cutting right through the image. The new embossing folder is called "In Bloom", one of many new designs by Craft Concepts and I then embossed a double line below the pattern to complete the look. I also used a small 2  1/2 " Happy Birthday folder at the bottom then gently rubbed Vintage Photo Distress Ink over to make it all Pop!. Promarkers were used to colour the Magnolia.
Hope you like.

Gap Cards

Hi everyone
I have some more cards to show that we made on one of my previous workshops at In2crafting. All in all the class went really well I think but of course after the class people see the cards on display and say I wish I booked on that one! So the moral of that story is you never no what exciting cards you could be making so just book on!
We used a template that I designed myself using the cricut to get the basic card shape and had to cut it from A3 white card. The designer paper is from Papermania which I have just found out is a one off and discontinued so if you can get hold of it, do! The flowers are from a woodware paper punch called Cherry I think! and the sentiment is one of my good friends Lynne's Digi downloads - Sentiments4you 

This card was fun because we had to punch out 4 flower clusters with a woodware punch, overlap them across the gap to give strength to the middle of the card whilst being careful not to glue the back of the card. The sentiment was from a set by Jane Gill (Woodware) 

Ahhh this one was using the Papermania papers again. We die cut the butterflies with a Cuttlebug set of cut and emboss, then stamped across one of them with a script stamp, then used inks and glamour dust to make them pop. Also we used one of Lynne's sentiments punched with the 1 1/2" woodware punh to complete the card.
So these were the cards we made and I hope you enjoy seeing them.

My Baby's Birthday

Hiya all,
I thought I would share with you a card I made for my baby who has just turned 17.
It's so difficult to make cards for them as they grow bigger but right now he likes to wear designer clothes, so I thought this was appropriate.See what you think.
This is a Whiff of Joy image stamped on a nestability shape coloured with Promarkers. 

But the day before was my niece Danielle's 23rd Birthday so I made her this card.
I hope you Like Hugs
Di xx

Back again

Hello again,
So sorry I haven't blogged for a while. Thankyou to all you wonderful people who asked if I was ok. I think I lost my mojo for a time what with my laptop braking then balancing family with work and so on....You know what it's like. Anyway i'm trying to get my mojo back.
Here are some cards that I made for my last cuttlebug class .
With this card we cut two lattice pieces and stuck them down with double sided tape. Then filling in the open spaces with glamour dust glitter to cover the sticky bits. The green panel is single sided pearl card once embossed was sanded to make the butterflies stand out. The frame was then cut using a nestability and magnetic mat. Then magnolia in cute skirt was coloured with Promarkers, cut out and popped on with some 3D foam pads.  

With this card we cut a white piece of card and embossed it. Turned the card over so the de-bossed side up and swooshed a memento ink pad across the surface to colour. Then die cut topper with nestabilities and then embossed a cuttlebug bird cage and cut out. 

Lastly we cut a 7"x5" white card and embossed across the bottom. Then using the Hougie Board we embossed lines above and below also both sides of the ribbon. we then cut three small squares and embossed them.
I hope you like them.
