Golden wedding commission card

Well I have made a card after weeks of not doing one.
My mother-in-law wanted a golden wedding anniversary for her relatives in Canada.
So this is what I came up with
I used centura pearlised card and gold mirri card,
The decoupage and backing paper comes from the party paws cd rom.
The gems and ribbon is from my old stash and I used collal all purpose glue and collal tacky glue.

A taste of India

Hi all

Well I cannot believe that we are in October already it's scary.
Well today I fancied doing a bit of messy crafting which I haven't done for a while.


Crafter's companion Kraft card
Taste of India Indian Lattice embossing folder. 
Neenah desert storm card
Taste of India tiger tiger stamp set

I used the A4 embossing folder and distressed the edges using Tim Holtz vintage photo distress ink.
I stamped the Tiger onto the Neenah desert storm card and coloured the image with my spectrum noir pens, I used CT1, CT2, Or1 and Or2 then EB2, EB3 and EB5.
I used a thin double sided tape and then put on some glitter around the edges. 
I used the ribbon and gems from my stash. 
I stamped the sentiment with Stalin ink pad onto the bengals desert storm card, then used my Die'sire die tag to cut it out then I used the distress ink to tie it in with the card.

Thank you for looking xx

A few cards I made today

Hi everyone,
Today I managed to make some cards even though I have a trapped nerve in my neck. 
My 1st card I made was using the purple pearlised card, the backing and decoupage came from the Barkley paper pack, the gems I had from my stash.
The stepper was made by using the crafts too presscut die and I used it for the first time today.

And the other cards are made from the snowman & snow dog paper kit I have enjoyed putting these together.
Thank you for looking.

Snowman & snow dog paper kit arch

Well for the first time in a last week or two I have managed to get my snowman & snow dog paperkit and have a play. 
I need to start getting focused and make some Xmas cards, hubby is going away for a golfing this weekend and I am going to do some cards. 
I do prefer cd crafting but I do love this paper crafting kit I have managed to make these 4 today and I intend to make the rest up within this weekend :-). 
Hope you all have a good evening.

Gave it a go and succeeded

Hi all

I haven't blogged for a while as I wanted to get myself  focused in losing weight, which I am doing and I needed to get my mojo back for my card making. 

Well I watched Leann from crafter's companion do the fab stepper card and using the new Christmas die'sire die on create and craft.

After a few weeks of losing my mojo I decided that I need to pull my finger out and try the new stepper card.
I used centura pearlised card
O'holy night Die'sire die 
And a silver rainbow effect paper behind.

I absolutely loved making this it looks like I will be making a few more.

Thank you for looking Sam xx
