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

One condition it had to be One Direction and I jokingly said one direction to the bin lol.
I used centura pearl card
Matted and layered with black card
And another layer of centura pearl. 
I got the picture from google.
And I added black pearl. And I used my favourite glue in the world collall all purpose.

Sympathy card

Well today I made a sympathy card for a family friend who lost her husband last week.
He was a lovely man whom loved rallying so much. 
For the last few days I sat at my desk thinking but couldn't muster a card up. And today I am seeing her for the first time since his death and had to make this card. 
I used centura pearl card and the decoupage sheet was a CUP sheet that I purchased a while ago. I printed the decoupage onto centura pearl card stock.
I hope I have done it justice. 
Also the verse which also came from CUP says.

Take some time in the silence
If you're feeling low.
To think upon their memories,
To bask within their glow.
I know its not easy,
To let a loved one go.
Your heart will continue grieving,
Because you loved them so.
But eventually it will get better,
I promise this for you.
And may the joy of being reunited one day,
Always help you through. 

I just hope that she will take comfort that I will be there for her xx

April's challenge - flowers


Well I decided to enter into the Crafter's companion monthly challenge blog which this month's theme was flowers.
I raided my Barkley paper pack and came out with this card.
The base card is centura pearl.
The card is the card from the paper pack which I cut down and placed onto centura pearl. The swing card I fixed onto the card and decoupaged Barkley & Purrdey,  I added pink and purple ribbon from my old stash.  I used the small rose die'sire die and cut the flowers using pink and purple core'dinations cardstock. And added clear jewels in the centre x
