Hi and Welcome

Today's card features mainly TH products. 

I diecut the white piece on the top and the bottom. The crazy bird was stamped onto a scrap and coloured with Promarkers - C729 pastel blue, G829 pastel green, G827 soft green, G956 ocean teal and Y247 summer sun

I added dimensional magic to his eyes and beak.

The sentiment is from Unity, stamped in DOX cracked pistachio and embossed with 'dye boss'

Then layered onto a toning green card base

A change from Christmas


Welcome back

Only five more sleeps, I am sure all the littlies are starting to get excited

My card today has a background piece, where I coloured one side of the EF with a mauve ink pad, before running through my cuttlebug. It has highlighted the design nicely

I stamped my butterfly (Martha Stewart) onto a scrap of card that I had been experimenting with different sprays. I also cut some narrow strips to use as a background to the butterfly. The sentiment is die cut from a scrap of black card

Merry Christmas

 Welcome everyone, I hope you are all feeling festive!
I made this card for my sil who is also a cardmaker
I used a starry patterned paper for the background and cut the words from some pretty mauve card, which I then 'twinked' with Wink of Stella The holly leaves are punched, as are the sparkly berries

Welcome back to my blog.

This is one of the cards that I have made to send this year

I masked off a strip along the centre and coloured with distress oxides

I cut the j and y from a scrap of navy basil card using my Cameo Silhouette, and the snowflake from a scrap of pale blue card, I double embossed the snowflake with some sparkly ep and attached with some mounting tape.

....and again

I'm back with another Christmas card for my box
I have used the sketch from Sketch Saturday, and used papers from a Christmas pad by Rosie's Studio.
After cutting the pieces, I edged them with a gold metallic pen
I finished off with some gold metallic embroidery thread for the tie across the bottom

A Blog Named Hero - glitter and sparkle
