Damask Decor card

I have to give credit to Karon who inspired me to try this kind of card. I used a different cart to the one she used which is one I'd barely looked at previously, Damask Decor. There is a little sparkle to the card as I used some lightly glittered cardstock. The layers are cut at 4" and the background paper at 4 1/2" I've lifted the flower layers with foam pads to add depth. The card itself is a spellbinders die which I've inked round the edges with distress ink and then filled in up to the embossed line with a toning Copic marker to give interest and tone.
I do enjoy reading your comments. Thanks for looking.

Pretty Lady

Pretty Lady is a digi stamp from Cuddly Duddly. I've used my Copics as usual. The background is done with a Debbie Moore embossing sheet on my Big Shot Pro. The lace is again from Ribbons and Rosettes, the background paper from one of my crafting CD's as is the paper I've made the box from that she's sitting on. The greeting is stamped, layered and mounted with glue dots for a little depth.

50th Anniversary

I was really short of time making this card as I'd not realised how near my friends anniversary is. I certainly struggled for inspiration probably due to the combination of urgency and this very hot weather we are having.
The actual shaped card I made in DS from Ornamental Iron and the background paper is a handmade one which I've had in my stash years. The lacy border is from Ribbons and Rosettes, yes still playing with that one! I've threaded gold ribbon through the border and added gems on the points. the gold heart is from Victorian Romance and the 50 from Plantin Schoolbook. The rose is from Art Philosophy and I've added glitter after making it up. The congratulations is a sizzlit die. Inside is a simple happy anniversary.

Green Ribbon Wishes

The ribbons on this card are from Ribbons and Rosettes which I've been playing with for a few days. The stamp is coloured with Copics which I hope I'm getting better at. The paper is from my stash that I've had for a very long time so I'm afraid I can't remember who's it is.

How many bags does a woman need?

That's the question my DH asked me! I told him it was a silly question. These are just 3 of the many bags I've made. Some I keep for myself, I gave one as a raffle prize and quite a few as gifts to my dearest friends as they know how much work goes into the making of one.

Some jewelry I've made

Just a selection from the jewelry I make as a change from cards. It's not all for myself, some I make for gifts and occasionally to sell.

Sending Hugs

I made this card to send to someone who needs hugs. The digi stamp is by  mjm and coloured with Copics which I'm just learning to use. The frame is from Ornamental Iron 2. Hope you like it.

Fan Card

I made this card with my Cricut using Ornamental Iron and DS. I decorated it with pearls and a silver ribbon bow. The paper is by Lost & Found.

Love Card coloured with Copics

I'm just learning to use Copics and really enjoying the experience. The lace was made with a Fiskers punch, the handmade velum flowers with a Tonic punch.
