Hunkydory garden........

 This card should have scheduled last week whilst we were away but someone forgot to 'publish' it so it didn't!

Not a brilliant photograph of this Hunkydory image but it does look mcuh better in the 'flesh'.... the border frame is from Spellninders and I found a little hose pipe and a trowel embellishment in my embellishments box which I popped on...just added some foliage and flowers (just seen that I've forgotten to give the flowers a centre) and my card was finished.

I will try and catch up on your blogs at somepoint over the next couple of days...

Club Night - Groovi plate

Tonight is our monthly craft club meeting and the girls will be making a parchment card using one of the Groovi plate images, this plate is Tina's Florals and Corners 2... the girls can 3D the flowers if they wish...these are my sample cards.
Amazing how different colours change the look of your card
 I really enjoyed making these samples so much so  I have already ordered a Groovi plate to make a start on my Christmas cards.....

Groovy baby....

 Its been just over a week since my last post but we have managed to have a few days away making the most of the beautiful weather we have been having.

Its our club night next Wednesday and my friend Janet is doing a parchment project with the girls using one of the Clarity Groovy plates.

Janet very kindly let me trace some of her plates and this is what I've been playing with for the past couple of days.  How easy these plates make parchment now not like years ago using the white pencil to trace your designs.

This design isn't the one the girls are going to be doing but I'll post my samples on Wednesday morning for you to have a look at....I do believe I'm a little bit hooked...

Thanks to looking

Delicate Asters...

I just love the Heartfelt Creations stamps and papers....for this card I have used solely the papers.  Cut out and 3D an Aster flower and then added a glittered butterfly.  I can't remember where the sentiment came from as I've had it for a long time but I'm sure someone out there will be able to tell me.

Thanks for stopping by

Masculine card...

Its a couple of weeks since my last post but I've been unwell and then the hot weather came and it was just too hot in my craft room....but I've made a quick masculine card... the image is one from Hunkydorys Mens pads so just added an embossed background a couple of cog dies and a sentiment and my card was made.

Today is a lovely temperature so I can once again enter my craft room without melting, I know we complain about the weather but I think a lot of people found it just a little bit too hot...

Hopefully I'll try and catch up on some of your blogs over the weekend...

Birds and Blooms....New Home

Whilst doing some more sorting out I came across my Heartfelt creations paper pad for Birds and Blooms which was ideal for a New Home card... I really do need to use more of these images and stamps as they are beautiful...

I used my new Tim Holtz stamping platford to stamp out the leaves and flowers it makes stamping so easy, I've coloured my flowers with Ploychromos pencils and added some tiny seed beads in the centre using Glossy Accents... 

Thanks for stopping by...

More 3D embossing ....

Another 3D embossed card to show you....I've mounted the image onto a gold card but it doesn't show up very well.... 
Years ago a bought some Gare Rub on Metallic gilding waxes which are  in a little palette but in a solid form and that is what I've used to colour my card, they were ideal as I have used several different colours, I'm not too happy with the frame around my image so might decide to take it off and pop it into a frame but it was my first attempt working with black card...

thanks for stopping by
