Doily Shape

Made this card for the grandchildren to give to their grandparents its for the same couple as the previous card is. What a nightmare trying to get gold without it being a horrible yellow colour or mirri card which is ok but just so easily marked. Cut this card out on my cricut with the wild card cartridge, then just layered it up then cut cream centre with nestie embossed with divine swirl the mariane cutter, is the gold centre then cutout heart and 50 with cuttlebug, pearls and flowers from stash, sentiment done on the computer. Quite pleased with the result !! Off to bed now been playing up here long enough.. Good night . Aud x

Happy Anniversary

Lovely day here with us in Huntly, got my washing all done and house tidy, so up to the craft room for the rest of the day. Made this card for a golden wedding, used darice embossing folder and nesties for the top half of the card, and the good old faithful swiss dots embossing folder, ms punch and lace from my stash although it looks quite cream here it is white, lady just wanted a clean and simple card so hopefully she will be pleased enough with this. Off now to do a birthday card. Aud x

Gift Card Holder

Been pottering around trying to make nice cards for gift cards for xmas, so came up with this and really pleased but think it needs something else on the front - open for suggestions !!! Used my cricut to cut out the shape then shadowed it then cut the size below it, its from the storybook cartridge, my friend Carol spotted this shape and its like the top note cutter from SU so thanks Carol !! The papers are SU ones from last year, but you could use any kind of papers, the handles are also cut with my cricut, Ive embossed the back of the bag with a folder, but numpty forgot to take a picture of it !, I stamped a sentiment inside and made a wee pocket for my gift card, tryed to cut bits so the card would sit in but it just looked tacky and I didnt like it and didnt want to spoil my bag. The brad and ribbon is from stash and I cut the snowflake and put a wee pearl on it. Off for another potter around. Aud

This is what the inside looks like !!

Christmas Wishes

Made this card a wee bit different just a change from being just square so I folded in half of the front then decorated both front and inside with papers from my stash, cut insert with nesties and corners are with cuttlebug cutters. Image on the front was from my stash from last year, mounted onto a nestie then decorated the corners with candy. Put on two photos to show you the end result but not quite sure how to sort out the displaying of them with mr blogger. Thats all for one day I think I have had a very productive day and thoroughly enjoyed tootering about myself...
Back tomorrow with some more of my creations. Aud x

Xmas Bauble

Well made this xmas card with my friend Carol and what a laugh it was, it took a whole afternoon to make it , between yapping and trying different things and yapping to much and getting things wrong but it was great fun and really pleased with the end result. Used the cricut wild cards to make the round shape then christmas cheer for the bauble , then embossed layers with embossing folders, image from sugar nellie coloured in with prismas but my camera playing up just now so colours dont look so good. I added ribbon from stash and glitter brads I bought and afterwards thought what will I do with these but they actually fit this card really well, again used the cricut to cut the tags for sentiment then stamped with a stamp after about 5 trials I actually gave up with tag stamping and got Carol to do it for me... This will be a card that I wont forget making pop over to Carols blog tomorrow she said she will post her's looking forward to her story about this card.. and also her end result as neither of us finished our cards at the time.

Furry Friends

Ok Carol you are responsible for this stamp being bought I saw the one on your blog and just thought it looked so cute and xmassy, and it fell into my basket at the papeterie on sat... Coloured it in with prisma pencils then glittered it up with glamour dust. Cut the shapes out with cricut , can see this cartridge getting well used it is so good and they all fit so nice into each other, who needs nesties ??? Gems and candy from stash. The base card was from craftworks which I must say I do like their cards and candy and they are so quick to use instead of cutting and folding your own. Of back to my craft desk not a day for doing much else.

Red Baubles

Been having a play around with my cricut today and getting different shapes and sizes this is a frame from the new cartridge elegant edges it is really good and versatile you can cut , layer and also cut borders to match the frames so here is an example used the papermania bauble stamp but only used half of it if that makes sense then embossed it with red to make it stand out I then edged my paper with barn door distressing ink, added gems then cut the border to match and added ribbon from bee crafty in Elgin along with more gems.The ribbon has merry christmas on it and thats why I havent added a sentiment its just you cant see it with the photo as it was reflecting. Off for another play around with some more shapes. Aud x

Wish my fudge came oot looking like this had some at our card session on sat it was ok but really soft but my dish came home empty so mustve been ok, unless all my crafting friends were just hungry !!!


Busy crafting mad today, glitter everywhere as well as the card here, distressed the top of the card with faded jeans ink the put on a scrap of paper to get the snow effect then glittered it up with glamour dust lovely glitter but oh messy !!!! Then I stamped dasher in black along with the trees from hero arts stamp set then added gems to dashers antlers.

Woo hoo on a roll today with the xmas cards I might not be the same tomorrow it will be a roll over in the bed for another 40 winks, but will cross that bridge when I come to it.. Used weathered wood distressing ink for the bottom part of the card them embossed it with cuttlebug folder and then took a bit of sandpaper and gave it a rub quite like the effect, it has a vintage look, cut the snowflake with the sizzix die on shimmery card, I wished I had a bigger stamp for the sentiment its a wee bit small, but looks ok. Gems and ribbon fom stash.

Xmas Baubles

Well its coming up to xmas time again and well behind schedule with my cards so im on the clean and simple look, just love this bauble I tried to get it last year but wasn't lucky enough then, but I have it now so it full speed ahead. Did this one in black and white with red gems and quite like it, stamped my baubles then embossed them to sharpen them, punched border out with fiskars punch and then added silver ribbon from bee crafty in Elgin sentiment from computer and gems from stash. Away to bash on with more xmas cards. Aud x

1st Birthday

Made this card using a LOTV square and cut it with nesties, papers are again from craft creations cut with a fiskars punch, must say you can always rely on fiskars punches to cut all kinds of card sometimes get dissapointed with the MS ones are they are picky with what kind of card they cut. Sentiment done on the computer and candy from stash. Would really love to be getting on with xmas cards as Im way behind schedule with them. But hopefully get my other orders up to date this week and get on with them. Hopefully Kara will give me some inspiration this sat. catch up with you all soon .Aud

Papers are from craft creations.
