Elegant Easter Card

 Hello everyone,

I would like to share my latest make:



For the background I used Pion Easter Greetings paper. I added Cheery Lynn Designs English Tea Party Doily and on top of it a Recollections Doily embellishment.



I created a decorative strip with Spellbinders A2 Bracket Borders One, and a strip with a computer generated sentiment.


Next, I added some hand made flowers and Sue Wilson Bold Scrolled Vine dies. To finish my design, I added some pearl.

Spring Birthday Card with Flowers and Butterflies

 Hello everyone,

I would like to share my latest make: a card for a friend's birthday.



The flowers are hand made, using Spellbinders flower dies. I inked edges with Shaded Lilac Distress Ink and added little flower stamens.



The sentiment was computer generated and die cut using Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles.



Butterflies are Cricut cuts from my stash, one of those free for a week deals...

Jack-o-lantern in a Window Card

 Hello,

Just wanted to show my latest make:



I created a shadow box to give a dimensional look into the window and Jack-o-lantern peaking through it.



I used crackle paint on the shutters to give it old and creepy look...



I recycled plastic cover for Cricut mat to create illusion of the glass window and egg carton for bricks around the window.



I made a flower container and added some moss and little blue flowers. Behind the window, you can see old looking drapes, made with cheese cloth that I pained with black Dilysions spray and Jack-o-lantern distressed with some black and brown ink.

Ornate Poinsettia Christmas Card

 Hello everyone,

I hope this post finds you well and safe.

I would like to share one of my Christmas cards today:




I used 49 and Market Christmas cardstock and Heartfelt Creations Large Poinsettia die and stamp.



The card turned out quite dimensional and ornate, I think....


Sentiment is a generic die that I bought on Amazon, no brand name, but cuts great and looks really nice.


One more look at the finished card and box it comes with.

I hope you enjoyed stopping by.

Take care and stay safe,

I created this card using traditional Christmas colors but went with bright and fresh look.



I used Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Rectangles and decorated them with gold liquid pearls.



Poinsettia is Heartfelt Creation Large Sparkling Poinsettia. I used Liquid Platinum embossing powder to heat emboss the flower. Pine branches are Impression Obsession Pine branch diecuts. I added a little seam binding ribbon bow on a vintage tag, tucked into the floral arrangement.

Fancy Witch Hat Halloween Card

 Hello everyone!

I would like to show off my latest make:



I created the background by layering purple cardstock and gray cardstock, embossed with black texture paste. I love using this damask stencil!



The hat was cut using Cricut, then I decorated it with purple seam binding ribbon and black rose lace ribbon.



I added some black looped wire to finish off the hat decoration.



I also added this fancy looking corset-like detail to the card to finish my design.

Fancy Witch Boot Halloween Card

 Hello dear friends,

I hope this post finds you well and safe. I would like to share with you my latest make:




My dear blog friend Sara invited me to join the challenge she is hosting over at TFJB Challenge Blog and I could not pass that, especially it being a Halloween themed challenge.


I had fun making this fancy all blinged up Witch Boot in Purple, Orange and Green. You probably can't tell just by looking at the picture, but the black bottom part of the shue is black velvet. The picture does not give it justice how rich and fancy this Witch must be!



 I stamped TH Halloween sentiment on a piece of 13arts cardstock and heat embossed it in glitter red embossing powder. I added a lot of blind onto the Spellbinders Oval Frame.



Here is a closeup picture of the boot with all the bling, ruffles and glamour!
