No Patterned Papers at Cute Card Thursday.

Well we have another challenge at Cute Card Thursday, where the theme is 'no patterned papers'. Now this sounds simple enough at first, but when I look at my cards it is quite surprising how many of them do have patterned papers...... even if it is just a sneaky little mat here and there!

So I made this card, using my tonic dies and three colours of plain card.

I really like the stark clean look against the delicate fairy.

So now we would really like to see what you create, so don't forget to hop over to Cute Card Thursday and add you creations.

Thanks for visiting.

Fab n Funky - Sponsored by Digistamps for Joy

 Hi there.

I am back with a new card for Fab n Funky, sponored by Digistamps for Joy, who sponsored this lovely image.

I reconnected with some old friends, in the form of my Promarkers for this challenge, and I had a real blast colouring in this image.
In fact, I had so much fun with it that I made up my card without following the challenge theme, which was Bingo. Slap on the wrist for me!!

I hope that you can do a better job of following this week's theme than I did, and I am looking forward to seeing all your creations on te Fab n Funky blog.

Bye for now and thanks as always for visiting.

Wedding Bells Edgeable - the final bit of romance for this week!

And this is my last 'lovey dovey' sample for this week....I think I am all romanced out for now!

This card features another die form the Crafters Companion edgeables range and, although it is actually wedding bells, I think you could get away with this for Christmas too.

Once again the Luxury card stock has come out to play.....if you get a chance to grab some, go for it as there is absolutely loads in the pack.

My wedding bells have been used as both an 'edge' and a standalone die cut, and I have finished off with a die cut sentiment from another one of Sara'a Signature ranges.

So there we are - enough of Valentines...bring on Easter! Watch this space!

Thanks as always for visiting.

Happy Valentines Day - Graceful Heart Edgeable

It's February 14th, so here I am with another Crafters Companion Edgeable die for you too see.

Ince again a very simple card, but this shows that these dies don't just have to be used for edges. You can cut through the bottom part and separate them so they can be used independently.

Aren't the delicate filigrees in these hearts gorgeous?

They would look really good with a bit of contrasting backing paper mounted behind them too.

I have used a combination of luxury card stock and centura pearl card for this sample, which gives a really sturdy card.

By the day - the little decorative corners that you see also come with the heart die.....a perfect little extra for a little bit of wow factor.

Thanks for visiting today.

Wild About you at Fab n Funky

Not much longer to enter this week's challenge over at Fab n Funky!

This week the theme is 'Wild About You' and we have been playing with some lovely images from The Paper Shelter.

I have decoupaged mine and used the corresponding backing paper.

Thanks for visiting for this very quick post.

I will be back on Wednesday with the next Fab n Funky challenge.


Special Occasion Edgeable

Hi there. I am back with a card that I made for Crafters Companion using their Special  Occasion edgeable die and their luxury glitter card stock.

I have opted for a Wedding card here, but you could change up the colours and use this card for any occasion really.

This is a very quick and simple make, with the pearl dots used for the 'icing'.

Hope you like it and thanks for visiting.

Love is in the air.....

Hi there,

On this cold and dull day I thought I would warm your hearts with this anniversary card that I made using  various items from Stamps by Chloe.

This is a really simple card to make and takes no time at all, but at the same time it looks quite special I think.

First of all I took the Heart Shaped wreath stamp, and stamped and embossed on to pearlescent paper, before adding some gorgeous Wow embossing powder. I also used an embossing pen to eade the card and applied the same powder to make a bit of a frame.

The cute little flowers are also dies form the Chloe range and the perfect size for this heart I think.

Finally I added pearl dots before matting and layering and hey presto...job done!

Hope you like it. I'm off to make the most of the dreary day, and get on with some crafting!

Thanks for visiting.
