More Cards with Gilding Flakes

Got my gilding flakes out and had another crafting  session with them. 

One or 2 of the stamps didn't come out very well, as I chose the wrong colour background. 

 I think I will stick to using the gold and silver flakes on a black background from now on!

Pink and Girly!!

Got my trusty promarkers out and had a bit of a colouring session - and ended up with these very pink and girly cards! I used Craftwork Card sentiments with them, I love their products and often use them on my cards. 

I sell some of my cards at work and will take these in to add to the basket. This year I am aiming to raise £100 for the Blue Cross who want to build a new animal rescue centre nearby.

Bird on a branch

The 'small bird on a branch' is one of my favourite dies from Marianne Creatables, I love the silhouette of the bird and have used here on 3 different but similar square birthday cards

Waste not....

As I am on strike today and the weather is a bit miserable, I might as well make the most of it and do some crafting!

This card was made using the left over waste from die-cutting out some black scroll shapes as a background. Doesn't look too bad, does it!

Cards for a Baby Boy

I've had this stamp of a large teddy bear for ages and so thought it was about time it was used! The wooden embellishments were from from a Christmas pack, but thought they worked well with the bear.

Has anyone spotted the 'deliberate' mistake on the second card --- yes I've just noticed that the heart background paper is upside down!!
