Turtle Diamond dot

 I am usually card maker, but lately I have lost my creative mojo. I wanted a painting for the guest room, so I thought I would give diamond dot image a go. It was so much fun, and it turned out great. I even found a frame for it that matched the guest room furniture.

 I made this card for a challenge theme "Congratulations. "

I used the clear stamp set that came with a craft magazine. I stamped the images in black ink, then heat embossed them. Cut out the frame mat and attached the ribbon. I used the congrats pop up die to make the inside.

Have a great Day.

Thinking of you Poppies

Today in Australia it is Anzac Day, the day we remember those who lost their lives in war.

 I made this card with a watercolour background using a clear block and distress oxide inks. I then stamped the outline of the poppies in black ink. Then filled the flowers with distress ink. I die cut the sentiment 4 times, gluing them together for a stacked sentiment. I added some nuvo drops to finish the card.

Thanks for looking today.......

Baby Shower

Today I am sharing the card that I made for my daughter's baby shower, and yes, we are expecting a little pink bundle later in the year.
I used this Mo Manning rubber stamp, that I have had for some time, it is a favourite of mine for making baby cards.

Inside I used dies from Karen Burniston, the parcel pop-up and baby charms. As you open the card the charms rise up out of the box as you open it.

 Thanks for looking today.

Triple Panel pop up

I made this card recently for a friend's birthday.
I pulled out a stamp set that I have had for a while, and inside I made a triple panel pop up. I also went stash diving for the designer paper that I have used for the background and the sentiment is from a sticker sheet.

 Thanks for looking today.

1st Birthday Puppy

I made this card for my Granddaughter's 1st Birthday earlier this month.
The last time I saw her she was just learning to say the word Dog. I made the puppy and added it to the designer paper background and die cut grass, I added the die cut kite, to match in with the designer paper.
The designer pack had some nice rainbow paper, so I layered it inside and added the Spinner square pop-up for the sentiment.


My Favorite Things - Puppy Love
Karen Burniston - 1042 -Spinner square pop up
Elizabeth Craft Designs - Kite
Kaisercraft designer paper pack Fine & Sunny
