Favourite 5 of 2012

Today is the last day of 2012 and it is fun to look back on the past year of creating. It certainly looks like I have been in party mode with the several 21st and engagement cards that I have made this year. 
This first one is made with a free stamp that was on a magazine.
                                           This one is made with a circle flit it die from sizzix.
                                                                     Posted in April

                                          I love the vintage look of this one posted in February.
                                                    This one was made in March
                                                        Lastly one made in December

Here's to hope for a more creative 2013 and I hope everyone has a safe and happy year.

Xmas Snowman

For this card I have used the My Favorite Things Holiday Hugs Snowman. He is coloured with copic pens and the scarf paper pieced. The die on the top is Memory box frostyville border and the trees at the bottom are Tim Holtz sizzix tree line die. To which I have added glitter and polar white flower soft.

Have a great day

Xmas Acetate

Here is one of Christmas cards that I made for this year.
On the base card I used a border punch and folded it over and finished the rest of the card with acetate. I die cut the trees twice, one for each side of the acetate and added glitter.
 I finished it off with string, button and a snowflake punch.
 The image inside can easily be seen through the acetate.
Stamps: Heroarts
Paper: white and green card stock
Other: Martha Stewart border punch and snowflake punch, Tim Holtz sizzix tree line die, string, button glitter.

Twisted Gift Card

I hope that everyone had a wonder Christmas and a cherished time with family and friends. I have had a busy morning, all the Christmas decorations and crockery are packed and boxed ready for next year. I have some time along here before I head out to the boxing day sales so I thought I would share with you this gift card that I made.

Earlier this year I learnt how to make this twisted gift card holder. Using a strip of card with just a the right fold was quick and easy to make at the last minute.
Using red, black and white for a male theme and kept the embellishments simple.
 The trees were die cut and embossed before adding a snow marker.{liquid ink after it has dried and heated with a heat gun it puffs up to look like snow}. I also added some the the punched snowflake in the top corner.
Inside is the perfect pocket to add the gift card.

Stamps: CBG 2011
Paper: Kaiser craft shaken not stirred collection
Other: Brilliance ink, craft concepts embossing folder leafy flourish, MFT die-namics layered label die, sizzix Tim Holtz tree line die, Martha Stewart snowflake punch, Marvy snow marker

Happy Birthday

Summer is well and truly summer here in Queensland and many of our flowers are in bloom.
For this card I used the MFT hibiscus and fancy flourish die-namic to create the flower. The stamp is the free on that I received last month. The papers are from DCWV citrus stack and is one of my favourites, although I have used the red card the photo shows up a bit pink.

 I even splashed out and created something for the inside of the card using MFT layered label die-namic.

I started out using a MFT sketch but altered it to fit the stamp used.
Inspiration : MFTWSC101

Stamps: Papermania strictly party stamp, MFT Big Greetings
Paper: DCWV citrus paper stack, cream card stock
Other: Oval & oval scallop nestabilities, hot glue, copic pens, MFT die-namics, forever in time glitter gems
