Teacher's Pet

Recently brought these buttons with the view of making some 'thank you teacher' cards, as I have non stocked up. And as I have another card party coming up thought it would eb a good idea! So good old DCM to the rescue with a recipe of 4 brads/eyelets, 3 circles, and 2 rectangles, with added ribbon too! The stripey stuff along the middle is some ribbon as well as the mini ric rac.

Keep it Simple

Oh the impossibility of keeping my cards simple! Find them much harder to do. Pleased with the results though.... Just stocking up on engagement cards. Saw on someones blog 3 nrads together and it gave me the idea of an engagement ring. I love the colour of this card, got a gorgeous iridescent sheen. Yummy!

Pearl for Merle

This is a recent commission for a lady who wanted a 30th anniversary card (PEARL) managed to incorporate the names (mike & Eve) by using some stickers form the DCWV wedding stack, and some off cut papers. The pearl heart I am ashamed to say is another sticker (I like to make things like that rather than buy) although it was a present so doesnt count. Had the idea in mind of how I wanted this to look, and came out very close.

Now I know if something is not working out you should walk away and come back to it, but for some reason I kept trying to perservere to get this card right. But STILL wasn't happy, so I eventually slept on it (not literally of course!) and thought- it needs detail! So added some diamantes, primas and a few dragonflies and ah! thats better! Happy now :) So here is the BEFORE

and AFTER shot

and this was another card using the off cuts, I smudged the stamped 'Get well soon' by accident, so kept on smudging and thought it looked alright! Good old discovery by accident!

Young @ Heart

This is my card for the Wednesday Stamper topic, of 'Growing Old'. Used a image that was in a photo album one of there sample photos. The border is made up of images that were on a brown paper bag, that I cut out. The used some definition stamps and selected words that I thought asociated with old age to include some stamping! Used chalks to brighten the picture.
