Christmas Topiary Card

I stamped and coloured this image a couple of years ago and it's been in my 'toppers' box for ages waiting to be used. Finally decided I needed to do something with it. Kept it simple but I like it. I thought about selling this stamp be decided to keep it. Very pretty I think.

Vet card

Craftsuprint to the rescue again! Wasn't sure what to do for this one but found this ideal decoupage image on Craftsuprint. And took no time to do when Brother SNC cut out the tricky bit for me!

80th Birthday Card

I was supposed to be making this card when I made the holly wreath on the last post. I was really pleased with this and really enjoyed making it and playing with my Spellbinder dies. Hope you like the finished result too.

Holly Wreath Christmas Card

This is a card I made when I was supposed to be making an 80th birthday card! Actually, it was because I wanted to sell this die and just wanted to use it once before selling it. Now I have my Brother SNC I can cut most things that way although I still love my dies. I liked the finished result.

Craft Class 4 on Stencils

This isn't very representative of what we did but these are the cards I've made up from it. This was our last class before breaking up for the summer. As well as the bought stencils I had, I used my Brother SNC to make a kind of copy of a Clarity stencil with all the squares on. I love the idea of using it with mini stamps as well as stamping over it so did quite a few both before and during the class. Finally got round to making them up into cards - hope you like them.

50th Anniversary for Farming Couple

Once again, I went to Craftsuprint for these two images and used them with a Brother SNC 50 for this card. Not my best work but, once again, had a very specific request.

Fashionista Card

Not sure if this turned out a bit dark but used a My Craft Studio image - from Dressing up Divas - and decoupaged some parts, added glitter.

Brother's Birthday Card

My bro has to have a cat on his card - this one has a few! I used Joanna Sheen's Ivory Cats CD to print off this decoupage and got my Brother SNC to cut it out for me. I thought it would suit him as it wasn't too frilly. I think he liked it - he's a bloke, so it's hard to tell!

Jack Russell Card

I needed to make a Jack Russell card for a girl and got these papers free in Making Cards (I think). They were aimed at men more than women but hope I made it pretty enough!

Wedding Card for Farming Couple

My friend commissioned this card from me for the couple for whom I made the order of service. I was not very inspired but then found this perfect image on Craftsuprint - if every I'm stuck for something specific I always look there as there is such a great range of all sorts on that side and they aren't too expensive. I never got a chance to find out if the person I made it for or the couple liked it but I hope so.

Cuddly Buddly Freebie card

Was looking for desgin teams to join and saw that Cuddly Buddly were looking for some to do with their stamps. I decided not to go for it but downloaded one of their free paper sets and made this. I think these are lovely colours and a lovely design.
