First Easel Card

It is very cold here, thought we had only a small fluttering of snow - Hopefully we will not get too much more snow.

This is my first attempt at an easel card - I used the instructions from SCS. I have made this card for my grandad who was 86 last week.

The image I used was from the Whiff of Joy Summer 2009 Kit. I am ashamed to say that it is the first time I have used him. He is coloured with copics (I see a theme), the flowers are Prima. The paper, ribbon & button are from my stash.

I really enjoyed making this easel card - I will be making more in the future.

Thanks for looking

Another Sugar Nellie

Sorry for the lack of blogging - I don't know where the time goes :).

I am pleased with how this card came out.

The image is a Sugar Nellie available from Funky Kits.
She has been coloured with Copics. I have outlined her with grey which I think makes her stand out more.

I have cut out with my oval Nestabilities and matted on to a piece of embossed card - using my swiss dots folder. I love this paper but seem to have cut off the info. The ribbon and buttons are from my stash.

Thank you for looking

Another Sugar Nellie

Back to work today. Why do holidays seem to go so quickly?
I discovered Sugar Nellie last year and my purse has been a lot lighter ever since :).

I think that this stamp is called poppies. She is coloured with Copics and the red card has been run through the cuttlebug using the swiss dots folder. The flowers are Prima and brads and charms are from stash.

Thanks for looking

Back for the New Year

Sorry I haven't been around for a while. I have been crafting but have run out of time to blog. I am trying to start the new year with more blogging.

The stamp is an Manga girl from Sugar Nellie. I won this stamp from the generous Steph last year. She has been coloured with Copics and mounted on scrap pieces of card. Embellished with brads, buttons, charms and flowers. Have you spotted the mistake - one of the buttons is blue, that is what you get for crafting at night :)

Happy New Year


Sorry for the photo - I have just brought a MacBook and am still learning how to use the programmes.
