Great Britain

I've wanted to make a Pop Up Box card for ages so when I noticed that Debbie had a Pop Up Box Mega Bundle over at Paper Creator I decided to have a go.

The bundle contains 10 different pop up boxes covering various themes and each kit includes a Pop Up Box,  Pop Up Box Layers,  Backing Paper, Envelope Front and Envelope Back.

I used the Great Britain kit, it's really simple to make and full instructions are included.  I also made the matching envelope - I apologise for the awful photograph.

Fun in the Waves

I have seen a few cards around with these fabulous Children at the Seaside images from Nicecrane Designs and decided to pop over and buy myself some.  Soon after I purchased my images I received an email from Ignacio at Nicecrane Designs offering me two free sets of images, well how could I refuse - you will see some of these at a later date.


A lot of the cards I have seen using these images have been distressed but I decided to stick with my clean and layered look. The papers are a combination of Nitwits and Bearly Mine Designs and I have used Kraft card stock.


The border is my favourite Fiskars edge punch and I have added some ribbon, twine, pearls and a button from my stash.

Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenge 70 - Polka Dots
Sister Act Card Challenge 67 - Anything Goes

I have coloured her with ProMarkers and created the cloudy sky with distress inks.  My papers are from the Papermania Eau de Nil collection and I used a Spellbinders die to cut out my image and the little shell embellishments.  The border is a Fiskars edge punch and the lace is from my stash.

On the Move

It's time for a new challenge at Winter Wonderland and our theme for this week is On the Move - your image can show movement e.g. sledging or create something with a moving part e.g. a slider card.

I have used a gorgeous image from Kenny K who is our sponsor this week and made a twister card. I've never made one of these before, making the card was no problem - taking a decent photograph was impossible!


I coloured my image with ProMarkers and added glitter to her hat and the snow.  The papers are from the Dovecraft Back to Basics Vintage Christmas collection and I used a Marianne Designs stamp for my sentiment.


The snowflake is a Simon Says Stamp die cut coated with glitter and the Aurora Sparklers are from my stash - I think they may have come from the Hobby House originally.

This week we are sponsored by Kenny K


who are offering one lucky winner 3 digis of their choice

Singing in the Rain

I made this card to enter into this weeks Less is More challenge, however, when it was finished I decided that it really wasn't very Less is More so I made another one for the challenge using the same image but much more simple.


I have used an adorable image from Joanna Sheen's Little Suzy's Zoo Singing in the Rain stamp set and a snippet of Pink Petticoat gingham paper.


I coloured my image with ProMarkers and used distress inks to create the cloudy sky.  I cut my image out with a Spellbinders circle die, I then layered it onto a scalloped circle die cut from some co-ordinating yellow card stock.  The gems have been coloured to match and the ribbon is from my stash.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

RRR Challenge 99 - Things with Wings and Ribbon
