Olympic Torch

Hi everyone,

No card today, busy making teachers pressies for my kids to take to school.  Just wanted to show you this...

Had a visit at the school where I work from one of the Olympic torch bearers who ran in Leeds. He spent the morning with us and the kids got to have their photo taken with it, and this is me, holding the Olympic Torch (it was quite exciting!)  A good day!

Bye for now

Less is More 75 - Colour

Hi everyone and Good Afternoon

Hope the sun is still shining wherever you are.

Well I haven't managed to get a Less Is More card made for a few weeks, and I have missed it.  So I've tried my hardest to get one done for this week which is a colour theme and Chrissie and Mandi want us to use Gold.  I do like gold but don't use it very often.

However I saw this idea in Pinterest Here and just had to have a go at making a smaller version. Their pictures are amazing and look very time consuming.  When I saw it it was one of those "why didn't I think of that" moments...

It's basically different sizes of hearts cut out, folded and stuck down on one side (a bit fiddly, but I'm pleased with it).  I used Gold pearl paper and the sentiment is from Uniko Studio Fontiments stamp set that I've stamped and embossed in gold (not very clear).

Hope you like it.

Alfie and Pretty Little Prints

Hi Everyone

Hope you have had a good day now the sun is eventually shining!

Just wanted to show you a card I've made for my God-daughter Stephanie who will be one tomorrow.

It features Alfie Bear from Craftwork Cards, along with papers and Candi from their Pretty Little Prints range, there is also an embossed butterfly card background but unfortunately it hasn't shown up very well ...

I stamped and coloured Alfie with my Copics and added Glossy Accents to the flower...

Close up of Alfie (he's so cute)!

I decided to give Stephanie money for her birthday so inside I made a little pocket with the same embossed butterfly card and put some Frosted Lace Stickles glitter glue on the larger ones..

Hope you like it, I'm quite please with how it's turned out, especially as my mojo has been MIA for a week or so now.

I'm also entering this card into a couple of challenges:-

Oldie but a Goodie - Flower Power
Bizzy Becs - Flower Power

Bye for Now

Pretty Little Prints

Hi everyone,

Hope you are all ok, sorry for the lack of posts recently, time just seems to be flying by.

Over on the Craftwork Cards website they've got some fab new products, papers and Candi called Pretty Little Prints, also some brilliant new embossed cards and nestie frames, they are genius, you can do so much with them.

As I'm now a very proud member of the Design Team I was sent these lovely products to play with.  I've come up with three cards for now, but there are a few more in the pipeline so watch this space...

For this card I cut an aperture into a card blank and added the frame over the top with foam pads.  I then stamped, coloured and cut out Warren (I love that bunny!) and stuck him down by his tiny little feet.

For this one I used the largest frame.  I stuck a plain piece of card to the back to make a complete card and then added flowers from the Flower Fusion range.

Finally for this card I took a piece of the embossed card and on my computer I made a text box which I filled with colour and then ran the piece through my printer (as they call come white).  It prints onto really well.  I then used one of CC's templates for the diamond shaped petals which are from the new Pretty Little Prints range and added the sentiment, the Candi is also a new one.

I hope you like them.  Please go and pop over to the Craftwork Cards blog and see what the other DT members have been up to, they really are a very clever bunch!

See you soon.

Jo xx
