Dragonfly square accordion card...

This is my second post today, I'm loving how Elizabeth craft design peel off stickers make my cards quick and easy to complete. I just adding a little colour to the body using my letraset promarkers and added stickles glitter glue to the wings and hey presto one beautiful dragonfly.

The mini dragonflies are from a Sizzix stamp and die set and although it's hard to see in the photo I used two different colour inks to create it.

Gorjuss accordion oval card...

Hello everyone, how's the weather where you are? It's still decidedly cold here and wooly hats are a must in the mornings as well as a fashion accessory. Speaking of accessories I love this gorjuss little foxes stamp set with her wonderful wooly hat.

I hope you like the little girl and foxes it's taken me a while but I think I'm beginning to get the hang of how to use my letraset promarkers to blend and shade the colours.

Cute peel off sticker robin card...

There are only 308 sleeps to Christmas so I thought I'd join a few Christmas challenge blogs. This card is made using Karen Burniston's Katie die and I am going to enter it into the merry Monday Christmas challenge which stipulated I need to put holly somewhere on the card. I used a tiny holly stamp I got as a freebie from a magazine last Christmas, and added teeny tiny red pearls as holly berries.

The peel off sticker is an Elizabeth craft design bird that I coloured using brown promarkers and red embossing powder. The merry Christmas is also an Elizabeth craft design die.

Binary be mine valentines card...

Happy belated valentines day everyone:). Here is a valentines day card I started ( but never finished) for my hubby.
I used Karen Burniston's new heart dies from Elizabeth crafts designs for this card. I had also cut out the inside of the card using Karens lots of pops die with the intention of adding a computer and more binary words inside but time got away from me and I didn't finish it.
The other ladies on Karen Burniston's design team have more great cards to have a look at, you can find them on Karens Facebook page or by clicking on the links down the left hand side of this page

Karen Burniston oval pivot spring is in the air card...

Snowdrop are a sure sign that spring is in its way to me. My family and my daughters BFF family went to Anglesey Abbeys snowdrop festival this weekend, which is well worth a visit. We ate cake and took lots of photography of snowdrops.

This inspired me to use an Elizabeth craft design flower peel off sticker and my letraset promarkers to recreate a snowdrop card.
I love Karen Burniston's new pivot dies from Elizabeth craft design. I think it's great how quickly and easily you can assemble a card, this one took me about 10 minutes from start to finish.

I struggle with which colours to put together so I've recently bought a colour coach from stampin up.
I'm going to enter this card into the spring challenge from cutting and stampin.

Hi all, I made this card for my aunt who turns 70 soon. She has a love of canal boat painting and know she will love this card. I used Karens lots of pops die for this card and some lovely washi tape from the works for the bunting.

I used an Elizabeth craft design dragonfly peel off sticker on some bleed proof paper and coloured the body using my letraset promarks. For the wings a used stickles stardust glitter glue.

I am going to enter this card into a washi tape challenge over at ribbon carousel.

CAS Butterfly pivot card...

This card was inspired by a fellow Karen Burniston's design team member. Caz over at her crafty palace has been making some lovely clean and simple cards using just stamps and plain paper.

Stamping the foxglove on the inside of the card was a little trickier as I had to line up the stamp exactly. I cut a butterfly out of a piece of acetate and used it to mask the pre stamped butterfly.

I just entered this card into this cards4guyz blog challenge..
Wish me luck:)
