Christmas Cards 2017 (so far)

The grey, white and red cards are from a scrapbook collection thst loaned itself well to card making. I think I have another  40+  that I haven’t photographed. The second set is cream bases, SU Cherry Cobbler cardstock, and This is Christmas DSP. All the dies are unbranded. I used L’Amore Palette ink.  Sentiments are from My Favorite Things and Quietfire Designs.

Thanks for looking!


Baby Cards 

Some baby cards I’ve made recently. I used a Stampin Up  label punch and stamp set, all the other dies are unbranded. I used some LawnFawn, and unknown stamps for the sentiments.

Milestone cards

These are some milestone cards I was asked to make. The first card, the dragonfly with butterflies and flowers, is mostly Stampin Up. The dragonfly, flowers, sentiment and background  paper are all SU. I used 110 pound cream cardstock for the base, and the finished card is 5.5 inches square.

The second card is a 60th anniversary card,  done in ruby red and white ( for rubies and diamonds).  The oal is a Gina Maries die, the couple kissing and 60 are unbranded dies, the letters for years is Hero Arts, and Celebrate is by Suzanne Cannon for Elizabeth Craft Designs. My friend loves blind and shiny stuff, so I used diamond glitter paper, white foam roses, wink of Stella pens.

Feminine Cards

These are the FEMININE cards I’ve done this month.. Again, some might look familiar. The dark background with flowers on it is from a One Sheet Wonder, and I’ve used it to make lots of Thanks, Thinking of you and a birthday card.

I made sympathy and birthday cards from those unused note cards (see last post), I simply used some matching cardstock to the colour, and some SU punches to make the flowers, and added some embellishments to the flower centres.

The 3-D butterflies were added to a couple of extra note cards for birthday cards.

The bicycle cards are done using some Penny Black 6×6 paper, the SU modern label punch (retired), and what I call the Banggood bicycle.. why banggood? that’s the online shop I got it from. 🙂  I just added a gem for the centre of the wheels, and used white gel pen for the flower centres.

Thanks for looking, have a great day 🙂

Masculine Cards


Well, I’ve been on a bit of roll making cards.  These are all the masculine cards I’ve done in March so far, minus a few that went into the 120 card order for this month. I did two SU “Text” One Sheet Wonders for masculine cards, one in old jalopies (Tim Holtz), and the other in SU Traveler and The Open Sea (retired).  These cards are simply black and very vanilla. The old automobiles, I cut and rounded the corners on the image and mat, the world map, steamer and train were all done with stitched die cuts (you can’t really see the detail in the photos). Some cards may be familiar, as I had posted some in other groupings before.

The black and white with a splash of colour cards were originally note card sets  Ihad made some years ago now.. A lot of them never sold, so I took them, dressed them up, and added a sentiment. The flourish is Quietfire Designs, the leaves are SU, the umbrella man is Tim Holtz, and the wooden hand thingy is a wooden embellishment that came in a set. I think it’s Recollections.


Thanks for having a look! 🙂
