Get Well

One of the co-owners of A2Z Scrapbooking, Linda, has been ill lately, having suffered a heart attack last week.  So I've made a card for her to help cheer her up.

I used some new goodies...a Penny Black Stamp and a Darice embossing folder.


I was pleased to see the stamp fitted perfectly within the embossed oval.  I coloured her with a mixture of Copics and Zig markers.   The get well sentiment is from Hero Arts and the rest from Penny Black.  Finished with a few flat sequins. 

Thanks for visiting

Baby Pram card

I'm back from Perth and already missing my little man..... just look at today's photos

Isn't that the cutest ever.

 Squirming around... in his big boy clothes!

Here is the card I made for them. 


I die cut the cute baby pram (Couture Creations) from some blue card and did embossing as well.  I trimmed some darker teal card for the top of the pram.  Added some sentiments I had in my stash. The stars are a die cut as well.  The grass is washi tape.  

I  am now looking forward to spending some time playing with all the goodies I got while over in Perth.  Managed to meet with Kim and go to the Quilt and Craft Fair and had a bit of a spend up. 

Enjoy your week... hope my American friends are enjoying their Memorial Day celebrations.

Girl and Blue Birds

Today is my turn to share my card at Die Cut Divas.  Our sponsor is A Day for Daises and I used this image for my card today.  Our theme this month is inspired by a photo from our very own team member Carol... of buttons




I used Copic markers to colour my image.  I tried the using some pointillism around the image to highlight  the image.  I added a little red button to the back of her dress.  I trimmed the image with a MFT rounded rectangle.  The lacy piece is a die cut from Couture Creations.  It is extremely intricate and did take a few times to get a good cut.  

We would love to have you join us at Die Cut Divas with however the photo inspires you... maybe the buttons, may be the colours... just as long as you let us know what inspired you.

CAS Orchid by Hero Arts

I'm here to share my CAS card over at A2Z Scarpbooking.  Our challenge this month is CAS.   I have used some patterned paper but still think it is CAS enough.


Hello Orchid
I started by stamping the orchid from CL 946 Color Layering Orchid in a Pot.  I used a Spellbinders edge die to cut the white panel and layered it over the PP.  I paired my orchid with a sentiment and a die cut from DC151 Hello Stamp and Die set.  I used some red shiny card to cut the hello.

And today is my daughter's 30th birthday.  I can not believe where the time has gone... and now she's a mother herself.
