Are you keeping¬†warm !!! More snow has been forecast for here in the Midlands, let’s hope they’re wrong.

Anyway here’s an easel card I ‘ve made using the large A4 dies.

The image is by Kanban, ideal for teenage boys, I think. I’ve used a Stampin¬†Up patterned Paper and cut the words and numbers out using my cricut¬† machine and Gypsy.

I really like this shaped card will definitely be doing more of these.

Are you ready for Christmas yet? I’m not, but getting there bit by bit, like most of us at this time of year I need more hours in a day.

Hi Everyone.

I’ve been playing with my new A4 die cutting machine, one of the goodies I got at the NEC in November.

I have cut the base card out using a large¬†scalloped circle¬†set of nesties. I’ve also cut the mat from patterned paper and the scalloped border with the same set of nesties. Angel Tilda has been cut out using the regular circle dies.


Card Recipe

  • Angel Tilda available at Stampeezee
  • Coloured with promarkers.
  • SU designer snowflake paper.
  • Extra large scalloped circle dies, regular circle dies.
  • Martha Stewart snowflake punches.
  • Cuttlebug embossing folder, snowflakes.
  • Personal Impressions circle sentiments.
  • Stickles, glitter dots and glass bead from the stash.

Here’s a closer look¬†at Tilda, sooooooo angelic..

Hopefully the glitter shows up a little better.

I’d also like to enter this into the Just Magnolia challenge, which is ” anything goes” with the added option of sparkle. I hope it’s sparkly enough, the piccie¬†doesn’t do it justice (always have trouble taking pictures to show off the sparkle) and also Cute Card Thursday where the challenge is ” The Blues”

Thanks for stopping by
