Hi everyone

Here’s a wedding card today. I’ve used a stencil by sweet poppy designs and white paste to create the cake and then sprinkled iridescent glitter over it. This is the first time I’ve done this.


This card is 8″x8″ in size. The background has been embossed with an A4 embossing folder. I’ve mounted the cake onto a matt cut with a spellbinders 5×7 die called detailed scallops. ” On your Wedding Day was cut with my britannia dies. The names and date were computer generated, then matted and layered. I’ve added a big bow to the corner, with a jelly tot diamante in the centre.


Here’s a closer look at that wedding cake, hopefully you can see the glitter a little better in this piccie.

Hugs for now be back soon with some workshops.

Hi Everyone.

I’ve got an easel card today.


I made an easel card using one of my xxl dies. The shoe, patterned paper and flower embellishment came from a cd that was bought at the NEC called Fabulous shoes. I added a sentiment, some  ribbon and stickles to glitter it up.


I love these shoes !!!

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi bloggers.

Here’s a birthday card I made for a friend, it’s a cascading card.


I’ve made a straight-edged one of these before but I saw a template with a lattice die at one of the shows and liked the end results. So I used this template and die cut it. I’ve added some patterned paper and die cut some butterflies from parchment paper. The Happy Birthday was die cut from a die set from britannia dies.

Good morning!!

I needed a quick and easy card for a friend to give to her Granddaughter and this only takes about 20 minuets, if that.


I’ve folded an A4 piece of dotty card in half lengthways. The letters and numbers were cut out with a quik cutz alphabet called Abigail. I’ve then cut some circles using my nesties and computer generated the sentiment. Added a bow, some tiny punched flowers and a few gems to finish it off.

Short and sweet from me today. Have a lovely day, whatever you’re doing.

Morning Everyone.

I’ve used another 8×8 die cut card from cupcake crafting today. I will definitely getting some more of these when I go to the NEC this month.


I’ve distress the whole card with ink and added some polka dot card from Anna-marie designs, this card is really good quality. The shoes have been stamped and then cut out. I’ve punched out a circle and put a “40” peel off in the corner and then added some paper roses, leaves, a sentiment, ribbon and bow and some gold bling.


Thanks for stopping by.

The spellbinders I’ve used for this 8×8 card are as follows Decorative blossom corner, Venetian Accents, Stately Circles, Scalloped Circles and Frames One from the D-lites range. The sentiment was done on the computer and I’ve added a bow, a feather, some bling and an “18” peel off. The spellbinders have done all the work on this one.

Hi Bloggers.

Just a quickie today. Here’s the card I made for my sister in law’s birthday.

I’ve added a lacy embossed edge at the bottom of the card this is done with an embossing folder from Stampin Up. The words have been die cut with Britannia die sets. I’ve also added some crystal centres to the daisies, little bows and some organza ribbon roses.

It’s an 8×8 die cut card base from cupcake crafting, Love these cards. The football, boots, and border, along the bottom, have been stenciled with a mask from Glitz Craft and then cut out.



The rosette has been stamped with a set by Little Claire’s called Georgina’s Rosettes and I’ve added a football pin to the centre, this flashes when turned on.


The word SON has been stamped with a set by Stampin Up called letter it . I’ve then cut the letters out and mounted them on the card with sticky fixers.
