Stampin up christmas cards

A couple of quick cards I made with the stampin up bauble set, I stamped them in black then coloured them and added gold metalic rub on paste, the papers are old scraps I was using up and the die hanger is a marianne one

At last an update

Sorry it's been so long but my laptop had a broken disc drawer so I could not load anything on it including my photo editing package, I have finally got round to getting it sorted so off we go again.
This card uses I think pink petticoat backing paper, the border is a borderabilities from wizard cut with glitter paper and I can't remember where I got the flower from but it's a digital one.

Learning to chain

I am making more jewellery than cards at the moment need to get cracking

Lime and bronze

Another jewellery set I have made, its just simple threading with crackle glass beads and square beads with bronze sead beads in between. I just love the colour of the beads and the shapes but now need to buy some new clothes to match them!

some thank you cards

Some cards I made with limited supplies. See D stamps and nestabilities, as I did not have any coloured card and my printer was damaged in transit I have used my ink pad to colour it.
For this card I have used the same stamps and nestabilities but added some flowers I have made with an EZ Cut die which cuts the paper into strips with a fringe, the leaves are from a die from Little Claire I think.

I have been very busy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Since my last post I have emigrated to Australia, it was all very fast and I did not have time to blog but I am now up and running again but still waiting for my craft goodies to arrive. In the mean time I have joined a jewellery making class, as if I needed another hobby! So my cards will be limited and there will be some jewellery items instead.

I made this set today, its my first ever make so it's very simple but the glass beads are just gorgeous, I love it so much I am going to make another for my best friend at home who I am missing so much.

Birthday greetings at last!

I think I started making this card two years ago and I have finaly finished it, not that it was difficult, it just got buried under a pile of unfinished items. The images are Morehead and I have used lace from my scrap box, peeloffs and tiny flowers.

Dads Birthday

Made for my dear dads birthday next week, I love making easel cards now they have taken over from the step cards, the ship is decoupaged and I have added the knotted string for a 3D effect. The letters are cut with my new sizzix alphabet set. I am finding it easier now to make cards again now that my arm is on the mend.

My first everything

My first card of the year, my first easel card and my first card made with one arm! LOL

I have cut the back panel with my craft robo, it was a free design from uk scrappers, I added extra butterflies that I ran through the swiss dots folder, there are little pearls but they do not show up too well. I have used lots of nesties too, a labels set with the verse "Don't think of it as getting older, you're just in full bloom" and and oval set to mount the 70 on and my favorite borderabilities.

New Year

Well I have started my new year in plaster, on new years eve I managed to break my wrist in two places and not even a drop of alcohol had past my lips. Serves me right for straying out my comfort zone, well thats the end of my dancing on ice career!!!!!!!! At the moment I am in agony and won't be posted any cards for a while but hope to learn to craft with one hand very soon as I have a seventieth birthday card to make for 26th.

xrays are not mine, just for a laugh
