Stampin up textured impressions flower garden

One folder three ways

On this card I chalked the image to give a soft look, then added a martha stewart punched border, ribbon and an oval nestabilities with stamped greeting.

For this card I used metalic gold rub on, it's like a paste and gives a totaly different effect, it's teamed with a cheery lynn border die

This card is similar to the first but I coloured the embossing folder with inks first, I was aiming for red but it came out much softer and definitely not red.

All three cards are flying to England tonight to be donated to a friend who does coffee mornings for charity, hope they will sell!

Matching gift envelope from freebie paper

As promised (at last) the matching gift pouch using my free paper. I edged it with a martha stewart swirling lace border punch, added a birthday friend greeting and little brad both from Kaiser. I hope my friend likes the card and present, I have bought a die that fits neatly inside.

Holly card

I love this spellbinders set, I am not sure of the name of it as I cut it at a friends house but it's so pretty, I layered it up to give depth, I used a martha stewart punch for the corners, I think that's called swirling lace. I used pine needles distress inks to give the holly a touch of colour then added the gem stones.

Quilted handbag card

My friend did a class using this quilted paper style and I thought I could give it a try, it didn't turn out too bad but there are a few things I would do differently next time. I couldn't find any papers I liked so this is a patterned wrapping paper, I cut lots of squares out using my nestabilities small squares then stuck them on to paper and stitched them down using a zig zag stitch, I then cut the shape of the bag and stitched that on to a piece of card and added all the embelishments.

Kaiser Christmas decorations

I made these christmas decorations instead of cards for the special people in my life. I used four kaiser wooden coasters and joined them together with ribbons, covered them in pretty papers and used a nestabilities label set to add frames and the letters NOEL which were cut from boys will be boys die set.
On the reverse of each coaster there is a little rub on kaiser verse and I left one free to write a message. I added flowers from my stash and gem stones.
The boxes were made to match and decoated with a spellbinders fancy tags set.
I will post the other pictures tomorrow.

Flower card using my free paper

I used the paper I created to make this card, I used silver thread to stitch around the hexagons, then I layered a spellbinders die on top (can't remember the set it was from as I borrowed it!) followed by a nestie circle which was stamped in black with a kaiser friend stamp then I added a kaiser brad to the centre. I have made a little gift pouch to match will photograph that tomorrow.

Freebie digital paper

Isn't this paper fab, I made it using some gorgeous papers created by Summer Driggs which you can find here.  She has given me permission to share it with you. The template I used was from here. These are both very talented ladies. Ok I am all inspired now, should be making christmas cards but off to play some more!

Time for tea

Oh my I am truely in love with this die, it's the Cheery Lynn English tea party DL101. I have inked the edges with worn lipstick distress ink, the images are free digital stamps but I can't remember where I got them, if you recognise them please let me know so I can give credit for them. I have coloured the images with copics and added diamond dust glitter and gem stones.

Golden Wedding

For this card I used the gorgeous Marianne embossing and cutting folder DS0908, I cut it in pearl card and mounted it on gold mirri card, added a piece of ribbon, the die cuts are spellbinders nestabilities scaloped hearts and a ribbon tag. I think this folder will be getting a lot of use.
