This is a card I made for my friends little boy who loves the army. I asked her for a photo of him in his army outfit that I printed it out and mounted on Gold mirri card. I had some orange card card so I got some inks , Ivy/coffee bean and rust, I stamp them on the card to get the effect I wanted, I matt and layered them up along with some Spider web that I inked with the Ivy ink.
Photo mounted and some gold glitter to frame it
Kanban card stock and Spider web
Great tiles from Hunkydory that I mounted on green and gold card stock and added some glitter
Sentiment from Kanban Macho collection, inked it and added glitter
Made my own Number tag
I hope you liked it. I had fun making the backing card and It was great to make a male card, Thank you for popping over and please feel free to leave a comment as I love to read them.

FABULOUS NEW DIES FROM CRAFTERS COMPANION
WOW WOW WOW LOVE THESE DIES
Once again I got some fabulous Die'sire Dies to play with from the amazing Crafters Companion. There are 5 in total that I got, LEAF SWIRLS, TAGS 1, LACE BORDER 8, LACE BORDER 9 AND ROMANIC SONG FRAME.
They are high quality dies and have the little holes to help you release them, They have great details in the Dies, The ROMANTIC SONG FRAME die is two dies but you get three designs from it, The fancy frame has lovely detail and design on it, The middle part cuts out so you can stamp or print a image on it and then you have a fancy frame that you can use for sentiments.
The TAGS 1 has 6 dies in the packet, 3 oval and 3 rectangles, they can be stack on one another and are great sizes.
The LEAF SWIRLS are stunning and you get two in the packet which is lovely as you can use both designs at once.
The LACE BORDERS 8&9 are fantastic and full of detail, brilliant for making borders and I love all the amazing designs you can make with them.
They are at a amazing price and you can get them from www.crafterscompanion.com.uk or at Create and Craft channel 36 on freeview or pop over to the web site,
The images are all from the fabulous Mulberry Woods CD from Crafters Companion
This first card I used the LACE BORDER 9 and the LEAF SWIRL die
I cut the SWIRL in half to make a different shape
This is the fabulous ROMANTIC SONG FRAME dies, I printed a image from Mulberry Wood. CD used the die to cut it out along with Centura pearl card stock for the frame, It cut throught both in one cut
This is a 8in x 8in I emboss some Mirri card with my Floral Frenzy Embossalicous folder. The image is from Mulberry Woods CD and I mounted it on mirri board, I cut two LACE BORDER 8 in two pieces, I placed ribbon across the centre of the card and then placed the borders on either side of the ribbon to make a large border. I added some glitter and dark red ribbon. It reminds me of chocolates but I don't know why, lol.
This is the TAGS 1 and, this is the middle size die. The flower is made from the Mulberry Wood CD , I just shaped it and added spray and shine
This is the LEAF SWIRL DIE , its a great size and you can cut it if you wish to. The flower is made in the same way as above.
This is the inside of the card. Its a side stepper card
I hope you enjoyed your visit and I hope you like the new Die'sire Dies, Thank you so much for popping over

VINTAGE BINGO CARD
DO YOU LIKE BINGO?
I was asked to make a bingo card for a friends mum, well I don't really know her mum so I decided to make two cards, One vintage and the other was a bit of fun, I showed my friend both cards and she said that her Mum would love the humour one.
I decided to show you both as my vintage one is a bit different but I hope you like it.
I drew a bingo page myself, I aged the paper with distress inks. I used glitter glue for the Bingo sign and Gold Candi (from Craftwork Cards) to put on the numbers, (You can tell I don't play Bingo as I don't know the correct terms for it lol) I used card stock from Kanban Crafts and aged it. I added flexi peel offs from Pinflair Crafts around the edge of the card.
The tag I used from Craftwork cards, I aged it and mounted it on mirri card, I wrote Mum in glitter and added some pearls and some ribbon, I added glitter to the hat pins. And made a bow.
The bingo I glittered as I wanted it to stand out on the card
This is the other card that my friend wanted. I do love these images, It is from a collection called "Golden Oldies" from Hunkydory.
So easy to make and I love making Decoupage cards
Added a sentiment and added pearl liquid to it
I do hope you enjoyed your visit today, Please feel free to leave a comment, as I love to read them,

NEW HOME CARD (BIRDHOUSE)
CRAFTWORK CARDS AMAZING SHAPE CARDS
NEW HOME/BIRD HOUSE
I saw these shape cards from the amazing Craftwork cards and I fell in love with them. They are such fun to work with and I love that you can use them for so many different occassions.
I used the Bohemian papers (birdcage) Candi and mini flowers also from Craftwork cards. They are such soft gorgeous colours and I love the chic look you get from them.
I drew around the shape of the card onto the paper and drew the circle and i cut it out very carefully as I wanted to use it for the inside of the card.
I stuck the paper to the front and then
I inked the edges of the card with lavender ink just to soften the edges, I added some glitter to the flowers and the bottom of the card, just to make them stand out. The leaves are hat pins and I added some lace that I inked with the lavender and some beautiful bold pink ribbon that I folded and glued to make the roof
For the inside of the card I inked around the edges to soften it and match it in with the outside, I used the Bohemian paper to make the sentiment and used the Candi to frame it
You can find the products at www.craftworkcards.co.uk.

How lucky am I?
I was one of the lucky ones to get to use the new Epiphany tool Pennant from the fabulous Crafters Companion.
I have never used one before but WOW it was so easy and so much fun!!!!
Here are the sample cards I made using the Epiphany Pennantn Tool, I hope you like them.
This is Peter Rabbit Decoupage card I made. He is so cute, This is a A5 Centura Pearl card, I mounted the image on some Mirri card, Used my spellbinder dies for the corners, added some pearls and a bow
I had some papers with Beatrix Potter images on so I pop them in the Epiphany machine and line up the picture I wanted to use, Put my dome stick in the tool and punch out my little Pennants, So easy to use,
Here's a close up of the Epiphany pennant
This card is made from the fab snowman and Santa papers, I had a few of the same sheets so I cut out the santas to make my pennants with, Something different.
This is from the Snowman collection, The Rocker card, I added some glitter
Used the Epiphany Tool to make Pennants to add a finish to the sentiment
And I also used them to make the circle sentiments a little bit more fun
The gorgeous Humprey decoupage card, Had lots of fun making this card
I used the Epiphany to make a banner down the side of the card, Makes such a different to your cards
Thank you so much for popping over and I hope you liked my cards. Please feel free to leave comment as I love to read them.
