Snowman Card!

I started making my Christmas cards a few weeks ago, so I thought I had better start showing you them before I forget about them.

I have a lovely cd which I purchased off ebay, so I can create the lovely pyramid decoupage cards which I love making!

Thanks for looking!

Rose Card For 40th Birthday

Good evening everyone!

Well today's card is a decoupage rose for a 40th birthday.
I must say that these cards have been very popular with people. I normally never make the same card more than once so everytime I make this card I try to make each one a little different.

This week I am doing a Family Learning course with Jake at his new school. The aim is to get them to make some new friends before they start school in September. I think Jake is quite looking forward to going to a new school. Anyway to get back to the course, we are making robots and I must say it is fun!
I am just colouring some tin foil with some alcohol inks to cover part of the robot with. I will try and get some photos and put them on here Friday evening.
Bye for now Julie.

*Magnolia Challenge 32* Cold as ice...

This weeks challenge over on the Magnolia blog
is Cold as ice..... and here is my take on the challenge!

Main card is blue pearlescent.
Let it snow background paper from Paper mania.
White cs has been embossed with the snow flake die. Then edged with a blue chalk ink pad and glitter glue added to the raised bits.
I did a bit of masking to get the two images together.
Glittered the tree stump.
Coloured in front of the tree stump with blue chalk ink pads to create a water effect.
I then covered this with Diamond glaze to create an icy look!
Added some button snowflakes, Prima flowers with zooms for the centres and some ribbon.

Hope you enjoy looking at the card.

Black & White Wedding Card

Today's card is a commissioned black & white wedding card.
I have never made a black & white wedding card before, so this was a bit of a challenge for me.

At first I was not sure if I liked it but it has grown on me.

The background paper has been printed from a wedding CD.
The stamped images have been embossed.
I have used black & white organza ribbon together.
Added some black glitter to the cake.
Used my black glaze pen on the hearts & ribbon.
Coloured peel off dots black with peel off pens.
Coloured corner brads black with peel off pens.

Now I have to design another black & white card for the parents of the bride.

Hope you enjoy looking at the card!
See you tomorrow!

I am back!

Goodness me, it feels sooo long since I blogged!
It has really been hectic around here, what with the summer fair at school,
our Anniversary and holiday and then our family holiday!
But now I am back and I can get some crafting done.
I have really missed spending time in my carftroom and also keeping my blog up to date.

Tonight the card I am going to show you is one I made for Kevin for our Anniversary.

As Kevin likes steam trains, I decided to make a photo card using one of my photos from our holiday at Wells-next-the-sea.
This is the steam train we went on from Holt to Sherringham.
I have to say he was delighted with the card!

Happy crafting Julie!
