It's freebie Friday!
If you go to the download page on my main site you will find this weeks freebie, this week I have put some stacks and some inverted tunnel stacks on for you, Enjoy!
Today's cards, here are 3 cards which are a variation on a theme. All the cards are side opening A5 landscape cards, they have been made by using 2 sheets of A5 card. The front piece has been creased and then stuck onto the rear piece to enable it to open. I have then embossed 2 borders on core card which has been sanded. The main image in the middle is also embossed and sanded, all of the folders used on all 3 cards are Cuttlebug embossing folders. This is an easy way of making a side opening landscape card without using larger card.
Have a good weekend, Tina x

Good evening Bloggers, I hope you have had a better week than me? I haven't been very well this week and haven't really wanted to do anything much. Tuesday was my worst day when I could quite easily have stayed in bed, anyway onwards and upwards!
My card for today starts with a background using distress inks matted onto brown card, the die cuts are a Spellbinder D-lite, which I cut 3 times and stuck onto the front of the card, overlapping slightly. The stamp is a Clarity one, which finishes the card nicely.

I hope you like it!
I have put a new freebie on the main site today, it is a collection of art nouveau icons with matching backing papers. Please be patient as there are 7 pages of high quality images and so it might take a little while to download, Please click the link for the free download page on the main site. All for now, Tina x

Good evening bloggers, I hope you have had a good weekend?
As usual mine has been a busy one, craft club all day Saturday and out all day today before coming home and cooking a lovely roast lamb dinner.
The weather here lately has been very hit and miss, here is a picture of my two cats, Smokey and Shadow soaking up the tiniest bit of sun on the carpet, typical cats!

Today's card has been made with my latest die (I can see it is going to be a favourite!), it is a Spellbinder card creator die called 'enchanted labels 28', it fits on a 5x7 card. You get the two dies as shown in the picture and then a small oblong one ideal for a sentiment.

All for now, Tina x

Good evening Bloggers!
I must apologise for my lack of posts lately, I must have had a virus on my PC and it has taken me a while to wipe it and sort it out again.
Well, I have spent the day playing with my new toy, my melting pot. I bought some silicone putty at the weekend and I have been playing at making some moulds, here are some of my embellishments I made today.

I also dipped some silk flowers in clear embossing powder and it gives them a glass effect which I really like.

That's all for today, Tina x

Hello bloggers!
I hope you have all had a lovely bank holiday weekend, we had lovely weather here in Lincoln, which really makes a change on a bank holiday!
I am doing a shutter card demo on Thursday at club and this is the card they will be making, or a variation of. The stamps are from the latest creative stamping magazine, which is really good value for money at £5.99 for the magazine and a full A4 set of stamps.
