Latest projects

Good evening everyone, I hope you have all had a nice weekend?
I had a card from each of my children today but that was as far as the Mothers Day thing went!
I have been busy today making cards with a couple of the new dies I recently bought.

This first one is the Tattered Lace oriental panda die, which is so lovely you don't need to do much with it for a great card.

This next one is a white on white card, which can be really effective. I have used a new Marianne die for the shaped top, Petras mirror for the main shape and then various Marianne dies for all the other embellishments. Some handmade flowers to finish it off.

I hope you like them!
All for now, Tina x

Freebie Friday-Easter digistamps

Good evening bloggers,
It is turning out to be a lovely evening, the rain has dried up and the sun is trying to make an appearance before it goes down. It is supposed to be a lovely weekend, so enjoy it while it lasts!
Happy Mothers day for Sunday to all those mums out there. Also my thoughts are with those who no longer have their mums with them. Just remember to appreciate them while you do.
The Freebie today is a set of Easter digistamps.
As always you will find the stamps on the Free download page of my main site. If you are a regular visitor you will notice I have had a bit of a shuffle and put the tutorials on a separate page as it was getting a bit full.
Due to such a busy week, I haven't been making much this week, I am at club tomorrow, so I will upload my projects over the weekend.
All for now, Tina x

Freebie Friday-Card tutorial

Good evening everyone, I hope you are all well?
I am posting the freebie early this week as I am going to the craft show at the NEC tomorrow and I will be late home and probably very tired, its hard work spending money!!! Maybe I'll see you there?

The pictures below are the card I have made a tutorial for which as usual can be downloaded from my main site under the free tutorial section.



The card itself is very simple, it is more the decorating that takes the time!

Here are some other cards I have made this week:

This card was made using the Marianne Anja corner die on all 4 corners of a square piece of card, matted onto a coloured card. The topper is a little notelet I have had for ages, stamped with a Clarity message and a bow to finish it off.

This card was made by measuring 10cm from each side of an embossed A4 card and drawing a pencil line. The semi circle die is from Heartfelt creations and was cut on the line each side. I then scored the card, top and bottom of the die cut area. I used a Martha Stewart punch and punched 2 flower borders which I glued on the front panel of the card. The little flowers on the semi circles come in the same die set, I then used Cosmic shimmer glue in the centres of all the flowers on the card. The topper is a Spellbinder die and so is the main flower in the centre. 

For this card, I stamped Little Claires beach hut and coloured with pro markers. I die cut it using an Xcut ornate frame die and mounted it onto a square card which has been embossed with an Embossalicious frame folder and inked over.

Thats all for now, Tina x

Freebie Friday

Good evening Bloggers,
I cant believe its Friday again! 
I have had a busy week with club meetings yesterday and another one tomorrow!
Here are the cards I made yesterday:
This Bookatrix card was made at club yesterday afternoon, it has been a long time since I made a Bookatrix card!
These stepper cards were made last night at another club.

Freebie Friday
This weeks freebie has been made with the onset of Spring in mind, there are two sheets, one pyramage sheet of two daffodil pictures and the other one is faux pyramage which gives all the effect without the cutting!
As usual you can find the freebie on my main site.
Have a good weekend, all for now, Tina x

Freebie Friday-Cute mice stamps part 3

Good evening everyone, I hope you are looking forward to a lovely weekend?
I have had a busy week as always, I've been playing at some new projects for a change.
I've had this chest of drawers in my craft room for ages and I was fed up with them being so boring, so I decided to jazz them up a bit.



I made a picture frame card for the first time this week as well.

Now to the freebie, to conclude the collection, you can download the final part of the cute mice stamps on the main site.
All for now, Tina x
