Bless You.....

I'm afraid to say that this card is a shameless CASE of a beautiful card from Creative Journey (sorry I can't remember the author's name!)

The card consists of an acetate circle decorated with gems and prima flowers .This is then mounted onto a base card decorated with more Summer Driggs paper. A strip of Paisley print paper has been mounted onto a strip of white card who's edge has been punched using a Fiskars border punch.This has then been adhered to a piece of paper which has been stuck to the front of a white tentfold card. Ribbon has been wrapped around the paisley strip. A cricut generated sentiment and gemstones completes the picture.The flowers and sentiments have been glittered with Stickles glitter glue (how unusual for me! NOT!!!) Very simple but stunning.

Another Summer Driggs.....

This is another card made with Summer Driggs design papers.

I used two different designs to cover the front of a tentfold card. I then downloaded a picture of a '20's' lady from the internet framed it with a Cricut frame and decorated the whole thing with flowers,ribbon brads and my obligatory glitter!!!

Very simple but very pretty!

Love is a vine......

Browsing through the many blogs available to see on the internet I came accross Summertime Designs by Summer Driggs. She has wonderful papers to download for FREE!!!!!!.So I downloaded almost everyone of her collections.They are lovely and include papers,some page ploppers(!!!!) and embellishments.They are,of course digital,but can easily be used by cardmakers.Have a look and see what you think!

This card was made with two of her design paper,cut into 6 by 12cms panels and adhered to a matted and layered white panel. Ribbon was wrapped around the two panels and the whole thing adhered with dimensionals onto the white panel. A cricut generated frame hold the sentiment 'Love is a vine that grows in out hearts' This was computer generated onto Safmat.

Paper flowers, and gems complete the picure! The card looks much better in real life than it does in this photo!

I love this card- I hope you like it too!

Fab Funky Hand!!!

Happy Saturday everyone!! I recently discovered the wonderful Anice and Funky Hand. I purchased her Christmas downladables and also her Shabby Saturday download and these cards are made using the Shabby Saturday papers. I have used two to three contrasting papers for each card.A plain white piece of textured cardstock has been matted into coloured cardstock and adhered to a base white tentfold card. Then panels of paper have been adhered onto the white panel-some flat and some with dimensional pads. Ribbon,flowers, computer generated sentiments on Safmat,and gems complete the cards.
