A little Princess...

When I saw this paper by Imaginisce I thought that it would make gorgeous cards for a little princess! I used three different designs and beacuse they are double-sided I mixed & matched them. The card on the right is a very simple layout using 2 papers & I added a crown on a scalloped circle and a layered flower with a paper rosebud as it's centre, layered onto a ribbon bow. The card on the left uses the same crown but it has been put at the top of a scalloped oval with a cascade of flowers on either side. The sentiments are a little different but either sentiment could be used on each card.

Thanks for taking a look!


The backing paper on this card was a freebie with a magazine. I thought it would be great on a birthday card. I cut the circle element from red card & backed it with green & blue. I added red felt ribbon from Papermania & an acrylic emebellishment from Lakeland. I wish that their craft dept. was still around-you could get some great stuff from it. The sentiment, WOW and the green dots in the red ring are all glittered.

It's time.....

Ever since I saw this Icon I have wanted to use it!. It could be used for a Retirement card too. The backing paper is from a pad I bought in the States. The clockface was cut in tan card and the word 'TIME' was backed with blue glitter card. and the roman numerals & 'it's about' were backed with burgundy. I added Primas, a bow and gems around the clockface between the numerals. The sentiment is cut from the same card as the clock face.

Mr & Mrs

You may recognise this card from a previous post. The sentiment is the same but the layout is slightly different. This is yet ANOTHER wedding card for the son of a friend of DH. The backing paper is cute, flamingoes & pink hearts! I added felt ric-rac from Papermania & a layered Prima with a Laura Ashley fabric brad in the centre. Mr & Mrs was cut from patterned paper and shadowed in beige. This was then added to a pink panel. I added some paper pricking on either side of the ampersand and cut a notch in each corner & added pearl brads from Papermania. Hope you like it!

Start your engines!!!!.....

I bought the Disney Cars cart last week and made this little beauty with it! The characters name is McQueen (I wonder who that is based on?!!!!) and I loved the face on this one. There are some lovely cars on this cart including a couple for the gals . There's a VW camper van that would make a FAB lovebug!!! I hand cut the road and grass. The sky is from a DCWV stack.

I decorated the inside too with a strip of grey paper with white lines to represent a road and a smaller set of flags.
Thanks for looking!
