Score Board Trigger Happy

I CASEd a project given as part of a make and take recently and couldn't wait to give it a twist in my own way!

The first project is a note book. I scored grey card both horizontally and vertically to give it an embossed look.

Next I stamped various images in different colour onto white card stock.

I then set about creating a flower and banners.

To finish the front cover I then embellished it using vintage facet buttons.

I glued this to a notepad and left it to dry.

I used the same method to create a card to celebrate a friend's promotion at work.

Once I started using the scoreboard I couldn't stop!

Thanks for looking...

Walking In A Winter Wonderland

Not long now... I'm starting to feel a little Christmasy!

I wanted to share another card with you today:

I started by randomly stamping snowflakes to the right hand side of a card.

I added patterned paper to the left hand side.

I stamped the snowflakes in different colours and sizes and die cut them.

II attached these to the card using foam pads and added a metal snowflake embellishment to the centre of the smallest snowflake.

To finish I stamped a greeting in black Archival ink.

Nice and easy... for when you are creating in bulk!!
Thanks for looking....

Spinning Baubles

I wanted to share more Christmas cards that I have made, this time using the fabulous Christmas Ornament baubles from Stampin' Up.

I made different versions of this card - but all based around the pretty little bauble that reminds me of a vintage spinning ball!

To start I embossed red and green card using a candy stripe embossing folder.

I added this to the top half of the card and added patterned papers to the bottom half. 

I added washi tape to the middle as an alternative to ribbon.

The baubles to stamped and punched out then added to the cards.

Ribbon was added to make the baubles look like they are hanging.

A greeting was stamped and gems added to finish.

I loved using these baubles and I hope you like them too!

Thanks for looking.
