Winter Sports

This is another of the cards that I had published in the April edition of Making Cards Magazine.  The magazine was themed around making cards for men, teens and boys and I was commissioned to create 10 cards using the free craft papers.


The aim of these cards is to show what can be created using just the free images and papers along with a few basic stash items - all I have added to create this card is a sentiment and some card stock.


I used spellbinders dies to cut out the images.

Your Special Day

This is the second card that I have created using one of the super new toppers and backing sheet collections over in the Splash Crafts Shop.  Each one contains four toppers, two sentiments, two borders and one sheet of patterned card stock.


This is the second card that I have created using the pretty Coffee and Cream Glamour Pack, you can find the earlier one HERE.  


I managed to create four cards from the one collection using minimal additional items, all I have added for this one is some card stock and hand made card candi.

Southern Hemisphere Leopard

I have another card to share today using the recently launched Pollyanna Pickering Sketch Book Chapter VIII - Journey to the Southern Hemisphere Paper Collection and CD ROM. You can find several more cards made using this collection HERE.


I have used the Black Leopard collection again today.  I used the card project sheet, these are perfect for beginner crafters, you can just print one sheet and follow the sketch to create a card.  I added some additional card stock layers and used one of the backing papers to create an additional base layer.


I also added a different sentiment, I cut it into a flag shape and created some card candi.


 THERE IS STILL TIME TO ENTER MY LITTLE GIVEAWAY - YOU CAN FIND IT HERE.

Birthday Shopping

Have you seen the super new toppers and backing sheet collections over in the Splash Crafts Shop.  You get four toppers, two sentiments, two borders and one sheet of patterned card stock in each pack.


I have used one of the toppers and some of the backing sheet from the pretty Coffee and Cream Glamour Pack to create my card, all I have added is some card stock, ribbon and a sentiment.


I have managed to create four cards using this pack and it only costs £1.29, that's what I call value - I will share the other three cards later, I just need to photograph them.


MAKE SURE YOU TAKE A LOOK AT MY LITTLE GIVEAWAY - YOU CAN FIND IT HERE.
