Faerie poppet

Using faerie poppets decoupage I made this card for my dear niece. I have also used creatables dies for the flowers and a stencil by Erica Fortgens for the embroidery and embossing which i am afraid to say is on the blurry side thanks to my scanner!!!!! Grrr...

what a winter

I couldn't resist sharing this photo with you all He looks so comical  poking his head  up from the 3 foot of snow in my garden

christmas 2010

Same as before, but this time
I have used a free
download background paper, called winter wishes, courtesy of

merry christmas 2010

I think these papers and stencils go well with this layout
I have  used a background paper from a joanna  sheen cd, elines snowmen  decoupage,embossed a joy stencil using a light box but
cheated with the spotty embossing using a cuttlebug.

For this Xmas card i used a joy stencil for the bauble
which was matted onto red glitter card. The corner
of the white base cardstock was embossed using a merry Xmas stencil form Marianne. The sweet decoupage  image is from Marianne too!

Instead of scanning this spring card i tried my new camera little on the dark side probably better to try in natural daylight . I made this for a relative that has a wedding coming along . I purchased the paper from a craft shop in louth that is having a closing down sale with 30 % off !!

Sunday, 20 June 2010

This card was made for a friend who has just become a very proud Nana, i used elines decoupage and a stencil by Marianne designs i am afraid the scanner does not do the spring card any justice as it has squashed it completely flat and it has lost its Spring.
