Pink Shabby Chic


This is a pink shabby chic card I made for docrafts.  Three layers of paper here.  Used backing paper with the rose design in the middle to fit into my hole. I made holes in the paper and curled them over.  I used Botanical paper with Wild Rose Papermania Capsule papers, and bows.  Hope you like it.

London Wall Hanging


I love a bit of patriotic theme so here I used the same Clarity Stamp (inspired to buy this by my crafting buddy NannieB from docrafts who made a wonderful card with hers)  I started off by scratching, poking and painting and grunging my cardboard backing.  Then I embossed the houses onto grey card, sprayed it gold.  Added clock face and Big Ben, etc from a Papermania paper

New Home Card



I made this using a lovely embossing folder from Clarity Stamps.  I added hessian to the backing, some TH words, and some tree dies from my stash. Also the clock is a Gorjuss bottle top. Grunged it up good and et voila! One grungy ol’ New Home card!

Gold Tissue Card


So, I had this gift come to me for my birthday in July and it was wrapped in the most gorgeous Gold Tissue Paper, so I had to use it as the background to this card!
Also the flower is Paperartsy and I embossed the matting with a lovely wood grain folder I bought.  Used gold Artiste spritzing ink on the card too.  The hugs word and message are from my stash.

Blue Eau de Nil


Here is a card I made as part of my work on the docrafts design team.  Its made using the Capsule Papers Eau de Nil from Papermania. Added buttons and a little rosette from PM too.

Message from stash.

Its supposed to look like a little envelope with the bit at the top!  Did it work?! lol!
