Die Cut Magic

Thanks go to Eileen and her blog for this idea using Spellbinders Fleur de Lis pendants. I shaded the backgrounds using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Milled Lavender and the grasses were also stamped onto Spellbinders Diamond Nestabilities with Marvy Heritage ink in Lavender Fields. The lavender pearls and ribbons from my stash.
I ended up with the muscles of a lumberjack after cutting the many shapes through my old Wizard but it's still quite an easy card to do. Thanks, Eileen.

Just Juicy

These grosgrain ribbons from Fantastic Ribbons are stunning. They are 10mm and I've used them with Marianne Design Creatables LR0109 die cut ribbon flower 2. The background is from the embossing folder, Dots & Swirls, that comes with the Sissix Texture Boutique. Unfortunately you can't get it separately, I've checked with Sissix.
Still not sure whether to put a gem in the middle of the flowers or not...

Boys and their Toys

This is a stamped card I made for my husband. I used Clarity stamps with dye based inks and a masking technique for the feature panel. I've not done much stamping before but I was inspired by Barbara Grey of Clarity Stamps after seeing her on C&C and her DVDs. Well worth watching.

Mono Moments

A couple of cards I created using the Marianne Design Creatables Ribbon Flower 3 die - LR0110. I made use of the little waste "dots" from the flowers and leaves to add to the decoration. Fiddly but fun and rather effective, if I say so myself!
The background on the left was from a Sissix embossing folder where it has the swirls, dots and a blank centre panel all in one.


It was my birthday recently and my husband added a cute new "Charlie Bear" to my small collection and my son gave me a beautiful mirror.
