Gorjuss Girls

I had a chance to play with my new Gorjuss stamps yesterday, here are the results.
I love these stamps, they are so cute but in an edgy kind of way. I used DCWV papers and card and prima flowers.

I also got some fab news today, I got a new job!! I'm so pleased, excited and nervous all at the same time! I'm off out to celebrate tonight.

18th Birthday Card

An update at last!! I've been bad at updating recently, sorry about that! I've been busy doing another commission for Creativity magazine with Forever Friends toppers and have had little other time to craft, which is a shame as I have so many new stamps! I've got the Whiff Of Joy spring collection, the Gorjuss Girls collection, 2 Sugar Nellies and 1 Pennyback all waiting to see ink! I also have a new fella so not much time left for crafting at the moment.

I did manage to make an 18th Birthday card for my little cousin, no prizes for guessing her name!!
I used Craftwork Cards chipboard numbers as templates, DCWV card stock, K&Co Berry Sweet papers, papermania alphabet stickers and prima flowers on a folded card base from Craftwork Cards.

Hopefully I wont leave it too long till my next update!

Pink and Brown

Firstly apologies for the lack of posting lately!

I have had an order from a friend for some birthday and wedding cards, one of which is needed ASAP so I have made this one tonight based on a card I made here but using pink and brown.
For this card I used papers and frame from Funky Fairys, sizzix swirl die, prima flowers with papermania brads in the centres, chipboard letters with brown doodlebug sugar coating on.
Thanks to all who left a comment on my last card, the ribbon blossom tutorial can be found here for those who asked.
I'm off to the Make It show at Farnborough on Friday afternoon, so if anyone else is going let me know and we may bump into each other!

A Little Birdie Told Me...

I made a card today with the stamps I won in the elzybells Christmas card competition (more info on this post) The papers are by DCWV, I also had a go at a ribbon blossom- what do you think? Not as good as some I've seen but not bad for a first attempt I recon.

This is the inside:It's also my entry for the Cute Card Thursday challenge blog, the challenge this week is to use metal on your card so I have used metal brads in the corners.

Colour Create Challenge

Here is my entry for the new Colour Create Challenge blog, I was asked to be on the design team but had to decline due to other commitments, hopefully I'll get to be a guest designer for them soon though!

The colours were pink, green and brown with optional butterflies, that's a good colour combo but I'm not too sure about this card, hmm I don't think I like it much...

Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!

What a lot of snow we've had! I'm working from home today as I couldn't get in to work today. In England we get a bit of snow and the country goes into melt down! Here is the view from my window at 8am this morning, its still snowing hard now! Its probably normal to some of you but its not snowed like this here for 20 years!
Hope you're all snuggly and warm and are enjoying the snow if you have it.
