For my Mum, The Owl and the Pussy Cat (cheshire?) lol


Hi,

Here is the Owl and the Pussy Cat (He's a very Cheshire grin kind of cat don't you think), a penny black stamp from the new clear stamps as is the greeting.

Coloured with Stampin Up markers and spritzed with Pearl Shimmer. Background marble on gloss is re-inker and alcohol of my own creation and then run through the cuttlebug - also the lavender cardstock.

Spellbinders nestable labels die cut out my cute picture. Ribbons, flower and button from stash and loads of love ute and hearts from Stampin Up on envelope.

Think that's all. Hope you like it. Have a great week all. Love Dawnie. xx

Ocean Faring Boat


Here is a card I made for my Brother as a get well, thinking he might like to look forward to going fishing when he is better.

Boat is stamped with Staz On on Speckled White, matted with going grey and night of navy, then a piece of gloss washed with re-inkers and alcohol which were diluted on a cotton ball first.

Navy Squares have been embossed in the cuttlebug with a wavy swirl to keep with the ocean theme. Then the whole lot is matted multiple times before placing on the front of a going grey card.

I can't seem to stop square cards rotating, it's infuriated and I'll fix them when I get a program to stop it happening. Thanks for looking.

Sharon's Birthday Card 09 - Alcohol Reinker Pastel Tartan Background




Hi folks

HELP! Can anyone tell me how I can stop my images twisting when I upload them?

Here is the card I made for my gf Sharon for her Birthday. I used the re-inker background Sharon made while experimenting with me; it resembled a tartan in pastel baby shades and I used a bit of it to highlight this cute card.

These are colours I have struggled with in the past but inspired me with my friend in mind. AND I REMEMBERED TO WRITE IN IT THIS YEAR! I often spend hours of love on the cards I made for my friends and familiy only to give them as a gift without the words I feel in my heart! It's a standing joke among my friends:)

It really was a good day from all accounts and you can see the fun and cards she received as well as her most beautiful creations too at Sharons blog by going to http://www.cardsbyrequest.blogspot.com/
