acordian card and basket


Hi ALL
I was watching Create and craft the other day and saw them making accordian cards ..I thought I would have a go myself using the dies I already have .I am really pleased with how it turned out and as I have a mahoosive collection of dies I can make lots of different shapes in the middle ...so be prepared to be inundated with accordion cards from me lol. There are lots of pics so you can see how they are put together .....
The papers are from Trimcraft first edition new leaf pad,they are my favourite autumnal papers. The fence die is from joy crafts. The flowers are from mulberry crafts. The swirl die is from memory box. The paper bows are from craftwork cards. The basket is made using a bigz  a die from Stampin up . The sentiment is my new stamp and punch set also from stampin up.The image is by Elizabeth bell  from The  Hobbyhouse

A CAS VALENTINE CARD

Hi

Hi All

It is my turn to give some inspiration over at the  CraftDee-Bowz challenge today ....The theme for this month is "Valentine " ....Instead of my favourite style of card  [fussy and girly ] I decided to challenge myself to make a more clean and simple  Valentine card..  still using traditional heart embellishments ..I think it is nice to try something that takes you out of your comfort zone now and again  and Clean and Simple style is always a challenge for me !!.
I used an 8x8 plain square white card base. I matted a piece of red cardstock on top leaving a small border around it. The white layer of cardstock was scored across at 1cm intervals vertically and horizontally to make a grid effect. I used scalloped square dies to make the red mats to sit each heart on. The hearts were made using various dies and  I made each heart embellishment slightly different to add  a bit more  interest. The two white hearts feature a  cute little heart charm and a love stamp that were included in my DT pack this month .The sentiment was computer generated and I finished the design using the  pretty checked ribbon  also from my DT pack. I made a four looped bow adding a pearl buckle slider which was very easy to make using my Fabulous CraftDee-Bowz bow maker.

Ballerina hippo.!

Hi all .
Here is a card I have made using the cutest hippo digi image  ever !...I have had the image for years  ,ever since I was on the DT for  the digi doodle shops [which has sadly closed ] . The image was called TU-TU SHY ...I used papers from first edition.The flowers are made using Su flower punches.The heart die is from memory box. The ribbon ,pearls,diamante slider buckle and gorgeous ballet charms are all from Meiflower Crafts .I  used promarkers to colour the image...This card has no sentiment as It is going in my charity pile and I think it would limit the saleability of it if it just said happy birthday,

Don't Forget you must use promarkers,tria-markers flexi-markers on your project to enter the challenge.

For my DT project this week I have made this birth announcement card ..This is the first time I have made a card like this . I was asked to make two cards exactly the same ,one suitable for a boy and one suitable for a girl for a friends daughter.She is expecting her first child and when she finds out the sex of the baby at her next scan she will give the appropriate card to her parents...I think its a fabulous idea and here is the green version [I am halfway through  making the pink version lol]
I used the perfect digi image from Eureka Stamps called Expectant Mom Balloon Holder and you will find her HERE . I coloured her with promarkers . The papers  and sentiment are from Trimcraft up and away 8x8 paper pad. The balloons are cut using a Marianne d die. The banner is made using a Stampin up pennant punch.
