MORE box cards for lots of occasions...

Owls (Peel-offs) in black and tan , craft card, brown card, floral papers make up this Hoot of a card!

Gents stripes and a Stamped and embossed greeting (cut into 4 parts) make
 this smart card for a gents birthday..of any age!

Again, I have used Peel-Offs for the NEW HOME theme for my friends who have just moved! 
Acetate strips make the attached houses Wobble, but keep firmly in place!  I have also placed the NEw Home message on a WOBBLER for a bit of extra wobble!

A flowery cards -that folds flat to post

Another idea...

Glitter with Stencils and dsa sheet!

The Glitter Gallery - by my class last week!  What alot of glitter. 
We used Stencils onto Double sided sheet -add glitter to space, remove stencil, then add contrasting glitter to leftover dsa surface!  Ooooh lovely! 
TOP TIP - Always use a natural soap on back of stencil to prevent it from sticking really tight to dsa!  Or you will not be able to remove it without bending it!!

Pink glitter first - than Crystal glitter next!  Oh so gorgeous!

Jan and Mandy giggling over glitter!!

Pats perfection paid off!

A steady hand - Heather I think!

New From Wild Rose!

Some of the lovely new "Bluebell"  designs From Wild Rose featuring co ordinating stamps, paper pads & dies.

Tuesday, 11 February 2014


All of these designs were made from just 1 Peel-Off sticker sheet - Seaside!  I have used outline elements that have been coloured with pencils and Pearl paints and the REVERSE images were used by picking them up in a cohesive custer by using MAGI-FILM and depositing them onto foil cards!  Great results for everyone who came to my workshop!  Greetings in black were added too.

Another favourite Peel-Off sticker - "WIRE BLOSSOMS" - just the job for Mother's Day and for a Spring?SUmmer birthday.  All colour has been added with pencils and then STICKLES or GLOSSY ACCENTS for embellishing the images.  I still have enough reverse images left for aout 4-5 more cards too!
