Christmas Star

This is the second card that I have created with this months Love from Lizi kit.


Everything on my card came from the kit with the exception of some gold card stock.  The four toppers were cut from one of the papers and mounted on gold card stock.


I die cut the sentiment with the die in the kit, I cut it three times and layered it up.  The wooden snowflakes are also from the kit - I painted them gold with a Pebeo Marker.

Embroidered Birthday

This is the third card that I have created with this months Craftwork Cards November Stamp Club stamp set, this time I have teamed it up with one of the beautiful Embroidered Blooms papers.


I coloured the stamp with my Spectrum Noir Illustrator pens and then cut it out with a Tattered Lace die.  I drew around the die on some pink card stock to create a mat.


I stamped the 'HAPPY' on a scrap of the pink card stock and fussy cut three of the flowers so that I could overlap the stamped panel.

Christmas Tree

This is the first card that I have created with this months Love from Lizi kit, I love this collection it is absolutely beautiful.


Everything that I have used is from the kit with the exception of some white and dark blue card stock and blue seam binding.


I lightly distressed the edges of everything and die cut the sentiment from some white card stock several times so that I could layer it up and make it thicker.  The snowflakes are included in the kit, I painted them white with a Pebeo marker.


I really must buckle down and get some Christmas cards made, I'm really behind again!

Inky Birthday

This is the second card that I have created with this months Craftwork Cards November Stamp Club stamp set.


This one is a very CAS design, unlike the first one that you can see HERE.

Christmas Shop

These are the other two cards that I created for the latest Die-cutting Essentials Special Edition, it includes a fabulous free craft kit worth over £40.

I was asked to create three Christmas themed cards using the free craft kit.



As I said in my previous post, this commission was a bit of a challenge as I was struggling with ill health at the time and I am not very pleased with the cards that I created.

For the first card I used the icicle embossing folder that is in the kit and die cut the shop front from some wood grain card stock.  The striped papers. shop sign and window scene are also included in the kit.


For the second card I die cut the shop front window from one of the papers included in the kit and trimmed the window and door of the shop front that I die cut from white card stock.  I created the snow covered roof using one of the embossing folders and added a window scene behind the window.


Both of the sentiments are from Craftwork Cards.

Wishing you a Beautiful Day

This is the third card that I have created with the Julie Loves Autumn Sketches collection.


I used one of the solid coloured papers with leaves printed on it and coloured one of the plain papers with leaves on it with my Spectrum Noir Colorista pens, the bottom layer is a very pale pink and matches the background on the top papers perfectly.


I cut a strip of sentiments and popped out some die cut flowers - both included in the kit, I also coloured some leaves black and fussy cut them.  Everything has been layered on black card stock.

Sending Special Wishes

This is the final card (so far) that I have created with the October Stamp Club kit from Craftwork Cards - I'm sure there will be some more in the future but I have this months kit to play with now!


I stamped the image and coloured it with a combination of ProMarkers and Spectrum Noir Illustrator Pens.  I then cut the image through the centre and added a sentiment from another Craftwork Cards stamp set stamped onto a white panel.


I added some black card stock behind the sentiment strip and the main card front.
