Some new (and old) cards

This is a bit of a long picture post with quite a few cards that I have been making since christmas but haven't got round to putting on here. I will try to remember what I used for them all :o)

This first one was made using the 'Very Important Date' from My Paper Stash. All I did was add a little bit of ribbon.

 This one is from a Hunkydory kit. I made up the box as it came in the kit and attached a piece of acetate on the front that I had used glossy accents on to make it look like it was raining.

I can't remeber where I got the digital stamps from for this one, but it was for my cousins eldest sons 4th birthday.

I used my circle cutter for this. I cut a 6" circle and folded it in half to make the card and then cut the layers to make the rainbow. The digital stamp and the transfer letters were ones that I've had in my stash for ages and never got round to using.

A simple thank you card for a friend using the stamp and backing papers that came free in a recent magazine. I just added the extra little bits to glam it up :)

Another digital stamp that I've had for a while and never gotten round to using. I think the papers on this are from k&co

A last minute valentines day card. I stamped and embossed 'love' with black embossing powder, and then stamped the heart in silver and embossed with ultra fine embossing powder.

The backing paper and images on this one are from the My Craft Studio cd 'Tinkering With Steampunk'. The car is from a Hunkydory kit and the little clock charm was from my stash. 

I will try to post more often, as I make things rather than having to have big catch up posts like this :P

We're off to see the wizard....

The wonderful wizard of Oz!
I'm really happy with how my latest canvas turned out. It's not very often that things turn out the way that I see them in my head.

The yellow brick road is made using the 'waste' from a hole punch. It was a little time consuming, sticking them all down but I think the effect was worth the effort!

Been A Little AWOL

I haven't posted anything for quite a while. I've been feeling very crafty just lately but I've had so many ideas that I've been starting new things without finishing what I was already working on, which meant that I haven't had anything to show. I've got 3 finished projects to show though. I won't go into a lot of detail on how I made them so if there's anything you want to know, feel free to ask :o)

The first is a mini canvas. I've been wanting to have a go at doing a canvas for a while but never had the inspiration until I got a tub of Tim Holtz crackle paint!!
I also used images from My Craft Studio 'tinkering with steampunk' cd and some ribbon and flowers from my stash.

The next one is a charm bracelet. This is my first attempt at jewellery and I'm really pleased with how it's turned out.

And finally (for now at least), a scrapbook page. I may gone slightly OTT with the buttons but I had great fun making it.

I have a few cards to add as well but I will do those later tonight or tomorrow. x
