Flower card

This card is another go at using nothing but my dies.  I have got some Marianne flower dies and used a Martha Stewart punch all round. To finish it off I have used some pearls and a little tag message, only when I stuck the tag on I noticed it was the wrong way.  But as we say in crafting it's just a happy accident and I have just put the card landscape instead of portrate.

Owl Card

This a crad I was asked to make for a friend at work for her husband.  She wanted an Owl theme so hope she likes the result.
I have also stamped around the insert with the same flourishes I have used around the topper.

Another Week gone

Gosh aren't the weeks going by quickly?  I have been busy card making but only taken photo's of a couple of them. My first card is for my christmas card for this weeks theme which is Ribbon.  I had umpteen attempts before I settled for this as I knew what I wanted but couldn't work it out right.

Die cut card

Sorry I've not posted for a while but I have been making cards, but not posting them on here.
Well this week I thought I would share my first attempt at this kind of card.  I have been watching a Dutch lady who in my opinion makes the most gorgeous cards and I finally gave in and had a go. Here is the card.
I have used spell-binders for the back-ground, corners and the flower is the Poinsetta die.  The swirls are a Marianne design,the first layer is a Martha Stewart punch and finally the next layer is a Nellie Snellon. I have used Tim Holtz ink to get it some depth and finished ogreeting.ff with peel-offs butterfly(because I don't have a punch) and greeting.
Please leave your comments after looking .
Hugs Vanessa.
