Thank you cards


Firstly I would like to wish everyone a happy Christmas and healthy New year.

This is my last post for 2016 and I would like to share two thank you card ideas which may be useful for you.

Firstly, I had a scrap of card left after I had used the 'caught in crystal' technique.  I simply sat it behind a die cut piece of white card and stamped the sentiment above it.

My second card was made by simply sprinkling green and turquoise Brusho crystals onto a card then spritzing it with water.  The sentiment was die cut several times, glued together then glazed with glossy accents.  This was then shadowed with a green layer before glueing onto the card.

Both cards were quick to do.  Hope you like them

See you in 2017

Crazy Dog Birthday card


Today I want to share a birthday card made using the Tim Holtz Crazy Dog stamps and matching dies, by Stampers Anonymous and Sizzix.

 I stamped the image with versa mark onto black card, then heat embossed it with white embossing powder.

I cut the collar and eyes in contrasting card using the dies which are made especially for this.

The 'happy' sentiment was cut from card onto which I had glued strips of different black and white paper.

I finished by stamping the birthday sentiment, then sat this onto an orange, then black mat before mounting it onto a card blank.

Hope you like this
