just because

 
a sue Wilson design using her new dies
 
I love making this type of card -- it looks really complicated but is very easy.
 
I'm still practising the pva glue dots and have found that measuring and marking every third hole from a piercing ruler gives an easier way of spacing them evenly.

let it snow

 
a lovely pale blue and white Christmas design from sue Wilson
 
it took me a couple of attempts to get this one made!!  I kept making mistakes!
 
I used cosmic shimmer sparkle pva as centres to the snowflakes

christmas wishes

 
my version of one of sue Wilson's Christmas collection
 
vintage silver and white .... beautiful and elegant I think, with a touch of bling!

peace

 
sue Wilson showed us this card on one of her recent tv appearances.
 
I really like this one - one of my favourites of the festive designs!
 
I made 2 other cards in the same design using dark blue on one and burgundy on the other

best wishes

 
sometimes simplicity is very effective
 
an embossed background and sue's bow, stamped and covered in micro beads
 
in my version of sue Wilson's design I have used a stamp I recently got from 'clevercut' which is one of 3 sentiments with a 'hand-written' feel to them

and a happy new year

 
I love this technique on this sue Wilson design
using 'letterpress' on the embossing folder [couture creations] on both the negative and positive side.
I used the creative expressions sparkle mica in gold and I actually used the copper on the gold card to give a stronger contrast and it still came out as a gold shade.
 
the stamps are justrite
