birthday card

happy easter everyone!!
i have been asked to make a birthday card for a man, and i thought sue wilson's recent design could be adapted to that.
i dont have the antique labels die she used in the focal element [yet!] so i used another one with matching stamps and a birthday sentiment

this recent sue wilson design uses the new ornate squares die and matching stamps
my background is micro beaded kanban card

3 aster flower cards

these very recent sue wilson designs i made with different sentiments
i recently got the lovely aster flower die and stamps which make wonderful flowers
these are the first cards made using my new grand calibur!!  i still find multiple small cuts eg for the flowers much easier to do with my vagabond, but i have noticed the cutting very good and the embossing much deeper with the gc.

birthday card with asters

this is one of sue wilsons recent designs that i had to have a go at!
i ended up making 3 of them as i thought they would sell well, but that meant cutting out a load of the asters!! lol!  but well worth it as the result is really nice.
i have also recently started to pierce the edges [when i have the space] as sue does  it really does make a difference.  i got hold of a piercing mat which makes it so much easier!  and sue's recent demo on tv helped too.
this card is made using all heartfelt creations dies and stamps.

hearts full of love

sorry i have not blogged for a while .... i have not made so many cards recently - the charity is well stocked just now!!
i recently bought them a great display rack for the shop because i thought sue's cards need to be presented properly.
this card from sue wilson's designs is very simple - gold and black is a delicious combo.
i have been buying up a lot of the new heartfelt creations dies and stamps and will be making my versions of sue's designs with them soon!
o and yes .... i finally gave in and bought myself a grand calibur machine!!  easy payments on create and craft! yaay!

happy mothers day

using the same sue wilson design that i used in my last post, i made a last minute mothers day card for a friend but with lilac card instead of the teal.
i think this design is perfect for this and many other occasions.

oooh la la!

a very frilly french design from sue wilson
i have to be careful of extra depth with my cards for ease of posting for buyers, so i excluded the delicious flower buds that sue uses on her design but used some tiny paper rosebuds.
the justrite stamps are simply stunning imo.

mothers day variations

these cards are all variations of sue wilson's designs using the same background stamp
i made them all into mothers day cards, some of which i have given to friends for their mums, the rest have gone to my charity
the roses on the last card are from heartfelt creations.
