Parrot Pals

Good morning all!
I'm back with another sample I made for today's launch of the new
La Pashe CD Rom "The PetSet" On Create & Craft TV

This is "Parrot Pals"
! I love the gorgeous bright colours of these feathered friends.
The grey reminds me of a friends African Grey, called "Bird" who loved 
to eat M&M's from a bowl. He was a corker!
My card is an 8x8 inch base with a bit of matting & layering of plain paper
as well as the patterened papers which are also on the CD Rom.
I used an Xcut punch for the decorative border.

I added some beaded ribbon down one side, this is from Lidl & was originally 
meant for gift wrapping. I love the different strands & I'm sure if the birds 
were real, they'd love playing with the beads! Lol
To further embellish, I cut some of thefeathers from the DP, feathered 
the edges & attached with some pinfflair glue for dimension.

The sentiment was trimmed, the corners punched & then mounted on a 
Spellbinders speech bubble die cut.
I think you can just about see the dimension in this photo!

So, don't forget to tune in to see the launch of the

Another Sneaky Little Peek!

Hi all,I have a card I wanted to share with you!

This is another sample made using a decoupage sheet "Knitty Kitty"
from the new  La Pashe CD Rom "The Pet Set" .
I made a twisted easel card using the decoupage & matching papers.
A bit of matting & layering, some tiny knitting & a few buttons to embellish!
(The base card is 8x8inch) 

You can just about see a bit of the dimension here in the side view
I apologise for the pics but I had to get my samples posted off & the weather
was just awful, so I couldn't get any decent light!

Time To Retire & Reflect

Good morning all, happy Friday!
I have a little retirement card to share with you today!

It's a very CAS design!
The base is A6 Kraft CS. I embossed with a papermania pocket watch folder
Then swooshed with some DI in Antique Linen & added some bronze gilding wax.
The sentiment was printed on my PC using Mountains of Christmas font,
then die cut with a Spellbinders die & given the DI & gilding wax treatment.
I added a little watch charm to embellish.
As you can't do retirement properly with out a watch! lol

You can just about see inside in this photo.....
I added a vintage travel paper as the recipient loves to travel.

Sneak Peek Time

Morning all, have you heard there's a new CD about to be launched by 
La Pashe!? It's called "The Pet Set"
I was lucky enough to be asked to make some samples for the launch,
using some of the decoupage sheets
Here's one of them

This is called Team work. 
The gorgeous background papers are from the CD too.
The CD has lots of cats, dogs, horses and even some birds, due to popular demand!
I made asimple little card with the addition of some Jute Ribbon & a couple of buttons.
The card base is a bit bigger than A5 just to give you an idea of scale.
(I do apologise about the photo quality but the weather was 
rubbish & I was keen to get these posted off)

You can just about see the dimension in this photo!
As always, the decoupage is a dream to cut out.

Get Well Soon

Good Morning all! 
Monday comes around far too quickly these days!
Unless, of course, you're waiting for the new challenge at
Eureka Stamps to begin! This week, the theme is

Here's my DT inspiration card

 The image I have used is Sick Puppy, Digi 2002(492)
He's just too cute & just perfect for get well cards!
I didn't do much to the image, I coloured his little ice pack with a 
black pencil & added a couple of little bits of shading,
 which sadly,  don't really show in my photos!
The card base is A6 size white CS, to which I added a mat of black paper
The image & get well sentiment were printed on to white & I've 
added two bits of black ribbon, which were rescued from a  friends top ages ago.
I die cut the Hugs in black & white & layered to give some
dimension. Inside, I've simply added a plain paer insert!

A little side view for you!
Thanks for popping in today, I hope you like my little card!

Busking Snowman

Hi everyone, happy Thursday!
It's been a busy week. I had intended to share this card 
sooner but hey ho, here we are now!

This gorgeous snowman is from
The Gift Of Christmas CD Rom by La Pashe
I love snowmen & this little guy has to be one of my fave's
I wonder what he's singing? I'm guessing it's "The Holly & The Ivy"
The papers are from the CD too.
The base card is 8"x8" square. I added a doily, some red & white ribbon,
 a big green button, a few die cut & punched snowflakes & some 
little red gems to embellish.
The decoupage is easy to cut out & layer up.

A little side view to show the dimension.
I like to keep these cards fairly simple as the images speak for themselves
& have lots of interesting little details to them!
Hope you like it!

Colours Of Fall

Good morning all, it's Monday & time for the brand new challenge
over at Eureka Stamps, where the theme for this week is
Here's my DT Inspiration card

I didn't use an image on my card today, I decided to let the sentiment 
do the talking for itself. I just love it!
I used a 6inch scalloped, square, card for my base.
The papers are from Lidl!
I love the colours & the fact that they are glittered & embossed too!
I fussy cut around the leaves of the second paper & popped the section up 
on some foam pads. I fussy cut one leaf as an embellishment.
The sentiment was printed, cut out with a Spellbinders die,
then brushed with some antique linen distress ink before removing.
I also added a little wooden heart button which is threaded with some twine.

Thanks for coming by today! I hope you like my card.
I also hope you can play in the challenge this week!

Thank You

Good Morning all!
It's Monday which means it's time for the new challenge at 
Eureka Stamps!
The theme for this week is
As we don't celebrate Thanksgiving here in the UK, 
I've made a  little Thank You card

The image I've used is Digi 209 Checkerboard Cat along with the sentiment
I like to keep Thank You cards fairly simple & I had a notion to use
Red White & Blue for this one!
I printed the image & sentiment on to the front panel.
I then added a little shading to the image using my pencils.
I added a heart shaped button over the little heart which is already on the image
as I wanted to emphasise a big heart!
The border was punched with an xcut punch.
(The ribbon is recycled from a friends top)
The base card is A6 Kraft CS.
A mat of blue corrugated CS was added between the base & the image panel.

I've added a plain insert to this card to write a note inside!
Thanks so much for looking!
I hope you'll play in the challenge this week!
