It's a Cracker

I love making shaped cards and this cracker shape is great for an easy festive card. It's just a rectangle with some snipped triangles and die cut ends.  It's great for some of my smaller images.

Foxy Christmas

At As You Like It this week, the design team are sharing some of their top tips, and inviting you to do the same.  My tip is that three is a magic number when it comes to composition.  For example, I've only used patterned papers on the top third of my card, there are 3 pearls, 3 layers to my snowflake and 3 loops of button twine behind it.  For some reason (there's probably a scientific reason) things seem more asthetic in trios. For a bonus point, my second top tip is to get a head-start making your Christmas cards to avoid the rush in November!

  • Tree: Frayed Burlap, Walnut Stain
  • Blues: Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon

Foxy Gifts

I've got a couple of birthdays coming up and have bought some boozy presents that I wanted to decorate for gifting.  I've used Foxes as the image on some wine tags and wrapped the bottles with turquoise tissue paper and wired white ribbon.

I do like to be beside the seaside

I love living by the sea and try not to take it for granted.  We're close enough to be able to walk to the harbourside for a meal or indulge in a gelato ice-cream followed by a meander along the promenade overlooking the bay before walking home again.  My card for today's Polkadoodles Digi Choosday is based on this theme, featuring Bella Bear Milkshake on an ice-cream shaped cardbase using Eden Papers.  I achieved the criss-cross wafer look on the cone by using the score lines on my envelope maker and added faux doodled stitching around the papers.

  • Dress: Tumbled Glass, Broken China
  • Pinks: Spun Sugar, Kitsch Flamingo

Snow Critters

Today I'm in fully frilly mode and since it's June, I thought it was about time for some Christmas creating!  Whilst I appreciate the simplicity of a CAS card, (especially when I've spent ages colouring an image and don't want it to be overwhelmed by too much faff) I also love adding all the fancy embelishments in my stash. I especially love pearls and flowers, and at the moment I seem to have a bit of a theme going on with fancy folds and pop-up card bases. This one, using a card stand, is also a favourite.

  • Bunny: Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Tea Dye
  • Brown Buttons: Frayed Burlap, Walnut Stain
  • Blues: Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans
  • Reds: Festive Berries, Barn Door, Aged Mahogany
  • Snow: Weathered Wood
  • Penguin: Hickory Smoke, Black Soot
