Its been along time

Hi there

Sorry its been so long updating my blog but I lost my mojo with my cardmaking and was down to making about 1 card a week, so I took up jewellery making.
I have added a tab above, JEWELLERY FOR SALE IN MY ETSY SHOP,  click on the tab and it will show you the items I have got round to adding to my new Etsy shop. Ive still got quite a few jewellery items to add and I will probably add some of my cards as well at some point. So please share with your family and friends as its getting to that time of year when we start looking for unusual presents.

Here is a couple of my items that I have made and already sold.

 Earrings still available but not listed yet
Loved making this one off piece.

Anyway here are a few cards I made in the last couple of months

Cards Made this week.

Hi there
Here are a few cards I have made this week.

Decoupage from Craft Creations
 Creative Crafting World Pollyanna Pickering`s World of Wildlife cd, I opened the image of the giraffe in Craft Artist Pro, cropped the image so I just had the giraffe and birds, resized it, copy and pasted to get 2nd image and then flipped the image. I gatefolded the card and printed the image twice.
Inside I opened the image in Craft Artist Pro and copy pasted the giraffe image, resized it so that it fit over the original centre image, grouped together then printed off and attached to the inside panel.

 Craft Creations Decoupage
 Made with a Spellbinders corner die, Sue Wilson flowers and sentiment
 Next 2 are made from Debbi Moore Shabby Chic Sports 2 CD which came with Issue 31 of Bringing Inspiration To You Magazine

 Inked a piece of white card with Tim Holtz Distressed Ink Shaded Lilac, Seedless Preserve and Dusty Concord, used Versamark pad through dotty stencil, covered it with clear embossing powder and heat set, stamped sentiment onto vellum and heat embossed with white embossing powder, stamped the butterfly with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder and die cut it and the base in vellum. Matt and layered to white card and matt and layered to inked card and attached to a scalloped edge card.

Hope you enjoyed my inspiration.
Till the next time
