Popup Xbox

I made this card for my friends teenage son
I just used grey dots made using my large hole punch and then used colored dots to represent those on the xbox controller ( checked with Google images so I got them the right way round!lol!)

I just sketched a rough controller shape and cut it out then added embellishments so it looked like the real controller. I made a basic pop up insert in black the added the controller! Taadaah!

Boobs and Bums! teehee!!!!

For my friends birthday I had loads of fun making this cheeky card and he loved it!!!

I found the template by Googleing it. It is actually a really easy card to make and so much fun!! I used a pink card base and patterned paper for the bra and knickers then edged them with red organza ribbon. I also used the ribbon for the straps. I finished the card off with peel offs in white to look like the bra stitching and then gold for the necklace and a dragonfly for the tattoo on the bum cheek!

Another 18th

I made this 18th card using a Tri fold template

The base is black card stock. The background is white paper embossed with a Script embossing folder then used Distress Inks to highlight it. I used silver mirror board and deep pink card cut with Cookie Cutter square ornate dies for the squares and a flourish die to accent the card. The 18 and the key were cut with Tim Holtz dies from mirror board. The ribbon was just some I had in my stash and I added pale blue gems to finish off the card.

Wedding Star

I was asked to make a Wedding card so decided to do something different
I used the Tim Holtz bird and cage die for the birds, added a heart gem then finished it off with peel offs and a bow.

I used assorted peel offs with a floral theme. To make the white peel offs stand out more I used pastel chalks to give it subtle colours. I finished off with a heart charm.

The pop out inserts are just another card with gate folds as well as a middle fold and the middle is cut out with a Nellie Snellen Ornate die. Stick the outer gate folds to the other card and fold the middle to face away from the middle of the other card.

You need five folded cards to make up the star.

Handbags and Waterfall cards

I made two cards for a friend. First I made a Handbag card.....
I used a score board to get the shape of the card and Distress inked the edges of each layer of card ( there are three - white base, brown layer and patterned layer)

I added a layer to the inside as I feel it gives it a more polished look.

I made a wire and bead handle, added some ribbons and charms, then added a flower using Tim Holtz Tattered Flower die and finished off with a flat pearl bead on the clasp.
 And now for the Waterfall Card...
This style of card usually goes from top to bottom but I made it on the side instead.
I used a flower punch to make the flowers and added small flower gems to the middles (each tab has one) and added peel offs for the messages.

The link for the Waterfall cards is
