Barkley Xmas card

Well today I made a Barkley Xmas card using the Barkley everyday lets party stamp plate from Crafterscompanion. I used hunkydory 6" square easel and used red and green core impressions classic Christmas collection. 
The image is stamped onto centura pearl card stock and coloured in with my speccies. 
The frame is a die'sire enchanted spring frame. 
I used a quickie glue pen to highlight some of the words on the red coordinations card.

Feeling creative

Well today I went to Franki's crafty touch craft shop near me as Louise Welsh from Crafters Companion was doing a demonstration day from 10am till 4pm.
And she showed us products which a new like Barkley and purrdey, the new embossilicious folders etc. 
well when I came home I decided to make a card.
This 1st card is centura pearl card measured 6x6, the o Christmas tree 6x6 Xmas embossing folder. I embossed onto black magic coordinations card stock then sanded it down. I then used multi coloured glitter spray, clear gems and a little blue ribbon. Which I thought that was all it needed.

The 2nd card I used classical frame die'sire die on Neenah card stock, and stamped Barkley every day special friend onto it. I coloured the image using my Spectrum Noir pens.
I printed two backing papers from the Barkley everyday cd rom, on in pink and one in purple. Which was layered up with silver matt card. The sentiment was put onto purple backing paper and added embossed powder and heat embossed it. I added pink and purple ribbon, and I added light and dark purple pearls.thank you for taking a look :-)

My son's 21st

My son usually has me making him a Liverpool football club themed card. But this year he asked me to make him a hot card.
So I looked on photobucket and my friend Angie makes stunning toppers etc so I downloaded two of the decoupage sheets. The one with the car is a 6x6 easel card and I used black card for matting and layering I got that idea from Lynda Chapman. I got the car backing paper from a website that gives you free papers. And I used silver peel offs.

My card to my son is an easel card and using 2 linen effect mirri card in light and dark blue. And I used silver peel offs well he did say he wanted hot lol. 
I cannot believe he is 21 tomorrow I sometimes wonder where the time has gone. Hope everyone enjoys their weekend x

Envelope card

I thoroughly enjoyed making this card I used Centura pearl card and made it 8x8 
On the inside I took another Centura pearl card and cut it 11 5/8 inches and scored using my envelope board on my ultimate pro as if I was making an 8x8 envelope and cut the top off and fixed it to the inside of the card. And for the trim I used a die'sire lace border. For the front and the the inside card I used silver holographic card and used blue and yellow coordinations card stock and embossed them with the Art Deco embossalicious 8x8 folder.

The insert and card companions are from the brambly hedge cd rom using both spring/summer & Autumn/winter cd's and the buttons I used on my small circle epiphany tool with bubble caps. And I used my own pale blue and yellow ribbon. All of the ingredients that I have used on my card except my yellow and blue ribbon comes from 
Thank you for looking.
