Carry on Cleo

I wanted to show you this card, part of my DT work over at the Paper Shelter, which as well as being blinged up with lots of Meiflower stick on crystals also has some of her square Dazzles on there (turned sideways to make diamonds). You won't find the Dazzles on the website and would have to phone up to order any,or pick them up at the shows,  but they are gorgeously sparkly and come in squares, circles, hearts, marquise and rectangle shapes, they remind me of pave diamonds. On this card I have used my Promarkers to colour them in red and green so that they match the rest of the card it was so easy and looks really effective, you still get the sparkle but just in a different colour.

First Holy Communion

My friends twins took their First Holy Communion at the weekend so I thought I would show you the cards I made for them.
Chloe, her daughter had picked out the image she wanted me to use because she said it looked like she was going to look on the day. The skirt of her dress was made up of layers of flounces so I used some Meiflower ribbon to try and represent that and lots of glitter and gems to match up the sparkly top of the dress. (There is a photo of Chloe in her dress on my blog if you want to check it out)
Keiron's card on the other hand is very plain with only a small Meiflower cross charm tied on with some satin ribbon.

Thanks for popping in,

Wedding cake Stepper card

Hi there, here's a card I made using a topper set from Paper Creator. I use a few die cuts to embellish the card, then added Meiflower gems and pearls to decorate them along with an organza bow and a diamante wedding rings embellishment - also available from Meiflower.

The heart is a memory box die, which I cut out, then I pushed the centre part out rubbed it over with a pink pearly ink pad and pushed it back into place again, I then added a tiny AB crystal to the centre of each shape.

Thanks for stopping by,
have a lovely weekend,

Flowers, flowers everywhere!

Here's a birthday card I made using lots of punched flowers and 2 sizes of pink stick on gems from Meiflower.

The dragonfly is a Penny Black die and the flowers were made with X-cut palm punches. The two smallest sizes of gems are just perfect for the centres of these little flowers.

Thanks for calling by,
