Purrfect Birthday.#1specianity


Hello, been a while since I posted but thought I would share a  card recently made using my favourite brands.
Starting with this cute kitty from Pion, Furry Friends and tones of browns & blues. the backing paper was fussy cut to show the bird image who  accidentally flew the cage! The birdcage has been embossed using Frantage and finished with pretty twine and florals.
behind my image I used the Brick Wall chipboard available from Swedish House Crafts. the cute little hidden chipboard bird from stash along with pearls, florals and shabby ribbon binding.
Papers used were Our furry Friends and Maja design Vintage Spring.
sorry regarding the photo quality but I sooo need new camera but funds don't allow with so much happening at home with new pond and drive being constructed.

Mother's Day with Pion

With Mother's day approaching here in the Uk what better paper to choose than those of Pion. the colours are just so soft and feminine you simply cannot go wrong. I am not one to over indulge with emblishments as sometimes these can hide the stunning images, and I love to showcase the images as they are truly breathtaking.
Flowers/Lace from stash, ribbon, pearls, stamens available from the Ribbon Girl
chipboard ivy , Tag from magnolia doohickey kit, Butterfly border die from ebay.
Frame using Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles 7.
Pion papers used--Paris flea Market, Where the Roses Grow.

My latest love....

I have to be quite frank and admit that I have never used Nuvo by Tonic until now and oh boy do I love the Glitter Drops White Buzzard, so very sparkly!
Sometimes even the best of us do have a little glue spillage or that little bit of glue that sneaks out when you least expect it, so using glitter is a quick aid.
Today's card is one of my favourite Tilda stamps and fab for all occasion of celebration and ages.
Materials included in my card are ;-
Anna Marie design papers 8 x 8 paper pad, ruffle pink ribbon trim, flowers from stash, Doohickey club 16 heart die, Glass die from stash, seam binding, Joy crafts ornate square die, Nuvo glitter drops
stamens from stash and rat tail twine. Image was coloured using Copic markers.
