Trѐs Chic - Paris

One pack of Trѐs Chic paper and one pack of die cuts goes an awful long way.  This is the eighth card I've made and I've still got lots left.

Another simple card - the die cuts are attached with foam pads to add dimension.

Trѐs Chic On the Edge (Petal Point)

This time I've used a Petal Point On the Edge blank.  Again the card is simple and self explanatory.

I added glitter glue to the Candi in the centre of the daisy to give a little sparkle.

Trѐs Chic On the Edge (Elegant)

An Elegant On the Edge blank this time.  I cut one Retro Daisy in half to go on the sides of the tag and then cut two petals from a second to go at the bottom.  The daisies are attached with a glue pen but I used foam pads to attach the tag.

I really like the hot pink/black colour combination.

Trѐs Chic On The Edge (Top Notch)

Another very simple card using a small On the Edge blank.  The die cut tag is attached with foam pads to add dimension and I used crystals in the centre of the punched flowers to add sparkle.

This actually looks better in real life - the scan hasn't picked up the pink of the tag too well.

Trѐs Chic On the Edge (Scallop)

I used a small On the Edge scallop blank for this.  Again I think it is fairly self explanatory- the chandelier die cut has been inked round the edges and has self-adhesive crystals in it.  I added Glossy Accents to the Candi which gives a lovely effect.

And Again

This is my favourite card so far from the Trѐs Chic collection.  Again it is very simple - I didn't measure the strips but had to check that the centre one was wider than the die cut chandelier.  This die cut was attached with foam pads and if you look carefully you'll see I've added crystals to it.

Trѐs Chic Again

This was made with a small square Back to Basics card blank.  The tag is attached with foam pads but as the scalloped oval is paper I used a glue pen to attach it.  I think this is a very simple, but effective card.

Trѐs Chic

Well, Craftwork Cards have launched a new collection and it's called Trѐs Chic.  It goes without saying that it is rather nice, in fact it is one of my favourites!

I used an On the Edge scallop blank for this card.  I think it's quite self explanatory but the tag and the scalloped oval are attached with foam pads to give it dimension.

This quick card was made using a small On the Edge scallop card from the Craftwork Cards project kit of the month featuring Warren.  I added three strips of skyscraper Cottontail paper, attached spiky flowers over the top using foam pads and added Candi to both the centres of the flowers and the scallops.

To finish off the card I used a Tiny Sentiment inside a punched scalloped oval.

Thank You

This is another quick card made with a size 6 blank from Craftwork Cards - I chose pale blue which matches the pale blue Cottontail paper.

The strips are stuck on randomly- I actually stuck the outside two on first, then the middle on and then filled the gaps with the other two.  Both scalloped circles are attached with foam pads.

That Cute Little Bunny Again

I've taken the easy option here and used a ready coloured Warren and have also stuck to a marshmallow and skyscraper colour scheme - these two colours work really well together.

I used 1mm foam pads to attache both scalloped circles and so that the Spiky Flowers remain flat I used 1mm pads on the outer petals but used a glue pen where the petals are stuck to the scalloped circle.

Two of my Favourite Things

Botanical papers and Elegant Rectangles from Craftwork Cards!  The Elegant Rectangle is scored across the centre to form a card blank.

I perhaps should have said three of my favourite things because I use my scalloped oval punch (and my scalloped circle one too) from Stampin' Up on a lot of my cards.  I'm not a great lover of punches but these are superb.

Top Notch

Botanical again - this time on a Top Notch blank from Craftwork Cards.  I scanned this over a sheet of lime card to show the notches in the corner of the card.

This is another quick card - the scalloped circle is attached with foam pads for dimension.

Botanical Again

Just for a change I've used Botanical again - I think it is my all time favourite from Craftwork Cards.

It's a very simple card - you perhaps can't see from the image but the lime Scalloped Rectangle is attached to the card with foam pads.  I coloured the image with ProMarkers and even attempted a bit of shading on the petals!

This card was made from a Ritzy lime Elegant Rectangle scored down the centre.  I attached the Notch tag so that the edge overhangs the spine of the card which makes it look like a file divider.

Thinking of You - Warren

I've use a pre-coloured Warren again here on a skyscraper scalloped circle.  I cut away approx 4cm from the front of the card so the scalloped circle actually overhangs the edge. The skyscraper panel at the right is on the inside of the card.

These pre-coloured images are simple to use but they really do look effective.

Just for You

The blank I used for this is a Craftwork Cards On the Edge Scallop one. First of all I stuck a narrow panel of plain blue Cottontail paper to the inside right of the card. I attached a pre-coloured Warren to a skyscraper scallop circle and used foam pads to stick it to the card. I then added 3 Retro Daisies with Candi centres. To finish off I added Candi to each scallop and a Tiny Sentiment.

A change from Warren today - this is my S ATC for my card group.  I chose Shimmer and Sparkle as the theme.

I covered the ATC with some patterned glittery paper.  The large flower was cut using the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die - I overstamped this with my favourite Fancy Pants background stamp and  sepia ink.  I cut the flower in half and attached the two halves as shown using foam pads and trimming off any excess.  The two cream flowers were punched with a Martha Stewart punch and I added Candi to their centres which I then embellished with glitter glue.

Warren Ready Coloured

The images of Warren are available ready coloured! As I'm not keen on colouring I actually prefer these to the ones you colour yourself.

I used an Elegant On the Edge blank for this (size 6). First of all I attached a panel of pale blue Cottontail paper inside the front right hand edge of the card - this shows off the edge when the card is closed. Then I added a panel of marshmallow paper vertically down the centre and two more strips of blue horizontally.

I attached a pre-coloured Warren to a large marshmallow scalloped circle and mounted this on the card with foam pads. Finally I attached a Tiny Sentiment to a small blue scalloped circle, added a piece of Candi and attached it to the card with foam pads.

This little card was made using a small Top Notch card from Craftwork Cards.  I covered the from of the card in pale blue Cottontail paper and then added strips of skyscraper Cottontail paper.

I attached a scalloped circle to the top left of the card and added Candi to for a flower shape.  The card was finished off with a Tiny Sentiment.

Warren Again

I used a Petal Point On the Edge blank for this card. I chose a different picture of Warren this time and added a little colour with ProMarkers before mounting the image onto a large scalloped circle.

I attached a panel of marshmallow Cottontail paper across the inside edge of the card so that it can be seen when the card is closed.  Then I added a skyscraper panel across the front of the card.  The scalloped circles is attached with foam pads as is the Tiny Sentiment.  Finally I added so spotty Candi above each point on the card.

Craftwork Cards have just introduced Warren who is a lovely rabbit and he has papers and other embellishments to match!  To see the full range go to

I received a project kit this morning so over the next few days I will be showing what I have made with it.

The card is made using an Off the Edge Elegant blank with the shaped edge at the bottom.  First of all I put a strip of Cottontail Skyscraper paper across the bottom inside edge of the card so that shaped edge would show up.  Then I added three strips of spotty Cottontail paper across the front of the card.  Next I coloured one of the Warren Colour Me circles - I don't really do colouring as I never like what I have done so I only added mininal colour!  I stuck the circle onto a larger skyscraper scalloped circle and attached it to the card with foam pads, then added Candi to alternate scallops.

Finally I punched a circle from the pale blue paper and stuck it to the centre of a skyscraper scalloped circle before sticking a tiny sentiment across the the centre with double sided tape.  The scalloped circle was attached to the card with foam pads.

Thinking of You

I used two Ice White Elegant Rectangles from Craftwork Cards as the base of the card - scored vertically down the back one approx 2cm in from the left and stuck the two together using strong double sided tape.

Then I added a lime panel across the front of the cards and added a white panel to the Notch Tag.  Next I attached the tag to the card using foam pads,  added some Candi and finished the tag with an In Circle Message inside a punched scallop circle.

Finally I attached two blue flowers (from a Craftwork Cards Flower Store) with foam pads and put lime candi in their centres.

Ooh La La

I used an Elegant Square Back to Basics blank in cream from Craftwork Cards for this card along with some Ooh La La papers.  I really like these papers but have only done a couple of cards using them up to now.

I cut three 2cm strips of one paper and stuck them on the card vertically and then a 4cm, a 3cm and a 2cm strip of another paper and stuck these on horizontally.  All of the strips were randomly spaced.

I then attached an Ooh La La diecut to a scalloped circle and stuck this to the card with foam pads.  Finally I added 3 pieces of cream Candi to the left hand edge.  This card seemed to be lacking something so I added a flower cut using my Tattered Florals die from the same card as the scallop circle.  This was over stamped in sepia ink using a Fancy Pants background stamp.

It's Your Birthday

I still haven't tired of the Botanical collection by Craftwork Cards - I think it may be my all time Craftwork Cards favourite!

I used a Top Notch card blank and added a panel of white Botanical paper.  Then I trimmed down on of the Colour Me panels, coloured the flower with ProMarkers and stuck it to a Ritzy lime Scalloped Rectangle.  I stuck an Oval Message to a punched scallop oval and used foam pads to attach it and the lime rectangle over the white panel.
