Warren and Holly

I don't often say this but I really like this card.  You can't tell from the image but I cut away a panel from the front of the card.  The text paper and the sentiment are actually attached to the inside of the card.

Warren was originally in a scallop circle but I die cut him using a Spellbinders Blossom die and mounted the image on a panel of red card cut with the next size of the same die.

Mini Warren

This was made with a Back to Basics DL blank from Craftwork Cards.  The paper isn't quite long enough to fit across the card so I cut it into two pieces and stuck them on lining one piece up with the left hand edge and one with the right hand edge so there was a gap in the middle.  This gap was hidden by putting the Mini Elegant Rectangle over it.

Yellow seemed to be the obvious choice for 'Y'.  The flowers are cut using the Spellbinders Carnation dies and the swirls are cut using a Tim Holtz flourish die.

The text stamp is by A Bird in the Hand and was used to stamp over a backround paper.

Tipsy Warren

I cut one of the the Christmas Warren images using a Blossom die and matted it onto pearlescent red card also cut with the Blossom die.

Check out the Candi - it has small gold foiled spots on it!

Warren - Merry Xmas

This is an 8 by 8 card using Very Merry Bunting across the top.  The trees across the bottom are also actually bunting but used upside down.

Thinking of You

I scored the front of an Elegant Square blank and folded back the right hand section for this card.  I think the rest of it is fairly self explanatory.

The muted colours work well with the white flowers and sentiment.

Happy Birthday Sue

A little birdie told me that Sue Taylor from Craftwork Cards has a special birthday today!  This card is very similar to the one I made for Julie a couple of weeks ago for her special birthday but this is a completely different colour scheme.

Happy Birthday Sue, hope you have a lovely day xx

Warren and his Friend

This image of Warren originally was a top notch shape but I cut it with a Blossom  Spellbinders die then attached it to red pearlescent card which was also cut with a Blossom die.

Merry & Bright

For this card I used rub ons to spell 'Merry' on the bunting and attached it to the card with Candi along the top edges.  I then spelt out '& bright' using lime green rub ons and attached three self-adhesive crystals to finish off the card.

Christmas Warren

I received the new kit of the month from Craftwork Cards yesterday - this month the theme is Christmas Warren and he has some new friends who feature on the products.

For this card I attached three of the Warren mini die cut images to mini elegant squares.  The two outside squares are mounted on foam pads but I used double sided tape on the centre on - this added dimension to the card.  The Candi is called Very Merry and has gold foiled spots on it.

21st Birthday

Here is a 21st Birthday card that I have made.  I embossed the numbers with the Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes embossing folder and then painted them using a silver Tim Holtz Dabber.

I used strong double sided tape to stick the numbers to the card and then added the Heartfelt Flowers with In Circle messages in their centres.  These were attached with foam pads (1mm where they overlap the number and 2mm elsewhere so the flower is level).

The card is finished off with black grosgrain ribbon around the spine.
