Good afternoon, warm welcome to new followers and all who follow.
very chilly day today, least its dry at the moment.

Love this embossing folder by Life style crafts "Goosebumps"  advance orders    oyster stamps
had to extended the embossing on card size 7"x 5"1/2 , worked really well.
then I cut a frame with spellbinders grand labels 1. adhered this onto embossed card.

baby carridge card

hi everyone, warm welcome to all followers,  beautiful day after a chilly start, thought it was really chilly last night..

Another baby card 6"x 6" size. this time I have used Memory box dies.  love this Baby carriage, I have also used Cheery Lynn  embellishments 2# die, for the tiny flowers on the pram.

Different technique.. with the Cuttlebug baby shower folder, I wanted to deboss in lemon ink, distress Squeezed lemonade is a very bright colour, what I did is, ink my brayer,  roll onto a blending matt, then inked my folder, I got a lovely soft lemon doing it this way. This folder also does a  pattern match, which I needed, for a 6"x6" card. white base card, lemon matt a touch smaller, last embossed card touch smaller.

baby carriage,   layered up with foam pads onto a circle  plain and scallop nestie. congratulation curved at the top of circle.
border "Charlotte border" memory box, added  ribbon, adhere to card, sentiment stampin up layered onto rectangle nesties.
die cut memory box baby stuff & baby cloths, love these, small dies but great card fillers.
tiny dots of liquid pearls, bow to finish.

acetate window card

Good afternoon everyone, warm welcome to all followers old and new.

Love this heartfelt creations Christmas card collection paper pad,  gold and red goes with it so well.

A4 card cut to 6"wide, score @ 7".  shortest 5" side, cut a 2" strip from the bottom, this leaves you 3" from your fold line.
cut strong acetate 6" x 2", adhere with strong red tape, to both the card base and your cut of strip,  you will find it easer if you put this tape onto your acetate strip,   as shown front of the card.

Sun kissed fleur  flowers, have been stamped with versamark ink pad, gold embossing powder, onto blue and beige paper from the pad, heat set, then cut with matching die, brushed with Wink of Stella clear glitter pen,  layer up using  pva glue.
wrap ribbon onto a mat of red card and paper, a touch smaller that card.
do the same for the bottom section.
Adhere swirl, this is a Bella rose die, and flowers to card front, place a bow and bells with a small flower onto ribbon trim.
 Matt red card and paper a touch smaller than 7"x 6" for inside your card, then adhere, add peace script.
red stickles for flowers and dots

framed christmas card

Good morning everyone,   warm welcome to all followers and visitors.
beautiful day here sunshine...

Not sure on this Christmas card, think it`s to much snow I followed on the stamp.. Heartfelt creations "Gate way to the seasons collection".. "Winter Season" 3543.  here at   oyster stamps

I coloured  with pan pastels, first time I have used them, must say very easy to use, they blend really well together.

I made a frame with four dies from spellbinders Grand Large Labels,  still in the dies, I then embossed these cut frames.    Folder open .. dies cutting side up on top of folder....then embossing matt.. clear plate.. Make sure you do  NOT  close your folder.. this leave`s you  your embossed plain edge around your frame...
