Thank you ...

... for a friend who kindly gave us a table!!!! It is A5 on lilac card. The decoupage is again from Cupcake Crafts Oriental CD. Finished off with a piece of ribbon, a peel-off and three gems.

New Home Card Commission ...

... for a friend. A6 red card (yes, I know it looks pink ... it's the flash, and that is my excuse and I am sticking to it!). Have made a ruffled oval aperture, using Wizard Nestabilities, and an image printed on vellum from Joanna Sheen's Oriental Dreams CD. The frame and the cabachon with the "new home" peel-offs are made from wood-type paper (looks and feels like wood!). I used a Sakura glitter pen to go round the edges of the ovals. To finish it off I have used a red organza ribbon with a chinese coin on the bottom.

Two "Thinking of You" cards ...

... for my Dad and Aunt. They are both on A5 card and the images are from Joanna Sheen's Oriental Dreams CD, printed on vellum - cut out octagonal aperatures and frames using Wizard dies. The ruffled ovals are also done by using Wizard dies and finished off with peel-offs.

Anniversary card commission ...

... for a friend, who wanted it for another friend. It is for a platinum anniversary ... so I used shiny silver mirri card and a lily from Cupcake Crafting Oriental Origins CD, that was decoupaged. Finished off with a ruffled oval from Glitter Girls Majestic board on gold mirri card, a peel off and an organza ribbon for the final touches. Inside had a pop-out heart. It was a bit difficult to photograph because of the reflections!

Two simple ...

... thank you cards I made this afternoon. They were made using an image from Joanna Sheen's Oriental Dreams CD and printed onto vellum. Then the images were cut out using Wizard nestabilities. The blue card is linen A6 and the vellum is on an oval aperture, so that it can be seen through and finished off with peel-offs and Sakura glitter pen round the edge of the nestability. The octagonal card was cut using the largest of the octagonal Wizard dies and it is handmade card. Finished off with peel-offs.
