Ruby Wedding Anniversary

This is a nice Anniversary card and could be adapted in many colour schemes. It would also make a nice Wedding card where the names of the Bride & Groom could be added to the heart centre.
The card is made using a martha stewart punch to punch out the right-hand border and some hearts that were cut out using the e-craft. The back hearts are edged in lace and then 3d up. The white heart is added flat before the flowers were added...and a hint of glitter on the flowers of course! The hearts on the right are embellished with individual pearls as is the left-hand side of the card to define the scallop.

Butterfly Bliss

Below is a card I designed for a Wednesday night class for the Kilkenny Card Club. Hope you like it!
The card is made using the Spellbinders grand circles and grand scalloped circles.  The sentiment stamp and border stamp is from the Sheena Douglas range and the butterfly is a Marianne creatables die-cut.

Workshop in Kilkenny on March 23rd

Hello to all,
I'm putting up this post today because I got a telling off at my class in 'Craftybride' in Kilkenny last Saturday when some of the ladies at the workshop gave out to me because I wasn't keeping my blog up to date with inspiration for them.  It's a compliment to hear people say that they keep an eye on my blog but not something I ever expected I suppose.  Hopefully the telling off is exactly what I needed to get me back on track with my blogging again, so here's some photo's of the cards we done on Saturday. Hope you like them.

This is a man's card can could be used as either a birthday card or also as a retirement card just to change the wording. The clock is from the Marianne die-cut range and the border is done using the tonic celtic border pattern.

This communion card is made using white and silver with just a splash of colour depending on whether it is a boy or a girl. The dies are from the crosses 2 range of spellbinders and the border is the Parisian accents spellbinders border. I think there is a lovely simplicity in the card and again could be adapted very easily to make a Christening, Wedding or Anniversary card.

This Wedding card is made using the go kreate arch die cuts.  The ivy embellishments are cut using the quickcutz long ivy border and the image is a lovely simple image, glittered on the veil to give it a nice elegant finish.
