Ann's Paper Art

This stitched card is being entered into the theme is "Love" and using one of Ann's stitching templates. This one that I have used is from 3D Stitching Sheets Book 5. I then used my cameo to die cut the mats and plate stand.

Cupcake crafting

This card was for my cousins 40th birthday.
I used my Cameo to do all the cutting, it started of with an idea of wanting to put 40 on a plate card but then I just kept adding (like you do) until I felt it was right. The fan I cut as an experiment some time ago and the feather was from a Christmas decoration, the pins are from a florists I just added a couple of extra beads on, so it pays to have a little box of "I might use that one day", glad I kept them. If my cousin only knew her card was left overs she wouldn't be to impressed.
Anyway I think it the right time to enter this into as this times challenge is "shaped cards".

Crafty Cardmakers

The theme on is Flowers, so here is my homemade flower.
I emboossed my card stock, then cut out several layers of shaped paper layered them up with a brad to hold them, then spritzed them with water and scrunched them up, popped a sentiment on  and there is my  simple card with flower.

Well this times theme on is "Let it Snow"
I whispered that with fingers crossed, please no more till Christmas.
So I cut out on my Cameo and layered different coloured papers behind to make it stand out, then cut out the words "Let it Snow".
