Recent cards

Here are a few cards I made recently.

A card for my good friend Chitra who retired last month:

Made using a Penny Black stamp (Furry Love-3102J) and the gold background is made on my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. Prima flowers and Doodlebug glitter brads finish the card.

An anniversary card for my best friend Susan and her husband Gordon:

Another Penny Black stamped image (which I was given) and Cuddly Buddly round sentiment - just love this card. The sketch was from a challenge on the cardmaking forum.

A "with love" card for my lovely sister Yvonne:

I love my Magnolia Tildas! This is Tilda with Cross and the Signpost which is perfect for putting sentiments on, I coloured both with Derwent watercolour crayons using a waterbrush. Tilda's background was made with the Cuttlebug swiss dots folder and cut with the oblong Spellbinders nestabilities, the patterned paper is from K&Co.

A birthday card for David's colleague Steve:

Using a Papernation decoupage sheet, the Cuttlebug distressed stripes embossing folder and Harmony Designs patterned paper.

And finally, a general happy birthday card made for a card challenge on a cardmaking forum:

I love this one using Tilda with Patch, she's so cute. Tilda is sitting on a round scalloped circle made using the Spellbinder round Nestabilities and edged with Colorbok chalk ink. The patterned paper is Imaginisce, I made the scalloped edge using the Quickutz Revolution 12 inch scalloped border die, some adhesive lace and Papermania gems.
