Happy Haunting – heat embossed Hallowe’en card

Hello everyone. I don’t think I’ve ever made a Hallowe’en card before! I’ve made Hallowe’en gifts for co-workers, friends, family and guisers (trick or treat visitors if you’re not Scottish! Lol) but never cards. So here’s my first one…. I’ve used the new Banner Year bundle to make this card. The stamp set ha stamps […]

Hello everyone. Today’s project is a romantic card that could be used for a wedding or an anniversary… To create this card I started with a card base made with Merry Merlot card measuring 19 x 10.5 cm, scored and folded at 14.5 cm. I then cut 2 pieces of Very Vanilla card to each […]

Very Versailles vellum card front

Hello everyone. Today’s project is the result of a couple of ‘I wonder if…’ moments! Lol. I do tend to have a few of them but I don’t often try to see if they work or not. The first thought was ‘I wonder if I can make a card front from vellum’ and it turns […]

Tasteful Touches heat embossed card

Hello and thanks for joining me. I love heat embossing! I used clear heat embossing on yesterday’s card with watercoloring and I’ve used silver on today’s card and it’s the star of the show in my opinion… I just love the shine it gives, but you still get a lot of the detail from the […]
