Sweet and simple...

Today's spinner card is slightly different to Monday and Tuesdays samples.  This little cutie is an interactive card the recipient has to follow the directions on the little tab and pull! Lol  the cute kitty cat then spins!

Simply spinning...

Today's inspiration is a very simple spinner card. The appature is a simple narrow rectangle and the spinner is just 2 pennies with 3d foam between them.
I'm new to this spinner technique cards so this week I'm going to be having a go at several different styles.  I hope you'll join us and see how I get on ☺

Embossing Folders - Day 5

Embossing makes a statement!

This is the last one on embossing folders for this week.
 I thought that I would show the Embossing that I did for the Invitation cards and Thank You cards from my son and his lovely wife,
 Jon and Jemma who married in August this year.


I used the Fluttering TIEF for all of these mostly on a single layer with mats inside .
Flourish Thinlits, Bold Butterfly Thinlits for the larger butterflies.
Papillion Pot Pourri and the Elegant Butterfly Punch for the smaller butterflies. 

Whisper White, Smoky Slate, Pink Pirouette and Wisteria Wonder are the cardstock 
colours used for these. 
The stamped flourish image is from a retired stamp set called Everything Eleanor.


Wisteria Wonder and Pink Pirouette Ink pads for the printed images.


Thank You is from One Big Meaning stamp set



Even on a single layer card, Embossing makes a statement!
As the card says, Thank You for popping by this week. I hope you get some different ideas for your own projects. 
If we have inspired you in any way, please don't forget to let us see some of your work.

Embossing Folders - Day 4

At last, here's the multicoloured card I promised!


I saw a card using this technique by Ann Craig in Australia and loved it. 
She made it look sooooo simple. So I tried it. 
This is my 3rd attempt. The others I tried didn't work well as I had used too many strong colours and the images got lost.

I used Whisper White and Old Olive cardstock. The ink colours used were Pear Pizazz, Tip Top Taupe, Soft Sky and Basic Black. I coloured in the cars using Smoky Slate Marker Pen and Blender Pen.

I'm actually quite pleased with my attempt using the Woodland TIEF and Guy Greeting stamp set.

My youngest has already asked if he can have it for his brother's birthday in February!

Embossing Folders - Day 3

Another very simple card today using a little of Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper and an embossed panel using Cable Knit Dynamic Folder.

The Dynamic Folders are much thicker than normal folders and only 1 cutting plate is used when 
embossing through your machine.

The folder gives a very deep impression on the cardstock.

 Real Red and Whisper White cardstock for this card with a strip of Real Red stitched edge ribbon to cover the joins.

Be Jolly By Golly is the name of the stamp set used for the sentiments.
