Good Ole Sport

 Hi All!

I recently had a rummage through my stash looking for images and papers to make some masculine cards, and I chose the lovely vintage 'Good Ole Sport' collection from Graphic 45

There are lots of sports covered in this collection so I grouped some together and tried to theme my cards to Rugby, Driving - cars and motorbikes - and then Golf and Tennis. These are the three cards I came up with, grouping lots of fussy cut elements and having fun creating my collage layouts, then decorating the insides with some of the border strips.

Hope you like them!

Mintay 'Little One' Cards

 Hi Everyone!

Just popping by to share a set of little Baby cards that I made using Mintay's Little One collection. I used elements from the 12x12 Pack, and the 6x8 pad. 

The images are lovely and the colours are subtle, so they team up really well with Kraft Card. The card bases are made from Mintay's Fancy Card Packs. I did plenty of fussy cutting and also added some of the images inside the cards. The sentiment is a stamp from Lawn Fawn which I thought fit really well.

Hope you like them :)

Stamperia 'Sweety' Cards

Morning Everyone!

Today I thought I'd share some fold back cards I made recently using Stamperia's 'Sweety' 12x12 papers and chipboards.

The images and colours are fab in this collection and perfect today for all those Mum's who are likely to be eating chocolate and cake, and in memory of all our lovely Mum's who used to love chocolate and cake, as we celebrate Mother's Day here in the UK.

This collection is perfect for so many occasions and I know for me they will make great birthday cards in the coming months.

Hope you like them!

Mintay Lavender Farm Triple Floating Diamond Fold

Hi All!
Today I thought I'd share a Triple Floating Diamond Fold Card that I made with the beautiful Lavender Farm papers from Mintay. This card was made using only the 6x8 Pad which is a great size and still includes plenty of images for fussy cutting. 
Hope you like it.
If you would like to know how to make this style of card, instructions are on my video here of another one I made previously in different papers :)
