Domestic pets

This is my sample for the new challenge over on MTTC it is a "Domestic pets" theme. My card is 8 x8 which is layered with a backing paper. I then used one of my embossing folders to create the second matt, I placed it onto silver mirri board before putting it on to my base card. I then matt my picture onto white, then black card to help frame the picture. In case your wondering my dog is called Sasha and the cat is called Rossi, we do have another cat but he is a little camera shy lol.
Thank you for taking the time to view my blog, all comments are appreciated x

Vintage Christmas

This card is my take on the theme "Vintage Christmas" for MTTC new challenge. The image and the backing paper were taken from one of my many craft CD's. I layered the image onto matt gold card before layering it onto a contrasting red card. After trimming the backing paper to size I layered it onto the same gold card as the image. I used gold organza ribbon to embellish the backing paper, before layering it onto my base card. I then used foam pads to add some depth to the image before placing it onto the card.

Pink and Brown

This is my sample card for MTTC "pink and brown" challenge. I started with a 6x6 card after using one of my dies to cut a border I used some brown ink to show off the embossed detail. I then used a flower die and cut some flowers in teh same pink card and again inked the embossing. The verse I used is a stamp which I stamped onto white card then used another die to cut the circle and inked the edges before removing the die. I placed the verse onto a brown scalloped die shape, I then added the flowers and leaves for embellishments and used some card candy and gems to finish.
