Lucious Lilac

These little bears were decoupaged onto a white DL card blank that have been covered using popcorn bear lilac backing paper.
The beige dotty paper was ribboned across the blank, before the main picture image was added, along with the wording.
I made this for my friend Mandy for her birthday, and must admit this is another favourite of mine, so I think it will be made many, many more times in the future.

Happy Ducky Day

I loved this little image on the Popcorn Bear Birthday CD-ROM.
The pyrimage came together very easily, and I layered it onto some popcorn bear background paper from an individual set I have. All of the elements were layered onto a DL pale pink hammered card blank.
It was all topped off with some gold peel offs and border strips.
I gave this to Elaine today for her birthday, and was granted a huge smile when the envelope was opened.

Love To You Bear

I made this card to complete an order for another lady. She had just found out her friend was seriously ill and wanted something to show she was thinking about her.

The topper was from the 'Men's' CD-ROM, but the insert and backing paper were from the Floral CD-ROM in the Popcorn Bear Trilogy.

I wrapped the backing paper around a standard white DL card blank and placed the topper and corner peel offs.

Using the left over backing paper, I used my deep edge daisy cutter for the detail and then printed an insert, that was personalised with the ladies name.

I have to say, that this is my most favourite card in a long long time. The finish was great and looked like it was shop bought.

My customer was thrilled.

Anniversary Rings

Although this is a variation on a theme, to the Ruby Wedding card that I made not long ago, I think that it works really well, and gives a lovely finished card.

I gave this one to Sally-Ann and Mike for their Anniversary on Saturday, but I have already received orders from other people for the same or a very similar card.

It's lucky that it's a card that find enjoyable to make, LOL.

Fishing Bear

My friend placed an order for a few cards and this is the outcome of her first brief.
She wanted a card for her Dad.
When I asked what he liked, she said fishing.
Great I thought, I knew I'd seen something on the Men's CD-ROM that I could make work for her.
Inside, I used the deep edge daisy cutter and printer an insert from the disc to finish it off.
It seemed to be a success with my friend, lets just hope her Dad liked it too!

Green Bear

Another little card that I achieved by using the CD-ROM for Men from Popcorn Bear

This looks great in real life, the green pearlescent card stock sets off the colours in the topper beautifully.

Blue Bear

I was lucky enough to get hold of the Crafters Companion, Popcorn Bear Trilogy CD-ROM and used the 'Mens' CD to be able to achieve this simple little pyrimage card.

Although I am still trying to get my head around the correct sizes to use for the inserts I think adding them is a very worthwhile task. It give such a nice finish to the card.

Rock 'n' Roll Forever

Another one that I could not have achieved without a little help from Yv. x
This is such a simple card, with the toppers mounted on the the fuscia card blank and a ribbon of pale pink background paper on the side as co-ordination.
Brilliant but simple!

Jukebox Jury

I used some printables that a received from a friend for this card.
I mounted them onto black card stock and used some pale yellow backing paper cut into a 'ribbon' for the co-ordination.
Quite a useful card to add to my store cupboard for an emergency, and something that I could not have done without help from my bloggy friend up-country. Thanks Yv x

Ruby Anniversary Card

With a little bit of help form a wonderful bloggy friend - (you know who you are!) I was able to create this Ruby Anniversary card for Sharon and Mike.
I used a cream pearlescent card blank for the background, and red card stock run through the cuttlebug for the top and bottom border.
The image is where my friend came in, as I had nothing appropriate. This was mounted to create a matt, and layered onto the blank.
I typed the sentiment on the PC and chose a font that worked with the look of the card.

Inside I created an insert using a verse from a website that offers copyright free insert wording ideas. The left hand detail was created using some more red card that I put through my Martha Stewart deep edge cutter, and then attaching the the left of the insert.
I was very pleased with the result and, once I gave it to Sharon, I know she liked it too.
Happy Anniversary to you both. x

Ruby Rose

Our friends Sharon and Mike are celebrating their Ruby Wedding Anniversary on 30 May 2010 and so I made cards for them.
This was a download paper I was given, that I fixed to some ruby red textured card, and cut away the archways

I then layered up the Rose using 3d foam pads and added some gloss using my sakura pen.

When I showed it to Sally-Ann and Mike, they said they would like to give it to Sharon and Mike from them, as they had bought a rose called Happy Anniversary for them.

Very appropriate, we thought.

Very Posh Eh!

This is created from a free download paper I was given.
It is layered up with 3d foam pads, and I used a sakura gel pen to add a little sparkle to the hat pin on the lovely ladies head.
