recent makes

Hi fellow bloggers
I hope 2017 is ok for you so far?
I haven't posted any rojects so far as my camera and laptop stoed communicating with each other!!
It has been really frustrating but hope I have managed to sort it  by scanning the cards with my printer - had a light bulb moment! - although missed my challenge dates.

So here are a few fast and simple cards I have made mainly with diecuts as been playing with some dies I refound during my ongoing reorganisation and a couple I got in the sizzix uk sale.

First pic is using a sizzix card die and water colour paper, I used some spray inks[ glimmer mists] from my stash on the watercolour paper and then diecut  the image out and adhered to a craft card background and distress inked, with shabby shutters,  the the craft card to blend in with the diecut. Aslso cut out the sentiment with the same background piece and adhered to a sellbinders die cut from their card builder set a.

Next card is one I made for the LessisMore challenge for dimension but as above missed the cut off date! thos too uses a sizzix die which I have had for a number of years so not sure it is still available but I thought it was a fun image. The die cut is the pea pod and baby faces. It is attached to a punched iamge from a martha stewart edge punch. The sentiment is hand written.

Nearly finished! This card is a valentine's card again using  sizzix dies - 2 of Tim Holtz's  and a thinlit heart.- The key was cut from another thinlits set - New Home.
The scribbled heart was made by diecutting it from foam and then using it as a stamp with versamark and embossed with gold powder. The heart, wings and key were mounted into a background embossed with a text folder [ think it is by cricut].

This final pic is pf 4 batch christmas cards  from a set of 10 made using a sizzix card die - using just the die cut on a background - really quick and easy as a fund raiser and a good way to use up christmas papers - also as I found that they were popular in 2016 am getting a headstart.

As  I said all quick and simple but doing quick makes in between rerganising keeps me going!!
Happy crafting
