Colette Our New Designer

“Like most card makers I started out doing lots of other crafts before I settled into card making. Over the years I have done cross stitch, flower arranging, cake decorating, Faberge style Egg decorating and finally about ten years ago I started doing a little card making, then scrapbooking. Once I discovered digital products there was no stopping me. I now have quite a few digital papers, stamps, clipart, kits etc. My hubby is sitting here laughing as I am writing this and telling me I have about a third of a million digital files, I did say I had quite a few, didnt I LOL”!

‘I like to design my cards in Photoshop before I print them out and make them up, and love adding lots of pretty and sparkly things to finish them off.’

Colette Cute Rocker card

‘For this card I have used Add-on 1, which contains two versions of the topper and decoupage, either ready to print, which is what I have used, or an editable version so that you can add your own sentiment or personalisation. I used Nellie Snellen Multi Frame die MFD020 to cut out the sentiment panel, the gingham ribbon, pearls and little ‘made with love’ charm are from MeiFlower and the beaded pin is from The Ribbon Girl.

Love this card Colette!

Wedding card idea using some gorgeous sequins

August 24th, 2011

Tracey has made this beautiful wedding card using the clear iridescent sequins and silver blossom sequins to give that extra special effect. She has also used wedding card images free from PaperCraft Inspirations, you can download them from their site and the papers are from the wedding paper pack by karsal.

Silver and white themed wedding card for that special occasion

Silver blossom sequins used to go with the colour theme

Silver sequins are also used to decorate the card, they are placed randomly and look like silver bubbles rising up the card.

A quick tip: stick sequins down with uhu glue, then sprinkle your favourite glitter over, wait for it to dry. . . and then you have flowers with glittery centres !!

I love the way Tracey has used the clear iridescent blossom sequins to create a lovely bouquet of flowers, it works really well in relation to the size of the image. Thank you for making this amazing card Tracey!

Maxine is also a moderator on the Trimcraft forum. I love her work, very cute and chic!

Abit about Maxine.

I’ve loved crafting from a very young age and have tried lots of different crafts. My passion is card making, I started card making 3 years ago and then tried other paper crafts, scrap booking,making  paper bag albums and atc’s. I love sitting in my craft room creating. I also like sewing, baking and gardening.

This is a card made by Maxine. I love the girl in this card, she is so cute! The card looks very glamorous as well.

I’ve not made a monochrome card for a while and found the flowers in my stash and they gave me the idea.

Gorgeous fabric flowers from Bee Crafty

Cute girlie stamp from LOTV

I love this image from LOTV and thought the sentiment works so well with it, I can’t remember where I got the sentiment stamp from. The papers are a 6×6 pad from Paper Cellar.

Black organza ribbon from Meiflower

Love the way Maxine used the black organza ribbon

All of the other embellishments, gems and organza ribbon are from Meiflower Crafts. I love the wooden birdcage embellishments and the black gems were perfect for this card.

I love the way Maxine used the ribbon to match the tie in the birdcage. Well done Maxine, absolutely love this card!
