Quick Anniversary Card

Hi there,
Just popping on to post a quick card I made yesterday.
I needed to get a an Anniversary card done in a hurry so I turned to my bit box or should I say one of them. I always stamp up some extra images when stamping that way I'm always prepared for those last minute jobbies and also they can offer some inspiration when I have crafting block.
I used a Stamps Away medallion style clear stamp which are available from (I got mine at the NEC). I cut 4 layers and coloured certain areas with Sakura Stardust pens. I layered some lovely embossed paper from Crafters Companion and some purple card that I had in my bit box (Yes another one) onto a lilac pearlescent card. Wrote on the sentiment using Stardust pens and added a little bow. Hope you like it. Sorry the picture does not do it justice, I'll have to invest in a new camera.

I've made a start this morning at sorting my craft room out after buying a couple of little plastic drawer containers from Poundland. Each container has four drawers just big enough to store embossing tools, tweezers, small scissors etc. One thing leads to another and before you know it I'm moving all the cupboards about. I'm going to be really organised now or frustrated because I can't find anything!
Well must get back to it. Speak soon (hopefully)

Heart Medallion

Hi, I'm back and thought I would add a piccy of a card I made last night for my niece's Anniversary. I was really pleased how it turned out and really didn't want to part with it. I used a heart stamp that I got when I saw Jayne Nesterenko demonstrating it on C&C. I stamped the image 4 or 5 times using black Versafine so that the delicate detail would show up and embossed using clear powder. I cut layers as for a medallion then coloured them using Twinkling H2O's. I used a pearlescent light green card and layered up a delicate embossed paper (Crafters Companion) onto some black glittery paper that I had in my box. I stamped Anniversary (from Crafters Companion Occasions Words stamp set) onto some bright pink paper cut around it with deckle scissors and fixed to bottom right with foam pads. Luckily I found some ribbon exactly the same colour pink and tied a bow which I fixed to the top right. Thought it needed a little extra so cut out a couple of little flowers from the heart design and attached them with foam pads. I don't think the picture does it justice but hope you like it. Well I'm off now to do some more cardmaking and I'll catch you soon
