CRISS CROSS - SYLVIA ZET

Morning all,

Today sees the last criss cross card from my folder of saved card plhotos which I made quite some time ago.  This time I have used a Hobby House Topper bearing this lovely image created by Sylvia Zet (Wee Stamps).  Gosh this takes me back, I made this card simply ages ago.  The insert has a stamped verse.

Well, I am gradually getting up to date but still have a few photos in my saved photos folder left to share so I will have a look through and see what I can share next.

Thank you so much for looking.  

Have a lovely day,

CRISS CROSS

Morning all,

Here I have another criss cross card which I made quite some time ago using another image coloured by a friend of mine.  To be honest I am not sure what the image is but I just love how my friend has coloured it up.

The papers and embellishments were from stash. 









Thank you so much for looking.  

Have a lovely day,

Morning all,

Here I have another criss cross card which I made quite some time ago for a friend's Retirement.  I keep being reminded of things I made and had forgotten about, and also of stamps and papers I had forgotten about.  
This lovely image is a Penny Black stamp. I really must look this out and use it again soon. 

 I am fairly sure the papers were from a Melissa Frances pack.  

The flowers were from Live and LoveCrafts.


 

Thank you so much for looking.

CRISS CROSS

Morning all,

Here I have another criss cross card which I made quite some time ago.  When my very clever friend coloured me this gorgeous Magnolia Tilda image (doesn't she colour so well!) I knew right away what I wanted to do with it.  I wish I could remember which papers I used.  I do know that most of the embellishments came from stash I purchased locally.

 

I had forgotten how lovely this Tilda image is you know.

Thank you so much for looking.  

Have a lovely day,

CHRISTMAS CARDS ALL YEAR ROUND CHALLENGE - Embellish it

Hi everyone

Today sees the midway point for the  Challenge at CCAYR, which is entitled 'Embellish It'.  

Last time I  used a Vintage image, which I absolutely loved so this time I opted to use one of my favourite Christmas images created by Sylvia Zet.  The image has been coloured by a friend of mine. This time I decided to use some of my die-cuts and loved the effect of the heart frame die from Cheery Lynn on the front of this Horizontal Multifold card. And of course I was in my element embellishing the card.   I hope you have as much fun making for this Challenge as I did.

ELISABETH BELL - Criss Cross


Morning all,

Here I have another criss cross card, but one I made quite some time ago.

As I said yesterday, when I say criss cross card, I do mine slightly different.  It is a cheat method really, the traditional method uses two card blanks, whereas mine are really just a criss cross front to the card and less pricey to make.  


The image has been coloured and hand doodled by a very good friend of mine.  I am almost certain it is an image created by Elisabeth Bell and I have a feeling it was created for Sugar Nellie originally but may be wrong there.  The papers were from my stash and the embellishments purchased locally.

I had clean forgotten I had made this card!



Thank you so much for looking.  

Have a lovely day,

KRAFTYHANDS - Criss cross style

Morning all,

I thought I would share some of the criss cross style card photos I have made and saved.  Most of these are ones I made quite some time ago, apart from this card which is a more recent one.

When I say criss cross card, I do mine slightly different.  It is a cheat method really, the traditional method uses two card blanks, whereas mine are really just a criss cross front to the card and less pricey to make.  

This card is a slightly diffrerent shape too.  It is not the normal square.  I started off with a sheet of A4 card, cut a rectangle card with fold at the left side.  I then trimmed around two inches from the right hand side of the front of the card and went from there. 

The papers are from the lovely 'Femme fatale' 6 inch papers from Kraftyhands 
and the lovely Floral Postcard Topper is from the 'Garden Floral Collection' also from Kraftyhands 







I must confess I love working with these lovely papers.

Thank you so much for looking.  

Have a lovely day,
