End of The Week!!! Yay!

Some inspiration ( I hope!) for you weekend makes!!!

Another Happy Card with our Carley digi on! Again, dies used are the new ones by Joy (both available on creata direct or create and craft), joy paper pads (available from creata direct) new paper pads and base card by creata (available as before)

Thought I would go for a different shaped card this time! A gorgeous digi from Sherri Baldy, coloured with promarkers. The suntan bottle and icecream dies are both Joy and new out! and the gorgeous glittery stickers are also creata available from Create & Craft!

Happy Friday to you all!

Well I have been home this afternoon and have put together my entry to Sherris challenge this month (little bit of metal)

This card was obviously made using one of sherris wonderfull designs , creata mirror card and Joy die and rest from my stash. The metal charms I added to the chains ( the bottom heart says I love you) and the bling at the top securing the charms is actually an earring that i dismantled! Oh yes, recycling all the way!
Hope you like! Wish me luck!!!

Hi All!
          What a terrible weather day we are having! Yesterday was a different story tho!
Here is my today creation which I am entering into the creata blog challenge and a couple of others! I hope you like it!

The theme for the creata challenge was blue and green pallet. The base card is green, the papers used are out of the new pads by creata. The flower at the front is made from the new creata joy flower die (coming soon to create and craft and available from creata on line direct) wooden embellishments, a couple of dazzlers and some ribbon and an odd topper I found in my stash! Hope you like it! I love it!

Saturday, what a day, groovy baby!!!

Bit of a mish mash this one! Lots of pinks and purples, die cut images by Joy and creata, Hammered white card which I have run an inkpad over and then stamped with the "flower" sentiment  randomly. A few gems and I am loving the affect! Very girly and uplifting!

This card was made using the glorious hammered card once again,both for the card base and the die cut image using a spellbinders die.
Another one of sherris gorgeous digis, one of the absolutely fabulous new designed papers  and a sentiment stamp. Simple but affective and made me smile! xx
               Have been a busy girl this week!

This is a very elegant card I feel. Created using creata hammered card and stamp. I have guilded this image with the indigo blu mega flakes. love it.x

Last peak for tonight!

Finally, for tonight, thought I would give you a last peak!

This card was using a spell binder die , an x cut die, the background was stamped using one of the new flower stamps from creata (mixed flowers set) Card used for the die cut was of the course the beautiful hammered card (goes through the joy a dream!) One of Sherri's adorable images which was coloured using promarkers and copics. a  piece of purple ribbon and gems from my stash.
This card inspiration was down to my dear niece Sydney who loves purple!
Night night, more tommorow!x
A ray of sunshine!
Thought I would let you have a sneaky peak at a couple more productions this weekend!

Had to be done! These stamps are absolutely fantastic! Along similar lines as before but using the colour theme of yellow! So uplifting! x

Hiya all!
I have been a very busy bunny this weekend! Made many cards but I must confess, I was inspired by the new creata products

This card was made using the new Gerbera stamp by creata (available from Create and Craft and Creata Direct) I stamped and inked the background with one of the other gerberas in the set randomly on the base card. Then using one of the joy dies and the wonderfull hammered card made a frame for my image (tip, i used the inside of a tape real to draw round the image!) Then used some glossy accents over my image which I coloured with promarkers! A few gems and voila!
Hope you like it! x

A Bit of extra incentive!

Oh yes, I am on a roll this weekend!!!  Thought I would post a few more to maybe give you a little incentive!

A quirky one! Love the new dies from Creata! Birdcage is a dream to work with! And the buckles are so sweet! New paper from the new pads, a sherri digi and a few gems!

Love blue!!! Have to say one of my favourites! The cloud dies are a dream through the joy, beautiful new vibrant paper out of the new pads, fantastic free embellishments with the metal embellishments ( create and craft). What a "Joy" to make! xx

Homage to our dear carley! found this flowery paper and just had to make a shabby card with the carley digi! Mixed in a creata embellishment, flourish and card made with the new craft card!
Im very pleased with the result!

Shabby chic ! what a gorgeous design by sherri! Just had to make and do a brown and beige theme with this. Ripped and teared the new paper (it hurt but I had to do it!!!) for the corners, dies all by joy!
Well, 2 posts today! Hope I have made up for my absence.
Best wishes, Michelle xx


Hello one and all!!! Hope you are having a wonderfull bank holiday monday!

Thought I would share some of my cards I have been making over the weekend for Carleys Thursday show!

Loving this one as obviously with a name like Michelle alot of people call me Shell and my son loves water! This was made with a sherri digi (of course,one of my favourite have to say!) the wonderfull Creata craft card which I used for the card base and ripped and teared for the 2 corners. New paper from the brand new pads from creata, more craft card run through the joy using the Joy dies! A few dollops of pearly doodles and voila!!!

this is an extremely affective card. Another new paper from the Creata pads, craft card to make up the card. I have jewelled or pearly doodled the centre of the flowers randomly. The buckle is made from a Joy die on my joy and then pearly doodled!!! Obviously a Sherri digi (think this is our gill!)  Stunningly simple but gorgeous!

Bit of a different one for me! Card base made from the fabulous Creata craft card, a sheet from the new paper pads. I have used a Martha stewart punch to cut into the sheet, then layered so you can see the craft card behind it. Have used the debris to make the flowers a cut another couple out of the craft card (no waste in this house!)  A sweet sherri die just begged to be used along with some new dies from creata (see their shop!)  Metal embelishments to give it that extra touch (obviously creata available from Create and Craft) and finally pearly doodles round the edge and gems from my stash!

Very summery I think! xx

Making anywhere!

Goodmorning! So sorry I have been quiet this week. My little man keeps me extremely busy.

I have been creating this morning on my bedroom floor would you believe!!!

Here are some of my effors!

This one was of course using one of sherris digis which I coloured in a combination of promarkers and copics. Matted onto creata mirri. A beautifull paper from one of the new release books, a joy die frame which I cut twice using my joy, cut in half made into semi hearts. The bird is also a joy die. The silver flourish is a spellbinders and to finish off paper flowers from my stash!
Hope you like the result!

Bit of a dramatic one this one  ...very James bond I think! Sherris lovely design just had to have a dramatic feel on this one. A joy die used and paper stash flowers
Simple but affective!

Had to just go overboard with the pink on this one! Sometimes having no girls I can get quite masculine in my colour themes! Again, used one of the sheets of paper used from the new design pads, joy dies, doilies, creata mirri card and paper stash flowers. And, obviously, a sherri design!
Hope you like! Will be on the floor later!!!
