A little bit of summer…

Hi everyone,

Well after all the Christmas cards Ive been doing, I thought I would make a card using a nice soft yellow colour. I think its turned out quite well. Ive still used Sue Wilson poinsettia die just to show you it doesn’t have to be that flower and it can look different just by changing the colour.  So ingredients are…

Memory box- distressed baptism collage

Sue Wilson magical butterflies

colour cloud ink in lemon meringue

swirl stamp -honey doo

sticky sheet


3mm pearls

Jade coloured Christmas…

Hi everyone,

Today is my Creative Expressions post, Im going to make a couple of changes to save any confusion and I know some of you don’t do Facebook, so where as I used to post a different card on my Facebook page it will now be the same card as this one,  I will however be posting another card later in the week on here and my Facebook page.

This is because when i post my creative expressions card I’m only allowed to use their products, which is totally fine, but I still like to use other items by different companies, so thats why I have decided to do 2 separate posts a week.

So onto todays card, Ive decided to do a different coloured Christmas card which I think works well.

The items I have used are…

Sue Wilson classic poinsettia with matching stamp, I stamped using white embossing powder on vellum and coloured with the new colour cloud blending inks using the colour ‘jade forest’

Sue Wilson snowflakes  (top corner)

Sue Wilson Canadian collection, Montreal

Sue Wilson trailing ivy inked with cloud ink ‘basil leaf’

Sue Wilson dove of peace

Foundation card ivory

Ill add a sentiment at a later date

Trellis mask inked with cloud ink ‘jade forest’

Dove of peace…

Good morning everyone, so its my Creative Expressions Monday blog, don’t they roll round quick?

Todays card I have decided to do a blue Christmas card using the following items all from Creative Expressions…

Sue Wilson snowflake background

dove of peace

pierced flags

classic poinsettia

shaded poinsettia stamp

white embossing powder

sticky sheet

blue colour cloud ink (sorry didn’t write down what blue I used…slapped wrist)

brilliant blue ultra fine glitter

3mm pearls

white ribbon


So I cut out a piece of coconut white card just enough to fit under the snowflake background, covered it with a sticky sheet, then peeled the top layer off and smothered it with the ultra fine blue glitter.  Cut out the snowflake die, cut out a rectangle frame just to give it a nicer finish, glued it onto my glitter sheet.

Stamped and cut 2 lots of poinsettia in vellum, coloured it on the back with a blue cloud ink, a little shaping then layered them up, shaped the pierced flag and glued bothe onto the background.  Added the dove with a foam pad to lift it off the card. Added some pearls to the background.

Cut my base layer card, added some ribbon and a dazzler, then mounted the background onto it.

Hope you like it…
