2014 Catch Up

Hi Crafters,
Whilst sorting through some of my files on my computer I found a few pics of cards that I had not had a chance to share so thought I would show you now.

 This first photo is of a card I made for my husbands' Birthday using a decoupage sheet from Craft Creations but I really liked making the background best. I used a Spellbinders deep embossing folder and inked the cardstock afterwards with black soot distress ink picking up the embossing and then carefully applied Versamark clear embossing ink and clear powder over the raised parts, giving this gorgeous industrial effect.
 A close up view to show the embossing.

I thought I would do this again on another card but this time using an X-Cut embossing folder covered with tiny cogs.

Another close up

And in true Monty Python style -  now for something completely different...

 ... a Wedding Card. I made my own rolled roses with  an MFT die and used a Martha Stewart border punch for the accent piece.

This card was rather fun, inspired by something I saw on Pinterest, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the spectacles a few times and layered them up to be a sturdy weight and popped them on foam pads.
I'd like to enter this last one in to the challenges at
 Come And Get It - Humorous Cards.
Quirky Crafts - #1 Clean & Simple
Well that's it from me today, thank you to everyone who has popped in here recently and left some fabulous comments, I really do appreciate it.
See you all soon,
