Little mouses on the moon

Today I have two new baby cards to show you, one pink and lemon and the other blue and lemon, I have added Meiflower baby yellow 10mm satin ribbon to both cards and used Meiflower stick on pearls, mixed size packs in blue and pink for flower centres.



The multisize packs are brilliant to use as flower centres and there is always something that will fit even if your flowers are all different sizes.
There are lots more colours available than shown on the website, you can always ring or email if you are looking for a specific colour.

Fabulous!

Today I have a card to show you that has been bubbling in my head for a while now, and I have finally managed to get it all out and onto a card.

I wanted the sentiment to be the main focus of my card, which meant that there was quite a lot of empty white space, and what is the best way to fill up empty space? I hear you cry LOL!, well I'll tell you...    with stick on gems, of course. I randomly scattered groups of three little pink gems around the sentiment, this filled up some of the space and added a bit of extra pizazz to the card.
Meiflower stock such a wide range of colours and sizes in their stick on gems, that you will always be able to find just the colour you need, their barbie pink gems were just perfect for my girlie card especially teamed up with the black polka dot satin ribbon.


Hope you've had a fabulous Christmas!

Happy Feetzies!

I love penguins! there is something about them that just draws me to them, I also love fun penguin images to use on my cards, and this Sassy Cheryl image is just too cute. Meiflower red gingham ribbon and AB gems in the centres of the snowflakes are just what it needed to finish it off.

Pink or blue? it's up to you!

In a post a few weeks ago I mentioned that gingham ribbon always made me think of Christmas and just to prove my point I have two Christmas cards that I made recently to show you and I have used gingham ribbon on both.

I used a couple of ultimate kits from the  Paper Creator kit for both cards, the kits come in a blue and a pink version so I made a card from each.

The brown gingham ribbon was perfect for the blue card as the papers and toppers used brown as a coordinating colour.

For the pink card I used the pink gingham ribbon and Meiflower stocks most of the colours in two widths, which was perfect for my card.

Thanks for dropping in,
take care,

Christmas shopping

Here's a card I made for the latest challenge over at the Paper Shelter, I love the satin polka dot ribbon from Meiflower and the silver grey coordinated perfectly with the papers and embellishments from a Nitwits kit. I also added some stick on gems and pearls as I love a bit of bling on my cards.

Bring on the cake!

The cards below were all made for a Papercraft Essentials magazine commission, the magazine came out last week so I thought I would share my makes with you this week. I was given a couple of collections of images from Kate Hadfield collections, One set of pre-coloured images and also the digital stamp version of the images. I made my own papers to go with the images and if you like the look of the papers you can download them for free from HERE.

All the ribbons, gems and pearls on the cards are from Meiflower

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

It's that time of year again, and I always think you can't go wrong with a bit of gingham or tartan ribbon, Meiflower sell both kinds and in varying widths as well as some fab metallic gold and silver ribbons and some metallic edged satin ribbons, all perfect for your Christmas cards.

My card for today is quite a simple layout, the main focus being on the image and sentiment and the red gingham ribbon finishes it all off perfectly, Santa also has a few tiny red stick on gems on his hat.
