Soldiers Generations

Hi everyone,
I have another card to share today!
This one was made for La Pashe

My card features the "Soldiers Generations" sheet from the
I love the two different camouflage papers which are also on the CD

Here's a closer look at the image, featuring soldiers through the ages.
The decoupage sheet is also available as a pre printed 
decoupage sheet or an instant download if you prefer.
I distressed the edges for some added dimension

I made a little map using a page from an old road atlas
& added some card candi & some magic mesh 
(which has been in my stash for years)!

Another little look at my card!
Thank you for stopping by today.

Embossed Hearts Valentine

Hi everyone!
Happy Valentines Day to you all!
The card I have to share with you today, is a little Valentine card!
Well it had to be today didn't it!

This was such a simple card to make & it has been bouncing around
 in my head for absolutely ages! I'm so glad to finally get it out!
I used embossed linen cardstock from Southfield Stationers for the base.

I cut two little hears from some Design Paper that I got in Lidl.
The paper was part of a book & is double sided.
It already had little embossed lines with flecks of glitter in.
I covered the hearts with some clear Versamark ink then 
embossed with clear embossing powder, using my heat gun to melt.
I would have prefered to use UTEE but I don't have any so I 
repeated the process several times until I was happy.
The swirls panel is the linen embossed cs which I originally debossed
 then decided I didn't like it so used the reverse side.

I added my sentiment, which I created on my pc, at the top.
If you're looking for a challenge to play in, the theme over at
 The Crafting Cafe this month is Embossing
Thanks for looking today.
I'm off to start my day with a visit to the dentist.
Wish me luck!

Trunk Love

Evening all!
 So Sorry, this post should have gone live earlier but I forgot to publish!
The card I have to share today is one of the cards I made for the 
Just Inklined Blog Hop
The image I've used is Trunk Love, one of the latest Love/Valentine image
Here is my card

Such a sweet little elephant!
I coloured him up with promarkers, cut him out in a square die & inked.
I matted the image on to some pink CS which I had edged with a
Martha Stewart Heart Border punch.

Here's a closer look at the image.

The papers I used were in my stash!
I've recently managed to find more on a facebook sale so am
happy to use these up!
The little flower was won in a candy draw,
I've had that for ages too!
As you can see in this photo I've also decorated the inside of the card!
Thanks for popping by today!
