Welcome to Dottie about cards. I live on the Wirral and have been crafting for 10 years. I have a son and daughter and 6 grandchildren. I have been a craft tutor covering many aspects of cardmaking for 10 years. I was employed by a local craft company, sadly that came to an end so now I have now gone freelance.

These are some of the cards we did on July class. The poppy stamp

is from Inkylicious, one of my favourite stamps.

I have used the adorable snowman stamp set from Dimension Fourth

and the bear card I have used Forever friends black and gold stamp set.

The little cat on the card with the flowers is a digi stamp.

three snowmen

I love using the nestability dies to make this type of card. Because the stamp is
a little bit longer than the template I have cut them out and attached them with sticky pads, used glamour dust and quickie glue pen to glitter the snowmen then finished off with a red
and white sptted bow. I used white spotted ribbon and coloured it with promarker

little snowman

I used inkylicious brushes on this cards and just lightly coloured the sky the stamped the
trees from the set. The snowman is the smallest of the three. I stamped the Happy
Christmas from the set and just stamped the snowflakes around the message.


This is another from the same set as the snowmen . I have used the corner stamp to stamps
the four corners then used the snow stamp for the middle of the card. I love these two

fab snowmen

Hi this is one of the cards I designed for Dimension Fourth's launch on Create and Craft.
I love this set of stamps I have stamped front and back and positioned them down the
slope of the card. I have also used the images to make a background paper.

Cute Bunny

This card was made using an image from My Craft Studio Papercraft Library

CD rom. I jus love some of the images on this CD. I have also used nestabilities

and stamping up punches for the message.

Beauty is a state of mind

This is a card I designed again from Dimension Fourth's "beauty is a state of mind" stamp
set. I also made the paper using the images of the masks.

How Old!

This is one of the cards I designed for Dimension Fourth. The image is from the
Wrinklies. I have also used the alphabet stamps for the H and O and
used the crystal tips for the rest of the words. I just love the expression on
the old ladies face.

Just for you

Have neglected my blog because I seem to be so busy. Anyway this is one of my latest cards using nestabilities frames to create an easel card.
