About Me

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.

I have been busy this last couple of weeks quite a few birthdays in June and my family
always give me challenges for birthday cards.  The next four cards are for our June classes.
 I have used Dimension Stamp clock set to make this card.  I have used the large and
small cog stamp and the tick tock word to stamp the background paper.  I have decoupaged the
small clock and the hands and haveused a brad on the clock hands.  I have inked round the
background paper with brushed corduroy distress ink.  The message is also from the set.

On this card I have used digi stamp images from one of My Craft Studio cd's.   I have also used nestability
circle and flower dies. 
This is one of the nestability cut and tuck dies, the corners have been cut using one of Nellie Snellen
corner dies, and the rose has been made using Marianne flower dies.  I have used small pearls on
every other fold.
  Thought I would use some of my dies on
this card so I have used Marianne butterfly and flowers, dynamics leaf flourish and nestability labels.  The message has been stamped with the small sentiment set from Dimension Stamps and the label and paper has beeninked with victorian velvet distress ink.
