Watch the birdie

Hi Crafters,

Just a quick post today.

Here is a card I'd like to share with you, that I made a while ago.

When I was browsing the net...... As you do.... I came across the mechanism for this card on Splitcoaststampers . You can find the card and the template here

I liked it so much I had to have a go. I had to alter the mechanism slightly to make it fit the camera I used in my card.

Well that's all for now..... Thank you for stopping by
Regards Sue :-)

HAPPY on the edge

Hi Crafters

I have three cards to share with you today.
I am sooooo excited with this new die I have had in the shop from Die-Versions  " Express Edges"

I just love what can be done with this very versatile die.

The first card I made was the Christmas card . Very simply, I cut 3 happies one red, one green and one gold. Glued them to the front of my card, cut out a Christmas with a Cheery Lynn Designs die. And that's it.... Done. So quick and so simple. I love it.

The next card almost as simple.

For this card I cut the card front then embossed it with the HAPPY sticking out through the gap in the top of the embossing folder from crafters companion. Made a faux bow with gold mirri card and finished it off with a rolled rose.
I haven't put on my greeting yet cos I can't make up my mind wether it's going to be a birthday card or an anniversary card. For now it just a happy card lol :-)

And now one for the fellers 

For this I have used it as my card topper. I cut the HAPPY . Then inked up the Argyle embossing folder from Darice and embossed the card below the happy. Cut a strip of craft card stamped birthday and wrapped it around the topper and fixed to the front of my card with 3D foam pads.

Well that's all for this post. Thank you for stopping by, I hope you like the cards.
I will see you again soon 
Regards Sue :-)
