S on S Teenage fairy

I realised this week that I've been  neglectful in making sheets for teenage girls.  I hope this weeks offering will go towards correct that! I started making a card using this sheet and will addt it tomorrow when its finished. In the meantime so that I don't keep you waiting here's the sheet.  As usual it's designed to be printed landscape A4

Here's the card I made.  I used bronze coloured peeloffs for the corners and the edge of the angel hair oval.  The backing sheet was cut using a magnet punch that you can make various shapes with. I added stardust stickles to the punched out stars, corners and the flowers in the fairys hair.  I also coloured parts of the corner peeloffs to match the blue angel hair.

Animal Christmas

Here's the 2nd weeks , midweek christmas freebie.  I've designed the labrador topper as a pyramid and the rabbit can either be 4 different toppers or your can layer them up to make a fancy border/frame round the picture.

Here are a couple of cards I've made using this weeks S ~on ~S.   The lanscape card, I used some of the backing sheet behind the frame and then put the centre piece on SU dimensionals to make it pop a bit an I also added a couple of the oars that were on the sheet.  For the portrait card, I cut the pattern from the smaller background piece that was with the toppers and decoupaged the boat onto the plain topper.  I'd made the card I think the border would look nice if I'd edged the border with some black ink.  Maybe next time! lol

S on S Boat ashore

As I'm posting Christmas sheets during the week, I'll keep the Saturday sheets for other occasions.  Today I've designed a sheet with our older male family members in mind. The image I've used I found on the www and umable to credit to the designer.  The boat layer is sized to fit the complete topper not the one with the added frame.  Hope that makes sense!

S on S Pandas relaxing

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend.  I'm pleased to say it's dry here for a change,  it's been raining all week! lol    Sadly at this time of year a lot of people get poorly so today I've designed a get well card that will work for both men and women.  As usual I've designed it to be printed landscape on A4 paper.  Unfortunately I do not know the photographer so cannot give them credit. 

As Christmas is only a short time away, I'll try and post a christmas sheet as well during the week in the run up to Christmas.  Let me know if you have any favourite messages you'd like me to put on  sentiment tags, or if you'd like the message in another language.

JAI #42

Here is my entry for the Just add ink challenge.  As you can see I've used the sheet I posted saturday .  I punched out a snowflake trying to get a christmas tree in the centre from the background sheet and used the swirly background for the side border.  The irridescent peeloff borders are from my stash. as is the 5x7" card.

S on S Hever at Christmas

This weeks sheet is using a wonderful photograph of Hever Castle in Kent UK at Christmas time, all I've done to the photo is added a frame for the topper. As a child I visited this castle many times and have since taken my own children there when they were little., I'm pleased to say they enjoyed it as much I did. . I hope to be able to do a lot of card making tomorrow so that I can show you some cards made using this sheet.  Hope you all have a nice weekend with better weather than we've had!  Bye for now.

Clydesdale Christmas

 Here are a couple of cards I've made using the latest Sheets on Saturday (S-on-S)  After taking the photo I decided the DL card needed a bit more so I added a peeloff holly leaf and a couple of 1mm gems that I coloured using permanent marker.  I,ve shown the gems in the second photo.  I;ve also made some 4x4inch cards using the sheet and when I get a moment I'll upload a photo for you all.
