Layered Flower Card

Here is a card I made using the cutting file layered flower.

The cardstock I've used is Bazzill Bling Diamond and Bazzill White.  I've also used a couple of Spellbinder dies and a couple of the new Spellbinder M-Bossibities embossing folders.  I've used a Prima Sultan Centre in the centre of the flower and Swarovski Crystals along the bottom of the lacy border.

I'm linking this up to the following challenges:

Free St Patrick's Day Cutting File

Today I have another St Patrick's day file to share with you.  
The file is for the Shamrock Round.  As you can see from the samples below I've made a really quick card as well as a coaster and wine charm.

The file will be available here as a freebie for a short time before going into my shop.
Freebie Link has now expired.

On the card I've also used my Spellbinder Scalloped Circle Die and a Cuttlebug embossing folder.
All the papers are Bazzill.

To make the wine charm I cut a shamrock from shrink plastic and then coloured with Copics.

New Easter Digis

Today is day one of my Easter digi release.  I have a total of four new Cute Kids Easter images to share with you today and tomorrow.

Today I have Easter Ella and Easter Noah.   
All images will be available for purchase from my website from tomorrow.

Here are some cards I made using the new images.

 For this card I made an easel card using Spellbinder Dies Grand Labels Four and Labels Four.  Using the dies to make the easel card is really quick and easy.

Here are Kelly's cards.

Come back tomorrow morning for the other two cuties.

Easter Egg Free Cutting File

I've been busy designing Easter projects so I thought I would share this cutting file I made yesterday.

The cutting file is called "filigree egg" and is available to download for free by clicking here.  File format is svg and scut2.

Make sure you have a sharp blade and tacky mat when cutting, especially if you want a small egg.

I've set the height on this one at 4" which fits nicely onto a standard card. 

Thanks for stopping by today.

Quick Card

I hadn't planned on making a card today as I had a lot of other things to do including cleaning my craft room.
I came across some scraps of my digi papers that I printed awhile ago as well as some die cuts I had assembled.  My attempt at cleaning was unsuccessful but I did manage this quick card.

The shamrock paper is from the St Patrick's Day Digi papers I released last week.

The hat is from my latest cutting file.

Both cutting file and paper set are available on my website.
