these are some items from the country collection

a few items from this collection, which I love.

there are some lovely toppers in the A4 ultimate collection, you don't need much more on your card

above is a card made following instructions in the March magazine

here I cut some banners of different sizes and layered some, added a bow, then used the hello mini die to finish off,

the above card is made by cutting a strip out of the front of a 6 x 6 card blank, and placing the chicken wire acetate behind it, then placing the corner of the card blank back on. I die cut flowers and flourishes for the bottom right, and placed a topper and bow left top, I added a bumble bee charm to the centre of the bow.

above is an Easter wall hanging made from different paper chicks stuck onto yellow gingham ribbon, with a bow and an egg with sentiment at the bottom.

above is a 6 x 6 card embossed with the basket weave folder, inked slightly in brown, then toppers added and a border to the left, a bow and some gems, with a sentiment label finish it off,

this card is made from a sheet of the chicken wire acetate as the card blank, cut into a stepper card, I added a couple of toppers and a sentiment, then used one of the large tags as a bookmark and fastened it to the side, so is a gift and a card.

you knew there would have to be at least one exploding box, so here it is!!!

I put the little teapot and cups from the buttons and charms pack in the centre,

this is a stepper card made from a sheet of card from the natures gallery pack, it goes so well with this collection, I added ribbon down the sides on silver mirri card, paper and a topper and a bow on the centre panel, then tied bakers twine around the bottom to secure the sentiment, plus 6 gems.

and this ones is using the mini hexagon dies of different sizes, then the mini die Best Wishes cut from black mirri, and some of the sticky tiles at the bottom - easy yet effective.

some items from the Mocha geometric collection

just a few bits from my March demos with the Mocha

used the mini bunting dies for this and a strip of ribbon, stamped a sentiment and added 3 embellishments, a simple but effective card

above is a DL card blank, I cut a section of backing paper at an angle, then a white panel for the sentiment, bit of a job to line up the papers so they matched through the final image, then added a bow and embellishments.

and a stepper card, I placed a piece of burlap or hessian [take your pick] and put behind the sentiment and tag, put mirror triangles on the bottom left.

this is an off centre gatefold card. I punched the inner edges with the scallop border punch on both the card blank and the papers, matted and layered some hexagons added a few gems and ribbon down the side, I made a loop with the ribbon and fastened with a brad, so can be a man's card too.

this one is a blank hexagon card cut from kraft card, then just went down all the hexagon sizes including the mini dies with papers, then offset them built up with foam pads and added gems to the corners,

the above card was made following instructions in the March magazine,

this one is a DL card landscape ways, just 3 tags and a sentiment, and ribbon on the top, another simple and easy card

this is an easel card, the topper being made from different sized hexagons alternating with gold mirri card, then the sentiment banner with letters from the A4 ultimate pack to make the words.
