My December Commissions

A 21st Birthday A5 card made using a download from MCS called Mystical Sunset. The printed background was matted and layered using silver Holographic card and pink Glitter card cut using Spellbinder dies - Scalloped Rectangles. I used a corner punch to round the edged of the pyramaged image. A simple printed Sentiment Tag was layered onto Holographic card to finish this design.
This 21st Birthday A5 landscape card was designed using MCS The Artist Collection - Dressing Up Dolly Divas cd. For the background I colour matched a plain base colour and then using MCS Papercraft Library - vol 7 Finest Filigree cd, I overlaid it with a scroll baclground and merged them together. For the matts I used glitter card and gold mirri board and then layered the main image on top with elements of decoupage. The printed sentiment tag was cut using Spellbinder die - Twisted Metal Tags and Accents. I highlighted areas with Crystal Glitter and used 3d Crystal Lacquer on the glasses to complete the design.
This 21st Birthday A5 card uses elements from MCS Fab Glam Fifties cd by Nancy Watt. The background to which I added faded images of the gress dress and the main image was printed on Cryogen White card (Craft Creations). I then decoupaged elements to give depth and added glitter and gems to embellish, and 3d Crystal Lacquer on the sunglasses. The printed Sentiment Tag was cut using Spellbinder die - Labels Twenty - once using a piece of main background card and another on white glitter card. I then cut the glitter card tag in half and glued it to the back of the front tag to give an added edge.
A 16th BirthdayA5 card from MCS The Artist Collection - Dressing Up Dolly Divas - which features a matt of pink Glitter card and a printed "Happy Birthday" matt with the figures were both cut using Spellbinder dies - Labels Twenty Three. I decoupaged the central figure and used Crystal Glitter amd gems to embellish the design. The printed Sentiment Tags were cut using Spellbinder die - Labels Twenty.
This 80th Birthday A5 acetate bow fronted card is from MCS Papercraft Library - vol 7 Finest Filigree. The printed backgrounds are layered images and effects to create a vignette which was then glittered using Crystal Glitter. The acetate was cut to fit and wrapped around. The printed Sentiment Tag was cut using Spellbinder die - Grommet Tags - and the gold mirri board flourish cut using Twisted metal Tags and Accents. Paper flowers from my crafty stash were layered up and glued and a gem added to complete this design.
This contemporary A5 landscape Christmas card was made using deep blue cardstock and silver mirri board. The matts were cut using Spellbinder dies - Grand Labels Four - from a white satin card and the blue card. The snowflakes and flourishes were cut using Spellbinders - Create A Flake Three and Floral Flourishes from white satin paper. The printed Sentiment Tag was cut using Spellbinders die -Labels Four. White satin ribbon was pleated along the front and Ice from MCS Embellishment Attic was added to complete the design.
These 3 A5 traditional Christmas cards were designed as a set to complement each other using various Spellbinder dies and images from MCS cds.

My samples for MCS Floriography POD 6th Dec2011

Hello, my blogging friends from a very gusty and wild December afternoon in North Ayrshire - I do hope you are all safe and sound where you are!
Well that will teach me...lol! I have just spent the best part of a hour uploading these photos and detailing materials and methods under each one, without saving as I was going along, and the website booted me out! So, I'm afraid that it's only the images for now as I've run out of time!
If, however, anyone would like to know what dies etc I've used, please feel free to ask and I'll happily reply to you.
It's always a thrill for me to design my samples and share them with you, so I hope you enjoy what you see enough to leave me a comment...please!
Happy crafting to all,
Sheenagh x
