For this card I've used My Fair Lady Image which is available from there online shop just follow link my clicking on her name. 
I think that she is a gorgeous image however she is a bit more complex to colour but well worth it once done so well worth sticking with it.

For this card I've coloured her with alcohol pens both spectum noir and copic then was cut out using a spellbinders die shape and highlighted around the edges using a silver foil pen to created the embossed background I used a 8x8 Crafters Companion embossing folder and then finally for the ribbon slider and leaves I used some more spellbinder dies and the flower was a paper punch I have had for years.

6"x 6" Male Vintage Birthday Card

This is a vintage style male Birthday Card

To create this I've run a black piece of card stock through my grand caliber Machine using a mica mask to emboss the background and then rubbed over some gilding wax while mask still in place then when removed the mask went over the areas where the mask had covered with another colour of the gilding wax and did the same to the colour the topper and accents but with another collour of the wax and then cut out the topper and accents shapes with another of my spellbinders dies and finally stamped the image of the vintage car onto the topper with my Adirondack black ink pad.

6"x 6" Card Created Using Gilding Flakes

This is a first for me because ive created the background on the base card using my guilding flakes through a mica mask. 

Then for the floral border at the base id cut it out using a spellbinders die and then inked through with a veramark ink pad and dusted with some mica powders then finally for the topper id added some flitter glue to a square cut out mat of card and added my gilding flakes and stamped my image using Adirondack black ink pad, and mounted them all onto some gold mirri card.

Sassy Studio Designs 6"x 6" Just For You Card

This is a 6" square card a simple but effective card.

I've created this by using some more Hunkydory Adorable Scorable 300GSM card stock matted a pastel pink onto base card then put a smaller mat of pastel blue adorable scorable card into a embossing folder and ran it through my grand calliber  to give the the 4 embossed corners.
The image is from Sassy Studio Designs Called Pina Colada Pin Up Sassy that Ive coloured using a mixture of my spectrum noir and Copic alcohol pens then inked around the edge with one of my Tim Holtz distress ink pads. 

A5 Fancy Edged Just For You Card

Here is a A5 size card made using Hunkydory Adorable Scorable 300gsm card stock the background mat I've embossed using one of my embossing folders then cut out a couple of spellbinder shapes onto the same card in different colours the larger shape had some corners on the shape which I've snipped and added to the corners of the background layer.

For the flowers I've used some tonic punches and punched the petals several times stamped the centres and inked the edges then finally assembled them to create what you see on this card its very time consuming but worth the time and effort I think.  

Angelica Topper Stepper A5 Card

This is a A5 size stepper card ive made using a image from Crafters Companion  Angelica Cd Rom  using the adorable scorable card stock to match the Angelica range to mat and layer the various panels on the card  which is also available from Crafters Companion website .

My Craft Artist Professional 2 and resized the topper.
