3D Shoes teamed with Debbi Moore Art Deco

These 3D sheets are just lovely. They have a porcelain effect – all shiny and elegant. What could be better but to team them up with Debbi Moore’s Art Deco designs.

Christmas Card Ideas

I have tried to put together a few simple ideas for Christmas cards using some of the tools I had already in my craft cupboard and some of the supplies from my store. 

Any of these ideas and styles can be adapted to suit the supplies and tools you already have in your cupboard. Sometimes it just means you only need to add one or two extra supplies to give your project the final touch.

Check out what you have in your craft cupboard!

Now for a few ideas.

Centre Step Card - Christmas Tree Double layered


 What a surprise I had when after writing up the instructions for the Centre Step Card following a demo on You Tube – I went to my craft supplies and I found that I had the exact size card in stock to create the card without cutting it down. All I needed to do was score, slice and fold. Too easy!

If you would like the instructions for the Centre Step card, leave a comment here or email me and I will forward them to you.


Another Centre Step Card

I will record the supplies I used at the bottom of this BLOG post.

and another


the inside


So quick and simple to make.


Another quick and simple one - what embossing folders do you have in your cupboard?


Some Peel Offs, some foil and an embossing folder!


Die cutters, coloured card stock, peel offs and embossing folder.


I painted the Peel Off sentiments with Dufex Brush Pens and now I have Green!


Patterned Acetate was used here. I think I will stock it. I like the fresh look! Now I have to decide - do I add a design in behind on the insert sheet or leave it white?


 I added a few Transparent Peel Off Baubles as well – in amongst the stars!

Moved away from the traditional Christmas colours and used silver blue ink to colour the embossed design. I used the Brush Pens again to change the Peel Off colours.


I used the same embossing folder to emboss the foil and then cut them out and popped them up on the background. The Peel Off sentiments and bows were coloured with the Brush Pens.


 I saw this idea below on You Tube and thought it didn’t look toooo difficult. Give it a try!


Half Swing Card

Card ideas using Peel Offs

Now you are either a fan of Peel Offs or you’re not! But………..I have to be honest and say that I haven’t used them much in the past but every time I go and see my distributor she shows  me the latest arrivals and I can’t resist and then………….I just have to play so that I can show others how to play and create with these embellishments.

Now…………….. I go to my distributor with a list of the ones that we want her to order in.

 So after play day yesterday I came up with these.

(See below for links to products.)


For both of these I used some scrap from my stash and laid the kimono etc on that and then cut around. Of course you don’t need to. The Peel Off can just be placed on your background card.

And another

 Again I cut these out of coloured paper and then I used a gel pen and coloured in the rose design on each fashion article. It was quite simple to do and you could use any number of colouring tools.

Ladies Fashion

 The shirt is just laid onto a piece of check paper and then I coloured in the tie with a gel pen. Who would know!! Someone might think I took the time to cut out small pieces to place on the tie…………….no time for that but of course you could!!

Man's shirt

 Again I have coloured the  rose design on the crockery with a gel pen. It certainly brings out the design but it is not essential. If I made this again I would make a large card to get all the pieces on but then again if I  used the same size card I could leave off the sugar basin and/or a cup.

Tea for Two!

So…. are you ready to give Peel off’s a go as well. If you decide you want to,  tell me to pop in a piece of that cotton lace you see above with your order.
It’s snowing here today and not the best day to photograph cards but I think you get the idea!
