Hi, Thanks for dropping by.

My name is Eileen but to friends in the card making world I'm known as 'ikki'. (which is pronounced I-KEY) From where or how this came about I'm not sure - it just got shorten from my original craft name of Ikemo by various friends along my crafting way! I started crafting whilst recouperating from an accident, and from my first attempts with peeloffs and paint - I was hooked! Now my passion is my BUG! and now BEADING!

In the Cupboard you will find ideas, news, tips and techniques to help you get more from this fab little machine. So come in - join the fun and Cuttle with me!

Cuttlebug Embossing and Nestabilities Squares

How nice to be able to make a card for a lovely lady celebrating her 90th Birthday! 

I do seem to have a tendency to use the Swiss Dots folder, but it lends itself to so many images and creates that simplicity and classy look that I like.  On this card I've also used the Vintage corners and the numbers from the Harmony alphabet.  When die cutting small objects I place double sided tape on the underside of my piece of card and the die face down on top.  Once cut this make attaching the pieces much easier.  The image is a digi from Chris Dark's collection. 

I've had a number of questions about my Friday Followers Gallery.  There are only two conditions for entry.

1: In this blog I only illustrate cards using die cutting or embossing techniques,  this is the same for the FFG.
2: You must be a follower of the Cupboard. 

If you have a card that you would like to share with fellow cuttlers, please leave me a comment and a link and I will get back to you.  It's that easy.

this is a lovely card Ikki - I love it when you use this stamp as you always do it justice. I agree about the swiss dots too - so inoffensive and can be used with almost any image and theme.
