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!

St Lukes Charity Card Appeal

I was awarded a winner's banner for my card for St. Lukes Charity Card Challenge last month, which I was delighted to receive and wanted to share this with you because if you can help them they would be very grateful.

The challenge this month is to make a card with patterns.....

 You will notice that I have used a Marianne Creatable die frame. 
I cut one in black  -  taped the cut out pieces in place before removing the cut from the die,
then added a white die cut over it to make the cuts stand out.
I also used 2 MC butterfly dies - by cutting and embossing a double layer, it gave the paper cut some strength for shaping the wings.

Thanks St. Lukes and good luck with your worth cause.
