Been Busy

18th Birthday Cards

I have been busy this last week, what with my parents down for a few days and trying to squeeze in a couple of card orders too.

This first two are for my neighbours Grand Daughter. The dress is from them and the other twisted easel is from her parents.

This is a A5 card with a folded back front. The image and backing papers are a set I bought from NEC by Zandra. The image has 6 layers with the dress curving outwards to give it form.

Sorry this is a little blurred its hard to hover at my age lol.
This card is 7x7 to fit in a 8x8 envelope (just). I used a mix of paper and card on this and most ran through my GC. The image is a digi by Saturated Canary which I coloured in using my Promarkers. The flowers are Kaisercrafts.
Engagement Cards
My friend in work has two lovely daughters who have recently got engaged. She asked me to make them each a card and here is what I came up with.
 This I made in a tag style 5x7 with plenty of mat and layering on its front. I followed a pattern for this out of a magazine.
This is A5. I used pinks as she is a pink girl. I ran both pink and cream through the GC and lifted the cream up after matting it. I made a frame to go around the sentiment as it looked bare. The pink dots are Cosmic Shimmer glue and the flowers are Kaisercraft.
Thanks for stopping by.

Funky Christmas Time.. Challenge 124

Hello there,
Well this week over at design team member Raquel has asked us to think out of the box and make a card or project for Christmas but NOT to use traditional colours.

I chose to make this large tag as we all need lots of these.

I started with a black tag shape and using a mixture of stamps I went to town. I embossed with white powder then cut out the tree shapes. I used gold Cosmic Shimmer Powder to bring out the flourishes and added a few gems to their ends. I stamped out the bird on lime green paper and gave him a little orange breast, I mounted him on to black then orange and used foam pads to lift him just like the trees.
I took a burnt orange Kaisercraft rose and added some SB twigs in orange and green. I then decided to do a bit of stitching in two places to draw it all in. A double ribbon at the top and to finish off I mounted it on to the same lime green paper I stamped the bird on, that way you can write on the back but also hide the ends.

Thanks for looking in this time. Please join in with us on this fun challenge.

Thanks Giving.. Challenge 123

This week over at  it is design team member Sandy's turn to choose the challenge for us all to complete. Sandy has asked us all to think about Thanks Giving or Fall and to make a card or project with that theme in mind.

This is what I have made for the challenge

The card is  6x6 . The paper is DCWV and I have had it since 2008 but unable to find a use for it until now. I die cut the circle from a pumpkin coloured card and then added the tag shape. The sentiment 's are stamps by Rubbernecker  as are the leaves.
To finish it off I used some ribbon, gems and string held down with button which has a leaf pattern on it.

Thanks for stopping by today, now it's your turn to make something and link up with us.

Christmas Bestie in Pink

I just love this wonderful image of the glamorus Bestie and thought it would be great to use her on a Christmas card.

This week over at the challenge is to make a Christmas card using silver or pink and even better both.
The card is a 6X6 white blank then I used silver mirri card, pink Webster's pages which was embossed with Tapestry folder by Sue Wilson and inked using worn lipstick.
The image was coloured in with promarkers and mounted on 3 mats of the above papers.
I used a white flourish which arrived in the post from my dear friend and then using another SB die I cut out a strip which I mounted on white. I used a ribbon strip by Trimcraft called kitten heels to go on top.
Then I cut out several poinsetta flowers and added them along with a sentiment by Personal Impressions, a few pearls to finish off and there we have it.
I know a couple of single ladies I can send this to this Christmas who would fit this lady to a tee.
I will also be entering this card in to the www. use two of something.  I have used 2 die cuts and two flowers oh and two different coloured pearls.
Thanks for looking in today.
