Another Birthday Card to Share.

Hi Bloggers

I just wanted to share another card with you that has now landed with its new owner.
This is a 3d card made for a 70th birthday for my cardmaking friend Muriel. It is showing the couple dancing the Charleston.

I hope to make some more cards this weekend - just need some time!

Sharing now that these cards have landed.

Hi Bloggers

I can now share with you two cards that have landed with their recipients for their birthdays.

The first was for my good crafting friend Lydia whose birthday was this week. This is a 3d Dandelion and Daisy sheet with a stamped embellishment and a charm to finish it off. I also added a few Gems for sparkle effect. Quiet pleased with it.

The second was for Ann - a very pretty Fuschia in 3d with lace and two different Martha Stewart punched borders on a lovely doily. Finished off with an embellishment and some gems. I wasn't sure about the colours at first, but grew to love them.

The third card hasn't landed yet, and when it does, I will share it with you all.

Happy Crafting!

Graduation and Engagements!

Hi Bloggers

I have been asked to make an engagement card for friends of my DIL. After looking through my 3d sheets and selecting one, trying to print it and giving up, I decided to use a stamp that I hadn't used yet from SWALK. This is the result - what do you think?

It is my nephews graduation shortly and I wanted something with a musical theme that wasn't to fancy for a talented young man. This is what I came up with.

I decided not to colour edwin but to stamp him on pearlescent card - has a nice sheen to it.

I have made a few other cards that I will share over the next few days.
Have a great day crafters.

Crafting on a day off work :D

Hello Bloggers!

Well, I had Friday off work and when I had finished my chores and before I entertained my student daughter I did venture into the craft room and make some cards.

Firstly, I tackled my July monthly stamp from Little Claire's to make two cards. The first was designed by Helen Nile. I have two photo's to show of this card.

Such a cute stamp and I am sure that I could think about many uses for this one.
This second card using this stamp was a quickie using an embossing folder called Birds that was sanded down and then with the stamped image, coloured with Promarkers and the greeting. Not to bad eh?

My last card is as a result of a trip to Hobbycraft with my good friend Karen. They had a Martha Stewart Punch of the chickens reduced from £15.99 to £8.99. With my love of hens and ducks combined with a love of Martha Stewart Punches, how could I resist. I knew exactly which stamp I would ink up to give it a try. Another quick card but effective and loved by a hen lover!

Happy crafting!
