50th Birthday Card

Oh dear, I don't know about you but I don't often make cards to order but when your boss at work asks you to make one - what do you do- Oh heck I said O.K. Then because the card is for someone ( if you know what I mean) my ideas just dry up. So this card took me aaaallllll day Sunday (I was so annoyed with myself) I just couldn't think what to do or how to place it, what colours to use etc etc.....it drove me mad and I don't think I like it anyway. Not sure at all.....




Cupcake stamp - Hero Arts
Backing paper - Bo bunny
Numbers - Sizzix
Circles - Nestabilities
Coloured With - Copics
Flowers -various
Foliage - Punch
Border Punch - Martha Stewart
Sentiment - Craftwork cards
and of course obligatory bling.....

Aaahhh well she'll either like it or she wont...LOL

More Quick Christmas Cards

Just a quick post with some quicky Christmas cards I've made to make sure I'm on target with enough cards and in time.(here's hoping)when I say quick I mean quick for me cause I spend ages agonising over backing papers!!! (I drive myself batty with them sometimes) They are a bit easier because they are only small cards.


(Above)Cute snowman stamp coloured with copics and layered onto glitter card and DCWV backing paper. I added ribbon and a punched heart.

Penny Black Saturday Challenge Wk 70

Decided to get back into the Challenge loop this week so to kick off have entered the Penny Black Saturday Challenge which I always love to do as Penny Blacks are my favourite stamps to use. So the challenge was to include buttons and bows on your card or craft item. Now this wasn't so hard for me as I nearly always include a bow and buttons on my cards somewhere....lol.




Below is a close up side on view of the card



Stamp - Penny Black
Backing Paper - Peace on Earth Collection from Creative Cardmaking Magazine
Buttons and Sentiment - Dress It Up from Craftime
Ovals - cut with Nestabilities
Edge Punch - Fiskars
Coloured with Copics
And last but not least Glitter Glue......

Have a nice day

40th Birthday Card

Morning All, just a quick post to show you the card I have made for my Sister-In-Law who is 40 this week. I stamped the image with black pigment ink and heat embossed with clear powder. I bought the stamp off e-bay a while ago now and unfortunately don't know who the manufacturer is as I think she's great. The backing paper is fab Doodlebug and yes I have succumbed to the MS doily punch (love it). The numbers were cut on the Sizzix and layered onto punched plain and scalloped circles. I nicked the sentiment of a card I received myself last year (waste not, want not LOL)




Have A good day, I'm off to work now.

Small Christmas Cards

Have been trying to catch up with making enough Christmas cards so have been making some little ones that are quick and easy to put together once the image has been coloured.



I haven't got the stamp info to hand as I'm doing this downstairs and the stamps are in the loft. I know the sheep is Penny Black and I think the Snowman is Stampendous but will have to check back. I used the Swiss dots cuttlebug folder on the Sheep card.
Hope you all out there are also making progress with your Christmas cards too!!!

Enjoy
