Birthday Card

Hi everyone…

I have a birthday card to share today!   … It has been such a long time since I have made a card or even been up in my shed, but I should have a bit more time now that spring is here, lighter nights, better weather and Rosie can go out in the field rather than being cooped up in her stable..

So this is a birthday card I made for Beth, my son’s girlfriend, she had her 24th birthday a couple of weeks ago, and at the time I snapped a few photos of the card and this is me just getting round to the blog post now!

I used the following materials :-

  • Simon Says Stamp White Woodgrain Cardstock
  • Jane Davenport  Patterned Paper
  • Silver Glittered Paper (non shedding)
  • Stampin Up number dies
  • Scortape
  • Cosmic Shimmer Specialist Acrylic Glue

I also decorated the inside of the card, it is always nice to open a card to find a nicely decorated interior

Happy Birthday Card

Hellloooooo…..

It’s been a while and it seems like I have been absent for ages.. but I have been super busy making wedding invitations.. and they turned out sooo pretty..

So this is me back to bloggy business as usual.    I am starting off my return with a birthday card,  I was asked to make this by one of my friends at work.. love how this one came together

flower 1

The card base is 6″ x 6″ and it is a kraft scalloped edge card that I bought at the Ross Papercraft Show a few months back..

flower 2

I used some black cardstock as a layer and some pretty floral patterned paper..

The flower was a packet of basic white flowers from Hobbycraft and I used a sepia coloured spray to give it a touch of colour..

I will be back with another blog post soon as I have been asked to make a couple of first communion cards and a wedding card for a couple of friends at work,

As always, thanks for popping round and…. its great to be back 😀

Pink Birthday Cards

Good Morning Everyone!

I have a couple of pink birthday cards to share with you today… 2 the same but slightly different 😉

I have challenged myself to use the craft supplies that I have and not to buy any new things for a year… apart from the essential adhesives.     I did it a few years back and I am sure I will be able to do it again 🙂 wish me luck!

I used butterflies from my stash to feature as the focal point of the card.. one had a backer and the other didn’t hence the same but different cards 🙂

I painted them using 2 different paints, the back being Paperartsy blush and the top filigree layer using silver starlight paint.

birthday 2

Supplies List:-

  • Heavyweight white cardstock from Ross Papercraft for the base
  • Recollections 12 x 12 patterned paper
  • Silver textured cardstock
  • Lil Inker Stitched Square Dies
  • Clearly Besotted happy + birthday dies
  • Zig Glue Pen
  • Sellotape double sided tape

The card below does not have the backing to the butterfly like the card above and it glued directly onto the card.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card… it is amazing what you can make by using what you have in your current supplies…  it is so tempting to spend money and buy all the latest releases isn’t it 🙂

Here is the video of how I made the cards today 🙂

One of these cards was made for a an order and the other card will be available in my etsy store www.etsy.com/shop/seafoamblue (now sold) thank you Gina xx

As always thank you for popping round
