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 😀

Autumn Frosted Leaves and Halloween Rosettes

Today….. I did a massive tidy up in my shed, it got hoovered, dusted and polished!

Then I sat down at my nice clean desk and pondered on what to make…

I started off by die cutting some autumn leaves from clearly besotted stamp, then I stamped the die cuts… and kinda left them like that… after dinner I headed back up to my shed and decided they would look good with a coating of frost…

Autumn Leaves

 

supplies list :-

  • Clearly Besotted Autumn flowers stamp and die set
  • Tim Holtz Clear rock Candy Distress Dry Glitter
  • Glossy Accents
  • Hero Arts Mid Tone Shaddow Ink : Butter Bar, Green Hills & Cup o Joe

 

Then, when I was clearing up earlier today I found the Tim Holtz rosette die that I bought at Hobby craft a couple of weeks ago, and had not got round using  yet… so I looked out some Halloween papers and gave it a whirl through my Cuttlebug.. love how they turned out, I just need to have a think about what I can make to put them on! …I think they would look good with some die cut bats in the centres… I might just do something along those lines tomorrow and do an update.

Halloween Rosette's

 

then I made a wee birthday card, with some left over scraps of paper, before heading down to the house for the night..
