Supplies List:-

  • White card base 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
  • Silver glitter paper 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4
  • Black Cardstock 4″ x 4″
  • Tim Holtz Stamp Set “a little birdie told me” sentiment
  • Pearl SprinkleIT from Colourcraft

Birthday Card

Hi everyone…

I have a birthday card to share today! Β  … 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 DavenportΒ  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

There is beauty in simplicity

Hi Everyone…

Hope you are all doing well …

Seeing as the weather is so dreich today I went up to my shed and made a wee card after work

I created several brusho backgrounds on Tim Holtz water colour paper a few weeks back, and had a few leftover pieces on my desk.. so decided to make this wee card

leave 1

The card base is 4″ x 4″ with a black card layer followed by the brusho top layer

leave 4

the skeleton leave stamp is from a Paperartsy stamp set by Lin Brown Series 29 and this was stamped directly onto the paper using stazon purple ink

leave 2

The card was assembled and finished off with a Tim Holtz small talk sticker for the sentiment..

I have been busy this week working on my next design team project for colourcraft will be live on their blog on the 17th June at 10am.. i’m excited about it already πŸ™‚

As always, thanks for popping round, I will try and blog more soon, but if you fancy catching up with me on social media you can see me on Instagram where I post lots of pictures of the dogs, flowers, the fishery and every day life… link is in the side bar πŸ˜‰

Take care
