(Still) in the Pink!

I seem to be on a roll with the pink card stock at the moment! Here's a couple of cards I've made recently - the first was for a friend's birthday so used one of my all time favourite brands, Penny Black.


The image is called "A Tender Hug!" and is coloured with Copics/Spectrum Noir, and added a little glitter to the flowers with a glitter pen.  Cut and layered this image with Nesties.  Base of card is made up with SU card stock, Sue Wilson embossing folder and a die cut from Cheery Lynn Designs (which I made the mistake of sticking on the wrong way because I was distracted with the football on TV!). Sentiment is Paper Smooches stamped onto an MFT die.  Finally, added some flat backed pearls from Hobby House.

The second card is for one of my elderly ladies who is currently in hospital.  


I've used the Studley set of dies from Tattered lace cut in white and pink and shadowed slightly to give a bit of colour.  The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and the flowers from my stash. Would really have liked to have added a few more bigger flowers, however, needed to fit this card in an envelope rather than a box.

Pretty in Pink

Here's a card I made recently for a friend who needed something for a Church Blessing following a marriage.  I love this image and do have the actual stamp, but to save time, used one of Lily of the Valley's pre-coloured images…makes life so simple!


I used some SU pink card stock then covered it with the Tonic Beautiful Bramble die cut from Centura Pearl card.  The image has been cut with a Nestie then added a bow, flowers and heart hat pin (all from The Ribbon Girl)to finish it.

Gorjuss Bookmark

A quickie bookmark I made with the scraps of paper I've been using for the cards I made recently.  Thought this Gorjuss decoupage image was ideal for a bookmark - very quick to put together!

Gorjuss x 3

Here's a few cards I put together whilst waiting for the dinner to cook…roast lamb, yum!  They're all Gorjuss Girls decoupage with VERY simple layouts but needed some quick cards as my card basket is empty!




Hope everyone is enjoying their Easter break.

Easter Treats

Here are a couple of little Easter pouches, filled with chocolate eggs, which I made for a couple of friends.


The papers and sentiments, as well as the original design/idea of the pouches is from Pink Petticoat - I just added some raffia, glue and a couple of punches. Super quick and super easy to make!

Hugs

I've really no idea if anyone still visits my blog as I seem to have got out of the blogging habit, however, thought I would share my latest creation.  I find it so hard to make time these days for card making with general life taking over so much but needed a card for a work colleague of mine who has recently had an operation.



I've used a Mo Manning image which I've had for ages but had never used before and coloured with Promarkers.  Sentiment is from Paper Smooches and various papers are from my stash as are the gems.  Punch and Paperclip are from SU.

Long Time, No See

It's been such a long time since I last posted on here but trying hard to get back into the habit.

I haven't made a card in a long while, instead I've been trying to organise and catalogue my stamp collection and other craft items and I'm slowly (very slowly!) getting through it!

One of my clients recently became a Granny for the first time and I wanted to make her a special card so here it is…


I've used my favourite baby image - Baby Hammock by Penny Black coloured with Copics and Promarkers with a bit of Glamour Dust for sparkle.  Papers are Magnolia, stitched around the edges and finished off with some flowers (The Ribbon Girl), punched leaves (Martha Stewart), webbing (Bunny Zoe Crafts), Sparkly jewels (Stampin Up)and a Teddy Bear charm from my stash.  Sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.


This is the inside - not a good photo I know but for some unknown reason my camera was playing up and this was the best shot I could get!  Decorated with Magnolia papers, again stitched around the edges and then added a Paper Smooches sentiment to the plain white card together with a Penny Black Stickeroo and some doodling.
