My First Christmas Card!

I saw this card demonstrated by Sue Wilson last year and have only just got around to having a go!


I'm not completely happy with the colour of the holly as I feel it is a little too bright.

More of the Same!

After making the 1st Birthday card the other day, thought I would use up the remainder of the Forever Friends decoupage pad with some quick, clean and simple cards.

The first one is using the reverse/pyramid style instead of the usual decoupage, whilst the second and third are the traditional decoupage.

Pretty, Pretty!

More cards using the designs of AMD...love her work!  The first was for my SIL's special birthday and measures 12" x 6", the other two are smaller (8" x 8".




Noah is 1

A very clean and simple card for me using a decoupage set I had sitting in my drawer from ages ago!


Introducing the Skulls!

Loving these skulls from Stamp Addicts...they come will plenty of add ons to after seeing a similar design, decided this one would be ideal for a wedding anniversary!



I made the following two for male cards and had a play with Pixie Powders and Alcohol Inks for the backgrounds.

...and another one!

These type of cards are proving very popular with friends and family so this time, was asking to make a personalised one for a Ruby Wedding Anniversary.

One I Forgot!

Another AMD card which I forgot to load on here…this time it's a birthday card for one of my clients.






Wedding Card Requests!

Since making the larger cards with the AMD designs, I have received a few requests from friends to make some wedding cards. This first one was for a personalised card so used some MDF bunting to add the names.  Must admit, I was beginning to wish the Bride had a shorter Christian name when I was attempting to fit them on!




This is a closer look at the heart...



This second card didn't require any personalisation so just added a wedding sentiment from Creative Expressions.

Happy Birthday Sandra!

Still enjoying making AMD projects and this is the latest I have made for my friend who is celebrating her birthday.  MDF hanging heart and a card.


 This second picture shows the dimension of the decoration but is nowhere near to showing the sparkle!

90!

One of my gentlemen clients will reach the grand old age of 90 this week so needed to make a card for him.  Saw this design on Create & Craft last year by the talented Julie Hickey for a Christmas card so thought I would adapt it to a masculine birthday card.


Used the "Julie Loves" numeric stamps with Memento coloured inks and added some Glossy Accents to the red 90 to give it a lift.  Added a sentiment from Darkroom Door and a squiggle across the top to balance out the card.

I haven't shown it in the photograph, but used a Penny Black stamp on the inside with one of my favourite quotes " How old would you be if you didn't know how old you were?".

Ghetto Rat

Here's a card I made for Sam's 14th birthday - Happy Birthday Sammy!




The stamps are from Bee Crafty and the background was made by blending Distress Inks.  The "U" in the U Rock was a Tim Holtz die cut which I double embossed to give a shiny effect, and the Happy Birthday sentiment was from Magnolia. Sam's reaction to his card - "That's sick Mum!" which according to will.i.am, is a compliment!
