Anna's Blog Candy

Anna is offering some blog candy so thought I would have a go! You have to make a card to celebrate a special birthday and because it's my friend's 40th next week, came up with this one.


It's a similar layout to the 50th Birthday card I made recently. I used a Magnolia stamp and this is the first time I have had a go at paper piecing for her top, the rest of her is coloured with watercolours and Brushables with a little glitter dust for her wings. Cardstock is from Bazzill, paper is from Karen Foster, the sparkly brads are Papermania and the flowers are from Poppicrafts. This is a bit of a first for me cause I've got green in it!! Don't ask me why, but I'm really nervous about using the colour and therefore, tend to avoid it!!

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...



...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.



Christmas Scene Decoration

I saw this project designed by Anna Marie nearly a year ago and have been desperate to make it ever since and have just found the time.  It is a little time consuming as you have to wait for the different mediums to dry but I'm pleased with the end result (even if it did take me nearly an hour to work out how to make the gnome's hat!)
I added some craft lights which don't show so well in the beautiful sunshine we are having today but they do make the project look very special...such a nice finishing touch.
