First Somethings

Well the day has finally arrived.....it's the first challenge on Stamp Something and it's really quite exciting for me as this is my first go as a DT Member.....hope I don't disappoint! The theme this week is "Firsts" and decided on baby cards.....I'm a sucker for them and I find that if I make one for a girl, I just have to make another on a boy theme so here are my contributions.....




This is another first for me.....my first buckle card! The stamp is Baby Tingla from Magnolia, coloured with Prismas and Sansodor with Glamour Dust added to her wings. She was then cut out and fixed onto the buckle. Papers are from the Sugar Dumpling collection at Blonde Moments layered with mirricard and Bazzill c.s. Sugar and Spice sentiment is computer generated and layered onto same c.s. with some doodling, flower is from W.H. Smith with pearl brad from Papermania.




My second card was to show a clean and simple layout. I got the idea for this card from my friend Jose who doesn't have a blog even though I keep nagging her to start one!! The image is from Elzybells and his nappy has been coloured with Brushables and he has been layered onto Bazzill c.s. using the small rectangle Nestabilities set. The sentiment is part of the Just Hatched set from Papertrey Ink. Background has been made using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder and more blue Bazzill c.s. Grosgrain ribbon is Dovecraft, flower is from Sir Stampalot and brad is Papermania.


Well, my baby is six today....I just can't believe it!.....where has the time gone?! so have got plenty to organise before he gets home from school....yes, it's the big reveal of his bedroom and I can't wait to see his reaction!!

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.

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.
