In The Wild Somethings!

It's Friday already which means it's time for the Stamp Something challenge! This week's theme is "In the Wild" and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with this one. It's Fathers' Day in the UK on 15 June and wanted to make a card for Tony from the boys. Even though he will be back in the UK for Fathers' Day, thought these stamps from High Hopes were very appropriate considering where he's been living for the last 15 months!












The Jungle background stamp, Walkabout Wally, and G'day sentiment are all from High Hopes. The jungle background has been coloured with Brushables and Wally has been coloured with Prismas and Sansodor. He was cut out and fixed to the card with foam pads. Used two shades of Bazzill c.s. and K & Co DP for the card base and "lifted" the smaller of the two squares with foam pads. Three brads from my stash were added below the image.

Sam has his Tae Kwon-do grading straight after school this afternoon so he's very excited about getting his next belt.....Lewis's grading isn't until Sunday so hopefully, that will mean less rushing about! Hope to catch up on my blog hopping tonight when we're all home and settled. Have a good weekend everyone and pop on over to Stamp Something because there's some fabulous candy on offer from the Guest Designer Laura!

Great card! Haven't seen any of those images before but brilliant for the wild Aussie theme.

Sounds like you enjoyed you're birthday and you've had a fab load of card and pressies. My humble card is winging over from France as I type (posted on your birthday which I realise isn't quite the idea - Sorry!) :)

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.







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.
