A Recipe for Stamp Something

This week's challenge on Stamp Something is "Recipes" so, because I had a little gift to give to a friend and needed a card to go with it, I came up with this.

Now you're probably thinking "what's that got to do with a recipe?", however, added a little something inside the card......

I got the idea for the recipe from a card I saw on Deb's blog over Christmas - she is such a talented lady and produces fabulous cards.....well worth a visit. Also, I've seen so many beautiful cards where the girls are now decorating the insides, so I thought I would combine the two.

The image is Whiff of Joy, Willow with Cocoa, or coffee in this case!! I've coloured her with Promarkers and then just doodled around the edges. Papers are My Minds Eye and brown c.s. is Bazzill. Distressed the edges of the paper and then stitched them onto the card. Sentiment is MFT as are the coffee beans on the inside of the card. Flowers are all from my stash and for the centres, I have used spacers and Papermania sticky gems. The recipe is computer generated.

For the gift, I've just used a clear bag, made a little tray for the mug to sit in from Bazzill c.s. and the SU scallop edge punch, tied it with some yummy brown ribbon from Hobbycraft, then fixed the little embellishment onto the ribbon.

The back of the flower is cut using the SU scallop punch and just added a flower and brad from my stash together with a metal washer from Making Memories.

Blimey, that went on a bit!!! Anyway, pop on over and take a look at the fabulous work my fellow DT Members have done and have a go yourself....there's some great candy up for grabs.

Great card Jo, love the idea. Sad how all these shops close down, I only heard about Craft Central earlier this week, my nearest one is about 15 miles away but used to visit fairly regularly :-(

Card Requests

Been quite busy recently trying to juggle work, home life and the card requests I have received.  This type of card has proved very popular so here are the ones I have made so far...still have a few more projects and cards to complete before I am able to start on my own!

The two 50 cards do look almost identical however, they are for twins!

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.

Birthday Wreath Card

Saw this design on one of AMD TV shows and fell in love with it immediately so set about making two different projects with the same design.
This is the first...

...a birthday card for a friend of mine.  I haven't quite finished the other project so I will show that another day.
