Catching Up!

I haven't been on my Blog for a while so thought I'd better catch up with some cards I've made recently.

The first three were all for the same person who moved house, had a birthday and became a Granny - all in the space of a week!

I've used a Whipper Snapper stamp for the first card which I have paper pieced and used PM's.  Used various papers for the background and a bunting die plus a Pink Petticoat sentiment which has been cut out using a Spellbinders die.





This second card used a LOTV image from their Taster Packs - these are ideal for quick cards as they are already coloured! Used a Sue Wilson embossing folder for the background, SU card stock and various dies plus a couple of embellishments.




This baby card was another quick card using a topper which I seem to have had for ages, a Spellbinders die, a cuttlebug embossing strip and a small piece of ribbon.



Finally, I wanted to make a special card for my Sister's birthday and after being confined to bed last weekend, it gave me the perfect excuse to watch the very talented Sue Wilson on Create & Craft.  This card is her design apart from the fact that she used a different die for the centre of the card and I also used a Pink Petticoat sentiment.  Unfortunately, the photo doesn't do it justice - it's just so pretty in real life!

A Special 60th

My lovely Sister is celebrating her 60th birthday today so had to make her a special card.  Her gift from us was money so also wanted to dress it up a little so made a Tim Holtz gift card holder to put the money in and attached it to the MDF 60.






The bag was a little rushed to say the least!

A Little Bit Cheeky!

I saw this stamp set from Indigo Blu and knew I had to have it as I have too many of those friends and family who need to have a slightly naughty but funny card.


I made this card for my friend who has the same sense of humour as me!  Very plain and simple and easy to make...I think the sentiment says it all lol!

AMD Samples - Sending You Birthday Blooms

I have another sample to show today from the Create and Craft TV shows - this time a blue one!

I started with a  5" x 7" scalloped card base and chose three sheets of paper from the blue Garden Blooms pad which I then tore and distressed the edges, inking with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink (my favourite!) and then layering them onto a piece of pastel blue double glitz card which had been cut to size with the bottom corners rounded.  
I then took one of the blue postcards and stamped the sentiment in blue on it and of course, inked and shaped the edges!  I then applied Inka Gold to one of the frames from the Shadowbox Kit and glued it over the sentiment.
I then proceeded to arrange a selection of flowers and leaves on top of some natural fibre on the top of the card and also inserted a cheeky little heart!  I dabbed on glue gel to the flowers, leaves and heart and edges of the card and covered with Ice Crystals.
To finish, I cut one of the blue inserts down to size for the inside o…
