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!

Family Wreath Frame

Here's the second project I made using the wreath design.

A box frame for my home...just changed the sentiment!

Pink Reindeer Christmas Card

Here's another design for a Christmas Card...this time using a more contemporary twist...just can't keep away from pink!

Large Robin Christmas Card

I've been trying out some different designs for the large Christmas cards I make and this first one is more traditional with the colours and the robin.

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.

Small Reindeer Bauble

I've been busy making a mess all weekend trying out different types of Christmas cards and other projects so thought I would share a quick project.

This bauble is smaller than the ones I made a little while ago - it will fit on a Christmas Tree whereas the other ones were for room decorations.
Hoping to have a few more projects to share with you very soon.

Mixed Media

This is my first proper attempt at mixed media using the Eileen Hull journal die.  Followed a great tutorial from Kat Crane at DecoArt and enjoyed every minute of it!  Just have to find time to finish the inside.

Sapphire Wedding Anniversary

Another request from a friend for her parents' wedding anniversary...

More of the Same!

Another card completed for a friend of a friend...exactly the same as before but this one has been personalised for a 60th birthday.

100th Birthday

Another request to make one of my cards but this time for a 100th Birthday - wow! what an achievement!

Really itching to start my Journal but still another three of these cards to make!

Another Wedding Card

I recently had another request for a wedding card, this time in the AMD style and here's the result...

Two more requests to (hopefully) complete this weekend in this style for some special occasions...just waiting on an order of supplies to arrive.

Whimsical Birds

Recently had a play with these Whimsical Birds from Tando.  Absolutely love them because I can put all my amusing sentiments with them.  Used the smaller ones for cards and the larger ones for tags.  They're made of high quality chipboard which, once painted, actually feels like MDF.  Thinking of turning the tags into fridge magnets.

Wedding Wishes

A friend of mine recently asked me to make her a wedding card so chose a design I've used before but with a different image from LOTV.

Festive Baubles

This is an idea from Anna Marie Designs which I saw demonstrated recently and fell in love with them immediately.  They are quite a large bauble, too large for a tree, but intend to hang them in my house for Christmas.

At the moment, they are balanced on vases, awaiting the right size twine to hang them with!

Turning Glass into Stone!

I've been having a play with some Viva products after seeing a demonstration from Anna Marie.  I started with the napkin ring in case it went horribly wrong as this was the inside of a toilet roll(!) and then progressed onto the vases and tea light holders which were all plain glass when I started.

This tea light holder was just me doodling with one of the products and then using a ceramic effect over the top.

This one was just using chalky paint, however, when I put the heart on I had messy fingers and smudged the tea light holder with the darker paint so had to paint a (wobbly) line around the top!

More Baby Cards!

A couple more baby cards, very similar in layout and colour to the last two but used a different stamp and these cards only measure 4" square so would make a lovely gift card.

Playing with Backgrounds

Another card I saw demonstrated and loved how it was different from the normal Christmas cards so needless to say, I had a go and then got a bit carried away and did some other non-Christmassy cards!

Hey Baby!

Still on my quest to boost the contents of my card box and clear the craft recordings on my TV so here's the next couple of themed this time with a layout from Katie Skilton of Sizzix.

Fly Away Peter...

More quick and simple cards and more batch making.  Saw this card on a TV show with Katie Skilton of Sizzix so just added some scraps of pretty paper and different sentiments and voila!
