Feels like it has been forever since my last post, but I have been making cards! My teenagers have been off school on study leave and have been using my craft room for revision, as the exams are now over and they are back to school today I finally got back in there to make a card.
Its a really quick and simple card from me. A birthday card for my Nephew who will be 14 this week.
Image was stamped and coloured with promarkers and backed onto a square card with papers from DCWV. A big peel off (forgot I still had them, lol) Hoping to get my mojo back and will start posting again soon.
Another quick post today. I have been asked by a friend to make a Birthday card for her Aunt so I decided to use a House Mouse stamp I have had about 8 years!
The image has been coloured with promarkers and backed onto a bright and cheery yellow background. Love the combination of yellow and brown. Papers are from my stash and the shimmer card is from DCWV. I used one of my large Martha Stewart punches and some yellow ribbon.
Another birthday coming up, so trying to keep ahead of all my cards. This card was made using a Magnolia cupcake stamp, backing papers are Stamping Up, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, and I used my Cricut, Storybook Cartridge, for the leaves and fancy shape for the topper. Some ribbon, bling and a stamped sentiment and its all done.
It is my niece's birthday the end of this month so I though I would make her birthday card today and see if I could enter any challenges at the same time.
I have used one of my many LOTV stamps, I really like this stamp but for some reason don't seem to use it very often. She has been coloured in using promarkers, my glitter card is from DCWV, but the backing papers I found in my stash and I have probably had them years. I used my Martha Stewart punch, pink satin ribbon, a bit of glitter and paper flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I live in Scotland with my husband, two teenage children, my adorable Cocker Spaniel and two young tabby cats.
I love card making, scrapbooking and ATC's, and enjoy taking part in lots of swaps on my favourite craft forums.
In creating this blog I hope to take part in lots of challenges, and be inspired in my cardmaking.
