I've got started with my Christmas cards at last ...... couldn't get my mojo working!
This one i used deep red stardream card from Pink Frog ...i love this card and always stock up when i go to a craft fair and they are there. I used a "Stampin Up" punch for the baubles with card from "the Christmas Glitter matstack from DCWV. ...the message was from "Stampin Up" I have made a batch of these cards, which has helped to fill my box up.
I have got to thank my friend Lyn for the idea because, as i said befor my MOJO has gone walk about :-(
This card was made for my mam, she loves robins! Its made from a Craftsuprint sheet and is glittered with both Silver & Gold Glamour dust and the circle is decoupaged aswell as the robin.
These two cards were made from downloads from the Clipart Fairy, i have addes Glamour dust to the images to give them more sparkle.
I made this card for my Great Nephews George William's 1st Christmas. I used the Forever Friends CD!
Hi everybody, i have made this card for my niece who will be 21 next week and is at university. I had to make sure it was made in good time (I'm usually making at last min ) as her parents are going to Manchester to celebrate with her next week and i will be on holiday from Monday. I was pleased with finished result but will let you all be the judge of that :-) !
I made this card for a friends Silver Wedding Anniversary. I used a Nestabilities die for the card shape and the flowers were made with Marianne D Creatables Ribbon Flora#3. with a diamontie brad in the centre.
I have 6 sisters so they keep me going with Birthday cards :-) this is a new template i have tried out and loved it, i think i will be making more of these cards. Got to say my sis loved it too! I made one for another sis a few weeks ago and used the same image (different card design) she liked it then so it wasn't hard to think of what to do for this one.
Hi everybody, this is a card i made for a friends birthday a few weeks ago !
This images is a Penny Black stamp which is very versatile and useful for all occasions.The side strip was cut with a Martha Stewart punch.
I was asked to make two cards for a Ruby Wedding Anniversary. One of them wanted yellow roses on it (if possible) well i didn't want to disappoint ...would you ? :-) apparently the bride had them in her bouquet ...
I came up with the idea to add some gold chiffon roses from Meiflower a computer generated message and some small ruby heart gems. The silver leaves were made with a Mariann die. The heart shapes were made with white glitter card but it hasn't shown up in the pic which is a shame because it was lovely.
I have used the same heart cutting dies on the second card but the centre red heart has been cuttlebugged, i used a computer generated message and added some gems and a flower decoration. The fancy strip across the front was made with a Martha Stewart punch, the idea for the strip came from Val ... (i added a ribbon) hope you don't mind Val :-)!
Another card for a friend .... she loves her tea from a nice cup (not a pot) so i thought she would like this decoupage image! I love it too ..... i think its nice and clean looking, it reminds me of when my grandma used to set the table for tea, i still love a cloth on the table :-)
I've put diamontise inside the flower heads and round the tablecloth and a little flower in the corner.
I forgot i had made this card a few weeks ago but didn't post it untill after my friends birthday. I think it was a Pennyblack stamp i used mounted it and tied a chiffon ribbon round which dressed it up a bit, the cut out down the side was made with a Martha Stewart punch.
Its been a couple of months since i've added anything to my blog, sorry about that .... i know i'm a bad blogger!
This is a few cards that i've made recently.........
First one is a card i made for my nice who passed her driving test .....
The next two card i made for two of my nieces who where 21 years old in Aug, they are twin so it was a very lively party ! The cards depict their own pastimes and paths in life..... Anna-Marie loves Photography and hopes to travel when she has saved enough money to do so. They both love horses and music but Sarah-Louise has been attending an agricultural college and hopes to work with horses as a profession.
This is a card i made for our Son, i think he will like it as he loves playing his guitar.
The card is black and biege, the image came from a pre cut sheet (don't know the make ) it has a strip up the side that says "have a rocking birthday". Sorry the pic not very good ...too much light i think ! I need to get a new camera because i have lost mine and had to take this with my mobile which isn't very good. The word "SON" was cut with my new Cricut which i have fell in love with .. lol!!
Hi everybody, why is it when i get asked to make a card do i spend so much thinking time about what the recipient will like and disregard each idea i come up with until its ..."right i must get this card done" as i am running out of time!
I was asked by my MIL to make a "Diamond Wedding Anniversary" card for my sis-in-law's parents and after thinking all week.."what am i going to do....what am i going to do" i set too last night and came up with a beautiful card which i am proud of and didn't really want to hand over ..lol ! Well i'll let you judge for yourself so here it is.
I used a computer generated message and just a simple band across the middle with some really elegant paper on top of a band of silver mirri card punched along the edge with a Friskers edge punch ... it's a shame you can't see the paper to its full effect as its silver embossed! I added a ribbon with a diamante brad in the centre and some up above.
Hope you also like it ... i would love to know what you think.
ps... ribbon is cut better than it looks on the pic !!
Hi everybody, I have made these two cards with my digital program, they were made for my two niece's (who are twins) for their 21st birthdays. The first one for Sarah-Louise shows her sitting on the horse (i decoupages her three times) she is studying "dressage with horses" at agricultural college and hopes to become a vet!
Second one is for her sister Anna-Marie who loves photagraphy, the pic on the card are personal to her! The theme was supposed to be an airmail letter as she would like to travel but i had to cut the red and blue cheverons from the edge that is on airmail letters as it didn't look right on the backing papers i was using.
I was asked by a friend to make a Ruby Wedding card from the design of a card i made in June ...i used a red ribbon instead of the white one on the previous and silver behind the heart to make it stand out more.
Hello everybody, sorry its been a while since i shared a card with you. This one is being entered in the Crafters ReUnitedforum "July Inspirationals challenge" its navy rather than black. I made it for a friends birthday and thought it would fit the profile perfectly for the challenge.
Hi everybody got some different cards to show you ......stamping ones !
I've been so busy this last couple of weeks with family cards most of which didn't get photagraphed ....just forget sometimes, as i meet myself coming back ---uh !!
A friend who is a "Stampin Up" rep did a workshop for us at another friends house, these are the cards we made.
First one we used a corner stamp to stamp across the paper turning it repeatedly ...loved the effect !
Second one we made the paper across the centre by stamping and drunging ...... loved doing that !
I met up with a few friends for a day of crafting and this is what we made ......
Tall one we used a simple cuttlebug folder and a few pearls. The second one we used a cuttlebug folder for the strip and a nestability heart die and cuttlebuged the centre.
Hi Everybody, I'm trying hard to post regularly. I made this card a few weeks ago at a craft group but just finished it off. I have lots of half finished projects so i have promised myself to finish at least one each week, more if i don't have any others to make.
Hi everybody, I told you i had been working hard --three cards in a row today --- lol !
This card was made from the "Wine Buffs! CD --- i think its a real fun CD and have used a few images from it but sometimes forget to photograph them -- :- (
I made this card last week for my sister's birthday, its from the Card Creations CD "Never too Old". My sister is keen on running and keeping fit so i thought it was a very good "send-up" of her --lol !! I think she saw the fun side of it- hehe!
Hello everybody. I've been quite busy this week --- lots of family and friends birthdays. I made this one for a dear friends 50th birthday, it was a bit of a challenge as she is a very competent card maker so i didn't want to disappoint her.
Hope you like it!
Sorry this is a bit late but forgot to photograph this card before it was sent, i have just caught up with it when i visited Mam ! --lol !!
The backing paper came from my stash, i used cuttlebug folder Swiss Dots to emboss top section and a Martha Stewart punch for the corners and middle border. The flower came from a card pack i bought from Create and Craft a couple of years ago and was mounted onto a nestabillity backing topper.
