Busy craft desk...

It has been a hot desk for a while!  I have made a card or cards everyday for the past few months but had a break the past few days!  Had fun with the kids and actually started a scrapbook page yesterday. Will finish that before bed tonight!

Here are some cards I made recently...    

                                                                Tim Holtz inspired...

For this card I used:
A selection of TH stamps and the Vintage Lace die for the trim.
Black archival ink pad.
Plain black, white and mirri card from Hobbycraft.
Lovingly Barogue (Couture creations) Embossing Folder.
Gems from Poundland.
White ribbon.
Foam Pads & wet glue.

For this card I used:
A selection of TH stamps and the congratulations and happy birthday ticket stamp were free from a magazine.
Blue bazzill cardstock.
White cardstock.
Silver cardstock.
Momento and ink it up ink pads.
Card candi.
Foam pads and tape runner.

The lighter blue on the stamped images is (I think a woodware) embossing powder.  They are really bright! I used a dryer ink pad on the car so I got a patchy effect.  I picked them up at a craft show at olympia years ago but have only just started using them!

This picture doesn't really do these justice, the colour's are like being back in a 90's rave again!!!

Will upload more later in the week, maybe the scrapbook page if I ever finish it!  Pics, layout and words all done but ran out of time!

It's been a while....

But I'm back!

What with the kids, work and my mum being in ill then in hospital life has been a bit chaotic for the past few months...I have still been making cards,  for work and family and preparing for my very first craft fair but not spending much time online!

So Just a quick pic update with two cards I made for a couple of lovely ladies at work...

For Fran....

I used a silhouette stars, pram shape and baby frame cut in pink bazzil cardstock & gingham paper all 12x12. Used 2 of each. Decorated it with peel offs, gems and card candi. Used a Martha Stewart punch for the borders and tied the lace ribbon and added a heart charm. All edged with pink ink.

                                                                           For Kalina...

Not sure of the sex of this baby so went for they yellow and green option.  Yellow bazzil this time and green check K & Co card.  Again the Martha Stewart punch, lace and heart charm and the baby tape was from a jar at the till in my local craft shop!  The stamp is from a Stamping Up baby set mounted on mirri.

It was nice to use all the same kind of materials and tools and get two different cards. Next challenge is to scale down the pram and design smaller cards for sale!

And now it's official I am to be a guest designer for

Exciting times! Please take a look, some lovely card idea's...

Will update with craft stall card pics at the weekend, let's hope it's busy and I sell out!

Till then
