A little bird...

Another one using the Sizzix birdcage and K&Co papers!  
Made for a friends birthday!

The flower is a Sizzex die layerd up and the doily is a spellbinders die.  All edged with a Tim Holtz ink pad brushed corduroy.  The Happy Birthday stamp is from a Hobbycraft set and the banner is from the same K&Co pad as the papers (Chocolate Neopolitan).  The gold card stock and the card was purchased from Create and Craft.

Spent the afternoon in a pub garden, finding it hard to craft when the sun shines!

Happy Sunday All!

Yellow Boutique...2!

I liked the last one so much when I had to make an A4 card for a lovely colleague at work (I have to say that as she sits next to me and I have to talk to her all day!!!) I used the same colours but different papers and embellishments!

Same papers as before (see my previous blog post yellow boutique for info) as well as the beige patterned paper from the same gorjuss pack as the striped paper and the mini rosette is from a Tim Holtz die.

Now I'm off to go and make something that has no yellow in it!

Yellow Boutique...

For Chloe...

I purchased the Kanban dress stamps and Tim Holtz embossing folder at the same time, I knew they would make a great combo!  I coloured the dress in a few colours with promarkers but the yellow was definitely the favorite for me! The Shakespeare words are a stamp I purchased at a may day fair for £1 and the best wishes is from a set from Hobbycraft.  The roses I made myself from black card and the left over We Are Memory Keepers yellow paper.  The stripe paper is from the 12x12 gorjuss packs and the Martha Stewart punch was out again for the black trellis border for more texture.  I used spellbinders for the ovals and the button is from a huge Hobbycraft pack.  The bakers twine is Tim Holtz again, this is my new favorite way of attaching buttons! The frame and corners are cut out from a sheet in the gorjuss pack.

I liked this so much I made a variation on an A4 sized version given yesterday so coming next!

Father's Day...Part 2!

For my father in law!
One in a million, takes my daughter to school and looks after my 3 year old 3 days a week!

Another simple card really, the topper and papers were from the men's kit I got from create and craft for just the postage and the football paper is from a papermania kit I think from a few years ago.  The Father's day banner was created in a word doc and the rosette from the tim holtz die.  All mounted on gold textured cardstock again from create and craft.  All edged with ink, as always.

I hope that gave some inspiration for some mens cards, the banner can always just be changed to happy birthday!

Father's Day...

This is for my dad...

He had some great tools I could "borrow" for my 1st nice car that I actually looked after. Thanks Dad!

This is him mucking about at littlehampton with me and my now 7 year old daughter!

The brick embossing folder and topper were from my local craft shop and were not branded but thought I would share the idea anyway!  I printed out the happy fathers day onto plain paper made up just in a word doc. The rosette is a tim holtz die with a no1 from the male anita's range I think.  The stripey paper is from create and craft male kit which I only had to pay the postage for and the topper is backed by spellbinders! 
i just added some card candi to finish it off.

Another father's day card next time, my father in law so a sports theme!

Turning 7....

I starting making this for my daughter from her "Grampy" but it got lost under piles of paper and I forgot about it!  Finished it off and gave to her best friend instead so it went to a good home!

Just used some lovely papers and cut using my silhouette.  The banner is hand cut and the pole is a tube of pink card.  The flowery paper is from QVC, the pinks from create and craft and the background paper is from Hobbycraft.  I inked around the edges and just added bling!  

Just a quick blog as I didn't manage it this week, but uploading more now ready for this week!
