Baby Shower

This is a card I made for a friends Baby Shower. As you may be able to tell she is expecting a little girl. I was so pleased when she told me that she was doing the nursery with an owl theme. I love the owl punch so it was a perfect opportunity to use it again. The umbrella is from the Res de Fluers stamp set. The colours used are Whispre White, Pretty in Pink and Melon Mambo.

Happy Mother's Day

This year I wanted to make something special for Mother's Day. Mum came up recently for Master 8's birthday and was such a help to me during her visit. It was also wonderful to just be able to catch up, as she is a 3 day drive away. I hope you have a wonderful day mum, wish we could be there with you. I had seen a cascading card before and wanted to see what I could do. Once I worked it all out it was easy to put together. The hardest thing was getting the embellishments right. I didn't want to go overboard.

Card; Poppy Parade, Peach Parfait, Calypso Coral,
Everyday Enchantment DSP
Boho Blossoms Punch, Bird Builder Punch
Beautiful Wings Embosslits
Window Sheets
Dazzling Diamonds
Adhesive sheets

The letters were cut with my cricut. I used the paper lace cartridge.

Fresh Vintage

These are just some quick cards I made up recently. The stamp set was from the latest sale-a-bration. I find black and white cards can be elegant and seem to fit in for any occassion, well except for a kid. They need colour.

Stamp; Fresh Vintage, Well Scripted
Card; Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink; Basic Black

Wonderful You

As soon as I saw this card I knew I had to case it. Mine is a bit different but I still love the original that the talented Ann Schach created. Apothecary Art would have to be one of my favourite stamp sets at the moment. I haven't stamped the middle yet as I'll wait until I need it. I wanted to use one of my other cards last week for Mothers Day but had already decorated the inside for a birthday.

Card; Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Pretty In Pink
Stamps; Apothecary Art, Loving Thoughts
Ink; Soft Suede, Early Espresso
Big Shop; Framelits Labels Collection, Beautiful Wings
Markers; Pretty In Pink, Certainly Celery
Ribbon; soft suede (now retired)
Pearls, Dimensioals

Everyday Enchantment

Everyday Enchantment DSP. I loved these papers. Unfortunately they are now gone as they were only here for the latest sale-a-bration, but I'm sure you will be seeing more from me as I still have 4 unopened packs.

Spiderman Punch

Master 8 has been invited to a Superhero Party. I looked everywhere for some ideas and then found a great punch art spiderman on Dairy Of Two Crafty Ladies I wish I found this for my son's Birthday, as he had a Super Squad theme.

Fifth Avenue

I was making some cards with a freind using the rose from the fifth avenue floral set. After helping to colour and cut all her roses I put my card aside to finish another time because I was over it by then. Not that I mind helping her beacause she is a great friend and we don't get top see each other nearly enough. It wasn't until the next day when I was trying to find my table again that I found some lillies that were coloured, cut and already covered in crystal effects.

Stamps; Fifth Avenue Floral, Bliss, Well Scripted
Card; Whisper White, Blushing Bride, Early Espresso
Ink; Blushing Bride, Espresso, Basic Black, So Saffron
Blender Pen
Crystal Effects, ribbon, Dazzling Diamonds, rhinstone buckel

Mum recently went to a wedding for a family friend so I wanted to make a special card. I had seen a beautiful card done with whisper white and handmade flowers. But of course mine didn't look like I it was supposed to so with same adjustments I came up with this. I wasn't 100% happy with it but it still looked ok. The picture below is the inside of the card. I embodded the rose with gold powder. I also stamped and embossed the envelope.
