I have created a little card using my Lifestyle crafts nesting lace squares. I have adhered the main piece to a note card 7.5 cm x 7.5 cm.
To create the front of my card I used brand new (as I only picked them up from the post box Saturday!) SU Botanical Tags die along with angled tag punch, bird builder punch and sentiment from mini treat bag thinlits.  The pattern paper is old SU have a cuppa and other papers are crushed curry, old olive and chocolate chip. Various pieces were popped up with foam tabs.

Challenge#80: Flowers and more flowers
TWIST Bling it up! here
Remember there is a prize
I have tried to bling up my floral cards.
In a fruitless attempt to make a dent in my pattern paper I have used 2 pieces to create 2 cards.  I blinged them up with sequins, gold foil paper and glittery die cuts.
Some pretty pattern paper from Inspired by Stamping along with gold foil die cut sentiment from Elizabeth craft designs and a few sequins.  Today would have been my Gran’s birthday.  I think she would have liked this card.  She loved her flowers and butterflies (there is one in the top corner).

This one uses some vintage paper from MME Miss Caroline 6×6 paper pad.  There is a sentiment on the paper “start everyday with a smile”.  I added die cut flower and leaves (freeby with a magazine) and sequins.  I added kindy glitz first but wasn’t overally happy with the result so glued sequins on top!

Hope you find some time to join the challenge I’m sure you have some flowers and bling in your stash!

Until next time

Cheers

Unstampabelles #78:April – Vellum or Acetate here
Prize
New KaiserCraft EF
I used some cardstock and patterned paper from my stash to make the card base, mounts, flower stems and flower heads.  The jar is die cut from vellum.  The sentiment is from a new (for me) Sizzix die set.  I have a number of new goodies I have acquired over the last few months needing some love!
I have added liquid pearls to the centre of some of the flower heads.
and now for my new view/item
Hubby has been away on a school trip for the last 3 weeks and whilst he was away I took the opportunity to partially empty my craft room and reorganise. I found this rack on a recent trip to Ballarat.
I hope you find some time to join us at Unstampabelles this month.
Cheers

Zentangle Birthday…

Hello

Today I am sharing a card I made for Ms A’s 13th birthday last week.   It is also my card for the current challenge at Unstampabelles here

This one was a little tricky to take a pic of.

I used a page from a colouring book and die cut “happy”, “13” and “birthday” from it and then inlaid the same die cuts with glitter paper.

Ms A likes to colour so I thought this was a great idea for her card.

This one was new for me.  We had a memento book.  I remember signing keys and books at 18th’s and 21st’s but a 13th was a first.  Ms S and Ms A decorated this journal book.

I had to share the zentangle.

This is a pic of the cake I made for her party Saturday night.

Hope to see you in the challenge.

Thanks for stopping

Cheers

A few more recent birthday creations…

Hello

Popping in to share a couple of recent birthday cards.

This first one was for a friend of Mr M’s.  The colours and flowers were as requested.  Funny story Ms E went to the same party and took a card from my stash.  So the birthday girl got 2 totally different cards from our family.

One of the girls netball team mates turns 30 on 31st.  This year she decided to have a party early – don’t know why people don’t want to celebrate her birthday on the 31st?!! Anyway the focus was all on her last week.  I went to the party along with Ms E and Ms S and had a good night and my first experience of a photo booth.  This was rather funny cause I can’t see much without my glasses so if you can imagine how the quick prop changes and no glasses combo turned out.  This lady likes a drink or two this was the only set I could find in my stash with a glass.  I don’t particularly think she is beach loving but she is an Aussie summer babe.  I have since ordered a new stamp set for my stash – well there was obviously a gap in my collection!

Thanks for stopping

Cheers
