I know some of you might be a little wet! Hope you are managing Ok.
You are not seeing triple! I coloured a bunch of Jane’s doodles images a while ago with alcohol markers and made some into these cards. All the images are fussy cut and some are popped up with foam tape. The sentiment is from ABS. I have a few more cards, I will share another day!
I don’t often share personal stuff, for those who have been following me from the start of my blogging journey know I am a mum of 4. When I started this blog my children were in primary and high school. Well I now have no children at school! My youngest finished her year 12 exams about a week ago. She will be 18 soon! Next year we will have one at uni and one completing his masters (child #2). Children #1 & #3 have both finished their studies and are working successfully in their chosen fields.
I did finish this a few weeks ago however I didn’t get to meet the new member of the family until yesterday. Such a gorgeous looking bub she is too.
The quilt top is 5 1/4″ squares set in a pattern which creates diamonds. When I checked what the nursery decor was going to be I was informed “muted neutrals”. Um brown tones came to mind. Off I went fabric shopping – any excuse! I found the lovely rainbow print and chose two solids from the pattern.
The back is a simple print. I quilted around the blocks and on the diagonal on my domestic machine. I bound with the darker of the solids. Now after purchasing the fabric and I had begun construction my Ms 17 spotted a pic on instagram of the nursery and informed me there was a rainbow print on the wall in the same tones as the fabric. Whew!
Now I couldn’t give a present without a card. I stamped the onesie from TGF onto some pattern paper and fussy cut out, popped onto some white card stock and added to card base. The sentiment is from Jane’s Doodles The sky’s the limit. Love making personalised cards.
I have found myself with a little extra crafty time this week. That meant I could a) watch a youtube video or 2 b) actually follow through with one of those newly acquired crafty “must try” techniques that I plan to do however rarely complete!
Today I am back to share some more recent card makes. And I have used loads of NBUS stuff!
I’ll start with this new stencil from Stamplorations. I added punched flowers to her hair and finished with liquid pearls. I remember seeing one of the DT add flowers and loved the result so I’ve CASed it. I used my new SU brushes to – these are huge brushes compared to the ones I have been using!
This next one is a wee 3″x3″ card using Jane’s Doodles Wild. Coloured with alcohol markers. I can see this hippo becoming a fav! Oh and more sponging.
A couple of “Cute Fruit” cards. I used my SU Stamparatus which makes making more than one quick and easy! Again the smaller card is 3″ x 3″.
For these next two cards I have used Stamplorations Bloomfully Sparkle with PTI Tag it #3 followed by Stamplorations Bloombully Thankful with PTI Tag it #12. Both are again 3″ x 3″ coloured with alcohol markers.
And lastly another card using Jane’s Doodles to the moon. The small stars are from WPlus 9 Unforgetable and the tied string is from Uniko Garlands Galore. I CASed this card too from one I saw on pinterest.
