Birthday Card

Hello

A birthday card and gift tag to share today

????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

I used a stamp set I got free with a magazine stamped in Memento Tuxedo black and coloured with alcohol markers. The background paper and scallop border are from Kaisercraft Blae and Ivy pad. The flowers are die cut from Kaisercraft Bluebell cardstock with MFT rolled rose dies. The leaves are from SU little leaves. The tag was created by stamping Inspired by Stamping creative tags in SU Marina Mist and Certainly Celery inks. The other finishing touches are sequins and pearls from my stash and a little wink of stella.

???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

For the gift tag I used SU Morning Meadow stamped in Marina Mist and the label from label something along with the sentiment from ABS Sentimental Bluebells. I used Decorative label, modern label and scallop tag punches. The ribbon is from Kaisercraft.

With a Flourish or two…

Happy Sunday everyone.

Sharing a couple of cards.

This first card I made using Flourishes Kids at Play and Annabelle Stamps Sentimental Bluebells “Happy Birthday” Sentiment.

I started this card with a black card front. I cut the patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket Social Club just short of the amount I needed so I could trim and have my two black lines showing through. I then stamped my image using Versa fine Onyx Black on SBB kraft cardstock. I then used my distressing tool to sponge various inks onto my background. The sentiment was stamped onto a die cut scallop which I taped to the side of my image. Before I attached my image to the card front with foam tabs I felt it needed a little brightening up so I added some red cardstock from my scraps stash. I am linnking this upto the following challenges.

Keep those cogs turning…

I cut my card base on the diagonals as per the sketch. I then embossed two opposing panels and sanded slightly to reveal the core. I adhered these to my card front. I stamped my centre piece with Kaszazz Cog stamp set in various brown toned inks. I put this on some black cardstock and fixed to the front of my card. I made the sentiment panel using the sentiment from Annabelle Stamps Sentimental Bluebells. I have a friends birthday soon and want to give her a few cards – I’m a bit light on for male cards – I think this would suit the men in her life.

I’m linking this card upto these challenges.

I like how this all turned out. I have a few more things on my to do list so hopefully I’ll be back before the end of the week with some more to share.

Hope all good in your part of the world. Crazy weather here been so hot for days, now it has been raining here most of today – they have put out an alert for a local river.  I remember it flooding a few times before.  The only building that usually gets flooded is the pub on the river.

Thanks for taking a peek.

A few things to share…

Sorry for lack of posts this week. Been a bit busy. Can you believe this is the only thing I have made all week and it really took just a few minutes. IMG_2931

I made this card for a great friend who came to support me (and the other creative people) at my recent venture into craft markets. I used AnnaBelle stamps Sentimental Bluebells, SU ink and Fiskars punch along with AnnaBelle stamps Chilli digi paper.

Here are a few of the cards I made for the day.

The packs of cards weren’t popular (only sold one pack of 5) but the upside is I don’t have to make any to send to family and I have some left for teacher presents.  I also made some little gift tags which seemed to be more popular. My textiles also did well – so all in all a good experience.

If you have reached this far in this long make up post I’ll share a few things we have been doing this week. Now that 3 birthdays are over we have started Christmas shopping before Miss 8 finishes school next week. We have had 2 nights of school Christmas dance concerts (only had to add tinsel to a skirt for this one), week 2 of a new job, tonight we have an award ceremony for Mr 14  (not sure what for yet!) and also today Miss 17 had 4 wisdom teeth out.  I’m sure I’m not the only one at this time of the year very time poor.

What is everyone planning for Christmas? I have 25 people Christmas day and haven’t organised a thing yet.

If you have got this far – Thank you for hanging in there!

I’ll hopefully be back soon with somethings to share. I have received some nice new sets in the last few weeks and haven’t opened them yet.

Cheers
