A few recent makes…

Hello – Oh dear time has got away from me once again!

Popping in today to share a few recent card makes.

First up my MIL celebrated a milestone birthday earlier this month.

Love the pop of red against the black and white.

Next up is a special request from a mum from school.

A personalised comfirmation card – I love that I can make cards like this. This one is a design/layout I have used a number of times. It just seems to work and this particular mum likes this layout.

Another personalised card, this time for a recent wedding a friend attended.

Again I have used these tiny punched flowers a number of times on cards, this time I used foil cardstock which IRL looked really shiny!

An Easter card requested by the same friend for her daughter.

A simply stenciled background and computer generated sentiment and popped up chicken, hand coloured and fussy cut.

And lastly the gift tags I made for my family’s Easter Treats.

A quick tag made using a set from Uniko.

Well that’s it for today. A big catch up.

Thanks for taking the time to stop

Until next time

Cheers

Time for a challenge or two…

Hello

I have had a crafty week! I spent yesterday at the very first Altenew Workshop in Australia with the lovely Tasnim (and her family) and Therese from lostinpaper. I got to meet the lovely warm and extremely friendly Therese in person after years of talking through forums and blogs.  I also meet in person the lovely Aileen from colourandsparkle for the first time and loads of other crafty people.  I’ll share more in a later post as the sets we used have not been released yet. Yes I have decided my cards are blog worthy after all.

Anyway on with what else I have been creating.  I received some new sets last week and inked them up straight away – a rare thing indeed!

I have also made a conscience decision to make the NBUS pile on my desk extinct! The first cards are from my NBUS stash.  I do shop at times faster than I can create – I know I am not alone here!

My first card is using Concord and 9th Happy Day set which I have had for a while I teamed this with sentiments from Your next Stamp What not sentiments 4.  I made two cards using this set.  The first I coloured with watercolour pencils and added highlights with markers and the second I coloured with alcohol markers.

The first one I am entering into the challenge at Double D here and Bizzy Bec’s anything goes here.

and the second card using alcohol markers.  I fussy cut the main image and popped up with foam tabs.

My parcel was from Jane’s Doodles.  Jane had generously offered a free mini cupcake stamp set with orders on the recent International Women’s day.  Here it is coloured with alcohol markers and a sentiment from Jane’s Birthday Wishes set.

I also inked up Jane’s Doodles Magnolia and Mother’s Day sets.

and my last card for today is a request.  For sometime now I have been making cards for mum I know who gives her daughter chick themed cards.  This one is for easter and uses SU Honeycomb Happiness and ABS Easter Chickadee coloured with watercolour pencils and markers.

I commend you for getting to the end of this post! Thanks for stopping by.

Until next time
