Just popping in to share a few recent requested card makes for a friend.
The next couple of cards seem to be frequent repeats!
I did consider not sharing even though they are new makes they are layouts I have used many times before! Funny I don’t really like mass producing – made 10 of one card as an invitation once and that was a struggle! However going back to making a card that seemed to work doesn’t seem to be an issue! Especially if it is for a friend and I can show them a pic before I start.
Do you ever go back and make a card again?
Sadly we were in need of a sympathy card this week.
Once again I have gone for simple white die cuts with liquid pearl centres and a simple sentiment from Avery Elle – stamp and die cut.
I have an outrageously large pile of NBUS to play with before more new play things arrive 🙂 My dilema what to play with first!
In the meantime I plan to do a little reading – Bridgerton the Duke and I – while I continue knitting a Weir for myself.
I began by using embossing paste coloured with re-inker and circle stencil. Once dry I cut to desired size for my card front and mounted on cs of the same colour. I used my large letters and number to die cut HB2U (Happy Birthday to You) in silver foil. I then embossed those with a Kaisercraft embossing folder and added them to my card base with foam tabs.
Excluding the drying time this was a pretty quick and easy card and I think great for a boy/young male adult. Mr M (20) did confirm he would be happy to give to one of his mates for an upcoming birthday.
Hope to see you in the challenge. Remember no stamps!
I free hand drew the hair and the scar before cutting out. I used SU Celebrate today for the “happy” and Number of Years for the “st”. The die cut numbers are from Papersmooches popped up with foam tabs. The glasses were made with circle punches and a strip of cs.
And for another 21st
A quick and easy card along with a personalised envelope. The envelope was large enough for the personalised luggage tag and gift card and the card. I CASed the envelope from here
And my last share for today is Ms A’s request. Ms A chose all the elements including the card base. For my regular readers you wont be surprised she was very specific about what colour papers had to go where!
When I posted yesterday I realised I had a few other creations I hadn’t shared. So here they are.
A recent 21st card for a Tigers fan
I used My Cute Stamps circus animals and SSS stitched circles dies along with SU Large numbers.
A planter box for a another significant birthday – this time for one of my walking/book club friends who happens to love gardening.
I used Bronwyn Eastley’s pattern here along with various SU stamps and dies.
A Unicorn card – a special request.
This time I used Jane’s Doodles and SU Beautiful Bouquet stamps & dies.
A little error here the kiddos also requested a unicorn card for this girl last year for her birthday and you guessed correct I used Jane’s Doodles Unicorn stamp set for the same girl’s card last year. (Insert embarassed face). When I looked back at last years card it only had one unicorn so hopefully significantly different. Needless to say next year I’ll either have to invest in a new unicorn stamp set or make another style of card.
Lastly an update on my Bernate Hi Lo Jumper.
Almost finished the front!
I have another request from the family and a pile of mending so I will get on with that in the coming days.
