Mother's Day

Here is the 'card' that I have made for my mom this year. I say 'card' as it's actually a word book. This is the front view (obviously). It has a 3D flower fairy on the front from the Crafter's Companion CD and the pages are made from the Funky Daze CD. I then mounted them onto gold mirri and cut round them........what a faff! I sparkled her wings and some of the petals with some iridescent glitter glue.

Page 2 has the first half of the verse on and a few sparkly peel off butterflies stuck onto acetate and cut out.
The final page has the remainder of the verse and a rose also from the CC CD.

The only thing I would change IF I did another, would be the verse. It needs to be bigger (and straighter as my hubby pointed out) as it looks a bit lost.
Hope you like it. xx

Apologies for the quality of this photo. I made this for our good friend's niece's birth. The stamp is one from Lilac Lemon Designs and the backing is printed onto pale pink pearlescent card from a Joanna Sheen CD, The oval is a Keepsake board shape. I was having trouble finding the right pink for rocking horse, so I used a Briliance inkpad (orchid, I think) and then a very pale pink two tone moonglow embossing powder from Lindy's Stamp Gang.

No new stuff!

Well, I spent the whole of yesterday (and I do mean the whole of yesterday) making mother's day cards, anniversary cards and gold cards for a swap. Of course, none of them have been scanned in order for me to upload them here.....yet!! Came down out of the loft and hubby looked at me like I had grown another head. It's taken the kids 24hrs to remember who I am, lmao! I'll upload them later in the week.

Kieran's Birthday

I was so blessed to spend my 32nd birthday in hospital giving birth to my second son, Kieran. Here are the 2 birthday cards that we gave to him for his first birthday.

I made this card for a completely unrelated project but Lewis loved it so much he wanted to send it to Kieran for his birthday. Who was I to deny him....especially when it saved me making another, lol.

This one is called a stubby diamond. I made it using the Rag Doll Boy stamp from the Sheena Douglass Bear-i-ations collection. I love these stamps, there is such a variety of clothing options including the Beatles and Elvis!!!!

Card for Mom

I made this card for my mom for her birthday in January. It's using 2 of my favourite stamps from my Art Nouveau collection and is simply watercoloured using pencils. The gold layering has been done using the Keepsake majestic board.
Hi and welcome to my blog. Bear with me, this is my first attempt. I'll get the hang of it......... I'm sure.
