I have made quite a few birthday cards for the shop recently, but I'm only getting round to putting them up on my blog now. This one was made using one of the LOTV art pad images and pink card and ribbon (Rose Red) from SU. The paper is from one of the Nitwits pads, also from LOTV. The pale pink 'dots' are 'card candy' by Craftwork cards. The sentiment stamp is from a retired SU set. I have roughly followed the layout on the Friday Sketch Challenge. I also will enter it into the CCT challenge as this week its 'Pretty Ribbons' and the Simon Says challenge - Anything Goes.
A quick anniversary card I made recently, using one of the LOTV die cut squares. The flowers and oval labels were made using punches and the hanging heart is a die cut. The red card and the little aqua buttons are from SU, as is the sentiment stamp. The paper is from a free pack that came with a magazine (supposed to be Christmas papers!) I will enter the Simon Says challenge as its 'Anything Goes' this week.
This is the wee card I made to let the ladies know that my needlework class was starting up again last night. The image was coloured with Promarkers. The polka dot paper is from SU (baked brown sugar) as is the ribbon (pretty in pink, now sadly discontinued). The doily, scissors, needle and thread are all die cuts. I am entering the Simply Magnolia challenge(use dies or punches), the Simon Says challenge (anything goes) and CCT challenge (pretty ribbons). The kraft card blank is from Anna Maria designs.
I'm back at last after a long break from blogging. Just a build up of 'stuff' that sometimes gets in the way of crafting - like redecorating, joinery work and getting back to school, with all of the preparation of schemes of work etc, that that entails! Anyhow, I have been making a little card to send out to my craft class ladies, to let them know the class will be starting again next week - I love Magnolia stamps and this one was just perfect, especially when used with the needle and thread and embroidery scissors dies. The pink card is a long overdue thank you card I need to send and it has been made with some of the new stamping up card and papers. The sides of the desk have gathered up lots of random bits and pieces - like the wee packs of calendar tabs I intend to use to make items for a Christmas craft fair in December and my new pack of SU markers.
