Robin Cards

Morning, happy Tuesday. I've been on a bit of a non-CAS card making session as my mum has asked for a rather large order of Christmas cards.



The image is from Woodware and the papers are from LOTV. I coloured the robin using Distress ink as watercolours- it was quick and gives a lovely soft look. To finish I dded some Distress Stickles  for a snowy/icey look.


Today I'm hoping to get my craft room sorted out after my Christmas card making session and get back to some CAS crafting.

Berry Shades

Morning, I know I've not been around much lately which is odd considering I'm on my summer hols from school and I should have loads of time on my hands. unfortunately I'm still not having the best of times with my health amongst other things. Anyway, if you're reading this then I'd like to say THANK YOU for sticking with me- hopeful I'll be back on form sometime soon. I am still crafting but it's the blogging side I'm struggling with :-(




So, as I'm on my own this morning I thought I'd take the opportunity to play along with today's Less Is More challenge where the theme is "Berry Shades'. For my card I've decided to go with Raspberry and Strawberry colours to ink up th "Lotus Blossom" set from Stampin Up.

Happy Birthday Flowers

Morning, one week into the summer hols and I've been relaxing (a lot) and doing a little bit of crafting. I've made quite a few Christmas Cards for my mum and this birthday card for my husband's Auntie- it's her birthday next week.


I've tried no-line colouring with Zig Real Colour watercolour brush pens. The stamps are from Paper Smooches . I started with the birthday banner form the "Blissful Banners"set and then after masking it I added the flower bouquets from "Blossoming Buds". I stamped the flowers in a real light coloured Memento ink so that the outline blending into the watercoloring. 


To finish I cut the image using a circle die, layered it onto a fancy circle and finally some backing paper. The flowers were embellished with gems, pearls and some Stickles glitter glue.

I'm going to enter this into this weeks Paper Smooches Sparks challenge where the theme is "anything goes".

Hooray!

 Morning, here's a card that I was asked to make. I've used the fab shaker dies from Clearly Besotted along with some 12x12 DP which I'm desperately trying to work my way through!


And here's a little gift box made with the coordinating die.

Just a note book

Morning, just popping in with a notebook I've covered- I found the blank kraft notebooks in Home Bargains and I thought they'd make nice little gifts.

Thanks teacher

Morning, it's that time of year when I need to make lots of thank you cards for all my colleagues and here's one I made using some Clearly Besotted products.


I love how the embossing turned out on this card, I actually made my my own embossing stencil by repeatedly cutting the "thanks" die into a sheet of card then I ran it through my Big Shot with the card base and a rubber embossing mat.
