Woody to the rescue

#Card #craft #cute #Disney

I love it when a plan comes together and i'm really happy with how this card turned out. The paper was sent in a craft swap ages ago and i never really had a clue what to do with it. But in a quest to try and challenge myself to use things that don't jump out at me/ have been in the craft room forever i thought i'd have a go with it! I then remembered the toy story stickers dh brought home for me once ( to craft with, not as a weird gift!). it was all coming together nicely. I decided to pick out the brown from woody and used some brown card to back onto. Then i raided my scraps and found a 'faded' brown spotty paper scrap and thought "perfect". I finished it off with a diecut tag with the birthday boys age on it. I attached it to some brown string that came on a top attached to it's tag.

It's a daisy and dandelion decoupage image, the papers are from a coordinating pad, i inked around edges with the wooden handle thing that i bought at a craft fair. I finished it off with a daisy and dandelion stamped greeting.

It must be love!

#wedding #Card #craft

The husband was asked to be best man for his best friend so i wanted to make quite a stylish card for them.
I embossed some glossy white card, layered it onto navy card (the main wedding colour). The image is just as it came, but layered onto  silver glitter card and then navy card again. I finished the card off with navy ribbon and a pearl heart.

Christmas at Easter

#Card #craft

Another Christmas card for you here.
All the ingredients are from dovecraft apart from the poundland ribbon, the glitter paper and the greeting. I think it might have looked better if i used blue glitter card, but never mind. I coloured the image with a selection of promarkers

The Jokers wild!

#Card #craft

The dreaded card for my friend who is an art teacher who hates glitter. I bought some DC toppers from a craft fair a couple of years ago and i'm slowly using them up on him! I 'borrowed' the joker card from my husbands poker cards and layered it behind the image, and inbetween them i had to use some black glitter card. I used some clare curd papers ( that pad will never be used up!) i then finished off the card with some poundland ribbon.

washing day

#Card #craft

I started typing that this was a quick card to make, but then remembered the evenings spent making up piles of decoupage! So i picked this topper and decided to stick with green as a the accent colour on the card. I layered the topper onto embossed white card, then relayered onto green and white card. I then found a daisy and green dp, that matched the embossed white card, added a greeting and die cut 2 corners. This is the 1st time i have used corner dies and i rather like them!

regal christmas

#Christmas #Card #craft

This is quite possibly the worst stamp to get a crisp image from, it looks fab but 5 attempts and it nearly went out the window! I embossed it with glitter embossing powder, layered it on black glitter card. i then layered some white card onto more glitter card, added a purple ribbon and coloured the ribbon on the tree to match. I then stamped a greeting onto the white card.

Flutterby Love

#Butterfly #Card #craft

An image free card, but i love it! DH has been asked to be best man at our friends wedding at this is the card we sent to accept the invitation. I had to slightly change the planned card because the larger swirly stamp ripped, but i don't think this card is a 2nd place replacement. i stamped it in blue, as the theme of the wedding is navy blue. I punched out several butterflies in different shades of blue. To make it ultra glam i added 2 gems to every butterfly and the added random blue and clear gems to the swirls.

winter sledging

#Card #Christmas #craft

Apologies for the wonk of the photo! this was a difficult decoupage to know what to do with, so i just decided to follow on what it had already started and layer up at 90 degrees. i embossed the white card with snow fall (again) and then added the some paper from the same kit as the topper and greeting. i then layered up on darker blue card, punched out 3 snowflakes and added 3 gems to them.
Only 8 more Christmas cards to go!

snow is falling

#Card #Christmas #craft

Some decoupage for you today. I'm getting bored of typing about Forever Friends, but its not going to end because there is loads left for next year. I was unsure how to use this image because of the arch, but then had a brainwave and embossed some white card with snow fall (invented name!). I found some coordinating paper in the ff set and layered up onto silver mirri card and added a silver greeting.

Another Christmas card! This was a nice and simple card to make, A pryamage FF topper, layered on a scalloped die cut. The greeting is from the same set as the the topper. I'm not sure where the red polka dot paper is from or the corregated card, but i'm sure you all have these in your stash.
