another lot of cards!

Here is a card for my friends 30th birthday (another age surprise!) the 3,0, and the greeting came from hobby craft, i cut the wavy circle using my purple cow circle cutter out of glitter card, i then dry embossed some silver card and put it all together. i neary stuck it onto a white card, but it didn't look right so made a black card to stick it on.
this i a card a made a while ago but forgot about it! it is D&D papers and stickers! i inked the edges of the paper and the greeting. i stuck the bear onto white card and then added the butterfly straight to the paper.
here is a card i have made for my bro and sis in law for their 11yr anniversary, i'm not that happy with it but it is made! the dimensions stickers cam from a do crafts goodie bag and i didn't really know what to do with them, so here you are. they are stuck onto black core dimensions that i sanded with a nail file, unfortunatly i stook it down wonky so used a bit if ribbon to hide it!

friday sketchers challenge

here is my card for the friday sketchers challenge. i had to deviate slightly for the design as i didn't have a small enough oval cutter so used a circle, and needed to add something to the outside corners, i hope that was ok. the stamp is a greeting farm one, coloured in using watercolour pencil crayons. i then used yellow core dimensions card that i tore along the edges, and placed that onto pink tissue paper. the greeting was one i just had in ( from somewhere!) i made the smaller flowers using a gem, a sequin and a die cut flower from lets make cards. i then added the larger flowers which are papermania.
thank you for looking!!

lots of cards!

i have had a lovely weekend makng cards! the only problem was i was full of cold whilst i made them, i'm thankful no one can see me typing my blog because it's not a pretty picture! am going to put them on a few at at time coz i can't put them all in one blog.

Here is a card for our friend who has just moved to his first home, it is a flat but i struggled to find anything for that so used a stamp i alrerady had. i coloured it in using watercolour pencil crayons, and based it on a sketch from friday sketchers, that was a challenge ages ago. the new home is stamped with a papermania alphabet set and coloured in felt tip. the ribbon is from inside a top!
This is for my dad who is turning 60 (what do you mean you already knew?!) i bought the 60 from hobbycraft, and cut a circle using my purple cow cutter, the cut out some stars to finish the card off.

This card is for my Uncle, a sports fan, as you can see i have used an onion stamp from the males set, and i'm not sure where the paper is from- any ideas? i based it on a sketch from the pink elephant challenge blog. it's ok but i'd change it if i were to do it again!

MSE sketch challenge

here is my entry for the latest challenge on MSE.

I used core dimensions for the backing and tore it along the ruler, rather then cutting, some white glitter card, pink wavy card, 2 strips of yellow ribbon, and a 'special' image that i clear embossed twice- i think it makes the image look 'proffesional'. i then went off sketch and added the 6 which is stamped in pink and then embossed in glitter.
the card is for my niece who is going to be 6 surprisingly!

house card

this is a card for sis in law, who has fully extended her house, well husband helped! didn't want to make a new home card so thought this black cat would be good. i bought it from a craft fair 10pish then added the diamentes, the backing paper is from the same stall in a little pack.

cardsa for twin cousins

the first card is for the eldest cuz, who lives with her partner, daisy and dandelion stamp in gold and embossed, then on matching paper, a D&D daisy border stamped and embossed in gold.
the 2nd card is a papernations stamp done in silver, embossed the coloured in, black opaque ribbon behind some shiny pink corregated card. the HB stamped onto black card. the other cuz is a party animal!

card for niece

here is a card for my step niece, as you can see shes called cara! a forever friends stamp done in gold and embossed, the coloured the parcel in, the letters are also stamped in gold and embossed.

2 fathers day cards

well here are 2 cards for fathers day.

the 2nd one is quite plain, coz it's for the in law. husband didn't use to send a card, but since i started making them he wants to send one so i didn't bust a gut but it was a good way back into card making. inside i'm going to write on fathers day.

the 1st one is for my dad, using a special 'rusty' image. coloured in felt tip, stamped all over with a clear pad and them embossed- i do love embossing! i then cut it out and raised it up.
