Snail Mail and Belated Birthday!

Hi all!

Last week I totally forgot to post my BFF a birthday card :(
Yes, I know. Cardmakers do have the worst record when having to remember our own friends and family's birthdays but what can you do? Well, for a start, I did make a lovely card using digital stamps Wryn Snail Mail and Fairy Fae House from my favourite Tiddly Ink Stamps!
I thought I'd better post it so she'll have it at least on Tuesday but, what happened? She turned up this afternoon with her fella in tow for tea and a slice of cake and I could've given her the card but............oh well! Snail mail might just have to do this time!!!

Still, we did sort some deets out for our upcoming holibob to Zante so it wasn't a wasted visit!!!


Products Used -

6 x 6" white base card
Pastel blue cardstock - Create and Craft
Embossing folder - free with Love Cardmaking (issue 1)
Spectrum Noir and Tonic Nuvo marker pens
Pc and Printer
Pierced edge circle dies - Unbranded.
Mini cloud dies - Xcut


Have a great day!

Catch up time!

Hi all!

Well. I have been so busy creating from morning til night that I just haven't had time to blog about any of my recent makes and successes!!!

I have had a new baby card requested, kind of ASAP!, as the lady who requested it couldn't find a card with the new baby's name on so she thought of me and I'm glad she did! I love making new baby cards - they're really sweet and cute!
This is it and below each photo I've listed the products I used -




White 5 x 7" base card
Pastel pink cardstock - Create and Craft
Hammered white card - Create and Craft
Digital image from Lili of The Valley - Cosy Pram
Spectrum Noir blendable pencils
Spellbinders circle and scallop dies
Ranger Distress Ink - Spun Sugar
water spritzer and paint brush
Pink ribbon and sparkly ric rac ribbon - The Ribbon Girls
Sequins
Pc and printer

The second card I've made this week is for a couple who are celebrating their anniversary with my sister in law in Crete! Their annual holiday falls on the anniversary which, I guess, is just an excuse to have a few more drinks and another party on their summer holibobs!!!
I do know them and I know they have a fab sense of humour so this one is right up their street!



White 6 x 6" base card
Gus and Stella digi stamp from bugaboo stamps
Deco Time cardstock/patterns paper pad
Spectrum Noir/Tonic Nuvo marker pens
pearls and gems
Pc and printer

And Finally!
This week I've been featured as part of the Reader Tester Team in Papercraft Inspirations magazine! (issue 168).
The challenge was to make a shaped card using a choice of templates and papers provided.

I think I did ok with this "bobbin" shaped card. I added some haberdashery (just love that word!) into the make by using stamps and dies and some fussy cutting and made the whole thing into a shaker card for fun! Hope you spotted me in there!





Hope you've had a good week/weekend.
I'm off to do some shopping and I will post the new projects as soon as I'm able!

Tiddly Inks Fab Friday!

Good morning all!

Today is a very special day for me as it's my first Design Team post for Tiddly Inks!
I created a super sweet card using Wryn - Cloud 9 (She's my fave Tiddly Inker!)
Tiddly Inks have an inspirational post once a month, on a Friday, called - Fab Friday!
This Friday, 21st July, is the next one and I'm really chuffed to be featured in it!

I kept this card quite simple and even though the rainbow is brightly coloured, I made Wryn the main focal point by setting Wryn, and her cloud, just over the rainbow and breaking the colours up.



Products used - Basic 6 x 6" white card base
                          Distress Ink in Mermaid Lagoon (blue sky)
                          Unbranded pierced edge cloud die.
                          Smooth white cardstock.
                          Free rainbow stamp from Creative Stamping magazine
                          Spectrum Noir and tonic Nuvo marker pens
                          Blue sequins (from a selection at The Range)


Hope you like her and, if you'd like to have this image in your stash, pop over to the Tiddly Inks store where you can purchase it and download to your pooter straightaway!

Have fun colouring and creating :)
