Benidorm Theme

My post for today is a special order recently taken......
This was for a person's birthday, that was going on holiday to Benidorm, and her friend had been teasing her about the venue, so therefore she asked me to make one with this theme.
The main card is an A5 landscape card and l sourced the images and then took them into my Serif
programme and made the backing paper using the stamp mode and the altered the transparent level.
Made the two toppers in two different sizes and matt and layered to give lift, then added the Happy Birthday peel-off.    My customer was well pleased with the finished card.
Thank you for stopping by and l look forward to reading your comments.

Christening Crib

For todays post l have chose this crib l made a white ago for a special order.....
The template l used is one of Arty Farty's and was made all in white card, fabric and lace, trimmed with tiny pink roses. These can be quite time consuming, but very satisfying in the completion.
I also included the small teddy for effect. The box was also made from the same template, with an acetate front with the name banner across.
Hope you have enjoyed viewing this as it is quite different from cards, look forward to reading your comments....Thank you.

In the Tree

Hi, here's my post for today....
I came across this decoupage sheet in my stash and had completely forgotten about it, as we all do l think, so l made up this quick little card. I chose to use a A6 card this time, landscape position, and after matting and layering onto different patterned paper, l then placed upon half of a doily. The small tag on the top right is black so can be personalised. A quick simple card, and will be priced very reasonable for my stall.

Sheila and Marks Anniversary

Good Morning.....
Here's my card for today, l made it for my best friends Silver Anniversary
For this card l chose to use my newly purchased Tonic dies, and after finding out her wedding day colours this is the finished card. The fold itself is explained in the photo, and of course l included silver mirror card and her wedding colours were pink in white, with white heather and tartan. I hadn't got any tartan ribbon within my stash so l coloured some red and white gingham ribbon with one of my green Promarkers and it worked, looked very similar to tartan.
Hope you have enjoyed stopping by look forward to seeing your comments...Thank You

Mothers Day card

Hi there you lovely people....
My post for today is the card l made for my Mum for Mothers Day, now don't giggle on seeing my photo as a baby......
The card itself is a 8 x 8 scalloped square card and for the main background l chose the blue card and embossed with the small dotty folder. I then used some Centura pearl card and used one of Tonics dies and also cut out the heart, l then placed the photo behind. Used the waste hearts for embellishment and then attached the small tag topped with the bow.
She absolutely loved it and it brought tears, which l thought it would do.
Many thanks for stopping by and l look forward to seeing your comments.

Greg's Birthday

Well todays card is quite different....
I made this for my son-in-law's birthday, tho l don't refer him to my in-law, just as another son....
as he is a rugby fan and was at the time following the 6 nations cup l chose to make it in that theme.
The main card is a 8 x 8 red small scalloped card, and the pictures l used were "sourced" and then l went into my digi-designer and made the background paper, and the toppers. These were then matted and layered first onto white then onto some red card to give lift, nothing more to be said really, just that he was over the moon with it and was very impressed, some my job was done.

Pink Bouquet

Here's my post for today......
The base card is white A5 landscape and the main matt is some red mirror card, l then chose the lovely pink floral backing paper and punches the corners with one of my fancy corner punches. The topper l have used is one from Hobby House, this was also matted onto the same red mirror card. Before attaching this l wrapped some lace and ribbon across just off centre. The flowers that l used for embellishment were also from Hobby House.
Quite a cute and fresh card don't you think?

Golden Wedding Anniversary

Good morning,
Here's my post for today, this was a special personalised order.....
The main card is a A5 landscape ivory card and l then used the corner embossing folder of Tattered Lace set, l then found the picture and verse and layered it onto some gold mirror card. To enhance the embossing l used my gold gilding wax. Then using my Cricut machine l cut out the letters for their names in gold mirror card and the numbers in the same ivory card and also shadow in gold mirror.
My customer was over the moon with the finished card and she also informed me that they loved it too, so my design was successful.
Thank you for stopping by please feel free to leave my any comments you have.

Decorated Lantern

Here's a surprise for you, a little different to making a card aye!
I was out shopping the other week and came upon some of these lanterns, and l thought l would give them a try on my stall, something different.
The lantern itself is metal and the windows are glass, so therefore proper tea-lights could be lit within, though for show purposes on my stall l put a battery operated one inside.
For the decoration l cut quite a few of the Trailing Ivy sprays, this is a Creative Expressions die, cut in different shades of green, and attached them around the lantern, then from my stash l glued the small flowers dotted around in a random way.
I only made one to give it a try and guess what l sold it so l have now made two more to take next time.
Many thanks for stopping by and do hope you have enjoyed visiting my blog, l look forward to reading your comments.

Hi, Back to normal thankfully.....
My card for today is one l made for my niece's birthday and is a A5 landscape black base card, with the background being white with stamped images in black, as the whole card colours are black and white. The main topper is made using shoe stamp of Chloe's l believe, and l Zentangled them and added a large glass like gem on the main one. Also stamped the message and matted them both onto black card. I am sure this will please her as she is a typical teenager.
