Really wanted to add this...

Made this the other day.. not to enter into any challenges, but I just LOVE it! The digi image was a baragin too :)

Baby's 1st Birthday

Had an order for a Baby's 1st Birthday to do in a Aston Villa themed card... well, being a 1st birthday I didn't want to do an Aston Villa card as I thought it would be too old. So used the colours instead.. 

That's actually a pretty bad picture.. Here's another one but maybe that's a bit too dark! hahaha 

Going to enter this into the Lili's Little Fairies - Oh Boy

It's a bit late but better to be late then never! LOL

Campervan VW

Really wanted to share this with everyone because I LOVE it! hahaha made it for my God-Father's birthday. They have a Campervan but not a VW but I knew he would appreciate this soooooo much.. 

It's a Kanban sheet that you decoupage. I was assuming that you could 3d both sides and just fold the sheet in half but I took it one further.. the card is actually cut out to the shape of the van which is standing upby the wheels. It was a bit fiddly to cut round but well worth it!

Going to enter this card into the following challenges:

2. Simon Says Stamp! - Anything Goes .... Well this is anything! lol

Abigail

So it's the Lil Cousin's birthday next month and as I have to make a few cards, thought I would make a start. Funnily enough, the image is JUST like Abigail! hahaa.... 

Entering the card into a few challenges too. So without further ado, here's the card....


And the challenge's I'm entering my card into:


Very girly but she is like a fairy on a rock cake sometimes! LOL! Have stitched the edges together too. Gone a bit mad with the stitching again! It's getting straighter too. 

Close up of the detail :


Image has been coloured using pro markers and yet again..... more punched butterflies!! 

Thanks for popping by :)

Bow-dacious!

My mojo is definately in full swing! LOL Another challenge card coming right up, wanted to make something a bit different this morning and after blog hopping I decided to enter the Kenny K's Krafty Girlz challenge of Bow-dacious!
So this is what I've come up with :


Wanted to keep the card quite "gothic" looking but yet girly at the same time. I think I've managed to pull it off tho :) Pretty happy with the results to be honest. Think I've gone a bit mad with the stitching cards! lol 

Here's a few close up shots :

Was really impressed with my colouring today too! :) 


Now off to make samples of Wedding Invites and Baby Shower Invites! 

Thanks for popping by :)

Penny Black Challenge - Anything Goes

This is the first time in ages that I am joining in with the Penny Black Challenge Blog... I really fell out of love with my Penny Black stamps.. But suddenly had a "light bulb" moment. With my God-Mother's Birthday coming up, I wondered what I could use and remembered i had the stamp "Constellations" so off I went to rummage...

The layout is based ona sketch from another blog. I slightly adapted it and this is the card I created....


Colour scheme is gold, navy & kraft. The edging of each layer (if you please) has been stitched as well. The ribbon, you can just make out, has a tiny strip of gold on it so ties in beautifully. 

The image itself has been stamped but I've added colour using some promakers. Usually I keep the image clean or add pearls, but I think using colour works just as well. Added some big corner peel-offs to add more detail.

Thanks for popping by :)

Very pleased today :)

Why do all your ideas usually come to you just before you go to bed?! Honestly! 

This happened to me last night, but I did end up making this card anyways and I must say, I'm really pleased with the outcome :) So without further a do... here is my card :



I am entering my card into the following blog challenges..


Simon Says Stamp Challenge was to use "spots and/or stripes" I couldn't find any stripes that was the right colour so stayed with the spots. Had much fun stitching the card as well! The cotton kept breaking much to my enjoyment LOL! The sketch is fab! Infact, I've just used it to make another card as well.

Here's a few close ups of the detail..

Close up of details and butterflies.

For the glittery twizzly things, check out Mandy's blog. She has a tutorial on the blog :) Really effective but really messy when making them, well I made a mess anyways lol. 

Butterflies have been punched out in the co-ordinating cream card. The bodies have been coloured in using pro markers, the same as the image. It was hard colouring on the cream card tho. The card seemed to soak up the pens. But it turned out okay still.

Thanks very much for popping by :)
