Niece's Birthday Card

Today's card is one I made for my niece. It is a 'Twist and Pop' card. It is a kit from Hunkydory. Everything you need is in the kit. I just added the little greeting tag from Hunkydory's Little book of sentiments.

Grandson's Birthday Card

Today is my youngest grandson's 2nd birthday. Not sure where that time has gone but he is growing far to fast. He is such a character and has us in stitches.

He is obsessed with Paw Patrol so of course that is what I had to put on his card. The wording was done in CAP. Image was printed twice so that I could decoupage it. The number 2 is also decoupaged. I have added glossy accents to the number 2 and to the badges on the dogs hats. The greeting came from Hunkydory's book of sentoments.

Workshop at Crafts U Love

Went to a workshop yesterday at Craft u Love. The class was run by Caz Counsell and here is the lovely card that we made. Looks quite complex but it is easy to make using the a die from Karen Burniston. Great card and so many different ways to decorate it.

Another Christmas card

Another couple of shoebox cards. More Christmas cards for my box :-) 

Image is a Forever Friends bear. The card is a different fold. 


This card should have had some acetate with it to make a domed front but I didn't have any in the pack so just made it. Image is decoupaged.

Shoebox Cards

As those that have read my blog before, every year I go away on a crafty week with friends up to Appleby Magna. Each person that goes does at least one project that everyone else can do. This is called a 'Shoebox project' and includes all the materials and instructions so if needed you can take them home and still do the project.

I have been doing some sorting in my craft room and came across a box with some of the ones I have collected over the years. As I have made 2018 the year that I will be finishing all my unfinished projects then I thought I would make them up. Most of them so far are Christmas ones. Some are not to my taste but that's the good thing about shoebox cards - you do things that you wouldn't normally do.

Here are the first 2 that I finished.

Valentine's Day

Valentine day has come and gone again and I nearly forget to get hubby a card. Luckily I have just purchased a heart die from Lawn Fawn via www.cs-getcrafty.com which we had used on the last workshop cards and an idea popped into my head. I used a heart embossing folder and then stuck some of the heart dies in the de-bossed bits. Added a couple of strips of heart backing card that I found in my stash and added a greeting stamp. 

Simple!

Sharni's Workshop Card

The card I have to show you today is Sharni's card from last week's workshop. Same colours used as her Mum's card and the flowers are the same. 

The original card was a shaker one within the heart but I never have much luck with them so I have made mine without the shaker bit. Thought it would make a lovely anniversary card for someone.
