Finally Sons Birthday Project

Well I finally finished what started as a card for my eldest sons birthday,I said last month had everything ready-stamps inks and idea (as he grows veggies and tomatoes so thought these stamps were perfect)but no mojo-well let me start!!!

First of all I thought ooh a tri card stamped everything and stuck down but hadn't left a little inbetween to allow for depth-cut the pieces out and decided to make a hanging but made a mess of that so all stuck down onto black cardstock and into a frame I bought for 50p from a charity shop but we don't need to tell him that ssshhhh.No cardstock long enough so had to use washi tape to hide the join which looked odd so used some more in between the first two cards too.

Finally got it framed and thought oops should have took all the pics before framing so out they came again!!!

I smooshed the cardstock with oxide inks,stencils from Creative expressions and Artisan Designs.All stamps from AALL& CREATE which were stamped twice and layered after colouring with promarkers.Garden tools were heat embossed onto matt mirri card,butterfly sticker/Ladybird and metal snail from stash.The flower pots were a digi image from Patties Creations and fussy cut,script stamp was used and my fave texture stamp round borders.

Butterfly Mini Miura Card

 Not entered the Butterfly Spot challenge for a while so when I saw the latest challenge thought I would have a go looks simple enough---yer right.

I cut one card out but it didn't fold properly and the edges didn't meet -checked measurements-all right-so  before I messaged Valery to check measurements I made one out of copy paper worked perfectly first time??? So made another one with card-perfect so no idea what I did with the first one.

I gold embossed a Chocolate Baroque Butterfly for the belly band,and white embossed a Chrysanthemum from Pink Frog,gold embossed sentiment was a craft mag freebie.Mwtal flower brad and all oddments of p.paper from stash.

Bee Tag

 I have a card to make for eldest sons birthday,admittedly not until next month but for the last week I have had the card fold,stamps even ink pads on my desk and I know what design I want just no inclination-how pathetic does that sound lol.

So to try and get inspired I made a tag not turned out how it was in my mind but there you go at least it was finished!

I inked up the tag and stamped a couple of Bees-the corrugated card/honeycomb piece and zigzag piece are all pieces of packaging,the flower box was cut from an oddment -the little wooden Ladybird and ribbon was from stash and the Bees are Chocolate Baroque stamped onto painted card leftovers with glossy accents on wings.

NOW we come to the splatters---which were made with Cosmic Shimmer Iridescent Watercolour New Gold- a few went on the tag BUT my desk and glasses look perfect lol !!!
