Vintage Birthday

Right last card CAS now back to full on lol.I made this card for my sons 50th next Saturday but blogging it early as wanted to catch a couple of challenges and he doesn't follow my blog anyway -how rude!!!As long as I don't paste it on FB lol
I made a pop-up or Ta-Da card prefer the Ta-Da myself sounds more impressive.
The papers are from TH and K&C(only about 10-15yrs old!)Embossing folders from TH-recycled corrugated cardboard packaging-two tags(not sure of origin)all the stamped images are from an A4 size set of stamps free with Creative Stamper craft mag last year-everything edged with distress ink-Screw head brads from stash.

Mini Accordion Book

Morning and I have been following Tracy Evans live FB demos practically every day and following one of them I made a mini accordion book using the needlebook die from Eileen Hull for the cover-Tracy was selling these aready cut and we made the pages to fit inside.
The covers measure 3-1/2" x 2" and the inside pages were made using papers cut to 10"x 3-1/2" cut two score at every 2" and glue together to make one long continuous accordion-cutting off two sections for the covers,then 20 smaller pieces to decorate the pages.

The cover was covered in distress oxide and all the smaller pieces were smooshed with oxides hickory smoke and fossilised amber.Then I used stamps from IndigBlu-Woodware-Bee Crafty-Artistic Stamper-Altenew-Inkylicious-Docrafts and Rubber Dance plus quite a few craft mag freebies and a stamp from Graphicus which was informed today they have been closed for 15-20years!Tim Holtz stencil and a dotty texture stamp-some overstamping with oxides and paper piecing with book pages and an added postage stamp-really enjoyed making this and will definitely make another one in different colours.I added a piece of thin elstic twine and a metal key for closure.

Tic/Tac/Toe

Morning and I have 2 DT posts today (day off tomorrow lol)and the 2nd one is for the Bingo-tic/tac/toe challenge at Daisy Chain.

I went with Flowers/Pearls and Butterflies to make a birthday card for a neighbour who loves Butterflies.
This is another card that practically made itself-I was looking through my stash for butterfly papers and actually matted and layered some on a card -then couldn't find an image that went with-so back to drawer of papers and lurking halfway down I found these flowers already cut out from goodness knows were and how they survived intact I have no idea-anyways no good to put onto a P,paper so just glued them down onto black cardstock added three foiled butterflies and some pearls from stash,heat embossed a stamped sentiment ---done!!!

High as a Kite lol

Morning and I have 2 DT posts today the 2nd one is for the "Make It Sparkly"challenge at Get Creative-sponsored by Charlie's Stamps and I used the cute image Birthday Cat Balloons coloured with promarkers then glossy accents and glamour dust on the balloons.

Now I was wondering where to go with this image-then my son text me -because I had bought my cats some Garfield treats which they didn't like I gave them to my sons cats-WELL-they now beg from him and Rosie and if that doesn't work they wait till they go to work -open the drawer and help themselves lol they are now addicted but as you can only buy them at the shop near me does that make me their dealer ??? lol.

I decided to make a tag from cereal packaging to attach to the next box(or two!)of treats-I find it hilarious tbh!The background made using oxide ink smooshed onto cardstock,then baby wipe(yes I know a no-no but got to use them up)through a TH stencil-oxide through same stencil then script stamp and paws stamps are craft mag freebies,a couple of dictionary pieces added,twine from stash and done.

Embossing and Oxides

Morning and I have two DT posts today -the first one is for A Place To Start and the challenge is to Create A Custom Background-no papers.
I made a journal page after watching Tracy Evans live demos on FB.

I white embossed the stamp which is an 8"x6" square stamp from Docrafts which I have only had for five years and this is the first time used-then oxides where swiped over the stamp and sprayed with water-the stamped sentiment is from IndigoBlu-I die cut a circle then stamped a tulip from Art Journey onto more oxide inked card and watercolour paper(which is a couple of years and first time inked more neglected stash used!)
I stamped the flower three times and layered then glued the whole thing onto the circle.I didn't have a number stamp so found a stencil with numbers and stencilled onto a piece of material and added to the corner and also a metal brad,then a few splatters to finished.

I have a teeny tiny mini book to share after watching the Tracy Evans FB lives and vidoes.The book is made from one piece of paper 5"x7" and finished book is 2,1/2" x 1.3/4"
The background was made with oxides,then stencils from TH,stamps from Chocolate Baroque,Rubber Dance,Art Journey ,craft mag freebies and my fave textures stamp.As I don't have a sewing machine I hand stitched blanket stitch round the two open ends and it also creates two little pockets to add tags.The clip was just to hold together to take pics.Also stamped onto book pages.
