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 !!!

Slimline and Recycling

 A late post for two reasons we has a bit of a situation needing a plumber! I was stood at the sink running the tap and wondering why the water was splashing my feet(good job I wear flip flops) the waste pipe under the sink had corroded and come away and the water was just running into the cupboard below -anyway all fixed now!!!

The second reason was I have found a new challenge blog-well new to me- Daring Cardmakers -and the challenge finishes soon so couldn't wait until tomorrow.

Another challenge asked for a slimline card which fitted my stamp nicely so had a play.

I stamped the thistle feom AALL and Create onto a book page,inked the edges,matted onto black card for strength and glued onto coruggated card packaging with 3-D foam pads.

I had stamped text on the coruggated card,text onto actual card with distress ink and distress ink through a Creative Expressions stencil-the little heart is from Stampin Up and I drew round the word love with a fineliner pen.

 Morning and we have a new ATG/In The Garden challenge today at 613 Avenue Create and I made another Mini album/trifold card,now the last one took a day this one slightly a lot longer maybe a week? kept changing my mind lol.

The butterflies on the front  was from a  craft mag freebie set and stamped onto leftover oddments of smooshed paper then fusst cut-the little wooden Bees and Ladybirds were from Amazon.

P.papers from stash and so was ribbon-couldn't decide whether to use white or pale green so used both!

The stamps were a mixture of Chocolate Baroque,Pink Frog and AALL and Create coloured with promarkers and added glossy accents.

Border stamp from Crafters Companion-leaf dies from The Works and I paper pieced the little snails with snippets of stamped paper.Background stencil from That's Crafty.

Flower Mini Album

 I was commenting on a project on Nigezza blog yesterday and  was completely inspired by her beautiful project so went and made one-(thank you for the inspiration)---not as nice think my papers were a bit dark and because my computer is downstairs and craft room upstairs I watched it a couple of times and just wrote down instructions instead of taking a pic so forgot to add the ribbon!

Luckily I hadn't added the topper so added ribbon underneath.

I didn't have any suitable dies for inside so used  my stamps from  Pink Frog and Chocolate Baroque.Stamps coloured with promarkers and the flower on the front was stamped onto cardstock,then a book page and finally P.paper and I put a 3D foam pad in the middle for a little depth.I used my favourite texture stamp around edges and a stencil from Creative Expressions with a grey oxide ink.No idea were the border die was from had it for years and found it at the back of a drawer.

Happy Birthday to Our Brother

 Morning and I had two cards requested by a neighbour for her sons birthday, the first one I posted yesterday and the second one was from their three cats to their Brother.

The one on the right-Oscar- only has one eye as he was shot a few years ago and is now on steroids after being diagnosed with a stomach tumour but he is the street bad guy and not giving up without a fight lol.

One day I saw a delivery woman at the end of our path and when I went to the door she said I couldn't come to the door and don't come out -Oscar was between us,I said oh he is fine and he came to me,she said he has just attacked that dog lol-said dog was a lurcher/Irish Wolfhound type and was on a lead !!!I even saw a little daschund once scared to go past him so the girl with him picked him up and Oscar chased them both down the street resident hardcase but he is a softee too -goes to a coupl of the houses for treats -sits on the bins looking through the kitchen windows-he will be missed !!!

The pics I was given were slightly dark but they were happy with the card so result.Wood paper from The Works and computer generated sentiment in Dafont using School font.

Family Projects

 I am sharing a couple of projects that are not mine.

The first one is a card granddaughter Holly made whilst checking/raiding what was left of my craft stash so all are oddments she found lol -the die-cut man I only have in black so she must have cut the other one out in white after drawing round the die-cut-I say suppose as whilst she is in there she closes the door and we get strict instructions not to come in lol.


My Daughter has now lost interest in painting and has taken up felting.
