Another Baby Girl Card...

It's funny how in the last couple of months I have been asked to make/made 4 Baby Cards...3 Girls & 1 Boy. The girl ones were all for the same person to give to her friends... So here is the latest...
I love making these easel cards for Baby cards as I love to put the birth details behind the bingo card...makes them lovely keepsakes...well I think so, and thankful so did the New Mums that received them...

Been busy crafting over the BH weekend...made a few cute frames for Georgia's friends who were here for a sleepover on Saturday night...will show them soon.

Hope everyone else is enjoying the long weekend...even if the weather has been a mixed bag...

Cute Card Thursday Challenge - Text Only!

This week over on the Cute Card Thursday Challenge Blog our theme is Text Only. So no stamped or digi images, the only images can be on the papers used. I decided to make my first Christmas Card of 2014...I know it's only May...LOL. So I used a new stamp that I got in the sale over on Craft Obsessions, it's by Hero Arts. I stamped with some VersaMagic ink in Platinum Planet and layered onto some red glitter cardstock. The other patterned papers are all Teresa Collins Santa's List and are also layered with either red shimmer cardstock of silver glitter paper. I finally added some ribbon that was from Asda in the sales after Xmas and also some sequins that came with the TC Santa's List papers from Create & Craft (also in the sale).

Be sure to check out the rest of the DT's creations...they are all so varied...and gorgeous!

Cute Card Thursday - Handmade Embellishments!

This week over on the Cute Card Thursday Challenge Blog our theme is Handmade Embellishments. As I was making a boy card I kept them pretty simple...
I made this card to send to a sick child via Post Pals...I found out about Post Pals via a Facebook Group called Jellypark Post Pals. The images are drawn by Claire Keay and once you have used an image to make a card for one of the kids, she will send you the next stamp (there are five in total). It's such a worthy cause and a lovely way to brighten up a sick childs day.

So back to the card details. As I said the image is by Jellypark and I have coloured it with Copics using the following colours...
Skin - E000/E00/E11/R20
Clothing - BG70/BG72/BG75/BG78/E44/E47/E49/YR02
Monkey - YR23/YR24/BG70
The papers are all My Minds Eye Six by Six Away We Go and I have layered them with some Bazzill Kraft Cardstock. For the handmade embellishment part of the challenge I created the metal bling with a hole punch and some mirror cardstock and also added stars made with a Nestabilities die and a handcut arrow. The sentiment is from a Pink Paislee set.

Be sure to check out the challenge and also Post Pals and the Facebook group. So I have more cards to share... I have made more cards this week than I made during the whole of February/March/April...

Duh....

So I totally forgot to share my card for last weeks Cute Card Thursday Challenge which was Paw Pals....so here is the card, plus another I made at the same time...
So this one was for the challenge....the Paws are on the bear at the bottom of the Easel Card. The main image is a pre-coloured digi from Clipart Fairy and the papers are all My Minds Eye Love Me.

So here is another variation I made at the same time...
Both were custom orders, I added more embellishment to the first one as it was for a friend to give to her "Bestest Friend in the World"...

Feedback was the both of the new Mummy's loved their cards and kept showing them off....I love it when people love my cards.

I have another new card to share tomorrow for this weeks challenge on CCT...better make sure I remember to actually share it....

Dropped off the face of the Earth...

I am not sure if I was missed....but I am back after a nasty cough that just wouldn't go...turned into a bit of an infection...anyway I am finally back to almost 100%...probably about 90% health..

So I thought I would share only the third card I have made since the end of January...

This week on Cute Card Thursday our challenge is Here comes Summer....
I have used an image by Wendy Burns @ All Dressed Up which I have coloured with Copics (boy do I feel rusty when it comes to colouring...) using the following colours...
Skin - E000/E00/E11/R20
Hair - E50/E53/E55
Clothing - BG70/BG72/BG75/Y21/Y26/R27/R29/C0/C1
The papers are all American Craft Hip Hip Hooray layered with some random red cardstock. I embellished making some bunting from washi tape and twine, and added an AC Flair badge "Hi", and a Inkadinkado Quote sentiment stamp.

I did make a couple of Baby cards while I was away so will show you those over the next couple of days..

I hope to be back more regularly from now on...but Sea Cadets are back boating for the Summer...so life tends to get a little hectic.
