More Kids Birthday Cards

Lots of Logan and Ky's friends are celebrating birthdays at the moment. Here are 2 cards I've had a chance to make so far. Firstly this little cutie cake card is for Ella. Just plain but I like it and the sentiment says "if you are what you eat, eat something cute". She is a cutie too.

Secondly is this card for Isaiah. It looks better in real life but I just don't have lots for little boys so I just did a few different animals. The little owl has blue rhinestones for his eyes.
Hello to share with you an idea I saw on Mandy Schiller's blog . This is a hair clip holder/organiser. I made this for Logan's friend Grace and gave it to her with some clips on it. Silly me forgot to take a pic with the clips on but basically you clip the hair clips onto the pink ribbon. This was a white canvas I sponged with pink ink and then stamped baroque motif background stamp and added butterflies with pearls on them. I kept this one pretty plain for my first attempt.

Butterfly Card for Grace

Hi Everyone. Well what a start to the New Year with the devastating floods in our beloved Queensland. It's been absolutely crazy. My daughter's best friend Grace had to postpone her 5th birthday party due to floods last Saturday but the party will be on tomorrow. Here is the card I made for her birthday. Hope you like it Grace. I just love my little butterfly punch at the moment.

Elegant Bouquet Butterflies

Here to share with you some super simple cards. Again I must give credit for this simple design I found on this blog. Becky has made cards similar to the 2nd card below layout however she has used the butterfly die and I have used a stamp and punch for my butterfly. My cards simply use whisper white and I tried out the new In Colour Peach Parfait which I wasn't too sure of when I first saw it. I'm not an orange lover but I really liked it when I used it on this card. These two cards are birthday cards for two special little girls, Jill who will be 3 soon and Anika also 3 today.

Concord Crush Christmas

Here are some more Christmas Card I've made. I love this very simple layout and must give credit to Jayne Mercer for the inspiration behind it. Each card is a little different. The first uses shimmer paint on the bauble and some silver cord, the second is plain and doesn't use the punch along the bottom, the third is the main design I used for a few Christmas Cards I made this year. I love using the Elegant Bouquet embossing folder on the background of these cards and the new In Colour Concord Crush.

Colour Spritzing

Hi Everyone. I love using the colour spritzer tool I bought earlier this year. I've made a few cards using this technique (it's the splattered chocolate ink look over the flower image on these cards...i hope that is making sense). I made a few of these cards earlier in the year but didn't add to my blog then. I just used one the other day so thought I'd take some pics and add on here now.

Bella Rose Scallop Easel Card

Back with yet another Scallop Easel. I've had a couple of requests from friends to make these lately. This one is for a little girl who'll turn 5 soon.

Sunday, November 14, 2010

Yep, you guessed it...another Scallop Easel Card

I have some flowers that I have been wanting to use on cards for some time now and thought this style of card would suit the big flower. I teamed it with he Cottage Wall DSP, Rich Razzleberry and Orchid Opulence card stock. The butterflies have been paper pierced too for something a little different.

Scallop Easel Take 3

And another Scallop Easel Card...this time something a bit brighter. Since taking the photo I have added a rhinestone to the birdie for an eye. The centre of the flowers has crystal effects and the bird is clear embossed although you probably can't tell in the photo.

Catalogue Case

I made this card which is a case out of the new Stampin' Up caty. Love the embossing folders Stampin' Up has.

Butterfly Easel Card

I made this scallop circle easel card for my crafting buddy and dear friend Mel's birthday which is tomorrow. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MEL!!!! I really liked the way this turned out and plan to make more easel cards this way.

Christmas Bits and Pieces

Christmas is coming and here is a Christmas card layout I really like. I did find this idea from another person's blog, Pee Jay's who actually made a gift card. Simple yet cute...
I also made this little Christmas Purse

and some little bookmarks

Masking Technique

Hello there. I have actually remembered to take a few pics of cards I've made recently. These 3 all use the making technique which I really like.

Makeesha's Sketch Challenge #43

Well, my blog sure has been neglected of late. I've made some things but never seem to get around to taking photo's of and posting them. It also seems forever since I played along with a Keesh challenge. So here I am with a card for her latest. My daughter has a birthday party for her little friend Piper today and here is the card we have made for her. Gotta flee. Until next time....bye bye.

Slide Card

My gorgeous friend Mel recently made some of these super cute slide cards. They use a strip of plastic from a shopping bag as the slide cool is that. I thought I'd give it a go and here is the card I made. Again my photos are very ordinary but the card has been given to my sister and brother in law for their 28th wedding anniversary so I can't retake the photo now. These are quite cool to make.

Purse Bag for Treats

First of all, apologies for my grainy photo but I wanted to share these cute little bags with you. This is an old tutorial of the very talented Makeesha Byl's. Keesh uses ribbon as her handles, however I've used whisper white card stock with a strip of matching DSP. These are perfect for little treats and the front panel could be adapted to a range of shapes, in fact I'm going to try and make another using the scallop circle soon. These are really simple to make and I'm sure I'll make plenty more in the future.

One Sheet Wonder - Vintage Vogue

It's been a while since I did a One Sheet Wonder. For those unfamiliar with the term, it is where you take a piece of A4 and stamp it up or DSP and cut into various pieces usually to a template to create several cards. I can across Linda Craven's blog recently and loved the One Sheet Wonder she made using the Vintage Vogue stamp set. I have used slightly different colours than Linda using Purely pomegranate, Old Olive, Whisper White and Pretty in Pink. I took a few quick pics before I used one of the cards for a girlfriends birthday.

So first up is the template I followed from Linda's blog.

And here is my piece of paper all stamped up

And a couple of pics of my cards all completed

the wind kept blowing them over....

Love You

I like this little card made from scrap DSP and the heart punch. Perfect for a loved one.

Baby Girl Cards

I just love these baby girl cards that my friend Mel put me onto making. She also has a template for little boy cards too, I just haven't had any friends produce any baby boys lately. I gave these two cards to two very good friends, who also happen to be sisters that had their latest babies just a couple of weeks apart.

Another Grocery List and Post It Note Holder

Hi Again, back with another Grocery List Holder made with some old DSP. This was the first ever pack of DSP I ever purchased from Stampin' Up and I still have some, or maybe a bought a second pack. Anyway, it's great if you want bright bright bright colours. I have also made a different post it note holder, this time the idea came from a gift I once saw Keesh receive (here is the link, scroll down) made from the very talented Kim Badelt. It is a coaster covered in DSP from Lincraft with a clip decorated. Very easy.

Post It Note and Shopping List Holders

Hi there. This afternoon while my darling son has been sleeping (which he is bound to wake up any second from now) his beautiful sister and I made this Post It Note and Shopping List Holders to wrap up as a prize for her kindy tombola. I just need to slip in a pen on the front cover of the shopping list holder and it will be right to wrap up. A template for the shopping list holder can be found here although I adjusted it to suit my size pad and here for the post it note holder. Thanks for looking.

FTL #87 Case

FTL 87 has this simple layout this week. I just loved their example which can be seen here. I just had to make one too. I have not added my card to the challenge, this is purely a cased card.
