Am seeing all these wonderful Eclipse Cards in pretty much most groups I am in on Facebook. I was resisting ordering these 5cm letters but gave in and I am so glad I did. I adore these dies and can see these will be used very often.
So time to give them a go ! I already had this rainbow background already done as was using it for another card idea which just never happened but maybe that was a blessing ?
Anyway this is the outcome.. I just love these eclipse cards and already thinking of christmas ideas for these !
Supplies :- Distress Oxides, General sentiment stamp, 5cm Alphabet Cutting Dies
As you know ( or may not know ) My gorgeous Goddaughter is approaching 1 ( where has that year gone ?? ) As her birthday cake is Fairy / Butterfly Themed, I was asked if I could make some Butterfly cupcake toppers.
This is what I made. Think it will fit in with the theme beautifully
Following on from my Fairy and Spaceman Cards, I made this for a special little lady who will be celebrating her 1st birthday
Supplies :- Lawn Fawn Friends Stamp and die, MFT Magical Unicorns stamp and die set,
Love Die ( Ebay ) Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens
Last week I decided to play with a stamp and die set I had forgotten about ! I love this stamp set as so many uses and I made a bulk lot of these for any upcoming ladies occasions.
I also had a go at colouring them in ( which I will be first to admit I am hopeless at colouring ) but just love the scribble effect I did.
Supplies :- Beautiful You Stamp set, Nuvo Alcohol Markers, Spectrum Noir Sparkle Brush Pens
So now with christmas is over with, now begins the mad rush of birthdays I have in next few months. I decided to start today with a card for my god daughter’s upcoming first birthday and for a special little man in my life.
For my god daughter’s card I decided to go with a Fairy theme as I know she has a fairy birthday cake on order so it seemed fitting. For the background I grabbed a piece of laminated sheet ( as I have no acetate ) and put Distress Oxides Worn Lipstick and Pickled Raspberry on it and spritzed with water and placed white card on top. This is first time I have done this and I am very pleased with result.
Such a shame the camera did not pick up the gorgeous glitter from Spectrum Noir Sparkle Brush Pens. Again this was my first time using these and again I am so impressed with these and so easy to use. I have my eye on 2 more other sets ! This set was Spring / Summer.
For the special little man in my life I decided to use the Space Explorer stamp and die set. Again I am not that brilliant at colouring but i gave it a go … I know I have room for ALOT of improvement but I was pleased and hopefully little man will be too. The pens I used were Nuvo Alcohol Markers.
Firstly I would like to apologise to anyone that follows my blog for my recent silence. I have been extremely busy with work, family, crafts and Christmas.
Over the pass few weekends I have made Christmas Cards for family and God Children. To be honest since last year I have seen a slight improvement in my crafting although I will be honest and say I am still nowhere near as good as alot of crafters out there but I am pleased with the cards I have made.
This will more than likely be my last blog post of 2017 as for the next few weekends I am busy so I will bid you all a Merry Christmas & All the best wishes for 2018. Hope you all have a lovely Christmas and family time. Stay safe and see you next year
Hope you like the cards 🙂
I had so much fun making these christmas cards. Soon as I worked out how to colour background I could not stop making these.
Am so in love with the Gnomes which came free with a magazine
Inks used :- Distress Oxides Cracked Pistachio, Lucky Clover, Candied Apple Broken China & Spiced Marmalade.
