Baby Shower Tags

A lovely 3 day weekend thanks to a Bank Holiday Monday and I have so much to make. I wanted to make a start on my dad’s Father’s Day card and was due a die delivery today which is so appropriate for him but alas did not arrive, so I decided to crack on with an order someone asked me to make…. 25 Baby Shower Tags with specific colours of Blue, Pink and Silver.

I had alot of fun making these and when I sent over a proof of these they loved it ! which makes me a happy bunny. I will admit I have an alphabet stamp set but they were so fiddly so out came the laptop and printer which enabled me to create the personalised tags.

So tomorrow will see me doing more printing of background papers as have so many ideas in my head of what I would like to make 🙂

Morning Makes

Well as I had today off I decided to be bit more creative.

I have seen so many gorgeous cards being made by fab creative people that do inspire me but the image in my head does not always appear as end result – How many others have this problem ? So frustrating even when i follow guides but I must not let this get me down as still a newbie.

Did a couple of cards, just love the CBS Lets Prance and Elves stamp set. My colouring is getting there and I must admit I do enjoy using Prismacolor pencils. Only thing I wish I could of changed was background on the Elves card, but I know next time to do this.

The tags I had problems with as i just could not get my Inking to be solid, even though I tried the Versamark trick. So anyone who has tips please let me know.

Anyway here are my morning makes …. any feedback much appreciated as always

As you know I got some fab goodies for my birthday, as I had free day I finally got around to trying the gorgeous Spellbinders Sapphire  Mini Die Cutting Machine out.

I made 4 tags ( 2 christmas and 2 wish jar baby shower tags )

What do you think ? I was pleased as I also attempted to use a fab little tip I found on Clearly Besotted website regarding How to Align Stamps

I do not have a glue tape pen so good old fashion pritt stick did the job when sticking the paper to tag

Sunday Stamping

Well thought I would give my new stamps a go today and managed to create 3 cards. I know I still need tons of practice to get them 100% perfect but as they say ” practice makes perfect ” and I know I will get there eventually.

I find crafting / stamping a good way of relaxing for me.

Anyway here are some on my  “samples” i did today. Only problem I have is that I wish I kept a note of what coloured inks I used. Oh well just means another weekend of playing around with them not that I mind.

The stamps are all from Clearly Besotted and I  have not used all my new ones yet

So here is 1st one – Dashing Through The Snow ( yes I know I messed up with white reindeer in background . nose and belly not aligned but i added black outline afterwards and not lined up correctly )

Wish Jar Part 2

Remember my previous post of WISH JARS ?

Well I have finally finished my home made one at a fraction of the cost they sell for.
I bought the jar for £2.50  and printed out  jar label and A4 display poster.
Tags I admit were bought but I did get 50 for £5 as they look much better than what I could make….
Then I had a brainwave and looked on Ebay where I got rubber stamps, ink pads & lovely tag cards for future use as have a couple more jars to make …

Sweet Cones

Just came across this photo of the Sweet Cones that I made for my god daughter’s hen night.

These went down a treat and had so much fun making these ( all 30 of them ! )

I decided to use “retro” sweets i.e flying saucers, parma violets, sherbet straws, love hearts, white mice, drumsticks, rice rainbow drops etc.

Sweet cone bags are so cheap to get from Ebay if anyone decides to have a go at these

Family Tree

Family Tree MDF Craft

As well as making Scrabble Art Frames for friends & family, I was asked if I could make a Family Tree.
My first attempt with painting it was awful and no way was I happy. So I got some spray paint and Tadah much more happier with this now.
It can be time consuming making these crafts but I enjoy doing them.
What I love is that there can be many variations with it. i.e white, gold, silver or bronze hearts can be usedI have 2 different trees and to be honest am not sure what one I prefer as both are lovely.All you need to make this :- MDF Family Tree , Box frame  and Paints
Here are some of my finished designs
Happy crafting !
