Birthday Cards

I've been busy making Birthday cards this week, the card is for my Mum.  I've used Naturals Ivory as a base for the card and stamped the butterfly image from the Punch Potpourri using Crumb Cake and then stamped the flowers using Rose Red and punched out and layered onto the card. 

This is a card I did for my daughter to give to her friend, again Naturals Ivory as a base, using the I {heart} Hearts stamp in Crumb Cake and Rose Red.  With the flowers from the Punch Potpourri set again.

This card is for my Mum from the kids!  The base card is Crumb Cake with the flourish from Baroque Motifs stamped in Crumb Cake with the small flower stamped over the top (using my trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig!) in Rose Red and Wild Wasabi.  The frame is from the Four Frames set, stamped in Wild Wasabi and the Just for You sentiment is from the Oval All set, stamped in Rose Red and punched out and layered onto the frame.

I think the last card is my favourite, I love the Four Frames set.  I can't wait to have a proper 'play' in the week when the house is quiet :)

Sat 11th May class - Male theme

I can't believe it's time for another class already, what fun I've had this weekend making samples for this class.  I think Crumb Cake is one of my favourite colours.

I've put together 3 cards, one is a Father's Day card and the others could be for any occasion.  There is also a decorated storage jar and a page marker, which could both be used as pressie's for Father's Day.  Or to keep! :)

I've used Not Quite Navy and Crumb Cake card stock with the Newsprint designer papers (which are great for Vintage cards).  I've used Crumb Cake, Marina Mist and Wild Wasabi inkpads with Marina Mist striped grosgrain ribbon and some twine around the storage jar.

The stamp set that I've used is the Baroque Motifs with sentiments from the Occasional Greetings and Oval Punch set.

I can't wait for the class on Sat, there are still places left so if you're in the Hinckley, Leicestershire area get in touch and come along :)
