Hi Everyone!!!

These are a couple of wedding cards I made for the same couple, the theme was cream, pink & brown.

The first one was A4 in size…..

The bride & groom were cut out with a Quikcutz die and the heart behind them I cut using my gypsy and cricut machine. The border was punched with a Martha Stewart punch.

I added the date of the wedding and a verse to the inside, which were computer generated.

The second one is also A4 in size.

The doves and heart are Stampin Up stamps.The heart and scalloped circle are spellbinders nesties. The lattice border and the punched floral background were created using Martha Stewart punches. the bows and rings were from the stash.

Inside there is a pop out element…

…this is where I’ve added the date and some punched borders to match the front. The verse is on the back.

Hi Everyone!!!

The challenge over at Cards For Men this week is ” Clean & Simple. I’ve made two black & white cards virtually the same but change the combination of layers.

I saw this ships wheel idea while surfing the net, sorry can’t remember where!! but thought it was a really good one!! The products used are from Stampin Up.

Not sure whether I prefer the first or second. What do you think?

Hi Happy Sunday to you!!!!1

I made this card for a friend for her daughter~in~laws 40th birthday…….

I’ve used some Marianne design dies to create the layers and the glasses are stamped with a stamp I got from Stamp Addicts some years ago.

Over at Secret Crafter the challenge this week is “BLACK & WHITE”.

Also at Cute Card Thursday it’s no designer papers, hope this fits in with the challenge, although it’s not a cute card.

Thanks for stopping by 😀

Hi Everyone!!!!!

Here’s the birthday cards I made for our Darling Daughter,, she loves to make cupcakes….

This is an 8×8 card, the papers are Stampin Up. The cupcake on the front opens up to reveal a hidden message,this was made using a Papermania template. The punches I’ve used are Martha Stewart.

When you open up  the card the cupcake inside twirls round. The verses were computer generated.

Secondly….here’s the card I made for my son’s to give her….

…as you can probably guess she like black & red.

This is an A4 folded lengthways.

The phone was created using a Arty Farty template and “sister” was cut using a QuicKutz  alphabet called Abigail. A few punched flowers and gems and hey presto.
