Hi Bloggers

Just a quickie post from me today.It was my brothers birthday, this is the card I made him, he plays darts.

This is a gate fold card. The dart board was from a decoupage sheet I’ve had for years.

This is the card closed, I hope it looks a bit like the dart board cupboard.I’m entering this into the Cards for men
Challenge which is Sports with a sentiment.

Hi Everyone

Just a quickie from me today. I thought I’d show you the card I made for Fathers day from the kids.

This card is A4 in size. The DP is by Stampin Up as are the buttons. The letters are cut from black mount board, with sissix dies, that are single letters, they are about 4″ tall. I printed the sentiments from a do crafts Forever Friends cd, I inked these and mounted them onto black card. The edges of the backing paper have also been distressed and inked and a piece of twine has been threaded through the buttons.

Challenges Entered

Charisma Cardz – Male Cards

Dream Valley – For That Special Guy

Papertake Weekly – 3-2-1 (I’ve used 3 buttons, 2 sentiments and 1 patterned paper)

Happy Monday Everyone

I’ve got a magic card to show you today that I made for a friends birthday. I found this whilst I was blog hopping, it’s by Marianne for StampARTic.

The DP is by stampin up as is the image which has been stamped using the technique where by you colour the stamp itself with your water based pens and then stamp it directly onto the cardstock. This has then been cut out using nesties and then I’ve inked it whilst still in the die. This has then been matted onto the persian motifs die. The “70” has been cut with a sissix die set.

This is the card open, the front flap lifts up. The verse has been computer generated and matted onto the floral ovals spellbinders die.

Challenges entered

Papertake Weekly – Anything Goes

I’m off to prepare for tomorrow’s workshop.

Back soon.

Hi Everyone !!!

I have a QUADRUPLE SQUARE EASEL CARD to show you today, this is the view from the top.

I found one similar to this whilst blog hopping and thought I’d give it a go and it was a lot easier than I initially thought.

This measures 8×8 when flat.

The images on this card are toppers from Lili of the Valley and the butterflies were punched with a Martha Stewart punch. The flower stoppers where punched with an EK Success punch and a candi dot has been added to the middle.

I’m doing a workshop on this card.
