That Vintage look AGAIN!!! :0)

Well i just felt like doing something i loved the other day so i decided to go down the vintage look again!   Using Stamoin Up's Crumb cake card for the main part of the card, then a stamp set from Stampin Up to make the flowers etc. I have stayed with the brown inks all the way through and have used garden twine to give it a different look x

My last post for the day is yet another baby card x

I have tried to get away from the Traditional cream, blue or pink for a baby card and have gone with a black and white theme.    I have used A Digi Image and have just tried to follow on with the same colours and again have used a big bow to dress it up.   I have added a sentiment saying welcome baby and have mounted it on a white glitter card  to make it stand out.   I have also added a small amount of clear glittery stickles on the pom pom on baby's hat.
Hope you like it I just think it is so cute x
Thanks for looking xxx

Mother's day card x

After using the glitter backing sheet for the piglet card I just had to use it again so I decided to make a mothers day card x
Once again I have used a Lily of the valley topper.   I have made the paper flowers on the side just to give the card a bit of a lifted / 3D look.
Thanks again for popping by and looking at my blog xx

Piglet x

Well i had a card order this week for a little girl who loves pink and piglet so iI have put together a topper to go on a 8x8 card.   I have used my Winnie the Pooh cart for my cricut to cut out little piglet and the piglet wording.  I ahve used my doodle type cart to get the letters to spell 'today' & the number 6.   I used a circle punch for the balloon on made a small adition for the stem of the balloon to tie on the cord.   I have used a sticky back glitter sheet for the base of the topper and then mounted it on black to just merge it in with the piglet etc.   I have added a few pics on the making piglet and his topper then the finished thing x (Oh Pics added also so Fi can see i have used my Cricut again!!!)  :0)

Another Baby card x

Well again I have made another baby card!   Using the same layout of the card as my previous baby card post and also using the lily of the valley 'babies' topper I,ve come up with another card for a little tiddler. I have used the scallop punch once again to make a fancy boarder.  I have layered it in the different colours to give it more of a fancy look and hve added some pearl like beads along the edge.    I have put in two eyelets on the side and tied a big bow to dress it up a bit!   (you can never have enough ribbon I don't think!!)  Once again I've used a sentiment to finish it off.  
Thanks for looking xx

Well Im on a roll today with some new bits!!!!

So as you have seen i have not posted for ages!   One thing and another and two little ones just keep me so busythese days especially now the sun has decided to show its face!!
So First i have made a notelet sort of card. I have used Crumb cake, pumpkin pie and very vanilla card from stampin Up. I have used a Stamping Up two step stamp set to do all the flowers and stems and then just added a small sentiment  and have used the scollop punch for a boarder to finish it off!
Hope it is liked x

A card for a little fella who will be 3!! ( using my Cricut machine )

Well have done a card for a lady who's grandson will be 3 shortly. She asked me to go along with his fave colour which is a pinky purple colour and he loves cars!   So here it is my Disney Cars cart came in very handy and I used 'sally' (the car) instead of lightening mcqueen as I did not want all the fancy details that that car has.

With this card not only does the little fella get the car in the colour he loves he also gets some keys too which are from jolee's topper packs.
Well will stop babbling now and hope you like my creation!

A customer challenge!!

Well I recently had a order from a customer who wanted a card for a lady who was 40. I was in shock when she told me what she wanted on the are the instructions

4 seperate pictures of buildings (The four buildings on the front of the card she had chosen as the person who the card was for had visited these places and loved them.)
A Handbag, Ski's and a cocktail glass not forgetting the greeting for the 40th birthday!
So I decided to go with a black and white theme and print the pictues off that I found on the internet in black and white then I used some Kanban backing card as I  love the floral papers etc that are out at the mo!  The cocktail glass was from a Jolee pack.   I used 2 metal embelishment handbags to try and fit them in with the colour theme of black, white grey etc.  The ski's I did not managed to get on the front as they were bright yellow but I managed to get them on the insert which I blended in with matching bits and bobs also from the ski range from jolees (sorry forgot to take pic of the inside :0( ...... )
