Wedding cards - 3 needed for the same wedding!

So I recently had a order for 3 wedding cards all for the same wedding.  Asked to be either floral or butterflies so they left me up to my own idea with that in mind so here is the finished items.
Large flower card was done using very vanilla card and crumb cake card. I used crumb cake Ink also so it matched the colour of the card.   The Stamp Set is build a blossom that also has a matching punch (thank goodness). All Card and products are from Stampin Up.

The next card has a great big cream bow tied at the side....I just love ribbon!!!     It is in cream card and gold mirror card.  I made the two ruffled flowers by punching a scalloped circle out using my stampin up punch.  I then wet these slightly using a water mister and screwed the paper bits up.  I then used some cheap hairspray as i think it gives them a tough ragged edge once dry.   Once the scallop circles are nearly dry open them out and lay a few (I had 6 for each flower layered up) on top of each other and fix together how you would like Ie brad, button etc.    The centre not bit was cut out using a Stampin Up die it has like a fake stitch look around the edge!

The third card-  I used white card and silver mirror card.   I used peel off clear glittered butterflies on the front and made their wings stand up slightly using silicone.   I used some wired ribbon and a ribbon slider on the side to try and give it a glitzy feel. 

So thats about it see what you think and thanks for popping by x

My Acceptance card x

We recently have been invited to a friends party and I wanted to make my own acceptance card.   So here it is!   I used the party Edwin stamp from Magnolia Tilda......... I just love him!!   I coloured him using Tim Holtz distress Inks   - Black soot, pumice stone, Weathered wood, Antique Linen, Tattered rose and vintage photo. I found a random stamp among my collection to add the word party at the bottom which i also stamped in Black soot.  I decided that instead of a normal card I would make a tag just something a bit different.    Well a short post but I hope you like him!!
Have a great weekend all because I know Im going to have a fantastic one!!!

Card for a little one x

Well I had a card order last wek for a peppa pig card and here is the finished product.    Al the card making peppa pig topper were not very big at all so i decided to have a look about and ended up buying a sticker book and this is the pig from the front cover.   Inside were the few sticker pages where the coloured dots came from.  All i did was emboss them slightly to give them a dome shaped look.    I used my Cricut teardrop cart to  get the lettering first in shadow then without shadow.   To make the letters sparkle i used crystal from the stickles range.

No its real not your imagination!!!

Well my 'just for you' card!!   I recently bought a card stack from Stampin Up in the neutrals collection......I have been thinking about it for ages  and decided yes why not!!     Im so pleased I did as the card and patterns out of this world and if you struggle for mens cards every page in it can be used for mens cards!!!   So here is a black and grey sheet.   I have used the Tim Holtz rosette die to make the flower and a die to create the flourish.   I have used Basic Grey ink also from Stampin up around the edges.  The sentiments is also funky i think that is from a set called 'oval all' i just love the stamps in that set too.
Anyway i shall leave you on peace to get over the shock in my 2nd post in a week and sneak away never know i may add another later today!  :0)
Happy crafting guys and pop by again soon xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
