Mum's Birthday Card

Here is another card made using the sweet bunting banner my good friend sent me for my birthday. This time I used it on a card to celibrate my Mum's birthday yesterday.

 
I made a 6x6 card blank and using all papers from Kaisercraft and this lovely P.G. tip Bestie I created this card. My mum is what we call a "tea belly" hardly ever drinks coffee and almost always has to be her favorite tea "P.G.Tips.
I trimmed up a little off the side of the card to add the stripe paper, the flowers on the bottom left are raised up on foam dots over the top of the same flat paper. I ran the top left and bottom right through an embossing folder and inked with marmalade.
Hope you like it.

Bunting and Banners...143

Hello there,
Today over at www.myshericrafts.blogspot.com it's owner sheri's turn to choose the challenge and she's picked a " good un" as we say. It's to use either a banner or bunting on your card or project. Now this will be fun to see all your entries. There are so many dies out there so let's see how many different ones you use.

Here is my card it has been made for Big Sister Beverley who celebrated a couple of days ago. Her and her hubby have purchased one of those coffee pod machines that a certain Mr Clooney advertises and she loves it ☺️��. So when I saw this cute little digi over on the Bestie site I had to buy it. I know so many people who love a coffee just a shame there isn't a guy one out there as my better half is addicted too.


The card I made is a 7 x 7, I coloured her in using a lot of muted coloured Promarker pens with the papers in mind. I have used my Verve stamps on here to make the Java strip, sentiment and their die to cut the cup out. I even used the wet cup stain to make the background paper and then inked the edges. The banner was a birthday gift from my dear friend and I cut it out twice to insert the blue. Others dies from Spellbinders have been used too.



This card is using banners. I needed a simple girly birthday card so for this I used some free papers along with some gems. The sentiment is the free stamp that came with the papers. I made the flower using a SB die.

Right now it's your turn to join in, so pop over to see the other girls makes and then post your creation .

Sue.

Challenge 142 Birthday Bash


Hi There,
this time over on www.myshericrafts.blogspot.com it is Design Team Sister Raquel's turn to pick the challenge and this time she has chosen Birthday's . We must include elements to do with Birthdays.

This time I decided to do a layout of my Dad's 80th Birthday. We all went up there and took afternoon tea with him and my Mum in a lovely old hotel on the promenade in Llandudno.

 
He use to drive buses for a living so his birthday cake was just like one. He also in his youth played cricket hence the umpire and the "80 Not Out" but his one other love (other than my Mum) was his garden.
 
On the layout I have used lots of bits and bobs and I think he'll love it when he sees it.
 
Right now its your turn to join in, but do checkout the other girls birthday treats.

Challenge 141 on My Shei Crafts

Hello,
long time no blog!! This week over at www.myshericrafts.blogspot.com it is Sarah's turn to choose the challenge and she has asked us all to make a project to celebrate September the month of the piano or if not that atleast to have something musical on it.

As you can see no piano but I do have a music sheet and a cute carol singer,

 
This card is a 6x6 in kraft. I used a stamp which came free with a magazine last month by "Tiddly Inks" there were 5 stamps and a small embossing folder in the give away.
 
I used up some scraps on this card too, the music sheet is off a bit I couldn't throw away by Graphic 45 and the damask paper is a tiny bit left aswell. The snowflakes are cut from the music paper and gold paper with a small black pearl added. I coloured her in using my Promarkers.
 
Thanks for stopping by today, see what the other girls have made (some stunners) and then link up your own design.

Angels Week

Hello there,
This time over at www.myshericraft.blogspot.com it is Peachy's turn to choose and she has picked "Be an angel day" on 22 August. So for this one she would like us to have an angel on your card or project.

Here is my card

I chose this sweet "Bestie" Christmas Angel. I picked a 6x6 pearl card blank then added a sheet of striped paper. The strip down the front is a small bit I couldn't throw out from 2005 by Basic Grey. I used a SB die to cut out the snowflakes and stars. The sentiment is a stamp but who from ?! I can't remember sorry.
I coloured her in using my Promarker Pens. Everything from the Basic Grey is lifted using foam pads. Oh I also used Copics on her hair to try and make it more life like.

Now it's your turn to add your lovely to the challenge.

Onesie Time Challenge 139

Hello There,

Over at www.myshericrafts.blogspot.com this week it is my best friend Sandy's turn to pick the fun challenge and as she loves to make non traditional shaped cards that is what she has chosen for all of us to play along with. Make a card without the normal straight edges.

I have been looking at these cute little cards on quite a few sites and thought I'd give one a go. I needed to make a baby card for my friend who's daughter just had her second baby girl and thought I'd make one for Nana and Grandad too.



Here is the smaller version for Nana


The first card is made from a matt card blank and the second one is made from pearl card. Both have been run through a embossing folder and then I added the pink gingham paper cuffs which were added using pop dots then I added liquid pearls.

Thanks for stopping by today, now you give it a try.

Challenge 138..Christmas In July!

Well Hello There,
Today it is my turn to choose the theme over at www.myshericrafts.blogspot.com and as we are still in July I thought we'd do Christmas In July.  Now I always say "I am going to start early" and I can tell you I am still doing Christmas cards Christmas eve!! So lets kick start this busy time for us today. The challenge is to make a card or project for Christmas but it must have layers..the more the merrier.

Here is my card,

It is a 5x7 tent fold in navy. The fist paper is raised on foam pads after I stitched around the edge. I used Romantic Rectangles for the red and pearl white. The snowflake boarder my BF Sandy gave me and I added red gems. The snowflakes are another SB die and to those I added a button. the sentiment is a Verve stamp and then I coloured in my cute image using Promarker pens, I mounted her on top of the rectangle as if she is sitting on the embossed line.

Now it is your turn to make a start on those holiday cards. Before you do pop over to the other design team members blogs and see what beauties they have created.

Sue.
