Splish Splash!

Over at its another week to start a new challenge. This time it is the turn over owner Sheri to pick the theme and its going to be's one of beach time. So think waves, sand, swimming etc.

Here is my card, it uses Graphic 45 papers and I made it for my Uncle who lives right by the sea in Llandudno North Wales and can see the sea from his lounge window.

The card is 7x7 so I could get as much stuff on it as possible lol. I fussy cut the shells and layered. The post card and light house are from another sheet of images which I matted then layered. The stamp is from Verve. I used 2 embossing folders on this card too.
Now its your turn to give it a go.

Silver wedding card

Just thought I'd stop by and share this card I made for my friend to give her Sister and Brother in Law in June who are celebrating their 25th anniversary. When we were out last she was looking for a suitable card for them but couldn't find one so I offered to make one for her, sure hope she likes it!

I used my heart stamp by Chloe (I just love it) along with her WOW embossing powder. I also stamped out several flowers and leaves which I cut out and layered up. Several different papers used from my stash and a satin ribbon bow with a beaded pin.

The card 7x7 and here is a front on shot.


Thanks for looking in today.

My Sheri Crafts Challenge 157

Hello there,
This time over at it is Glenda's turn to choose the theme and she has picked one of Graduation. As I have no one graduating I have chosen to make a card that could be good for someone starting a new career or adventure.

My card is a 7x7 using papers from my stash along with Verve stamps from 3 different sets and 2 of their dies.

I embossed the 2 triangles using swiss dots and lifted them on foam pads. I stamped the butterflies twice once on white card and the next on the pattern paper, I lifted the wings. A few gems add extra interest along with a pretty bow.

Now its your turn to join in, check out the rest of the design teams makes first though and leave some words.

Viva La Verve May sketch #1

Good Morning,
I had so much fun making a couple of cards for last months challenge I decided to carry on in to this month.
Here is my card for this weeks sketch
This is a large A5 card which I matted the music paper on to a co ordinating cardstock then stitched around before I placed down using foam pads. The other two papers are Basic Grey. I printed the sentiment and cut out using Spellbinders dies. I added the lace and a bow but felt it needed more so out came my lovely heart banner, gems and clear sequins. I finished off with dotting the hearts from the banner about.
Thanks for looking in today.

Mojo 396

I was asked to make a birthday card and I was looking at my sketches and decided to join in with this weeks Mojo challenge.
Here is what I made.
I used a A5 card as it had to big, then I used a Basic Grey paper I had in my stash. The music paper matched quite well with it but afraid I can't remember who its from. The circle I cut to make sure you could see the opposite pattern. The sentiment I typed and the butterflies are Verve Sidekick which I stamped twice and lifted the top one on each. A few gems and sequins just finished it off.

Birthday Bash Challenge 156 @ MSC

Hello Again,
Well this time over at it is Marge's turn to choose the theme and this time around she has come up with a nice easy one of Birthday Bash. Yes all you have to do is make a Birthday card, however it must include a matching envelope.

Here is what I came up with,

This time I decided to make a card for a guy as they can be hard to do and lets face it we always need them too.
My card is 5x5 I have used 2 papers from a DCWV mat stack paper pad I've had for years along with 2 new stamps I picked up at a craft show. The center pint pot has a second layer which you may not see from here. The sentiment is from the set too. I used a little ribbon and a couple of screw head brads just to "man" it up a bit. For the envelope I just stamped the image randomly around the edge and on the back flap allowing space for the address to be written, along with a little inking too.

Here is the card on its own

Now it's your turn to join in with the fun but don't forget the envelope.
