Another Felt Flower Card

Wednesday, 31 August 2011

I've been and bought some more felt so I could make some more of these flowers. They are so easy especially if you have a Cuttlebug or similar, but they are just as easy to do by hand. No die for the leaves, so these are hand cut.

Felt Flower 1

Materials used - A6 card blank, Cuttlebug plus Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die, Echo Park Summer Days paper pad, Kaisercraft Script stamp, Fiskars Bracket border punch, Versamagic white chalk ink, Rub on sentiment, Felt, Button and Twine.

Here's a card I made for our friend Martin who's joined the 50 club today. He's not bothered about it at all, but after a bit of persuasion from his wife, we are going to celebrate with him on Saturday. Cheers Martin.

I've just finished my 1st week at my new job at Waitrose. Everyone is so nice and helpful. The problem is, they sell really yummy food, so I can see my purse will be emptied very quickly. Far to many temptations!!

Plain and simple Anniversary card for today with lots of white space.

4 Hearts
Materials used - A6 card blank, Basic Grey Ambrosia papers, Fiskars Sentiment border punch, Dovecraft sentiment stamp, Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Heart punch, Gem and Ribbon.

Life's a Picnic

Thursday, 18 August 2011

I made this card for my lovely hubbys birthday, which was a couple of weeks ago now. We had a great day, celebrating with a friends and family. The photo was taken on a recent holiday to France where, you've guessed it, we stopped for a picnic.

Less is More - One Layer Ink

Wednesday, 17 August 2011

I always find the one layer cards over at Less is More hard to do as I have to hold back the urge to add ribbons, buttons, gems etc. I masked off the edges of the card with torn strips of paper. Then using some scrap sponge I lightly inked the edge inside the border. I stamped some flowers, then using a gel pen I popped some dots in the middle of the flowers and added a sentiment. I think I would make the white border smaller next time. It was a nightmare trying to get a photo of this card as the colours are so soft.

One Layer Ink

Materials used - White square card bank, Hero Arts Patterned Flowers stamp, Woodware Janes Script stamp, Versamagic assorted chalk inks, Memento Rich Cocoa Ink and Brown gel pen.

It's amazing what's on your doorstop.

Roger got a great cycle ride book for his birthday. Some we had done before but others are new. The ride we choose yesterday, went right from outside our front door, to West Stoke, Funtington, Westbourne, Emsworth, Bosham and back home. But we got side-tracked. When we got to Prinstead we saw a coastal path that looked interesting, so decided to take a detour. It was just fantastic, we followed the path all the way around the coast to Bosham. We didn't even know this path was there and will definitely ride it again. It was just so lovely, the scenery, the weather and it was so peaceful. But, we still have half of the map to do, as we missed it out completely!!

Summer Days

Friday, 5 August 2011

Blimey, where did that week go and I haven't posted a thing. The weather here has just been so lovely the last few days, that I've been cycling and pottering in the garden, so not much has happened in the card making department. But yesterday it just bucketed down with rain, so to brighten the day I made this paper pieced card using the summer papers from Echo Park.


Materials used - Square card blank,Cuttlebug plus Oval dies and Quickutz Polka Dot embossing folder, Hero Arts Girls stamps, Echo Park Summer Days paper pad, Woodware Janes Script clear stamp, Promarkers, Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and Flower Gems.
