Birthday card for mum.

Friday, December 30, 2011

I hope you all had a great Christmas and are looking forward to the new year. I had a good Christmas and definitely hope next year is good.

My Mum's birthday was on the 20th of December and as it's so close to Christmas I nearly forgot all about it.

We decided to buy her an apron for her birthday, as she had mentioned she couldn't find hers, and then she would get the rest of her presents on Christmas day.

This is the card that I made her.

Paper - Cosmo Crickets DeLovely.
Stamp - Amy R Best Birthday wishes.
Punches - Martha Stewart Classic butterfly, 
3 in 1 butterfly punch and Doily Lace punch.
Heart and large butterfly - templates.
Twine - The Ribbon Reel.
Glitter - Stickles.

Merry Christmas.

'fabulous' purple butterflies and flowers card

Tuesday, December 13, 2011

So Hollie has one week left at nursery and then she is off for two weeks. So I have been thinking of the things that she can make to keep her busy. We have some pom poms, googly eyes, pipe cleaners, beads etc, it could be interesting. 

For this card I decided to do some layering of paper and card on this card as I think it shows off the patterned paper more. The sentiment is actually made from 4 phrases from the My Pink Stamper's Fabulous Phrases stamps. There are many different styles and sizes of stamps in this set but can be mixed to make a new sentiment.

As the patterned paper is quite busy already, I decided to just add a few butterflies and a flower with gems and some simple cream ribbon.

Paper - Basic Grey Kioshi.
Stamp - My Pink Stamper Fabulous Phrases.
Punches - Martha Stewart Starburst, 3in1 classic butterfly and Monarch Butterfly.
EK Success - flower.
Ribbon and gems - Local craft shop.

Simple beaded butterfly card

Friday, December 02, 2011

So it's December. I am gradually getting things ticked off my Christmas gift list and have been making gifts too. I figured that teenagers (and adults) tend to just get themselves what they want when they want and so I would make presents for a lot of the females on my list. This involves cards, gift tags, notebooks etc. I did this last year and decided to do it again this year. I'm sure I will show what I've made soon.

For today's card, I drew around a butterfly template to create the butterflies and decided to add some beads on some thread to the centre of each butterfly. I decided to keep the background plain but added a lined border and a dashed line on the butterflies to make it less plain.

Paper - Basic Grey Lemonade.
Stamp - My Pink Stamper Fabulous Phrases.
Twine - Ribbon Reel.
Beads - Local craft shop.
