Happy Birthday Granda

70th birthday card for Grandad

Sometimes the only way you can get the card you want is to make it (or have it made for you) by hand. I was asked to make a birthday card for my friends daughter to give to her Grandad who she calls Granda.

I knew that the person it was for had his own boat so asked my friend if she had a picture of it, the following card is the one I made.

I used the Cathedral Background die in coconut white card which I laid over a rich red piece with an oval cut from the center. The greeting was created on my silhouette cameo using the white sketch pen and then I used the Expressions Ornate Frame – Just Because to mount it onto the card above a strip created with the border from the Scandinavian Collection – Corner, Border & Tag

Summer of Creative Chemistry Week 1

I recently discovered Tim Holtz’s Summer of Creative Chemistry ( a bit late to the party I know) and I have been having fun creating tags from the Creative Chemistry 101

I was particularly pleased with the brushless watercolour one in the middle, done with Lisa Hortons stamps.

Here is the one I did for the challenge for week 1 which was:

Your challenge is create a tag, card, or other project using FOUR OR MORE COLORS OF DISTRESS INK.

I used Barn Door, Broken China, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Dusty Concord on my tag background and I love how it came out.

Pixie Powders with Lisa Horton stamp

I purchased all 5 sets of Lisa’s stamps from Set Craft and have made a set of cards with them. I thought I would share a step by step tutorial on how I created them.

Check out How to Create a Card Using Stamps by Lisa Horton by Angela Drummond on Snapguide.

Here is the set I created. Unfortunately I couldnt capture the shine on the backgrounds that the Pixie Powders create.
