Thanks Card using Sue Wilson dies

Well here I am again, ages since my last post but a lot has been happening around here. Both of our boys have started to surf over the summer largely thanks to NAS Moray and Nairn. Number one son has made the huge transition to secondary school. Thankfully the support is SO much better than his primary school and he is doing quite well.

As you can imagine, with all this going on, I haven’t really had much time to craft. I have manage to make a card this weekend for the fab staff in the canteen at the academy as they have been brilliant in helping out with number one son being able to get lunch that he likes to eat.

The finished card size is 7 1/4″ square

Teacher gift

Today I am sharing with you this cute teacher gift for Phillip’s P6 teacher who he said has been the “best teacher ever”. I cut the file for the box on my silhouette along with the pinwheels and the name for the chocolate bar.

I got the idea for it from Deann’s video class over at Ginas Designs

Every teacher needs chocolate right?

Art journal Finnabair style

I decided to follow the video in the Gina’s designs newsletter and make an art journal page. I prep aired the page first by coating it with gesso and once dry, I used Radiant Rain sprays to give some colour to the background. I had some flowers and butterflies in colours that I would never have used so they were great for this project.

Large Birthday Card

Do you ever get started on making a card and it all grows out of control? Thats exactly what happened with my Mum’s borthday card this year. I started out with the new Celtic Dreams collectable die set and cut out 6 of the diamonds, before I realised it the size of the card was 9 inches square!

Mothers Day 2015

As some of you may know, a few years ago I got my Mum into making cards so now when I make her a card I have to try and make one that she hasnt seen before. I am finding this increasingly more dificult as the years go by!

Here is the card I made for this years mothers day

I used tonic dies and the Sue wilson Cornflower die

Get Well Soon with tonic

Today I am sharing a get well card I made with my Tonic dies:

GetWell with tonic

 

Tangled chocolate

Today I have another project made using the the autumn poppy stamp set from Chocolate Baroque. This time I used my love of Zentangle to make a card:

I stamped the image with Archival black ink and then sat and tangled the open spaces

I cut the image out and matted on black card. I then cut a piece of white card to fit my card base, stamped the edge with black ink and then embossed it with clear embossing powder (this helps if you get extra spots as you don’t see them).

To finish I matted and layered the pieces and used mounting foam to give more dimension to the main image.

Why not pop over to the Chocolate Baroque blog and see what the design team have done with this fab stamp set.
