Birthday Flowers

Birthday flowers card

Have you ever had one of those moments when you think, “I’m really not sure if I like this or not”? Well that is how I felt when I finished this card. The greeting and doily in the middle are two of the first things I cut with my new cutting machine. I decided to cover the greeting with 3D glaze and I think that is possibly why I am unsure about it.

I decided that my card would also use an image from a new talented digital stamp artist I have discovered, there are only a few stamps at the moment but I am looking forward to watching that amount grow. You can find the stamps at Alicia’s little shop and if you use one of them, why not enter it into her challenge for a chance to win an awesome prize of 10 Copic Sketch pens!

Brush Strokes in the Wild Elephant

Elephant Group from Brush strokes in the wild cd

Whilst at the SECC I picked up the Brush Strokes in the Wild CD from Card Creations Plus and here is one of the sample cards I made for Nigel to take to the NEC. The art work on this cd is just stunning, Stan Kaminski is a very talented artist and it is great to be able to use his creations. I used the Elephant group from the CD and printed them onto Print It Decoupage paper (it prints out great every time) although you cant see it very well, the elephants are decoupaged up.

Creative Expressions DT call

Shapes Card with texture

Whilst trawling the net for different things this morning I came across this call by Creative Expressions, I would dearly love to be part of their team as the stamps are such good quality and so varied. The DT entry calls for a challenge card to be made which includes texture and a stamp.

My card, as you can imagine at such short notice, is a little basic but the stamp is a Personal Impressions greeting stamp embossed with gold embossing powder. The girl is made from basic shapes cut with spellbinders circles and ovals, embossed with embossing folders (swiss dots and Boofle) and edged with Vintage Photo Distress ink. For extra texture I added the bakers twine and the lucky coin(Papermania)

How time flies!!

Where does it go I wonder, it only seems like yesterday that we were bringing home this tiny bundle of a boy who would change our lives forever. The first of our 2 sons was born 9 years ago today and he’s growing up so quickly.

Here he is just a month ago with his cheeky grin!

and here is the birthday card I made for him using the Wellington Ultimate Decoupage pack from DoCrafts

This is my DT inspiration card this week over at The Crafty Bloggers Network Blog – Don’t forget our DT call ends next week!
