Birthday Card

You will have to excuse the colour of the card but I struggle to take my pictures of an evening. However I wanted to get this card up tonight as I wanted to enter it into a couple of challenges.

LinkI have used the Sketch from Cards & Things. The papers are freebies. The image is a single layer from a gorgeous dog decoupage sheet. The paper was punched using an EK Success punch. The sentiment is chipboard from a fab set that I got for Christmas from my sister :-)

I have carried the theme through to the inside of the card. Will be back tomorrow with this week's Daisy Doodles card x Clare x

Pocket Easel Card

Another easel card from me today but this one has a twist. It is a pocket easel card which is just fab. I got the kit from CUP. You can see it here. I did have to manipulate it a bit in pspx so I could print off some of it on card & the rest of the bits on paper. Love the way it has turned out though x Clare x

New Year

Wow I can't believe yet another year has come & gone. I seemed to spend the whole of December making Christmas Cards & Birthday cards! As I haven't had chance to make any cards for the past week I thought I would let you see all the cards that I made & didn't have time to post up. So go grab a cup of coffee & hopefully I can inspire you for a bit :-)

This first card was created for my cousin who was 40 0n Boxing Day. The image was a freebie that I picked up & I coloured him in using Promarkers. I then found this great paper in my stash by MME. The letters & numbers were cut using my bug. Then finally I added this great stitched ribbon.This next card was a great quick & easy card made for Hubby's Boss who was 50 on Xmas Day. I made it using sheet 126451_539. Printed a sheet onto card for the main book & stand. Then created a sheet in pspx so I could print out the cars only onto paper to save on ink. Then I simply cut out, scored the stand & assembled.

My Dad asked me to make this card for his friend & neighbour who's birthday was the week of Xmas. I have used a La Pashe Flipping Men sheet & added the 40 again using my bug. I then had these great tool buttons that I added to the corners.

This card was again created for my Dad's neighbour & I used one of my favourite images "Its Hammer Time" by Hambo Stamps. I again coloured in using Promarkers & layered it onto these great retro papers.

This card is for another cousin who again has a birthday on Boxing Day. I used this image that I got as a freebie from Inklined (La Pashe) & coloured with Promarkers. I added Distress Inks to the edge f the image. Then layered it up & added a couple of gems.

Next up is another La Pashe card. This time using a Framin Card. I made the card up & just added some Star Dust Stickles to the snowflakes & snow. The Merry Christmas was then added using a HOTP sentiment. x Clare x
