Mum’s Birthday Card

It was my Mum’s Birthday recently and this was her card.


My Mum, like me, loves scrapbooking and I have come to learn that anything she receives will rapidly be taken apart and will ultimately appear in a scrapbook soon.  With this in mind, I decided to make her card made up of lots of little elements.


I love to make ATCs so this was wonderfully fun to do.  I started by cutting lots of small rectangles out of coordinating shades of pink from my scrap box.  I then went about decorating them in as many different techniques as I could, including Shrink Plastic, stamping, die cutting, clay, embossing, wire & beading work and ribbon.



My little boy turned 9 years old.

I would also like to share a card I made for my little boy.  He loves Star Wars and he loves Angry Birds!

This is a totally over-the-top card, measuring A3 in size, which is destined to be framed and go on his wall…but he loved it!



All for now.




Happy Fathers Day

I would like to share my Dad’s Fathers Day card.


I started with a filmstrip stamp I have in my collection and stamped in an olive green ink and masked across the card to make 7 blocks.

In each block I stamped a letter in white embossing powder and then masking the outside of the filmstrip filled in each section with a different stamp, all on a vintage/travel theme using the same inkpad as the filmstrip.  Pulling some ink from the edges gives each image some depth.

The HAPPY and DAY are simply stamped onto waste card and cut randomly, then edged with the same inkpad to finish.

I layered onto a coordinating coloured card and finished the edging with some pen detail.


All for now.

P.S. I will be back soon with my Mum’s Birthday card …. June is a very busy month for me!
