Baby

Baptism card

Tuesday, January 30, 2018

On Sunday I became a godmother! The greatest of honours, especially to such a delightful baby as my goddaughter.  I wanted an extra special, one of a kind card for her to keep along with her other cards as a memento of this occasion.   I spent hours, literally hours, on a design I had in mind but just could not get it right.  Eventually I scrapped it and started over.  I spent a moment looking at the "baptism" stamp in the Inspired Events set and realised it was so beautiful I had to make it the star.  And so this card was born.


Do you recognise the background stamp on the Basic Grey?  That's right, it's the Watercolour Wash background stamp which I inked up in Versmark and stamped onto the cardstock to get a slightly stamped effect.


To allow the sentiment to really stand out as the focus of this card I embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Then I complemented this shine with some silver Metalic Enamel Shapes.

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Rose Coleman

Sunday, January 28, 2018


Do you know the lovely Rose Coleman?  She's a Canadian demonstrator with lots of flare and today the Crazy Crafters are CASEing (Copy and Selective Edit) her for our regular blog hop.

Firstly, here's Rose's card that I've chosen to CASE:


And here is my take on her card using the Fruit Basket stamp set and colourful DSP:


I think the Fruit Basket suite is one of my favourite to date. It's so bright and versatile.


It doesn't take much to jazz up a card when the DSP is this much fun already!


Now pop over and see what everyone else has chosen to CASE for this blog hop:

Birthday

Hip Hip Hooray It's Your Birthday

Who else wasn't much of a fan of Lemon Lime twist when it was first released?  I have come to really love it.  I think the secret is in the pairing with other colours.  It just complements the Fresh Fig in this card perfectly and makes for one very bright and cheery birthday card.


And yes, I fussy cut that pom pom!

Friendship

Hooray for Today

Wednesday, January 24, 2018

In my last blog post I told you about my team's crafternoon and I promised to share with you the cards I made for each of them.  It's super fun to make cards for other crafters and they just loved these.


The Whisper White ink looks so great on the Basic Grey cardstock and the hearts provide a burst of happy colour.


I ran the die from the Umbrella Weather framelits through my Big Shot with a few different coloured sheets of cardstock to get the little hearts and then painstakingly glued them on individually. 


The sentiment is from the Greatest Greetings stamp set which I've only just discovered is retired, oops!  I have moved it to my "to sell" pile so that I don't accidentally use it again.  Of course, you can use any sentiment you like there.
