CONTINUING THE THEME - THURSDAY'S CARD

HELLO & WELCOME TO THE NEW

POPPYFIELD CARD CRAFT'S BLOG

thankfully we are back again but we have had to create a new blog.  I've kept the same background etc and it would make me so happy if you will join me once again as well as hitting the 'follow' button that is displayed above left of this heading 

I am hoping to 'catch up' with posts since my last one on Monday.  There will be a 'give-away' card posted either later today or by tomorrow



This week has proved to be quite draining and a tad upsetting to see my 'original' blog on screen but not being able to access it, due to a technical error, plus spending many hours attempting to rectify the situation to no avail

I didn't want to leave my beautiful niece out of the new baby celebrations, she is Lewis's auntie, so I made this easy card especially for her

I started with a 4" square white card base and typed the sentiment.  Then die cut and embossed the heart and to finalise the card front added the 'sweet baby' to the top right corner

A personal verse was added to complete the card and Laura, my niece, told me she loved it 


















INGREDIENTS:
  • White card ~ Papermill Direct
  • Heart die ~ Crafter's Companion
  • Sweet baby accessory ~ my stash

Until later....

This would have been  'Wednesday's' card, there's still more to show for the arrival of the new baby!

I made this to give to my brother and sister in law and Susan tells me it's taking pride of place on their mantle piece :) 

I started with an A4 white card base and typed the sentiment  then scored the card to A5

I added the strip of blue paper as shown and from my 'baby pieces container' retrieved and used all the elements you see on the card.  I just love the little pom poms on the socks

I used a corner punch only on the front corners of the card and, again, added a personal verse














INGREDIENTS:
  • White card ~ Papermill Direct
  • Pretty blue paper and all accessories ~ my stash
  • Corner punch ~ Woodware
Until later....

FROM THE ORIGINAL POPPYFIELD CARD CRAFT'S BLOG TO THE NEW ONE - TUESDAY'S CARD

HELLO & WELCOME TO THE NEW

POPPYFIELD CARD CRAFT'S BLOG

thankfully we are back again but we have had to create a new blog.  I've kept the same background etc and it would make me so happy if you will join me once again as well as hitting the 'follow' button that is displayed above left of this heading

So here we are again, starting from scratch  

On a very happy note there has been an addition to our family this week.  My nephew, Adam and his partner, Amy, had a gorgeous little boy on Sunday, their first baby and first grandchild for my brother and sister in law.  We are going to visit the happy couple later today.... actually we all know it's the baby we're wanting to see LOL

This is the card, commissioned by my sister in law to give to the delighted new parents and would have been Tuesday's card on my original blog

It's an 8" square ivory card base, I added a smaller panel of white card that I embossed 

From the shadow box collection I die cut and embossed the frame in blue card as well as the larger frame in ivory card

With the exception of the die cut hearts all the other elements are from the various accessories pertaining to the new arrival/shadow box collection
A personal verse was also added to the card






INGREDIENTS:
  • Ivory card ~ Craft UK
  • White card ~ Papermill Direct
  • Stitched Lattice Frames ~ Shadow Box Collection/Creative Expressions (CE) CED9303
  • 'Love Hearts' Embossing Folder ~ EF079
  • It's A Boy ~ New Arrival/CE CED10022
  • Little Treasures ~ New Arrival/CE CED9308
