FESTIVE FRIDAY 20

Hello, thank you for stopping by....


An 8" square white and silver themed card today

The small scene at the top right of the card was stamped and I coloured the windows with a light yellow watercolour pencil and the snowman's nose with an orange one.  For the frame around it I die cut a circle 4 times, adhered them together and glued it over the scene

I used several sizes of poinsettia dies, shaped the petals and added a pearl to the centres.  I also added small leaves and holly branches

I typed the sentiment onto white card and adhered it to the white and silver tag.  I also added mounting foam to the back of the tag

INGREDIENTS:
  • white card base ~ CraftUK
  • silver glitter ~ my stash
  • silver mirror ~ my stash
  • snowman scene ~ part of a magazine gift set
  • frame ~ Double Pierced Circular Die Set ~ Creative Expressions (CE)
  • Stitched Tag Set ~ CE
  • Poinsettia Additions Die Set ~ CE
  • Holly Branch Die Set ~ CE
  • Pearl gems ~ CE

Until tomorrow....

BIRTHDAY MINI ALBUM

Hello, thank you for stopping by....

My apologies for my recent absence all done to technical problems!!

Today's post was for a recent commission from a regular and supportive client of mine.  She sent me a selection of photographs to "do as I please" for her grandson's birthday and I decided to make a mini album

The album is 5"x7".  I created a 'concertina' spine in blue card stock to match the internal pages.  This time I didn't use both sides of each page as I thought my client may like to add a personal message about the photographs

The birthday boy loves football, I fussy cut the footballer several times to give dimension 

Naturally I can't show the individual pages as each one has a personal photograph.  I typed the headings and die cut each photograph

I also made a box using the same coloured card stock and added a decorative top to it


The card box with a decorative top

Until tomorrow....

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HARRY - CARD AND CAKE

Hi and thank you for stopping by....

It is my friend's grandson's birthday today and he asked for a Pokemon theme birthday cake, this is what I made for him as well as his birthday card

 I downloaded the Pikachu image then added the birthday greetings, the balloon is one from a gorgeous set by Elizabeth Craft Designs, well worth checking this set out

I mounted it onto blue pearlised card then onto the yellow base card, A5 size

A deep cake, (awaiting yellow ribbon for the cake drum)

The 'y' on Harry's name was purposely put at a 'jaunty' angle, I wanted to glue one of the little balls (I think they're classed as nummies or something similar) on the top of the 'y', but the little tinker would not stay put LOL

INGREDIENTS:
  • yellow card ~ Creative Expressions
  • blue pearlised card ~ Crafter's Companion
  • Balloon Die Set ~ Elizabeth Craft Designs 1393 - Balloons


Until tomorrow....
