HELLO KITTY & CARD WINNER

Good morning blogger friends....

Well, 1 December!  Where have the past 11 months gone?  I think it still should be April/May LOL


I came across these photos that were taken quite sometime ago, (I'm talking several years at least) a friend's little girl, also called Kitty,  asked me if I would make her some 'Hello Kitty' cards to send to her daddy, as he worked away.  I was only too pleased I had a pack of embellishments to make her the cards!  

Kitty loved them and I'm sure her daddy did too




Now for the card winner:

FESTIVE FRIDAY 44 - GUESS WHAT.... ANOTHER WREATH

Red and gold baubles with tucks of gold, sparkly tulle

This wreath is hanging in our hall.  I had to use hot glue to keep the baubles in place and added a pretty red ribbon for it to hang


Craftwork Cards produce gorgeous papers as well as these toppers, the quality is excellent

You know the drill, leave a comment on today's post (you have until 6pm Saturday) and the winner will be announced on Sunday's blog

TECHNIQUE TUESDAY - FLIP FLAP CARD

Hello blogger friends....








 I used teal card measuring 41/4" x 11" and scored this at 51/2" and 23/4"




Use a die shape of your choice.  I think this set is by Spellbinders but I'm not 100% certain

Place the die on your card front and secure

Only place your cutting mat so that it will die cut half on the left side.  I placed mine just below the centre points


You will now see your score line but, if you use a detailed embossing folder you then won't be able to see it

I used a Spellbinders EL-021 and embossed using the inside design



Hold your card at the spine then gently 'flip' the other end to enable the 'flap' to show on the inside











Like so



I used the next 2 smaller dies, from the same set, for the front panels and used white card and a kind of sage green paper



The stamp set is by Creative Expressions, 'Amazing Sentiments' and I used StazOn in Jet Black for the inking


I positioned my verse behind the 'flip flap' so that you couldn't see it until the card was opened

I hope you want to give this a try!

Until tomorrow....

MAN MONDAY - WINTER CAS CARD

Good morning blogger friends....

I started with a 4"x6" white card base (I'm really liking these smaller card sizes!) and added a slightly smaller white panel to it.  I did add mounting foam to this panel

On another piece of white card I stamped the image by John Lockwood (JND) from the latest edition of 'Creative Stamping' Magazine, using a NUVO Hybrid ink in 'metro grey'

I used only two distress oxides for the colouring, 'candid apple' and 'walnut stain', adding more water to the ink when I needed a paler colour

I die cut a frame four times and glued these together.  Added it over the image and removed any excess card 

The sentiment was also stamped with 'metro grey' ink, onto white card and this was added to a piece of kraft card

For the inside of the card I used kraft card and white cardstock plus the same stamps that are on the card front, with an extra stamp from the same stamp set

These were also stamped in 'metro grey'



Until tomorrow....
