2nd Male card

This card was for my SIL's Birthday, another LOTV's image.
The papers are papermania Secret garden and the stamp set is Clare Curd's boys set.
The beer has been frothed with Tulip puffy in white and heated. The hessian is my own....
The sentiment 'HB' is computer generated. The image is distressed with Old paper ink by Tim Holtz.
Hope you like it!

First of 3 male cards

A Birthday Card....
This is an LOTV image, distressed and chalked in grey.
The papers are the lovely Kioshi in two greens and a plain green card for the matting and picture mounts which I made. There is also grey card on which the image sits!.
The sentiment I believe came from Ikki's blog as I had saved it with her name on!!.
Hope you like it!

Will she say yes!!

This card took ages as I faffed about the colours I am still not happy with the wall it should not be so orange but I have at least made an easel card;... my first.

I chose the LOTV stamp as my son was proposing on their holiday abroad and he had the ring with him....good job customs never looked in his case or the cat would have been out of the bag..so to speak!!...So not flowers or on a wall, OOpps not glasses either!!...but can you see where I'm going with this!!

My son does have dark hair and she is fair so good reason eh!!

My minds eye was used for the paper pieced hat set at a slight angle and for the bottom and middle which was punched with Martha Stewart's doily lace punch.
The boy's hair is decoupaged and the stamped image was coloured with copics, promarkers,polychromos and sandsodor....never can make up my mind!!!

Framing the stamp is brown card using nesties labels 2 dies, Pearls, lace, stickles and 3D gloss for the glasses. The letters are cuttlebugged with curls and swirls and baby face die.There is so much to write!!!! I will leave with a close up of the glasses!! Hope you like it an enjoy my muddling post!!.....especially as the close up is not here it's at the top ( I think!!).

I hate this blogging I've already uploaded this and lost it all due to one click too many!!!
Anyway as I said before I made a horseshoe out of fabric, ribbon for handle and made roses, gathered up some lace to add to the outer edge, also added beads.
The two cards are die cut Lilli of the valley, 'wedding couple', punched leaves and flowers with diamante added together with brads velum and embossed sheen card.
These were made for Family and a friend.

I hope you like them as I enjoyed making them.x

At last a little time to blog

Here is a birthday card made from photo copied material. I love this material it has fairies on it but here I just cut out a border of flowers and some single ones.( I hope you understand that it is paper, now that I have photo copied it, I also hope it's legal!!!!)
The butterflies have pearl centres and the white card has been embossed with crafts-Too Daisy folder.Beads of green, lilac and clear have been glued to the centre of the flowers. The sentiment is a glitter peel off.
Hope you like it!!

I found and bought this digi image....... ( www.bugaboostamps.com ) whilst browsing the web which I have made into a birthday card for my son's girlfriend. I hope she will see it as funny as am NOT suggesting she is a lush!!!

I used copic and promarkers to colour the image, glitter stars and hearts and shreds of glitter for the drink, ribbon from stash, and the jewel was sewn onto bow. The floor was brown textured card matted onto dark glitter card. The ink PM orange was applied to the outer edges of the image. The background candle paper was cricut beyond birthdays provo craft.
Hope that is everything and that you like it.

A simple white card!

This card is simply stated for a friend.

I used 6x6 linen card-stock topped with white card which was cuttlebugged using the distressed stripe embossing folder.

The sentiment is computer generated and the tag holding it has been Smooch spritzed.
Lily flowers have been tied with a satin ribbon and backed with white net.
Both tags have been given a sheen with cosmic shimmer in enchanted lilac.
Mega nesties curved rectangle was used to die cut the tags which have been mounted on foam 3D pads.
I hope you like it.....

It is my Grandson's 7th birthday today and I made this card for him.

I used sequin waste and laminated it for the bottom section of the card. Beneath the sequin waste is torn vellum and the paper above it is crimped PM amethyst infusion. The stamp is Oakley in bath tub by WOJ and die cut with nestabilities labels 2.
The colours are copics and the white stamped card was originally sprayed with cosmic shimmers.
I have used beads and sticklers crystal to highlight the bubbles.
I thought it turned out quite well and I hope you like it too!!.
