This is a card my friend asked me to make for her mum. i miniturizes images which i then decoupaged, put into aperture cards with bubble fronts and made shaker cards.
i cut out the lettering and added some bling to the letters. finishing off with a cut out flower. which i secured together using a brad. thats a couple of cards i have made using these sorts of colours and i like them. i used to always chalk my card fronts. but the papers give quite an effect. good job too, i have hoarded sooo much paper, thought i better start using it.
these were 2 cards i made for my neighbour. her son's wife had just given Birth to their first grandchild, and i thought i would make a card for Isabella and one for her son. i decoupaged the images and made shaker cards putting the babies name inside the apeture window. these were the first baby cards i have ever made. so it was a challenge for me. at least i can say i have made a baby card now.
This is a wee craft box i made for Calvin. i have got him interested in crafting. so for his birthday i bought him a lot of craft stuff. so thought i would make him a box to put his stash in. he loved it. especially the stamps, inks scissors and gems i put inside. well thats another crafter been introduced to the club.
Happy crafting Calvin.
Happy crafting Calvin.
This is a card i made for my husbands Godson. he loves cars, so thought i would go for auto theme. the BMW is decoupaged. i also made a map of his street and put the card over the top. he loved the fact he could see his street. this was one card that was a big hit.
This is a Birhday Card i made for a friend. i decoupaged the image and used silk material printing papers to do the final segment which was the dress. i wanted the image to be tactile, and i feel i achieved this with the dress being material. the papers i used behind are the new Laura Ashley papers, which i picked up at ink spots craft store, in Hamilton in Scotland. i really wanted to use some of the paper, and although it's patterned i dont think it over powered the image. something i was afraid of. all in all i'm happy with this card.
This is a Birthday Card i was asked to make for an 80th Birthday. i started by covering a white card in this lilac, which i then matted and layered. i decoupaged a rose for the front and made some little butterflies which i stamped and embossed onto vellum. this card was quite time consuming. but enjoyable.
This is an Atc i made for a recent swap with a fellow CSF crafter, Chrissy. the theme was to be poems. and being scottish i thought it appropriate to do a Robert Burns one. the ATC folds in and is tied with tartan ribbon.
