Caron's Birthday Card

This card I made for my daughter Caron's birthday next week (its okay she doesnt look at my blog!). There are instructions for the template for this shaped card on Stampartic, in fact there are 3 very interesting shaped cards on there, check it out.

The flower is made by punching three different sized retro flowers, cutting down the petals and pulling the bits upwards.

Spring Tilda

Methinks this little lady should be renamed Summer Tilda considering all the rain we are having in the UK at the moment! Still, not as bad as we had last 'summer' at least we have a bit more sunshine (between showers) and its quite warm most days.

Stamp: Magnolia Spring Tilda
Background Card: Core-dinations Whitewash Collection
Nestie Ovals
Tilda coloured with Prisma pencils

AJ's Christening Card

My great-nephew Aiden Jack (AJ) was christened today, we had a lovely day and he was as good as gold throughout the ceremony, although he wasn't impressed when the vicar poured water on his head! He didn't cry though bless him.

This is the card I made for his christening and of course I just had to use one of my new Whiff of Joy Womens Delight stamps!

I intended to move the teddy charm to one side before I took the photo as its obscuring the sentiment but I was in such a hurry to photo it before I took the card with me this morning!

Whiff of Joy Baby Girl

Another baby card, not for anyone in particular, I just wanted to make a card using one of the new gorgeous Whiff of Joy Womens Delight Wedding & Baby Collection stamps!

I tried using the 'Out of the Nestie' technique and it worked brilliantly, I think it just gives a bit of dimension to the card. If you fancy having a go at this technique have a peek at this tutorial, its so easy to follow.
