Just a Note ...

Sometimes we need "general" cards, so I made these with that in mind:

Wedding Anniversary, 21st & Kiddies Cards

These 2 cards are the rest of the 5 cards order I had recently:

Before starting this card, I had it in my head, as I wanted it. I was sure I had Tim Holtz numbers in grungeboard, and when I went looking for them I realised that I have an alphabet and shapes set, no numbers ! but I wanted thick/chipboard numbers. So I cut them with the craft robo, stuck them to a piece of chipboard and proceeded to cut them !! I defo will be getting the grungeboard numbers in the future !!
The backing papers is actually Papermania x-mas paper, but I think the colours are not christmasey anyway.

Quilt blanket made with blue Paper of the world !! The sentiment is from Papertrey.

We have some birthdays coming up, so it was a good excuse to make some kiddies cards and to use my new Hello Kitty die. The "Pirate" dies are for the cuttlebug, or the cuttlekids (is that the name? cant remember).

Birthday Cards

I was asked by one of my clients to make a few cards, I have still 2 more to finish. But here are the first 3:

For her Mother in Law:

Papers & tag are K & CO. Im loving the white wash core'dinations !! (behind tag)

This one is for her daughter, who drives a yellow motorbike:

Stamp is or course a bella :o) I coloured her with promarkers and Twinklings H20, papers are My Mind's Eye.

And this one is for a cousin:

Papers are Prima, tag is 7 Gypsies, and the glittery butterfly is a Martha Stewart stamp, which I coloured in with Anita's 3D Clear Gloss Finish (same as glossy accents)using a technique I saw in Amy Risavy's blog (Card inspired by Amy's card).

I was asking Amy if she had tried stickles, since I thought it would have the same effect, and would be quicker to apply (not that it makes a difference really). She was saying that stickles is glitter with glue and applying glitter to glossy accents would give a deeper glitter coverage. I tried both, and initially I liked the stickles butterfly better, but then changed my mind once the glossy accents one was dried, looks more glittery, besides, the stickles one is still wet!.
