Cute Dragon cards 3 and 4

Card three and I think I am starting to get there with the shading I forgot to say with the last two cards on Monday that the sentiments that come with these stamps are lovely and you could mix them with all Dragons.


Card four and I am happy with how this card has turned out. Think this is the best of the four.

Happy Mother's Day Gift Card

This project below is for the Mother's day UK or Special Lady Challenge for the Cardz 4 Galz  challenge

Here I have made this card come gift for Mother's day I have used the lovely Centura Pearl to make this look like a luxury gift. I have then matted some black card and then a pretty sheet of daisy patterned paper and then die cut a stitched edge oval in black and taped this down and then a smaller stitched edge oval in pink and stamped Happy Mother Day in Pink ink and placed foam pads onto the back to add a little dimension.  

 Now for when you open WOW chocolate what Mum doesn't like chocolate nice pink card inside and a pale pink centura pearl box bottom to place our two 100g chocolate bars. Close this and tie the bow with the lovely pale pink ribbon. I can't take all the credit for this as I followed a video by Sara from Crafters Companion this was brought with the A3 score board there are more projects I will be trying so keep a look out.

Thank you for visiting my blog happy crafting

Cute Dragon card 1 and 2

I bought the set of six Lee Holland stamps and have used then a few times but today I decided to use them with my aqua pens. I can see the shading but I want to be better but I am happy with the result.

 Card number to still not happy with the shading down the spine but I am really happy with the rest I am getting there.

Posy Box

Here I am again with my Paper Pantry cutting file volume II usb. This Is what I found the most time consuming you have to cut all your piece first and then you can put It altogether but again all instructions are on the usb. I have really loved making the projects and there are so many different boxes you can make. I haven't used any of the papers or made any of the cards but I am sure I will. This usb gave me the confidence to use my Scan and Cut after five years yes I said five years. I had used It on the odd occasion. 

This is the box in one piece.


         Here Is the box taken apart great box love It.again you could place a gift inside.

Takes a little longer and you have choices Fox, Rabbit, Owl think there maybe one or two more to choose from.
I really enjoyed making this box.

Incase you haven't seen my other posts this is done on the Scan and Cut using the Paper Pantry cutting file volume II usb.

My second Poppy card

Here is my poppies again this time I decided on a 6 x 6 base card In black and I also changed my tri blend pen colours Colours used were Dark Red Shades and Dull Green Blend. So these poppies are slightly darker. This is the same digi stamp I used for my last poppie card.


Wednesday 3 February 2021

Yet another out of my comfort zone project. I have downloaded this free digi stamp . I have to admit I had to get my husband to size it for me as I wanted it to fit on an A5 card. I have then coloured my image with my tri blend pens colours used are Citrus Green Blend and Dark Red Blend. I am really trying to get my colouring nice and to be able to see the blending I feel I haven't done to bad here. Once coloured I mounted it on to my black A5 card. I thin stamped my sentiment and matted this onto a piece on black card to and I place foam pads behind to give a little raised effect.
