Lego Card

Today I have a card for a young boy. Pretty sure that all little boys love lego....even the big ones.

This card was inspired by the many cards that I saw on Pinterest.

It was quick an easy card to make.

Golf Card

Today, I have a golf card to share with you. The image that I have used is a 3d decoupage one. I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder for the white background.



Love the way that it has turned out.

Male Cards


Over the next few days, I'll be sharing with you a series of male cards. I find these types of cards really hard to make.

For this card I used a 3d image that I purchased from a cheap shop. It might be plain, but I like the way that the fish appears to be jumping off the card.

Colour Bingo Swap - Card 2

Here's the other card that I made for the Craft Mad July swap.

To recap what we had to do - we had to choose the colours we wanted to use on two cards from the colour bingo card.  Each card can use a different combo of colours but they have to be three horizontal, or three vertical or three on the diagonal just like tic tac toe.


For this card, the colours I chose were Blue, Purple and Pink.

New Dies....

I recently received some new dies, one of them was the wedding border die, that I used on this card. I new instantly that I wanted to use gold glitter card for the die cutting. I added a die cut "Congrats" to the top of this card.

Today, I want to share with you 3 Decorative Corner Cards. I found the original tutorial for this card here. I thought it would be a hard card to make, it's quite easy.

Here is a wedding card that I made using the tutorial.

Below are 2 other versions of this style of card.

Washi Tape

Do you have washi tape in your stash, and never use it? Well I know that I do.

I had to make a card in a group I'm in using a sketch, and we had to use either washi tape or patterned paper and add 3 embellishments and a sentiment on it.

This is the sketch that we had to use.
This is what I came up with, I used washi tape on my card. Washi tape is so versatile.

Meerkats

Today I have 4 cards to share with you - a few months ago I purchased some Meerkat paper tole sheets in a mystery pack. When I saw them, I had no idea if I was going to use them or not.

Well I did, and the following is what I came up with.

Back again....

Hello everyone, I'm back again after a short break from blogging. I was spending quality time with my family, as well as working on a few projects, that I'm hoping to be able to share with you all in the coming weeks.

Today I have a tip to share with you - it's not my idea, I saw it on Dawn's Stamping Thoughts. She used an acrylic photo frame to hold acrylic stamps when she isn't using the stamps. I thought this was a great idea. Don't know about you, but I know I can sometimes loose my stamps.

So off I went to our local shops, must admit had trouble locating the frames, found one at our cheap shop. It was a bit bigger than what I wanted, but that's okay. I also had this brain wave - why don't I add a magnet panel to the base of the frame, that way I could also put any of the dies that I'm working with on it.

When I got home, I added the magnetic panel to the base of the frame. I also added a piece of chipboard to the back of the frame to give it a bit more stability.



Hope you find this tip useful.
