Cocktail Table Names - Charity Event!

One of my regular customers asked me to make up some table names for a charity event she was hosting for CLAN. I knew exactly how I wanted them to look so set to making them up. They are approximately 7x7 inches and are double sided. Both sides are identical. 











And these are photos from my customer: 




Love it!! 

Thats all from me today!

Forgotten Funky - Steam Funk

Morning all, time for this months Forgotten Funky. This month we are all ysing the fabulous 'Steam Funk' download. Now these are really not my style of crafting but I am very impressed with how lovely and versatile the papers are! I dug out my old Moustache die and made this ... 




The papers are obviously from the Steam Funk download, I printed 4 different ones in a small size on the one sheet, layered them all up and stuck my moustaches on 3d pads. The sentiment is also a funky hand one and comes as part of the Betty stamps. 

Thats all for me today!

Fabulous blooms thankyou - pink

Morning all, back to share another card. This one was one I made a while back for Maddisons rainbow teachers when she left. I did 3 in the same style, the purple one I shared a while back and the yellow one I also shared even longer ago! I love how they turned out. The image is from Ladybug Crafts Ink and is part of the fabulous blooms. Coloured up in copics, a whole heap of glitter thrown at it and some pearls added to the centre of some of the flowers! 



Thats all for today. Back tomorrow!

The bowls are actually quite big and I filled them with werthers, twix, and ferrero rocher. I added a rainbow scratch card and a note inside with a fimo rainbow. All cello wrapped with a big gold bow!

Thankyou - Fabulous Blooms purple

Morning all, back to share a card I made a while back for the rainbows leaders. Maddison finished up and will hopefully become part of brownies now she has finished at rainbows. I wanted something that I could keep the same but different colours for the 3 leaders. I used Vase o Blooms from Ladybug Crafts Ink. I coloured it up with copics, added lots of glamour dust and WOS pen to the flowers as well as a few pearls. The paper is from an older first edition pad and the ribbon is one of the christmas wrap ribbons from Marks & Spencer sale! 



Thats all for today!

London!!

Morning all, back to share a card I made a while back. The lady who ordered it gave me a couple of ideas to work with for a card for her hubbys birthday. I had 3 cards to make and knew he was a football coach. The run down was football and loves london ... so I made a football card from his MIL (willl show this another time) and I set to work making something different using a Nitwits kit! I made a Z shape card, something I have never done before. I printed out papers and images from the kit and embellished slightly. 





She loved it! 

Thats all for today!

To a very Special Bride & Groom

Morning all, back again to share another card. Todays card is one of 4 I made up a short while back and every single one sold within days! I used the image and papers from Nitwits kit called With this ribg. I love the colours on this one (well apart from the pink!) or maybe what I actually mean is I love how the colours work together! The sentiment is a MFT stamp and the ribbon and flowers were from my stash. 



Thats all for today!

Have a wonderful Day

Morning all, todays card is a recent order. I treated myself to a couple of the Hobbyhouse kits just so I had a bit of a change. The kits arrived and whilst they are nice I wasn't too impressed with the selection inside the kits. To make the cards using a similar layout to the sheet provided there wasn't enough patterned papers and the embellishments that were included again was minimal. At least I know not to purchase again! 

Anyway I used bits from the kit to create this card so I cant advise on the brand of papers. The topper obviously is hobbyhouse and the sentiment was also part of the kit. 



Thats all for today!

Best Wishes Bear

Morning all, back to share another card! Todays card is one I made a short while back! I love bears on cards but I just can't colour them properly, this is one of my better attempts! The image is LOTV, and the papers are MME I think? I used MFT blueprints for the layout and the sentiment is stampin Up! 



Thats all for today! Back tomorrow! 

P.S First day back at school today! eek!

Welcome to the world ...

Morning all. back to share another card. I made this one a short while ago and the customer asked for a simple baby card with this sentiment. I dug out my hobby house toppers and matched them with papers from Simple Stories which seemed to match perfectly. I added a soohickey border and some resins (I bought these but when I use them they never look right, this is one of the first times I have managed to get them to look right!) The sentiment is computer generated and the charm is from my stash! 



Thats all for today!

Happy Anniversary

Morning all, just popping by to share another card. This one was a special request. She wanted an anniversary card and I knew just the kit! The kit is from Paper creator although rather than just a normal card I made an easel card. I decoupaged the image 4 times (boy that was tiring!!) and added glitter and glossy accents to the heart in the middle. Excuse the rubbish photos!! 



Thats all for today!

Thanks Coach!

Morning all. Back to share another card. Todays card was a special request, a card for the football coach, in red and black stripes and a larger card (8x8) Well that put me out of my comfort zone straight away. My usual size is 6x6, and sometimes I struggle with larger cards. The image is of course the fabulous Alf from Digistamp Boutique. I coloured him up with copics adding black stripes to his top (Phew that was hard!) The papers are Echo PArk and the sentiment is computer generated! 



Thats all for today!
