30th Shaker

Happy Friday everyone ...

There's a new challenge over at Simply Papercraft  today...


As usual the challenge is 'Anything Goes' which makes it so much easier to join in. Like last time, this week's challenge is just for fun but of course the design team can't wait to visit your blogs and see your lovely makes.

Today's inspiration is a 30th shaker card - don'tcha just love pink sequins! Yes - I know it's another 'number' card and my blog is starting to look like an Adele back catalogue but these are the cards I get asked to make over and over again!





The backgroung is faux embossing - I die cut loads of '30s' andstuck them to white card. For the shaker part I used mixed pink sequins and some OHP film - just as good as acetate but considerably cheaper!

I've entered this card into the challenges at:

Crafting With An Attitude #19 - anything goes
Crafty Girl Creations #26 - anything goes
Inspiration Destination #104 - anything goes
Craft Your Passion #330 - anything goes
Get Creative Challenge #48 - embossing (mine is faux)


So get yourselves over to Simply Papercraft  and join in - it's only a click away!

Striped 18th

I've neglected my poor blog lately - what with work and the Olympics and life in general I haven't had time to do much more than my design team cards!

I've done yet another 'number' card - seems to be all I'm making at the moment when I do have time to make cards. This one is pretty bright even by my standards...

I love the red and white stripes against the red background - a card fit for any Sunderland fan!  I got a large pack of red and white striped card at a recent Ross Papercraft Fair which has proved to be very useful!

I'm entering this into the challenges at:

Glitter 'N' Sparkle #206 - anything goes
Let's Craft and Create #117 - spots or stripes
Sisters Of Craft - anything goes
Dragonfly Dreams - monochrome

Triple Trouble!

Happy Friday everyone ...

There's a new challenge over at Simply Papercraft  today...


As usual the challenge is 'Anything Goes' which makes it so much easier to join in. This week's challenge is just for fun but of course the design team can't wait to visit your blogs and see your lovely makes.

Today's inspiration is a cute card I made for a lady at work who has just had triplets - yes - TRIPLETS!!!


 I used a really sweet digi image of a baby boy and repeated it three times, adding some colour with pastel coloured pro-markers. The pale blue polka dot paper is from my stash and I've embellished with a silky blue ribbon and some tiny flatback pearls coloured blue with a pro-marker. 

A very simple card but a total neccessity as have you ever tried to find a 'triplets' card in the shops? There's hardly any!

I've entered this card into the challenges at:

Crafting With An Attitude #19 - anything goes
I ♥ ProMarkers - spots or stripes
Southern Girls #142 - anything goes 
Inspiration Destination #102 - anything goes

So get yourselves over to Simply Papercraft  and join in - it's only a click away!

Quick 70th Card

Today's card was a lot quicker to make than it looks - thank goodness for die-cutting machines and punches!



I used a variety of fancy dies and punches and some pretty floral patterned card that came from Lidl/Aldi - they often have craft stuff by a company called Crelando which is really good value.

I'm entering this card into the current challenges at:

Southern Girls #142 - anything goes
Crafty Sentiments - lots of layers
Die Cuttin' Divas #281 - anything goes
Crafty Gals Corner #87 - anything goes
Crafty Creations #323 - use a number

Thanks for your visit
