 This is a second card made with sweet poppy stencils.  I have used white paste and sprinkled it with silver glitter whilst it is still wet giving the darker appearance.  The 'Happy Birthday' die is one from pink frog and really very useful.The card is really lovely and I think that my photo does not do it justice, I really need to take some lessons!!
Have a wonderful day, thank you for popping by and leaving your comments. x x

Wedding Day

This card was made for a very special couple for their wedding day.  My friend Claire and I created this from the scraps left over from the wedding favour's ... it will just match everything beautifully.
The  photo itself has come out a little dark, in real life the colours just look so natural.  The base card is 8 x8 and made using cream pearl card.  We have added another base of pearly white paper.  On top of this there is a base of hessian the leftovers from the favour bags, together with the lace and the gorgeous green ribbon which is the colour of the bridesmaid dresses.
  The cake has been made using the stencil from sweet poppy and white paste coloured with lettuce green alcohol ink, a sprinkling of fine glitter makes it extra special.  The tag from magnolia, a do hickey die has been stamped with "on your wedding day" from clarity stamps.
All finished off with pearly swirls and paper flowers.  A beautiful card  we hope you would agree X x

A Man's World

Hi to everyone who has popped by today, it is a beautiful sunny Saturday morning as I blog at my kitchen table.  Finally I have a few moments to do this.  Time has just simply flown by and been full of family being poorly and busy days at work.  Perhaps this sounds like your life too!

This morning I bring cards that I have created just recently for the men in my life! 

The theme for my grandson's birthday was a jungle one and this card is just right.  The letters are stamped out using an alphabet from penny black, I have had it for a very long time, but is so useful as the focus point of a card.  The little 'hugs' label is one from a collection by Little Claire. 
I was in one of those well known stationary shops and saw the jungle toppers, I couldn't resist them ... Lion, Zebra and palm tree, there was also a Monkey he is inside :) and they just added the finishing touches.The stamps are from Stamping up.
These cards I really like.  They are neat, clean and simple.  The same but different!  I have made them with a stamp that came free on the front of a magazine that you might have found in a craft shop a month or two ago. 
The globe has been stamped with clear versa mark and embossed with a rust coloured embossing powder.  I have cut it out and mounted it on sticky pads in front of a circular topper from Kanban.  Happy Birthday has been die cut from dies that are available from Pink Frog.  I think that they are very useful and come in a range of words ready for you to add to your cards.  The cards have then nee finished off with raffia, safety pins, buttons and cogs from Tim Holtz.
I hope that I have inspired you to do some crafting this week end.... have a wonderful time.
