Confirmation Card

My son was confirmed yesterday – it was such a lovely service.  Here is the card I made for him.  I made the Cross from ribbon and offset it to make a modern CAS design for a teenager.  I printed out the words then added the ribbon and button.

Bookworm

This is a Pollycraft image teamed with old Kanban papers and a Hunkydory sentiment.  The crocheted lace and flower are from my stash and the charm is part of a broken necklace.

Making the most of what I have card

Today’s card is made using a Polkadoodles digistamp.  The little tag is from Hunkydory and the metal flower is a bead from an old necklace!  The flowers were assemled from bag-full that was given to me. and the papers are from a Polkadoodles pad that I think was free with a magazine, so this card was almost free to make and is perfect for the birthday of one of my daughter’s friends.

Silent Night

I made tis Christmas card using papers from Debbi Moore Designs.I considered adding a sentiment but thought the impact of the image was so strong that it would not be necessary.  The infant Jesus in the mager was fussy cut and mounted onto the scene of the sky.

1st birthday card

A Today I am sharing a card I have made for the youngest man in my life, my godson Felix, who is coming up to his 1st birthday.   The image I have coloured is from A Day for Dasies and the papers are very old and from my stash.  The sentiment is from My Paper Stash and I have used peel-off letter to complete the card.

Creative Fingers challenge – anything goes

This week’s challenge at Creative fingers is sponsored by:

I have made a Christmas card, by duplicating and flipping the digistamp and using it to frame a sentiment typed out in Serif CraftArtist 2.  After being coloured with Promarkers, the topper was cut with a decorative Spellbinder die.  It was mounted up using free papers which came with one of the magazines from Intermediate Media last year.

I have a rubber stamp with this sentiment and I use it and reproduce it in so many of my cards as I love it.
