Welsh birthday card

Today I am sharing a card with a Happy Birthday greeting in Welsh.  I have used a digiskit available from Daisy Trail called National Flags.  The card is a 6 x 6″ card with dimensional elements, assembled in Craft Artist 2.

Creative Moments Challenge – Bingo!

Today’s card is my DT for Creative Moments’ new challenge.  I have used a digistamp from Di’s Digi Downloads and is called Summer Sun Mouse.  the backing papers are from My Minds Eye and were used to reflect a sketch, shown below.

I have recently treated myself to two packs of Spectrum Noir Pencils and this is my first attempt at colouring with them – I am happy with the result but think I’ll get bettter with practice.

Happy 18th Birthday

I have recently started to sell cards at a local craft shop and we have had lots of enqiries fro age cards so over the next few days I’ll be sharing some of my designs that will be going into the shop.

Today’s card is made predominantly using dies. The Numbers are cut with a die from Marrinne Creatables and the stars and sentiment are cut using Tonic dies.  The hexagons were cut from patterned paper.

Creative Moments Challenge

I have made this card for the latest challenge over at Creative Moments.  The theme is Monochromatic or as usual anything goes.

I have used a digistamp from Karleigh Sue, although I think she is a lady with a craft trolley but I thought this was perfect for a friend of mine who works as a travel agent.

On your Retirement

I have made this card for a lady who will soon be retiring from the school where I work.  It is a 7″ x7″ card an the beautiful papers come from DoCrafts’ Simply Floral range (currently on sale on their website).

The large flowers were cut out from a 12 x 12 paper sheet and the sentiment was printed from my compter and die-cut.  I added the gems from my stash.
