For your graduation

Well it is graduation season here in the UK and i ahve made this card using a Saturted Canary digistamp.  She was coloured using Promarkers then I enhanced the blues using Spectrum Noir pencils.  The card was assembled using one of the Papermania capsule collections.

My 2014 top 15

Thank you for following my blog this year and allowing me to share my creations.  I am planning to make fewer cards next year and concentrate on more sewing projects…well, we’ll see.

I have made approxiamately 200 cards this year and you can imagine how tricky it is to narrow it down to a few favourites, but here goes!  (In no particular order.)

Lili of the Valley stamped image and papers from the Bo Peep collection.

I think this is my favourite.  The papers were from a Tattered Lace magazine and the digi is by Jellypark.

But this is a very close second!  Made entirely using a Polkadoodles CD, I did a lot of fussy cutting to make this circular card.

May your dreams have wings…

 

I am on a bit of a roll at the moment and managing to post every day.  Today’s creation is a card made with a Saturated Canary image.  The backing papers are various (non-matching) bits from my stash and the sentiment is from Hunkydory.

Almost at another birthday

One thing with having 3 children is that there always seems to be a birthday coming!  For child number two, whose birthday is in September, I have coloured a Saturated Canary digistamp with Promarkers and made it into a card using papers from a Papermania capsule collection.  I ran the yellow paper through a Crafts-too embossing folder to reflect the footballer image.  The sentiment is from My Paper Stash and the glittery peel-offs are from my stash.

Retirement card

The blessing of the Lord makes rich, and he adds no sorrow with it.

Proverbs 10:22

I have made this card for a teacher at work who is retiring in a few weeks.  This Sturated Canary image looks very like her and I found the sentiment on a shared poster on Pinterest.  The papers and flowers are all odd bits from my stash, nounted onto a shaped 8 x 8″ card.
