Card number 3

Hi All,

Well I finally finished card number 3, just in time for my sons second Birthday Party of the day.

This time the 8 year old is into Minecraft, so I created this card with lots of 1x1cm card stock, clued them all together then ran it through the Big Shot. The one fantastic thing about over worked and scratched Big Shot plates are they create this fantastic texture on the top of the card stock, which is perfect for a boys card.

I just love making wacky cards and with one more to create before the month end, I better get my thinking cap on.

And the cards keep coming.

Hi All,

It's been a great month for crafting with 4 birthdays that I have had to make cards for.

The first and most important is my husbands, which was on the 3rd of this month. His Mother and I bought him an Xbox One, however because it's so new and hasn't been released yet, I decided to give him something to look at leading up to that date and created this (and I must say so myself) fantastic card...

The second card is for a Rugby mad! 8 year old. This was a little hard because I had to think outside the box and create something that looked close to a field. I think I pulled it off?

I've enjoyed creating cards this month, I have two more to create in the next week so come back soon and see my next blog post!

Stampin Up! World Cardmaking day!

Hi All,

I'm not sure if you've heard, but today is Stampin Up World card making day (@stampinup #wcmd2013) so I created a card for my 5 year olds Birthday and below is my entry.

I created this card using Whisper White, Silver, White Vellum and Bermuda Bay card stock. And utilising the stamp sets "Morning Post Number" RRP $40.95NZD (2013 Holiday Catalogue) and "You're My Hero" RRP W$41.95NZD C$33.95NZD (2013-2014 Annual Catalogue).
I embossed the "You're My Hero" with Stampin Up Clear embossing powder and coloured using the Stampin Up Markers. The punches used for this card were the Scallop Oval and Hexagon.

I hope you get time to make a card today...
