Delphinium


Good afternoon blog friends and today I'm sharing a card with you that I made at the end of July with one of my very favourite flowers Delphinium's and they grow in some amazing colours.
My sister ordered 3 cards for her close friends birthdays as she won't be in Cairns Australia this year to celebrate their special days.  So I told her to go to my blog and have a look at previous cards I've made and designs and see if any of them inspired her and knowing her friends what colours they would like.
Well, she did that and chose a card I had made in October last year and wanted that card for her friend Ginny, but unfortunately, I had given it away to a friend of mine here in New Zealand for her birthday.  I never make the same card twice as each of my cards is originals.  So I made the same card with the same sketch which was my design anyway and the same design paper but decided to use a different coloured backing card.   I'm so glad that I did as I feel that the second card I made turned out better than my original card.  I think all the girls are going out tomorrow in Cairns Australia for lunch before my sister leaves for her trip.

Here is the sketch that I used over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 back in October last year.

Here's the card I made in October last year, yes there's a big difference, one is darker this one is more pastel shades.

Card Recipe:
1. Base: White French Linen card stock.
2. Coloured Card: Bazzill Pear and American Craft Saphire 
3. Design Papers: Kaisercraft Wondering Ivy

Happy crafting everyone.

Happy 18 Birthday


Good morning and welcome to my blog.  
Today I'm sharing the second of two cards I made for my sons 
18th Birthday.  You would think I would be a pro at masculine cards as I have a husband, two sons and a male cat, but I find it so hard making masculine cards.
With feminine cards, you can make them pretty with ribbons, flowers, gems and lace.  But with the boy's cards is so different especially when you have a son that doesn't like a lot of colour and into a minimalist look.  So here's my effort and he did like it, he thought it was elegant but a little too much glitter for his liking.


We gave Ryan a few presents but also CASH which I don't like doing for gifts but as it was his 18th birthday and I had given Liam money (dough) in a pizza box and decorated it I had to think of something for Ryan and thought of a cracker which I made.
I was really happy with the first Cracker I had ever made, thank goodness to Google which helped me on this one.


Challenges I'm Entering:
Card Recipe:

1. Base: White French Linen card stock.
2. Coloured Card: Bazzill Blackbird
3. Silver Card and no design paper.

4. Embossing Folder: Happy Birthday by Cuttlebug

5. Large number dies which are unbranded and are 9cm tall.

6. Background: I used a selection of Washi Tape in Black (Charcoal), Pewter and Silver
7. Dies: Heart Memory Craft Dies for the cracker.
8. Inside and the back of my card.



Take care everyone and happy crafting.
