Evening bloggers, today I have made the second card for my friend Charlotte who gets married this Friday! Those of you who read my blog will know that I made a card that I wasn't entirely happy with. I much prefer this one - what do you think? I stuck all these gems on individually onto acetate using a print out of the letters as a guide. I have used white patterened papers and chocolate brown cardstock, lots of bling and a pink heart-shaped 'love' brad to add a teeny splash of colour.
This is the sentiment I have put on the inside.
I will probably give them both cards but I defo like this one best.
My friend Charlotte is getting married soon (July 30th). For the first part of her hen night, on Friday, some of us girlies went for a spa evening at Centre Parcs ... OMG AMAZIN!! I loved, loved, loved it and will most definitely be going back at some point.
I've made a card ready for the Big Day but I'm not sure I like it. I'm going to make another one this coming weekend and then decide which one I like best. What do you think of this one?
I went with the brown and cream colour scheme because Charlotte has hinted that this may be the colour scheme for the wedding (although I think the bbrown will be much lighter) but I'm not sure I like this for a wedding card? I think it's too dark and the next one I make will defo be lighter.
We break up on Friday for the summer holidays (I work in a school) and a few of the teachers are moving on to pastures new. One of them I will miss so I made her this card to say goodbye and good luck.
Another card made on Sunday, but I thought 3 posts in one day was enough so I scheduled this one for Tuesday 4pm - hope it's worked!
This is for my friend Ang's daughter to give to her teacher as she is leaving Primary school as she starts 'big' school in September! Such a big step! My daughter has almost finshed her 1st year at secondary school and I think she's enjoyed it!!
The card is for a male teacher which is why I went for these papers from Papermania's Hampstead range and kept the layout simple and also because it's from a child of 11!
I used letter stickers for the thank u and then little letter stamps for the word teacher. I finished off this card with some teeny black glitter dots.
This next card was requested from another work friend. She asked for a card with a Bentley for her husbands birthday. I found this picture by doing a google search and was instantly drawn to it because of the lovely colours. They go so well with these papers from The Natural Stack and The Linen Closet from DCWV.
I added some copper/brown ribbon and a computer generated sentiment.
Almost a year ago I started making cards and one of the 1st ones I did was a wedding card for my friends sister. She has asked me to make a 1st wedding anniversary card and this is what I came up with.
I used some My Minds Eye papers that came free in Augusts issue of Cardmaking & Papercraft and some cute little heart stickers from Papermania. The little squares behind the hearts were made with the smallest nestie from my latest set.
I didn't get chance to post my cards yesterday as I had a busy busy day! Wasn't it a lovely day again? Where's the sun gone today I ask? It's rainy here in Nottingham today and it's gone quite cold too :((
Anyway, on to the cards. This first one is made using a gorgeous FF bear coloured with Promarkers. I used a MS punch and some gorgeous paper with babygros and bibs on that I bought just a single sheet of from my local craft shop. I might have to get some more!
This card is for my BIL whose birthday is next weekend. Entered into Card Patterns sketch #71. I was going to enter into FF too but forgot to put the faux stitching on doh!! I went to Manchester yesterday with my husband to fetch his company car for his new job and we also visited the Trafford Centre and then an Arts & Crafts shop which took ages to find! I bought a little easel to stand my cards on to photograph which you can just see the bottom of in this pic.
I use Promarkers in Cinnamon, Tan & Putty for FF bears and blush for the nose bit and a teeny dot of Cerise on the cheeks and ears. It's really hard to photograph cards with mirri card because I can always see a bit of myself in the picture!
A couple of buttons with some silver twine to finish.
I was asked by a friend at work to make a card for her 'mam' as cards in shops all say 'mum'. She left the design totally to me apart from she asked for one of those standy up ones with a button! (an easel card!)
Hi, my name is Donna and I started making cards around May 2009. I have 4 children, a loving husband and a full time job in a secondary school. Luckily I only work term time so get chance to make cards during the holidays! I had a craft room built (June/July 2011) so I can craft to my hearts content ... lucky me :))
