I was a very busy bee yesterday making lots of cards that people have ordered from me and a few little boxes too.

Baby Boy

This baby boy card was made using a stamp from the Baby Baby set from LCI. I have a few baby stamps now but I couldn't resist this set cos it's just so damn cute!

The base card is made from SU card and the stripey glittery card is from a gcd stack that I've had a while but the colours matched perfectly :)

I added some glitter to the blanket and a little charm and a few gems to finish off.

Thanks for looking.

Less is More Week 6

This is my entry for week 6 of the Less is More challenge blog. It is the first time I have made a one layer card but I really like it - even if I do say so myself!!

All the hearts are chocoloate brown (except the red one obviously lol!) even though they look black in the picture.

All comments greatly appreciated!

Thanks for looking.


LCI and Inspirational Card Sketches Challenge

This card is not for my mum, but was made for a friends mum. I am entering this into LCI Challenge for 'Spring Colours' and also into Inspirational Card Sketches as I followed their sketch as I had a bit of a mind blank!
I might use this sketch again as it's really versatile.

Thanks for looking.

P.S. Too late for the LCI Challenge :((( Closed this morning at 9am :(((

Happy Birthday Sis x

This card and box is for my sister who's birthday is 15th March. She doesn't check out my blog (I hope!) so it's OK to show you this now!

I used SU card, patterned paper and Happy Birthday stamp. The rest is from my stash (which never seems to go down lol).

It took a while to stick on all the gems individually but I think it was worth it.

Thanks for looking

Less Is More Sweet Owl

This is my entry for the Less is More challenge blog week 5 - pastel colours. This card is for a friend at work. I have used some paper from the Sweet Owl pad which I absolutely adore! I was literally stroking it when I got it lol. My daughter thought I'd gone bonkers!

I used one of the glittered sheets which you can make out in the pic below and I cut the owl out from another one of the sheets and then added a single gem to the sentiment to finish off.

Thanks for popping by.

Little Bags of Goodies!

I am trying to be more creative and not just make cards. I've done a few boxes now so thought I would have a go at little bags. I got the design from here but I had to change the measurements slightly as it's Amercian sizes on the tutorial. I wish there were more tutorials with English sizes!

Each bag contains 5 chocolate eggs and 3 mini packs of loveheart sweets

These were made using Stampin Up products (what else?!!) except for the ribbon which is some I had from a while ago.

Thanks for looking.

Happy Birthday Mum and LCI Challenge

I made this card for my mum on Sunday ready for her birthday next Monday (7th March). When I looked at the Totally Ladybug Tuesday Challenge for this week it was faux stitching and they've changed their rules so that you can use any stamps and not just LCI stamps so this card fits perfectly into this challenge!

So here's the card

I've used Stampin Up card on a Papermania Kraft card blank and the swirly flowery stamps are by Marion Emberson. The 'Just for you' is a Stampin Up stamp which I masked the bottom off (where it says 'so you don't have to share'). I stamped it with versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. A couple of Prima flowers and some gems to finish off.

Hope mum likes it!

Thanks for looking.
