New Baby Girl card

hello again
hope you are all well. I have been following all your fantastic blogs. Wow you all make some fabulous cards.

Here is my card for today.  This is a commission personalised card for a new baby girl.

Again I printed all the details direct onto the card base in a pink using a font called Papyrus

I always print the names of the parents at the top and the baby's details at the bottom - I think it makes it more personal.

Here is a close up of the bear.  She is an image from the triple Forever Friends CD which was out a couple of years ago. I added some glitter to her feet for some sparkle.

Here is a close up of the top section 

this is the bottom section - I always try to get the baby's details in the same order.

I do hope you like it - sorry its another personalised card but I did tell you I get asked for these a lot! I think they are popular cos you obviously can't buy these in the shops.

hugs to you all

Happy Birthday

hello friends, followers and crafters

another week has flown past us and its getting closer to October! eek.
Where has this year gone.

Here is today's card. I am currently making lots of cards for a box for a local hairdressers so am trying to get as many made as possible.

This is a digi silhouette image from Shery K Designs and I printed her out to fit a 6" square card.

 The background paper is one from my digi stash. 

 I haven't used this paper before and am not too sure if you think its too busy and fussy for this style of card. It was the colours I liked!

The sentiment was printed onto white cardstock and matted onto black to match the background paper.

 I punched some flowers and leaves from the same black card. Tiny flowers from similar coloured paper and then diamantes to the centres for sparkle.

What do you think? Excuse the poor photos - it makes the card look uneven.
 I must ask my daughter Sian to show me how to take better photos! She is doing her degree at uni now so she will know better than me!

Thanks for dropping by today. please let me know what you think.

hugs to you all

Happy Birthday

Hello friends

hope you are all well and having a fab weekend.
today's card is another personalised commission card for a huge Green Day fan.

Here I have used a sketch of the lead singer as he is her favourite.
I have printed the details again direct onto the card base.

I then matted the image up onto red and then black cardstock to match the colours in the image.

The second card is for a huge Kellin Quinn fan. 

Here I have used another sketch. But matted this time onto holographic mirri card.

 Here is a close up of the drawing.

Thanks for dropping by again today. Hope you like today's 2 cards.
off now to blog hop with all your lovely fantastic blogs.

hugs to you all

Happy 3rd Birthday (Mickey and Minnie Mouse)

hello friends
well as promised I have a new card to share with you. Another personalised requested card - told you I do a lot of these!

This one was requested for a little girl called Courtney - she will be 3 in December and apparently wants to marry Mickey Mouse! Not sure what Minnie Mouse will think but you never know! LOL

Once again personalising was done directly onto the card base this time using the Walt Disney style font.
I have used a pre coloured image of the both of them - I then matted it onto gold card for some sparkle.

Here is a close up of the image

This is the top section of the card.

And this is the bottom section

Thanks once again for dropping by - and for your comments.
I will see you all again tomorrow with another card.

until then 
love you lots

Happy Birthday Daughter (commisssion)

hello friends
hope you all had a fab weekend and did whatever made you happy.
Thanks for all the positive comments on my last card. means such a lot to me.

Here is today's card. Another personalised commission card. This time for a 20th birthday.

Here I have chosen to use a Bugaboo digi image. This one is called Dottie with Cupcake.  Here I have coloured her with copics and added glamour dust and glossy accents to the cupcake.

The background of red dots was printed directly onto the base of the card but in a lower transparency. At the same time I printed the wording using a font called Fabulous 50's.

I spaced the lettering out to make it more clearer.


Here is a close up of the image.

I added diamantes for earrings and a diamond shaped diamate for the bow in her hair.

Thanks for dropping by today and I love reading your comments and returning the favour.

hugs until tomorrow

Happy Birthday (gorjuss girl)

hello friends and new followers.
wow - thanks so much for joining me. its a pleasure to have you on board (so to speak) - I do hope you like my creations - although I am a bit all over the place I hope to keep you all regularly following with new cards as often as possible.

today I have another commission card - I do get asked for these a lot - I think its because they are personalised and made to order. I make them as requested.

This one I have used a die cut Gorjuss Girl image slightly decoupaged up. 

The font is called Allura and printed directly onto the card base.

I added some of the small flowers from the kit and the heart just to balance the card out. I felt it was too plain and stark on its own.

Thanks for dropping by - I appreciate any comments good or bad and I will be back very very soon with another new card.

hugs to you all
