hooray some crafting at last.....

Well a couple of cards and a secret project...

The card below was for my daughters birthday last week...



I used 'diamonds in the rough' cuttlebug embossing folder twice, straight onto the card, sizzix vine die, sizzlit flower die, (the pink ones were doubled up and curled up a bit, and the middles were swapped over to add depth)...the dragonfly and butterfly's were peel off's put onto coloured paper, cut round and stuck on with DST to give it a 3d look... and lollipop upper-case alphabet...

Then the 2nd one was for my hubby for our 24th wedding Anniversary yesterday...



I used the heart cuttlebug embossing folder again straight onto the card... I put a heart peel off onto acetate and coloured in the heart using a red Galaxy Marker, then backed onto gold mirror card, cut round and used 3d foam pads to stick on the card. The wording was printed off the computer, backed onto mirror card and finished off with some red ribbon placed behind, which was stuck on with DST...

and the secret project, well you will just have to wait,..... but can show you a couple of cards Steven made for he's sister's birthday last week, the first was from a Brenda Pinnick kit and the 2nd was made while at play scheme...

Lovely cards Maria, I like the colours you have used on the daughter one.
Steven's are excellent too.

Hi I'm Maria... said...

yes I think steven's cards are extra special too, especially as he's not a person that likes doing hands on things...

and sue, hopefully that will be reviled very soon...xx
