....while I've been missing from blogland???
Just a few easel cards......
The first was for my son Marc who turned 16 (eek!) on Tuesday :-) I found this digi image from Bugaboo stamps which really isn't too far from what he's actually like :-) and then combined it with a big "16" cut from a freebie background paper from Bearly Mine Designs. The gingham paper is from Crafts Too. Silver swirls, some brads and a charm... ooooh and those lovely letter tile stamps I got on ebay:
Challenges for Marc's "16" card:
Creative Inspirations - Digi Day
Moving along with the times - Anything goes
ABC challenge - T is for Trouble
I tried a similar approach for this 50th birthday card but I wasn't as pleased with the results:
The image is one of Clare Curd's, It's a Man's World clear stamps. The party popper is in the set too :-) The papers are Just Chillin' from Making Memories and the stars are Quickutz nesting stars. A bit of faux stitching to try to make it stand out a bit more but still not enough, methinks...
Challenges for 50th birthday card:
Let's ink it up - Show us your stitching
Pollycraft Monday Challenge - Fun and Games
And then this is for my sister's wedding anniversary this weekend:
An unused Forever Friends stamp until now - naughty, naughty! Stamped the image onto textured card to see what the effect was like and really quite like it :-) The papers are papermania's Summer Bloom. I used the Xcut lacey heart border punch and a sizzix swirl. The sentiment was a stamp I got from ebay - love it!
And just so you can see the glittery bits.....
Challenges for anniversary card:
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Pink, cream and brown
Totally Gorjuss - Bling it on
Wags 'n' Whiskers - Use a die or a punch
Are you fed up of me now???? I hope not cos I'll be back on Sunday with my DT card for the latest Dream Valley Challenge :-)
See you soon!
Love 'n' hugs,
