Enjoying Good Friday

Well I would like to wish everyone first of all a happy Easter and hope you all have a fab weekend.
I am very proud of myself as I managed to make 3 cards just in one day as I decided that I would have a crafty weekend :-)

2 of the cards that I have made are from the Hunkydory kits
The rose one is called shimmering roses
I got the Flowers in the window luxury foiled topper. And the shimmering roses card stock. I made this card just a bit smaller than A5 as I cut the topper too short so I accommodated it around the shimmering card stock.
The 2nd card is called through the arched window.
I used the floral midday sun shimmering toppers, and shimmering white flowers card stock and mounted it on to an 8x8 white card and I added a sentiment and a light pink ribbon. I copied the ideas from the crafting with Hunkydory compendium 2 magazine. I decided than rather buy their magazines every month they bring one out I buy their compendium magazine which is thicker and easier to store lol.
The third card I made was using the Crafterscompanion party paws cd, I made it into a double easel card as I made this into my wedding anniversary card. I used the decoupage, backing paper and the other embellishments from the cd. I added a few gem stones some flowers that I had and some gold peel offs too. Xx

Having a quick play

Well after watching Leann on ideal world I had a play with my Ebosser. I used my 8x8 embossing folder and embossed my red pearlised card. Then cut out my waltz frame with my Snow White pearlised card. Then I cut out my cheery Lynn butterfly in a red glittered coordination card stock. Then I added some gems.

Crafters companion hearts

Well I do love Crafterscompanion products.
And I so had to make these cards after seeing Debbie Clough's blog.
I made the scalloped easel cards using the sizzix scalloped heart dies.
The Angelica one (fairy) I used the purple backing paper, glittered purple coordinations card stock, and I stamped Florence on to Neenah card stock and coloured her in using my spectrum noir pens. I added 3 flowers and the two butterflies came in the bamboo blockbuster paper kit.
Bamboo I coloured in using my spectrum noir pens and I cut 2 hearts to make it into a decoupage. The sentiment is also stamped and I used DR1 to colour the heart and stamped the sentiment on. I added red gems and also the butterfly as the finishing touch.

Mother's Day card orders

I was asked to make five Mother's day cards for a friend of mine. She wanted a mothers day cards 2 of which was for her mother and mother-in-law. So i used Nigel May's Blooming cd rom and made them both 8x8 easel cards.
Then she wanted a cat for her nanna so i used a cat stamp from crafters companion and coloured it in with my beloved spectrum noir pens. cut the picture out using a Diesire frame. and used feathers and gems.
Then she asked for 2x you are like a mother to me one had to have a lollipop lady omg i struggled for an idea so i googled for a lollipop lady image so i coloured in two images and coloured her in and cut it out to make a decoupage  then googled a road crossing and made into a picture frame which my friend loved.
And the last card i used from the country companions cd rom from docrafts and decoupaged it up.
