Making Cards magazine… seaside themed cards

So another day and another Making Cards magazine kit out to play… today’s kit is from the latest magazine and has loads of fab seaside and under the sea themed papers.

I spent an afternoon having lots of fun cutting out images and then papers to layer up some cards ready for when I had time to put them together and finish them off.

And so I ended up with a lot of cards to be made up (and rsi from the scissors!).

Today I have four cards to share that I have made from that massive stack.

I love the colour scheme of these papers … so pretty with the peach and aqua colours.

I added embossing to the peach panel on these two which I thought added some nice texture.

I also added some black enamel accents dots to add some gloss.

So only about another 25 cards to make… but for now this will do! I’ve packed the rest away in a poly bag all ready to grab and finish off at another time… or more than likely in stages!

Happy crafting!



Gelli print background card

I am trying to use up bits off my desk again rather than make anything new or create more bits to pile up and I unearthed a gorgeous gelli print background I had made and forgotten about! So immediately set about turning it into a card.

I kept it simple with some embossing and the printed image I had been gifted in a swap and a piece of ribbon. This way the gorgeous gelli print could speak for itself!

Happy crafting!


Gorjuss die cut girls

About a year ago a lovely friend die cut some Gorjuss girls for me but I never got round to using them… well I have now!

I must admit I wasn’t brilliantly happy with the skin tones on a couple but hey… they are all still cute!

This first one I used a background I created ages ago as a masterboard and never got round to making it onto a card. So there are lots of scrummy Paperartsy paints and lots of doodling in the background.

The next one has a strip of yupo paper I coloured with alcohol inks and then some cute mint green cardstock which I embossed. Then used a scrap of patterned paper and some ribbon and a doily to add more layers.

This was an alcohol ink background and some lovely sequin trim along with a doily … love the colours in this and the background has lovely silver bits in it too.

Another alcohol ink background, this time on yupo so not shiny. I found this spotty doily and thought it would work well with the spotty scarf on the girl.

This final one is alcohol ink on glossy photo paper and it works really well. Love the shine and the contrast with the textured back card and all the patterns on the girl. This close up shows the reflection on the card.

Happy with these cute cards… and a big thank you to Mara for the die cuts. X

Happy crafting!


A couple of cards

I made a couple of cards ages ago and just found the photos so I thought I would share them!

They were both using some of the patterned paper scraps I keep in a box …. just waiting for the perfect time to use them!

The first one had four different patterns on it and a fun bit of black trim along with a diecut flower from the Petals and more set and a bird from the Petal Palette set. Cute!

The second card has different papers and a bold green and purple colour scheme with the feature of the Epic Celebrations sneakers! Love the card candi that coordinates perfectly.

I used the sentiments from the Paperartsy Emma Godfrey mini to finish both cards off.

Happy crafting!


Third day of christmas cards

I promised two more unseasonable cards today… Here they are!

Two more square cards using the stash I got as a secret Santa present! All I added was the adhesive and card blanks! Perfect gift for a few hours of playtime for me!

Now time to pack away the Christmas stash after three days of Christmas card blogging and to put these in a safe place until they are needed!

Happy crafting!


More Christmas cards

Yesterday I shared some Christmas cards I made from the generous stash I got at Christmas from a secret santa. Well I didnt stop with those 4 and carried on with some of the other images to make another 4 cards.

This time I kept them to smaller size tent fold a6 cards.

Love these and this whole gold edging thing I’ve got going on!

I made two more cards but will share those tomorrow but then will put the Christmas stash away for a little while! Ha ha ha!

Happy crafting!
