Happy birthday Mum

Yesterday was Mum’s birthday so we celebrated with a meal out.

Here is the card I made for her…

I loved this bold and bright paper from art by Marlene and knew it was perfect for my Mum. I teamed it with the Happy Wishes white embossed sentiment and some light grey cardstock.

I also added in the Happy Celebrations stamp to finish the sentiment and then a scatter of sequins to embellish.

Happy crafting!


Oxides on glossy

Waiting for the car MOT to be done so enjoying the sunshine and a pumpkin spice latte and thought why not write up a blog post (or two) for projects waiting to be blogged …

A few weeks ago I went back to the technique of using oxide inks onto glossy cardstock and created two anniversary cards for the parents stash.

For both I used the same colours, but in different amounts on each card so one was more pink and the other more blue. Both very pretty though.

Then I stamped the Happy from Happy Wishes onto both and then finished the sentiment in different ways on each.

Love the dramatic finish of these with the black for contrast along with the pretty glitter and the pretty colours in the background.

I’m adding this to the inky backgrounds challenge at Back to Basics and Beyond blog challenge as a different take on inky backgrounds.

Happy crafting!


Happy butterfly wishes

I really liked the card I made for my friend the other day so I made another one similar.

I used similar colours of the Hunkydory cardstock and some mirror card. I then heat embossed the beautiful sentiment onto vellum.

I also added the swirly diecut under the butterfly.

I can’t believe I’ve waited so long to use the Happy wishes stamps… this is gorgeous, especially with this champagne embossing.

Happy crafting!
