Tardis Birthday Card

I made this card for my niece who recently turned 17.  She loves Dr Who and so I thought a Tardis card would be just the thing.  I found the template through Pinterest but now that I go to link to the blog it says that the author has deleted the blog.  What a shame as it was such a great tutorial/template.  All pieces have been cut by hand then edged with black ink.  Adhered to the card in the appropriate layers and finished with the two supplies signs for the front of the Tardis.  I really like the end result and can think of one friend who would love it as she enjoys Dr Who and also it is blue. :-)

Thanks for popping over this way and leaving your lovely comments.

Craftmad October Swap Cards

These are the two cards I made for the October swap over at Craftmad (gallery here).  We had to use any of the Card Sketches that Kaye has post throughout 2014.  I really enjoyed having a starting point, I also decided that both cards would be christmas as I thought my partner could put these to use.  I figure you can't have too many Christmas cards.

I used this sketch from August:

This card I used the February sketch:

Have a great day.

Craftmad November Quilt Block Swap

This month over at Craftmad is our last Christmas Quilt Block for this year.  To finish we get to choose the style of our block so it is a surprise to our partners.  I wanted to use up all the smaller pieces of the Christmas fabrics I had used throughout the year and found this wonderful tutorial on Ambers blog for Scrap Jar Stars.  I used calico as the filler fabric.

The blocks all look similar but the christmas fabrics all appear in different spots.  I did enjoy putting this block together and had thought it may be fiddly with the tiny squares but it went together well.

Now the big task is to put all of this years block together into a quilt and hopefully in time to use it as a decoration this year.

Thanks for passing on by. :-)

Happy Birthday Ashley - Game Control Card

Hi everyone, I really enjoyed making this card.  In fact, I made it twice...that wasn't too much fun.  The first time round I had put the card altogether and then decided that the coloured circles would look better with glossy accents on them.  Wrong....they oozed outside the edge of the circle when drying so not a good look.  So second time round I cut the circles and left them on some baking paper while the glossy accents dried, then attached to the card.

I found this template on Bird's Cards blog.  Used my Spellbinder dies and a circle paper punch and my new alphabet die from Impression Obsession. 

Wishing you a good day and thanks for dropping on by.

Something to Celebrate

Recently, I needed two cards quickly and I spied this card by Lucy Adams, so had a go.  The first card is for my SIL who loves purple.  I so love the background paper on this card...sadly this is the last of it.  I have used the Marvelous Squares die from Spellbinder and white sentiment stickers from Sticker Store.  I then used my white gel pen to do a little doodling.

The green version I made for my friend Joy.  The same layout although I used Stampin Up paper and went for green and silver colours.
