Hot Diggity Dog - Birthday and Good Luck Cards

Here are a couple of Hot Diggity Dog cards I made.  One is for a friend who is moving offices and one is a plain Happy Birthday card.

They are both made on Craftwork Cards shaped blank cards and I have used Stampin Up ink over the bottom emobssed edge of the card.  The background paper, sticker main designs and sentiments are all from the Hot Diggity Dog range, and I have to say I adore them.

Really simple cards, need to get some Christmas cards done now, as simply!!

Golden Wedding Anniversary Card and Box Frame

Here is a 3D Box Photo Frame that I have made for my Mother and Father In Laws 50th Golden Wedding Anniversary which is in a few weeks time and a co-ordinating card to go with it.

I had the box frame from John Lewis quite a while ago and wondered when it could be useful.

I got a couple of old wedding photos and then layered up on some Stampin Up Mocha Morning and Naturals cardstock.  I then die cut some numbers and hearts to put the 50 in the top right corner and the year of their marriage in the bottom left corner.  I then added hearts in Mocha Morning and a dull gold paper I already had at the corners of the photos along with some Marianne Design die flourishes.

I didn't want to get too over embellished as I want them to be able to put it on the wall as a keepsake.

I then made a matching card using leftover bits of papers from the frame.

If anyone wants to buy these Stampin Up papers, I can soon put you in touch with a really good Stampin Up demonstrator.

Elephant with Flowers Birthday Girl

Here is a really cute card I made a while ago using a cute elephant stamp.  I think this may be Penny Black, but to be honest I am not 100% sure.

I stamped and coloured in with Promarkers.  I then distressed around the edge with Tim Holtz Distress pad.  I printed out some words and punched out and distressed this also.

I then layered this all up on a scalloped card from Craftwork Cards with a sheet from Nana's Nursery DCWV card/paper.  I then added a couple of leaf die cuts and a layered up flower embellishment with a pearl in the centre.

Penny Black Hedgehogs

Here is a really cute Penny Black Hedgehog stamped image.

I coloured this in with Promarkers and put some Glossy Accents on to the balloons.

The background papers are really old from the bottom of my stash.  I think they may have been ones from Smirk set.  It was then finished with a stamped Happy Birthday.  CAS I think.
