Katy Sue Designs Shoe Birthday Card

Apologies for the terrible photo.  I really enjoyed colouring this in and matching it to the Stampin Up papers but not really sure the whole card worked, when put together.

Mothers Day Card - Stampenduous Corset

This card was made using the most gorgeous Stampenduous corset stamp.  I used a stepper card from WhichCraft and then stamped the beautiful corset onto patterned paper.  I then stamped this again and mounted on 3d foam with a few pearls added to the front.  

The LOVE words are from a retired Stampin Up embellishment set, the ribbon from Chloe Stamps and the Happy Mothers Day is from Lili of the Valley.

These all added together make a really special Mothers Day card for my Mum.

Craftwork Cards Vintage Correspondence Birthday Card

So sorry but this is a rubbish photo before I start.

This card was made using the beautiful vintage papers from Craftwork Cards Correspondence set.

The card was simply made with one of the sheets of paper layered onto a cream base card.  One of the postcards was used (you get a sheet of 6 of these) and I stamped a birthday sentiment onto the card.  This was layered up with three little rose flowers added onto it.

Lili of the Valley Vintage Boy Card

Today's card is made using one of the Lili of the Valley coloured Art Pads.  The picture is a lovely vintage style with a boy say with his dog in a deckchair chilling.  I made this for my Nieces boyfriends birthday.

It was a very quick and simple card.  I took a Kraft card base card and trimmed the boy to fit straight across it.  I then added some Wisteria Wonder ruffled ribbon from Stampin Up behind it.  I know that is a strange colour to use for a male card but it worked so well.   I then stamped in the corner a birthday message to finish it off.  

I so wanted to add more embellishments to it like buttons, twine etc but I went for simple, particularly as I was posting it.

Thanks for looking.

Big Birthday Cake Card

Todays card is made using a free stamp and paper set that I got with a magazine a few months ago.  You can get an almost ideal set from Stampin Up.  The cake is made up of individual layers, every bit is an individual section made up to make the lovely huge cake you see here.  I stamped this with Stazon and then coloured it in with Promarkers.  The papers were also free and I think match really well with the whole theme.

Vintage Craftwork Cards

These two cards were made from a lovely Craftwork Cards set called Correspondence Collection.  I really love these papers and they came with some lovely sentiments and ribbons.

The first card was made simply with one piece of the beautiful paper and some gorgeous Stampin Up retired ribbon and a sentiment added.  I then glittered with Stickles the flower to give it a bit of sparkle.

The second card was made with again one sheet of paper.  I then added a sentiment which I layered onto a bit of leftover paper.  A lovely little bow using some pink ribbon that came with the set.  Lovely.

Be Mine Valentine Card

Sorry I have not blogged, time just got away from me.

Today's card is a really simple Valentines card.  The card is made from Real Red and Black.  The stamp set used was an old one that was a hostess set! but I can't remember its name sorry.

Note to self - must try harder with future cards!!!

Chloe Floral Heart Good Luck Card

today's card was made using a lovely Chloe large floral heart.  I have used this stamp so many times for so many occasions.

This card was made as a Good Luck card for a colleague leaving to a new job a while ago.

The stamp was stamped and heat embossed in
Wow Powders Silver and then really delicately coloured in with pale pink pro marker.

This was then layered up on hot pink card and a lovely loose pink and white ribbon tied together into a bow.

The Good Luck sentiment is from Stampin Up, as was the punch to make the pretty shape
