Belated Wildflower Birthdays

These belated birthday cards use Tim Holtz Wildflower dies and the Belated Birthday stamp by Woodware.

I’m trying to embrace the white space at the moment – it feels classy.

Nordic Winter

Made using the Nordic Winter die by Sizzix – my favourite of 2019.

The sentiment is some old IKEA washi tape.

Nordic Winter

This is my favourite style card this year: modern, clean and simple.

The houses, tree and deer are just the ‘confetti’ from the Sizzix Nordic Winter die.

The background is ink blended using Harmony Inks.

CAS Deer

A great card for batch making.

The die is one I picked up from Ali Express that I just liked the look of.

The tiny sentiment is one by Altenew.

Watercolour Kissing Ball

I tried something new! I followed a recent tutorial by The Frugal Crafter on YouTube for painting a Kissing Ball.

I’m pretty pleased with it. Doesn’t look too bad.

I used Altenew Watercolours.

Christmas Day Birthday Card – 2

The second Christmas Day birthday card is based on a design I’ve seen on lots of Stampin Up demonstrators feeds.

I used a wreath from Simply Made Crafts which I stamped with Harmony Ink and then used clear embossing powder over it.

I coloured the wreath using Little Tipsy Alcohol Markers.

The jumper embossing folder was a freebie with a magazine last year and was called Nordic Winter.

Christmas Day Birthday Card

I was asked to make a couple of birthday cards for a lady who shares her birthday with someone very famous….Jesus!

She was after a card that acknowledged that it’s a Christmas Day birthday so this is the first card I’ve created.

I hope she likes it.

Sizzix Nordic Winter Christmas Cards

I’ve been busy batch making some cards to donate using my favourite die of the year, Nordic Winter by Sizzix.

Whilst I’ve been merrily die cutting I’ve found my desk scattered with the most adorable leftover confetti which was just begging to be used!

I used my Taylored Expressions blender brushes to make a little background directly onto my A6 card base by just running some masking tape around the edge of the card and ink blending in the middle using Spectrum Noir harmony inks.

I then picked some of my little pieces to make some little scenes.

The Merry Christmas sentiment is by Crafter’s Companion (Sara’s Signature Collection – Winter Wonderland).

I love this simple look. I hope you like them.

Summer Meadow

One of my favourite card styles is to do some sunset ink blending and add on some silhouette stamping.

These cards were made using the Summer Meadow stamp set that came as the gift with issue 198 of Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine.

I think this style is great for birthdays, get well or even Sympathy cards.

It really is a lovely stamp set.
