Hubby's Card!

Hi crafters,
This was my card for hubby for our Wedding Anniversary this week (omg, 20 years since our special day- can't quite believe it!)
I've made a swing type card that we did at our recent workshop with a topper from Lisa's  'Animal Antics ' CD.
I've used Sue Wilson's pierced fishtail dies, some small wooden hearts and a blue heart brad I found in my stash!
This pic shows how the folds work (hopefully! ).
I'd like to enter my card in the Creative Inspirations challenge which is 'Cute critters'.
Thanks for popping by,
hugs, Karen xx

Card for little sis!

Hi crafters,
I've made this card for my sister's Birthday and I tried a different way of colouring with my promarkers.  I've seen some gorgeous images coloured with distress inks and so I tried to get the same effect with my promarkers.  I don't know if I achieved it but I'm quite pleased with the way it turned out!
I've used a Stamping Bella image and a Go Kreate die for the base card. The papers are from Maja Design and I've added some lace,  a doily and some WOC flowers.  I added a charm to the tag which is tucked in behind the image. Some glitter (of course) and some pearls finished it off.
 Here's a view of the tag which I've stamped with an LOTV sentiment.

I'd like to enter my card in this week's Passion for Promarkers challenge which is ' Tag you're it'.
Thanks for dropping by,
hugs, Karen xx

New Pad!

Hi crafters,
I made this for my nephew who's just bought his first house with his girlfriend.  I thought this image from Lisa's CD ' Animal Antics ' was perfect!
I printed off one of the toppers, added some glitter and some glossy accent to the eyes- it brings the animal to life I think!
I made some more of those punched flowers (told you I'd be making lots of these didn't I lol). I found some matching ribbon in my stash and added some dragonflies which I chalked in green to go with my little frog!

Thanks for looking,

All about Birthdays

Hi crafters,
I'm back with a Welsh 18th Birthday card I made after being inspired by a layout used by Lisa at Ella's Design, I think we've used it in our workshop too.
I coloured my image with my promarkers and added glitter here and there! I made the flowers with a punch and added chalk to the centres - I love making these and will be using this technique a lot as they are so handy if the cards are being posted.  The polka dot buttons matched the dotty paper and I embossed the white backing card too. Some pearls and ribbon were the finishing touches and the job was done!
