A shirt with that......


It was hubbys birthday last week, so I had been hanging around pinterest recently and had seen
a few different designs of shirt cards.  Now my man is NOT a bow tie kinda guy, so I found a card here that had a tshirt underneath  the shirt - now that is my guy lol.

So using a piece of DSP, some matching buttons I had, and the circle framelits to create the tshirt, 
I literally threw this card together in about 10 minutes - whoo - I needed it quick as yep - I left it to the last minute he he he.

That cute little sentiment hanging out of the pocket?  Its from the stamp set called That's the ticket, and it is a movie style ticket stub that has happy birthday on it.  Cute huh?



And a second little pocket for the sentiment on the inside and the card was done.


As the norm, click on the shopping bag below to take you to my store for any of these products. 

Have a great weekend everyone :)

rustic butterflies...

I first saw this card in my online store under the butterfly set of framelits.  Loved it so I had to CASE it.  

It was a perfect design and used so many of the stamps in the coordinating stamp set.

A New technique.....

By now you probably have seen this technique floating around the internet.
Its called Bokeh.

Its a style used in photography a lot.

Here is a sample I made - I have been dying to share this with you all for weeks, I did share with my SU family but now I get to share with you all.

I wanted to make it a little classy so I used White cardstock and then coloured it with gold encore pad and black memento ink.  Then used white to create the star shapes.  Traditionally I think they tend to use circles, but I thought I would check it out using a star shape.  

Was pretty happy with the end result :)

Teemed up with brushed gold cardstock and a big gold star and its done.

Stamping time....

Last night I did some online stamping with one of my Stampin' Up! families, 

Yay I got to make a card just coz
That doesnt happen all that often at the moment lol

THe challenge was a pic challenge 
Colours: Black, White, Grey and yellow
Image : Bedroom - modern and a little vintage at the same time

My card:

The yellow strip across the bottom:  I ran a strip of washi tape about 1/2 inch up from bottom of white section of cardstock.
I used my crushed curry ink pad to ink the card.
I then took my white signo gel pen and hand drew the white print design on top of the crushed curry
(it matched a cushion in the photo lol)

FInger buns!

 I have taken to spending a LOT of time in the kitchen over the past few months, Where I used to hate it I kind have a new love for it.  Strange that!  So brace yourselves you just may find more food entries on my blog in the future - If they are successes that is (or maybe even if they arent) ha ha ha.

I found a recipe online recently for finger buns, my son Harry who is 8 loves finger buns so it was the perfect time to try them.

I must say I was pretty happy with the outcome.
Even the frosting was pretty cool.


They were so simple to make, and they will be a perfect lunchbox filler for Harry too.

Stampin' with the kiddies.....

Miss Niece 14, 8 and my son Harry also 8 got together today to do some stamping for an upcoming family birthday. 

This first card is by miss 14
DSP is free with SAB, new stamp set in occasions catty, and so is the word nan, used clay and the new clay moulds in the same catty
Embossing folder and ribbon is now retired.



Second card is by miss 8.  She used the big shot and embossed the frame, then cut around it
punched out all the different owl elements and glued them all together.
punched and cut the decorative DSP.  Stamped the sentiment and added the word nan
with the heart (again the clay is used in the new alphabet clay mould)



This next card was made my my son who is also 8.
That new DSP is amazing, the little balloons are so cute but it has a special gold balloon through it that is all shiny and sweet.
How easy is for the kids to stamp that balloon image and for the kids to die cut them out using the big shot, they loved it.  They got to choose from our amazing range of embossing folders, both current and retired.
 Again they got to use the clay and alphabet moulds for these.



and finally... this is my card, very simple.  Clay moulds and clay for the word nan, flower shop stamp set and the FREE SAB designer paper and the card is done.



Items Used in these cards:
