I gotta find out if I can remember how to do this.
I have loadsa cards to show you....am wanting to join in on some challenges cos my mate Shell has inspired me (her blog is on the right if you want to take a look).....but Im not sure how to go about doing it all so I will have to have a looksie if any of these cards fit the criteria (and if I can do it)
I got the inspiration for this first card when I visited my local craft shop (to buy more promarkers lol).....yes Im addicted to them too lol but thats another story I saw a card similar to this and wanted to try and do one, it has acetate wrapped around the front of the card (if that makes sense)....here's the piccy so you can see for yourselves
And now for the upclose and personal bit.....
Here you can see where the acetate arches over the front of the card....it adds a new dimension to the card
As well as me coming out of retirement I also woke "robbie" up (my robo) and cut this lovely template that I got from one of the very talented ladies on UK Scrappers site
Up close and personal.....
I punched out a lovely little butterfly to add a little something "extra" to it
This next one is for our Brother in law for his birthday (hope they dont peek lol).....he is starting a college course on ........guess !!!.......
Bee Keeping!!!....did you guess right?? lol....I have finally entered this card in a challenge over on Lili of the valley ....... not sure if I did it right but hey ho....if not I will try, try and again lol
Upclose and personalI have also done some faux stitching and added card candy thats been decorated to match the card
I know he looks like hes got a wet nose but I can assure you he hasnt got a cold!!.....I have added glossy accents to the bee and the centre of the flower to add dimension to the card
This next one is for my cousin's 25th Anniversary....but that doesnt take a genius to work out lol.....I have also entered it into the great challenge over at "fab and funky" as their challenge is NO designer papers, now I first thought NO WAY could I do a card without using papers to "fancy" it up, but I think I've managed it lol....... the stamped image was from my mate, Shell....she stamped me this image as they are just so cute....I coloured them in using my promarkers
Upclose and personal......
I stamped and cut out the corner of the card and stamped wedding rings in silver on the insert....I saw this idea on the net whilst surfing with Shell the other day and thought it would work with this particular card
Thats it for now although I have got some more to add I will do it soon as I am definatley going to try and keep up now I have got my mojo back
Thanks for bearing with me and looking at my cards....please let me know which are your favourites
