Mmmm cupcake!

Here's a card I made for my niece's daughters birthday next month. I matched the image up with one of the fabulous enamelled cupcake charms from Meiflower. I love these charms and use them quite often, ( I will have another card coming up in the next few days with yet another one on) as they are perfect for birthday themed cards, and even more so if there is actually a cake on the card, I also used stick on pearls for the sprinkles on the cupcake.

Final Wedding Invitation

Here's the final wedding invitation sample from this latest batch, I have kept this one really simple as sometimes when you have a huge amount to make then the simpler the better. The stunning Diamanté flower is the star of this card, and doesn't really need much else.

A big flower

This card came about because I printed the RTP card kit on the wrong printer settings, the large yellow background paper printed slightly off  the edge of the page losing the red border down one side. I decided it would be a shame to waste it, so with some red and white card to make a frame and a spellbinder die I made a different card than was intended.

More Wedding Invitation Samples

I have another two wedding invitations samples to show you today, this time around in purple and white, I was originally only making the one with the lattice top but due to a small mistake on my part ( I die-cut the wrong sized scalloped heart, it was far too big, and ended up cutting a smaller one from the middle, the frame that was left inspired me to make a second card).

Cube Calendar

I've got something a little different to show you today, it's a cube calendar which I've dillied up with some ribbon, gems and buttons from Meiflower.
The calendar has a little drawer at end end for holding your bits and bobs and I have used gingham buttons from Meiflower to make little drawer handles, tied on with some red waxed cord, I've also used black waxed cord to make the laydbird antennae as it was easier than trying to cut them out.

Tonic geared border punch

I think these would make  a lovely end of year or Christmas present for Teacher, or would be great for craft fairs etc.

Me again!

It's either all or nothing with me at the moment, and for the next wee while you will be getting the all part LOL! so here I am with yet another card.

Image - TEDDYBEA_252 - coloured using Photoshop
Digital papers - So Egg-cited - Crazy4monograms
Lots of punches and dies
Ribbons, Gems and Pearls - Meiflower

I just used strips of  patterned papers and ribbons for the layout, and although I didn't actually use scraps I did think it would be a good way of using up some of those odds and ends of  papers and ribbons that all good crafters collect along the way, you know the ones you keep because they might 'come in'  LOL!

In the words of Arnie Schwarzenegger as the Terminator
I'll be back!
see you tomorrow

Wedding invitation samples

Today I thought I would show you a couple of wedding invitation samples that were inspired by a visit with my daughter and grandson to the local pantomime - Cinderella. For the wedding scene at the end the whole stage and cast were bedecked in red, gold and cream and I immediately thought wow, that's a great colour combo for some wedding invitations, so first thing next morning I was busy in my craft room working away, and here are the invitations I came up with.

Small red pearls, gold gems, Cream 25mm satin ribbon,

A plait, a wish and some Polka dot buttons!

Just wanted to show you my latest card using some Meiflower goodies.
I selected 4mm satin ribbons in the three main colours of my card design and plaited them together, then added them to my card,  I also made a bow using the same three ribbons.
I finished the plait off with a Wish charm and a small Polka Dot button, and added buttons to the centres of the punched flowers.

Autumn Leaves!

I know Autumn is gone and we are well into Winter now, but I have had this card made for a while and unfortunately with all the Christmas stuff going on it didn't get an airing so I thought I would show it off today.

I have used quite a few of the gorgeous little spotty buttons from Meiflower, which come in a great range of colours including an Autumnal selection. I have also added an antique effect butterfly charm which I've decorated with tiny stick on gems, once again all from Meiflower.

I love the little word charms that are available from Meiflower, on this card I have used a Create charm (you can also get Inspire, Wish and Love), as Bo bear looks like he is holding a big Copic marker and I thought he should create something with it, hence the little handmade - pawmade card.
