Female Birthday Card

Today I am sharing a 'clean and simple' birthday card I made recently
for my niece, by just using an embossing folder and a sentiment die.

I die-cut the Happy Birthday three times in the purple card,
glued them together to give some dimension, and then glued it
directly onto the embossed base card.
Lastly I added a few pearlised gems.

The products I have used are:-
Stampin' Up Sizzix Thinlets die - Happy Birthday
Crafters Companion 3D Embossing Folder - Ornate Lace

Sweet Winter Blanket

Today I am sharing another crocheted blanket I made earlier this year.
In cardmaking 'Christmas in July' is a trend, so I thought I could add my
crocheted throw to this theme, just before the month ends!

The designer of this gorgeous blanket is Sue Rawlinson also known as
‘Sweetpea Family’ on Facebook and Instagram

I love her pattern designs and the pretty colour combinations she uses,
this one using beautiful Christmas colours.



I purchased Sue's pattern from Love Crafts which you can find HERE


and I purchased the yarn pack from Wool Box HERE


The pattern uses 9 x 100g balls of Stylecraft Special DK in the following shades:
Cypress, Cream, Claret, Lincoln, and Lipstick 

The pattern also includes a Pom Pom band to wrap around the blanket,
but I have still to make that.


I really enjoyed making this blanket, and it's now ready to be used this Winter.

Here are two other blankets I have made from Sue's patterns...

Sweet Blossom Blanket
Sweet Summer Blanket

Birthday Card for my Great Niece

Today's card is one I made for my eldest great niece for her 14th birthday.
She's very much into her singing and dancing, so I thought this image
would be perfect for her.


I already had this fun coloured image which I found on the internet.
I matt and layered it onto pink card edged with a black Promarker, and
placed it onto the embossed card base using 3D foam. I then added
her name to finish.


 The products I have used are:-
Christina Griffiths Card Making Magic Embossing Folder - Happy Birthday
Cuttlebug Alphabet - Olivia

Eclipse Birthday Card for my Great Niece

 Here is the card I made earlier this month for one of my great nieces.
for her 12th birthday.
She loves playing tennis, and is a member of a local tennis club so I
thought this Hunkydory image would be perfect for her.

Before mat and layering the image onto the pink card, I die-cut
her name into the image, and used black 3D foam to raise
the letters.

The products I have used are:-
Hunkydory - The Second Little Book of Decoupage
Papermania Clare Curd's Signature range - Sentiments
Alphabet dies - Brand unknown
