Female Birthday Card

I made this ‘clean and simple’ card for a friend after seeing the idea on Pinterest.

Using my Misti stamping platform, I stamped the word
‘Happy’ using five different coloured inks.

Next, I die-cut it using the pierced rectangles die, used 3D foam to
adhere it to the card base, then added the birthday sentiment and gems.

The products I have used are:
Ranger Ink Letter It Clear Stamps - Birthday
Die-Namics - Pierced rectangles
Card Deco - Happy Birthday

My 'Inspiration Scribbler' Card for Scribbles Designs

   Today, I am sharing my 'Inspiration Scribbler' project, made for the
monthly Scribbler's showcase of Scribbles Designs Challenge Blog

The theme this month is 'The Most TREEmendous Time of Year’ where
we would like to see you use one or more trees on your project.

Sharing my design team card...


The details of the current challenge can be found HERE


The items I have used are:
Lawn Fawn - Stitched Rectangle frames
Leanne Creatief Embossing Folder - Christmas Branches
Promarkers

I started by printing the Christmas tree onto white card and coloured the
 image with Promarkers. I then added Glamour dust to the image to
give some sparkle.

Next, I die-cut the frame in green card and black fun foam and glued
them together. I glued the frame over the image and trimmed.

Lastly, I added the coloured gems to the tree and the peel-off sentiment.

A Crocheted Throw/Blanket

 Today, I am sharing a crocheted throw blanket I made for one of my great nieces. 

I used the lovely textured Sedge stitch which I found HERE on 
the 'Blossom Crochet' YouTube channel.
Rebekah’s tutorials are really easy to follow and she has lots of different
 crochet stitches to share.

I started by deciding how wide I wanted the throw to be. 
I chained 141 stitches, and crocheted rows of the same stitch until I 
reached the desired length.

I finished by crocheting a border of four rows of half trebles.

I purchased the yarn online from The Wool Box
using eight 100g balls of Stylecraft Special DK in the colour ‘Lavender’

for friends and for my nephew and wife.

using 3D foam, and glued the cut-out heart directly onto the pink card.

Lastly, I added some diamant√© gems and the peel-off sentiment onto 
the punched card.
