80th Birthday card

Supplies:

  • Pattern Paper – English Paper Company
  • Green Cardstock – Prism
  • PM Buff, Cream and Brown cardstock
  • Stamps:  Fish and Basket (on the inside of the card) – Creative Expressions & Hand Stamped By (SU)
  • COPIC Markers
  • Chiaro Flo Clear Embossing Powder – SG-me! 
  • Palette Noir Ink
  • Versamark & Lime Green Fluid Chalk Ink
  • Green Stitched Ribbon – AMM
  • Scor-it Board
  • Cricut with Base Camp Cartridge
  • Loopy Bard – Karen Foster

TIPS:

Used the Base Camp cartridge to cut the 80 and the postal stamp rectange and shadow background.

Stamped out the fish, roughly coloured in with COPICs, covered with Versamark and then several layers of Chiaro Flo (I know that it’s our own product, but it really is the most amazingly clear EP!).

Well, well, well …………. Peep Show won best Situation Comedy at the BAFTA’s last night, it was worth sitting through the whole thing just to see that.  Such a shame the lovely David Mitchell didn’t win best Comedy Actor (he was robbed).  I’m not a fan of Gavin & Stacy and don’t see the appeal of the fat chap, James somethingorother, who did win.

To celebrate I ordered the Series 1 of Peep Show for Rob (ohhh, I admit it me too)  – who is now a massive convert to the series and a huge fan of the wonderful creation of Mark Corrigan.

50th Card for Lisa

sorry folks, I’ve been M.I.A. – life just got way too hectic to be able to cope with blogging – in fact, I’ve not even crafted for weeks now.

A frenzy of activity yesterday produced this 50th Birthcard (which was a commission for one of my work pals).

Really quick cards, using Cricut Base Camp and Mini Monograms with pink and lilac cardstock from my stash, and BG Lily Kate Bon Bon pattern paper.

As usual the the tumbnail images, you can click on them to get a larger image.

Both of these sweet Sugar Nellie images were coloured in with my usual COPICs.

Not a COPIC insight (Bitten by the Bug Challenge)

I probably need to photograph this card, as a flat scan isn’t doing it justice. Still for now, it will have to do.

Supplies:-

Using Scor-it I created a 6×6 card blank, and cut the front at a diagonal.

Next cut the “kiss kiss hug hug” image using Base Camp Cartridge with Dave (my Cricut), and added to the card.

Placed Angel Kisses down the side and stamped one of the corner images on bottom left hand side.

Cut down the blue floral paper with the Purple Cow cutter, stamped the same corner stamp on each corner, then added an Angel Kisses to the top right hand side. Also flutted the side and top of the card.

Pink Pearlidoodles were added to all of the flower centres.

For the inside I fluted a piece of the blue floral paper
