Tinkerbella card (custom order)

One of the girls at work asked me to make a card (well quite a few actually), but this one is a rush job for Wednesday for a little girl who is going to be 5 I think (need to check that).
Supplies:

How to:

Pretty much like most of the cards I make really, but briefly here we go:-

  1. Cut piece of 12×12 white cardstock in half, and with scor-it board make into a 6×6 cardblank.
  2. Take a piece of the Fairy Fun yellow flower paper, and cut to around 5×5 using the Purple Cow cutter and the flutted blad. Matt onto dark pink cardstock, and punch all corners with the star corner punch. Add to the white card.
  3. On white cardstock stamp the Tinkerbelle image with Art Print Brown ink, and heat set. Colour in with COPIC Markers and Sakura Gel and Mettalic pens. Trim the edges of this image with the Purple Cow and flutted blade. Matt on yellow sparkle paper and then dark pink cardstock. Run the Pixie Dust Dewdrop around the edge, and then add to centre of card.
  4. Stamp “happy birthday” at an angle in Perfect Pulmaria Dewdrop.
  5. Add pink Prima Daisy to bottom left of image, and add a Zoomz in the centre.
  6. Tie a piece of pink satin ribbon around the top of the spine and, then tie two extra small pieces of the same ribbon.
  7. Inside, and on the envie stamp “Wishing you a birthday that is just your style”.

I will probably add a number to this card, but I can’t remember if it was 3 or five. I may well get fancy and cut a larger number out of shink with Dave the Cricut and shrink it down, and then tie onto the pink ribbon…I will wait and see for that bit tomorrow.

I’ve been mega, mega busy at work, with no sign of it letting up, but at least the day goes by quickly.

Whilst working on this card, I’ve been listening to Russell Howard and the oh, so funny Jon Richardson…..he’s just the funniest thing ever, and just a little bit foxy.

Cruisabella

Supplies:

How to:-

  1. Take a piece of 12×12 Wizard Medium cardstock, and cut in half. Using the Scor-it board score this 6×12 piece of cardstock in half, and fold to make a card blank.
  2. Stamp the daisy from the Paper Salon Tin over the top half of the card. Colour them in with the dark green sugarloaf marker and the Stardust Pen.
  3. Cut a piece of the pattern paper from the Mellow pack and add across the bottom half of the card.
  4. Place a strip of ribbon across the join. I used a glue line for stability.
  5. With the white cardstock (I used the triangle from another card), stamp the Cruisabella with the Black Memories ink. Colour in with the COPIC markers.
  6. Matt this triangle onto the Intense Kiwi cardstock, and stick over the card centrally using the Scrapbook Adhesive. Cut off the excess from the edges of the card.
  7. Add a Prima Daisy to the apex of the triangle with with Scrapbook Adhesive. Add three Hero Arts gems to the centre.
  8. Also stick a gem to the centre of the largest wheel, and also three as if they are coming from the exhaust.
  9. Stamp the “wishing you a birthday that is jsut your style” on the inside of the card.
  10. I also added glossy accents to the windscreen portion of the stamp, but after I’d taken the picture.
  11. Stamp a pearl 6×6 envelope with the Build a Bloom stamps for a finishing touch.

This card is for my friend Karen, who has a birthday on Saturday, so I also added a bit of Chinese Orange to the Bella’s hair (as Karen has the most beautiful auburn hair). She also, like me, adores purple.
