Anniversary Heart closed   side on open

Good Morning All

Yesterday was my parent’s wedding anniversary and this is the card I made for them 🙂

It’s an easel card, as you can see, and is A5 in size.  The design paper is one from the Portobello Road collection, the heart dies are the ones from the Tonic Affections Die Set (which my Mum bought me for Christmas), the word dies are Britannia ones and the bow has been cut using the Die-Namics beautiful bows die.  The little cream roses are from Hobby House and there are also a few sticky gems, but they don’t show up very well in the photo’s!

Anyway, can’t stop, but will be back again soon

elementaryGood Evening All

A male orientated card to share this evening.  I need a card for my Dad’s birthday next week and I’d bought these Sherlock Holmes stamps by Sam Poole, some time ago, so I’ve combined them with the current Mojo Monday challenge and have produced this easel card.

I’ve used an A4 piece of grey card to make the basic card and added some black card to mat and layer and some patterned paper out of my stash.  I’ve stamped the fingerprints in Versamark and then embossed them using silver pearl powder, which looks a bit like the grey powder they use on CSI and the such like 😀

The main image has just been stamped with Stazon onto white card and cut out, but the magnifying glass has had Glossy Accents added to make it shiny.  To finish off the top section of the card, I’ve just added 3 brads from my stash which toned in.

The sentiment stopper has been stamped and embossed with clear powder, cut out with one of my nesties and then inked slightly with Black Soot distress ink.  All in all, an appropriate card for my Dad 🙂

Apart from Mojo Monday, I’d also like to enter this into the current Cards for Men challenge, which is Fancy Folds.

Well that’s all for now, but I’ll be back again soon



Triple Easel Card 23/05/2012

Good Evening All

This will be a quick post this evening, as I’m absolutely shattered – it’s been a long day!

I was asked by my friend Sonia, to test her instructions for a triple easel card, the attached photo is the result.  The photo isn’t brilliant for some reason, but I can guarantee that Sonia’s tutorial instructions are and they can be obtained via her website – Sonia’s Crafty Patch.

I used a different die to Sonia, but the process and the result is exactly that same.

Anyway I hope you like and if so, pop along and have a look 😀

That’s all for tonight, but I will be back again soon
