Lily of the Valley Baby Boy card

 have a couple of cards to share and some more to come but cant post them until the recipients receive them!!
...anyway this one I can share now, its a baby boy one made with a stamp from LOTV, which stamps I am addicted to using at the mo.. and I used a Sketch from Sketch Saturday which I liked the look of.

I added some buttons and one daisy as I didn't want it to fancy, and used traditional blue and punching with a Crafts Too Punch.
the image is coloured with twinkling H2O's.

here is a closeup of the cuttlebug embossing and paper punching, and the stencilled name tag using a spellbinders die.
and another closeup showing the corner made with the same border punch and you might just be able to see the shine as I added memory mist to the corner too, before gluing the button and attaching it to the card of course.

thanks for looking and will be back with some more of an 'aged' look in the next few days.

Have entered this card into Sketch Saturday - love the LO on this sketch, so am sure I will use it again!!

hot warm weather and something bold to share

the weather is just gorgeous this week and hope it continues into tomorrow too, and with that I thought I would share this red, white and black masculine card in nice hot, bold colours!

....very different from my last post I know....

The layout is simple enough, but I alternated embossing with black onto white card and white onto black card to make it dramatic and bold.
Here' is an image of the inside of the card - I love the way the distressing turned out on that as the card wasn't very smooth only slightly uneven, and I like the effect in the end.

Added some card candy and a sentiment to the outside to finish; and coloured with twinkling H2O's, after which I added some glossy accents to the tyres and visor bits on the image.

Meslyn June Challenge - Beach Party :)

Woohoo its the 1st of June and what weather we are having to go with it too!

My first post for the month is a really summery card made with a digi from Di's Digi Downloads which you can find here, and is also my DT entry for Making it with Meslyn Challenge Blog.

Hop over to the challenge blog as there are 3 sets of gorgeous stamps up for grabs as a prize, and its a great theme to get your mojo going too.

the above photo is a closeup one so you can see the colouring and textures and the one below is one with the camera so you can see the layers etc. (i so need a new camera!!)

and some close-ups - the first is of the bunting..

and the punching which was done after I sanded and tore the two colours of Core-dinations whitewash card stock

and the inside of the card which I decided to leave blank for any message..
