I used an old image, papers, card and a stamp which were all from magazines and unfortunately I have no idea which magazines or the designers. I also used old ribbon and punches. I added new adhesive pearls and coloured them with a metallic red Promarker.
I used corner punches on my layers under the image. I used a holly punch and added more adhesive pearls coloured with a metallic red Promarker as berries.
I stamped and embossed the sentiment image onto card which I cut with a scallop edge circle punch.
I’ve been very busy making lots of good luck cards. This is the first batch! I decided to go for simple monochrome. I used a Krista Smith digi in blue and made the papers with Craft artist. I used punches to make the card asymetric and for added decoration. Here is one blue card in detail. Stereotypically the blue is for the boys!!
Another 21st card today and I also made some matching gifts which I’ll blog over the next few days. Inspired by Spring Colours and flowers I used my new Krista Smith Bedhead digi as my other theme was books as the recipient is a real bookie! I made the papers and frames using Craft Artist. I coloured the edges of the card with distress ink and punched the paper corners with a MS punch.
I coloured the digi with Pro and flexmarkers and highlighted with pearlescent inks. I’ve shown a couple of angels to show the pearlescent effect. Looks a bit OTT but it really just shimmers a bit as it catches the light.
I also made some paper for the inside of the card and punched the corners. I’ve smudged the message for privacy.
This is the first of a set I’ve done for a 21st birthday. This is a box for the birthday card- I was in a rush and forgot to do a side view! The box top has a scalloped edge and the bottom of the box is a light pink textured cardstock.
The papers are First Edition- Love Letters. I used a Martha Stewart corner punch. The ribbon was snipped from the inside of a top (and it still stays on the hanger!!)
I love challenge inspiration photos- these have beautiful pink flowers and I decided to use pink flowers for a splash of colour in my cards.

So this is my card- unfortunately the colouring doesn’t show so well in my photos as I used pearlescent paper- there is much more depth to the monochrome colouring 😉 The celebrate sentiment was embossed on pink glittery paper and the corners punched with a Martha Stewart punch..
I used the Wee Suzi digi stamp and used Craft artist to design and colour the papers. I distressed the paper edges. I inked the card edges with black pearlescent ink.
I made this card for a classics teacher. I wanted a masculine vintage look to match my classics theme. I used distress ink on the card edges and paper edges. The latin text, map and Roman coins paper were coloured using a photo editing package to give a sepia tone.
The map was a line drawing of Scotland in Roman times. Having recoloured it digitally I mounted it on Tim Holtz paper and added crackle glaze.
I used Martha Stewart punches on Tim Holtz paper to make the medallion and the backing for the coins paper. I used the Wishing You Happiness sentiment from LOTV stamped in brown ink on cream card that I had distressed with ink. I used a coin charm covered in versamark emboss and silver embossing powder to make it look like an ancient coin! I used garden twine instead of ribbon to make it more masculine.
I used distress inks on the inside of the card with the Tim Holtz paper with the corners punched. I added my message on the computer. I took a photo of the colliseum and used a photo editor to make a mosaic effect.
Another quick post so hubby doesn’t spot any pictures!! I made this box to put his card in. I wanted it to match to a certain extent but to be something he could use all the time. This is the card in the box base. I used lots of glitter spray on the base to match on the card (although it doesn’t show well in the photo).
The card folded down in the base.
This is the top of the box. Hubby loves watches so I added my favourite embellishment- the brass clock and added a vintage clock face to the heart paper I made and had used on the card. I thought seize the moment fitted the time theme well but is general enough for the box to be useable.
A close up of the top. You can see that I used punches on the corners of my card and a MS scroll punch on the corners of the paper.
From the side you can see that I used scalloped blue paper for the box lid. I used corrugated paper from some packaging cut with scalloped scissors at the bottom around the side.
