I wanted to make a Winter birthday card for a change. I used a sketch from Sketch Saturday and the Sylvia Zett digi Holly. This picture gives you an idea of the sparkle and shine when it catches the light!
The papers are from Nitwits and I used a red glaze pen and Lime star pen to give them some extra zing by colouring the berries and leaves around the outside. I used Peeled paint distress ink around the edges of the card.
I designed the sentiment on Craft Artist and then highlighted the words with lime star pen. I used a ribbon from stash and coloured gems with flexmarker. I’ve taken a close up without flash. I coloured with Promarkers and flexmarkers. I also used my Sakuras over the top of the Promarkers but the effects of these show up better in the other photos with flash! I used a red glitter pen for the hair band, blue stardust for the wings, red glaze for the berries, white souffle and silver star for the snow and metallic red for the bells.
I made a single layer inside using maching elements.
I’ve been saving them to use for a couple of boys birthday cards I wanted to make for this month.
This is the first of the pair (they are for brothers who are quite close in age and birthday). It uses the digi ‘Jiggys ipod’.
I used distress ink around the edges of my card and made all the papers using Craft Artist with Nit Wits papers.
The image was coloured with Por and flexmarkers.
I made the inside to match.
I decided to make up a card type for this birthday card!
I used pearlescent cards to make my gatefold and stepper cards and stuck them together! I used a MS punch on the edges of the cards. I used craft studio to make the papers- the mice are from Nitwits Thimbles and Threads. The flowers are from WOC.
I used pearlescent inks to colour the lace ribbons for the stepper cards. The beautiful digi is from the Paper Shelter.
I also inked the doily for the inside using pearlescent inks sprayed on it.
Not got much time to post this while hubby not about so sorry that this is heavy on photos and light on text!!
I decided on a squirrel theme! A lot of the elements were from the Nitwits Go Nuts collection although I made the hearts papers.
The digi is from Sylvia Zett and is coloured with Promarkers. I used clear ink and turquoise Perfect Pearls on the background to the image. One of the layers is brown funky foam with glitter spray on it which I mounted with foam pads.
The heart embellishment is a velvet button painted with blue pearlescent ink.
My sentiment is in a font which has little squirrels on it!! The leaf and heart embellishments are from stash. The sentiment is mounted on glittered funky foam on foam pads.
If you lift up the easel there is a little squirrel waving at you!!
This shows the easel effect!
This is the back of the card using the heart paper I made.
A friend is about to have an operation so this is for her.
I used a LOTV die cut and distressed the background and added perfect pearls (doing the same to the edges of my card and layers). The background paper is Nitwits (as is the card inside) teamed with a flourish paper I made.
Used a lovely pink ribbon which I added glimmer mist and pearlescent paint to. I absolutely love the embellishment- very vintage. I used textured card underneath and a MS flower punch to make the border.
This is the paper and frame I used inside from Nitwits Beraly Mine
Another Christmas card to add to the collection! I was inspired by this challenge photo from Christmas Stampin’ All Year Long and used the colours and bauble idea. I also picked up ideas from other challenges in my embellishments and papers.
Papers and embellishments etc on them are from Little Mittens Nitwit collections. The cute little mittens have buttons on them and I changed all the colours to match.
I love the button- it was one that I don’t really want to part with!!
