60th Birthday card - Maja Designs & Stampin' Up

Hello Friends,

It was day three yesterday of the Online Card Class "Insider", I did manage to make my card on time but I didn't have time to post it on here, sometimes cards seem to take ages to make, but the ones that normally take an age to make, are usually worth it!

One of my great friends will be receiving this card, which has a clear acetate window, for her special birthday very soon.......

I've used Maja Design papers again, with Stampin' Up's Morning Meadow stamp set, Pansy Punch and Little Leaves Sizzlits die.  The lace is Fabric Tape from Paperchase.  The Spellbinders die used was Labels 5.

I hope you have time to craft this weekend.

Thanks for stopping by.

Ruby Wedding Card - Maja Designs

Hello Friends,

Here is my card for Day 2 of the Online Card Class, Insider......

It has an acetate front, so that you can see the greeting through.  This makes a very smart card for a special occasion!  I just love it!

Hope you like it....there is still time to join in the fun, if you click on the link at the top, you can sign up too!

I used Maja Design Sofiero paper "Enjoying the lovely Fragrance", along with Rich Razzleberry card stock and ribbon by Stampin' Up.

Happy crafting.


Online Card Classes - Insider, Day 1

Hello Friends,

I'm participating in the latest class from Online Card Classes, which is turning out to be another really inspiring class.  We are on Day Three now and I'm already playing "catch-up".  Here is the card I've made for day one.......

I've stamped the inside with a repeat of a dot stamp, you can't actually see it but I did mask off a rectangle section first, so there would be a place to write!

I'll be back a little later if I manage to catch up and make my card for Day two!

Happy crafting and thanks for stopping by.

Birthday cards - Sizzix

Hello Friends,

I've got a couple of birthday cards to share with you today.  It's our niece and nephew's birthdays.  

For our nephew, I made a card using the Hero Arts and Sizzix Framelits sets 657782 & 657581, along with Stampin' Up's cloud embossing folder.  The kite is made from Shrink Plastic........

and for our niece, I made a centre fold panelled card, the idea was on Splitcoast stampers last week and I wanted to give one a try!  The die cuts are all from Sizzix and the stamps, card stock and paper are all from Stampin' Up.......

You can see from this side view how the card is made......

I hope you get some time to craft today.  Thanks for stopping by.

Flower Shop Bundle - Stampin' Up

Hello Friends,

I love the Flower Shop stamp set from Stampin' Up, the matching punch makes it extra easy to make quick and simple cards.  Here is just one that I've made.....

....the background image is the Dictionary stamp and the colours used were Bermuda Bay and Pear Pizzazz.

Back to a little more crafting today, I think.

Thanks for popping by.

Texture Paste - new baby card

Hello Friends,

A few weeks ago I was playing with some home made texture paste.  I had some left over, in a small container which had dried out a little bit, but by adding just a few drops of water it was perfectly usable again.

Here is a card and gift tag I made for the proud new parents that live opposite me.....

I can't remember the name or even the company who designed the DSP, but the rest of the products used were from Stampin' Up, apart from the little brass stencil, which I've had for years and years!

Have a great crafty week.

Maja Design - Secret Pocket card

Hello Friends & happy birthday Kim,

It's my daughter's birthday today, so I broke out my best paper!

I'd been eyeing up Maja Design papers for a long time and finally bought some a couple of weeks ago.  Buying papers on-line is difficult, we paper lovers prefer to feel and stroke each piece of paper before we buy, which is probably why I took so long to get around to ordering some.

I certainly wasn't disappointed when it arrived, the colours & quality are perfect, take a look at the birthday card I made for my gorgeous daughter, Kim....

It has a secret pocket behind the front section, you can just about make out the scalloped edge at the top of the pocket, on the pink layer, if you look closely at the bottom pic.

The papers are from the Maja Designs "Vintage Spring Basics" & "Sofiero" collections.  I used Sahara Sand & Whisper White for the base card from Stampin' Up.

Have a great crafty day and thanks for stopping by.
