Game Controller (Blue)

 I made a green game controller card now I’ve made a blue one, only difference is I brought the headphones die which I think finishes the card off.

I’m still not brilliant at blending but getting better but I’m never happy when I splatter ink so I used an old Stamping Up stamp.

The main dies are MFT and the sentiment Creative Impressions.

For August I making Christmas cards, although I don’t have a single idea inside my head.

Wedding Card

 It made a nice change to make a wedding card and though I’m not keen on headless people once you get passed that it looks ok.

The background was made with Forever Fern from Stamping Up, which was similar leaves in their invitation. 

The Bride and Groom dies are MFT and I love that it comes with a swirl to fit inside the dress, just helps to finish the dress.

 The sentiment is theirs two but embossed on Vellum and wrapped around the card. It helped that I made all details on apiece of card then stuck that to an actual folded card.

The actual Wedding turned out to be a beautiful day and all went well.

Pretty Pink Parcels

 I finally got round to using the Pretty Pink Posh parcel dies, I missed them the first time round. So I cased a card from A blog called Wanda that I found on Pinterest

They came out for Christmas last year so I’m looking forward to using them this year. The birthday sentiment is MFT in matching colours.

Hope everyone survived the heat, hiding out for the last few days, my joints certainly not liking the heat. Maybe I’ll get round to some card making now.

Bouquet of Flowers

 I have to say how impressed with myself since I made the bouquet wrap it’s a circle folded over did it stop me from buying a proper die no it didn’t.

The flowers are my MFT ones cut from various colour code but I also had the stencil to colour the centres not sure that worked when I did it but love how the white flower turned out. The sentiment is also MFT.

Birthday Rememberance

 This is another card I made a few weeks back, you see I made two cards for my Dad and chose the one I liked best. This is the other card using an old Stampin Up stamp set but I think it would work for a man’s card too.

The green wooden card is again a Stampin Up large stamp, stamped using the matching green ink pad.  The stripy paper was Washi tape which I stuck to white card then cut it, simply don’t like the fact it’s see through.

Wedding card almost finished waiting for glue to dry before attaching sentiment band.

Birthday Candles

 I found this die in my MFT box and realise I never used them. So I cut them out with some MFT papers I have and yellow card for the flames but added a bit of orange ink to make them look lit.

The double stitched frame is again is MFT come to think of it so is the sentiment.

So I’ve been missing since we went to Weymouth for a week, we were so lucky with the weather, one wet day and one cloudy day. We found some lovely restaurants and cafes also lovely ice cream which we visited often. 

While there we got a call to say our new two seater suite was in so the house is in a complete mess while we get our old suite picked up and carpet cleaned. Maybe doing our bedroom carpet wasn’t such a great idea but someone split orange juice.  

Need to get back to card making asap have a wedding this month plus a really busy birthday month.

Game Controller (Green)

 Another card I made that’s sitting in my drafts till it’s been delivered. I picked up the game controller dies from MFT at Sandown and the Birthday sentiment die is unbranded but I think it could be Penny Black.

The background I made myself after watching a reel on Instagram, you use circle punches or dies of different sizes and use it as a stencil. I then used some old Stampin Up stamps. 

It was while making this card MFT opened the vault and re-released some dies including a headphone die so I had to get it.
