Morning Glory

 These create a flower dies from Altenew are addictive and here is their Morning Glory. They do take a bit of time to put together and I do try to emboss them a bit but the layers are quite thick.

The background dies are fromSunny Studio and the sentiment is a retired stamp from Stamping Up, layered with various punches.

Vintage Boys

 I brought the Vintage Boys from LOTV not sure why I decided to make a slimline card but once again I kept it clean and simple.

The scallop die I used is from Newton Nook then measured the inside so I could just cut down the card card stock to fit inside. The sentiment die is from Simon Says Stamp. 

It’s been hot and sunny in my part of the UK while enjoying the warmer weather it’s now getting a little too hot but it’s looking like we will be finishing the warm spell with thunderstorms.

Cistus Flower

Fed up with men’s cards got a few now so should keep me going so I finally got round to use a new die from Altenew Cistus Flower. I’ve seen it on Pinterest with a black background but I decided to use the MFT basket weave stencil for it.

The sentiment is Simon says Stamp, I think it’s called Thoughtful Messages.

I have a Wedding in three weeks so I need to make a card, I’ve decided on the image just need to colour it in.

Bow Ties

 Time as seemed to speed up now the better weather is finally here. For some reason it’s even more of a struggle to get into my craft room. I think it’s the need to make masculine cards but there a couple in my drafts so I’m going to make what I fancy for a while.

My sister as mentioned that I’ve gone all clean and simple lately but I’m finding that’s the way to go for men’s cards including these bow ties from Stampin Up. Now I wish I had made extra knots to make it look more 3D but that will have to wait till next time.

 I’m rather pleased how this card turned out. Just as well it took ages to make. A lot of fiddly bits to layer and inked the edges to as well as embossed on the back to give a more rounder finish.

All the gardening detail is Sizzix but I used a MFT frame and the brick wall was using a stencil possibly Waffleflower but it’s lost it’s packaging. If there was one thing I could change would be the sentiment it needed layering to help it stand out better.

Harry Potter

 I saw a card on Pinterest and I had to get the dies from Stampin up, I suppose it’s only obvious to Harry Potter fans but I loved the idea. It did take some working out like how to get it central. Need to check Pinterest for other ideas or it was an expensive buy for one card.
