 I had this idea for a card in my head for a while but the idea was to colour the leaves but when I put the card together I couldn’t do it. I think I’ve been brainwashed from all the beautiful clean and simple cards I see on the Facebook group.

It’s all been stamped and embossed with gold. The leaves are a Simon says Stamp which I stamped twice so I could cut out the leaves. The butterflies are MFT which again I stamped twice, the bottom layer was cut using the matching die and I fussy cut the top layer. Sentiment again is Simon says Stamp.

For Mum

 It sad but I’ve not been making many cards and when I do I can’t show because they’re earmarked for family but this card will be taken down to the crematorium and can be shown.  The others when they’ve had their birthdays.
The image is Just Inklined not even sure they exists but is a beautiful image although not very simple to layer.
This is the card I started to make and knocked over the sansador so you can tell I wasn’t happy especially as it was for my mum. She likes fussy cards which why I added the frilly frame.

Balloons and Clouds

 Last ballon card and the one I finally decided to send. The balloon die is an old Penny Black one and the sentiment I think it’s from the new set from Hero Arts that I recently treated myself. 

The idea isn’t mine inspired by a card on Pinterest, just adjusting to fit whatever die and sentiments I have.

My mojo as definitely been lacking and when I do craft it all goes wrong. For example making my Mother’s Day card the background die wouldn’t cut well so I decided it was time to swop cutting plates but the one I swapped with needed a clean. I used sansador that I use for colouring to clean the sticky bits off but I somehow managed to tip the bottle over all over my coloured images, I could of screamed. Took a long time to clean everything up luckily only my coloured images suffered and was easy remedied by reprinting and colouring.

Balloon Trio

 I used some bright coloured balloons for this card still no clue what to do with them. Went to stick on a white card but thought it was too plain so I doodled a frame but now I’m not so keen may have to start again.

Balloon and Bow

 I brought this balloon die, I thought it would be handy. Now I knew it was large but didn’t realise how big and my brain went blank so I cased a DT card.

So I cut out the ballon with the stripes paper then I discovered I needed a bow which I didn’t buy. I hunted out my Avery Elle bow die and used that instead. The sentiment was a new MFT set that I though would fit the itty bitty die but it only just made it.

Well I thought I could make it to my craft room today but I feeling a bit yucky today.
