Yummy Cupcake 2

Well, after I stamped several images of my cupcake the other day when I made the card for a friend, I thought I should make good use of them!

For this one I used the same sentiment but with an added ribbon and some different backing paper.

Card blank: Craftwork Cards
Image: Hero Arts Giant Cupcake
Coloured with Prismacolor pencils
Backing Paper: NitWits Never Not freebie from Simply Cards & Papercraft issue 73
Bazzill Basics Pirouette swiss dot card
Sentiment: Pink Petticoat Tiny Alphas
Pink knotted ribbon
Diamond Stickles

Thanks for looking.

How Old!

I have suddenly become as busy as a bee! With Dad's birthday on Tuesday I had another card to make this weekend....and here it is!

For Father's Day I used one of Di's Digi Downloads for Dad and I went back and bought this one for his birthday. It's called Gardening Pop.

I really enjoyed colouring the image and was really chuffed with it!

I have been rather cheeky and put 'How Old!' as Dad is 81 this year.  Although it is a male card I wanted to make it bright and cheerful as although Dad is in his eighties I am sure he doesn't feel it!

Background: Hero Arts Branch Background
Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Broken China, Wild Honey, Barn Door, Peeled Paint
Edges touched round with Wild Honey
Picture: Gardening Pop - Di's Digi Downloads
Coloured with Prismacolor Pencils
Woodware chipboard letters coloured with Distress Inks above
Button and twine from stash

Thanks for looking!

Yummy Cupcake

Hi there. Totally dreadful weather here today. To say it's blowing a gale is to put it mildly! Only plus point is that the rain has stopped temporarily.

I have been so wrapped up in kids doings and shop stuff that I have had little time for ages to make any cards. However I managed to finish one today for a friend's birthday! I bought the Hero Arts cupcake cling stamp absolutely ages ago and although my kids have used it, this is the first time for me.

I have found that I am becoming a regular purchaser of Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine just lately. Well, what actually happens is I buy a copy and then every time I go to Tescos or the like I am looking for the next issue, even in the knowledge I have only just bought the previous one! I am not saying that I am becoming obssessed with card making but hubby will no doubt disagree. I tell you what though, it comes to something when you go out somewhere and hubby starts poining out possible card making materials that might interest me!

Anyway, the backing paper was a freebie from issue 73. The collection is called Never Not from NitWits. The paper was layered onto Bazzill Basics swiss dot Pirouette paper which is a lovely pink.  

The image is coloured with Prismacolor pencils to match in with the paper and some Diamond Stickles were added to make it all sparkly and girly. The sentiment is made up of Tiny Alphas from a Pink Petticoat download.


The card blank was from Craftwork Cards.

A side view to finish showing the 3D effects!

Thanks for looking! Have a great weekend all.
