Looking back at my posts I've not kept up regularly - I've only done a few days of our Australian holiday and put in hardly any of my cards. So, unfortunately, I'm going to be boring the pants off you all whilst I catch up!
First of all, some of my cards:
This one is from Part 2 of the Jayne Netley CD and is a picture of a beautiful shell. I printed off the backing paper using a shimmer paper and the brown and white spotted ribbon is from my stash.
Now this one I sort of copied from an idea I saw on Create & Craft. All the images are from the same Jayne Netley CD and the flowers I think came from the Glitter Girls. The ribbon again is from my stash. The only problem with this card was I made it larger than the one I saw so it was more difficult finding an envelope. I shan't make it quite so large next time.
With the Crafter's Companion Beatrix Potter CD I decided I would make a never-ending card with Mrs Tigglewinkle. I had made one before having seen it on the TV demonstrated by Lili of the Valley and lots of people commented on. So I gave it a go. It really is very easy to do, its the decorating of the pages that takes the time. I took it to work and my tutor bought it as a birthday card for his wife.
So this is the front.
Here's the next page:
Here's the third page:
and here's the last one:
I thought it came out quite well but I may do a smaller one next time!
The last card for the moment, you'll be pleased to hear!!, is one from Joanna Sheen's Royal Horticultural Society CD. Again I think the idea for the card came from Debbi Moore when she was on C & C, with my adaptation.:
I printed the auricula design onto both vellum and also paper and the topper onto card. I've fixed the page turn up with a gold brad and added a couple of flowers from my own stash and coloured them in with inks. The card opens up with an insert which I made, using the same background paper again and popped a cream panel with an auricula cut out of the vellum on it so you could write on it.
That's all for now. Going to make some tea - what to have? Egg and bacon, sandwich or pizza? Oh for goodness sake - choices, choices. xx
