Arte y Pico Award

Thank you so much to Rainbow Lady for giving me this award. I feel very proud, as I am very new to Blogging. There are some rules attached to this and before I pass it to my chosen 5 blogs, I would ask you to bear with me whilst I sort myself out. Here is a link to the Arte y Pico blog.

Bookmark Birthday Card

I made a second bookmark with the embossing using Sparkle n Sprinkle wisteria embossing powder from Joanna Sheen, a slightly different flowersoft coloured scarf and lilac gemstones instead of pearl finish stones. The back of the bookmark is finished in the same backing paper as the happy birthday strip and Nellies clothes.

Bookmark Challenge

I made this for the bookmark challenge set by Rainbow lady for her weekly challenge.

I used pearlescent card, stamped and embossed a swirl pattern in the top right hand corner and embellished with a couple of self adhesive stones. The image is Sugar Nellie with a flowersoft scarf. All topped off with a very precious tassle!

Some more Easter Cards

Here are the two other Easter cards I have made. Both of the images and background papers are from Joanna Sheen's Cardmakers Year cd. The first one has had flowersoft added to the blossoms on the branches.

Easter Brads

I was asked to make three Easter cards this week. They are to be sent to adults rather than children, so rather than using cartoony type characters, I used images from Joanna Sheens Cardmakers Year. I attached the picture to the front of the cards using brads. Not a very experimental use of brads but effective none the less. The inside of the card is a pop up smaller picture and an embossed cross. The greeting is on a large piece of paper as the lady who ordered the card is visually impaired and needs a large space to sign her name.

Gracies First Birthday

I made this card for my sister in law to give to her niece. I used a cuttlebug embossing folder for the bubbly background, a Moorehead decoupage and cut the silver mirri card letters on my Cricut machine. The G, A & E are all stuck to the card and the R & C are on foam pads so they stand slightly proud.
