Wedding invitations

I am sorry not posted in a while, I have been busy with one thing and another and the time just flies by. Here is some wedding invitations and guestbook which kept be busy for a while.

The invites are 6x6 card blanks, the top layer is embossed part way and stamped and embossed words. I added a ribbon and dimante buckle to finish. The box is made to fit the invites 2 side by side, I used the same embossing folder and ribbon to decorate.

Please click on images for larger view

 For the guestbook I first printed my inserts and trimmed slightly, I then made my cover and scored one edge to fit just a little larger than the inserts. The layer is done the same as the invites, I made a personalised topper for the front and the spine was made to hide the edge of the pages. Ribbon was added to finish off. The guestbook box was made to fit and decorated to match.

You're A Classic

My post today is a card I made during a stamping session. I started with a 6x6 card and layered blue card leaving a small border. I cut 2 smaller pieces of blue card to create borders, and layered a spotty paper onto these after inking the edges. I inked the edges of the gingham paper and placed onto my first layer, then put on the 2 borders. I stamped onto water colour card with the car image using Tim Holtz weathered wood distress ink adn used a water brush to bring in the colour. I did the sentiment in the same way and layered my image and sentiment onto blue card, then I added card candi to finish.

Today is embossing day, my cards are made using a glitter girls embossing board 3 small frame embossing folders.
The butterfly card is simply made using the emboss to impress board by the glitter girls. After embossing and cutting the outline of the card I also embossed and cut the next layer and fan petals from some decorative papers. The fan petals were placed onto silver mirri card, this was then all layered and border peeloffs and butterflies were added. Flowers, gems and sentiment were placed onto my card to finish.

My next set of cards were all made in the same way using a6 cards. I chose 3 frame embossing folders and embossed onto white card. I matt these layers onto 3 different colours of card and trimmed to fit my cards. I then chose 3 colours of ink to match my coloured card and stamped my images onto my embossed designs. I then used ribbon, dies and gems in chosen colours to finish decorating them.

My friend Kathy and myself craft most days while chatting on skype. I was getting a little bit fed up of sitting in my craft room and not doing any crafting, I could never make my mind up as to what I wanted to make. I set myelf up with a daily craft planner with a different theme each day, this was because I also have lots of crafty stash I have bought and not used. My themes are:

Monday cricut/robo
Tuesday embossing folders/ embossing boards
Wednesday stamping
Thursday card kits
Friday decoupage
Saturday masks/stencils
Sunday cd roms/scrapbooking

Now I have something to craft each day and use different crafting items along the way. I am hoping that when I post I will show you what I have been up to with the theme for that day.
As today is Monday I am posting the card I made using my cricut a couple of weeks ago

This is a 6x6 card to which I added a black mat leaving a small border. My next layer I embossed with a creative expression folder and trimmed to fit onto my card. I made a small border from black card and placed down the side of my card. My image, small hearts and sentiment were cut using the cricut and cartridge Love,struck. I finished by adding border peeloffs hearts and gems. I gave this card to my husband on valentines day, he loved it.

Decoupage cards

My post for today is of cards I have been making the last few weeks using decoupage images. The first two images are of c6 cards simply using a Tonic die to cut into the card to create a decorative space for my images and placing coloured card behind. Once the images were placed I simply used peeloff borders, corners and sentiment to finish.

My next two images are using 6x6 base cards with matts to compliment the colours in the flowers. They both have an embossed layer with a die cut shape to fit the decoupage image. Before placing my image onto the die shape I inked through the die to show of the detail. I added ribbon, gems and sentiments to finish. All four cards are very simple, quick and easy to make. I really enjoyed making these.
