Cards for men

Morning folks!
How are we all today? I hope all is well and fingers crossed it stops raining today, hasn’t there been far too much?
I am eagerly waiting on my Christmas edgeables to arrive - I’ve never been so excited for Christmas in June!

As I’m waiting for the postman I have used the Plain Sailing kit from Hunkydory, to make some ever so hard to make male cards.
I made an 8x8 Card with a topper and some white-washed wood paper from my stash.
I embellished with some gold jewels.

I then used some decorated card with a topper, and embellished with some sentiment strips and some jewels.

Have a fab day. See you all soon, x

Father’s Day

Morning folks!
How are we all today? I am heading back to Norfolk as I’ve been up to Newcastle to see the awesome Take That!!! As I’m on the train I thought I would share a card I have made. 

I went for a little shopping trip with a friend to the range, I picked up some papers and thoughts they’d work perfectly for a Father’s Day card.
I made a card blank from kraft card and layered the papers onto the blank. I then used a corner rounder to round the corners. I cut the happy sentiment into kraft card. I layered the check patterned paper underneath the sentiment and again rounded the corners and assess some glitter epoxies. 
I stamped the fox 🦊 in tuxedo black ink and coloured him with spectrum noir markers. I stamped the tree In rich cocoa ink. I added a father’s day greeting under the happy. 

I decorated the inside to match. 

I would love to enter my card into the following challenge:
Cute Card Thursday  - Masculine.

Had a fab Sunday!! 
See you all soon!!! X x x

Unicorn birthday wishes 🦄

Hey! 
How are we all today?  
It’s grey and rainy in Norfolk so I have locked myself in my craft room and managed to make a card, while not getting totally distracted by the tv 📺!

I have used my unicorn 🦄 silhouette die.
I made the background with milled lavender, spun sugar, picked raspberry and dusty concord distress inks. I sprayed this with silver spray and sparkle.  I distressed the edges of the card with my scissors. I decorated with jewels and a Happy Birthday sentiment.

I decorated the inside with a happy birthday sentiment 

I would love to enter my card into the following challenges:

40th

Evening all! 
How are we all today?   It’s been gorgeous here in Norfolk so I’ve got 3 loads of washing done and lots of housework. All by 10am!  I had a headache so a little snooze then once I’d shifted that I locked myself into my craft room woooooooo!

I decided to make a 40th birthday card. 
I used centura pearl to make a 8x8 card blank.  I layered Kraft card and I used sew handmade paper.  I distressed the edges with scissors and tea dye distress ink.  I went round the edges with mercury glass stickles. I added the 40 and a Happy Birthday sentiment and decorated with a bow, die cut butterflies and finished with pearls. 

I decorated the inside to match and stamped a birthday sentiment inside too
I have listed this card in my Etsy store HERE
I’m now off to watch mission impossible- enjoy your evening!
See you soon x x x

Seahorse

Good afternoon!
How are we all today? 
  It’s blinking awful down here in Norfolk grey and cold and looks like it’s going to chuck down at any minute - yuck! 🤢 

I am here to share a card I have made today with the seahorse animal silhouette die from 
I made the card blank with Sheena card.  I layered black card onto this and then a piece of Sheena card I had coloured with milled lavender, dusty concord, tumbled glass, peacock feathers and chipped sapphire distress inks.  I splattered water over the card and lifted with kitchen roll.

I die cut the seahorse in black card along with a Happy Birthday sentiment.  I added the seahorse to the card with 3D glue gel.  I decorated with some lilac and blue jewels.

I decorated the inside with black and white card. I stamped a sentiment from the Happy Birthday mix and match stamp set.
I must admit I do like how this has turned out!
 
I hope you’ve all had a fab day!
See you all soon x x x

Peony

Morning! 
How are we all today?   I can’t quite believe it’s Sunday. My days are all over as I went to Jersey with work for a few days, now the bank holiday. I have no idea what’s going on lol! 

I had some craft withdrawal symptoms so I locked myself in my craft room for an hour or so yesterday. I managed to make a card. 
I had seen this card on the Crafters Companion instagram page and I cased it.  But it is slightly different.  
I made a card blank with Sheena white card. I embossed some white card with the studded leather 3D embossing folder and coloured this with the purple quick dry harmony inks. I then stamped the peony and foliage with the quick dry inks and cut them out with their matching dies. I layered the embossed card onto black card and then onto white card and again on black card. I had already stamped the greeting, and  attached to the card front. I layered the flower and leaves with 3D glue gel and added small black jewels. 

I decorated the inside with black and white card. And left it blank for your own message. 
I just love this peony flower. It’s defo one of my fave stamps EVER! 

I will have this listed in my Etsy store HERE.


Have a fab Sunday, it is Sunday yes? Lol 
See you all soon! X x x

Flamingo

Evening!
How are we all today? I hope you’re all well. I have been at work today, and as it’s been a nice day down in Norfolk no one came to book a holiday 😂. Fingers crossed it’s busier on Friday 🤞🏼

I am sharing a card I have made with the flamingo silhouette die.
Now I thought oh I won’t buy them all. But I picked my faves, then I went back and bought more - oops! 
I used Sheena card to make the background.  I used picked raspberry, abandoned coral and seedless preserves distress inks.  I layered this onto Matt black card and onto the card front. I cut the flamingo and the happy birthday sentiment and finished with some small black jewels 💎 

I decorated the inside with black and white card, and stamped a sentiment from the Happy Birthday sentiment and verse stamp set.
Those stamps are 1 of the best purchases I have EVER made! 

I am off to watch the football. No idea why I don’t support either Manchester team 😂
See you soon! X x X
