Recent Birthday Cards

This is a birthday card that I made for one of my daughters best friends.  She is a huge Frozen fan and it was obvious which image I was going to use for this.  The image is of Elsa and was from Simply Betty Stamps but unfortunately she is no longer available.

I coloured her with promarkers and added gems to the snowflakes to add a little sparkle.  Backing papers are from my stash of free papers provided with my Papercrafter Magazines.  I used a heart dollie for the background of the birthday badge, which I printed off from my Silhouette machine.  I added a bronse coloured birdcage with some paper roses, pink feather embellishment with crystal gems stalks and a red rose at the base.  A paper rose raised border down the side and flower stickers to decorate.

This is a birthday card that I made for my friends little girl.  Her favourite colour is purple and is very girly.  I chose this image for her as its cute and has a baby elephant in it.  Image used is Ali and Elephie and is coloured with promarkers.  I then layered the card with different papers including cupcake papers centralising the theme around the colour purple.  The Red 5 badge is from a set I have on my Silhouette machine.  Decorated with Docrafts flower, using a rosebud for the centre and twisting the stem to make the swirls, a glitter star, gems and half pearls.

Wall Hanging for Ryleigh x

I wanted to try something new and so I thought I would try and combine a few different images together to see if I could do it.  I decided to do an A4 size picture so that I could put it in an empty pictureframe that I had spare and thought it would make a lovely hanging for her wall.

I used three different images.  Two from Make it Crafty and one from SBS, links to follow.  I used Promarkers to colour the whole picture.  I started out by laying down the Courtyard Background image from MiC and then placed the baby dragon digi at the foot of the stairs and then resized and placed the lovely Betty Addams Digi.  I love this picture and think all the digi's really go with eachother perfectly.

Get Well Soon Cards

Recently Betty of SBS was not very well at all and me and my daughter thought it would be nice for her to receive a lovely Get Well card from us to cheer her up.  I had already picked out the image I wanted to use and then Ryleigh decided that she wanted to use the same image so we made separate cards.

The top picture is my card.  We used image Rio and Little Venus from SBS. I used some strippy background paper and a strip of blue swirls.  Raised the image with foam pads to give a little height, stuck a few gems down the side and a couple of patterned stars to decorate, along with a big Docrafts flower and green brad.

The link for the digi is:
This is Ryleigh's card she made all on her own, even the colouring.  She is 6 years old bless her and has a heart of gold.  When I told her I was making Betty a card to make her feel better, she insisted on making one herself and I think she did a fantastic job.

This is a card that I made for a friend who unfortunately doesn't live locally anymore (she moved to America with her lovely husband) and who I haven't seen in years, but we have kept in contact via Facebook, so when I heard she wasn't very well I decided to make her a card to cheer her up.

The image is by Tiddlyinks and was coloured with promarkers, the papers and flowers are from dovecrafts and the embellishment was from a little local shop.
