Splish Splash

Using precoloured images from Imagine That's "Rainy Day Fun" I have made a trifold card. 

Tried using a curved border die, wow! a lot harder than I thought, but I got there, more practice will definitely give me a better result (I hope).  Think next time I will also cut the base with the fancy border as well as the coloured toppers.

Hapy Birthday

If you are following the monthly progressive challenge at Outlawz, you would have received this cute image from Di's Digis "Chicken Run"

A window card this time.  After embossing the coloured cardstock and cutting the window, I then cut a small stitched frame. Also stamped (yeah! I rubber stamped) and diecut a sentiment. 

When you open the card you see the little chicken, image has been coloured with copic pens and fussy cut, mounted flat onto card, except for the cake which has 3d dimension behind it.

The Crafter's Cafe Challenge - Birthday - 15/5/17

The theme this fortnight at The Crafter's Cafe is Birthdays.  We have 3 great sponsors


I received "Birthday Friends" from Sprinkle n Sparkle, both line drawings, precoloured images and sentiments.

I decided to play around with a pop up card base and have some fun with a card for an older person.

So sedate and quiet on the front, patterned paper is from my stash and the "Make a Wish" sentiment is one from Sprinkle n Sparkle.

And when you open the card, the precoloured ladies, balloons and sentiment. The paper inside is from Stampin Up.



It's a Pop Up
