Easter Boxes

I've made some little Easter gift boxes and matching tags. They're filled with mini eggs so hopefully they'll be popular!  ;0)

Roar like a Tiger

My favourite animals are cats, in particular tigers. I've loved them since I was very young and recall researching them for a project at primary school.  They're so beautiful and graceful, and I love watching documentaries about them.  The Siberian tiger is my favourite but there only a few hundred left so they're very endangered.  There aren't very many tiger images available either, but this cutie from Lee Holland fits the bill perfectly.

Party Hat

I can't remember the last time that I heat-embossed, but I like the white-on-colour embossed text and decided to give it a try on today's card.  The little meecie is from my new MFT set and I love this little guy doing his happy-dance!  I've stuck the sentiment banner with foam pads and created a little wave in it by alternating raised bits with areas stuck directly onto the card.

I'm grumpy without you

I love these cuties from CC Designs.  It's taken me a couple of attempts to make something that I'm happy with, but that's nothing to do with the stamps, more just me getting the right layout and colouring.  Isn't his expression just adorable.

Hello

I've opted for a fully loaded feminine card today in contrast to my recent flurry of CAS 'masculine' creations.  This one's been nobbled by hubby to give to his mum as a Mother's day card so I hope she likes it.  

It's also a change from my usual top (tent) fold cards because it has a decorated stand which holds the main card base.  I've also used one of my favourite Crealies double stitched circle nesting dies; they're such a fabulous size and this isn't even the biggest one in the set!

  • Sky: Tumbled Glass
  • Dress: Pumice Stone
  • Flowers: Worn Lipstick, Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany

Special birthday

This is the card I've made for my uncle's birthday next week.  He and my aunt are keen campers so this image is perfect for him.  I added some doodled stitching around the numbers for some added interest and also added a hand-drawn suitcase on the roof-rack because I didn't want to fussy cut the bars of the roof-rack!

80th Birthday

It's my uncle's 80th birthday next week and my aunt asked me to make him a card for her to give to him.  I really struggle with masculine cards so I hope this is special enough. It's a design I've used before but I've personalised it with both his name and age to make it a little bit more special.

  • Steps, hat, shirt: Frayed Burlap, Walnut Stain
  • Paint: Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany
  • Ground, brush: Hickory Smoke, Black Soot

Birthday Bunny

We want to know what your go-to colouring medium is at As You Like It Challenge this week. It's fairly safe to say that mine is watercolouring with my DI reinkers. I like not only how they look, but also the process of the watercolouring with the paintbrush and I take my time over it. Some of them can take me quite a while, but it's something I do for pleasure, not a race.

  • Fur: Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo, Gathered Twigs, Tattered Rose, Tea Dye
  • Grass: Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss
  • Sky: Tumbled Glass
  • Butterfly: Milled Lavender, Wilted Violet, Victorian Velvet
  • Daffodil: Fossilized Amber, Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge
