I may not have been blogging that much, but I have been busy trying to catch up on my crafty "to do list" so here's the first round up of some of the things I've been making.
Last week I showed the card I made for Rosie's "special" birthday but I wasn't too happy with a couple of bits on it, so I did some tweaking before I sent it. It was only a teeny weeny change but I liked the card much better once it was done.
I used: WRMK Vintage Brass Papers, Glossy Accents, Prima flowers, brads, Cuttlebug flower & pot die
I only put a couple of sneak peeks of the front cover of the maze book I made last week, so here's the full view.
I used BG Colour Me Silly papers throughout, plus scraps of Bazzill card and loads of ribbons and fibres from my stash. I read that BG are discontinuing these papers, which is a shame as it's such a fun, cheerful range - I like some of the new stuff, but it all gets a bit same-y, don't you think? They seem to be dropping the really vibrant, textural ones that I go back to time and time again.
I'm busy with a few commissions at the moment. This one is for another of those Ladies with names beginning with "J" who are celebrating their 60th birthdays around now - J must have been the most popular initial for names 60 years back - this is the 3rd I've done in the last month.
I used: BG 2 Scoops Papers, Various flowers, including a chipboard one, Cuttlebug scallop flowers die, beads & Glossy Accents, ribbon from Ribbon Oasis
Daring Cardmakers Team member Saffa is now on "maternity leave" having given birth a couple of weeks ago to twin girls Zaynab and Tasneem. Her crafty creations have always been wonderful and no doubt these latest two are even more beautiful! This is the card I made to welcome them to our world.
I used: Blonde Moments papers, chipboard flowers from Bubbly Funk, Cuttlebug scallop flowers die, Craft Robo for letters, Krylon silver pen, Ribbon from Ribbon Oasis
And lastly for today a few Valentines cards. These will go in the box on Hubby's desk. He tells me "they won't buy pink" so I've done a couple of less obviously girly ones to see if they like those better!
I used for these two: paper from BG Scarlet's Letter paper pad, Cuttlebug heart die, ribbon from stash
Mixed the pink with some red and used up the last of a sheet of cute paper I bought last year for these two - I forget what it is though. The 2nd card uses more of the UTEEd hearts I made for last week's DCM Red & White dare.
