Pokemon birthday


I was asked to make a card for an 8 year old boy who loves anything Pokemon. I googled and found various images that I could download for free and printed out, cutting round the top left image and raising up with foam pads. I added the sentiment digitally on computer and then printed out on the surrounding image and cut out.


This is for:

Paperminutes 496:  it's party time
Crafty catz 380: anything goes + option: party time
Fussy & fancy 192: anything goes

Another birthday card for Joe

This is the second commissioned card for Joe. I used papers from Papermania Mister set (12 x 12 cut down for A5 card) and a car topper from Kanban long ago.


This is for:

Fab n funky 360: use a patterned paper
Jo's scrap shack 198: anything goes

Paru  July: birthday
Crafting with friends 48: anything goes

Happy birthday Joe


I was commissioned to make two birthday cards for Joe - this is the first. I used papers from Papermania Mister set (12 x 12 cut down for A5 card) and a car topper from Kanban long ago. The birthday sentiment was upcycled from an old card received. Just the addition of the J O E and the card was done.

CHNC challenge 343


This is my card for my CHNC challenge 343 - please click on the link to see what it's all about and I hope you will join in with the challenge - it makes sense to get on with Christmas creations while there is plenty of time to enjoy doing so without any panic ... and we are now getting towards the end of July.

The optional theme for CHNC challenge 343 is 'use an embossing folder'... but anything  goes as long as it's Christmas.

For my card I used a Delicious Doodles image called snowy postbox, colouring just the post box with a red spectrum noir pen, using a blender to make it look a bit old in places. I used a piece of holographic red mirror card with small stars all over it and ran it through an embossing folder by Embossalicious called 'let it snow'. The nordic woven ribbon, sentiment banner and flowers with pearls are from stash.

Not an easy card to get a good photo because of the reflection from the mirror  card, which looks darker than it is irl.
