Anyway, they are a bit fiddly to stamp, as those cats are soooo small! I persevered though and made this card for my friend...it's her birthday tomorrow. Hope she likes it!!
I made this card a couple of nights ago, using a set I bought recently from the QVC clearout shop in Warrington. This set consisted of papers and 3d rub-ons, which I thought I would open up and have a go with. The rubons are quite thick, good quality and really easy to use!
I was asked to make a card for a Grandad, for his birthday, with a rugby theme. Looking through my stuff, I realised I have hardly anything for a rugby-themed card! I did find this cute pink petticoat image though, in all my stuff.... and luckily, the person who asked me to make this, was very happy with it! Phew! (Dovecraft papers used and image coloured with chalks.)
I made this card with an embossed frame from craftwork cards...i bought it at the Leigh show last weekend. I just mounted it on 3d foam, to give the frame a bit of lift from the card. I printed the computer generated sentiment straight onto the card from the computer and added a few sparkly little gems onot the middle of the flowers.

Yes, erm... Smirk papers. Yes. My friend bought me some of these for my birthday so I thought I would make some quick cards with them over the weekend. For this card, I cut all the little squares right down and made them into this card...
I decoupaged the "born to shop" sentiment on this card and added a bit of glossy accents here and there.....
This paper is so lovely... I only added a flower and a pearl. I might add a stamped sentiment at some point, if the need arises....

I bought this image a while ago, from PCCrafter (its by the artist Debbie Mumm) and I love it! I generated the image on the pc, and matted it onto some paper I have had for yonks... thought I would finally use it! I just added some punched flowers on the edge, with some hand-drawn stalks.
This is another image from Debbie Mumm... I decoupaged the cat, the cushion and the frog and plantpot. The frame is also decoupaged onto the card to give a bit of depth.

I made this card for my mum, with those fab V&A papers, and some punched flowers and leaves.
of vourse, I have found a nice sentiment for her....
I have made this similar one for my mother-in-law...
And I made these for a friend who asked me to make her a mothers day card for her mum, and one for her aunty who is like her second mum...what a lovely idea! (I have given her the choice of two for her mums card.) I hope she likes what I have made for her.... xxx
