Hi, Well I've finally finished the card for a friend's grandson's 1st birthday. I would have liked to have posted a card that I had stamped and coloured myself, but as I do not own any stamps fit for the job, I have resorted to some die cuts that I already had tucked away in my crafty room. I used patchwork pals die cuts and paper & card. For his name and age I used some large die cut letters and numbers that I've had for quite a long time and they do prove useful sometimes, when someone wants a card big and bold. In fact I've been asked to make a similar card for my boss's granddaughter's 2nd birthday, as everyone liked it so much, so it can't be too bad!! I designed it as an easel card and on the base inside the easel I've put a pocket so that she can pop a little something inside for him. I finished it off with silver peel off's as she wanted Grandson on the card also.
My second posting is using the feather stamps again but this time in blue and red. I stamped the feathers straight onto the red card and covered with gold perfect pearls to create a background affect. I then stamped the feathers with versamark and dusted perfect pearls over again onto blue card. I love using PP's as they give almost an embossed look. I matt and layered both of the feather designs onto gold, red and gold cardstock to give a bold affect. Two different colour ribbons, a couple of gems and all finished.
Thanks to everyone who is kindly following my blog, and a big TU to Eileen for putting the word out, I just hope I can live up to all your standard of work. BTW is anyone going to the NEC in March, I'll be there as usual.... Bye for now.. Dee x
