Buttons!

Hello, it's the 5th of month which means it is time for a new challenge over at Sarah Hurley 365 and the theme is "Buttons".

I am just loving all the gorgeous new designs Sarah has launched over at the Silhouette Store and I used one of them to make my card.

This Circle Steampunk Cogs Page Mat is designed for a 12x12" page LO, but I resized it to 5x5" and it worked perfectly. Even though the design is very intricate and detailed, it still worked beautifully when resized. I popped buttons onto the cut out shape.

I used lots of 3d foam and placed it onto a piece of chevron card from an AFOMFT kit. I used the "Curio" stamp from Sarah's latest range for Personal Impressions


Ingredients
Curio Stamp set from Curio Stamp Set
Pearlised card, card blank and buttons from stash.

Thanks for popping by today, we would love it if you joined in with our challenge this month.

Craft for the Craic - Something with circles
Crafts 4 Eternity - Digital(Cameo die cut)

First Birthday Card.

It was our great neices first birthday during the week and I wanted to make her a special card with things she liked on it.

Her bedroom is festooned in lilac and pink owls, so I decided to use my Cameo to make the owl on this card. The balloon is a die cut and the number 1 is heat embossed and the stamp is from Sarah Hurley Block Alphabet.


Get Well Soon Card.

Whoops, I am running behind as usual and am using this rainy Sunday as the perfect excuse to stay indoors dry and cosy with a cuppa to play catch up.

This card is one I made for my Sarah Hurley 365 DT post. Full details are over on the blog.

It's time to celebrate!!

And what better way to do it than to make beautiful things to commemorate it. The Sarah Hurley Designs challenge is 4 years old this month and we are hosting a Celebration Themed Challenge.

I decided to make a baby card for a complete change! I am loving the different styles of journalling cards Sarah has over at the Silhouette Store and used the Baby Journalling Card as the main focus of the card. I stamped some tiny clusters of stars from the Doodle Doll Stamps and stamped them round the card with VersaMark ink then clear embossed them. I distressed the card using Worn Lipstick and Shaded Lilac Distress Inks. I cut an extra journalling card, and removed the baby word, distressed it with Black Soot DI and placed it on the chevrons. I popped the journalling card onto some 3D foam to give the card some dimension.

I used the Chevron Background Stamp, which I inked with lilac and pink pearlescent Brilliance inks, then covered with clear embossing powders and heat sealed it. Such a great look for not an awful lot of work. I really love inking this stamp up with different colours, it always looks great for a large background.


Ingredients
Brilliance Inks
Distress Inks
Clear Embossing Powder

I really hope you can join in with our Celebration Challenge this month. See you soon, Carol x

I would like to enter the following challenges;
Ladybug Crafts Ink - Baby
CCC Digi Creations - Digi/wet or dry embossing (journalling card is a digi file)

Card for a first birthday.

Another wee quick post from me tonight, this time it's a card I made for a wee boys first birthday.  The brief was the phrase "Love you to the moon and back" with silvers and greys as the colours.

The trusty cameo was used for this.




I personalised it with the wee boys name.

Hope you like this.Carol x

Brace yourselves, it's catch up time!


Whoops, I've been very naughty and forgotten to blog a couple/few of my makes, so hold on tight there are going to be a few blogs posts coming your way!

My first one is the card I made for my Sarah Hurley DT Showcase, and I am really getting to grips with my Cameo and used that to make the main feature of this card.


I used the Cellphone/Mobile Phone file from Sarah Hurley, and picked a journalling card from an add on from AFOMFT Kit. I made my background using a speech bubble stamps from an AFOMFT Kit and the words come from Everyday Sayings Stamp Set. 



Ingredients
Speech bubble and Phone "screen" from  AFOMFT kits 
Memento Inks

I hope you like the card, full details are over on my post on the Sarah Hurley 365 Blog. x
