This card is too sparkly...

Sharing a card today that I actually made recently for a change!! I have had this Kaisercraft stencil for ages and only just found it again whilst routing through my stencil box. I combined it with the new Aladine texture  paste and some gorgeous Wow Sparkles glitter . Finished off with a fab saying from a Wow stamp set, ideal for anyone who loves anything glittery.

Shaker card

Another card from my folder I never got around to posting about. This was my daughters card and it was difficult to photograph. It’s a ptent style with an aperture created by a Papertrey Ink Die . I attached some acetate and sequins to make the shaker element. The cup cakes have been coloured with Spectrum Noir Glitter Pens. Finished off with a Lawn Fawn die and stamp set Happy Birthday. I did add a little banner punch at top which is from Stampin Up with a little Anna Marie stamp. I die cut one of my Presscut Stitched Rectangle dies on some wood effect paper from stash for the background. I finished off with a few clear sequins.

A birthday is not complete without a....

Another card from my album, this time it was one I made for Kerry at Kraftbox for her make and take day I helped her with. I used a stencil to create the spots and I used different coloured Inks on each letter. The stamp was stamped directly onto the card blank and then stamped again on another piece of card a letter at a time and then stencilled through with some ink, cut out and attached with foam pads back on to the main stamped image .The sentiments were also part of the set. Great card idea for young or old!

Balloon card

Hi there, I have been going through my photos trying to find cards I have made and not posted. This card uses Stampin Up products.

The glitter card was in last year Sale-a-bration and I used the balloon punch which is still available to create the balloons. I free hand drew the strings coming down with a marker pen. The background is embossed using one of their embossing folders, really meant to be snow but it can be used for other occasions. I added a little strip of mirror card and a tiny slither of the glitter card down the side. I used some old Silver elastic to create the bows and finished off with a sentiment. I did shape the balloons with a ball tool to create a bit of dimension .

Products used:

SU Balloon punch 
SU Glitter card/mirror card
SU Silver elastic thread
SU Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set 
SU Embossing Folder Softly Falling
SU Marker pen Bermuda Bay
SU Black ink 

Hope you like it, have a lovely day

Tulip card

Hi there , I hope you are having a fabulous Easter. Today’s card is the one I made for my grown up children and my mum and dad. The tulip stamp and the sentiment  is from Clearly Besotted and I stamped it on watercolour card and coloured with Zig Pens. The dies are from My Favourites Things.
Very quick and easy but I was short on time.
