Bunch of lilacs

Yet another post with card made on order.

This one was to use greens and purples, and she picked out a pre-coloured bunch of lilacs by Lili of the Valley. I do love these pads of beautiful images. The lady who requested it wanted it to be similar to another card. You can see a thumbnail image of that card on the right.

I bought ribbon in a local shop to match the green First Edition Paper Pad paper. The purple paper is by Papermania. All the flowers on the card are purchased at Wild Orchid Crafts. I also used punchers by Martha Stewart to make the edge around the card and the little leaves behind the flowers. The name tag in the middle was glued on the sides and put on a foam sticker in the middle so it bevels, looking like it goes around the vase; that was the idea of it anyway! And then I used pearls to sort of ‘nail’ the two text tags in place.



Just a quick card post. I made this card on request where certain colours were to be represented. This one has been made with Martha Stewart punchers, Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and pearls, ribbon from a local shop, and a pre-coloured image by Lili of the Valley where I used pencils (! That’s a first!) to colour in the red.

It’s been a while since I posted anything again. Work still takes up quite a lot of time, but lately I have spent a lot more time on crafting as well. Soon I will get more added here as well. I must have made about 30 cards so far this month. It’s a bit therapeutic and it’s nice to be properly back into it.

This card was made on request by a co-worker. She picked a card I’ve posted on the blog previously and said she wanted something similar, but slightly bigger and purple was a must. You can see the card she picked out on the right here. This is what I came up with.

I have used a pre-coloured topper fromThe Hobby House. The purple paper is Papermania. There are a lot of Wild Orchid Crafts products used as well: all the flowers, the purple ribbon and bow, and the heart shaped doily. The lace is purchased at Bikuben, and the punchers are by Martha Stewart.


Bowl of sweets

Some co-workers requested a card a couple of months ago (yes, I am that far behind on posting cards here now..) for another co-worker. It was to be pink and sweet and lovely. This is what I came up with.

I have used a pre-coloured toppers from Lili of the Valley; from one of their gorgeous coloured pads. Most of the other products are from Wild Orchid Crafts, Martha Stewart and Papermania.
