Pink and blue for you

And here is another imageless card I made at the same time as the other one I posted a couple of days ago. I wanted them to keep the same kind of style, as their birthdays were so close and they might see each other’s card. As I combined the previous blue card with green, I decided to use pink and blue for this one. The papers are Lili of the Valley and the flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts.

Time for an imageless card

It has been a long time since I posted a card with a pre-coloured image, but it has been even longer since I posted one without an image on it at all. In fact, I don’t remember when that even was. That means I am due to post one, I am sure!!

Here is a card I made for my aunt’s 50th birthday. One of the blogs I admire is by Klaudia and her posts inspired me to make this card. Check out the totally awesome stuff on her blog.

I roughed up the paper, which is solid purple card and Maja Design, to give it a shabby feel. All the butterflies and leaves are made using Noor Design dies. The numbers are using QuicKutz dies whereas all the flowers are by Wild Orchid Craft apart from the berry looking ones which are from Live and Love Crafts. LLC is also the place where I purchased the lace.

Tiddly inks DT call: eat more cake

So, it would appear that Tiddly Inks is holding a DT call. I have only recently ventured into the world of Tiddly Inks – their images too cute! What can I say, if you don’t already have some Tiddly Inks, you’re missing out! I just spent the weekend colouring up a few and cannot wait to make them into cards!

I made this card using my favourite of theirs: Eat more cake. To be fair, the name of the stamp is just as appealing as the stamp itself! One can never have too much cake!

Right, back on track. I’ve coloured the image in with Copics and distressed the image before adding frantage to the edges. I think this might be my first aqua and yellow card actually, but it is a great combo that I’ll definitely use again! I ruffled up the edges of the papers, which are from Papermania (the aquas) and something I don’t remember, as usual… The dies are Noor Design, the flowers Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts. I’ve used a Lili of the Valley sentiment stamp and some ribbon and cheese cloth from a local shop.

Birthday cake

I have lost my motivation, completely. I have managed to make a handful of cards the past month, but that is about it. I’ve not felt like updating the blog, even though I have had photos ready to put up. However, it is time to snap out of it and carry on. So here is another card.

I have used a pre-coloured topper by Lili of the Valley, as well as lots of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. Most of the other stuff is bits I have had laying about for quite a while, and lost the lables a long time ago.
