Football card

Football Card

Starting to feel the ideas come back now. as i haven't really got many cards to make for people at the moment i offered to help a friend out on a forum i'm on with some cards for the charity she helps out with.
This is the 2nd one so far its from the new do-crafts range of new stamps called football mad by J Byars.
I was a little daunted as im not used to using stamps of this nature so i used a basic cards stock to stamp on to with a Archival ink ( coffee) and heat set it didn't think it needed heat embossing with clear powder.
i kept the papers clean line with some stamping up card in a brown and green and a darker green card stock matted and layered
Used some ribbon from some old chocolates added some glitterations dots as they make it look at bit more special
and lastly used the sentiment stamp sent with love

Thanks for taking the time to look x

Have fun ( new card with use of pro markers)

Have Fun

this is the 1st card i have made using my pro markers
as you can see i have been trying to experiment I'm hoping i did the stamp justice

The stamp was from pink gems designs
the sentiment was from do-crafts nostalgia era set
the card stock is paper mania new range
punch was the bargain Martha Stewart which is very pretty
added some gems on the corners of the sentiments and also the crown and her bow
The balloon was cut out separate and i added some silver cord on as the tie
also used glitter glue on the wings to add some bling

pro-markers colours used
blush - skin tone
lilac for the bow and the present and socks
baby pink for the dress
blender pen to add lighter colour
and metallic silver for the shoes

I'm pretty happy with my 1st attempt

England penny slider card

In this case was a 5p slider card but i like this. Images was from the net and the football was a image made smaller and punched out after was heat embossed



This was the 2nd scrapbook page i did

The papers was from do crafts co-ordinations
the little tags was peel offs which i cut around and added a little Teddie and a swirl and some ribbon
The Isabelle was cut using my cuttle bug
the image of the teddy bear was a digital scrap
peel offs was used again down the side of the image so i could add the date when Isabelle was borne
used a little circle sentiment from the PC and made it smaller to punch out and added a little brad which said" sweetie"
finally a cuttle bug embossing folder which was the baby image but only wanted the wording

I really enjoyed making these and i think more will be added soon x
