A couple of quick cards to show you…
It was my mother and father-in-law’s wedding anniversary a couple of weeks ago, so I thought I’d whip them up a quick card…this was super fast and easy AND it gave me a great excuse to break out my new Deep Edge Garden Trellis punch by Martha Stewart which I purchased from the wonderful Joanna Sheen for the brilliant price of £15.99 inc P&P – and that really is a bargain, cos this punch is HEAVY! And I truly love this punch. I will be breaking it out in a video tutorial soon I’m sure =)
I also used a bunch of my flower punches to build a few custom flowers using patterned paper and some plain vellum. The sentiment is from a set I have fallen in love with called Jane’s Script by Woodware – it’s a very cute handwritten font, which is delicate enough for just about any card, but strong enough not to be overwhelmed by a relatively simple design.
This next card clashes somewhat with the first card – and was sent to the mother-in-law on the same day (eek) – but I just wanted to use some really bright colours with the Hero Arts CLINGS Antique Brocade stamp I got recently as the main focal point. Super simple card, but packs an eyeful of punch, lol! And not a corner rounder in sight; a rarity for me.
I’ll be back with a video tutorial soon. Just had a lovely weekend away with the girls – my friend Liz treated us to a night at a luxury hotel, with a spa facility, which was absolute bliss. So I couldn’t do any card making this weekend, but for once I wasn’t complaining! Although I did manage to squeeze in a quick trip to the craft fair at the NEC yesterday…so some new gizmos and products will be appearing in my next videos. Bye for now!
