Feathery Birthday

My card today is for an upcoming special male birthday, I had this masterboard laying around that was a bit dark and murky, so I thought it might work for this card being that it was for a male. I got to use my feather die cuts for the first time as well as my new birthday die cut. I embossed across the top of my masterboard with an embossing folder, layered the die cuts then stamped wishes under the birthday sentiment. I also dabbed some Perfect Pearls Mist on just to give it a little bit of something else.

I'm adding my card to:
Aud Sentiments: Masculine + Sentiment

Thanks for popping in....

Monochromatic Birthday

I've made this card with my cousin who is having a birthday next week. As it is a male card, I have gone with monochromatic colours and used one of my new dies and a bit of bling to make it pop a bit.
I am adding my card to the following challenges:

Birthday Bubbles

A wet Saturday here in North Queensland, Australia but that's a good thing as we desperately need the rain and it makes it a perfect day to play in my craft room. I have a male 50th coming up next week and I really didn't know what to do for the card but after seeing the latest sketch over at CAS Colours & Sketches, I thought this would work nicely. I had some premade master board laying around which I thought would look good framed in black so that's what I went with. I stamped the bubbles, highlighted a few with white gel pen and mounted the sentiment over the top. I'm adding my card to the following challenges....

Floral Birthday Wishes

Another card and it's for another special birthday...this one is for my Cousin's daughter who turns 30 in a couple of days. Again, I have used a masterboard that I had laying around that I mounted on coloured card. For this card, I also got to use another new die,(the flowers) and a new stamp from a stamp set that I got for Christmas....loving using my new things! 😊

Happy Birthday...21 today!

Hello Stampers! Well it's been a while since I have posted on my blog but as we know it's been the 'silly season' where life just gets so hectic. In saying that, for me it was hectic leading up to Christmas but then it all came to a halt! We had a quiet Christmas with family and a very quiet New Year. DH had to work and DD - 19 & DS -20 went out with their friends to bring the new year in, so I ended up home alone...I could have gone to the neighbours but I just couldn't get motivated so actually happily stayed home and did a movie marathon, something that is a first for me. I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and had fun bringing in the New Year and are all ready for a crafty 2017.
I made this card for DD's boyfriend who has just turned 21 and I got to use a new die, one of my Christmas presents to make it. I had the masterboard laying around and thought it looked good with die cut out in black. So I framed it in black, stamped the 21 and wrote today! on it by hand (something I really don't like doing) and mounted it on another die to finish it off. He liked it and made a point of telling me he really liked the card so I am very pleased.
I'm posting my card to....
