Hanami Garden

When I saw the new Hanami Garden collection at my local Kaisercraft store, I was in love with this delicious collection! I rarely buy the 12x12 papers as usually the 6x6 size is more suitable for cardmaking. For this A5 sized card, the larger papers were perfect!! I also used the die cut from the Collectables to make this card. I'm adding this to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Use Patterned Paper.

Materials:
Paper - Kaisercraft Hanami Garden collection and glitter cardstock
Dies - Winnie and Walter Happy, MFT Large Numbers, Tim Holtz Scribbles and Splat
Stamps - Concord and 9th 
Ink - Hero Arts 
Others - Kaisercraft pearls

A feminine 60th birthday card

We had double 60th celebrations at work this week. I made this card inspired by the colours of the current Altenew June inspiration challenge. I ended up making two cards as I was not happy with the darker colours of the first card. I thought I would share both cards but I prefer the lighter one! The first card was made by stamping with distress inks and I brushed the colours into the background and overstamp with black ink afterwards. The second card was made by stamping the images in black first and then colouring the background with distress inks. Both cards were A5 size. Thanks for dropping by!

Materials:
Stamps - Altenew Wild Hibiscus, Winnie and Walter Happy Everything
Dies - MFT Big Numbers
Inks - Distress Inks Picked Raspberry, Tea Dye, Worn Lipstick and Ripe Persimmon
Other - Ranger Liquid Pearls

A Baptism Shaker Card

I made this card recently for a baby's Baptism. As I do not have any religious stamps or dies (except for Christmas ones), I had to think outside the box or card in this case! I made this card a recent craft day at a friend's place. I marked out the cross with sticky tape and then carefully cut out the outline on the card. I was about to make the shaker card with acetate when my host asked if I wanted to try the fuse tool to make the shaker. So I tried it. So easy! I added sequins inside the fused pocket with some diecut and finished off the card with the name of the baby embossed in gold. This is for A Blog named Hero's Interactive Challenge and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Emboss It. Thanks for dropping by!

Materials:
Cardstock - Hero Hues, gold cardstock
Patterned Paper - Kaisercraft
Dies - Hero Arts, Mama Elephant Hearts and Sequins
Stamps - Hero Arts Congrats Stamp n Cut, HA Kelly's Outline Letters
Others - Versafine, Hero Arts Gold EP, Fuse tool, plastic pockets,  sequins from various sources







An 80th Birthday Card

This card is for a family friend of my Italian partner. When he asked me to make this card, he wanted an Italian greeting. I used the Altenew stamps for the background and sentiment, the background colours were based loosely on the current Altenew June inspiration challenge. When I was finished with the card, I was not happy that I met the challenge, so stay tuned for the next card!! Anyway, I think she would like the card! Thanks for dropping by!

A masculine tag card

I've made some masculine tag cards last weekend on a crafting day at a friend's house. The great thing about crafting with friends is trying out their stash! There were a few of us madly die cutting this great set from Tim Holtz - Scribbles and Splat. Our host kindly passed everyone three tags and I thought it would be great to combine the die cuts with the tag for a masculine card. (I never seem to have enough!) I'm adding this card to Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Masculine and Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes. Thanks for dropping by!
