Male Themed Gift Bag

I decided to make a male themed gift bag, basically because sometimes you just need to step away from the pinks and yellows!

I've used two sheets from the Heartfelt Christmas 8x8 paper pack and created a gift bag that would fit a cd or dvd.  I've punched holes in the top and threaded some garden twine through for the handles (I bought a rather large ball a while ago so have to use it up somehow!)

I then cut a tag using the Posydoodles Tags die from an off-cut of kraft card, again punched a hole in the top.


The sentiment has been cut using the Celebrate sentiment die - I coloured an off-cut of white card with Promarkers to match the greens on the bag.


To finish, I dotted a line around the edge of the tag with a black fineliner pen and added a half pearl.

Daring Card Makers Challenge - Wedding!

It's time for a new Daring Card Makers challenge and the theme for this week is

Wedding

I'm the host and its my challenge as I celebrated an anniversary recently!  I've used a Jellypark image that was drawn especially for me for my cousin's wedding a few years ago and it never went on sale!  This time I've used it for a work colleague as her friend is getting married.


I've coloured the image with Promarkers and added liquid pearl dots around the edges of each layer; sentiment is computer generated and I found the diamante buckle slider in my stash.

Good luck with the challenge!

Simple Birthday

I've gone for something quite quick (well, if you take out the drying time) and simple to make using ink sprays (purple and blue) and then a silver spray that was gifted to me a long time ago.

I layered it onto black card before adding to my card blank.  To keep it as flat as I possibly could, I pop it under the cushion that I sit on at my crafting table (its a really hard chair) and that seems to do the trick!


I cut the Posydoodles Happy Birthday dies three times out of the silver card, glued them together (again under the cushion on my chair) and then added to the front of the card.

Daring Card Makers Challenge - Cut It Up

It's time for a new Daring Card Makers challenge and the theme for this week is

Cut It Up

I've made some layered windmills to dress up three gift boxes I bought a while ago and not done anything with!  The papers are Dovecraft Back to Basics 3 and because they are single sided papers, I glued two sheets together before I cut the windmill shapes using a really old template set from Lakeland.


As they are quite 'bulky' I used foam pads in between the layers and topped off with a brad in the centre of each - I've had these brads for years and just kept thinking they were too pretty to use..... but I need to use my stuff as I have a lot!!

Using Up Scraps

I admit, I am a bit of a hoarder and I don't like to throw off-cuts of paper or card away unless its tiny.  So I have a few folders that they all go in, with same download or cd clipped together for easy future reference.

I was making some Father's Day cards and came across these off-cuts from the Sticks and Bones download.  I used the Posydoodles Tags die and the Happy Birthday die as I wanted to keep it quite simple.  Plus I used a kraft card blank and a piece of vellum.


Because the scraps were not big enough to fill the card, I had to be creative and use blocks, cutting to size as I went.


I cut the sentiment twice for extra depth and layered up as shown.  I then added some twine to the top of the tag, some half pearls and doodled a running stitch around the panels for extra effect.


Great quick card!  I'd like to enter the following:

I've stamped the sentiment with one I got free in a magazine some years ago and the half pearls are from my stash.  Good luck with the challenge!

Daring Card Makers Challenge - June Elemental

It's the first Friday of the month so it's time for a Daring Card Makers elemental challenge!

Here is the inspiration for you to choose at least three elements from (colour counts as one):


I've used wood effect, large letters, tag, leaves and a nature themed background.


The paper is from Do Crafts - Mr Mister card pack from a few years ago - this is actually the reverse of one of the cards (I've used every element including the envelopes to make cards!) and I've used the wooden letters as a template - these are kraft card cut offs and I've distressed them with an ink pad.

The leaves have been cut from a cut off piece of card that I've coloured with Promarkers and then added.  The metal tag is a brad which I've had in my stash longer than I care to remember; and finished it off with some waxed cord.

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

I've added some balloons with wire and I used the round body of the snowman from the Happy Festive Snowman die!  I've coloured them with Promarkers and then added lots of glitter glue so that they sparkle.  To hide where I've added them to the card, I've added a big bow and a cake charm.

I recently bought, by accident, some long thin envelopes that are thinner than a normal DL size so I've been looking out for images that would suit the size, hence using this Floral Border from Bugaboo.

I've coloured it with Promarkers plus added two different sized half pearls to the centres of some of the flowers.  I layered the card onto some black card from my stash and then added the black half pearls to the sides to finish.

Baby Shower Gift

I have a work colleague who will be going on maternity leave soon but before she does, we are holding a baby shower for her!  I've never been to one so don't quite know what to expect but didn't want to arrive empty handed so I have made her a little gift box which holds some treats for her!

I've made the box and added a gift tag cut using the Posydoodles Basics Tags - I've also cut the two other smaller tags too from the same set.


I've used the rather cute Beary Great Day clear stamp which to be quite honest, is totally perfect for a new baby card.  I've used Promarkers to colour plus glossy accents on the nose and eyes.


And to finish, for the stamped sentiment underneath the bear, I've used the Bee Nice clear stamp set as the Special Delivery sentiment was just perfect!


I've handwritten the other tag plus used ribbon and a half pearl from my stash!  I'd like to enter the following:
