I apoligise for not blogging for a while but I have been really busy over the Easter break doing lots and lots of crafting. I have been making birthday cards and gifts for both my daughters, samples of wedding stationary for my eldest daughter, swaps for the training day in Reading at the end of the month as well as preparing for our next crop on Valley Park. My scissors haven't touched the ground.
Today I am going to share with you the card and gift that I made for my youngest daughter and I will post examples of other work that I have done later in the week.
This was the birthday card that I made. the colours of Pool Party and Calypso Coral go really well together.
Cardstock: Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Very Vanilla
Stampsets: Fresh Vintage ( Now retired), Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper : DSP Domestic Goddess
Punches: Decorative Label ( which is cut twice), Scallop edge boder, Large Oval
Embosslits die: Beautiful Wings
Paper piercing in the corners to finish. This was cased from Jo's website here
I next made a gift box from the mini carton die which is really great and has lots of uses.
Inside the sellophane bag there are 2 nail varnishes which I know she will love as she loves painting her nails.
Cardstock: Island Indigo, Very Vanilla
Paper : DSP, Everyday Enchantment ( now retired)
Ribbon: Ruffled ribbon in Island Indigo
Embosslits die: Beautiful WingsPearls to finish.
I have made another one for my eldest daughter in different colours which I will share with you later in the week.
Finally at the end of last week I met up with my sister in Oxford which is roughly half way between Southampton and Northampton where she lives. We usually try to do this 3 or 4 times a year , and we always visit the lovely cake shop which is in the covered market. My daughter isn't a lover of birthday cake so I bought her a small cake so that we coud have a slice.
They will ice them while you wait and the icing comes in lots of colours and purple is her favourite.
Thanks for visiting , please come back later in the week to see what else I have been making.
