Silver wedding anniversary


The panel on the left is silver matt foil card embossed with a folder that came with my eBosser - it is definitely silver although it looks golden at the top due to the flash photo.

Golden wedding anniversary


There seems to have been a run of special anniversaries lately, so I've made quite a few golden and silver anniversary cards recently.

This is a golden wedding one for which I used some My Craft Studio card for the background, a die cut of the wedding couple that I've had for ages and one or two other bits and pieces from stash, including the white Craftime flowers.

Springy dinosaurs for a four-year old


I was asked to make a birthday for a four-year old boy incorporating some springy dinosaurs.

I used a card blank that had cut out corners on the right, covering with some kraft sentiments card and cutting corners on the left to match the right so that the red sentiment card inside would show on the corners. The silver and red shapes were from a Kanban kit. The springy dinosaurs were from Poundland - some time ago, wish they still did them as I only have a few left.

I loosely followed the sketch given for Fetch a sketch 48:

CHNC challenge 122: ribbons and bows


Saturday has come round amazingly quickly once again. On Sunday evening my computer died an agonising death and so I ordered a new one on Monday. It was delivered on Tuesday and up and running straight away. I've heard lots of negative things about windows 8 so was a bit concerned, but I love it. I'm still wondering what the negative aspects are because I haven't come across them yet! Wednesday and Thursday were very busy with family, so there has been little time this week to blog. I have made some cards, a couple of which are for guest design slots that will be publishing at the beginning of May, so, of course, I can't show those yet. I've got other cards to show, but just haven't got round to blogging them - will do so soon.

So here I am with a new challenge on my CHNC blog and for this week's challenge 122 I'm asking to see Christmas cards with at least one ribbon and/or bow.

For this card I used and offcut of some matt foiled diamond embossed card, three different ribbons, one of which was also added as a bow. I used a very old Anita's baubles stamp (probably one of the first I bought), inked with versamark and heat embossed with detail silver, coloured with spectrum noir. The sentiment is one that was left over from a Kanban kit from long ago.
