Way too long!!

It has been way too long since I last posted here on my blog....6 months actually! It has also been that long since I really put ink to card as well, but what better reason than my husband's birthday tomorrow.

As I was lacking inspiration and mojo I decided to browse the web for inspiration and CASE a card. The card I CASED was this one here and I kept mine pretty close to the original only changing the embossing folder to the Fancy Fan one as it reminds me of shells and the size of my squares are a little smaller as I used a punch to get them the same size. I also decided to mount my front panel onto some Midnight Muse cardstock and decorate the inside as well.

Here is my card...

Well I can't guarantee that this is the start of some new posts but I do have my daughter's birthday coming up in a couple of weeks and I should make a card for her too. With all my craft supplies I can't imagine buying a card to give them.

If you have managed to pop by thanks and I am sorry for the lack of posts and inspiration lately.

Enjoy your weekend.

Friday, October 3, 2014's another baby card and JAI challenge!

This week's challenge from Just Add Ink is from Trish who is also expecting a baby and so it is appropriate that the challenge is...


I am also on a roll at the moment making a few cards on this theme as friends and relatives alike have been popping them out too...babies that is not cards.

So I just had to make one for this challenge and as I had already made two baby boy cards (almost identical) and one baby girl card in the same style, I thought I would challenge myself to change styles and to make another baby girl card in a pink monochromatic colour theme.

This is what I came up with...

I was quite happy how this card came out in the end as I let it sit on my desk for a while (not stuck down) and played around with the layout, switching ribbons, swapping elements etc until I was satisfied and stuck it all together.

Pop on over to Just Add Ink and check out what other beautiful baby projects the other team members created and then find some time to join in our challenge this week.

Baby Cards

As I said in a previous post I had some baby cards that I needed to make and so as I have been lacking in creativity and inspiration lately...why not get inspired by some of the talented demonstrators that I know of!

One such lady is Teneale Williams and she makes the most beautiful cards, works of art actually, and she is also a fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator so uses lots of the tools and resources that I have access to.

The two following cards have been CASED from one on her blog here and I also took inspiration from the way she photographed her card too!

Although the 'its a boy' card may look like Teneale's I am sure if we placed them side by side in real life they would be different as I know she puts a lot of time and dimension into hers with lots of detail (just check out a video of how she makes a card here).

I followed her use of Wild Wasabi and Pear Pizzazz and agree that even though they are two different tones of green they do work well together on this design.

I can see why she was happy with her card because I was too and so I thought I would replicate the design into an 'it's a girl' card as I needed one of those as well.

With this one I just swapped the stamp I used from 'little feet' to 'little hands' and added a couple of cute little pink buttons as well on the front.

I didn't have the Little Additions stamp set so couldn't add the cute little jumpsuits that she did on the inside of her card and I also had to improvise to add the little red hearts.

Thanks so much for the inspiration Teneale.
