It's been a while.....
No real excuse but I haven't posted for ages so I've quite a few cards to share...
This first one was commissioned card for a friend at work; it was for her Mom's 60th Birthday.
The next one was for a friend's birthday using a new LOTV stamp purchased at the NEC show and a new Martha Stewart border punch (also bought from the NEC!).
This was a fairly quick card I made for a guy at work on the birth of his first baby. Scalloped frame was made using one of my new nestabilities dies. I personalised it by adding the name 'Alex' in pink alphabeads threaded onto a wine glass ring and then tied onto the ribbon strip with more ribbon.
This next one didn't photograph very well. I stencilled black distress ink through a Crafter's Workshop stencil onto gold pearlised card. In real life the effect is really nice but in the pic it looks a bit washed out. Think I'll try it with black acrylic paint as it might appear stronger.
