SYS2 Day 9- Card1

SYS2_participant

This one was a bit of a challenge for me as I just don’t have a lot of the sort of stamps that are suitable, however this buzz and bloom set and distress ink seemed to work well together. Thinking this will be my Mother’s birthday card this year.

A Birthday Card

Tiana Card

Forgive the pic I struggle to get good photos with Acetate. This is a card I made for my youngest Nieces Birthday earlier this month.

I used Kaisers Wonderland Acetate hand coloured with Alcohol ink. Add in a home made misted background, and a die cut happy birthday and viola a card is born.

I have to say in all honesty I was not 100% happy with it but as my niece absolutely loved her card I am happy she loved it :).

Tiana’s 10th Birthday Card

I am not sure I have ever admitted this here, but I don’t really see myself as a card maker, sure I make my own cards when the occassion calls for it but I sometimes struggle with ideas or execution.

Anyway the other week I bought some cards to make life easier re card making and because there are some very important birthdays coming up)

I started this card for my Niece by using some Funky Sellotape I had snagged quite some years ago and that has been sitting in my stash ever since. The boarder is Made using 2 different ones ‘Happy Birthday’ and ‘Funky Girls’

I then Stamped the cute little fairy/elf? and watercoloured it using Distress inks mostly picked Raspberry. I was quite pleased with how this quick card turned out and most importantly she loved it. (mistakes and all)

Dr Who + Washi Tape = Tardis Card

Every Dr Who fan knows as a crafter there is very little out there in the way of ready to use Dr Who craft stuff.

Soooooooooooooooooooooo imagine the excitement when Clearsnap posted a blog in conjunction with Viva Las Vegas Stamps and gasp, excitement, woo hoo

there was a TARDIS STAMP!!!!

ok so a blue police box aherm. So we had to have it, My Sister, My friend and talented Scrapper Toni and I all got the Unmounted one so that we could all get it with post for $10.50 each. If we had got it with the cling or block mounted it would have shot the postage up.

I was so excited to get my stamp, also having found out the same day I missed my sisters Fiance’s birthday.

I have also been playing a lot with washi tape.

So of course I sat down and this card was born

The Washi Tape is from Sawyers Place
I also used a dark purple stickles glitter glue
Some Silver Embossing Powder
A fiskers Happy Birthday Stamp

and Distress inks in various blue shades from memory: Stormy Sky, broken china, salty ocean and blue jeans.

As well as a white gel pen.

Other than the Happy Birthday turning out a bit smudged looking I am quite chuffed at how my first use of this stamp turned out.
