This turned out so pretty :), I did leave out a step but that is what happens when you just do what you can remember some days.
Used: Sizzix and Tim Holtz Dies, Zig Writers, Pearls, Kaiser Stamp, Black Ink (I am drawing a blank atm).
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 :).
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)
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.
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.
