Fathers Day

Fathers day is fast approaching here in Australia so I thought I better get going on some male cards.  I really don't enjoy making them lol!  The challenge this fortnight at Crafty Cardmakers and More is - No Patterned Paper.  Ideal theme for a male card I think.

Here is what I have used:

Paper/Card: Stampin' Up! Basic Black, Always Artichoke (I think!), Whisper White
Stamps: Stampin' Up! Motorcycle
Ink: Stampin' Up! Basic Black
Embellishments: Ribbon from my stash and American Crafts Cork Stars
Tools: Cuttlebug Gears Embossing Folder

So I just embossed the layers with the gears embossing folder and layered it up.  Pretty quick and simple.  

Thanks for popping by and don't forget to head on over and see all the other amazing creations this fortnight.

Welcome Baby Tilda

Hi there!  A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to become an Aunt again. Baby Matilda (Tilda for short) was born very early and was so very tiny.  She is doing well now and this is the card I made for her.  Of course it was appropriate to use a Tilda stamp!

Here is what I have used:

Paper/Card: Copic X-Press It Card, Stampin' Up! Pink Pirouette, My Minds Eye "Follow Your Heart - Be Happy"
Stamps: Magnolia Baby Tilda, Stampin' Up Tiny Tags
Ink: Memento Black
Embellishments: Stampin' Up! Organza Whisper White Ribbon, Twine
Tools:  Stampin' Up! Tiny Tag Punch, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Circle Die
Copics: Skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04
Hair: E33, E35, E57
Clips/Butterflies: RV10, RV21, RV13
Challenges: Just Add Ink - Just add a sketch

I paper pieced her outfit, socks and crown with the cute spotty paper from My Minds Eye.  I think everything else is pretty self explanatory but if you need to know anything just give me a shout!

Thanks for popping by,
