Star Wars!

Well if you didn't know by now my son is a huge Star Wars fan.  I think he always has been.  We took him to see the latest Star Wars movie recently for his birthday.  This is the card I made for him.  I mentioned in an earlier post about my recent addition - my Minc machine and I just knew that I had to bust it out for a C3PO card!  I found a free colouring page download and printed it off then foiled it with gold and my Minc machine.  I love how it turned out.  Super simple yet effective.

Here is what I have used:

Paper/Card: Kaisercraft White Card Base, SU Basic Black, Whisper White, gold foil paper from my stash.
Stamps: Free colouring page download from the internet.
Ink: Laser Printer
Tools: Minc Machine, Gold Minc Foil, Embossing Folder, Numbers Die

Thanks for popping by!

Crafty Cardmakers and More #155

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a safe and enjoyable break.  We spent some lovely time with our family back in Adelaide and we are now slowly getting back into the swing of things.  Although the kids do still have another 3 weeks of school holidays!  Our challenge this fortnight is being hosted by the lovely Sally and the theme is "New" eg. new home, new baby etc.  I have made a new baby card.

Here is what I have used:
Paper/Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Simple Stories Enchanted
Tools: Circle Punches, Craft Knife, Heart Punch
Embellishments: Twine, Chipboard Rocking Horse (think may be a Studio Calico), Kaisercraft Rhinestones

I have popped the layers up on foam dots to give it some dimension and using the craft knife cut the bottom of the bunting out to slip in the paper underneath.  

Thanks for popping by.  Make sure you check out all the great creations, new DT members and a gorgeous new look for the Crafty Cardmakers and More blog here.

Happy creating,
