2 birthday cards

just finished these 2 cards for my 2nd and youngest daughter's birthdays, the calendar below is for my youngest and am doing one for Angela soon.

this is for Kate, she is into peaches and pale greens

die cut loads of flowers

then put the verse on the back

this one below is for Angela, she really loves greens

the happy birthday is die cut from mirri card

I love making flowers

then the verse is on the back again


I have been looking for ages for some of these perpetual calendars, 'cos my daughters all like them, so having found some this is for my youngest 's birthday

have never done the old decopatch thing, so had a try with this

I thought the papers were good for the kitchen diner Kate has, as there are cockerills, chickens, ducks, lambs and spring flowers , am pleased with the result.

a few birdhouses

found these little houses in a sale 4 for £1 so had to get some and play.

pretty in pink

change of colour scheme

thought these papers were nice

these were from a paper pad I had given

also used some butterflies I have had ages, 'cos didn't really like the colours - look ok here though

another in pinks.

oak house autumn challenge

the challenge at Oak House Studios is "autumn"

so I have been playing about with inks and stamps, because I love the autumn colours

I sprayed the lemon, orange and lime inks onto my paper, and then sprayed a light mist of gold over the top.

Then I stamped the oak tree  [just the top edge] around the outer edge, then stamped 3 mountain ash leaves, 2 in orange and 1 in mustard and masked them off before stamping the different leaves in chocolate brown.

I coloured the leaves in brown, orange and mustard, then stamped a butterfly from the trio set in brown and coloured with spectrum noire pens, then cut out and placed fluttering over the leaves.

the sentiment was then stamped in chocolate in the top right corner. I apologise it is not quite straight.
