Happy birthday Mum

Made these 2 cards mums. I have been playing with fonts and printing off my own sentiments. Stamped the card background with with brilliance pearlescent ink pads and used my nesties.Gold one stacked and pink one as a frame.Flowers are a mixture of prima, magnolia and wild orchid crafts. Simple but effective.Finished off with a few pearl stones.

Nephew card

Made this for my 10 year old nephew for later this month. I cut the number 10 out using my xmas pressie - pink slice. I really like it but would not part with big shot, both good for different things.Alway difficult to find images for boys this was a super bargain sale stamp only cost £2.

Retirement Card

Hi not been on here for a while.Hadn't realised how long. I have been busy crafting though. A colleague is retiring after 28 years!!. I wanted to do something different to my usual magnolia copic colouring as she has seen a few of those so decided to have a go with my craftwork cards owl stamps. I have used the doily punch to edge the blue vellum and the flowers are from wild orchard craft.I have coloured the stamps with my sakura glitter pens.
