Mini Book & Box

I have been to Signature Craft Studio again today for a class with Kathy and made this gorgeous little mini book with a presentation box. The little flower on top of the box was stamped onto different colour backing papers then cut out, shaped to give dimension and then fastened to the top of the box with 3D foam pads. The flowers and leaves then covered with glossy accents to give a lovely finish. Of course, a little bit of glitter glue had to be added for that bit of extra bling!!

The mini book was created with the basic materials available in kit form (pack of 3 by Magenta I think). The outer cover was made using the same backing papers used for the flowers on the box lid and a stamp, also by Magenta for this purpose, then watercoloured with a length of ribbon being hidden by the cover to finish off perfectly.

Thanks Kathy for a great class, as always :-)

40th Birthday

The two cards were for a great friend of mine for her 40th birthday. The top card was stamped with a stamp from an unmounted set but am not sure who it's by, and coloured with Promarkers. The backing papers are from Craftwork Cards with the lettering cut out with my new Cricut - woohoo!!.

The second card is with a fab Penny Black stamp, again coloured with Promarkers (need the practice ...) and backing papers from DCWV. The lettering is again from the Cricut.

Father's Day

I know this post is a bit late but that's because I gave this card to my dad to take on holiday with him for Father's Day and forgot to take a photo of it!!

The lettering was printed on the computer, coloured with Promarkers and 3d'd (?) onto the card with pinflair glue with the mini tool kit from my stash. Simples .....
