Boys in stitches!

Our challenge this month at Scrap the Boys card challenge is all about

For my card I used:
Image - Saturated Canary
Papers - Stampin' Up!
Medium - promarkers
Embellishments - faux stitching using white gel pen and navy pen

I made this for my nephew from his Grandmother.
He has a beard so I was really glad to find I had purchased this image
a long time ago and it worked perfectly though not sure I did the colouring justice!

I hope you get time to enter our challenge this month, which you can find

Have a heart!

Today I am using this lovely die called

to make a 1st anniversary tag for my son and his wife!
I can't believe it's a year already!

So I started cutting the heart out in cardboard (fairly thick) and cut myself
four layers so I could build the thickness.
The die managed beautifully and I was able to keep the rose pieces in place.

I then cut myself a piece of ribbon and coloured it with my stampin' write pen
to match the paper I was going to use.

I joined two of the hearts using a strong wet glue.

Then I adhered the ribbon using double sided sticky tape.

I then sandwiched the ribbon with the other two cardboard cuts
leaving the ribbon nicely hidden in centre.

I then added glue to the rose parts and sprinkled some gold glitter on top.
I then cut the rose heart again in black card
and adhered this over the top of the glittered cardboard.
Be sure and add glue round the edges well and round the rose parts.

I used the die itself to trace the shape on my designer paper and cut out with scissors.
Then stuck to back of my heart.
I cut another heart in my dsp, using the spotty side this time.
I stamped the details and date.

This was stuck over the top of the black base, giving a
black layered of detail between glitter and top paper.

I was very happy with the finished heart tag which I am giving
to my son and daughter-in-law for their 1st Wedding Anniversary next week.

For my project today I have used

Gold glitter

Here comes Summer!

Today, with this lovely warm weather over here in Ireland, I made a seaside card!

I used the very useful 
and the very useful
Stamps are from Whiff of Joy
Medium - promarkers
Papers - Stampin Up black and white paper and card
Background papers are from an old marbled set of papers
that come in 5 pastel shades. I knew it would be useful one day!

So to make my card I cut the Seashell Corner die out twice and cut away the shells to
use as embellishments on my card.

Next I used the Dotted Nesting Squares, two different sizes to cut out one striped square
and one red and one blue of the larger square.

I prepared my card base by tearing some yellow paper and matting onto some
marbled paper for the sky and sand.

Next I assembled my beach huts by cutting the striped square into triangles
for the roof and cutting a rectangle of white for the doors.
I drew the circles and added faux stitching.

I adhered the huts to my card and added the shells around them.
I stamped some beach images, coloured them up and 3d them onto the card.

I even used some tiny little off cuts from the Seashell die to pop over the top of the doors.
There was very little waste from the die cuts.
I hope you like my finished project.

Summer party

Today I got myself into the summer party flow making some cute matching
windmills to pop into lemonade, cupcakes, sweetie jars and a little table seating card.

I used the gorgeous

from Tutti Designs

I used one sheet of 6 x 6 inch double sided paper and cut
the square sizes you can see in photo.

I folded the paper from point to point, as shown, and burnished the folds.

I then cut up each fold just about a centimeter short of the centre point.

I added some tape runner and proceeded to bring one point of each cut up to centre.
They are held together with a silver square brad which attached them to the straws.
The little table seating card is 2" x 2.5", folded in half.
Stamp your sentiment and secure the smallest windmill to the side using the brad.

Easy and quick and you know your squares will be perfect using these great dies.

For my project I have used

As I got carried away making these I decided to do a card for the birthday girl too.

Items used:
LOTV image
coloured with promarkers
Papers from Tutti Frutti DSP
Metal Brads for centres of windmills
