Punches and dies

A couple of cards made to send to New Zealand, I have used a punch and dies on them all so have entered them into the Craft Place challenge.

Wall plaque

My sister and her husband have recently retired, so in order to mark the occasion I have made them a plaque.  I am sure they will find the saying funny.  Made using an MDF plaque which I painted with gesso, them stamped with an Indigo Blue crackle stamp, then stamped the corners with a La Pashe foam stamp.   Warning is made using multiple cuts of the word on my cricut, the rest I did on my computer, then crackled the card.  Overall I am very pleased with the result.

New Home card

This is a card for my sister who has just moved home, (I don't think she looks in here, if she does sorry Lucy, if you see it before we are up next weekend).  I saw this digi stamp on a friends card, she had coloured it in, when I printed it out I just thought the detail was so good I didn't want to colour it in, so went for the monochrome look, which I really like.  Again, the spellbinders were used as was the Tim Holtz tags and rosettes.

Baby girl card

I have been playing with my new Marianne Creatable dies, the pram and the pages are both new.  Also love this new spellbinder die for the mats.  I don't always find it easy to make baby cards, but enjoyed doing this one for a friend.  If I was doing it again I would use silver rather than black ink on the stamps, but we all learn something for the next time.

This is today's make.  I am going to try and make at least one thing every day I am in my craft room.  I seem to spend a lot of time just looking at stuff, and if I made something as often as I tidy out my craft room I would be awash with makes.

This was made cutting multi cuts with my cricut, (love craft room, somuch better than my gypsy).  I have covered a MDF plaque with a wood effect paper, glued a spellbinder wheat die, and hot glued the bike onto the plaque, hoping this will be strong enough to hold.  It is for my sister, I hope she likes it.

60th birthday card for a dear friend

I had a vision of what I wanted this card to look like, it is almost there.  Made using spellbinder dies, cheery lynne and crafts too dies and my cricut.  The lattice was bought already cut, have to say it is a bit wider than I would have liked, but no way was I cutting this by hand.  The card itself is made using grand spellbinder dies and of course my trusty friend the ebosser.
