Birthday Card

 Hi there, This is another commissioned card, for a friend's husband and I made an A5 card with white cardstock that I edged with Distress Ink "Vintage Photo" this is one of my favourite colours, and I used the "Weathered Clock" die, cut in black card stock, I also added "The Watch Man" that I stamped out and coloured with Faber-Castille Aquarelle pencils, and printed the question on my computer and used a Spellbinders cutting die "Hexagons" to cut it out and edged it with the "Vintage Photo", on the inside I used kitchen paper to mask the areas that I did not want to print on, using the Graphic 45 Hampton Art stamp, I don't know what this stamp set it called but used the stamp with the writing on it, I put a little brown spider hanging from one of the corners, this was from the Halloween Stamp Set also from Hampton Art, and the gears were in the same set, again using the "Vintage Photo", the numbers were cut with a QuicKutz cutting die No.48 Number Set, which I have had for ages, the arrows, I am not sure of the maker because the die cuts were a gift
from a friend, and the "Happy Birthday" was cut from
a free die that came with "Australian"Simply Cards" magazine, They are a great magazine, with free
gifts with every issue.   I hope the recepient will like this card and get a laugh out of it.
at the bottom right hand side I put a die cut
from Graphic 45 "Congratulations on your
Special Day" and on the envelope I put the
off cut from the Graphic 45 paper, which was
from "The Olde Curiousity Shop" and used on the front of the card  and stamped vintage car images from Tim Holtz stamp set
"Life's Possibilities".

Place Cards

These Place Cards were made as a commission, I cut the card stock at 4" x 4" and used blue Parker ink to write the names and used Tim Holtz movers and shapers die "Mini Pine Tree & Holly Set" and used red card stock and punched the little berries, and used a Stabilo number 88 mini pen in dark green to make the faux stitching around the edges and found a box in my stash to add Christmas Paper and a Marianne's Creatables die "Pointsettia" to make a flower for the top and I put a pale green stick on pearl in the centre, the stick on pearl was bought from a cheap shop, the box was the correct size for the cards, and the buyer was very happy with them.

Christmas Card in a Box

Hi there everyone, Here is a Card in a Box that I made with measurements at Split Coast Stampers, which I have used quite a few times, this time it is a Christmas theme with most of the cutting dies from Marianne's Creatables and I also used a dove, Sizzex "Bird #5"   this is a cute little dove, I also used a santa stamp, metal snowflake from China, little stars from a generic punch from Glitter Card bought at the Newsagents, and the Merry Christmas is also a Marianne creatable die cut from Silver card, also from the newsagent a small reindeer, which was a gift from a friend.  I am entering this in to Craft Room Challenge #89, Anything 3D"

Gift Card/Money holders

 Hi Everybody, Here are some Gift Card/Money Holders I made for a commission, the box is the right size to hold 10 of these, I had to make four for men, and six for women, so I made all the ladies cards in white cardstock, and all of them are different  using different cutting dies, paper, embossing folders and Ranger Ink Pads that I have, I haven't added all the photos in this post because I could only have three photo's so will add the others later, hope you all like them, Jasann

Gift Card holders

Hi there everyone, here are some gift card holders/envelopes I made this morning, together with the tag, I cut the card 8-1/2" x 5-1/2, and scored one end at 2" and the other at 2-1/2" and folded the 2-1/2" end over and secured with double sided tape and then attached Christmas designer paper from a pad that I received with a magazine a couple of years ago, I made a belly band and attached reindeers from Reindeer Flight Tim Holtz Bigz cutting die and on the other I made a little Christmas card cut with the Spellbinders banner die the second smallest one, and for the tag I cut these out of the spare card that was left over from the envelopes and used a silver gel pen to draw the faux stitching and cut silver and light green glitter card snowflakes Sizzex number 17,  I am happy how these turned out and the boys should like them.

When Life get's you down

Hi everyone, here is todays card which I made for a couple of friends, who are doing it hard at the moment, and thought this one would cheer them up!    I used ordinary white card stock for the base with copy paper watercoloured and dabbed with white ink pad, VersaMagic, and highlighted with a white gel pen, The sentiment I found on the net and cannot remember just where, if it is you, Thank You!   I used the seahorse from Tim Holtz Bigz cutting die "Sand and Sea" and coloured it with Tim's mini ink pads and used a soft headed marker for the highlights and the white gel pen for the markings, I hand cut the seaweed! Hope my friends like this card and that it does cheer them up!!!
