Cardmaking

Oh Baby….. I dare you!

Hi crafty people! Well it’s Friday and that can only mean one thing…. a new Daring Cardmakers Challenge! This week Ruth is daring us to make a card for a baby. She says “my challenge falls in between both my boy’s birthdays and they will be 17 and 15 this year (where does time go?!)  Could be a new baby card, or a card for your ‘baby'”

I decided to use the Baby theme die set from First Edition craft which has lots of cute elements. I opted for a gender neutral colour scheme so pulled out the Nuvo glitter drops in Yellow Bird.

Slimline cards seem to be all the rage at the moment so I used some grey and yellow card as well as some polka dots paper to create this card. The sentiment is from the Bundle of Joy set fromAltenew.

Hop on over to the Daring Cardmakers Challenge blog to see some fabulous inspiration from my fellow design team members and share your own cards too.

Thanks for stopping by, I’d love it if you said hello in the comments!

Celebrate!

Hi crafty people! How’s your week going?  We’ve got a very wet day here which the garden is loving although I wasn’t when walking back from the dropping the car off at the garage for a service!

It’s perfect crafting weather though, so I’m busy with an order of 50 cards to get sent off to Australia but I also wanted to share my entry for the Cardz 4 Galz challenge #100 .  To mark the 100th challenge the theme is “celebrate”.  I’m a little ashamed to say that I’ve had this die in my stash for at least a couple of years and it was still in the packaging, unused!  So I decided now was the time to give it a go.

The celebrate die is from Tattered Lace and it’s called Monumental Celebrate.  The balloons, party hat and crown are from the Party Dies set from First Edition Craft.

I’m going to need to make an envelope I think for this one as I don’t have one in my stash but I liked how it came out.  If you like your cards to really stand out on the shelf in among all the others I think this die is perfect!

Thanks so much for visiting the blog and I hope to see you again soon.  I also sell a selection of cards on my Etsy Shop, the Ginger Ninja Crafts Shop if you are looking for a card to send to someone special.
