GREAT GRANDDAUGHTER'S SLIDE UP CARD

 

Hi and welcome to all my very talented and craft loving friends.

 

I do hope everyone is keeping safe and well in these uncertain times.

Yay I will see my Daughter for the first time in 2 weeks as she had a case of Covid where she works and didn't want to come round just in case.

Thankfully all her tests came back negative but she still didn't want to chance it.

She still had to work though as she is a Manager in a home for Adults with learning difficulties.

Hence she was being tested weekly and she has to wear all the gear needed to be safe.

 

Earlier this year I was tempted as you do to buy this die from Tonic as I thought it would make a great card for my Great Granddaughter Ellie.

 


This  is how it opens up

    
Then finally like this.







Sorry about the first photo I just couldn't get the colour right the colours are more like the second and third photos.

Ellie was going through a faze of loving Sloths.

So I bought this card stock from C&C in their summer sale and it was designed by Carly Duff.

The photo in the second slide up part was the only recent photo I could find, and it was from a day out when it was very windy.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY

Anna Marie paper sprayed with gold mica spray.

Poinsettias and foilage are Tattered Lace Dies.

The second card is a Hunkydory Image.

I found the Carol music on the web and the paper I used was copied from the back of a package of some food which I cannot remember what, but isn't it so pretty I could not throw it away.

For my floral bouquet I rolled up some snippets of red card to make 3 cylinders and tied them together with a ribbon then added ivy leaves, berries, and some small flowers.

Finished it all off with snow paste around the deges and glitter to the image.

FAMILY OF PENGUINS

 

Hi and welcome to all my very talented and craft loving friends.

 

Something a little different today.

Last year I made snowmen if you remember for a Christmas Bazzar we were having where I live I also made penguins too, but never posted them so here they are.

 

I say they are a family because they all came out different sizes and they look like Daddy, Mummy, and Child.

If you would like to know how to make them there are plenty of U TUBE videos.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

ANOTHER NAPKIN TECHNIQUE CHRISTMAS CARD

 

Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

 

I have another Christmas card made with the napkin technique.

I fell in love with design napkin as soon as I saw it and had to make a card with it.

Was quite pleased with how it turned out.

 



This is a 8"x8" size tent style card I made out of A4 card stock.

The Gunmetal shade of card was black on the reverse side so I glued two pieces together so I could have the same shade inside the card.

The napkin is a Anna Marie one.

I decided to put the image in an aperture and added some pearl stings around the edge, and some glitter to the image.

Then I added a couple of bows and some white and yellow flowers and foilage for my arrangement.

 

Thank you so much for you visit and precious time.

25th ANNIVERSARY ALBUM AND BOX

 

Hi and welcome to all my very talented and craft loving friends.

 

My youngest Son and his wife celebrated their 25th Wedding Anniversary in September, and this is what I made them.

 

   









This Album is 7"x7" in size and a box I made to fit it.

I made lot of mistakes on this Album, so hence the ribbon spine and the lace die cuts at the back of the Album.

I used lots of different dies on the making of this they include Tattered Lace, Tonic, Sue Wilson,

and an old flower die which I can't remember the make of.

I just wish I hadn't penned the doodling around the picture mounts.

A lesson learnt for next time.

I punched a circle out of yellow card and cut it in half for my sun.

MALE BIRTHDAY CARD


Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend and you are all keeping well.

I made this for my my stepdaughter's husband who has his own building business.



This is a 8"x8" size card I made from 2 A4 sheets of craft card as I had some craft envelopes to use up..
The work tools images are Hunkydory from one of their books of images.
They are made from quite thin paper so I glued then to card and edged them with a brown promarker.
All in all a quick card to make only one die cut involved the Happy Birthday.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.
