Stacks of presents!

Recently, I have found myself making a lot of baby cards...

...and have found myself running out of baby cards in my card box.
So this afternoon, I have made this little selection...
All using the nitwits bears, my own home-made little labels 
(some left blank so I can add on a name, if needed),
and of course, some baby type papers, 
along with some punched borders I bought at the boot sale.

..One in pink.. 

 ...One in blue....

... and one in yellow!

Just one today....

I made this recently for someone whose birthday was a couple of days ago...

...and I know she love poppies...
So, I thought this trinitage image was be very useful! 
I decoupaged it and added a bit of glossy accents and some
 black gems into the centre of each poppy.

Male cards inc Fathers day

I've had a busy week, and have been making some much needed male cards...

 I was wrapping a friends birthday pressie the other day and had some left over wrapping paper.
I thought it would be spot on for a simple card I had in mind,
using the kraft cards I bought at Samuel Taylors in Leeds this week. 
Buttons from stash, Digi sentiment, and wrapping paper!

 This is a lovely Trinitage image that I bought a while ago. I made it for Hubbys Dad 
as he likes this type of little picturesque fishing villages.
I decoupaged some of the scene.

 This is an image I love, from S.J.Musings   and I have used it a number 
of times for different cards.
I decoupaged it and popped on two cats....  
as they look very similar to the two cats my Mum and Dad have.

I found the website that lets you print off your own keep calm poster.
So I made this one and then embossed lines as though they were a continuation 
of the union jack.

Just poppin by... show you one I made recently for a chocoholic friend.

I used loads of digi images to make this card....and made some images
twice so I could decoupage them.
Jayne likes anything and everything chocolate...
so that's what she got! 
I used purple paper behind the image to give a "Cadbury's" impression. 
Also, my fab Hubby managed to find and download the "Willy Wonka" font!!

Newspaper card

I was inspired to make some "newspaper cards" from Its all Fiddle Fart
and this is my second one. 
I have made more that I will show soon.

I made it a couple of weeks ago, for a colleague who was due to go on maternity last friday...
but she went and had her baby the week before!
So, I haven't seen her yet and she still hasn't seen this card! 
Hahahaha... nevermind,...I will give it to her as soon as I see her. 
Fingers crossed she likes it... I thought a maternity card was just a cute idea! 
(she was supossed to be having a baby shower later this week... bit late now!:)  )

More baby cards

I've made another 2 cards for the new baby...

 I used a Nitwits baby collection for this card...
I generated the wording directly onto the card and added the frame,
a teddy and star (decoupaged) with some glossy accents here and there. 
Finished off with some simple embossing around the frame.

I thought this paper was perfect for a baby girl card...
I had used this poem once before and I think it is lovely, so used it again.
The bear is another from the Nitwits collection. 
I bought the martha stewart punched borders on a bootsale last weekend, and of course,
I made use of the fanciful flourish!

Thanks for any comments....

I'm back!!

I've been ill recently, and then really really busy, 
but I have been making a few cards for a friends new baby girl!

This card was a commission...
"Can I have the babys name, weight , d.o.b, time , and name meaning?"
Hmmm.... Took a bit of thinking, but I gave her this today...
 and she loved it!!!

(Will show more cards I made for this baby, soon!)
