Welcome to my blog, which one day, hopefully, should be filled with wonderful handmade card ideas! My goal is to create a blog with ideas for some easy, 'make-able' cards for you to take inspiration from! (It's what I've always needed to help me!)

Josh's 18th Birthday

Here's my second post for today...
And it's going into Di's Snippet Challenge, because I managed to use some papers that I could never seem to find a way to use up :)
I've always had trouble finding ideas for males, and I have to say that my Mum came up with the idea for this one!
So my cousin, Josh, is very into his music, and is a very good music journalist, and I thought I should make a special card for his 18th this weekend! And I also managed to use up some of my plain bits of paper, and quite a bit of gold string!
The card was plain white - 26 x 10cm - And I did a guitar shaped 8 and a guitar neck shaped 1. the 8 was just plain blue, thick paper and the 1 was plain red. I stuck black pieces of card under the holes in the guitar body.I cut the head out of plain brown paper too. I used 6 gold strings and stuck small pieces of card over the top of the ends to neaten it up a little.

Mum's Birthday 2012

Grr.. I've done it again, and not posted in over a month! I apologise, and therefore I am going to post twice today!
My first card is one that I did a little while ago, for my Mum's Birthday.
I used a plain white 7 x 14 cm card for this one. I found two pieces of 6.5 x 6.5 acetate and sponged orange and pink watercolour paints in the flower shape on to them. I stuck the middle of the orange one straight on to the card, then stuck the pink one on top with a foam pad. I then found a 'pearl' cabochon and stuck that on top. I used watercolours to paint the stem and leaves.
It was quite a simple card really, but my mum loved it :) I found he acetate just lying around, and my G'ma had the Cabochon, so it was easy to find the 'ingredients' too :)
