Cards As Gifts – J

Hi and welcome to my blog

Cards As Gifts – 10th Batch

This batch is larger than my previous batches of half a dozen cards I showed you from this series that I made to give in small packs to friends and family. If you haven’t seen the first post explaining what I’ve been up to then you can see it – here .

You can see previous posts in this series of Cards As Gifts by following these links – 1st Batch; 2nd Batch; 3rd Batch; 4th Batch; 5th Batch; 6th Batch; 7th Batch; 8th Batch; 9th Batch.

10 packs have gone out, one having a few more cards in it.  I should say that they haven’t gone out in packs as per the batches I’ve been showing here – I actually photographed them as I was going along, I then put all the cards in envelopes and separated them out into bundles at random, so I have no idea which cards went to which people – other than the two A4 sized ones which went in the larger batch of eleven cards.

What I Did

Have a look at my previous post – here – if you’ve not already read about what I did to create the cards.

All 10 packs have now been received by the randomly chosen recipients from our Christmas card list.

So that’s the end of these series of posts showing all the cards I made to give away to friends and family.  As I showed at the start of the month I have used items from the collection to decorate the May page of my mother’s calendar, but there are still a lot of elements left from the collection that I haven’t used, so I expect you’ll be seeing more of them used over the next year or so.  In the meantime, I’m working on a few other things that will be appearing on my blog before long.

Baby Crochet And Loom Knitting

Crochetting and Loom Knitting Baby Projects

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before). Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog

Towards the end of last year we were told that my eldest surviving nephew’s girlfriend was expecting their first baby.  So Mam and I decided that we had better get makeing a few things for the baby. Mam obviously isn’t up to makeing much but she reconed she could attempt some baby mittens.  So that left me with a few options.  Mam hasn’t been well enough to make the mittens, but I went ahead and made a few items.

Not knowing what the sex of the baby was going to be I decided on using a varigated yarn with white, yellow and green in it, as that would be suitable for either sex of baby.

The baby has arrived now, and the makes have been sent off to the little family.  It was a baby boy.

I also bought several balls so lots of different things could be made.

Items Used
Crochet Blanket

For the crochet blanket I used 3 balls of the yarn.  I started by makeing a chain of 95 stitches, then a further 3, turned and started crocheting into the 4 stitch.  I kept to a simple pattern of just treble stitches, crocheting into a loop of each chain for the first row and then crocheting into the gap between each stitch on each subsequent row.  The finished blanket came out at 2’7″ by 3′.

This is what the pattern looks like close up.

This is the finished blanket folded up

This is the finished blanket spread out a bit, though part is still folded under.

Mother And Baby Hats

I decided it would be rather sweet to make matching mother and baby hats so I made two different sizes using circular knitting looms.

Just a basic wrap the yarn round each peg of the loom, wrap again, and hook over the bottom stitch.

After knitting several rows, to make around 1.5″ (2″ for adult hat) I took the starting edge and put a loop of each stitch over the pegs and hooked the bottom stitch over to give a thicker edge to the hat.

I then wound round some more yarn and kept going as before, until I had a hat of the desired length.  It was then a case of just kutting off the yarn leaving a length of around 12″ tail, taking a yarn needle and threading on the yarn, and picking up each stitch still on the pegs with the needle before taking it off the peg, drawing in the yarn to gather the knitting together for the top of the hat.

This is what the finished hats look like.

The baby one.

The adult one.

And both together to show the difference in size.

Booties

I looked around the internet for knitting and crocheting patterns for booties and in the end decided on the easiest one I could find.  It was a knitting one, but I decided to do it on a knitting loom as I’m not so good at holding and manipulating knitting needles for any length of time.

The pattern I decided on was to make a T shaped piece and then fold over the sides and sew.  I was experimenting a bit as one pattern I saw had it as two rectangular pieces that were first sewn together into a T and then folded over, but I decided to go with knitting the T to start off with.

As I had different thickness yarn as well as the fact that working on a loom was totally different to using a specific sized knitting needle I first did a piece at an average of the number of stitches of several patterns I’d seen online.

Totally the wrong size – more a doll’s size – perhaps that’s what the patterns I’d been looking at were for, or perhaps it was just a case of finer yarn and the small pegs of the sock knitting loom.

So then it was time to increase the number of stitches and rows.  This produced a bootie that is closer to the size I think of as baby feet size.

Now I realise that you can’t really tell that there is a difference in size.  So here are the two sizes side by side.

So I went ahead and knitted a second one, working in the opposite direction for the cross over piece to make a pair.

As the first one had more or less all been made from yarn within the green band of the verigated colours, I did cut off a bit of yarn before starting the second one so that it would match the first.

And here are the finished pair – they are the same size, though I think I may have pulled the ribbon more on one than the other giving the illusion of slightly different sizes.

.

I have several bits of different crafting on the go at the moment, so keep an eye out for them over the next few weeks.

Welsh New Baby Cards

Cardiau Cymraeg I’r Babi Newydd
Welsh New Baby Cards

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).

My nephew and his partner welcomed a new baby to the family the begining of this month, so that meant that a baby card each from Mam and I were needed.  We also decided to send one, very simple, card between us to my sister and brother-in-law to congratulate them on becoming grandparents.

You can see all 3 cards in this post.

What I Did

I started by takeing the Jiggy digital stamp into MS Publisher and resizing it, makeing a 2nd copy and putting a frame around one copy.  On the same working area I also put a yellow mat with green border, a green paper ribbon with yellow border, and a greeting panel with a green border.  The greeting is “Llongyfarchiadau Ar Enedigaeth Eich Cymro Bach Newydd”, which is Welsh for “Congratulations On The Birth Of Your New Little Welsh Man”.

After printing off the sheet I coloured in the framed image as well as some parts of the 2nd one to use as decoupage layers.  Everything was then cut out.

I scored and folded in half a card before sticking on the pieces, some with fingerlift tape and some with foam tape.  A plain insert with a peeloff greeting was put inside.

For the 3nd card I cropped out one of the little bottle cards, made it bigger and added a greeting “Llongyfarchiadau Ar Enedigaeth Eich Wyr”, which is Welsh for “Congratulations On The Birth Of Your Grandson”.  I then printed the page out.

It was then cut out, scored and folded in half, a little bow from the same sheet was added, together with a few gems.

I made the insert by folding a sheet of paper in half, putting it inside the card and drawing around it.  I then cut it out around 3mm inside the drawn line, makeing sure not to cut along the fold line.  This was then stuck inside.  A peel-off greeting was added inside.

For the 3rd card I took the printable download of the baby on pastel shawl and re-sized it to what I wanted before printing it off.  I also printed out the corresponding insert onto paper.

I cut out the topper and trimmed the insert.  The topper was matted onto dark blue cardstock and trimmed, and this was stuck to a light blue cardstock and trimmed.  I also made a panel for the greeting from the same two blue cardstocks.

The base card was made by scoreing a sheet of the Super Smooth Cardstock and folding in half.  I used foam tape to stick on the matted and layered topper, and also the greetings panel.  Peeloff greetings were added to the front and the insert which was stuck inside.  I finished off with a few motiffs from the peeloff sheet.

Another Simple Welsh Birthday Card

Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog

Another Welsh Birthday Card

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).

A few posts ago – here – I told you I’d won one of Pete Simpson’s Giveaways on FB.  This is the 2nd card I’ve made using bits from within the boxful I got.  I used the purple and yellow spray inks again, and this time also used blue and green paints from the giveaway as well, together with one of Pete’s own stencils and one of his texture stamps.

What I Did

I started by setting out a panel on my computer that included a rounded corner rectangle and an oval – nearly circular but not quite.  These were given a wide deep yellow outline.  I put in the oval my chosen greeting in purple (Penblwydd Hapus Iawn – which is Welsh for a Very Happy Birthday).  I also put a second oval of exactly the same size on the other side of the working area before printing them out.

After printing I cut out the rectangular panel and the stand alone oval.

I sprayed stencil adhesive behind the spirelli mask and the oval.  The oval was put over the oval on the panel and then the spirelli mask was put on top.  I sprayed a bit of yellow ink onto my working area and then used a makeup brush to put it through the mask.  I extended the yellow area all over the panel, but makeing it uneven, even going as far as spraying a bit directly onto the background for some deeper areas.

I then removed the mask and put the panel on my stamping platform onto which I attached the texture stamp.  I inked the stamp up by spraying purple ink onto my working area and using a makeup brush to put the ink onto the stamp.  After the first stamping I moved the panel and stamped a few more times.

I then removed the oval.

I used my scoreboard to score a sheet of cardstock and after folding it attached the panel I’d created to the front.  I then used a die-cutting machine to cut out some flower and foliage embelishments.  The foliate was coloured green with paint and I used my finger to put a dot of blue paint in the centre of each flower.  I shaped the flowers a bit by hand and then used the makeup brush to gently brush a bit of the purple ink – very lightly – over the pettles, not trying for an even coverage or anything like that.

I finished by sticking the foliage and flowers onto the card front.

What I Used
  • Several A4 sheets of 350gsm Super Smooth White Cardstock
  • Purple and Yellow Spray Inks
  • Artisan Designs UK – Spirelli Mask
  • Artisan Designs UK – Texture Collection1 – Speckle
  • Green and Blue Cosmic Shimmer Paints
  • Sizix Thinlets – Flower dies and Foliage dies
  • Bookbinding Glue
  • Makeup Brushes
  • Stencil Spray Adhesive
  • Stamping Platform
  • Score Board
  • Scissors
  • Fingerlift Tape
  • Die Cutting Machine
The Finished Makes

Cards As Gifts – 9th Batch

As I said in my 1st post of these series – here – I can’t do anything much to help anybody during this COVID-19 pandemic, but I did decide to help out a few friends and family members by makeing some cards and sending some a small pack of cards so that they had something in the house to send to people while they could not go out to shop for cards or go and visit people in person to give them birthday good wishes.

I also explained why I chose the theme I did for the cards I’m gifting.

Giveaway Winning And Some Crafting

Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog

Giveaway Winning and Crafting

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).

Giveaway

Pete Simpson of Artisan Design UK has been doing daily Giveaways on his page, as well as Facebook Live demonstrations, more or less continuously since the lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic started.  He has only had a very few days off in all these weeks.

While he has been giving away some Artisan Design items, and doing a clearout of some of his own unused stash, many others have generously donated to his giveaways.  All very generous people who have done a little bit to give to the crafting community.

One week I won the Saturday Weekend Wow! giveaway.  These giveaways have been a little larger than the giveaways of other days.

This is what I got.

Opened box.

Spread out a little bit.

Thank you very much Pete for running the giveaways, and a thank you to all the others who have donated items to be included in the giveaways.

Crafting

Having won so many varied items in Pete‘s Weekend Wow Giveaway I just had to have a play and see what I could come up with.  So many ideas, but I had to choose what to start off with.

What I Did

For my first make I used 2 spray inks, two glitter frames, and two stamps from the giveaway.  Having scored and folded in half one A4 sheet of cardstock I used a makeup brush to apply purple ink to one of the stamps, putting it onto a stamping platform and stamping around the outside of the card I’d made, moving the stamp or the card before each stamp to give a pattern around.  I then used another makeup brush to add some yellow around the outside edge of the card.

Makeup brushes were again used to apply yellow to a sheet of cardstock, in various depths of colour, spraying a few splats on for texture after finishing.  Another piece of cardstock had purple ink added with a makeup brush to give a very deep colour.

A panel was cut from the yellow cardstock darkest area, and a slightly larger mat to go behind it was cut from the purple.  I then stuck the two gliter frames onto lighter areas of the cardstock coloured in yellow, as well as stamping a butterfly onto a darker area using the purple ink, again using a makeup brush to apply.  The circular framed panels and the butterfly were then cut out to the edge with scissors.

The butterfly was shaped and glue attached only to the body to stick it to the largest circle.

I then used a die cutting machine to cut flowers and foliage from the same cardstock I’d used for everything else on this card, shaping with my fingers and shading centres and pettal edges with the same two colours of ink.

Fingerlift tape, foam tape, and bookbinding glue were used to attach everything together.

I finished off by adding a “Penblwydd Hapus” peeloff greeting and using a fineliner pen to add a bit of a shaddow around lower right side of lettering.

What I Used
The Finished Makes

Cards As Gifts – F

Hi and welcome to my blog
(or welcome back if you’ve visited before).
Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog

Cards As Gifts – 6th Batch

As I said in my 1st post of these series – here – I can’t do anything much to help anybody during this COVID-19 pandemic, but I did decide to help out a few friends and family members by makeing some cards and sending random ones, chosen from my Christmas card list, a small pack of cards so that they had something in the house to send to people while they could not go out to shop for cards or go and visit people in person to give them birthday good wishes.

I also explained why I chose the theme I did for the cards I’m gifting.

What I Did

Have a look at my previous post – here – if you’ve not already read about what I did to create the cards.

Finished Piece

These are not in batches as they were sent out, just as they were made and photographed.

I know that by now some of the packets of cards have arrived with those that have been chosen to receive them.
