Two More Simple Birthday Cards

2 More Simple Welsh Birthday Cards

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before). Thank you vor coming to have a look at this post on my blog.

Life

Well … I’m still on antibiotics for an infection in my damaged leg.  It still didn’t clear completely on with the second two weeks of antibiotics – so now I am on week five. It looks better than it did, but still isn’t right.  So a long way to go yet and I’m resting as much as possible.

Thank heavens that we have help from the carers at Care Wales/Gofal Cymru, not only twice daily with help for my mother, but also help for me with showering and doing my hair.

Crafting

I’ve said in a previous post about several family members having their birthdays in February, so needing to make several cards that would be suitable for them.  I’ve shown you two previously – here – and today I have two more to show you.

These were from both my mother and myself for another nephew.  So again, nothing flowery or fussy needed.  As well as modern things like computers and 3D printing, he likes vintage things, his dog and his horse, and other countryside things.  So we’ve gone wildlife and vintage for his cards this year.

What I Did

I started by selecting two different Hunkydory books that had images that I thought were most suitable and had Mam go through to take her pick.  She chose an owl image from one book, so I chose a vintage horse image from another.

For the owl card I simply scored a sheet of cardstock in half to make an A5 sized base card.  I then matted and layered the image onto light grey and black cardstock before sticking it to the front of the card, adding a thin paper ribbon of black cardstock down one side of the image for a little bit of different interest.

I finished the card by putting a peeloff greeting in a wave shape on the front, as well as putting in a folded sheet of white paper as an insert and adding a black greeting.

The vintage horse topper was a square shape, so I scored on sheet of mid grey cardstock at 8″ and folding it over, and I cut the other sheet of the same colour at 8″ and attached it to the fold over of the other to make an 8″ card.

I again matted and layered my topper before attaching it to the centre front of the base card I’d created.

As I thought that my nephew might like to put the image up in his bedroom after his birthday I didn’t put a greeting on the front as I thought it looked nice just framed with the matting and layering.

I did fold a sheet of paper at just under 8″, trimmed a little off the long edge, and stuck it inside the back of the card as an insert.  I added a peeloff greeting to this.

What I Used
  • 1 x Adorable Scoreable Cardstock
  • A4 Sheets of light grey, 2 mid grey, and black cardstock
  • Fingerlift Tape
  • 2 Sheets A4 100gsm Paper
  • 2 topper sheets from 2 different Hunkydory books
  • Scoreboard
  • Paper Cutter
  • Peeloff Greetings
Two Finished Cards

2 Simple Birthday Cards

2 Simple Welsh Birthday Cards

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before). Thank you vor coming to have a look at this post on my blog.

Life

In my post on the 30th of Hanuary I told you that I’d had another infection in my damaged leg and had to start my emergency antibiotics.  Well it turned out to be two infections.

By the time I’d taken 10 days of my 14 days of emergency antibiotics my leg was practically back to normal, and days 11, 12, and morning of day 13 it was cool, no red, and felt fine, though I still kept takeing the antibiotics of course.

Unfortunately, the afternoon of day 13 I woke from my afternoon rest to find my leg back a brighter shade of red and temperature back up again.  So as soon as I finished the antibiotics I had to have the dotor out.  By this time I had pain in my sinuses on the right side and whooshing in my ear as well.

The doctor said that a leg infection like I’d got could be caused by more than one bacteria (well I already knew that), and he reconed that the antibiotics I’d taken worked well on one type I had, but that the second type I had wasn’t killed by the same antibiotics and had therefore grown like mad as soon as the emergency antibiotics had killed off the first type of bacteria.

So another prescription for a fortnight of another type of antibiotics.  After a week my leg looks its normal, miss-shaped, colour, and not hot, but sinuses still not cleared, but I’m carying on with second antibiotics and hope they work before they finish. Just praying that the cause of the sinus problem is not another bacteria that isn’t killed off by either antibiotics I’ve been given.

So lots more rest, but I have fitted in a little crafting, even if it’s taking me days to do a simple project.

Crafting

3 of my nephews have their birthdays in February. That, of course, means that I need to make birthday cards to give them – one from my mother and one from myself to each of them.

And being farm boys they wouldn’t appreciate fancy or flowery, so I’ve gone for animals as topper images, and kept the cards quite flat.

Today’s post is showing the two cards given to the one who had his birthday first this month.

What I Did

I took two sheets of cardstock, scored and folded them in half.

I then took another sheet of cardstock and stuck my chosen elephant topper sheet onto it before cutting it to leave a border.  This was stuck to the front of my prepared card base.  I cut a strip of the same cardstock I’d used as a mat behind the topper and stuck this down the front of the card as well.

I folded and trimmed paper and stuck it inside the card before adding a greeting “Penblwydd Hapus” (which is Welsh for “Happy Birthday”) on the outside and inside of the card.

For the second card I used a sheet from a square Hunkydory pack and trimmed both sides off to make a rectangular topper.  The sheet had a patterned background on the other side so I cut the bits I’d trimmed off to make little paper ribbon embelishements for the card front.

I again matted the image onto a piece of cardstock before I stuck the pieces onto the card front and added insert and greetings.

What I Used
  • Adorable Scoreable Cardstock – 3 colours
  • Fingerlift Tape
  • 2 Sheets A4 100gsm Paper
  • 2 topper sheets from 2 different Hunkydory books
  • Scoreboard
  • Paper Cutter
  • Peeloff Greetings.

14th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019

14th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019 – Welsh Cards

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

This is the second half of the batch of cards I made as square ones on a chrisp, white, base card – although, as I said in my previous post – here – the photos are not showing up as crisp a white as they are in reality. I’ve made them very Clean And Simple, with very little additions to the topper, although I have put the toppers on with foam tape for a little bit of dimension.

What I Used
  • Items from Hunkydory Christmas Collection from this year
  • 6″ square cards with envelopes
  • 2mm and 3mm Shaker Foam Tape
  • Roller Glue Tape
  • Pinflair Bookbinding Glue
  • Black and Gold “Nadolig Llawen” Peeloffs
  • Glitter “Nadolig Llawen”
  • A4 White Paper – for printing out inserts
  • Paper Trimmer
What I did

You can have a look at what I did in my last post if you missed seeing that a couple of days ago.  You can find it – here.

Batch Of Cards

The insert in each card was a simple one like this.

.

That’s just about it for Christmas makes for this year.  But never fear, I have much more crafting on the go so it won’t be long before I’m back with more things to show you.

13th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019

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

13th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019 – Welsh Cards

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

Today’s batch of cards (and the next one) are square ones made on a chrisp, white, base card – although the colour in the photos is not showing up as crisp a white as they are in reality.  I’ve made them very Clean And Simple, with very little additions to the topper, although I have put the toppers on with foam tape for a little bit of dimension.

What I Used
  • Items from Hunkydory Christmas Collection from this year
  • 6″ square cards with envelopes
  • 2mm and 3mm Shaker Foam Tape
  • Roller Glue Tape
  • Pinflair Bookbinding Glue
  • Black and Gold “Nadolig Llawen” Peeloffs
  • Glitter “Nadolig Llawen”
  • A4 White Paper – for printing out inserts
  • Paper Trimmer
What I did

The cards were already scored, so it was simply a case of folding them before starting.  I chose toppers from the collection of a size that left a lot of white space on the card front, keeping the framing element if there was one with the topper.

Each topper was stuck down using 2 or 3 mm deep foam tape while the framing element was stuck directly to the card front using either the roller glue tape pen or bookbinding glue.

I added a greeting to most to finish off the front.

For the inserts I printed off a greeting and my mother and my names (I know – cheating a bit to save having to write inside each one as I’m running out of Christmas steam by now).

The inserts were trimmed to size, folded, and stuck in using the roller glue.

Batch Of Cards

The insert in each card was a simple one like this.

The central topper on each card is raised up slightly on foam tape.

.

I’m coming to the end of my Christmas makes for this year, but still have some items to blog about.  Then it will be on to the new year and more crafting.

A Christmas Carol Challenge

A Christmas Carol Challenge

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.

Over on the Artisan Design DT Collective members were challenged to make two creations – one a card and the other a tag or similar.  One was to be themed on the book “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens and the other was to be themed on any Christmas carol of our choice.  It was up to us which creation was themed on the book and which the carol.

Before I go ahead and show  you what I made for each part of the challenge I’d like to let everybody know that Pete Simpson, the Designer/Owner of Artisan Designs UK, is aiming to do a Facebook Live on Friday 13th at 7.00pm.  I believe it will be on his page – Here!

He’s been working on designs for texture stamps for months (he’s also been moving home so had to put some things like launching them on hold until he was all moved in) and you can see and buy them when he launches the first batch of them in the Facebook Live.

I’m sure that they will appeal to a lot of people, so please do make a note in your diary of the date and time and go and see what he’s got new this time.

He’s even announced that he will be giving two great prizes away at random, but I’ll leave him explain and show them to you.

The Card

For the card I chose the carol “Draw yn ninas Dafydd Frenin”, which is the Welsh version of “Once in Royal David’s city”.

I’ve used three different Artisan Design background papers for this card.  I found a silhouette of the Bethlehem skyline online, which I printed out and cut out to put accross the centre of the card. With strips of two backgrounds above and below.

I stamped the side of the AD fern stamp in glue and guilded it on one of the background papers that I’d cut to fit a recess I created in my card.  I also stamped in flitter glue and guilded a leaf from one of the AD Build a Flora stamp sets and an angel from Chocolate Baroque onto stamping cardstock and guilded them as well before cutting them out. The leaves were stuck together to create a white poinsettia type plant with guilding flake center.

The card itself has had a recess made in it.

The Tag

I spent a lot of time trying to think about what to do for this tag, bareing in mind that I’ve never read the book or seen a film of the story, only read a condensed bit about the book and seen snippets about the story on TV.  I knew it was about Scrooge and some ghosts and a Tiny Tim, and that miserly Scrooge became nice Scrooge, but that was about it.

So, I did what most would do and looked it up online, heading over to Wikipedia.  And the first thing I saw was an image of the cover of the first edition. Which got me thinking – rather than doing a tag about the story in the book, why not do a tag about the book itself and the characters – Wikipedia did have a bit about the story giving the characters names.

So I took a sheet of Artisan backround and cut a tag from it.  I also made a smaller tag from plain cardstock and matted a small piece of another AD background on it.

I downloaded the image of the first edition cover and resized it in Publisher. I also typed out some wording for the smaller tag as well as the character names, putting banner shapes and borders around them.  These were all printed out onto one sheet of paper before being cut out.

I took another sheet of paper and stenciled through the AD Laural Burst stencil in a vintage green and vintage red colour Dinky Inkies.  This was the “wrapping paper” to wrap the book in, so I tore it in the middle to look like a hastily torn wrapped gift.  This was mounted onto the tag using foam tape to give it dimension and the torn edges were curled back to allow the book name and author to be visible. I then attached the wording to the small tag, and the character names coming away from the book.

I finished by attaching the two tags together using several strands of twine and makeing the ends into a tassel.

You can just make out the book details from the cover.

The character names coming out of the book.

The small tag.

.

I hope to have a few more posts of assorted makes to show you before Christmas, so keep an eye out for those.

12th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019 – English Cards

12th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019 – English Cards

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

The batch of cards I’ve got to show you today are a bit of an assortment that I will put into a big pack where customers can choose single cards for £1 each.

This particular small batch are English cards where I’ve used greetings from within the cardmaking collection I used.  They were simply made by scoreing and folding co-ordinating cardstock from within the collection and attaching toppers and greetings.

Some have matching inserts from within the collection and some have plain, printed, paper inserts.

Unfortunately some of the cards have proved difficult to photograph with the greetings clear because of glare and whiteouts, due to bad lighting, foiling, etc.

11th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019 – Welsh Cards

11th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019 – Welsh Cards

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

The batch of cards I’ve got to show you today are a bit of an assortment that I will put into a big pack where customers can choose single cards for £1 each.

What I Used

For the first card I stamped in FlitterGlu before adding guilding flakes to it once it was tacky.  I am very impressed with how sharp the image is once I rubbed off the excess flakes.  It was then trimmed and attached to matting and layering on a card.

For the other cards in this batch I used a Hunkydory Christmas collection.  I just pulled out things that went together, scored sheets of cardstock from the collection or my stash to make a base card, and then added toppers and other items.  Each card has either a plain and printed insert or an insert from the collection that matches the outside of the card.

Nadolig Llawen is Welsh for Happy Christmas.

10th Batch Of Christmas Cards – English Cards

10th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019 – English Cards

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

In my last blog post I mentioned having a session of making both English and Welsh Christmas cards.  I showed you six of the Welsh cards I made in the previous post.  Today I am showing you six of the English Christmas cards I put into one pack.  There will be another post coming with the rest that I put into a big bag that people could select ones that they liked out of.

What I Did

Today’s batch didn’t require a lot of work as I chose various components from a Hunkydory Christmas cardmaking collection that all worked together.  I scored some of the co-ordinating cardstock and folded to make my base cards and used co-ordinating inserts for most of the cards, or a plain insert with either a typed greeting or used one of the greetings toppers from the colection.

9th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019 – Welsh Cards

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

Was expecting a visit from the doctor to see my mother so I couldn’t go back to bed to rest.  I therefore tacked makeing some more Welsh and English Christmas cards.  I wasn’t up to doing stamping and colouring so I went back to the Hunkydory collection for components to make all the cards.  In the end I had around 18 cards made.  6 Welsh cards were put together into one pack (these are what I have to show you today), 6 English were put together into another pack (keep an eye out for a post showing them in a couple of days once I finish cropping the photos and editing the blog post), and the rest were some of each that I’ve put into the big pack where people can choose individual cards from to suit their needs.

What I Used

For all six cards I’ve got to show you today I used a Hunkydory Christmas collection. I just pulled out things that went together, scored sheets of cardstock from the collection or my stash to make a base card, and then added toppers and other items. Each card has an insert that matches the cardstock I used to make the base card from the collection.

As well as working on posts for the rest of the cards I made the same day as these, I still need to make some more Christmas cards, and I have other projects on the go as well, so keep an eye out for more posts over the next few days.

6th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019 – Welsh Cards

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

Today’s sellection of Christmas Cards again show a collection of 6 cards I put together into a pack for selling at our Chapel, as well as one more dimensional card that I packed as an individual card for selling – it is more dimensional and ornate and I charge a little more for this type of card as they take longer to make and use up more material.

I did a couple of different shaped cards this time.  Some have a matching insert from the collection while others have a plain insert with just a printed greeting.

I just went through the collection, pulled out pieces that went together, cut and constructed.
