Christmas Cards – 037 to 042

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

English Christmas Cards

Hi all! Time to show you some more of the Christmas cards I’ve made so far this year.

As you have probably realised by now, if you’ve visted my blog a few times, the majority of the cards I make, whether for Christmas or other occasions, are Welsh cards.  But I do make a small number in English for some customers who want them.  The batch I’ve got to show you today is half a dozen English Christmas cards.

What I Did

As this is another batch of cards made using Hunkydory Christmas Collections from this year and last year you can find out what I did on the first post of the series – Here!

What I Used
Finished Cards

As I said in a previous Christmas card post – I’m numbering the Christmas cards I’m blogging this year so that I’ll know exactly how many I’ve made in total by Christmas.

This week, to have a bit of a change from the Hunkydory cards and the more simple ones with decoupage I’ve been doing, I’ve started makeing up a batch of Nativity Christmas cards using Debbi Moore Nativity kit and dies. I do like Christmas cards that show the Nativity – after all, that is the real reason for celabrating Christmas in the first place – and having dies to cut out the Nativity characters and animals allows for some dimensional elements when there’s no way I could cut them out by hand.  Keep an eye out for them appearing on my blog during the next couple of weeks..

Christmas Cards – 019 to 024

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

Christmas Cards

Hi all! Time to show you some more of the Christmas cards I’ve made so far this year.

What I Did

This batch of cards is similar to ones I showed you previously – here – only this time they are created using scalloped edge A5 base cards, not 6″ square cards.

After folding the cards I drew a border around about 1cm in from each edge in a fine Sharpie pen. I printed out the greeting “Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd Dda” onto perleascent paper – some in red and some in green.

These were then trimmed and stuck onto corresponding cardstock and the mat trimmed to around 0.5cm or 1cm before sticking onto the base card.

I’m still working my way through the decoupage Christmas themed images I’d stuck together previously.  These were stuck to the front of the base card using wet glue.

I finished off by putting a simple insert with the same greeting printed in black onto 120gsm paper on the inside.

What I Used
Finished Cards

As I said in a previous Christmas card post – I’m numbering the Christmas cards I’m blogging this year so that I’ll know exactly how many I’ve made in total by Christmas.

What is really odd about some of these photos is how the bright red writing on the pearlescent paper doesn’t show up well at all in some photos at some angles, even though it is practically as dark as the red mat behind the greeting panel.  If you look at the angled view next you can see it shows up much better at a different angle.  Strange!

Christmas Cards – 013 to 018

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

Christmas Cards

Hi all!  Time to show you some more of the Christmas cards I’ve made so far this year.

What I Did

This batch of cards is different to the previous batches, although I do have some more of the Hunkydory ones to show you again, but I thought I’d go for something different this time.

Each are based on a 6″x6″ square card with a border drawn around about 1cm in from each edge in a fine Sharpie pen.  I printed out the greeting “Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd Dda” onto perleascent paper – some in red and some in green.

These were then trimmed and stuck onto corresponding cardstock and the mat trimmed to around 0.5cm or 1cm before sticking onto the base card.

I had bought a pack of die cut decoupage which I spent an afternoon popping out and layering up using Pinflair Glue Gel.  These were left for a while – OK, quite a long time as I wasn’t feeling up to much at the time – then I stuck the decoupage onto the cards.

I finished off by putting a simple insert with the same greeting printed in black onto 120gsm paper on the inside.

I stamped my details onto the back to finish.

Althoug not large, because of the decoupage, these cards will not go through the post using a standard letter stamp, so either hand deliver, in with a parcel, or a large letter stamp for these.

What I Used
Finished Cards

As I said in a previous Christmas card post – I’m numbering the Christmas cards I’m blogging this year so that I’ll know exactly how many I’ve made in total by Christmas.

2020 Calendar – October

October Calendar Page & Life

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

Well, a new month has started therefore it’s time for a bit of a catchup and this month’s calendar page.

Jump to the “Crafting” section of this blog post to see that if you don’t want to read the next bit through. The photos of the calendar are near the end.

Life

At the start of September I thought the aches and pains in my left arm and shoulder, were easing – unfortunately it didn’t clear completely, and in fact came back much worse, not just when I moved and used it, but just lieing in bed trying to sleep.  This has really made things very difficult for me this month.  Not just effecting my ability to craft, but also my ability to do basic tasks around the house.

I have been doing a bit of browsing on-line, and doing a bit of keeping up with social media, but being in so much pain has meant very short sessions online, and very little reacting and commenting.  Please forgive me if I’ve not been round your blogs and active on the Facebook crafting groups. While I have seen a lot of your fantastic work, being online less has probably meant I’ve missed a lot.

After a doctor’s suggestion of putting a cold pack on the arm and shoulder actually made it stiffer and much more painful, I’ve now been given a course of stronger painkiller/antiinflamatories, and after a few days I am noticing a difference.  I’m also using heat packs and a massager, and re-starting to do a bit more of the exercises the physio gave me to do a long time ago.  Hopefully doing all together will get my shoulder back to where it was prior to me having the hernia operation and being banned from doing lifting, pulling, etc.  It’s never got full, normal, motion, but isn’t usually as painful as this when I just peel a few apples – what I did the Sunday before last that had me in tears within a short while of doing so.

You will have noticed that September was another month of very little blogging, and only quite simple crafting when something was actually needed during the month, but I do hope to do a bit of a catchup on blogging and build back up to batch Christmas Card makeing as soon as possible.

Of course, I had to come up with something for my mother’s calendar for October –

So that brings me to …

Crafting

As we are in the period of the year where the chapels of the area would normally have been holding their thanksgiving services, but the pandemic has meant that chapels haven’t re-opened in this area, I thought I’d go for a creation to do with thanking for this month’s calendar page, and chose autumnal colours.

If you haven’t seen the previous month’s pages you can see what I put on the January page – here. February page – Here! March page – Here! April page – Here! May page – Here! June page – Here! July – Here! August – Here! and September – Here!

What I Did

Keeping to the idea of not getting too complicated because of not being able to do a lot because of my health.  I took a sheet of deep blue cardstock, trimmed it a bit, and stamped a virginia creeper down it four times in metalic ink.  I also took a couple of cardstock strips that were off-cuts of other projects and stamped on them as well.

These two strips were positioned over two of the stamped images on the blue cardstock so that the part images matched.  I added more strips, weaving a few of them into each other, before sticking them all down.

I used my fingers to put on blobs and streaks of Inka Gold waxes in a few colours all over the project other than over the stamped images which I left clear.

I finished off the panel by sticking on various words in Welsh that I’d set up in Publisher and printed off and cut out.  The words mean Thank You, Thanksgiving, Thankful, Give Thanks, etc.  I matted the piece onto another sheet of cardstock that had a bit of a foiled pattern on it.

The finished panel was then stuck up on the calendar with fingerlift tape.

What I Used
  • Papermill Direct – 2020 Create-a-Calendar (You can get the 2021 Create-a-Calendar now – I have ordered a couple already.)
  • Some sheets and leftover strips of cardstock
  • We “R” Memory Keepers Stamping Press.
  • Midas ink from Crafters Companion in  Bronze
  • Sheets 120gsm good quality paper – for printing out month title, wording, etc
  • Fingerlift Tape
  • Pinflair Bookbinding Glue
  • Paper Trimmer
  • Scissors
  • Virginia Creeper Stamp from Artisan Design UK
  • Viva Decor Inka Gold Waxes in several colours
The Finished Page

This is the month title strip.

This is the panel ready to stick on the calendar.

This is both stuck on the calendar.

It’s amazing the different look and shine you see from different angles due to the metalic waxes.

.

Hopefully this month will be a bit better for me with an improvement in my health, aches and pains, and I can get on with more crafting and blogging.

Have a great month everybody.

A Birthday Card For My Sister

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

A Birthday Card For My Sister

Yesterday I showed you the gift I made for my sister.  I gave that to her when she did a flying visit here at the end of the summer holidays before she went back to work at the start of the school term.  Because it was dimensional and breakable I didn’t want to have to pack and post it and risk it getting damanged.

But I didn’t give her her birthday card from my mother and myself as I knew that would be easier to post – plus I hadn’t made it when she was here.

My sister doesn’t like ornate and “fussy”, and with my arm and shoulder being in agony at the time I wasn’t up to makeing anything ornate, so I went for a simple card.

I printed out a greeting in green, with a green border, as well as printing the same on an insert sheet (and even printed her name and address and postage label), onto 120gsm white paper.

Scored and folded in half an A3 sheet of 350gsm white cardstock to make an A4 base card.

I used a Sharpie, fine tip, green pen and a ruler to draw a border around the base card.  Cut out the greetings panel and matted it onto a piece of green cardstock before attaching it to the centre of the card.

I then used some floral layers from the same Forever Flowerz Roses kit I’d used to make her gift (that I showed you yesterday), I cut the backs off two daisy centres from another Forever Flowerz kit, and stuck these to the front of the card using Pinflair Glue Gel, adding some leaves that were also from Forever Flowerz.

.

Now that I’ve been prescribed stronger pain killers, I am going to try and catch up a bit on blogging what I’ve already made, so keep an eye out for them over the next few weeks. Then I’ll try and get back on track makeing my Christmas cards.

A Card For My Aunt

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

A Birthday Card For My Aunt

I showed you the gift and the card I made for my mother’s birthday in my last couple of posts.  Well, one of my aunts has her birthday the day following my mother, so I needed to make a card for her as well.

I had the same problem of agony in my arm and shoulder makeing crafting very, very, difficult, so again I chose to make a simple card for her.

Today I have the very simple card I made her to show you.

I chose a brightly coloured image from a Hunkydory Little Book, matted it onto blue cardstock, stuck it to the front of a pre cut and scored base card and added a foiled banner greeting that said “Penblwydd Hapus”.  I finished off with an insert that said the same.

I tried to take photos from several slightly different angles to see if I could catch the foiled greeting and show off the colours at their best.  Not my best photos ever, but I think you can see that the card depicts an under the sea scene.

.

Now that I’ve been prescribed stronger pain killers, I am going to try and catch up a bit on blogging what I’ve already made, so keep an eye out for them over the next few weeks. Then I’ll try and get back on track makeing my Christmas cards.

Mam’s Birthday Card

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

A Birthday Card For My Mother

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

Yesterday I showed you the gift I’d made for my mother for her birthday, and explained that I’d kept it simple because of being in agony with my shoulder.

Today I have the very simple card I made her to show you.

Mam likes watching the birds from her bedroom window – in addition to a bird feeding “tree” that I gave her several years ago that sits in a flower bed visible from her window, I’ve also put a stick on feeder onto her window so that she can see the birds coming to feed better.  So I decided to use an image of a bird from one of the Hunkydory Little Books for Mam’s card this time.

I simply matted the image onto a piece of blue cardstock, and then stuck this onto the front of a pre-shaped and scored base card.  I added a foiled banner greeting that says “Penblwydd Hapus” to the front and an insert that said the same inside.

Unfortunately my photos are not the best this time and I didn’t feel up to re-takeing the photos.

.

Now that I’ve been prescribed stronger pain killers, I am going to try and catch up a bit on blogging what I’ve already made, so keep an eye out for them over the next few weeks.  Then I’ll try and get back on track makeing my Christmas cards.

Welsh Birthday Cards

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

Cardiau Penblwydd Cymraeg~Welsh Birthday Cards

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

Just a catch up post to show a couple of cards I made before my medical emergency that I hadn’t blogged.

The end of June it was my brother’s birthday.  This meant I needed to make two cards – one from my mother and one from myself.

I returned to the Hunkydory kit of African animal silhouettes (the same ones I used to make the batches of cards to give to friends and family at the start of lockdown which you can see here if you haven’t seen them previously).

What I Did

For the first card I used one of the black silhouette foiled acetates from the collection, scored it and wrapped it around a card that I’d put on some of the background from the kit onto.  I finished it off with Penblwydd Hapus peeloff.

The second card was made using some bits cut off when I made the big batch of cards and a topper.

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.
