A Simple Birthday Card.

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).  Hope you are well, enjoying nice weather, and having time for crafting and other “me time” as well.

Today I have a simple card I made for my brother-in-law for his birthday.  I guess you could call it “mixed media” as I’ve used material as well as cardstock and glitter glue this time.

What I Did

I started by choosing one of the images from the piece of material and cut it out so that there was a bit of a margin for turning over.  I then covered the front of the backing heavyweight cardstock with Bookbinding glue – couldn’t find my spreader so used a piece of cardstock to spread it very thinly.  I then put the material square over this and smoothed it out before burning it over, cutting off the corners to nearly the edge of the backing card, adding a bit of bookbinding blue to each turnover edge and sticking the material down.

I then went around the edge of the panel with the tube of glitter glue – not my best effort as it is a bit wobbly, but I was doing it in the week following my cateract operation when one eye had corneal odoema and I couldn’t see through it.

I then stuck the panel to the front of a base card and added a “Penblwydd Hapus” peeloff – which is Welsh for “Happy Birthday”.

What I Used
The Finished Card

Just a few different photos of the same card in different positions.

.

I still have a small number of crafted items to upload to a post on this blog, plus – it’s time to start Christmas Cards!  Yes, it really is!  So you can expect to see batches of those appearing on my blog in a couple of weeks time.

Vintage Male Themed Birthday Card

A Rural Themed Birthday Card For A Male

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

A Bit Of An Update

Skip to the card if you want!

My regular visits will have noticed that I have not made many posts to my blog this month. It has been an eventful month.

Following the development of a cateract in my left eye (a known side effect of the emergency opperation I had to treat a tare in the retina 18 months ago), I had been on the waiting list for a cateract operation for over six months. I had received a letter for a consutation appointment for the middle of June, but had a phone call before then offering me a cancelation the begining of the month. The eye had deteriorated so much since they had last seen me that they agreed to put me on a cancellation list as the waiting time was about six months. Wasn’t expecting much to happen, but within a couple of days I was phoned to ask if I could come in for the pre-opp eye measurements, etc., the following week. So having begged a lift up once from one of my sisters the first week of the month, I had to ask if she would be so kind as to drive me up again the following week. Even then I was told it could be up to three months before I would have the opp.

So I was very surprised to have another call within a week offering me 8am on the 25th for the opperation. So basicaly just over three weeks from consultation to opp.

Having already dragged my sister away from her farm work twice in two weeks I didn’t feel it would be fair to ask her to make the trek to the hospital a third time so soon, so this time I asked a friend who, every time she visits, tells us to remember she’s more than willing to help in any way she can. This friend has the added benefit of already having had a cateract operation herself so knew what I was going through.

So, by now I had the gooseberries coming ready in the garden, and just a few days before my operation to get them all in and sorted. Mam went on strike at one point and refused to top and tail any more and said that I should go and give a couple of pounds each to a few friends, including the one who was going to drive me to the hospital and back for the opp.

Don’t know why they are so keen to have everybody in the hospital by 8am as the surgeons certainly were not there, and the operations didn’t start for two hours, and as luck would have it I was the last of the morning list and wasn’t in until mid-day. With my M.E. and dodgy leg, sitting in a ward for four hours was not good for my aches and pains, and staring into the light for twenty minutes wasn’t good for my headache. But the operation went smoothly. Of course, I was feeling very rough by this stage in the day, so my friend went to fetch us some sandwiches for lunch and we ate in the car as there is no way I’d have made it to the restaurant.

By the time I got home I told Mam that my good eye was coming out in sympathy, running tears and strange lights, and, despite having sunglasses clipped to my glasses, and having a very smooth journey home, my headache was worse, as was my nausea. Only sat for a bit with Mam to tell her how it had gone before crawling into bed and realising that I had a migraine with flashing lights in both eyes, bought on no doubt by staring into the light during the opperation, and even when everything had settled down I couldn’t see through my good eye well enough to read the instructions on the Pot Noodle for supper, in fact, had to get the carer to point me in the direction of the Pot Noodle on the counter as I couldn’t even see that.

Thankfully, by the following morning, the eye that hadn’t been operated on was back to normal, though I’d been warned that it would take 24 hours for the gas that had been put in to hold the lens in place to clear so I shouldn’t expect to see anything through the operated eye. Spent most of the day in bed just hopeing the aches and pains would go and that I wasn’t going to go into an M.E. crash, and was pleased to see that colours were appearing round the perifery of the operated eye by lunch time.

Only problem was that by the following day I still could only see a dense, white, nothing, in the centre of the operated eye. And by now I was starting to get a bit worried – I knew that I shouldn’t be able to focus correctly with it as the glasses I had were the wrong prescription for the new lens put in, and in any case, it needed to finish healing and the drops will make it a bit blurry while I’m on those, but nobody I know who has had a cateract operation has said that the centre of their vision was a big white area after two days. So I phoned the hospital to see if it was anything to worry about, especially in view of the fact that the first evening I had the migraine and wouldn’t have been aware if any post opperation anomalies had occured. I was hopeing that they would say that it could take a while longer for the centre whiteout to clear and not to worry. But no! They wanted me back up at the hospital at 5.30pm Thursday evening. So a quick call to my friend again – her husband was due back with their car by about 3pm so yes she could take me back. And off we went again.

It seems that I have Corneal Oedoema – the cornea having started swelling up as a result of the opperation – something that does happen but not often I gather – and that the swelling should go down gradually by about a week, at which point I won’t have a big white area in the centre of my vision with that eye.

I’m so thankful to my sister and my friend for their help in getting me there and back a couple of times each.

So, by now, the eye is begining to clear, and although I can’t focus properly yet, the white area is much less dense so I am seeing things through it, which means that it will probably have cleared by around Thursday, as the person I saw last Thursday said.

So now, there are a whole lot of things I’m not suppose to do, to keep from damaging or getting anything into the healing eye, and so much I want to get on with, both in the garden and with my crafting, but two trips to the hospital in one week has finished me off for a while, and I am resting as much as possible and doing just enough crafting to keep me sane as well as watering what needs watering in the garden with a directional head on a hosepipe.

The one thing that did need doing was a card for my brother for his birthday, and that is what I have to show you today.

Welsh Birthday Card

I cut a piece of wood patterend paper and stuck it to the front of my base card.  I then tore some pieces from some brown paper that came wrapped within a parcel.  One piece I scrunched up a lot and then opened it out before rubbing some gold embelishment mousse around the edges and over the raised creases.  I stamped onto the other pieces that were mostly flat and then tore the edges before adding some gold around the edge of those panels as well.  I quickly added some colour using two different colours of re-inkers used as a watercolour paint. Once these were dried I glued them in position onto the card front as well as adding a peeloff greeting.

What I Used
The Finished Card

This is what the finished card looked like.

With this photo I’m trying to show that, although I used wet glue to attach the layers, the fact that I had crinkled up the brown paper mat before sticking everything in places means that there is a natural dimention to the card and a very rustic look.

I added very little colouring, only using two different Dinky Inkies re-inkers and a paint brush on the grass and the farmer.

I’ve tried to photograph this in different lighting so that the gold coloured Nuvo Moose stands out.

.

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.

65th Wedding Anniversary

 Posted by at 08:00 am

65th Wedding Anniversary Card

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

While I have made a 60th Wedding Anniversary card in the past, I had never been asked for a 65th one before, and neither myself or the person who ordered it knew what the theme for a 65th Wedding Anniversary was.  So out came my tablet, and a quick search brought up the answer – Blue Sapphire.

Trying to get everything I wanted to use on the card as one shade of blue wasn’t going to happen, so I decided to make the card using several shades of blue, throwing in some blue sticky back gems to finish it off.

What I Used

(Some of the items I’ve used I can no longer find for sale either where I got them originally or in other online stores I use.)

What I Did

I coloured the flower at the centre of the Kanban sheet in shades of blue using Chameleon Pens.  I then used my die cutting machine to cut out the various elements and frames from the sheet as well as using the dies to cut mats in various shades of blue to go behind the lacey framing layers.

I scored the A3 sheet of cardstock at 8″, folded it over, and scored again at 8″ from the fold.

I cut the sheet at the second score line and also squared off the card at 8″.

I used MS Publisher to position the required wording for the front in my chosen position for the card front centre and also the wording for the insert.  These were printed off on the relevant sheet, again in a blue tone of lettering.  I used the Cutterpiller to trim the insert to the required size and one of the Kanban dies to cut the card front square.

I then used clear foam tape and squares, as well as finger-lift tape, to build up the matting and layerin for the front of the card, making some layers flush and some layers raised.

The insert has a half inch folded over edge that is stuck down inside the back of the card so the insert itself can have an extra message written on the back of it as well if the person who ordered it wants.

Finished Card And Insert

This is the insert – The Welsh greeting translates as “65 Years Of Married Live – Happy Wedding Anniversary Cellabration”.

This is the front of the card from more or less above – had to take the photo from slightly off straight because of the flare from the coloured flowers and the foil.  Very difficult to get photos of something with holographic foiling all over without just getting streakes of white-out areas.
The card just twinkles from the foiling and sticky back gems when moved in the light.

Penblwydd Priodas Hapus simply means Happy Wedding Anniversary.

A different angled look at the card.

Another couple of different angled looks at the card, trying to show that the layers are raised so the card has some dimension.

.

I’m still working on several projects, including an order for some of the air dry clay flowers like I’ve shown previously.  I may introduce some colour to some, instead of just white flowers as well.

Mother’s Day Card

A Mother’s Day Card

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

It’s Mother’s Day, or Mothering Sunday as it is also called, so time to show you the card I made for my mother as she will have been given it by now.

Of course, I made a Welsh card, “Sul Y Mamau”, for my mother, and with no need to worry about postage I could make it dimensional.  It simply says MAM on the outside, and after taking the pictures I added a peel-off greeting inside.

What I Used
The Card

This is a head on view of the card.

This is a closer look at the punched out word MAM.

I used an insert from the pack inside.  It has a faint version of the flowers in the umbarella topper towards the bottom left.  I put a piece of the plain, white, card that had been cut from the back behind the recess to cover the X cut.

.

I should be back with another post before long as I have some more projects on the go.  Please pop back to have a look.

Some Crafting In March

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

Some Musing and Crafting

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

First some musings and then a couple of cards today.

Musings

Sometimes I just go on a wonder around the Internet to look for information after hearing or reading something. A couple of weeks ago I heard somebody on some TV programme (I wasn’t really paying attention to what was on the TV so don’t know who or which programme) mentioned someting about different colours having different meanings and moods.

Well, there are a lot, and I mean a lot, of different, sometimes conflicting, theories and meanings to be found online.

So, as I like purple – some purple shades are currently my favourite colour – I’m sure you’ve already guessed that as it is the colour I chose for banners, etc., on my Facebook Page, YouTube Channel, etc.

Therefore I picked one site’s info on the colour purple to look at more closely – “The Psychology of Color: A Designer’s Guide to Color Association & Meaning” posted by Rikard, though he wrote it up from a number of sources he lists at the bottom of his post.

This is the paragraph I picked out “Purple combines the stability of blue and the energy of red. It symbolizes power, nobility, luxury, and ambition. It conveys wealth and extravagance. Purple is associated with wisdom, dignity, independence, creativity, mystery, and magic.”

Looking at the last sentence –

  • I’d like to think that I have picked up a bit of “wisdom” over the years.
  • I’d like to think that I show a bit of “dignity” as well.
  • My “independence” has been curtailed quite a bit with my health/disability problems, but as far as this blog, and my other online presences are concerned, I am quite independent as far as doing my crafting, putting the content online, and as far as far as my choice of what, and who’s company, crafting materials I mention and link to. If I don’t use it I don’t link to it (be they ordinary links or affiliate links)
  • My “creativity” is quite random, both in terms of how often and when I get creative, and as far as what type of creating I may do at any particular time.  Well, if you have been to visit my blog in the past you will have seen that I like variety of crafting to keep me interested, from quick, short projects, to long projects.
  • Now I don’t think that there’s much “mystery” about me or my online presence.
  • And finishing with “magic” – sometimes crafting can be quite magical.  How colours change as a medium dries.  How a blank piece of something can change into a crafted piece of something.

So, what’s your favourite colour? – perhaps one that appears often in your crafting, or one you’ve chosen as the main colour of your blog or other online presence?  You can even click on the link I give above to see whether your colour choice has any meaning that resonates with you.

Crafting – Card Making

With having a lower molar tooth extracted on Thursday I haven’t felt much like crafting, but Friday evening I thought it might take my mind off my aching jaw and lower face by having a play with making a couple of cards from a kit I had bought recently because I liked the birds on some of the toppers.

All the cardstock, backing papers, vellum, toppers, etc., came from the kit, so I only added some sticky stuff, some rub-ons to one card, and a couple of tools – going for easy crafting in bed rather than using trimmers, dies, etc.

Card 1

I’m not sure the photos show up that the cardstock and topper frame is a cream colour.

The front is a third cardstock and covered with parchment.

The topper was added using dimensional glue gel, everything else is stuck down using tape.

I haven’t put a greeting on either the outside or inside yet as it may be for Mothering Sunday or it may be for a birthday, and it depends who will use it whether the greeting will be in Welsh or English.

Card 2

I chose pale yellow as the main colour for this card, this time I’ve made the front half cut but the topper background is attached so that it is full length on the front and so the card stands tent fold.  This time I added glitter rub-ons, including one butterfly over a butterfly in the topper picture.

Again, the final topper is raised using glue gel and everything else is attached using tape.

And it looks like this when standing.

Hope you’ll come over for another look at my blog before long.  Have a great, crafting, day.

Another Wrapping Paper Card And Envelope

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

Having used wrapping paper to make a matching card and envelope for one of my younger nephews for his birthday, it did mean I needed to do something similar for his brother.

This time I went for Pokemon wrapping paper – bought via Amazon as I couldn’t find a suitable one with Tesco grocery deliveries a couple of weeks ago.

I didn’t think I needed to video the makeing of the card this time as the method was very much the same as the previous one.

Please pop over to YouTube to see the video of how I made the first one.

English – Here!

Cymraeg – Yma!

The Card

The main difference in this one is that the wrapping paper consisted of lots of square images, so rather than just cut a panel to fit the front of the card, I cut around the image squares as a strip and individual images.  I again used the tag as a topper, and used a fineliner pen to write the greeting, although I added some squiggly lines as well this time.

And here is my make.

The outside –

And the inside with the pocket – this time to hold a memory card, which is a very small looking gift that benefits being presented in a gift pocket inside a card rather than just putting wrapping paper around it.

The Envelope and Packed Gift

The envelope was made in exactly the same way as the previous one.  The gift was a bit more difficult to pack as it was a bit squishy, but it doesn’t look too bad I think.

This gift is a reasonably sized camera bag to hold all sorts of things in addition to the camera.  More difficult to wrap tidily than the box shown previously.  The more different the shape of the gift I’d recomend putting in tissue paper inside a box before wrapping as it looks far neater and keeps safer.

The Cake

No, sorry.  I didn’t decorate the cake!  This is a Tesco delivery one.  But I thought I’d show it to you in any case. Tesco obviously have a licence to make and sell Pokemon themed items such as cakes.

And it tasted very nice as well.

Blog/Facebook/YouTube Giveaway Draw

If you’ve not already got your name into the hat for the giveaway draw I’m makeing to celebrate getting my YouTube channel set up and the first few videos uploaded, then please do go to my blog post – Here! – to find out how you could get several chances to get the tree I’m giving away.  You have until the last day in February to get your name into the hat up to four times.

Copyright

Remember that copyright rules apply to such things as images on wrapping paper.  There are well know companies who agressively go after people who make money from their copyrighted images, or who scan, copy, etc., and give them away to others to craft with.  It’s one thing to be creative and use wrapping paper in different ways to present gifts in a co-ordinated fashion that won’t look much of anything when wrapped in the normal fashion, such as makeing a pocket card to put the small memory card in, but you can not use wrapping paper to make cards to sell because you don’t have a licence to use them for personal or charitable gain. You can’t just take images from the Internet, print them out and use them in your crafting either – not unless you have bought a licence to do so or have permission from the copyright holder.

.

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.
