Mothers Day Card and Gift

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

Mothers Day – Gift and Card

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

For Mothers Day this year, in addition to the usual shower gel, I decided to give my mother some Crystal Art wall decal butterflies as well as some other butterflies, and decided to keep the theme by using butterflies for her card as well.

CRAFTING
What I Did

I have a box with several crystal art butterflies ready to attach the crystals.  I made up 3 and sealed them before giving them to Mam.  They now decorate the wall opposite Mam’s bed, with one on her window, for her to have something cheerfull to look at. I also put up some other types of butterflies for her.

For her card I used an 8″ square card base, attached a piece of cardstock as a background and used some sticky back lace to create a sort of frame.  I used some Forever flowerz layers thatI had left from my big Flower makeing marathon before Christmas that I stuck to the card. I then added sticky back gems to the middle of the flowers.  I added a peel-off greeting “Sul Y Mamau Hapus” – Welsh for Happy Mother’s Sunday – and then added small butterflies from my crafting sash.

It was 3 larger versions of the same type of butterflies I put on Mam’s wall with the crystalart ones

Christmas Cards – D

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

CRAFTING

Only two cards this time, both made by recycling old cards.

What I Did

I cut the fronts off a couple of old Christmas cards and cut them to the size required.

I used 6″ square base cards that came with a pre foiled border and put plain inserts with just a greeting inside.

I used foam tape to attach the toppers, and fingerlift tape to attach the inserts.

Christmas Cards – C

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

CRAFTING

In this blog post I have another batch of 6 Christmas cards with wintery scenes to show you. They are made with the same 6 images as in my last post, but made yp slightly differently.

What I Did

I used some square toppers that have artwork by Pollyanna Pickering on them.

I used 6″ square craft card base cards and put plain inserts with just a greeting inside.

For these cards I didn’t use lace as in the previous batch, but I added some “snow” texture over some of the slow areas on each topper for a slightly different look and feel.

I used foam tape to attach the toppers, and fingerlift tape to attach the inserts.

This btch of cards were all made using this year’s Hunkydory Nativity themed collection.  Some are made using cardstock from within the collection and for others I’ve used other base cards of one type or another from my crafting stash.

A Card For My Mother On Mothers Day

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

As well as using an image from a kit I’d bought (Bree Merrin I think), I used flower layers and leaves from a Forever Flowerz kit for my mother’s card this year.

Blue is her favourite colour so I chose a blue tit image and used blue and yellow papers for the background.

Here’s the finished card.

A Further 2 Birthday Cards

Birthday Cards For One Of My Sisters

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

In my first post of this month I mentioned that several family members have their birthdays in February so I’d have to make a card each from Mam and myself for each of them.

This post is showing the two cards made for one of my sisters.

CRAFTING
What I Did

I sat with my mother and we chose a couple of toppers we liked from some kits I had.  I then chose some papers for matting and layering, and collected together some more of the little flowers and trailing ivy that I’d cut out using dies for a previous project.

I cut the papers to size, at the same time trimming the white paper a little before sticking the sheets, folded in half, as inserts inside the cards.

For the first card I stuck the topper to the mat using fingerlift tape, and then the matted topper to the base card using 1mm deep foam tape.

For the second card I stuck the topper to the mat using 1mm deep foam tape, and then the matted topper to the bae card using fingerlift tape.

I added the flowers and foliage, adding faux gems to the flower centres, and finished off by adding peeloff greetings inside and out.

And Another 2 Birthday Cards

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

Birthday Cards For Yet Another Of My Nephews

In my first post of February I mentioned that several family members had their birthdays during that month so I’d have to make a card each from Mam and myself for each of them.

None of them like fussy or fancy, so I’ve kept the cards I’ve made already quite simple, concentrating on rural to suit the recipients.

CRAFTING
What I Did

I started by scoreing snd folding white cardstock to make 2 A5 base cards. Into these I stuck inserts.

I looked through a pack of topper images with my mother and we chose a couple we thought would be suitable for the recipient.

For the first card I stuck the topper to the mat using fingerlift tape, and then the matted topper to the base card using 2mm deep foam tape.

For the second card I stuck the topper to the mat using 2mm deep foam tape, and then the matted topper to the bae card using fingerlift tape.

I finished off by adding greetings both inside and out.

Welsh Sympathy Cards

Cardiau Cydymdeimlad – Sympathy Cards

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

LIFE

Life is strange for everybody right now.  And one strange thing is not being able to attend funerals, especially of those who are related or who were people who meant a lot to us.

However, modern technology has meant that we can attend those funerals that have been transmitted over the Internet. Not the same as being there in person, but at least the families know that they are not alone.

Mam and I have attended two such funerals in the last couple of months.  One was the funeral of the widow of a person who had been a minister in our chapel while I was growing up.  She’d taught in the Sunday School.  A lovely woman.  The other funeral was of an aunt, the wife of Dad’s brother, who was quite a character.

Of course, these two sad events meant makeing some, always difficult to make, Sympathy Cards.

Today I have those two cards to show you.

CRAFTING
What I Did

I didn’t start off with any particular designs in mind, I just let inspiration guide me as I browsed through my collection of dies and selected random ones that “spoke” to me at the time. I’m afraid I don’t have the details of most of the dies used as I’ve got them in files on magnetic sheets and they’ve long since become separated from the packaging they came in.

I scored and folded in half the white cardstock to makr A5 base cards, anc I inserted an insert into each with fingerlift tape.

I started cutting out the shapes chosen from a variety of cardstock colours and then started placeing them onto the base cards, experimenting with orientation, layer colour order, etc., until I was happy with the look of each card. I did ask Mam’s opinion before finally sticking everything in place.

I put peel-off greetings on the outside and on the inserts.

What I Used
  • A4 sheets 350gsm White Cardstock
  • Assorted Blues and Greys Cardstock – think they might all have been from the same pack I’ve had for some time
  • Sheet of light green paper
  • 2 A4 sheets of good quality white paper for inserts
  • SNAP Die Cutting Machine
  • Assorted Tattered Lace Dies
  • Paper Trimmer and Scorer
  • Fingerlift Tape
  • Glue
  • Sentiment Peeloffs
Finished Items

I have more cards and other items made that I haven’t blogged yet, so keep an eye out for them over the next few weeks.
