Baby Cards for Make Shift

Hi there

Here is just a small selection of baby cards that I have made for Make Shift.  At the moment I have just done blue and pink cards, but will look at doing some different colours like yellow, green and purple.

I have used a variety of materials and tools in these cards:

Creative Memories Pink Shimmer Cardstock

Creative Memories Border Maker – scallop cartridge and twinkle chain cartridge

Creative Memories Fabulous Tone on Tone paper

Creative Memories rotary trimmer – scallop edge

Bazzill Cardstock

Cuttlebug embossing folders – Swiss dots and Welcome Baby, buttons strip

Memory Box dies – Pram

Kaisercraft pink bling

These cards have been very quick and easy to complete.  Once we have Make Shift up and running I hope to be able to run workshops teaching cardmaking and will also look to having some quick make and takes when I am working in the shop.

Happy Crafting



Handcrafted cards

Hi there

I have added some new photos of cards that I have just completed on my Crafty Creations page.  I have used a mix of different products to create 10 cards out of one sheet of die cut paper tole images.  Very economical to make a themed set of cards and would be great in a set as a gift.  This sheet is lovely with the metallic finish and looks great as a three dimensional embellishment.

Here is just one of them – check out the rest on my Crafty Creations page:

As you can see my template for an Easel card has been utilised to great effect here.

I hope you are all having a crafty Easter.


Wedding card

I have got a lot of inspiration from Pinterest and decided to try my hand at doing a wedding card, using a different range of techniques.

I have embossed a cream metallic paper with a cuttlebug embossing folder.

Then on some scrap paper I have drawn a template for a dress and used that to cut out the shape from the embossed paper.

With my Creative Memories Blossom place’n’punch I have punch out a flower from some cream metallic paper.  I creased all the edges and then cut one crease to the middle.  I have pleated up the flower and then glued to flower onto the waist of the dress.

I have made the small flowers out of using my Border Maker system twinkle chain cartridge.  I have glued them with my CM glue pen onto the bodice.  I then put some pearls onto the middle of the flowers and also the middle of the larger flower.

I then cut a piece of Divine dark brown paper to back onto my cardstock.

I cut an oval out of cream Divine paper and laid it over the top of the brown paper.  I also trimmed the cream paper to make the brown paper mat the cream paper. I just eyeballed how much I trimmed it.

I then stamped a Congratulations from Stamp’n’Up on a piece of scrap cream paper.  This was then matted in onto the brown paper and then placed it on the bottom front of the card.Cheers for now.  Patricia
