Father’s Day Cards and Gift box

31 August, 2010

I made all the Father’s day cards (including the ones for grandad and my dad), the kids have written in them and two of them have been sent. As for hubby’s card, it’s ready for Sunday. Here’s the card and the gift box. The box is empty as I still need to buy the items to fit inside… As the box is pretty big, (and it was a little difficult to photograph it) what do you think I should fill it with?

Here’s the card using the retired Greetings Eight stamp set and Haiku DSP.

Brayered Upsy Daisy

30 August, 2010

A touch of brayering, I couldn’t decide how dark I wanted it, so the first card is brayered four times with ink to get a rich Baja Breeze colour, and the second card is brayered twice. Which one do you like best?

Bright Sunny Pink Flamingo

29 August, 2010

Lots of items that are about to retire on this card! I love the bright boldness of the colours and I am going to miss the large flowers from the Pretties pack. I inked up the large flower in Summer Sun to match the base card.

So contact me before the end of this month (in just a few short days), to get your supplies before they go for good!

Love Birds

28 August, 2010

I was looking through my papers that are about to retire and when I came to the Candy Lane papers, I picked up the one with the love birds printed on it. I had to do something with that! It’s just so gorgeous, not sure why I never saw it before. So here’s my creation. I’m going to give it to hubby when he comes home just to let him know that I love him.
