A Christening Card

Hello, I thought I would share this card I made for a customer for her niece's Christening Day.
I had the lovely image from  and sprayed it with Spray and Sparkle from then mounted it on silver mirri card.  I chose some lovely papers from the new DoCrafts collection and matted the image on one of the papers on to silver mirri card also.
I then embossed the card front using an A4 Embossing folder from Spellbinders and then die cut a border and stamped and die cut the flowers and flourishes from
I then printed out a sentiment and then die cut it. I added pearls to the sentiment and the center of the flowers.  The card opened like a backward easel, if that makes sense.

Creative Moments - Steam Punk Heart

Hello there, for my DT challenge for Creative Moments today I have used this amazing Steam punk Heart.  I have stamped a background on cream using Creative Expression stamps, used embossing folders and inked them with distress inks.  I die cut cogs and used metallic pan pastels over them so they look like rusty metal. I printed the heart out on cream cardstock and then coloured it with my Graph'it markers then distressed it and added glossy accents to the rings. I die cut a key and added a sentiment.  There it is!

Creative Moments DT Challenge - Sassy Studios

Hello, wow it is another month gone! Where does the time fly to?  I am working all hours at the moment and find it hard to craft in the evenings and at the weekends there are all the house chores to do!!! I have been making my first Christmas Cards this week though for a customer! I know, I know, Christmas cards in June!!!! It felt weird making them so early!  But about this lovely challenge for Creative Moments - I am using a lovely image by Sassy Studios - A real glamour Mum to be! 
I coloured her with my Graph'it markers, found this lush paper in my crafty stash with the word mother in many different ways and languages. I just love it.  I used my new Spellbinders frame, which is also fab and put it all together.  I really do not think it needs a sentiment, do you?

Creative Moments - One for the Boys

Hello there, I have to apologise for not getting my Creative Moments DT card on my blog in time this week.  Some how it turned from scheduled to draft!  But hey, here I am!

This week's challenge is sponsored by . I chose this image out of many as it was a cute dragon, ideal for boys and girls.  I coloured him in with my Graph'it markers and then cut him out and adhered him to a cute bug style backing paper and then matted it onto red cardstock.  Cut out a couple of sentiments and there you have it! One cute little lad's card. Hope you like it!
