May the Forest be with you

Hello lovely peeps, and welcome to my new email follower :o)

Just popping in to show you the birthday card I made for hubby. He is a Star Wars fan so the sentiment that came with the Forest Friends stamp set from MFT is perfect :o)

I stamped several of the characters onto Neenah Super Smooth 120gsm and cut them out with a small border. I coloured them in with Promarkers and a white gel pen for the deer's spots.
Oatmeal, Burnt Orange, Fire Brick
Ice Grey 1,2 and Blender
3210, 3255, 3290, 9400, 9403, 9404 (Graph'Its)

Each animal was glued onto a stitched circle, die cut from First Edition papers. The fox and owl have little light sabres made from matching paper. The HB stamp is from an old Kanban set.

Motherly Love on Throwback Tuesday

Hello lovely peeps

This week's Throwback Tuesday make is a card that I made with one of Leonie Pujol's Entwined Heart dies.

When I first saw the Funky Heart Base it reminded me of those abstract porcelain figurines of a mother and her child, so for my card I decided to sketch some faces inside the heart.

I kept the rest of the card very simple. The heart and 'Love' (from the same set) are cut from pink Adorable Scorable card, with cream AS for the base and banner. A little organza bow in the child's hair makes her look a little more girly.

If you would like to recreate this for your personal use you can download my drawing on my Freebies page.

Dotty About You on Throwback Tuesday

Hello lovely peeps

This week's unblogged card is using one of Leonie Pujol's Entwined Heart dies.

The inspiration came from the lovely dotty design in the Pretty Borders stamp set, which I've stamped all the way around the edge of the card.  I coloured in a few of the dots with a black fineliner pen and printed off the sentiment from my computer.

The heart outline was cut from white card using Entwining Joy, from the Big Heart set. After glueing it onto my card with Cosmic Shimmer glue I filled in the centre with small black dots and added tiny dots all around the outside.
