I made these... lion around

More from my recent invites commission for a baby's first birthday today.  The rest of the set...

Lot's more punches for this card... and lots more cards:

You're having a giraffe

Today I have part of a commission to share with you, and it was certainly a challenging one to make 10 of these cards!

At one point I actually felt like I had bitten off more than I could chew, after punching out yet another giraffe 'horn' and set of nostrils. 

I was really pleased when they were finished and think they came out ok in the end :).

Fiddly dies for a birthday

I really like using my Big Shot for cutting out and embossing card making bits and bobs. The die I've used for today's card comes from the Hello You thinlits die from Stampin' Up! which I found very fiddly to use until I had tried it a few times.

Lotus Blossom card ideas

I absolutely love the Lotus Blossom stamp set from Stampin' Up!, although I did find it a little fiddly to work out the colour combo's and deal with stamping off the ink for some of the images.

This 3 layered stamp can be inked in so many colours to create lovely flowers - I stuck with Rose Red and Pink Pirouette, although they are retired colours, they still look great.

Mothers Day 2015

Honestly, I've been rubbish at keeping my craft blog up to date!

Today, I was reminded to share a card with you... as it's Mothers Day...

I've used the Circle Card thinlits die from Stampin' Up! for the base, cut from Crumbcake card and then featured the Beautiful Butterflies dies.
