Birthday Boy is 2!

This is a card I made for my nephew who was 2 in late October. I thought instantly of my Magnolia stamps for this card so I opted to ink up Magnolia's 'Summer Edwin' and 'Rufus' who looks very like Buster!.

Image stamps are Magnolia - 'Summer Edwin' & 'Rufus', coloured using spectracolor (similar to prismacolor) and Sansador technique. Gold glitter on Edwin's wings is PeeWee.
Sentiment is by Penny Black Inc.
Ceramic Star can be bought in a pack in your local £1/99p stores, 3D Clear gloss used as an adhesive.
Dotty Ribbon is by Papermania.
Patterned Paper by K&Co.
Green cardstock by Cordinations, embossed with Cuttlebug 'Happy Birthday' folder.

Images: Magnolia's 'Love Muffin' decorated with assorted gems, gold PeeWee glitter , blue glitter glue & white liquid applique for texture to the icing. Sentiment is by All Night Media from 'Expressions Stamp & Embellishment Kit'.
Handmade green paper/ cardstock from multipack, embossed with Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' folder.
Patterned paper by K&Co.

That's all for now!

It's A Boy!

This card was handmade before christmas to celebrate the birth of my BIL's second son.

The stamps are Happy Hoppers by Stampabilities, the main image on the front of the card is called 'Yaaaawn' (HMGR1018) and the inner image is 'Sleepy Head' (HMGR1016). Both images have been coloured in with spectracolor pencils (old version of prismacolor pencils!) and Sansador odourless spirit. 'It's A Boy' sentiment is by Anna Griffin and a stamp I have had for years, so can safely assume it would be retired by now.
Cardstock is a double sided 12x12 sheet by Papermania, Border stamp by Papermania (free in a Goody Bag) and epoxy stickers by Papermania. Gems from Tesco Craft Basics set, sentiment stamped using Hot Off The Press stamp set (2nd hand stamp set from ebay) and all flowers by Prima Marketing.
That's all for now.

Sorry about the lack of postings!

Sorry for the lack of posts, dog ownership is hard work when it comes to training an extra large pup who is a little rebel! I have managed to make a few cards though in between practising the basics.

Buster was less than impressed with some boots he asked to borrow and asked next time to get them in blue:

And just to illustrate necessity of training due to his size, check this doodle out at 12 months of age. Buster says - 'No business like snow business, honey!'

Until next time!
