Masculine Foliage

I think it's been well established by now that masculine cards are what everyone struggles with. I always put them off when I know that I have to make one. Anyway I made a masculine card for Karl's Opa on night shift the other night and I'm so so so happy with it. I usually doubt weather the recipient will like what I made but I know that this card will go down a treat. Here's what I created for him...

If you compare this card to the previous one you'll be able to tell that I'm a bit in love with Tearing, Crumb Cake and French Foliage atm hahaha. Also need to highlight I used More Mustard... I never use more mustard. And I think it really sets the card off. I think I'll be challenging myself to use it again.

Stamp Set: French Foliage, Beautiful Butterflies
Ink: More Mustard, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Lucky Limeade
Cardstock: Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Old Olive
Accessories: Sponge Daubers, Dimensionals

Thanks for looking,

JAI 87

Hi guys,

Guess what! I finally bought a new camera. Woo! That means lots more posts. It also means you need to bare with whilst I get used to it and work out how to use lighting with it as I didn't need to with my SLR. Anywho I'm excited I can back into challenges again. Today I used these beautiful colours from Just Add Ink...

Here's the card I made. Now the photo doesn't do it justice cos I need to play around with lighting and you can't tell dimension. It's a pity I already gave it to my dear friend Bec (Happy Birthday Bec) otherwise I'd work on another photo tomorrow. Anyway, here's the card

Stamp Set: Summer Solice, Creative Elements, Teeny Tiny Sentiments, French Foliage
Cardstock: Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Whisper White
Ink: Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake
Accesories: Aqua Painter, Dimsionals, Glue Dots, 1 3/4" Circle, Sponge Daubers, Crumb Cake Ribbon

200 Posts, Woo!

Well I can't believe I would ever make 200 posts when I started my wee little blog years ago but I got here. How exciting!!!!

Also I really want to apologise for my quietness during the last month. Truth be told my SLR decided to die and I haven't had time to go camera shopping but hoping it will happen during the week when I finally have 3 days off work. So I have made lots of beautiful creations and haven't been able to share them. I do however have a card to share today. I was really desperate to be able to put something on my blog so the mr took this photo at Maccas on his phone and then I editted it on the computer lol. I made the card for my beautiful niece who turned 4 during the week. Shes growing up too quickly.

Unfortunatly the photo doesn't do the card the justice it deserves. There is stamping on the daffodil panel and dazzling diamonds on the wand that you just can't see. As well as the dimensions from the dimensionals. There are a few things I do love on this card from the new catty though:
1. The Princess- Will get alot of work out in my house of girls
2. Wisteria Wonder - need I say anymore?? Divine
3. The new 2 1/2" circle punch. Extra large and fabulous! Love it.

Stamp Set: Perfect Princess
Cardstock: Watercolouring paper, Wisteria Wonder, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Melon Mambo Prints DSP
Ink: Wisteria Wonder, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Peach Parfait, Blushing Bride
