Craft #14 – Pregnancy Card

11 Feb

I made this card last year for a friend of mine, her baby shower was one of the only times I ‘socialised’ in 2014. I actually only remembered it when I made the other pregnancy card, and then had to track down a photo.

The image is manipulated from Google, and cut with my trusty Silhouette. I used plain coloured Kaisercraft paper, plus paper from their ‘Magic Happens’ collection. I hand drew the dandelion as I was pretty sure the Silhouette would struggle to cut such small, fine pieces.

I’m pleased to say she now has a healthy baby boy.

Craft #11 – Bun in the Oven Card

31 Jan

I’ve spent the last week withdrawing from Norspan pain patches as I was switched over to a different pain killer that I’m NOT allergic to. Before that I was already (extra) unwell so its been slow going.

Luckily I stumbled across the super adorable Lawn Fawn clear stamp collection.

I figure that if I buy a stamp, I own the design (not commercially but personally) and can therefore use it however I like.
And I like to scan it in to my computer so I can manipulate the image and cut coloured pieces.

So here’s my ‘Bun in the Oven’ card:

I used the ‘Plus One’ stamp collection, my Silhouette, plain coloured card stock in 2 brands plus some gorgeous silver paper that my beautiful friend Ever the Crafter sent me as part of my Christmas gift. And that was about it! I didn’t make this with anyone in mind, just I thought it was super cute 🙂
