70th Anniversary Card

This card has taken all afternoon to do, as I designed it myself in Design Master the Craft Robo software. (First time I have designed the whole card) The 70th is using Rockwell Bold script that is welded to a base. The words Wedding Anniversary use Lucida Handwriting Italic again welded together. I have even managed to make an insert to match. The image is a mini postcard and the flowers are resin. I finally finished it by using two love heart gems as the dots for the 'I's'.

George and Dottie Platinum Anniversary Card

To make this card I used Design Master on the Craft Robo to do the mat with the words on. Then cut out the words and again and the circle, stuck it all together, mounted on card with silicon glue and finished with a George and Dottie image. This is one of two cards for some friends of ours that will celebrate their 70th Wedding Anniversary next Saturday.

Piglet Birthday Card

Piglet was cut out using the 'Pooh and Friends' Cricut cartridge, then he is mounted on some printed card and I stamped Happy Birthday above.

George 30th Card

This card uses George from the Rock N Roll collection, I cut him out and mounted him flat to the card. The 30 with mat was cut on the craft robo, template from the UK scrappers site. The I used jewels to decorate and add a bit of bling. Very simple but I think quite effective. The 30 is put on in two layers using silicone glue to add dimension.

Carft Robo 21st Card

This is a card I cut out on the craft robo, the template for the 21st was from the CD by Just cutters and the dog template was one from the UK scrappers site.
I have raised the dog and the 21 up with silicon glue and put a black jewel and googly eyes on the dog. The dogs brown bits are mounted on 3d foam.

Another Lurcher done as a 'Relax' on your birthday card. This was an image I had that I printed out a few times and then decoupaged it. The papers came from the Paper Company.

Dotties Challenge Card 2

This is another card I did for the Sunday challenge from Dottie's World. This time I cut the image of Dottie out using a craft knife, she was already coloured. I then mounted some acetate, with iridescent flowers on it, onto card using white eyelets. The tag I made myself on the PC and cut out and coloured using glitter pens. Then I put some ribbon through it and mounted onto the card.

Dotties Challenge Card 1

This card was made for the Sunday Challenge from Dottie's world. I used the craft robo to cut the words down the side of the card, then I embossed the letters with glittered red embossing powder. The Image was printed onto card then cut out using tag template on craft robo, I slightly enlarged to template to cut the mat, then cut out the joined hearts again on the robo. I used some heart ribbon in the tag and finished with a glittered heart. I like the card but I am not very happy with how the embossing on the letters turned out, but I suppose that's how we learn

Stiggys Card (The Real Stig!)

This card was done for my friends mums birthday. She loves lurchers and greyhounds and as I have a lurcher with no brain but a very big heart, I used this photo if him relaxing to decoupage and then mount on the card. I used the PC to print the message on the front.

My dogs name is Stig, the kids named him Stig after the Book 'Stig of the dump' But our Stig was known as 'Stig that was Dumped!' as he was abandoned when he was 5 months old. He is now 6years old and is also known as long legs no brain!

Anniversary Card

This was a quick card made for my friends parents on there wedding anniversary. I used the coloured image of George and Dottie, cut out and mounted with 3d foam. Then matted and layered the words and put onto light pink card, quick and simple.

80th Birthday Card

This was for my friends 80th Birthday, I used the Craft Robo to cut out the words down the side, the a piece of actetate with flowers printed on it was matted using eyelets to hold into place. Then I stamped a cat with flowers, used flower soft to add deminsion and matted it into place.

Plane Birthday Card

This was a card I made for my friends dad who is into Planes. The front of the card I used an image, then coloured it and chalked around it to look like clouds and sky. Inside the card I used my craft robo to cut cut a template of a pop up plane, then just matted and layered it on white and blue. I then stuck a verse in to finish it.

Eds Birthday Card

This card was done for my Brother-in-law in who likes to play the guiter and I am always teasing him about getting older and holding on to the past. The image used was one of the coloured ones again from George and Dottie and I added gold stars for effect. As I said these have been a life saver as they cards turn out so good but they are quick and easy to make when time is short
