in space

good evening everyone hoe are we all??? well over the past few weeks ive been busy with DT work and making cards and stationary for the craft stall im doing next saturday.
my nanan bought me some embellishments the other day so this is a card i made with them.

Posted by Picasa

to make this card i stuck black card (from stash) on to my card then added white glitter to make it look like stars in the sky.
i then added the embellishments with the sentiment 'ready to launch'

this is a quick and easy card but i think its really effective for a lil boy who likes space.

Gothic Blessing

well i havebeen busy all week making cards for my craft stall at end of month but still not got round to putting them on laptop lol so here is a card i did for an order for a Gothic blessing

this was a hard one for me with it been a 'gothic blessing' and not actully having a clue what to do lol. the lady that asked for it said she liked a previous card id done using the Basque and feathers so after spending probably a full week deciding how i could turn that in to a blessing card this is what i came up with:

The black a4 card with silver detail was from a local market stall but actually got it of the lovely lindyloo as she had a spare lol.

i then used the Basque template and decided to turn it in to a wedding dress by adding red and black paper at the top and used a burgundy ribbon and rouched it down the front to make part of the dress (saw this technique on C&C) i then found some black lace in my stash so used that and folded it in strips to make the bottom of the dress. i then added red and white jems for added detail.

The mans suit was from a template borrowed off a friend i used the same red and black paper for the shirt and black card for the jacket and trousers i then cut a triangle out of the burgundy ribbon to put in the 'pocket' and added two gems for detail

i then placed both the dress and suit on a bunch of red feathers and added the sentiment 'wishing you a lifetime of happiness together' with a little added extra of a pair of handcuffs which i printed off and cut out then added actual chain to join them together.

DT Card For Daisy Doodles

well a little bit late at posting today as ive spent the day nursing my hangover lol. i know its self inflicted but hoping someone out there feels sorry for me :)

The stamp i used is 'wedded bliss' amd is availabel in our store http://daisysdigidoodles.com/store/

 I hope you all like wheat i put together for you and fingers crossed its not too blingy lol

I made the card in to a side stepper card as i got the hougie board for my birthday so couldn't wait to try it out and was pretty impressed with it.
I decided on the theme of grey and gold i coloured the image using promarkers and yellow papermate glitter glue for the dress and veil.
I used gold and grey card for the background then then had a go at making the paper roses with bits of left over grey/gold card( from my stash) adding orange gems to the centre of the roses for a bit of bling. the peel offs are also from my own stash.
I then decided at the last minuet to add the sequins to the top and bottom of the image whilst hoping it wasn't too much lol.
