The rest of today's cardmaking

I have loved being outside crafting in this beautiful weather, I had to sit under the umbrella as the sun was so strong that I would have fried if I'd sat out in it. Anyway these cards still need some embellishments but I thought you may like to see the cards just using the printed page. If you needed some quick cards these would do the job but wouldn't look like they are so easy to do.

These cards are either A5 or 6inch square, the square ones are designed to be a lot bigger but I opted to print two pages on an A4 sheet thus reducing the size down so I could make the smaller square instead of the 8 inch, hope you like them.

Craft U Print Designs

I needed a new baby card so went over for a look on Crafts U Print, well I found the design I wanted but a few others also fell into the basket, you know the way that happens.

I printed some off yesterday and had a little play while I was sitting soaking up the sun in the garden, I had seen some of the fifties style ladies on a forum so bought a few of those and here they are, they are printed onto matte photo paper and they look like real fabric. I'm quite pleased as I kow where these will be going very soon.

The baby cards are so easy to make up and I think they are quite pretty.

I'll be back tomorrow with another couple I'm in the process of making.

Jem's Designs at CD Sunday with hats

Over on CD Sunday this week we have a great sponsor, Jem's Designs have agreed to give a cd of the winners choice away so what better reason could there be to join in, the team were give the cd Hat Box Confections to play with and to be honest I wasn't going to use this design for my card but as I'd just bought the lush corner dies I cut them out in the lilac card and the whole thing just went from there.
This is an 8 inch card and I sent it to a friend who was 60 this time so in the end I put a 60 in the top right corner but I had already taken my picture so you'll just have to imagine it.
So what did I use this time;
 Design from Jem's cd Hat Box Confections
Lilac card is Centura Pearl
The dies behind the topper are Decorative Blossom corner from Heartfelt Creations. You have to have a lot of patience with these dies as they don't cut very easily.
The flowers are also Heartfelt Creations and are called Delicate Asters.
Finally finished the whole thing off with some flat back pearls which came free with my carousel from C&C.
Hope you can come over and join us and check out my team mates blogs, they have done some stunning things.
