The never ending card.

I have always loved this oldie, but a goodie...There are plenty of tutorials out there...just google Never ending card.

Here are a few pictures of two I have made recently, using some retired DSP's...
And where I ran out of the right pattern I stamped my own...USE IT ALL UP, I say, so I can buy more...lol...

These ones are 6" by 6", making the square in the middles 3" by 3"...which is pretty small to play with... AND I made the envelopes out of the same DSP to match the card, have fun looking.

FRONT

Inside first turn, space for your sentiment

Decorative third fold

AND the back, with a little final HB with flowers.

FRONT, for the mummy's

Inside first fold, the space to write...

The second fold around with a couple of hearts, maybe I need to add BLING!

AND the BACK, my favourite part a little sneaky message. love it.
CARD RECIPE:
  • 1 of 6 x 12 plain cardstock for base, cut into halves twice and scored at 1.5" on two opposite sides.
  • 1 of 12 x 12 DSP for envelope cut to 9.5" x 9.5"
  • the scraps left from envelope, cut into strips to match cards spaces.
  • and half an A4 whisper white card for stampin images and decorations...or there abouts...

Having fun inside on a sunny day, oops sorry garden...

Blessed Easter

Easter cards do you send them? To family and your friends?

Here are a few that I have made.

There are lots of techniques you could play with.

The Blessed Easter stamp is so lovely. Available in my shop until the end of June. It comes as a wood mount only but if you have got the gear you can make it clear mount.




Having fun inside on a rainy day...

More baby cards...

I love the way this technique has turned out, in different shapes and randomly matching colours. I think they worked.

By adding a small embellishment to the side adding that little extra dimension...



Using the same random technique I chose colours out of my scrap box and added same colour ink as the card base. I think they worked out lovely too.




and a couple more using the same Baby We've Grown stamp set...


sorry it's a bit blurry, but you get the ideas...

I have had fun, have you???

I am so in awe of Bermuda Bay, as you can see with this next card. 
AND the YOU'RE LOVELY stamp from the Sale A Bration catalogue.


I love this colour...

I also stamped a little of the YOU'RE LOVELY stamp set onto the outside of the envelope. 
Just that little added touch... hint: make sure your stamp is perfectly clean...



I have used a different colour, yay...Tangerine Tango...nice bright on white. Again, I used the YOU'RE LOVELY stamp set onto the outside of the envelope. I love the little extra twine around the white ribbon..."just the little things" ...and matching candy dot.
