I do scrap!

I do scrap! This is Genny and her chicken. Bazzill cardstock, Chatterbox papers some chipboard letters and a hybrid flower printed off from a digi kit. The chicken is called ‘Coralie’!!!

Trifold Card

This is a trifold card! The template was available at that time over at Splitcoaststampers. I used some K & Co papers, various stamps and punches. Once I got the folds right – realising that the 12″ piece of cardstock was not quite 12″ a bit later on in the game, it worked a treat and is really quite fun to do. I stamped the butterfly onto the card first and then stamped it again in blue chalk pad, cut it out and raised it up with silicone glue rather than using foam pads.

Genny is also quite crafty, and this is a card made by her, I had previously stamped the roses, she being rather arty herself drew the stems and petals.
Finally, a birthday card, stamped and coloured in using just some fine tips a sentiment punched out and then put on a scalloped oval as well, just to add a bit of edging, scalloped the white card too, just for fun!

I am taking a break from Stampin’ Up! to concentrate on our son who is finding it difficult at the moment re schooling due to his autistic traits.  I will be back, once things are settled and will hold all Sarah’s He{Arts} so please don’t think all is lost 🙂  In the words of Arnie, I will be back!

I’m back.  Thank you to everyone who asked how things were going.  Safe to say that the ASD child is in an environment now that is getting him on track and now I have lost a lot of worries (and stress) I am glad to be back to do something I enjoy.  Crafting with great products (and getting the demo discount!).

The strangest things happen

So, I took the painkillers last night – which are not only good for the op I had last week but are doing my back a treat – and woke up at around 1.30am. Couldn’t get back to sleep so started to make a card! Having a supply of 12×12 cardstock is great for cardmaking as I have been chopping up to make 6″ x 6″ square cards (and having the Crafters Companion Ultimate Pro is good for making the accompanying envelopes). So, with my piece of duly chopped cardstock, I used some of the 6×6 papers from a K & Co pad – the butterfly sheet and a striped sheet. Then, using some odds, stamped a piece of blue, just haphazardly to create a background. Trimmed that down and corner edged it.

Next, used a flowery stamp just stamped a couple of times as I created a medallion effect. Coloured it in using my Promarkers and then had to get the stickles out for a bit of blingish effect! Some more stamping and then a punching a scallop oval and large oval punches. Then out with the glue! Sometime during the above I did actually go back to bed and finished the card off this morning 🙂

The Joy!

I have managed this week to fit in with all the other stuff that happens in my daily life, to make two cards. The first is for the partner at the firm of solicitors I work for who retires soon (my apologies if a bit blurry I took the pic in a hurry).

Playing with punches to add a nice accent to the card and also finishing off with some organza ribbon. I even got to use some of my old papers supplies, papers from K&Co;’s Daisy pad.

My second card is for Monday, a work colleague’s birthday. I must have a thing about punches at the moment as can’t get enough of making holes and shapes with them. A simple card with a happy birthday stamp and a bobbly flower! Some prima flowers and gems finish it off (papers from Chatterbox).
