So Monday morning I woke up to a 12 year old!! How I have no idea, I think I blinked and his childhood was over. He is mad on computer games, especially the switch, mainly as a result of Covid I fear as this was a way to play with his friends. But we do also play quite alot as a family. He is at quite an awkward age but I do think I nailed his card
It is Tuesday so time for new challenge over at Polkadoodles Digi Choosday Challenge Blog. Don't forget to take advantage of todays discount code. You can find all the details on the challenge.
The design teams brief was to make a Mother's Day card which featured a wrap around band and an image from the Darling Bud Collection.
This meant I got to colour my snowdrop darling bud which I have not coloured up in so long
I have been asked to make my first card for my friends mum's 60th. The only specification was it had to say 60 and mum on it at some point

I used scan n cut canvas to create my word card and a separate Mum to create the front panel
I stamped and coloured the images and fussy cut these out.
A piece of acatate was secured behind the heart in the separate mum panel.
The images were glued on, and the panel decorated with sequins and nuvo drops
60 confetti was placed inside the heart

Card Making Tutorial
I begun by stamping my images, using post it notes to mask them and create my scene. I coloured these using alcohol markers
A piece of red card was folded into a gate fold card base
I cut 2 white panels and heat embossed in white the sentiment and diamond stamp at random positions. These were coloured in the distress oxide and adhered to the front of the card base
A silver and a red circle were cut and this was adhered onto the image.
This was adhered onto one side of the gate fold
The card was finished with sequins, clear drops and nuvo drops
Glossy accents were placed in the middle of the flowers

The Inspiration for this card begun to grow when I came across the ribbon on eBay on a late night shopping experience. I purchased the ribbon and then spent along time searching for the perfect stamp set to match it with. I eventually decided on the Hello Bluebird Halloween set featuring Tabitha, it has a girl, a cat, some bags, a witch hat and some potions and spell books. It looked perfect. I ordered it from America and as her birthday drew closer it still hadn't arrived. Then I discovered the Wizardly Magic from the Little Dudes Collection at Polkadoodles and my mind was made. This was just perfect for what I had in mind.
I always struggle when it comes to male cards, the inspiration just does not flow like it does with female cards. So when Creative Stamping magazine came with a free set of Hunkydory, For the Love of Stamps The Great Outdoors stamp set, earlier in the year I knew that I would save them for this occasion.
I wanted to create a card where I could show off the vast majority of the Daisy Mae Faraway Collection. I wanted a woodland scene but all the folds I tried just looked swaped with the size of the toadstool and the tree stump house. But the tent stepper allows the little scene to play out perfectly
This is a super easy card to make. I used the Daisy Mae Design Hot Air Ballon Stamp. This was one of my bargains from last week
I have had this gorgeous cloud paper for a little while now and feel this has given it the justice it deserves. It was a free download paper and Mr Printables Mr Printables Website is well worth a look, there are a lot of lovely prints.
I have known what I wanted to do with this stamp since the moment I ordered it. It is not often that happens for me, but I knew the moment I saw the stamp flash up on my facebook news feed early one morning that I just had to have it.
It is the 75th Anniversary of VE Day and our village had a street party and entertainment planned. The bank holiday had been changed from the Monday to the Friday to commemorate the day. But Coronavirus put an end to our planned celebrations with lockdown been on the cards instead.
So our VE day bank holiday consisted of decorating the house in home made bunting and an afternoon tea of dairy free scones (child with an allergy) which were an absolute disaster. I actually had to ask the children not to use them as weapons as they would do some serious damage.
A super cute and easy fun fold card, This has a teachers theme but can be adapted to whatever you wish

You Will Need
1 piece of card stock 11 3/4 Inch x 5 1/2 Inch
2 panels of patterned paper 1 1/2 inch x 5 Inch
1 piece of plain paper 5 Inch x 3.5 Inch
1 piece of patterned paper 5 Inch x 3.5 Inch
Glue/ double sided tape
Embellishments of your choice
Torn Edge Nesting Dies
A class Act Stamp and Die set by Clearly Besotted
Hunkydory Score Board
Spectrum Noir Tri-blend Markers
Papermania Embossing powder (In Superfine Silver)
Begin by cutting your card stock to 11 3/4 Inch by 5 1/2 Inch
Score at 2, 4, 8, and 10 Inch along the length
Place a tiny mark at 6 Inch on both edges and using your ruler score from the middle point of the middle column to the corner of the first score mark (see picture below)
Trim 1/4 off the 1st panel
Cut 2 panels 1.5 Inch by 5 Inch and stick these to the outer columns with the glue of your choice
In order to cut the 8 triangles, first cut a piece of plain paper stock to 5 Inch by 3 1/2 Inch. Mark this at 1 3/4 Inch on the short side and 2.5 Inch on the long side. Draw a diamond
Cut the diamond out and keep the 4 triangles from the edges. Next cut the diamond into quarters.
Stick these to the triangle panels on the card
Cut another piece of patterned paper 5 Inch by 3 1/2 inch and mark in the same way as you did with the plain paper. Cut down the diamond and apply to the front panel
Then embellish however you wish. I used the big shot to die cut 2 different sized torn edge rectangles.
I stuck one vertically
I stamped, coloured and die cu an unbranded teachers set I had and used these on the front panel. I then heat embossed the 2nd torn edge rectangle horizontally with the sentiment 'teacher you are a class act.
This card can be adapted to what ever you have in your stash and is super quick to make but a real eye catcher. Hope you have as much fun making it as I did creating it
