Cards for boys

Having three young sons and lots of their friends in our lives, is always the challenge with card making, but I think I had some success with my recent creations.




Quirky !

The first time I used my new rubber necker stamps. I love the paper piecing and of course the hours I lose when I colour with my copics.



Stampin' Up! Lattice die

I love this lattice die that SU sell, so versatile and lovely in pastels as well as in stronger tones - black and pink.

Raised doily card

My adorable WMS doily stamps - embossed and die cut.

Punch art baby card

I really enjoyed making this card, using my Stampin' Up! punches, Priceless stamp (retired) and a piece of vellum. A lovely card - if I say so myself :-)

March Angry Birds Card

I saw this card online, beautifully designed by a fellow SU demonstrator, Maria Cameron. Angry birds is such a big deal in my house, I loved this card, my kids adored this card. Thank you to Maria. I tried to leave a comment on her blog, but somehow it wouldn't work :-( I designed a cheat-sheet to make reproducing this card a little easier.

March card - spring inspired
