Mothers day card

This is quite a cute Mothers Day card made using the stamp set Sweet Laughter. My girl Guides are going to have a go at making this tonight for one of their badges.

Well this will be my last post for about 10 days as I head away to StampinUp convention in the morning. Will be back end of next week.

This card I made using a colour that is not one of my favourite yellow shades.I cased this card from Carol Longacre changing shades of colour of the yellow. I have used some dsp from the sale-a-bration pack.
This card can be a Mothers Day card or a birthday card.

mothers day card

I haven't had much time lately to craft or blog. I am off to the StampinUp conference on the Gold Coast next week so their is quite a bit to do in preparation before we go. My husband is joining me after the conference so we can tiki tour around.My swaps are almost completed.
Anyway today I had some time to craft and have been preparing for upcoming classes next week, with the theme of Mothers day.
I got the idea for this card from Libby Dyson but have used the stamp set Mixed Bunch which is on th retiring list. I liked the way she used Gorgeous Grunge stamp set on this card. Have used the in- colours Mossy Meadow, Hello Honey and Lost Lagoon.

Another Bokeh technique card.

Love this technique, Bokeh. Taught it at my classes last month. Each card looked quite different depending on how dark you did the sponging of the colours and how heavy handed you were with the white craft ink for the circles.
The butterfly has vellum behind it that has been coloured with the blendies.
