May's Workshop With Eileen

Another very informative & fun workshop with the delightful Eileen yesterday, such a lovely bunch of ladies attend each month I’m surprised we stop laughing long enough to produce anything, below are the makes from the class.  I can’t believe there is anyone who doesn’t know Eileen's blog but just in case you can find her at;

Cards are a mixture of PanPastle & distress ink techniques, flower stamps are by Sheena Douglass, feather stamp is by Clarity

Anniversary Card

I made this card for my daughter Caz & Husband Daemon, for their 9 wedding anniversary on the 22nd.  I love the sentiment & had seen the bunnies in the moon on the clarity show.  I needed to give them the card early as I’m off to Cowden on Wednesday & Thursday for Barbara’s Kent workshop, really looking forward it.  I’m babysitting on Friday night, looking forward to film night & pizza with the children, while Caz & Dae can go out to celebrate.

I stamped the bunnies before masking them off, used a brayer to create the background, before tearing it to the size,  added a large heart I’d cut out, this is supposed to represent clouds, (artistic licence), then a lovely sentiment also torn & layered it up to keep the theme going & that’s that.

Clarity Stamps; Bunnies, tree and birds
Sentiment Stamp; Sheena Douglas
Distress inks: Tim Holtz
Bits n pieces from my stash
I really enjoyed making this card, hope you like it & thanks for looking.

Quick Card

Quick card today, this is for my nephew, I was going to enter it to this month’s clarity challenge but I wasn’t happy with the clouds so it’s back to the drawing board.  I’m off to Cowden for a couple of days later this month so hope to get my brayer under control! Lol   

All stamps and sentiment from Clarity

Pretty Car Card

I made this quick card is for my son’s girlfriend, he insisted it showed a car as she has just got a new blue one, so to pretty it up I used a mask and little girl holding a balloon.  

I cut my normal white linen base card to size and holding the mask in place used PanPastles to make the background.  Stamped the car on another piece of card for the middle then used sticky fixers to give the little girl some height. 

White base card is a square Craftwork 148x148 card
Stamps;  Clarity; Vintage Car; LOTV; Girl with Balloon
PanPastles: Red Tint
Bits n pieces from my stash
Thanks for looking.

2 More Children's Cards

A couple of really quick children’s cards to post; I used dog toppers for these, not sure where I got them, it was very much a back of the draw find, but they are bright and colourful suitable for 2 year olds birthdays. 


I used Clarity letterbox set and balloons
Very easy cards, but its the thought that counts, lol x
