Simple New Baby Card with Balloons

July 13th 2013

It seems there are a lot of new babies on the way. Here’s a simple new baby card I made.

I used some new gel stamps that I picked up from Paperchase for the spotty borders.

I coloured the stamps with some stamping pens that I found in TKMaxx. You can get some good craft bargains from there. I also used the spotty border stamp to create the pattern on the box. For the balloons I just cut out the shapes and mounted them with adhesive squares for some relief. The strings are stamped on using the same set of gel stamps. The congratulations lettering this time is from a set of stickers from HobbyCraft.

Woven Paper Birthday Cards

July 13th 2013

I had lots of birthday cards to make in July and I was inspired by my sister-in-law’s profession in fabric and weaving to create this set of woven paper cards.

The most tricky thing was keeping the paper together whilst weaving it. In the end the best thing seemed to be to stick one end to a strip of card and then once secured onto the backing trim the edges. It did get a bit messy with the glue in some places. As usual the lettering was done with one of my stamp sets.
For the blocks I found a weave pattern via pinterest but here’s the original site Weave Pattern from Not Only Quilts
