I made this card recently for a 30th birthday. Although the sweets cannot be eaten as they are stuck to the card with strong glue. The card also had to be doubled up so that it would stand because those jelly babies are quite heavy little things.
“I don’t think you’re ready for this jelly!”
For Girls: These simple cards were made with stamps with stamps for the lettering and some pretty Japanese washi paper. The hearts were cut with a heart shaped punch.
For Boys (or girls): I made these simple cards for some guys (always more difficult to make for I find). I made them with stamping for the lettering and a simple corner cut out design.
The other one I made with my corner punch tool (for the rounded edges) and some transfer lettering.
I made this cake for my parent’s birthdays (they are within a week of each other). Its decorated with mascarpone icing. I had some edible glitter, blackberries, raspberries and mini marshmallows for decoration. My 5 year old nephew wanted to help so I gave him the decorations to put on the cake and this is the result. I think it turned out beautifully and his grandparents loved it. :)
Its a three layered cake with raspberry and blackberry jam between the layers. The recipe came from one of the free magazines you can pick up from supermarkets although I forget which one. They usually have lovely baking ideas in them.
I discovered a new craft store near where I work and they sell loads of these scissors with different pattern blades! I couldn’t resist buying myself a pair. I also had an excuse to use them straight away on this card for my sister in law’s birthday.
It was my birthday this month and my family know me well. I got a good stock of crafting gifts. Some new gel stamps, a card puncher in the shape of a flower and a button factory which I’m very excited to make use of in my crafts. Also I got a ‘Raffy’ vinyl toy. These are fun do-It-yourself toys by kid robot. The sharpie pens are great for decorating them and theres a whole community out there doing it.
This is the second one I have been given. My first on is in the design phase and I’ll post about it when I’m done. But I have an inspiration board on my pinterest. (munny inspiration board)
A simple card design made with some left over wrapping paper and transfers for the lettering.
Here is my first post with something I have made. A card for my sister’s birthday in 2011. The gift is from a birthday transfer sheet and the Sister text from a set of family stickers from hobby craft.
