Fun Penguins

I really like using the sets from DigiStamp Boutique where you can build up your own 'picture' from little images.  These are two cards I made from the fun penguins set that was released in July.

Days 19 and 20 of the daily marker challenge Sept 2017.

Precious Bundle

I thought I'd make a baby card for day 18 of the daily marker challenge Sept 2017.  A DigiStamp Boutique set that was released last year (or the year before?)

New Baby

I know a couple of people 'expecting' soon(ish) and so thought I'd best make a new baby card or two (expect more cards in the coming weeks!) This one uses a DigiStamp Boutique image.

Get well soon

Another type of card that it is good to have in stock is a 'get well soon' one.  I used my last and so had to make another. The image is from DigiStamp Boutique.

Monster Batch of Christmas Cards!

I bought a pack of Papermania Christmas papers from the Works in July thinking they were only papers.  When I got them home it was a set of papers, diecuts and decoupage sheets. I don't really 'do' decoupage any more (used to 10 years or more ago).  It was a toss up between giving the pack away, letting it sit unused or making up the cards....
I started making up the cards, thinking they would be good quick simple cards that I could sell at Bentley Heath Country Market nearer December.  But knowing me, a card is never simple and I ended up adding little bits and bobs....






After making 16 cards I thought it was time to have a break (it took a few days to make this lot).  The other die cuts in the pack are still sat in a drawer.  Might make some present tags with them.... (maybe next year if not this year!)

Christmas Banner Cards

In July DigiStamp Boutique released a Family Christmas Banner set of images.  I made three cards- one with each image.  Aren't they cute?  I think my favourite are the teddies....  what's yours?


Days 7, 8 and 9 of the Daily Marker challenge September 2017!

Initial Cards

A lot of the customers at Bentley Heath Country Market are quite partial to 'initial cards' (ie cards which feature the initial of the recipient).  We had a producer who used to draw them but she sadly left to do bigger and better things at the start of the year.
I was asked at the beginning of the month to make two cards- one 'I' for a little girl who likes prams and one 'M' for a little boy who likes tractors.  I don't often draw by hand myself (usually use stamps or digi stamps), but I was up for the challenge.

Day five and six of the Daily Marker challenge for September 2017!

With Sympathy

I have shied away from making 'with sympathy' cards for years.  There have been occasions (of course) when perhaps I should have sent one, but I just couldn't put that sentiment on the card- it usually ended up being a 'thinking of you' or 'best wishes'/'with love' card.
Recently someone suggested making these cards at random times and having a few in stock- that way you don't have to make them when you are mourning the loss of someone.  I thought I would give it a go. This is a simple card with brush stroke lettering (Digi Stamp Boutique) and handmade flowers.

Hugs

I know someone who likes to send cards to her friends with the sentiment 'hugs' on the front.  I guess it is quite a good 'cover all bases' greeting.  I made these two cards using stamped images I found in my drawer...

Cute mice getting married?  What else can be better for a one-of-a-kind wedding card?

We Three Kings

I know everyone else did 'Christmas in July' to get them kick started with Christmas crafting... I'm a bit late but I printed off some images from a set I bought last year from DigiStamp Boutique but didn't get round to using.
 I love these sets as you can arrange the images how you like to make little 'scenes' :-)
