Geometrical for a Man

Hello there,
I hope you had a lovely Bank Holiday weekend, we went to London for the day on Saturday visiting the Natural History museum, M&M world (two places which couldn't be more different!) and out for tea too. It was a lovely day, the weather was fab (cool but not too cool, and most importantly not wet ;-)) and the company perfect.
But, back to reality and school runs today, boo! and cards, yay! Ha ha! I have a card we made at class last weeks class using my new set; Geometrical. I am always drawn to use red and blue for men's cards and this one was no different! I might just try it in a different colour way later this week.... but for now here it is in Midnight Muse and Real Red with a dash of Smoky Slate....
 ....and silver glimmer because Men like sparkle too right? 
This little star is a part of the Merry Minis punch pack and is still available, and the new matching triangle punch is from the Spring/Summer catalogue. 
Please see the end of each post for all links to products used. 
 This cool sentiment is included in the set, I love the font and I think you could use this sentiment for a lot of things. Perhaps passing a test, general congratulations, promotion as well as the obvious birthday wishes :-)
OK, that's today's card for you, I am doing washing today and tidying my craft room (again) lol
Thanks for looking today,

Secret Garden Banner Card

Hello!
Get me, I really am back to blogging! :-)))
Today's card uses the lovely stamp set Secret Garden which is in the main catalogue. I think we all get excited and carried away with the new stuff available all the time but we mustn't forget the main catalogue and all the many lovely stamp sets in there too, I know I certainly do this ;-)
So, I grabbed Secret Garden off the shelf, stamped a  few flowers and wiggled things around to make this little card...
 This pretty sentiment is from Petit Pairs
 and finally the flowers, I layered the pool party daisy with 2 foam pads, the lower strawberry slush flower with one pad and the bottom flower is glued down for plenty of dimension, With texture from the linen thread and leaves and dazzling details in the flower centres
OK, that's me done for today, enjoy the rest of your Easter Monday and hopefully you'll get inky :-)
Thanks for visiting today,

Peachy Keen with Perfect Couple

Hello there,
I'm back again today with this little card I made at a class a couple of weeks ago, I really do love this "Perfect Couple" stamp set and really wanted to use it in class. Doesn't it look fresh in this colour combo of Strawberry Slush and Basic Grey with a dash of both black and silver?
 I saw this card by Amy O'Neill and was totally inspired by the layout and the film framelit to make this version...
 and a side view 
TOP TIP: I adhered the vellum with glue under the image and frame and secured the top with the twine
OK, that's all from me for today, I'm off now to find where that lil' bunny has hidden all the chocolate! ;-)

Easter Blossoms

Hi there,
I'm back, as promised! I have a little card today which actually uses a retired Easter stamp set as I had a request to make an Easter card at class but unfortunately I hadn't got the new Easter stamp set in time (Eggstra Spectacular) so I pulled this out of my retired box and had a play. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed colouring this set ;-)
I used a colour combo of Smoky Slate and Rose Red to make this card...
 the branch was stamped using staz on and I coloured the flowers using my blender pen
 adding a seam binding bow and an Easter sentiment to finish
Short and sweet today as we are off out for the day!
Thanks for looking :-)
