Ruby Wedding

Hi everyone hope your all having a good week. I have been busy working on a Ruby Wedding card that I was commisioned to make. I have used the Elusive Image Harlequin Rose stamp plate. I just love this rose design. I have mixed my own embossing powder. It is a mixture of gold, red and black. It looks much better in real life. I'm afraid my photographic skills let me down. I coloured it with Derwent coloursoft pencils and blended with Sansodor. I stamped on pearl white card. The pictures inside were done on my craft studio. I also added a 40th Happy Anniversary on the front of the card at the bottom. I only remembered when I had already taken the photo.

I have been having a playday today, thought I would use some of my Crafty Individual stamps.

I have used some backing paper I had and changed the colour with Distress inks. I also over stamped with some new stamps from Dimension Fourth a new swirl set. On one card I added the flowers I coloured it to match and over stamped it and added a bit of Rock Candy distress stickles. The second card I added a bit of gold leaf onto the flowers. It doesn't show very well in the photo. Also thought I would add some tulle for a change from the other one.

Hi, have been off on holiday from work this week. Only stayed at home to chill and have a rest.It didn't start off too well as I had to rush hubby to hospital on the first day. They did tests gave him painkillers and fluids then let him home. He's feeling alot better but very tired.

He usually helps me at home so I have had to do all the dreaded housework all week. Also my little grandaughter has been round everyday wanting Nanna to play with Barbie and crawl about on the floor with Barbie's car. I was planning to get some serious crafting in but not manged it. I have a few things to show you.

Every year I get asked to make a dozen ladies golf cards. They all have to be different as they are for the same person. This is my 3rd year of making them. This year I couldn't really find my mojo and struggled with them, but here are a few of them.

I also have made a few cards for my friends on the internet. The last one I made this week which was for Dads Birthday. I decided to use some of my Sheena Douglas stamps. This is the first time I have used this set and struggled abit making the sand. I just hope Dad will like it, it's his birthday next week.
