Birthday Wishes

Hi Bloggers.

I had a great workshop at That's Really Crafty yesterday. My next workshop there is on September 7th - click on the Workshop page in the above menu to see the details.

Here's today's card made from one or the Hobby House Kits that I have on sale on my website -

Virtually everything I've used is from The Hobby House Wee Hopeful Card Making Kit. The images are die cut and so are the mats. I've used the waste from the mat on the outside and cut it using Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics B with the background paper being cut using Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics A.

I've inked around the edges of the image die cut, the flowers and the sentiment with Stonewashed Adirondack Dye Ink using a Smoothie.

I've used Sue Wilson's Delicate Fronds for the leaves cut from Deep Blue Card.

 There's loads of embellishments in the kit including this lovely pearl trim.

If you need a quick card, I highly recommend one of these kits. I have a couple more designs in stock - you can see them here.

Thanks for stopping by.

Ask for a free card (in the order comments box at checkout) when you order in August!

  3. I like the ideas here and how the card has been assembled but cutie stamps are not really my thing.

  4. Hi Julia

    This is such a cute little image and the card is beautifully put together. I love the choice of papers used. If I mix papers like that I always end up in a mess! :( You are a natural! :)

  25. Hi Julia

    Those Hobby Houe images are so cute. I have a stamp of one of the girls I love to colour. This card is very sweet, I love the blue colour and it's good to see dies used with kits as it's something a lot of people have laying around their craft rooms.

    Hugs, T x
