Happy Birthday to the man who supports my crazy hobbies!

Happy Birthday to the man who supports my crazy hobbies!

Well it’s the other half’s birthday and I thought I had better make him a card as it’s his job paying for all my stash!

My original intention was to CASE the star card on page 38 of the Occassions catty, but that quickly spiralled out of control. I think it was the diagonal cuts, I like straight lines, but tilted lines even if they are straight still look wrong to me!! And it needed some shine. (Yes I know it’s a blokes card, but he is my experimental Guinea pig!) And after the shine it needed something else, so then out came the gold twine. And I love it!

Hope the birthday boy will too!

What did you create today?

This is a card I made from a design that we got at OnStage in Brussels last year. It was supposed to go in the DipBag on Monday but tired mummy brain (thank you gastro bug!) made me forget.

I masked the arrowhead stamps from “You’re So Lovely” to line up with the ‘For you’ stamp in that set, works a treat! Hope my big brother enjoys it, even if it will be late!

What have you made today?

As a part of the #imbringingbirtdaysback movement, I thought it would be a good idea to finally put together this kit I got last year.

Now I must let you in on a little secret, I sometimes struggle with kits. Yes, I know they are supposed to make things easy, but I find myself only ever making what is in the instructions and this kit just cried out for going off the rules and to be personalised. And I struggled! I would pull it out, look at it and come up blank then put it away again. BUT IT NEEDED TO BE DONE! So I finally got over my nerves and did it! 

Is it perfect? No, I had some 10yr old help, he sponged, stickered AND stamped! But it’s done! I have yet to stick on the glitter and sequins, but the bulk of it is finished. 

Am I pleased with it? Yes! And that is the most important thing!

Laying it all out trying to figure out what goes where.


  

Finished with the stamping, now to glitter and sequin it!

 

One thing I did was use all the paper bits, as the banners didn’t work too well with the heart and star shapes I used my snips to cut them in half and then stick them on the shape so they looked normal. 

Now to start filling it in and make some birthday cards (Big Bro is first as his will need to go in the Dip Bag on Monday).

And they are finished! Now to add names.
