More Mini Wishes

While I had the stamps out from this card, it was so much fun I had to make some more.  This time I went with the presents instead of the balloons.

And decided the road need not be so steep!

Endless Birthday Flowers

Sometimes you need that extra special card for that extra special person.  What better than endless wishes!

The sentiments are embossed in Platinum - one of my favourites!

Here are the 5 views...

Cas(e)ing Cards

When I spotted the light and lovely card by Amber, I got itchy fingers to case her card! (Thank you Amber for the wonderful inspiration and tips!)

It will be a while before I can get my hands on the new Build-a-Flower : Primrose set that she used, so I dug in my stash to find a substitute. I decided on a flower from the Build-a-Flower : Anemone Coronaria set. I used the Uniko Birthday Wishes set. 




When I was making another, I didn't realise that my card was upside down! So I had to cut and thought that since it was no longer a one layer card, I might as well change it up a little. I mounted it on matching blue card stock.  




I think I still prefer the plain white.

Delicate Tags


I had some uncoloured Delicate Flowers from my previous card.  Decided to change up the colours and make it soft and light. I wanted to keep the background light so that it would not overpower the sweet tags, so I coloured some embossing paste with the same colours as the tags and flowers.



I seem to be into fussy cutting these days!

Peeping Flowers


I've still got so many NBUS items in my stash.  I'm trying to make a concerted effort in using new stuff. I bought these delightful Pinkfresh Studio tags last year and I'm only getting around to using them now.



I added some Tonic Nuvo Glitter Gloss to the centers.

Mixing Old & New

I don't like to part with my much loved older stamps. I think I have some that are over 20 years old! So I loved seeing the challenge at A Blog Named Hero with the theme of combining old with the new.

My NBUS Tulip stamp combined with the quite old Brushstrokes set. The frame is cut out of biscuit box card ... the South African boxes have a wonderful kraft effect on the inside! Bonus!

The Male Room Guest Designer

I am so happy to be guest designer at The Male Room for this fortnight's challenge.




With the difficult times we are going through across the globe, I think everyone needs some encouragement. My son started his new job 2 weeks before the lockdown and has had to work on his own from home since then.  Being on a computer screen all day by yourself without much support or interaction can be quite discouraging. And it's a long road ahead. So this card is for him.
