Don't know where the time went!

The last three and a half weeks have just flown by - been to London for a week and then my sister has been staying for two weeks.  Last Saturday she and I visited North Yorkshire and had dinner with 29 men!.......But that's another story.....LOL!
So.....nothing happening in my craftroom lately.
The photos are of a box I made for my son to give to his Dad for Father's Day. It was covered with metal and decorated using ten second studio tools, some cardstock letters, my cuttlebug and black acrylic paint.
Bye for now - hope to post again very soon X

Texture for Tuesday Taggers

The theme this week on Tuesday Taggers is texture and a prize is being offered by Tanda Stamps.  I made some paper flowers using the fab Paperartsy flower die.  They were sprayed with glimmer mist, inked and scrunched, then I put some brads in the middle.

Background paper is Crafty Individuals and all cardstock is by Stampin Up. The edge is done using a Martha Stewart punch.

Sentiment is by Stampington , Nestability label and American Crafts ribbon.

Thanks for looking X

June already!  I can't believe where this year is going.

 Here are three more cards I have made for my friend's order.   They are more simple than the ones in my last post and this time all the main images are by Crafty Individuals.

Card No 1:

The stamps in the background on this card are by 7Gypsies.  The yummy ribbon is by Stampin' Up.
The crackle background is also by Crafty Individuals, stamped with Old Paper distress ink.

Card No 2:

This was really simple - Background inked with Spun Sugar and Victorian Velvet distress inks, main image stamped in Vintage photo, swirls etc stamped with Victorian Velvet, then a brad and some lace added.

Card No 3:

Inks used are Dusty Concorde and Milled Lavender, sprayed with Periwinkle glimmer mist.  The ribbon is American Crafts and the gems are by Kaiser.

Thanks for looking.  Have a great day - the sun looks like it is going to shine.  Yaaaaay! X
