A Baby and a Droid (Card)

I had a request for a baby card, sex of baby not known, which makes it difficult to come up with a colour scheme to use, the last one I did for the same lady I did in lemon so my choice this time was lavender.
I used a Nellie Snellen pontura card from which I cut the front and layered it onto the lavender card, white, lavender and finally the white card base.
The welcome banner is a Joy Crafts Die, the little flowers are from the mini EK Success Retro Flower Punch.

The next card request was for either a Star Wars or Ninja theme, I went for Star Wars and found an R2D2 colouring image on the internet which I coloured with my copics, I added some balloons cut with a free die that came with a craft magazine, the background is the Couture Creations Entangle embossing folder.

I started by cutting a Georgia die cut out and using it as a stencil and sponging shaded lilac distress ink around the edges of the background, then added that same stencil piece to the background and added a SW Bow and SW Orange Blossom leaves and flowers from the Cheery Lynn Chrysanthemum.

The Allietare quilt is now all quilted, which I did on my Janome 7700 and is finally finished.
It was my very first Bonnie Hunter Mystery quilt and probably wont be my last, I enjoyed the process that much.

February cards.

I managed to make quite a few cards in February, there were a number of family birthdays, and Kaaren needed quite a few cards made for a craft show she was attending this weekend in Sydney.

The first one below was for my sisters 60th Birthday.

The dies I used were the Marianne Creatables Star XL and  Anja's Vintage Frame.
Flowers were made from the Cheery Lynn Gardenia Strip

This was a card for my youngest brother, I created the background with some distress inks and water
The bird is from Tim Holtz Crazy Birds stamp Set.
Happy Birthday is Spellbinders Sentiments 3

For this very simple card I have used the feather stencil from the Bo Bunny Whimsy Stencil set, stenciling the feathers with ink.
I used one of the dies from the SW Australian Background to emboss the rectangle, the Happy Birthday is Spellbinders Sentiments 3.
A few random placed dots with Liquid pearls and some crystal adhesive gemstones coloured black with a marker.

This time I used molding paste on black card with the Bo Bunny feather stencil then added some glittery colour, and hand cut them out.
Sue Wilson Australian Background pieces also used.

I created the background on this card with the Bo Bunny Whimsy Stencil set, I first inked it with one pink ink rotated the stencil then added another pink ink.
