Pitter Patter

by Jennifer Swandells

I have only recently taken card making up again after a long spell of being ill.

I am just making any kind of cards that I can, to get me back into the 'swing' of things again. I have forgotten so much, but hopefully this will be the start of better things to come.

My first card is Baby Card which has dies by Sue Wilson - New Arrival - Stuffed Animals. I have used the Elephant, Giraffe, Lion and Pitter Patter.

The other stamp, I cannot remember where I got this one from, but I liked it to put onto the card.

The card is a 6 x 6 and I have used pink, white glitter and a multi coloured paper. I coloured in parts of the die cut animals to make them stand out a bit more.

(Please excuse my terminology, I have even forgotten half of the crafting terms, I will get better, honest). Jen x

Hi Jennifer how good to see you back again and I don't think it will take you long to get back into the swing of things.

Your card is really pretty and those little critters are so cute. I hope you are well and will post many more of your lovely cards again in the future
Hugs Cxx

Purple Happy Birthdat

by Jennifer Swandells

A very quick card, DL size, dark purple and light purple card, with ribbon put round the bottom of the card and 4 pearls at the corners.

The die that I used was a Die-Versions alphabet die, 'A Hint of Lime' font. I used the letters to spell out Happy Birthday on the bunting.

I put a small purple butterfly on the right hand corner of the card.

Another lovely card and this is so simple and elegant and I love the colours you have used.
It will take pride of place on someones mantelshelf

Happy Birthday Yellow

by Jennifer Swandells

I am in the process of making a variety of different cards, so this is another Happy Birthday one that I have finished.

This is a 7 x 7 card.
Dies used: Chrysanthemum by Sue Wilson, Happy Birthday die was a free gift from one of my magazines. I also used the Dotty Clouds embossing folder, which is really nice as it is not heavily embossed.

I used Silver Mirri card first, then the layer with the Dotty Clouds embossing, I then cut out 3 smaller squares in Silver and White and mounted the Happy Birthday die onto the last piece of card.

I die cut the Chrysanthemum die and used two of the sizes available to create the flower, Imade the centres of the flowers with silver and yellow. In order to make the most of these flowers, I would really have to make a box to put the card in as when it goes into an envelope it 'squashes' the petals, which is a shame as it is really pretty.

I also put pearls at each of the corners of the card.
