Having one of those days today where I planned to do everything and instead have done bits and bobs :(
Still I've stripped a bit more wallpaper off in the hallway, so the chances of getting it finished this side of Christmas are looking more promising!
I managed to get the Mothers Day cards done for Jo and she's nipped round to pick them up. Hmm not sure she concluded from my scan pics if she thinks it's a girl or a boy - she's always wrong (aren't you Jo?) so I was hoping for her opinion and then I can start shopping in the opposite direction!
Anyway, here are the cards:
Doodlebug papers, nestabilities, papermania embellishment, fiskars punch, fiskars emboss plate
Tried something new out on this one. I knew I'd read somewhere that you could use Fiskars embossing plates in the Cuttlebug so I gave it a go. I think I need a new rubber embossing mat as two would be better. But I like the result and it's opened up more options for textured card too. I got the layout of this card and the next one from Nicole Heady's blog.
Pink Petticoat papers, Fiskars punch, Doodlebug ribbon and button, Quickutz
Hmm, in real life this is pistachio and vibrant pink! You'll have to take my word for it. Quite a simple card using Pink Petticoat papers with Quickutz die cut letters. Wanted to use this Doodlebug button but not found the right home for it until now, was a job and half to get the ribbon through though.
