Eclipse Card for a 21st Birthday using Mixed Drinks

Hello there!
Today I want to share with you the card I made when my eldest turned 21 recently :-) How old do feel??? Lol! To tell you a (not very funny) story he kindly pointed out how much younger Emma Bunton looked on TV the other day considering she is the same age as me! Erm, yes, thanks for that, son... Time to trade that kid in I think... ;-)
Anyway, I wanted to do an Eclipse card and have his name and age on it so I made this card using the Mixed Drinks stamps....
 I started by stamping the beer and bubbles and I coloured in the froth too before die cutting his name and age.
 I layered the white card, flat onto navy card before adding the popped up sections with foam strips, so quick!
 I needed a small-ish gift box so I used one of the silver mini gable boxes and decorated it to match the card.
  Adding Gold Faceted Gems...
...as well as some cute, corduroy ribbon to secure the box closed (and make it take a bit longer to open ;-))
 And that's it, my biggest baby is 21! And what a lovely young man he has grown to be (apart from when he's insulting me, of course, lol!) Seriously though, we are super proud of him :-)
Well, that's it from me for today, I'll be back tomorrow with another card for a new challenge with Inspire. Create. I do hope you'll join me here?

Cake Soiree with Watercoloured Stripes.

Hello there,
I have a watercoloured stripes card for you today in Wild Wasabi using the very pretty Cake Soiree stamps and dies. I decided to adhere the die cut area flat and pop up the larger piece. I do like this layout on a card and I haven't done it for a while so it felt good to revisit it...
 I had coloured this little cake with my blends and then popped it in my "basket of shame." Which is a rather dramatic name for a basket I have of half finished toppers/stamped images/already coloured images, ready to make into a card. The problem is I have far too many half finished projects, hence the recent re-naming of said basket from the much gentler "projects to-do basket" ;-)
 I also made this watercoloured stripes striped background, using Wild Wasabi ink on shimmery white card, a-g-e-s ago and had it ready to use *-* Will I ever learn? ;-)
The stamps and dies are available as a bundle but don't forget, just 'till the end of March, the framelits are available as a Sale-a-Bration item. Please use the special code for this if choosing the dies or any of the "final wave" items as a SaB choice. More info on SaB choices can be found HERE.
 Sentiment is from the Cake Soiree set too and I stamped it on Vellum card before layering it onto more wasabi, hiding the glue with silver enamel hearts.
Right, well that's todays card! What do you think? Let me know in the comments :-)
Thanks for looking today!

Magical Day Mermaid on a Narrow Notecard

Happy Sunday!
I hope this post finds you well? Last week was super crafty for me but I have hardly managed to get in my craft room this week, which has been tough after thinking I was not very busy this week! My days seem to have been pretty full of jobs *-*
So, today we are finishing off the tiling in the kitchen but I wanted to hop on here and share a card with you first :-) This is another class card and it's a super cute Narrow Notecard. I love the size of these little notecards, they make such cute cards for sending sweet little messages...
 I used the mermaid for this one atop another of those tags from the Sweet Cake framelits which, incidentally, are now offered as a choice for Sale-a-Bration if you spend £90* :-D
*NOTE: Please ensure you use the correct code for the new SaB product choices from the regular catalogues. Feel free to message me of you have any questions :-)
 I added the sweet seahorse as a subtle pattern down one side and also some of the pink tinsel ribbon to the tag for that essential sparkle!
and here's those extra SaB choices for you again...
Well, that's all from me today, I hope you enjoyed this new narrow notecard. Have you got any of them yet? I'd love to see your makes with them (or any SU! product) over on my Facebook group I created especially for sharing your creations!
Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you get a chance to be crafty today!
