A first birthday Card - With a Cow!

Hi ya! I had a custom order pop up the other day from my etsy store (you can also order them at my madeit store), the request was for a first birthday card, featuring a cow, or a peanut... This is the result!
The image is a digi stamp, but I'm not sure what the company is, as it has been in my collection forever, and it's not sorted very well! I coloured her up with my spectrum noir markers, and then die-cut a circle. The patterned papers are from American Crafts, (Amy Tan) and I cut them into a sunburst pattern. I added the cow, some doodling and the sentiment (computer generated) and attached some paper flowers and a resin rose.

Some Odd Girl - Digital Stamp - Demure

Hi Lovelies! 
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter! I had a very relaxing one, I spent time down the coast, at my parents house, and got to see the nephews, and my niece. I also had time to get creative! I have a couple of new cards in store (both etsy and madeit
Anyway, onto my card! 
For this card, I started with "Demure" printed, on my desk, and coloured her up, with nothing in particular in mind for her... Which, is so not the way I craft! I then fussy cut her out, and came back to her the next day. I decided on a mostly clean and simple design for this card. I used some really old patterned paper, from when I first started card making. I think it might be Bella Blvd, but I could be very wrong! I layered it up on some black card, and then onto a white card base. I attached some washi tape, and the sentiment, which is a mix of a stamp from Technique Tuesday, and some stickers from My Minds Eye. I added some paper and resin flowers and a few small black rhinestones.

Lawn Fawn - Scrapbooking my Nephew

Happy Easter everyone! I hope your short break (if you get one) is relaxed, filled with family, friends and reflection! (oh, and chocolate!) 
I've got a scrapbook page to share with you today... 
For this scrapbook page, I wanted to keep things quite plain, and focus on these amazing photos of Lachlan, my little Nephew. I printed them off, trimmed them down, and matted them on some patterned paper, this is a really old collection, which I can't even remember who made it! I used a few small off cuts from a Lawn Fawn paper pad, and then stamped and coloured some little dinosaurs from Lawn Fawn as well! I fussy cut them out, and layered things up with a few stickers (My Minds Eye)
Here are some close ups
The Main title - Amazing Smile, was made using a sticker and a chipboard word which I coated in white embossing powder, and heat set twice. 
I added some Studio Calico cork arrow stickers and called this layout done!

From the Heart Stamps - Masculine Birthday Card

Hi guys! I have a quick giveaway happening over on my FB page, it will be drawn when I return home this afternoon (2pm AEST) All you have to do is comment on the post, of the custom journals!
Anyway, on to todays card!
For this one, I printed out the digi - Birdbrain with Candle, and coloured it up, using my Spectrum Noir Markers. I then doodled around the edges, and set the image aside. For the card base, I used paper by Sn@p and layered it up with some very old October Afternoon, and Echo Park papers. I doodled around all the layers, and stamped a sentiment. I added some twine for some texture, and a couple of rhinestones.

The Greeting Farm & Bugaboo Stamps Birthday Cards

Hi guys! I've been popping things in, and changing things up, in both my madeit and etsy stores, so pop over for a look!
Last night, I was up late, creating a couple of birthday cards... One just for fun, the other because a friend is celebrating their 29th birthday today, and I procrastinated creating ;)
Here is the first one - 
I had to play with my all new patterned papers, from Kaisercraft (OMG, this is an amazing collection!) I grabbed the woodgrain paper, and the giant flower one, and the other paper is Carte Bella. I layered them up, and then decided on the stamp I wanted to use, which is from The Greeting Farm and coloured her up using my Spectrum Noir Markers. I popped her into one of the polaroid frames, from Kaisercraft, and stamped the sentiments, which are a mix of Some Odd Girl and My Favourite Things. I added a bunch of paper and resin flowers. Here is the close up
This one is being entered into - 
Friday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 67
The Greeting Farm - FFF Photo Inspiration
Now, on to the second birthday card, it's a lot different ;)
I printed out the digital stamp, from Bugaboo Stamps, and coloured it up using my Spectrum Noir Markers, mounted it on some blue paper from Echo Park, which I'd printed the sentiment straight onto. 
I added a few rhinestones, and some doodling, and called this card done!
