Just Believe Faux Silk

I have another card to share with you today - I have actually been crafting madly prior to Mother's Day - my gifts to my mother and mother-in-law was a box full of cards and envelopes so it was a mad rush to get the box full enough. Photo's you say???? Well, I forgot, or ran out of time, or both! So sad because there were some cute ones in there - all mostly simple - I'll probably try and recreate some of them and share them with you then.

Anyway, this is a card I made for a friend who is moving using the Faux Silk. This is a technique I've been dying to try but I kept forgetting to buy white tissue paper! This was SOOOOO easy, and is definitely a FAVOURITE technique that I will use again and again and again - all you have to do is stamp your image on a light coloured base, then take a piece of light coloured tissue paper (I've only used white) and cut it slightly larger then the stamped piece of cardstock. Then you scrunch the tissue paper up in your hand into a tiny ball - unravel and use our Anywhere Glue stick to cover your cardstock with and spread out your tissue paper over the top. Trim the edges and its done! And how stunning does it look...

And yes, there's that damn ruffled ribbon again??? hehehehe. I am ALWAYS finding a reason to use it - hehehehe - I really need to come up with some new tricks! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by, hopefully I'll have more to show soon!

Smiles, hugs and more smiles,

Baby Gifts

Hiya there! Its been a little longer than I was hoping it would be :) - I don't know about you but I am DYING to hear all about the Stampin' Up! Convention and am stalking blogs of the lovelies I know of who attended! I'm hoping they all had a fabulous time and have time to share all their fun with us (hint hint hint!!! hehehehe).

Anyway, I had to make a gift for a friend who's just had a lovely, gorgeous baby girl! I made a set of blocks (like these) - pink ones with the little one's name on it. Of course I had to make a matching card.....

And of course matching wrapping and a tag! I actually didn't write on the tag this time so it can be re-used if wanted???

I think that elephant is just the cutest thing ever! And of course pink and craft together aren't too bad either? :)

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Come again soon,
