Late again....PTW challenge

Sooooo late with this one it probably won't count but I thought I would post it anyway...LOL
Last weeks Papertake weekly challenge was a sketch from Katharina. I used the sketch on a Father's day card for my FIL and made a couple of ATC's with it too. The optional extra was to use chipboard too, so the "DAD" ATC has chipboard letters. The papers are from shabby princess "moody blues" collection. My stash really lacks male papers!!LOL

More posts to come, Father's day cards, FIL birthday cards and the poems, quotes and joke that I used on the mini books and BIL cards.
Thanks for looking and take care

Birthday mini book 2


This is the second mini book I made for my sisters birthday, using the BIA. This project was a little more tricky. I wanted the binding rings to represent the butterflies body and lots of sparkle, it's nice to use glitter for something other than christmas. There was glitter everywhere, even the cats got some!!LOL

The shape of the butterfly was done using a heart template I printed of my computer, I took the point of the bottom and traced onto card. I used some small pieces of K&co paper across the middle of each wing then drew the flourish on in pencil. For the cover wings I used PVA glue over my pencil lines and glitter. I did this in stages so the glue wouldn't dry out while I was still applying it. For the inside wings I used a whispers pen to go over the pencil lines the rubbed them out. The book is full of butterfly and sister quotes, which I printed out and matt and layered onto card. They are attached with sticky fixers. Inside the book are teabag butterflies. I folded these and glittered the wing tips so they would twinkle. Finally some wire for the antenna and ribbon tied to the binding rings finished off the book. I made a separate tag to write my birthday wishes on too. Here it is....

I will post the quotes and poems I have used for the last few projects next time.

FIL's birthday next, some challenges and father's day to come, I have managed to make one card for my FIL and matching ATC's for the Papertake challenge this week so I will have to get them photographed and posted soon. Take care everyone, thanks for looking

Birthday mini book 1

I finally got my hands on a BIA and used my sisters birthday as a excuse to try it out! Me thinks I will be doing a lot more with this new toy!!LOL
The card/book below was for my sister from my mum. Inside is the poem "don't quit". The papers are some old K&co papers from my stash, the stamped greeting is a new stamp I got free with a magazine sub. You will probably see it a lot at the mo!!! any way here it is....

Thanks for looking, take care

Well it's been another busy week of birthdays. DS1 went to a friends birthday, I thought I'd try something a little different for this card....

I printed out the letters in "aerosol" font traced them onto cardstock and coloured using whispers brush pens and my new blender pens. Added some detail with a black pen and some sparkly stars, then attached to the card using sticky fixers. The card blank was given a fake wall effect with brush pens too. No pattern paper...unusual for me...LOL
Next was my BIL's birthday (from my mum!). He is a builder and I found this fab joke on the net for him. The papers are from shabby princess "moody blues" collection. Yeah I know more digi papers, but my paper stash is running low on male themed sheets, guess I had better go shopping!!!!LOL

Second card for my BIL from us, used the same aerosol font and brush pens as Tim's card. This time I made a backing with the pens aswell.
More birthday cards to come, my sister had her birthday the day after my BIL and a few days later was my FIL, oh and father's day to follow that...better get on and make those...LOL

take care and thanks for looking
