Favourite Things

Three of my favourite things today ......

Gorjuss Girls
Lori Whitlock file
Patterned papers

The card has been cut with my Cammie using Papermill white card and a Lori Whitlock file called 3D stand up card: Birthday Balloons.  Really easy but effective card to make. It has a fold in the middle so it stands up nicely. I've used a lovely little 6x6 paper pad by American Crafts in the Dear Lizzy range it's called Lucky Charm.The stamp is an older Gorjuss girl stamp, the older ones are a bit smaller and suit this style of card better. I've paper pieced her with the same papers. The sentiment has been done on my computer.

Lori Whitlock file - Birthday Balloons (also available in the silhouette store).

I made this yesterday , what shall i make today???

Hi bloggers, I have decided to step down from my DT post on All Dressed Up , so I am only on the one DT now that is Cute Card Thursday. I will be staying on CCT too. I was DT right from the start and it's a fab DT to work for.
I am wanting to concentrate more on my 3D work. I have a Silhouette Cameo which I love but I also have a Cricut Explore on preorder. I really enjoy making 3D projects and it chills me out which I need right now. 

So in saying that I've had time to make this fab pop up card for my daughter to give to her teacher at the end of the term. 
Of course it's by my favourite designer Lori Whitlock and is called A2 desk pop up card. It's available in the Silhouette store.

Here is the front of the card

And here is the inside pop up desk

Isn't it cool? You can dress it up however you want. I made mine a bit masculine as it's for a male teacher.

Silhouette file : Lori Whitlock A2 desk pop up card.
Papers: WRMK - Hall Pass
Brads: My stash
White card: Papermill

I'll be doing lots more 3D projects very soon and when I get my Explore I'll let you know how it is.

Cute Card Thursday Challenge

This week's Cute Card Thursday Challenge is

Text Only

I have used my Cammie to cut out the card file by Lori Whitlock. I seem to be drawn to her files but I know that they will come out perfect every time, so tend to use them.
I've embossed each layer with an embossing folder and gone round the edges with a red ink. The sentiment is from a longer one by Inkylicious.

We;d love to see your text only projects and this week we are sponsored by Creative Classroom.

Cute Card Thursday and Post Pals

This week's theme for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge is

Handmade Embellishments

Here's my card

I've also made this card to send to a little girl from Post Pals. It really is a lovely way to make a poorly child smile. I found out about it from a group on Facebook called Jellypark Post Pals. Claire sends you a Jellypark digi image for you to use, you make a card, pick a child from the Post Pals list and send it off. The Claire will send you your next image to send. Such a great idea!!!

Image: Jellpark
Colouring medium: Spectrum Noir pens
Butterflies: Martha Stewart punch
Heart: Epiphany Crafts

Cute Card Thursday is sponsored by Whimsy Stamps this week.

Hope to see you join in.
