June crafting

Hi everyone

Really sorry I have not posted anything in ages. Work has got me tied up but its the end of the year now and most of my students have gone for the summer. Which means I am free to do me time :-)

So Ladies and Gents where should I start....
This month I have made the following cards.
A friend of mine at work is getting married next month. Using the Serif CraftArtist 2 software for this cute wedding couple bear. I also copied and past the main image so I can decoupage and give actual depth to the card. 
Same software, I created this card for my Aunt's birthday. I loved the frame of musical notes. I also copied and pasted the ballerina so I can add my personal decoupage to the card.
Don't get me wrong, I do love digital crafting. It's so much fun making your own topper and backing papers to make a card.
But where is the fun if your not using scissor and making shape with paper. 
Father's Day
This was fun. I used a Crafters Companion Die'sire Create a Card Accordion Die, to make a fathers day card. Then I die cut sheets of free papers I collect from magazines that where male related to put either side.

Stamping a frame to add dad in the middle. I lost the instructions to connect them but figured it out in the end.


ha ha ha
for my Minions card now I might do a special on this on next week as I loved making it and want to go into detail how I did this backing paper.
so a few months ago (Feels longer) me and my mother in law went to the ally pally craft fair in London. We saw a demonstration on a product called Brusho. It looked like so much fun I bought a pack. and its been sitting in my stash ever since.
My sister in law loves minions and I could not think how I was going to do a card then it hit me. Brusho.... The colours was amazing it was exactly what I was looking for pick out the main colours of the minion characters as the backing paper them add a group shot of them as the topper.
The other half thought I lost the plot till it dried up and had a trim and it looks so cool now that its come together.

the last card I have done this month is an anniversary card.
I made it for no reason at all. in fact I made quite a few of these because I had time in my schedule of not working.
So I have added this on folksy for a cheap deal £2.50 and very proud that I made them. I love this card because its all cute and lovey dovey. 
so yes that's what I have done this month. College is coming to a close and we are at the wrapping up stage. I have lots of project of crafting and cant wait to show you guys.  I promise I will write a piece about brusho I am so excited to explain what I did and the techniques that are best for me and my card making very very soon.
