A lot of Cards.

Ok so it has been a good long while since I have blogged.
As usual it has just been a case of not getting a chance with everything else (i.e. real life) but I did manage to get a bit of crafting done.
Most of the following cards are communion cards & I am delighted that the communion season is over for another year!
Photobucket
The image on this card is from Karens Doodles & they are just really lovely, I have the confirmation ones too & she has a fab wedding one too!!
Photobucket
Just a close up of my colouring (think I'm finally getting to know my ProMarkers at last lol) The paper is from the Papermania Birdsong pack!

This one was the first of 3 for the same little girl!!!
Photobucket
The border is punched using an Xcut punch, I really do love these new punches as they seem a lot sturdier than some of the more popular ones out there! Hopefully they will bring out a lot more designs.
The stamp is a Whiff Of Joy one & was coloured using Promarkers although there wasnt too much colouring.
Photobucket
Gems were added using my new I-Rock tool & stencil.

This was the 2nd of the 3 for this girl.
Photobucket
Border punch is again done using an Xcut punch, butterfly & teeny flowers were cut using my eCraft, bow made using bow maker, Karens Doodles image used & coloured with ProMarkers & as with almost all of my cards the sentiment was done with my CraftRobo.
Photobucket
I think this is one of my fave images!!

This was the final card of the 3 & it was a little hard to come up with something!
I wasn't happy with it, felt it was missing something but the customer was delighted with it.
Photobucket
Again its a Karens Doodles image & coloured with ProMarkers, can't remember the brand of paper but I know I have it in a good few colours & I have used them a lot when I get stuck!!
The "stitching" is done using my Sew Easy tool & the Zig Zag attachment head!
Photobucket
Used a Fiskars corner punch on the corners.

Photobucket
This was the first of 2 for the same girl.
It is just as well I found those Karens Doodles images lol!!
Again the usual tools were used ProMarkers, Bow Maker & CraftRobo & I used a paper doily. I found these in my local €2 shop for a pack of 60 with 3 different sizes.
Photobucket
I love yellow & brown together.

Photobucket
This is the 2nd of the 2 & the photo is terrible I know but I only remembered to take the photo when the card was being collected in the evening time so I was chasing the light lol!!
For this one I made the background paper using the stamp & chalk technique I learned at Jackie Mooney's beginners & techniques workshop. I loved this technique & have used it a few times since. It has me on the hunt for nice background stamps!!!
Photobucket
I used some tulle with silver spots that i have had since I first start card making & pleated it along the bottom.
Photobucket
Again my I-Rock tool & stencil was used to add bling.

Photobucket
This candle was for the girl above too.

Photobucket
Yet again I was chasing the light with this & it a Karens Doodles image again.
Photobucket
I added some glossy accents to his shoes to give him nice new shiny communion shoes.

Photobucket
Another communion candle, I really do need to get a new cross Stamp though as I tend to use this one a lot!

Photobucket
I love this image. The lovely Isobel who attends Jackies workshops very kindly let me borrow her stamp & I am delighted that I had the brainwave to stamp it onto some tissue paper!!

Photobucket
Yet another communion card!!!

Photobucket
& another !!! This time using a Whiff Of Joy stamp!

Photobucket
This time I went with a cross cut using my eCraft!

Photobucket
Photobucket
These are Jackie Mooney workshop cards that I personalized when I was asked to make cards the same day for my friends birthday by my mam & brother!

Photobucket
This is the card I made for my friends birthday, at least I was prepared lol!!
Photobucket
Photobucket
The shoe is a digi by Sketching Stamper & was the very first digi stamp I bought!
I coloured the shoe with ProMarkers & went over with an embossing marker then embossed using clear embossing powder!

Photobucket
This is the card I made for my friend from my sister who took the time to ask me to order this in time for the birthday lol!!
Photobucket
Photobucket
I can't remember where I got this digi from but I knew when I seen it that I would use it someday, kind of like most of the digi's I buy!!

Photobucket
This is a christening card using that cross stamp again & itty bitty embossed panels
Photobucket
& of course my Bow Maker

Photobucket
Card for my hubbys much younger cousin. I bought the converse embellishment with her in mind. I still have to buy her a pair of the real things though!!

Photobucket
Wedding card using the stamp & chalk technique learnt at Jackies workshop
Photobucket
A close up of the chalks.
Photobucket

Think that's about it for now!!
