18th Birthday part 2

So as you saw in the last post I have had two 18th birthdays in 3 days. My sons and my niece.

This post is all about my Nieces card.

She too has also just completed her final year of school and got an amazing ATAR and whilst studying still managed to compete in BMX competitions and Dance (for which she got best in the year as well)

So this card I wanted to try and encompass her passion and bling. I adore this card as I think we really nailed it (again with the input from Marlene).

Using some glitter paper, thinlits and embellishments we created perfection for her.


As always you can order any supplies or cards through me by emailing me on nicscreativecards@gmail.com. Wishing you all a happy new year. May 2018 be a safe healthier and happier year for you all :)







 

18th Birthday cards

Hi I am back. What a crazy year 2017 has been. My family life has been so busy. In the last few months my son graduated high school, turned 18, my daughter got elected house captain for her sports house at school and my second son got his first job and managed to get employee of the month in the first month he started.

I also had a massive order to fulfil so I wasn't online much. Hoping I will have a more online presence in 2018 though.

So with my son and niece both turning 18 within 3 days of each other I got busy making their cards. Two very different young adults so therefore very different cards.

 The first born of the two was my son. He is a typical young man wanting to buy his first car and that happens to be a ute he has his eye on. What better card then than a ute. With the help of Marlene Fuller we set about making this a card to remember and never want to get rid of.

Firstly stamping the image with Veramark ink we then embossed with Black embossing powder. Heat setting it. We then coloured in the ute and cut it out. The background was stamped, blinged and coloured. We then set about the WOW factor.


By adding lights it made the car come alive. It was amazing, with the use of copper tape, diodes, button batteries and wire glue it all just came together perfectly.

All stampin up products are listed below and you can order them direct from me.

Please go to my next post to see the card I made for my beautiful neice.

Happy Crafting everyone :)

Blended family card

My Aunt asked for me to come up with a card for a family combining.  After googling ideas I loved the idea of not only having the bride and groom but also the children on the card too.

Also instead of having his and her kids I mixed the names around so they were "theirs"

I loved how it turned out as did a couple of my crafty friends and above all my Aunt that ordered the card loved it too.

Let me know what you think in the comments I would love the feedback.





and whats better than a matching envelope.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you will come back again soon. Happy crafting :)

Happy 90th Queenie

What a crafty week it has been.

I have made 20 cards (12 of those christmas) and attended the Newcastle Craft show today as well with 10 of my beautiful crafty friends.

This weeks card was created for one of my mum's friends who turned 90. She was born in England and therefore nicknamed Queenie.

I wanted to incorporate the English flag, the lady herself and a crown. Mum also wanted the 6 of her friends incorporated into the card too.

I was so happy with the result. Take a look and see for yourself.



Have a great week everyone and happy crafting :)

Lollipop lollipop Oh lolli lolli lolli, lollipop, lollipop

So back in March a great friend, mentor and my upline Chloe celebrate her birthday. I wanted something different so using pinterest I searched for a design and found one I loved. Whilst making Chloe's card my daughter spotted it and exclaimed that she hoped it was her birthday card as hers was also that month, actually 2 days before Chloe's. I had already made my daughters card and it was a very different card to what I was making for my friend.. So I of course a second lollypop card was made. One was made with blue cardstock and stick and the other with pink clourings. 

Using DSP, ribbon some paper doilies a sentiment and some embellishments I was so happy with the end result as was my daughter and I can only hope my lovely friend Chloe. (PS my daughter still got her original card just from her brothers and not me lol)

My all time favourite set ever! Now thats a big call!


Back in April we got the opportunity to attend our Stampin Up conference at Luna Park. We had an amazing time seeing fellow demonstrators from all over. It is such a great atmosphere. The excitement was tenfold as our new Annual Catalogue was previewed to us and we were overwhelmed.


 

My favourite amongst the whole 233 pages was this great set. Not only do we have gorgeous stamps with matching framelits but also the most gorgeous  DSP I have seen in a very long time.

Daffodil Delight



This week was my Mum and Dad's 53rd wedding anniversary so a special card for a special couple was in order.

I love how the card folds flat but then pops out when you open it up. They absolutely loved it.



Using the wood crate framelits and the new Daisy Punch we got to work. There were a group of us at a friends and fellow Stampin Up demonstrator's place. She gave us the crates and daisy's and left us too it. The great thing was there was no card to go by it was just all us. There were so many versions and each one so different.

For any stampin Up products please don't hesitate to drop me an email at nicscreativecards@gmail.com

Happy crafting everyone 💜
