Cards from Brenda and Jenny

These ladies have created these lovely cards using a variety of techniques to give us some wonderful ideas.

I find making cards for men the hardest to put together and especially if they don’t have a hobby that you can use as a theme. This card with a car on would suit any guy as you can almost gurarantee they drive a car. It will also bring back some great memories if you use a car design from yesteryear. Thank you for this great idea Jenny.

Cards for GUYS – from Sylvia

Carrying on with the cards that I have received from Sylvia, it is great to be able to also share some ideas for men.

A brillant idea by using a CD. Simple yet effective!

Very cute idea.

Very cute idea.

By making a card specifically for individuals it makes it so much easier when you think about their “Love” in life. Maybe it is Gardening, cars, music, travel…….maybe Horse riding, Dogs, Building or DIY. A great way to personalise a card and gift and also lets the receiver know that you are interested in who they are!!

Thanks again Sylvia.

Sylvia’s Cards made using Shimmer Sheetz

Just a few days ago Sylvia visited me and showed me these gorgeous cards she had made. She has generously given me permission to showcase these here on the BLOG and I will be showing more of her cards over the next days.

It is great to see what other creators do! If you are like me you will sometimes (maybe often) have a block and then you see what someone else has created and it gets you inspired again.

Shimmer Sheetz are reasonably new on the market. I first saw them just before Christmas last year and made a few cards with them. The colour range is amazing. They easily emboss, and you can use various markers to add additional colour. You can die cut them but not easily with intricate dies. I have cut them on the Cricut machine though and that worked well.

There are some good examples of how to use them on You Tube.

So for Sylvia’s cards. I am sure you will agree that these are beautiful.

cass - Shimmer Sheetz HBthday Thelma

 

As you can see, emboss these with whatever design you wish and you have your own unique style. These cards look stunning in the evening as well. If you have them on the sideboard or somewhere on show, they take on a whole new look when the light reflects off them.

Love, Joy and Peace

Love, Joy and Peace

 

They are so perfect for Christmas cards. And another………..

Beautiful Christmas!!

Shimmer Sheetz can be found here:

I am gradually building up the colour range and happy to order in any colour you would like.

Sylvia has used Peel Off’s, ribbons and Christmas Embellishments from her personal stash. Check yours out you may be surprised what you find tucked away.

Or if you do need supplies:

Card Fold Ideas….

These cards were made for specific people but show a range of card fold ideas. The first card is made by a lovely crafty friend Anne for a special young lady. Anne’s card inspired me to use the same topper on two of these cards.

Anne's card - gorgeous. Thanks for the inspiration Anne!
