Updating blank cards...


Hey,

Happy Friday!

I recently made a whole batch of blank cards for a friend.

The ones that she didn't take, came in handy for me, as there was a huge amount of Aug birthdays / anniversaries that with my travels I was ill prepared for!

So I decided that I would add the sentiments to these essentially ready to go cards - sweet!

The main card is one of my faves, I love the effect you get when you spritz distress inks and then dry them. The sentiment stamps are by SSS and I bought them on sale when I was at the airport heading to London the last time..literally I was running down the tunnel whilst my purchase went through :)

This card is a another fave, I love using the SSS All boy stamp set - it was in one of my first ever cardkits and I totally over use it!


I decided the Neat and Tangled everyday labels worked well here - adds to the modern feel.

Both of these cards went to men, so it was nice to see that I had made some things that suited men - so difficult to make for!

I'll show you another updated card tomorrow :)

Have a great weekend, I'll be at my desk, as I am leaving for London in a week, so cramming in as much crafty time as I can.

  3. I love doing this - I started changing sentiments to existing cards that were in the stash that didn't get used as well just to jazz things up. Love your sneaker card and the bike - is that Sizzix? - and the big sentiment. Big fan of your work x
