Double the fun: Mum & Nanny Birthday cards

Happy Sunday everyone. Sorry i’ve been absent for a while, my body is still trying to adjust to this new working mom lifestyle and as such i’ve been hitting the sack early feeling pretty exhausted. But time is a healer of all things, and with every passing day I am adjusting better and better-er!

So lets share some crafting! 🙂

It was mums birthday on a few weeks back, and one of the awesome things about being a mummy is that I get to make two cards for occasions such as these- one for mum, one for Nanny. Double the fun!

This card was inspired by a card posted on twitter which was made using a gorgeous grey tone, and as I was leafing through my 6×6 pack of SEI papers (6×6 Poppy paper stack) this pretty grey striped paper caught my eye. To make the grey panel, I rubbed some pumice stone distress ink straight onto card, and I also used the same ink pad when stamping. The letters are from the hero arts monogram clear stamps. I love this set – it’s so useful.

To add some colour I cut some flowers from pattern paper from the same SEI paper pad and embellished using Enamel Accents.

For the Nanny card I wanted brighter colours to add a more playful element. Here I took papers from the togetherness paper pad by cosmo cricket- I love that mustard yellow colour- it reminds me of my own Nannie who always added a little scoop of English mustard to the edge of her plate every Sunday.

Once again I’ve turned to the Trimcraft ‘relatives’ stamp set for the word Nanny- what a great set! And not expensive either!

And don’t worry, i didn’t forget (merely delayed)…the Scrapbook Magazine goes to LISA WILLIAMS. Congrats Lisa -send me your address.

Also, can I please take a moment to have a huge shout out to Heidi from Simon Says Stamps! Thank you sooooo much, you know the reason why! (its because she is awesome!) 🙂
