I'm Still here....

 Hi crafter's,

I know it's been a while since my last post but life just seems to get in the way of me and the computer sometimes.

 I do have a few cards to share. I try my best not to let life get in the way of making cards LOL.

This one is a pop out flower card. I saw the instructions for this a couple of years ago but never made one. Then I saw it again in last months Craft Stamper magazine, so I thought I would give it a go.

This is a view of the out side of the card

and now a view of the inside.
This card I made just before Christmas. 
for this card I used the same card layout as the one above.
  I cut 10 bell shapes from pearlised paper , sponged each one with old paper distress ink , folded each one in half then glued them together.
Makes a lovely 3D card that folds flat to go in an envelope.

This card is the last one for this post and is one I was asked to show how to make in one of the classes that I run. This class is nicknamed the J club. I will tell you about that in another post.

 Any way back to the card. It's a secret slider card
It's a variation of a card I made a couple of years ago.

The pic above shows the card closed.

Here it is open

Well that's all for now. Thank you for visiting my little blog. Why not leave me a comment and let me know what you think I do love to hear from you.
I'll see you soon with some more makes.

iPhone card

Hi Crafter's

I hope your year has got off to a good start.

Here is an idea for a card and my first card of the year.

It is always difficult making cards for men or teenage boys. This is a card I made for a customer. She said he liked mobile phones and was always on his, so could I do something along those lines.
Well I said that I would, then went into a panic because I had nothing in my stash that was anything to do with mobile phones. ...... Thinking cap time....... And with the help of my son, I came up with this......

The image is computer generated and printed out onto photo paper. The card itself is black mirri card.
And to complete it here is the back of the card.
I didn't have an apple punch so I used a heart punch instead and cut it down to the desired shape.

Well that's all for now sorry it's a short post today.
Thank you for visiting my little blog, and I will see you again soon with another card.
