A card for a Hockey Coach
I recently got asked to make a thank you card for a hockey coach and this is what I came up with.
What do you think of it?

The hockey sticks are made from a 2.8cm strip of card. Punched with the word window to give the inner curve. Punched with the 1 3/4" circle punch (with card inserted at the top) to give the outer curve. Hockey ball is a 3/4" circle.
Hockey sticks are made narrower at the top by trimming the sides with scissors.
The grass is made from the Halloween Scenes edgelit dies. (New this month!)

"A little touch of country" card
Isn't this a great fold? I do have instructions for making this style of card on my tutorial page.
This one was made with the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamps and Sprinkles of Life stamps.
The cute little picket fence is from the new Halloween scenes edgelit dies.
Contact me if you would like to order these dies for yourself.
Here is a close up of the scarecrow. I stamped his face with woven fabric stamp from the Timeless Texture stamp set to give the look of sacking.
Thanks for looking... From Rhonda

Another Shadow Box Card
This is the card that I designed for our Tauranga extravaganza last month.
It uses the very popular "One Wild Ride" stamp set plus the co-ordinating badge punch.
The top of the badge punch can also be used to create a nice scallop border...

The bike image was stamped in Staz On ink and then coloured over with a wax crayon. The wax resists the ink so that when you sponge over the whole image, the back ground turns blue but the details on the motorbike stay white. I have put a tutorial of this card up on my tutorial page.

If you want to see more ideas of this style of card, check out my post dated 27th April 2016

Ostrich Greetings
I made this original ostrich punch art using the Fox Builder punch (and Owl Builder punch, just for the eyes.) The legs are hand cut.
The fence posts are classic label punched pieces, cut in half.
Barnyard Babies
There are so many animals that you can make with the Fox Builder punch and it's matching stamp set, Foxy Friends.
Here are some more originals... baby goat, baby pig and baby sheep. They are all made with the Fox Builder punch. The pig's snout is made with a small oval thinlit from the swirly scribbles thinlits. The sheep uses a retired small scallop circle punch behind the head and the body.
A close up of the babies...
Another farm friend -
This rabbit is not original but was inspired by several different cards that I had seen on pinterest.
Thanks for visiting  Rhonda

Pinata Card
I loved the cute little pinata images on the Festive Birthday DSP (Designer Series Paper) by Stampin' Up!
I thought I might have a go at making a bigger one.
The one that I fussy cut from the DSP, I glued onto the front of the envelope, but first I enlarged the image by 300% and used the enlargement to make my own pinata for the card front.

I used my fringe scissors and very narrow strips of paper. I had to cut extra snips into each cut made by the fringe scissors so it did take some time, but it looks really cute doesn't it?
The balloon stamp is from the sweet stack stamp set.

Best Fishes Card
I love this new "Jar of Love" stamp set. It has 37 stamps!
And with that comes loads of possibilites for creating a big variety of cards.
This fishy card is made using the handle of the jar, as a net-type bag for the fish.
Like the ones the pet stores use...

Throw Confetti Card
This card uses the medium sized jar from the stamp set, stamped on vellum.  The confetti is made with the new "Sprinkles" punch, which you can see on page 187 of the 2016 / 2017 Annual catalogue.

Hello Card
The layout for this pretty card was CASEd from Debby Hughes in the UK. I loved her idea of using patterned paper for the jars.

Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment.

Using Blender Pens

Attention: open in a new window. E-mail

Tuesday, 28 June 2016

I have a couple of cards to show you that are coloured with Blender Pens.
I love using this colouring tool as it works sort of like a paint brush but is used, as its name suggests, like a pen. Picking up ink from my ink pad, I can vary the strength of colour that goes on my card, so I am able to fade and blend colours from dark to light.
These cute birds above are from the new "Best Birds" stamp set.
I have made the trees in the foreground from the woodland embossing folder. It works well with this card, I reckon.
