Vintage Bingo Card



I was asked to make a  bingo card for a friends mum, well I don't really know her mum so I decided to make two cards, One vintage and the other was a bit of fun, I showed my friend both cards and she said that her Mum would love the humour one.
I decided to show you both as my vintage one is a bit different but I hope you like it.
I drew a bingo page myself, I aged the paper with distress inks. I used glitter glue for the Bingo sign and Gold Candi (from Craftwork Cards) to put on the numbers, (You can tell I don't play Bingo as I don't know the correct terms for it lol) I used card stock from Kanban Crafts and aged it. I added flexi peel offs from Pinflair Crafts  around the edge of the card.
The tag I used from Craftwork cards, I aged it and mounted it on mirri card, I wrote Mum in glitter and added some pearls and some ribbon, I added glitter to the hat pins. And made a bow.

The bingo I glittered as I wanted it to stand out on the card

This is the other card that my friend wanted. I do love these images, It is from a collection called "Golden Oldies" from Hunkydory.

So easy to make and I love making Decoupage cards

Added a sentiment and added pearl liquid to it
I do hope you enjoyed your visit today, Please feel free to leave a comment, as I love to read them,
Thank you

New Home Card




I saw these shape cards from the amazing Craftwork cards and I fell in love with them. They are such fun to work with and I love that you can use them for so many different occassions. 
I used the Bohemian papers (birdcage) Candi and mini flowers also from Craftwork cards. They are such soft gorgeous colours and I love the chic look you get from them.
I drew around the shape of the card onto the paper and drew the circle and i cut it out very carefully as I wanted to use it for the inside of the card.
I stuck the paper to the front and then 
I inked the edges of the card with lavender ink just to soften the edges, I added some glitter to the flowers and the bottom of the card, just to make them stand out. The leaves are hat pins and I added some lace that I inked with the lavender and some beautiful bold pink ribbon that I folded and glued to make the roof
For the inside of the card I inked around the edges to soften it and match it in with the outside, I used the Bohemian paper to make the sentiment and used the Candi to frame it
