Birthday cards that are not cards!!!!


Again Life has been getting in the way of my crafting and posting to be honest.  But I have managed a few little nuggets........

First up

One of my very good friends is Katy Fox, some of you may know that she is the Editor of Craft Stamper.  Well I always find it very hard to make Katy a Birthday card for obvious reasons and I refuse to buy one.  So I set about making her a card with a difference.  I took a paper Substrate hanging thingy from Paper Artsy and this is what I made. I have to say I loved it, definately a different type of card for sure!

Up Next

I was still  in the different Birthday card mood so up next was an Art Part Frame  for my sisters birthday.
This time I decided to stamp into Embossing Paste as per Wendy's technique I saw on You Tube. 

I really liked the stamping into Embossing paste technique and will definately will use this again.
