A Fairy Tale Wedding

Here is another wedding card, this one I made for a special friend I meet a long time ago at school, unfortunately due to situations we lost contact with each other until the week after she got married. Its not often you get to make a card once you have seen the brides dress so I made the most of it and designed this card just for her. They picked the theme of Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, from Alice and Wonderland.

Here is a photo of her wedding so you can understand the card.

Here is her card:

Punch Art Wedding Card

Since I spent the weekend in Hamilton for my sister’s wedding I thought it was only right to share a wedding card today. First of all here is a photo of the gorgeous wedding party.


This is not the card I made her, but it is similar, I forgot to take a photo of her card. I also spent about 3 hours making her a guest sign book, but once again I forgot to take a photo of that as well.

This is a cute wedding card using punch art.

Good afternoon, yesterday I had a great friend of mine come over to craft. We both made kids cards, mine were boys ones and she did girls. I have wanted the set Dinoroar for a while now, and to be honest I have had it for ages just totally forgot about it, so since I found it on my shelf, what a perfect reason to ink it up.

Here is the first card I made, I have brayered the background and masked the dinos to get this effect.

Love Always

Good evening, Well what a fabulous  weekend I have had, it all started on Friday night with a lovely dinner with a few girl friends of mine, then yesterday we had the Auckland Extravaganza, where I worked with a very lovely lady and friend, Paula Reid. We taught a lovely card that can be used for any occasion, Wedding, anniversary, Valentines or change the sentiment and use it for a special someone for a birthday card. Then today I sent the day at the Coatesville Markets here in Auckland, it was very quiet there but I love it when your neighbours in the tents next to you are so friendly, it makes the day go very quickly. We had the organiser come and apologise to us, she tried a different layout, but this meant that our little section didn’t get the through traffic, but that’s ok, ill try again next month.

Here is a photo of the card Paula and I taught. We did not design it but re-created it from Pinterest.

Here is a tip, you can change the colour of the Silver Glimmer paper to any colour by dabbing your ink pad over it and then heat setting it with your heat gun. This is a great tip to know if you plan on placing an order that qualifies for the FREE Silver Glimmer Paper.


Have a great weekend.
