18th Birthdays

Hi there....Oh dear my blog has been badly neglected, so two posts in two days is a record! I thought I would share the cards I made for my daughter and her friend who both turned 18 recently.

This first card is made with Sheena Douglass stamps and dies. I stamped and masked one of the skulls before stamping and masking the flowers onto glossy card. Once stamped I coloured with brush markers and then added the second stamped and die cut skull. I decided to add flat back gems around the eye sockets and decorated with the stamps that came in the set to create a traditional sugar skull.

The second card was made for my daughter on my trusty Scan n Cut. The last project it made before being traded in for the newest CM900 model...yay!

I welded hearts, flowers and leaves into a heart shape base and also cut out separate hearts and flowers so that they could be decoupaged onto the base. The 18 was cut and glittered and the background was stamped in pink with various swirls and flowers that I had in my stash. White highlight and Crystal Stickles have been added as finishing touches.

Many thanks for taking a peek. I will be back soon.
