Night time eyes

Good Evening!

Just popping in to share a card I made for my Brother who often walks his dog in the evening or at night. Initially I was stumped for what to do when my Mum reminded me of some different sized wobbly eyes I purchased recently and my Dad came up with the design so it was a real team effort. I love the way that your imagination runs riot thinking of what creatures could be hiding behind those eyes.

Have a good evening!


Good Afternoon!

I have a card to share today that was made for a family member who enjoys fishing so I thought I’d make a comical scene with a big menacing shark who’s about to get hooked and of course I have the individual elements as freebies for you :) I cut all of my pieces out on my Silhouette so I have all of the relevant cut files for you and I also have the digi versions if you’d like to colour them instead.

I used textured card stock for my pieces and sponged them with coordinating distress inks to add some dimension.

I punched a hole in my backing papers and attached my boat with 2 pennies and 3d foam tape just as you would for a penny slider card. There is no channel for the pennies to slide along, just a hole, so it rocks in place making my boat look as though it is bobbing on the waves.

This photo shows that I sandwiched some acetate between the layers of my boat cabin for my window.

My hook was a homemade affair, I bent some florist wire and attached it to some thread to make the fishing line, the hook swings around as the boat rocks. My shark was cut in grey card then I coloured his teeth with a white gel pen.

Game Controller Card, cut file & digi versions

Hello There!

It’s been a family members birthday and being a teenage boy I thought a game controller card might be right up his street as I know he enjoys playing on his game console. So, if you have any teenage boys ( or big kids, lol ) that enjoy playing on this particular brand of console, this is really speedy card to put together. For those of you without a digital cutting machine I have also added a digi version for you to print and colour.

I cut the elements in the relevant colours and sponged with distress inks to add some dimension then added a couple of 3d foam pads to represent the joysticks. Easy peasy lemon squeezy :)
