Tracey’s green and white dog card

March 7th, 2011

Hi Everyone

Just thought I do a blog while I am relaxing after working very hard at a craft show at Glasgow SECC. Had a lovely time in Glasgow. Went late night shopping on Thursday, the town centre is huge. It is sooo pretty with fairy lights hanging everywhere, very romantic city.

I have not had much time to blog the last few weeks due to the craft shows starting but hopefully this week I can catch up with the post I have missed.

Tracy…. Our new designer. Has made some gorgeous cards using our Meiflower products. I love her style of cards, they are very different to mine.

Traceys cute and glam doggy card

This is a card made using the white velvet scottie dog. It comes with a pink collar but Tracey has stuck a cute sage green ribbon bow on top of the collar to match the colour scheme of the backing paper.

Velvet dog with sage green

The paper  used is from Kanban (love the colours). Sage green is very in vogue at the moment. I think the colours looks great on Birthday cards, Wedding stationery, Christmas cards. Gorgeous colour.

Organza ribbon can be used for birthday cards, wedding invites, wedding stationery, Christmas cards, mothers day cards

I love the way Tracey has used the sage green organza ribbon to create this gorgeous bow. Love it……Love it!

Hi Everyone

Hope you have all had a nice relaxing weekend. This is the only weekend we have free now for a another few months, off to do the craft fairs around the country. It will be nice to meet our regulars again.

Wanted to share a quick post with you all before I go to bed. This card is made on a 6 x 6″ square white card

I covered the front of the card with red and white gingham paper. I used matching brown and off white card for this design to go with the tarten scottie dog.  On the top and bottom part of the card I stuck a strip of  thin red satin ribbon.

Hi Everyone

Thank you all for your lovely comments for the blog candy. Sorry if your reply was late, we were doing a craft show at Manchester till Saturday and at a show at Stevenage on Sunday.

It has been abit hectic trying to do my first blog candy. It took a while to do because I wanted to give away some nice yummy stuff. Hope the lucky person who wins enjoys the goodies.

I wanted to share another doggy card with you all because someone at the craft show was commenting about how she would like to see more of my dog card designs on the blog.

Hi Everyone

Bumped into my neighbour walking her dog today. Her daughters dog had puppies and she was showing me the cute pics. Awwwwwww, they are really adorable.

I do like making dog cards even though I don’t own a dog. I just love using these sparkly glitter dogs, they just have a glamorous look to them. They are very popular with our customers at the craft show.

The base card for this doggy card is a C6 white card.

Hi everyone.

Hope are you all keeping well and ready for Christmas. Can’t believe it is only 4 days before Christmas! Went out today to do some food shopping and the traffic was horrendous, everybody looked soooo stressed out. It does not help when the roads are slushy and muddy from the snow.

I like to share with you another cute doggy card. I seem to have dog cards in my head at the moment. I think it because every time i look out the window, someone is always walking past my house with a dog towards the park. The dogs look so excited in the snow, i feel sorry for the dog owners who try to keep the dogs under control without being dragged off their feet.

You need a large white square 6 x 6″ for the basecard, round the righthand side corners with a large corner punch.

White and pink themed Birthday card

This is a very simple card to make using the gorgeous pink glitter dog. I think the glitter dog can be used on simple designs because of the texture of the glitter, it looks very glam.

I have mounted the glitter dog onto  a piece of cute patterned doggy paper from the payper box. The pattern consist off dog paw, dog kennels, dog collars, bones and balls. I have rounded the corners with a corner punch.  Layered onto a matching pink square scalloped shaped card using a nestebilities, on the corners i have stuck matching pink self adhesive gems.
