Someone turned 4!

Happy 4th Birthday to my little Mr Handsome!  Well my son Thomas was 4 on Thursday so as usual I made the cards and was left wrapping all the parcels! He had his favorite chocolate cake and went bowling and as the only person to get a strike he won!  He loves frogs so they had to be included in some of his cards!

Choo Choo!

This was an A4 card which I cut using a Craftwork Cards template, I also cut the template out of K & Co paper and stuck it on the front.  The 4 was cut using a silhouette die cutting machine (with the black surround cut by eye) and the black Thomas plate is a spellbinders die.  The frog stamp is from Hobbycraft, as is the ribbon and the circles for the wheels.  To make the black wheel trims I used a Tim Holtz clock stamp which was covered by the circles and the twine is also Tim Holtz.  The banner is Stampin' up as is the star stamp and the border is a Martha Stewart punch which i did twice and layered.  I printed son from the PC and used the banner punch to cut it.  Then I used a little bit of Card Candi from Craftwork Cards to finish it all off.  All edged with a dark blue ink pad!

Each year for my father in laws birthday I make a make a gift of making all his cards for the year, for him and my brother in law!
I saw this stamp in Hobbycraft ages ago and got it just for a Thomas card!  I stamped it twice, coloured with pro markers and cut one out to layer him up.  I used spellbinders to cut the circles and printed out the special grandson sentiment and cut into a banner/flag by hand.  The Happy Birthday tags are also spellbinders and the stamps were from a Hobbycraft set.  The ribbon is from QVC from when they used to actually have craft on!  The 4 is from a K&Co chipboard set that I have kept and use as templates!  The stripey paper is from a Gorjuss pack and all edged and stamped in Adirondak Lake Mist which I found cheaply on crafty sellers on facebook!

All Aboard!

For my brother in law I made this for him to give, the spotty paper is from Stampin' Up and the blue card is from my stash.  I embossed a Couture Creations tied together folder for the sea to give it texture and just used a scrunched up ink tool pad with white ink to make the clouds.  The boat is a Sizzix die my dads cousin gave me which Thomas liked the look of in the box and I cut this out of scraps and added a 4 sticker.  The sun is Card Candi and the stamps are from a Male set by Papermania.  All edged with a pale blue ink!

Next on the list is more A4 cards for work then it's time to start on Christmas!

But first Dinosaur Golf!  I hate golf but Dinosaur golf is fun!
