Birthday cards

I have recently purchased a few magnolia die cuts and this is the first card I have made with them. The swirl die cut Tilda is sitting on has been covered with glitter glass. The heart was coloured with pro markers and then covered with gloss. The flower stems are also a new die cut and the butterfly's have also been covered with glitter

Sentiment LOTV

I made this card with my new LOTV stamps love them and have ordered some more (ssh don't tell my OH lol) The image has been coloured with pro markers and her wings I have added glitter glass. The gorgeous ribbon trim is from the ribbon girl love that too!

Valentine Gifts

I have made some bee mine mint humbugs to go with the valentine card below. Idea from It'sallfiddlefart I didn't have any eyes small enough so I punched out some white dots with a hole punch and coloured the black eyes in with gel (Probably the one and only moneysaving thing I have done since joining the card making thread at MSE!)
The boxes I have made using my scor pal and inside are filled with the bee's, love hearts and heart chocolates

Ribbon from Cosco

Valentine Card

This is the valentine card I have made for my boyfriend. The papers I have used were emailed to me from someone at MSE (thank you can't remember who it was!). I have coloured one of the hearts with pro markers and glossy accents and the other heart with glass glitter. You can't tell from the picture but I have stitched from the bee to the image with yellow stitching. I have inked the image and sentiment and finished it off with a bee brad.

Image Kraftin Kimmie and has been coloured with pro markers
arts are chipboard and I can't remember where I got them from

More Male cards

I find teenage boy cards really hard to make, I get stuck when I can't use lovely ribbons and flowers, I think this digi image might get a lot of use!
Papers are Cosmo Cricket Joy Ride
Digi Mo Manning
Ribbon from my stash

This card is also for a teenager but his birthday was at Christmas and I went on holiday and forgot!! Wasn't sure what to do as happy birthday seemed a bit inappropriate considering it was three weeks late! I stuck some silver dots round the die cut

Birthday Cake

This is the birthday cake me and my SIL made for my OH last week. I can't really take much credit for it as all I did was bash up some hobnobs for the sand and make the tree out of a twix and icing lol.
My brother made the shark which I am in awe of and the rest is made up of maltesers and mini eggs. The theme is my OH scuba diving while being eaten by a shark with me sunbathing and ignoring him he he
