Humphrey flowers Birthday Card

Hello Blogging peeps, sorry to be so long between posts, I have been making cards, but since my printer went kaput it seems my digital camera which I use to take piccies and post here has been missing it and is playing up big time.
I tried buying a new cable for it as the computer kept saying it didn't recognise the usb connection but it was still not loading properly.

Having fully charged it for two days (just to be sure lol) it loaded my pics first time so I will hopefully post again in a bit the second card I have been working on in the week.

The first is this happy birthday one which I am sending to crafters companion for their birthday, they have a bit of a competition going to win a guest designer spot so I thought why not.... Anyway enough with the gabbing more about the card.

Another 8 x 8 square (you know how much I luv em) and gold mirri matted underneath a a yellow glitter silk coredination and then a pink coredination with a spellbinder edgability border matted underneath a yellow gingham card which has a matching border with a detail added to give the lovely petal shapes. ( I love the way you can line the edges up with the edgeabilities... my new favourite thing!)

I cut a large scalloped circle with an spellbinders die and matted and layered a gold mirri circle and then the humphrey decoupage. I followed an online tutorial at (I am hoping it gives the link ok) to make the lovely flower and added a flower gem to it.

I die cut two sprigs and stuck them to the card then added my two 'flowers' to finish I added some pink gems in the border, some card candi in the corners and a matching embossed happy birthday greeting in the pink coredinations.

All in all a pretty card with the super cute elephants... which I love toooo much lol. In my next card (If I can get it to load) something different for the blog but something else I love... a card made using a nitwit design.

Anyway until then take care



  1. I like 8x8 cards too! And I really like the way you have done the edgablilities - good luck in the competition.
