Twins turn one

Today my Twin great - nephews turn one. It is hard to believe that they have gone from this tiny to the happy and healty boys they are now.

Beacause the boys are identical my niece like to keep them in certain colours just so you can tell them apart. Kobe Bryce is the one on the left and this is his card. My first attempt at a round easel card, it wasn't as difficult as I first thought. I stamped my image and coloured it with copics. I then used Plaid dimensional glass finish tint over the star to make it pop. Then used nestabilities to cut out the shapes and then just assembled them. You can find some instruction on splitcoast stampers resource files I made this z fold card for Dylan Blake, I stamped the image and coloured it with copics and used dimensional tint on the ribbon and spots on the present. You can find insrtuctions for the zigzag fold card by following a link that I posted last month

Just the two of us

In February I entered a card into the Card of the Month competition on Boomerang Stampers List a yahoo group for stampers from Australia and New Zealand. I got the biggest shock of my life when they announced my card had won. This is my card the theme was animals, the prize was the knowledge that when put to the vote other people did enjoy my cards. Plus my card would grace the web page for the following month plus then I chose the theme for the next cotm challenge.

There seemed to be some interest with constuction cards and several posts had links, so my theme for march was fun folds. You are allowed to post 2 cards each so I made 2 different one a easel card and a zigzag card.

This card was made for my sister's birthday and I had posted it previously on her birthday.
