My Little Pony card

It was one of my lovely friend’s birthdays over the weekend and I of course went into card-making mode to put together a special Pony/cupcake inspired piece for her ^_^.

My plan was to create something Eurovision themed because the birthday party was mainly going to centered around watching the 2012 finals. However, I wasn’t happy with any of the ideas I came up with and decided to take another direction. Through a bit of brain-storming the idea of amalgamating My Little Pony with chocolate cupcake icing and sprinkles came about and thus began the creation of my friend’s card!

Dads Birthday Card

I’ve been meaning to post about this for a while now. It was my Dad’s birthday a couple of weeks ago which meant I of course needed to make him a birthday card for the occasion!

I took inspiration for the design from some Tudor lettering I discovered a while ago. I liked the way the ribbon weaved around the letters and wanted to make something that was similar yet a little more modern.

Birthday Gift Tags in December!

22nd Birthday Gift Tag
22nd Birthday Gift Tag!

I’ve been busy making cards and getting everything ready for Christmas however I also had time to make a gift tag for one of my dear friend’s birthdays!

While I originally planned to make a full card, I decided it would be better to keep it to a simple gift tag so it didn’t overwhelm the present itself. It still ended up being a pretty giant gift tag though ^^;;.

Birthday Cards Ahoy!

Pikachu and Clarice Cliff Card

I’ve been pretty busy lately so I haven’t had a chance to get back into my anatomy drawing but in the meantime I’ve been making cards for my sister and mum whose birthday are within a week of each other! I wanted to make each card about items they really like ^_^.

The first one was a cute Pikachu card for my sister who is a huge Pokemon fan. I wanted to challenge myself to try my pattern style within a custom shape like Pikachu’s body. I found a picture and printed it out before I started to draw out the pattern. Once I worked that out I got some cooking paper, traced him in and coloured the back with a 6B pencil before retracing it to the special paper I use for cards.

Birthday Shenanigans

Kaki Hurai – Oysters

So last Wednesday was my birthday and I’m now a ‘mature’ 22 year old :D! I was out of ideas as to where to have my party (I wanted to have more of a dinner get-together thing) so I asked a friend about it. She suggested that I should have my dinner at a restaurant that I’ve always wanted to try but have never been to: Sono Restaurant.

I got a booking for about 20 people in their 2 private rooms which can be opened up to make 1. The tables aren’t joined but you can see each other.

Make me a Birthday Card

Happy Birthday Card 1
Birthday Card!

Whenever I get the chance and there’s enough time, I always try to make cards for people’s birthdays. For me, making one is a little more personal than a standard Hallmark card and it also gives me an excuse to practice drawing. On Sunday it was my Nan’s birthday and I wanted to make a card that tested my skills a bit more.
