ONE LAYER CARD

Good Morning Everyone, 

I'm back with an entry for the Less is More 10th birthday challenge where the theme is One Layer and Flowers.


I have made a 5" x 5" card blank and stamped off the edge with my WPlus9 Botanical Bunch set and then coloured with copics.  The sentiment, which was part of a freebie set from a magazine, has been stamped in Versafine Onyx Black.

CAS AT SPARKLES CHRISTMAS

 Morning Everyone,

I hope you've had a good weekend.  As it is the 1st of the month it is time for a new challenge over at Sparkles Christmas and this month the theme is CAS.



 For my DT card I decided to use these cute penguins from Stamping Bella. I've coloured them with copics, fussy cut them and stuck them onto a hammered card mini scalloped square.  The sentiment comes with the stamp and I've just added four little snowflakes and some glitter glue for the snow. I have also embossed a border around the edges, but you can't really see it in the photo.

FEBRUARY RUDOLPH DAYS

 Good Morning Everyone,

This is my entry for this month's Rudolph Days challenge.  


It has been sat in my drafts since December so I thought I'd better share. The reason it hasn't been seen was because I wasn't very happy with the final result, but seeing as this is a short month it has had to come out to play.

I bought these small kraft cards a while ago as I wanted to have a go at making some rustic cards, but it didn't work out.  I don't think I'm a rustic kind of person.  I used a snippet of the gorgeous snowflake paper and cut 3 strips with stitched dies and also used snippets for the deer head and the circular layers.  I then embossed the sentiment in bronze, a very simple card.

I would like to enter:

It's a lovely sunny day here and makes you think Spring is finally on it's way (and it makes hubby happy as we're generating with our solar panels).   Thank you for visiting and I will be back with a DT card tomorrow.

BABY CARD

Good Morning Everyone,

I am back with a DT card for the new As You Like It challenge where we are asking for your favourite reason to send a card.


I don't get to send many of these, but I do love making baby cards.  It is such a joyous occasion for the parents and so nice to send them a handmade card and I'm sure most people do save their baby cards.
This is another my daughter asked me to make for a friend who loves the shabby chic style.  

I have coloured the LOTV image with copics and cut it out with a sizzix oval die.  I've distressed and hand stitched the edges of the Maja Design paper and added all the embellishments including a small metal dummy, lace, flowers, chipboard hearts and pearls.

The sponsor for the challenge is:


with a lovely prize for the lucky winner

BLUE & SILVER

 Good Morning Everyone,

I'm back for the reminder post at Christmas Craft Creations where the theme is "Blue & Silver".



For my card I have used the big and bold Christmas Bauble from the Colorado Craft Company.  I have heat embossed this in silver and used Stampin Up Bashful Blue and Night of Navy for the background.  The sentiment comes with the stamp and I've added 9 sparklies for extra interest.

If you pop over to the blog you'll be able to see the inspiration from the rest of the team.

Thank you for visiting and I'll be back tomorrow with another card as it's a busy week for me.

SPRING FLOWERS

Good Morning Everyone,

I was looking for a card to send someone the other day and realised I am short of birthday cards so this is one I have made over the weekend as a start to replenish my stock.


It is a Conie Fong image called Spring Flowers, which I have coloured with copics and cut out with a Spellbinder fancy oval die.  The flowered and green papers are from LOTV and the blue is a snippet found in one of my boxes.  The embellishments are also made up of snippets, i.e. the labels which are from Mama Elephant, the flower and the little butterfly.

I originally made this for a 6" card but when I tried it on a 7" I thought it look a lot better with a large white border.

I would like to enter:

Simon Says Stamp Weds - Favourite technique (die cutting)

Thank you for visiting and I hope you have a good week.

HEARTS & FLOWERS AT THE CUTIES

 Good Morning Everyone,

I hope you are keeping well. As I am typing this the snow has just about gone and it is quite a foggy and damp morning, but I think temperatures are going to rise a bit this week so that will be better than the freezing cold.

Today is the start of a new challenge at The Cutie Pies and the theme is Hearts and Flowers - Valentines/Mother's Day cards


For my DT card I have used a LOTV image and coloured with copics.  I have hand stitched around the edges which are very slightly distressed.  The image has been cut out with a Tattered Lace die and the larger butterfly is from Memory Box.

Our sponsor for this challenge is:
with a lovely prize for the lucky winner.

I hope you'll be able to join us, but remember it must be cute.
