Not Birthday @ Aud Sentiments

Hi there,

We have a new challenge over at Aud Sentiments, and this time we want to see anything EXCEPT birthday sentiments. We are sponsored by The Paper Shelter

and I have used Relaxing Bath for my card.

I used the pre-coloured image and layered it onto one of the other backing papers before printing out, because I wanted a sentiment panel to be included in the image. I then simply used a peel-off sentiment. I added some blue wave washi tape to a peach card base, then layered the image panel onto this. Finally I added some stars and a horseshoe.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
dragonflydreams - for a special female

Thanks for looking and I can't wait to see what you create,

Something Blue @ I Love Promarkers

Hi guys,

We have a new challenge fr you over at I Love Promarkers, with an optional theme of something blue. Quite apt with all the storms we are having in the UK at the moment!! We have a new sponsor for this challenge - Oddball Art by Lizzy Love - and I have used Big Eye Flower Girl Noora. (I am so sorry this is posted later than expected - I had scheduled it, but apparently didn't then click on publish!! Grrr).

I used a pale blue card blank from The Works.

After printing the image I coloured her with the following Promarker pens - Hair = Ivory, Tulip Yellow and Sandstone. Skin = Blush and Ivory. Others = Tawney Owl, Metallic Gold, Marine, Poppy, Twilight Sky, Royl Blue, Soft Peach and Amethyst. Her dress and night socks are coloured with watercolour pencils. I then cut the image on my paper trimmer from Hobbycraft - using the scalloped blade.

Finally I added paper flowers, a butterfly and some pearls for the flower centres.

It's all in the shoes

So as I promised, I have another card to share with you today - CAS stamped card!

I simply used some stamps I got from my mum a while back and didn't actually use. I started with a lilac card base. Then I die-cut the large label from X-cut nesting dies on pearlescent silver paper. I stamped the shoes (three of) onto this panel before adding to the base at an angle. I then stamped the sentiment on the top left corner.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

New and Blue

Hi there,

It has been a little bit manic here this weekend - mainly because I have been working - but I wanted to quikly stop by and show you my card that I made with Limited Runs current progressive image (actually it was the last one because it has taken me so long to make this post!)

I bought myself the whole range of Chameleon Colour Tones and Colour Tops - so I thought I would give them ago. It does still need quite a bit of practice lol. I then simply added a peel-off sentiment.

I would like to enter this card ito the following challenges:

Bugs @ MAWTT

Hiya everybody,

Finally got my computer working properly so that I can tell you about the new challenge that has started today over at MAWTT! It is Team B's turn this challenge, but I loved the theme so decided to play along too. Do check out the blog to see the DT inspiration! There are some fab creations.

The theme for this challenge is BUGS, chosen by Jessie. For this we are using the broad sense of the term, so insects, arachids, butterflies etc - all those little creepy crawlies :) Here is what I created:
I used some stamps from my stash by Pretty Petticoat that came free with a magazine. I staped them in blue ink (whispers) and coloured with watercolour pencils (WHSmith brand). I also stamped the matching sentiment. To finish I added a couple of diamntes and some peel-off leaves.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
C4C474 Flowers
CASology #335 Earth
ATSM #332 Make your mark
inkspirational #182 photo inkspiration (colours and flourishes)
 craftycalender - For a child

Thanks for looking,

Birthday Bubbles

Hi there,

I am always so busy with making birthday cards and I am trying to challenge myself to use my stash a bit more - especially my die-cuts (it might get easier once I have finally got my craft room organised lol). So I made a birthday card primarily using die-cutting.

I made a card blank with a rich purple card stock I had in my stash. Die-cut the champagne glasses from mirror card (also from my stash, but I do use this regularly so don't think it counts as stash busting lol). I then added some diamantes as bubbles (I wanted to keep the ones in the glass rather than having purple spotting through), and a stamped sentiment using a papermania silver ink pad, which is not used often enough as it doesn't show up on white cardstock lol.

Die used - Champagne glass from Creative Dies
Stamp was from a free set with a magazine.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
notjustcards - Anything Goes
ATSM #331 Anything Goes

I also have some wildlife pictures to share with you :)

The robin is waiting for a snack lol.
