Just for Fun

This is the Theme for our new challenge over at Crafty Creations and we would love to see you there.

 

I have created this fun birthday card using an new image called Happy Day from Stampavine and I have coloured it in using Copic Markers.

 

The two decorative frames are made by Marianne Design and I have also used the Ovals Collection die and the 1 1/4” circle punch.  The paper is from my stash.

 

Here is my card:

Deck The Halls

Hi and thanks for visiting!

 

We have a new challenge over at Holly Jolly for the next two weeks and Carol is hosting our challenge.

 

Our fun theme is: Deck The Halls

 

So what does that mean to you?  Well to me it means Christmas Carols and so I have used this fabulous image from our Sponsor The Stamping Boutique called Caroling Snowmen.

 

Plus I recently found some Christmas Carols Paper from a craft shop and this has been used behind the image.

 

The image has been die cut using the Ovals Collection Die and layered on some Real Red cardstock which has also been die cut with a die from the Spellbinders Nestabilities Opulent Ovals collection.

 

Here is my card:

The ribbon is from my stash and so are the Rhinestones.  I have also added some dazzling diamonds and Silver Dazzling Details.

The main colours are: Yellow, Pink, Green and Blue

 

and we have two sponsors Fitztown and The Paper Shelter

 

For my card I have The Paper Shelter Pre-Coloured Image and Printed Papers from digital set called Angel.

 

The cardstock used is Pistachio Pudding, So Saffron and Whisper White. 

 

The sentiment is from a new stamp set from Santoro’s Urban Rubber Stamp Collection called The White Rabbit.  The sentiment seemed perfect for this card, has been stamped in Marina Mist and punched out using the Modern Label Punch.

The Petra Oval die was distressed using Pistachio Pudding ink and a dauber. The lace is from my stash, the ribbon is Whisper White Organza Ribbon and there is some bling on the paper and one of the flowers.

 

Here is my card:

Cool Things for Summer

Hi and thanks for visiting!

 

Just a quick post to share with you my card for our new challenge at Come and Get It for this week.

 

Our theme: Cool Things for Summer

 

Earlier on in the year I purchased some Sarah Kay Die Cut Sheets and one of them has this wonderful image of a little girl sitting under the tree reading and as I love to read especially in the Summer Break here which is over Christmas!  This is the image I have used.

 

This is my first go at Decoupage and I just had to find the right layout and colours but I like the soft end result.  I have added a few butterflies, paper from my stash, ribbon and bling.

 

The die that has been used is the Nestabilities Captivating Squares die. The butterflies were created with the Elegant Butterfly punch and the Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die.

 

Here is my card:

Christmas Sparkle

Hi everyone,

 

Just a quick note to share with you our new challenge over at Holly Jolly.

 

This week we want you to Show us some Glitter.

 

Can be a lot or a little it is up to you and our challenge is sponsored by The Stamping Boutique.

 

I have used an image called Snowman Father Time and coloured the image in with Copic markers.

 

The layout of my card has been inspired by the current sketch at Friday Sketch Challenge.

 

For my sparkle I have added some Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details and there is a strip of Glitter Paper behind the image, this has been punched using the Scallop Edge Border Punch.

 

I have used the Nestabilities Captivating Square Die and I have daubered some Sahara Sand around the edges of the die cut image.

 

The sentiment is from the Teen Tiny Sentiments stamp set, stamped in Midnight Muse and punched out using the Modern Label Punch.

 

The paper is from my stash and the ribbon/cardstock are Midnight Muse (one of my favourite In Colours that is retiring).  There is some bling too!!

 

Here is my card:
