Say it with Flowers

Hello,

It's time for another challenge over at A Gem of a Challenge and this time we the DT are using flowers in our makes.
 As always we are a Anything Goes challenge so I hope you can come over and share what it is your creating right now. There is a random winner and 3 DT top picks with a voucher to spend on any download you like at polkadoodles.co.uk .

Today I have used bunny-with-flowers  and he comes black and white for you to colour or pre-coloured which is what I have used here. I made a tent fold 5x7 card blank and covered with a leafy print paper after stitching around the edge with daffodil yellow thread.
I used fancy-rectangles-tabs-die-set to cut out a frame for my image and placed that on to a pale green circle cut with fanciful-circles-nested-set-6-craft-cutting-dies I double cut the word Hello and lots of little flowers and leaves to complete my card.


Thanks for stopping by and I'm looking forward to visiting you at yours.

For a Lady

Hello,

It's new challenge time over at digichoosday and our theme is For a Lady but for you it is anything goes.

I have chosen to make this birthday hanger to send to my lovely Aunt who's birthday is later this week.


I started with a 6x6 piece of kraft card and added a paper from distress-ink-papers-plain which I stamped a vintage lace stamp across. Then I took 6 images from the gorgeous Belle-papillon-vintage-amazingness-download and resized them and fussy cut around the flowers. The 2 tags I have added gold flakes around. I added pink card under a couple of layers to make them pop. A couple of vintage buttons and tiny wooden hearts were added also. The two sentiments are from winnie-celebrations-2-sentiments and have been added to spare paper and foam pads beneath.
I just punched 2 holes to take the ribbon and dotted about some perfect pearls. This is so pretty in real life and feel sure she will love it as its right up her street.

Thanks for stopping by, see you soon.

Ebony Fairy Gift Box

Hello,

Well here I am sharing my project for the new challenge starting today over at lilpatchofcraftyfriends and we have a NEW to us sponsor for this #101 challenge  Emerald Faeries   Tracy has some adorable images to purchase and if you enter the challenge you may be the winner of 2 images from her store, so what are you waiting for?
 Here is my project. All ready for Easter or a little Birthday Gift using Ebony the adorable fairy hugging her toadstool. 



I coloured her in using my Promarker Pens and a few Copic's too. I printed out two images so I could decoupage  her up. I gave her a little frame before placing it on top of a little box I made. The box is 5x5.


I made up this little  flower collection for the top corner and added a little toadstool to link it all up.

As you can see I've added some sweet coconut mushrooms (which were my mum's favourites ) to the box in the first photo and chocolate eggs inside on the second photo (which have already been eaten by my husband)  hoping to give as a little gift.

I do hope you can come on over and join in the fun. Looking forward to seeing what you have made.

Love You Mum

Hello,

Today is the start of a new challenge over at A Gem of a Challenge and so as to get us ready we are thinking about Mother's Day. Here in the U.K. it falls on 31 March.




For my card today I have used this adorable image of Ella elephant with bouquet and she and all her friends can now be found in store at polkadoodles.co.uk .  If you enter the challenge you could be picked by random to be the winner of a $10 voucher to spend in store on any download of your choice. There are 3 DT choice winners who each will win one image of their choice. So come on and share your makes with us as it could be YOU.

I recently bought a Gemini and in the box were some goodies and the die you see was one of them. I have used a Kaisercraft paper from the ooh-la-la-collection along with scraps from papers found in kits from polkadoodles.co.uk . The image I placed on to a paper from distress-ink-papers-plain before printing and then I printed another image without the background which I fussy cut out and lifted on foam pads. I added perfect pearls and Nuvo drops to the flowers and around the image too.

I do hope you can join in with us and I look forward to visiting your blogs too.

Let's Celebrate!

Hello,

Today over at digichoosday we are thinking all things green but not for you guys, its anything goes. We are keeping in mind St Patrick's Day for all those who celebrate it. I know of one family member who will be.

So today I have made a sweet card to share with you all. I gave it to my lovely friend for her big birthday.


I have used this darling image called Ruby-sweet which I have coloured in with my Promarkers and Copic's. The papers are from distress-ink-papers-plain along with a sentiment from winnie-celebrations-3-sentiments  
I have added flowers, stamens, pins and glittery ribbon all purchased from RibbonGirls who sadly now have closed. The image was cut out using a long forgotten Spellbinder die.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you can join in the fun over at the challenge and don't forget to check out the teams makes too.

Glitter me silly!

Hello,

Today I'd like to share 2 Christmas cards I have made to join in with a few challenges I follow. As I said a few posts ago I am going to try to make Christmas cards all year long to stave off that rush in November.

One challenge blog I follow is jinglebellesrock.  and this fortnight the challenge is to use GLITTER so I have made 2 cards to join in. They also had a few weeks back a challenge to use up a card front that you received but couldn't throw away and on both these cards I have done so Lol.


This card front has a decoupage couple sitting watching the fun around the tree. I have mounted it on to silver glitter paper. I have stamped green sprigs on the cardbase and after adding the topper I added red glitter glue dots. On the bench there is a little glitter too.

Now for my next card, this was real easy too as the topper was off another lovely Christmas card.


I took a 6x6 cream cardbase then I cut a 4x4 cream card which I added underneath some red mulberry paper. The topper was cut with a star die and then I added a black mat to pop it before adding it to a red glitter star.
The sentiment is added to some glitter paper before placing it in the corner. To finish off I added 2 black gems to opposite corners.
As always these look far better in real life but I hope you like what you see. Thanks for stopping by.

Congratulations!

Hi,

 I’d like to share this card I have made for my friend with you today. She has just become a Grandma and is soooo tickled pink about it (well it should say blue because its a boy!).

She is a crafter and loves to make keepsake boxes as well as Scrapbooking. So I thought plenty of layers with lace and flowers were called for.



I'm hoping to join in with the following challenges
