Best Wishes

Today I'd like to share this pretty floral card I made.

The card is a 6x6 bright white square card. The papers are by Websters Pages.  I took the bottom corner of a page at 5x5 and distressed the edges, I stitched using red thread just along the two sides. I then found some matching green and stitched all around the edges of this and added the floral to it. I added this to the card blank using foam pads for height.
Then taking another part of the paper I fussy cut a flower section and added that with silicon to the bottom left allowing it to hang off the bottom a touch. I stamped out the sentiment and matted on to red, adding it to the card front I gave it a domed centre. A few AB sequins and we are done.

Thanks for stopping by today, leave a few words so I know who's called by.

Bestie on a flower


Back with my second post today, one to remind you all to come and join in the fun over at Color it create it show it off .  Today I'd like to share with you all this cute Easter card I have made.

This is a 6x6 card which I have covered in this fun peach paper but not before I embossed it and inked the edge. I added 2 other papers and a peach vine. Then I cut a banner and a yellow fancy edge strip (unfortunately you can't see this as I've covered it with the flowers!!) which looks like the petals of the flower she is sitting on.
The image is 957 by Sherri Baldy. Which I have coloured in using my Promarker pens. I added 3 flowers and leaves and a couple of gems.

Thanks for stopping by, please join in as prizes to be won.

I'm entering in to a few more challenges with this card...creativecraftcottage.blogspot.

Bloomin Bestie


It's reminder time over at Besties International and I'd like to share this card with you all.

This is an easel card which is for Easter this year. I have chosen to use this darling image Fancy_Pants_Bloomin_Besties_img179   which I have coloured in using my Promarker pens. I have also used stamps from Be Blessed set. I used the dies too. I cut out leaves, a couple of bugs and another fancy die behind the image.

Indian Runners!!


Today I'd like to share this fun card I made for my friends son who will be turning 21 shortly. He has many hobbies one being keeping ducks for their eggs (his mum is a fabulous baker) he has 2 breeds Alylesbury and Indian Runners. His mum asked if I could incorporate them somewhere.

So here is what I came up with...

This is a large A5 card which I have added the star paper to. Then using my printer I wrote the text as she had asked and then inked around the edges with Denim ink. I decided to stitch around the two corners using blue thread. Then I die cut the 3 star shapes out along with a few tiny ones too.
Using foam pads I added it to the card, the cut outs allow the paper to show through. I die cut the 21 today and the fantastic using a bright blue glitter card along with a few tiny stars too. 
After sticking it down I felt it was lacking something?? I had already printed off a photo I found online of the pair of Indian Runners which I mounted and added to the lost leaf inside, but my first attempt had been too small so rather than throwing it out I cut them out and added them in to the stars, so they look like they are looking on!
His mum loves the card, now I just have to wait to see if he does too.

Thanks for stopping by today, leave a few words so I know who's been.

Colour it a Happy Easter.


Well its the first of the month and time for another fun challenge over at color it create it show it off. As always it is anything goes, so come on and share your wonderful creations with us. There are prizes to be won.

Here is what I have decided to make today,

I decided to make a start on my Easter cards so I chose this cute image img098_HAPPY Easter Besties which I have coloured in using my Promarker Pens. I cut her out using a Spellbinder die and matted her up twice.
The card is a 5x7 which I covered in this pretty orange paper. Then I took some green glitter card and added to that a little orange and blue gingham, I wrapped some sparkly sheer ribbon around it and then added it to the card front. On to that went the image along with a couple of butterflies and gems. Then I stamped out the sentiment from Verve and cut that out with a die and adding some glitter card behind that we were done!

Now its your turn, come along and join in the fun. But why not pop on over to the other fab DT members blogs and check out their inspiration too.

Say It With Flowers


Being the first of the month it's time to direct you to the new challenge starting over at Besties Challenge Blog As always it is anything goes but we also have a theme and this month it is add flowers to your card/project. Now this is VERY easy for me cause I add them (and gems) to everything lol.

Here is what I have made for you to see

The card is a A5 tent fold made out of kraft card but completely covered in this fab paper from Kaisercraft out of their always-and-forever collection I have lifted the front using an extra cut of card which is covered in the paper too. The edge is lifted so I could add copious amounts of flowers and foliage along with some cheesecloth too. A few pearls and dots of glitter glue add nice touches of bling.
The sentiment I printed out on to a collectibles from another kit. I also added a few die cut bee's and ladybugs along with a little birdie and a couple of blue dragonflies too.
The images is Valentines Day img157 which I coloured in with my Promarker pens. This card is coming from the ladies baby sister so I thought the image would seem cute.

Thanks for stopping by today, I do hope you come and take part. I am also entering this card in the following challenge Noordesign.
