Heartfelt Wishes


Hi,
Today I'd like to share with you a little card I made using this sweet image I have had sitting on my desk for months!
The card is a 6x6 bright white card blank and on to that I have added 2 papers from the same paper pad. The first I ran through a embossing folder and the second I cut a little smaller and added on top.
The navy blue corner added interest to which I added a pale blue gem. The faux ribbon is a die my Bestie gave me for my last birthday, I added a gem to that too.



The image was cut out using a stitched die and I inked the edges with soft blue. I added it to a Spellbinder layer.
The sentiment I felt could be either for sympathy or sickness/get well.

Thanks for stopping by today, if you have the time leave a word or two.  I am entering this card in the following Blog Challenges too.

Friends are Flowers

Hi there,

Well its time to share with you all my reminder project for this months challenge over at Bestieschallenge.blogspot.  Remember it is a anything goes challenge but we do have a theme running to and it is Sparkle Glam or Glitter.

I've used a image found here at  mybestiesshop.com  she is called IMG806,Fashionista,Besties and when you buy her you get 2 images, the other is her head & shoulders.

I've made a card again this time, it is a 5x7 bright white card blank and I've used papers to cover it all from the same paper pad. I then set about colouring her in using my Promarker pens.
I added some glitter glue to her bodice and the flowers. I used my stitched die to cut her out and I added her with pads for lift. The sentiment is by Sue Wilson and I matted that on to some lime green to match her top.
I found paper flowers in my stash similar to those on her hat and to those I added pearl brads. A few bling gems and the card is complete.

I am entering this card in to the following challenges

A Sunny Thank You!

Hello and I hope your enjoying this beautiful weather we are having here in the U.K. at the moment?

I'm a lover of all things Verve and I'm so happy because they are back after a long break with a New Release Blog hop. You can find it Here . Yesterday Betty made a lovely card using blue and yellow and I thought it so striking I told her I was going to make a card using those colours. So here it is...


The card is a 5x7 cream card blank and on to that I have added a slightly smaller piece of Bayu paper by Kaisercraft. Then I've taken a piece of cream card and out of that I've cut using one of my new Tim Holtz Mixed Media dies#2. Then I've taken stamps and dies from Be Blessed stamps by Verve . I placed 3 straight on to the cream card and coloured in with my Promarker pens. Then on another piece I stamped and then cut out 3 more.
I added those on foam pads and added a pale blue gem. Around the flat 3 I added dashes with a blue pen. The sentiment is also by Verve from the Simply Amazing set.

Fabulous at 50!

Hello,

Well it's 1st July and so time to start a new challenge over at Besties International challenge . I hope you have seen that the rules have been changed a bit. Now we will have the main winners from the entrants who are NOT from Bestie Design Teams, then Bestie DT members will be in their own group to win too.

As always we are a "anything goes" challenge but we do have a theme to play along with too and this month it is Sparkle Glam & Glitter. Amongst the imagies you can win is the Bestie Beauty I have chosen to use IMG811 Fashionista   isn't she gorgeous? Very Audry Hepburn I think.

I was asked to make a card for someone who sells Avon and she is very glamorous so I thought Yes this is the right image.
The card is a 6x6 bright white blank which I covered in a black paper, then I added this Paris theme paper which I have had for some time. I added papers which matched her dress and trims. My own Bestie Sandy Palmer sent me some die cuts last year and one of them was this Eiffel tower which I think goes well there at her side. 3 pretty flowers pick up the one on her dress and of course a few black pearls were needed too.
Thanks for stopping by today, hope you can join in with us over at the challenge.

Drummer Boy

Thanks for stopping by today,

Here I have a small card I made to play along with a couple of fun Christmas challenges.


This is a cute 5x5 card blank in bright white to which I have added this fun paper which believe it or not is from a summer paper pad, one I won last month from Ribbon Girl.co.uk it is called Echo Park Summer Bliss the paper is double sided and I thought "why not".
To this I tied some red twine which I'd added a metal snowflake charm to. Then down went a music flourish and then a distressed bit of music paper. I then took my image which can be found Here and he is Scann0082 Drummer Boy which I coloured in with my Promarkers. I added some sprigs at the bottom and then dotted some bright red stars around.

Colour it Reminder Time

Hi,

It's 15th of the month and time for a reminder post for the current challenge over at coloritcreateitshowitoff.blogspot. It is as always a anything goes challenge so come on over and show us what you have been creating. There are prizes to be won!

Here is what I made for you all today..

 I thought I'd do a fold back card this time. It is a cute 5x5 cream card blank for which I covered the back and the front fold in a dusty pink card. Then to the back I added a slightly smaller DCWV "Happy Birthday" paper and the a thin strip of their glitter card to the front panel.
I chose to use this darling image # img831 which can be purchased Here if you enter you could win her!
I coloured her in using my Promarker pens. Here is a photo showing a little of the inside.


I mounted her on to a butter yellow and then pink card and added her to the front panel. As she is surrounded by sewing bits and bobs I included buttons to the top left and bottom right corners, one being a orange heart one matching the button on her blouse.
I have pricked around the edges of several layers to keep with the theme of the image.

Thanks for stopping by today, please come over and share your makes.

Reminder Time at Besties International

Hello,

Well it's the 15th so it can only mean its time for a reminder of the challenge over at Besties challenge.blogspot.
 We are still running with our theme of Steampunk and this time I've made a large tag which I intend to add to the front of a gift bag at some point!


I have used this cute little person ( could be a girl or guy I thought!) img131_Steampunk and I chose to colour him in shades of lavender. I used my Promarker pens and then I cut him out.
I made a tag using a DCWV paper pad and embossed a cogs frame (which you may just see on the right hand side) and inked it. Then I ripped a Lawn Fawn paper to fit the left side and inked that too. I cut out several cogs using my Spellbinder set and added those.
Then I chose some sentiment stamps from Kaisercraft at Merly Impressions. and added those along with a couple of glittery whirls and a brad. I chose purple gingham and shimmery green ribbon to tie at the top.

Thanks for stopping by, leave a word or two so I know you called in.
