Princess Button

This is my first challenge card for Moving Along With the Times. For challenge 5 - Cute as a button - we were given this sketch. We had to use at least one button as part of the design and this is what I came up with.
The image is from Pollycrafts - Cherry Kisses range. The dotty background paper is from Dandelion and Daisy. The flowery paper was free on a magazine and the buttons are from the Early Learning Centre.

I've got a secret

This is another recipe challenge card from me. This time for SCSC. The recipe this time was 3 buttons, 2 papers and 1 ribbon.

The buttons came from the Early learning centre (yup the toy shop), the papers were free on a couple of magazines and the ribbon is one of many in my ribbon drawer. I love this image. It is a digi stamp from Pollycraft Designs. It is one of many I have from the Cherry Kisses range. I've had the paper flowers for a while now and I can't remember who makes them.

Golden Pennies

This weeks challenge over at PBSC is a recipe 3 Ribbons....2 Flowers.....1 Pin/Charm. I just bought some delicious chocolate double satin ribbon and that got me thinking about boxes of chocolates and that led to the inspiration for the colours for this card lol.

Unfortunately I did not have any golden charms, but I think that the Princess crown charm still works.

Embossed Angel

I've just bought my first three sets of embossing folders. I'm still getting to grips with them, but this is the first card.

A friend of mine sent me the angel in an email and I knew what I wanted to do with her straight away. She is made of three layers and I have used satura stardust clear with an aqua pen to give her a light shimmer.

The ribbon that I have used on either side of the card is Burgundy velvet.

Christmas Cards already

This is my challenge to myself. I thought it was time that I started making Christmas cards and since I just received my Spellbinders Snowflake Poseabilities, I just had to have a play.
The snowflakes were die cut from starburst silver mirror card (which I found out can be hard to photograph lol).
The layout of the card was inspired by the challenge sketch over at Pollycraft Monday challenge. I originally made this card for their challenge and then realised that I had forgotten that the theme was food and drink lol. I'll have to make another card now.

Soft, Sweet Pennies

Happy Saturday to you all. I for one am glad it's the weekend. This week has been fairly successful from a work point of view, but now it is time to relax and kick back.

This is my Entry for this weeks PBSC which is titled Soft and Sweet.

I used my newest set of nesties on this one. I'm loving the layering effects that you can get with them. I tried to keep the colours light and bright and had some fun trying to thread some ribbon through the button.

I keep forgetting that I can die cut flowers, so I am going to have to make a point of making them more often. I also need to get some more of this crispy ribbon as I am running out.

I'm getting the hang of the camera better now, so the quality of my photos has gone up a bit, but I am still looking at getting a new camera so that I can show off some of the details in my cards better.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Swirly Pennies

This is my entry for this weeks challenge over at PBSC The challenge was to include swirls in the design. I have had the backgroud paper for a while, but the stamp is fairly new. The lace is by LLB and the swirly diecut is from my stash. I can't remember where I bought it.

Take a look at the DT cards over at PBSC they are lovely.

Pretty Polly

This is my first card for the challenges over at Pollycraft Monday Challenge I was lucky enough to win some of their stamps a few weeks ago and this is the first card I have made using them.

The challenge was to include arrows in the design. After a bit of thought I came up with this. The colours are not very vibrant in this photo, but you should be able to get the idea. I turned the stamp at an angle to form the arrow with the stalk. The image was printed in yellow ink and I then coloured the image with Whispers brush pens.

Colour challenge

Colour challenge this week over at PBSC we had to use the colours red, white and blue. I couldn't get a good shot of the card as I kept getting glare, even with the flash turned off.
I only seem to be making challenge cards lately. Need to do some just for fun. All of this heat has sucked the energy out of me
