Family Challenge Card 3 - Travel Theme

I cut out this card on a leathery look brown cardstock to resemble a suitcase or travel bag. I used brown shoelaces and a ribbon slider for the handle and closure on the case. Tilda stamp was coloured in with Copic markers and the card was inked with Distress Ink - Tea Dye to blend in with the browns I chose to use on this card. I used parts of a Jolee's by You sticker with the passport and airline ticket. Prima flowers and some ribbon complete this card.

Family Challenge Card 2 - Musical Theme

I used a Martha Stewart border punch on black card stock which I attached to a 5.5 x 5.5 inch white card. I used a KennyK stamp and coloured it in with Copic markers. I used Prima Say it with Crystals, purple brads and a chip board music note to embellish the card. Martha Stewart doily inked with chalk and punched out circles complete this cheerful musical card.

Family Challenge Card 1 - Anything Red

Our first family challenge card was to make a card using anything red. I used a KennyK stamp and coloured her in with Copic markers. I attached the stamp to coloured card stock using red brads. My background paper was embossed on my Cuttlebug machine and inked with liquid chalks in black and red. I sewed the card stock together using a decorative stitch on my sewing machine and added some roses and ribbon to embellish the card.

Cute as a Bug birthday card

An easel card with Tilda holding a balloon. The stamps was coloured in with Copic markers and Stickles. I used a Martha Stewart cupcake border punch. All paper is sewn together with my sewing machine using a decorative and straight stitch. Some ric rac ribbon and a removable tag with an ice cream sticker and a Cute as a Bug sticker make up the inside of the card with some beautiful roses to finish it off.
