2013 Family Challenge 17 - Light pink and black

I cut a rectangle out of the black/silver paper which is from the DCWV Twinkle Glints paper pack. I embossed a piece of white cardstock with the dots which I attached to the back of the black/silver paper. I coloured the girl on her bicycle with Copics and Stickles. She is a laser cut matt board by Celebr8 ( I attached her with double sided tape.The flower is made up of two flowers from Prima Essentials Raspberry and a rose which I stuck together and stickled.The words "Life is but a dream" is from a K&Co sticker pack and the ribbon is from Hobby Lobby ( which was the hugest craft stores I loved to shop in America.

2013 Family Challenge 16 - Bird or Birdcage

I used some new goodies I bought this week for my card. The paper is from the Riverbank Revels paper pack. I coloured my chipboard bird in to match the birds on the paper, there aren’t many birds showing but you can see one or two on the left. I stamped the birdcage with patches of a word/postage stamp in brown ink and stickled over the whole cage. The bottom of the birdcage is a Martha Stewart border punch. The branches are from a sticker pack in my stash which I pulled the pink paper flowers it had on and I attached the brown, beige and blue button flowers.  The nest is from a Recollections pack and the roses are Prima which I was very excited to find at my local craft store. In case you haven’t noticed, Prima has my favourite flower selection. I sewed some lace behind the patterned paper and added some gems for the birdcage to hang from the branch and in the corners. The word stamp is a Lili of the Valley.  The left corner circle is from my stash.

2013 Family Challenge 15 - Shabby Chic

I used paper from a K & Company Paper Doll paper pad. I punched the edges with a Martha Stewart punch. Lots of folds. I sewed the satin ribbon bow and crocheted circles  and a butterfly together and a butterfly. I inked the white side of the card with a lilac, pink and blue. I added some Say it with Crystals and Stickles. The Mother's Day stamp is a Lili of the Valley and I stuck some gems around it.

2013 Family Challenge 14 - Ladybird

I used black dotted swiss for the base of my card and a patterned circle which I cut the one edge off with a ladybird border on. I added a few stickles to that and a black pencil dotted line. The tear bear is hand made from mulberry paper and the outfit is made from cardstock and grosgrain polka dot ribbon, flowers on the shoes, brad for a button and polka dot ribbon. I used 3 Martha Stewart border punches: fence, flowers and grass. The ladybirds are buttons and I added some Say it with Crystals. I added a flower box made from mulberry paper. The words are a Lili of the Valley stamp.

2013 Family Challenge 13 - Clock

For my card I used a Pretty Little Stamps stamp and coloured her in with Copics and Stickles and some Liquid Pearls on her hot chocolate. I used paper from the DCWV Tattered Time paper pad and cut the clocks out from the one sheet. The first clock I used as a removable tag that I can write on the bag. It slips into a pocket. I used quite a lot of Say it with Crystals. I used a Fiskars border punch and a patterned scissors around the stamp. My new distressing gadget worked hard on this card on nearly every piece of paper. I've attached a few pictures from different angles.



2013 Family Challenge 12 - Lili of the Valley stamp

This week I used paper from a Basic Grey paper pad called Sweet Threads.  I sewed my papers together using a small zigzag stitch with a variegated thread. I coloured my stamp in with Copics and added Stickles to the flowers, butterflies and bow and Glossy Accents to the shoes. I inked the edges of the stamped image after I cut it out with a Nestabilities. The words are also a Lili of the Valley stamp and I punched that out. The pearls  and corner sequined circle are from Prima.
