Sparkle Challenge / Mums Birthday

I thought I would combine the Sparkle Challenge with Mums birthday card, and use some of the delicious coloured card I recently got from the Paper Mill. I used a template to cut the slipper, put double sided sticky on the the piece that goes over the foot and sprinkled with glitter. I then stuck to the card with double sided tape putting marabou feathers at the top edge. I am really pleased with the result, I hope Mum likes it too!

Baby Pink Glittery Medallion

Another medallion, although the stamped image is approx the same size as the last one, this card is a lot smaller! Using baby pink and white pearlescent card I stamped and glittered 7 images, alternating the colours I then assembled the medallion using 3d foam pads, mounted it onto white mulberry paper and a baby pink pearlescent card. I haven't added any greeting to the card so it can be used for any occasion.

First A4 birthday card

I was recently asked to make a large card for a 50th birthday. I was concerned at how I was going to fill the space, especially as they wanted a medallion centre piece... Thank goodness for my Cricut machine is all I can say. I was really pleased with the end result. I cut the 50 and Happy Birthday text in gold pearlescent card with a purple shadow. The medallion has 6 layers alternating in shades of purple, lilac and gold pearlescent card, toppped off with a lilac jewel in the centre of the smallest layer. I really love using the medallion stamps, as the end result is different every time.

Tickled Pink Challenge

Here's a couple of cards I have made for the Tickled Pink Challenge. I just love working with the Dolly Mama stamps, the set I've got has interchangable heads, shoes and sayings to go on the shopping bag, so many options and so little time!! I have recently discovered the Pink Petticoat website and downloaded my first lot this weekend, think I will be back there again soon!! Okay so I'm new to this game of blogging but thought I had the rotate option with camera software sussed - obviously not!! Will try harder next time....

Brand New Blog

Have just set my blog up. Haven't had a blog before, too much trouble trying to fight for my turn on the family computer but am lucky enough to have my own laptop now !! I have been reading other people's blogs recently and been very inspired by them. I have starting using craft bits that I was going to get rid of, you know the things that you just have to buy at craft fairs and then when you get home you think 'What did they do with that?' Surely it can't be just me that does that? Will uploads some pictures soon.
Happy crafting.....
