Just a quick entry today as I am so so busy and I have fimo things to make!!! This is a card that I made for a friend in work! I love the colours! It was simple to make! The glitter letter are K & Co the mirror butterfly I got from work and the papers are Polka Doodles from the new CD!!! The size is DL!!!
This weeks challenge at Polka Doodles was set by Nettie and her challenge was Monochromatic ( I hope thats right ) We had to use one colour but we could use different shade of that colour! Given the lovely weather we have had recently and all the fields I see everyday I have used green! I cut a scallop card using wild card on the cricut at 5 3/4 then chopped it into 2 and folded one side in half, I have then cut anothe slightly smaller from one of the awesome papers from the new CD All around and Everywhere ( its ace ) Next was some flowers from the same CD in shades of green finished off with a sentiment and some cute buttons! As you may have noticed acetate is my friend lately and there are more to come when I can pop them up here, anyway I have added a super cute tiny flower as a dangler with a spotty green brad from my stash! Check out the new CD it launched today on create and craft it is sooooo pretty!!!
I had this tiny card blank left over from a kit that Konrad bought me ages ago but it was so cute I couldn't bring myself to throw it away! So I have used a scrap of DCWV rockstar paper and just cut a 2" skull in 2 different types of gold card! Done!!!
Sometimes I wonder if I am cut out for blogging! I am so behind this week! This is my card that should have been posted friday for the animal magic Polka Doodles challenge! As the title would suggest better late than never!!! It is a simple card using one of the fab backgrounds from the back to nature CD and the super cute sheep!!! I have done a little bit of decoupage to add some dimension, and clever Nikky has even considered the back of our cards when designing this CD so I have put the sheeps bottom on the back for a finishing touch!!! Don't forget to check out Nikky and the amazing new CD on create and craft Friday at 10am!!
It is time for another Polka Doodles challenge! This week has been set by Kerry and it was to create a wedding card using the love and cherish CD!!! Now I know I keep banging on about how fab this CD is but its true I just love it!!! I have decided to use the grey and silver papers as they are so subtle and elegant. The card base is A4 folded plain white card, I have they layered a piece of grey card that I have punched with my MS punch and ontop of that is a grey rose background paper with has also been punched. Using the cut off from my rose paper I have punched the edge then using and acordian fold made a paper flower! To embellish the flower I have cut out 3 butterflies using my tonic studios punch, I have cut 2 in the solid grey and one in a filigree background paper from the CD. To my butterfly I have added some pearls on string and some liquid pearls fabric paint! The sentiment is my first competer generated sentiment, I have used the title of the CD and it has then been printed onto the filigree paper and matted onto the grey card. Finally to finish of the card I have used some pretty ribbon and a diamante buckle! Fab challenge Kerry!!!
I haven't made many cards over the last few weeks as I have had some family problems and I have been ill blah blah blah!!! But I am getting back on track I have decided to ignore the people causing the problems and I am focusing on me and my husband!!! So here is my first card in a while and I have kept it simple. No cricut, no big shot and no stamps! The card is C6 with a gold microflute card layered ontop, then onto that I have added a damask paper that I bought in Devon! I have used a cut off from the gold microflute and layered some gold hearts that I have had hanging around for a while. I used different depths of foam pads and some are just stuck down with tacky glue! The greeting is made up of some super cute gold letters from Making Memories! I hope you like it x x x
