The Sugar Bowl Challenge 11

I have just made this birthday card which I am entering for The Sugar Bowl Challenge 11 (Kathy's Sketch + pearls). The Sugar Nellie stamp is 'Poise' by Leanne Ellis, coloured with Letraset markers. The patterned papers are all HOTP and the green and brown card shapes were cut with Nestabilities label dies. I used a rose punch on the corners and added a string of pearls tied into a bow, dried flowers and a couple of gems to finish off my card.

Good Luck Card

I have just made this card to wish a friend well in finding a new job after she was made redundant recently. I am also entering this into Papertake's latest challenge which is to use scraps, as I have had the blue card circle in my bits box since I got my Cuttlebug, when I sat down and cut out lots of different sized circles, so it must be 2 years now! The bit of blue card I stamped the words onto has also been hanging around for a couple of years and was part of a double sided sheet by Crafty Secrets.

New Job Card

I have just made this card for a friend about to start a new job after being made redundant recently, so it fits in nicely with the Secret Crafter Saturday 'New Beginnings' challenge. The embellishments are all from the Anna Griffin Sierra collection and the cat and dog stamp is by Inca.

Happy Birthday - A Spoon Full of Sugar

Here is my card for the latest challenge over at 'A Spoon Full of Sugar' who are celebrating their first birthday. My Tilda image is coloured with Promarker & Sakura Sparkle pens and cut out with a scallop punch. It is matted onto a piece of green card cut out with a Nestabilities label die and a piece of green patterned paper from my bits box. I don't remember where the sentiment stamp was from but the flowers are Flora Doodles.

Good Luck Card

My latest card is a good luck card in the shape of a handbag. The template and paper is by Pink Petticoat. I am still tempted to put more bling on the front but suspect the single gem, flower and padlock charm are more than enough. The inside is decorated with more clear gems clear embossed stamped butterflies (Elusive Images). These were stamped onto glossy cardstock coloured with blue ink. The sentiment labels are Nestabilities labels.
