Tulips



   This fortnight the theme for the Crafty Cardmakers challenge is spring into Spring.
   Taking several sheets of the same image from Hunkydory's Little Book of Flowers I decoupaged the vase of tulips and matted it onto deep pink mulberry paper. I wrapped two rows of narrow pink satin ribbon round the lower edge of grey card and matted this onto white card. After attaching the image I cut Happy Birthday from the mulberry paper and attached this between the band of ribbon.

   Cute Card Thursday - spring fever

Wild roses

   This week's challenge at Crafting From The Heart is being sponsored by


and as always the theme is anything goes.




   I have not used any digi stamps but have made use of stash and  a die that I have had for some time.
   Using Tattered Lace's Florentine over the edge set 2 die twice I cut a lacy circle that stayed within the front of a square based card. Masking off the rest of the card I then sprayed the circle using Crafter's Companion iridescent spray and sparkle and then folded back the front half of the card. The papers and topper are from Kanban's 'The Language of Flowers' kit and I outlined the papers with strips of silver. I then attached a handmade flower to the lower left hand corner and added Stickles to its centre.

Special delivery



   For the QKR Stampede challenge this week the theme is anything goes with the twist of congratulations. A neighbour asked me to make a card for a medical friend of hers who has just had a baby boy so I thought this image was just the thing. It is called special delivery (number 14010) and I coloured it using Promarkers. I teamed it with the sentiment it's a boy (number 14009) and matted it onto blue card. The spotty background paper was matted onto the same coloured card and then white card. The embellishments were printed using the Tattered Lace CD ROM charisma bunny.

Puppy mail



   Today sees the start of a new challenge at Creative Corner the theme of which is for the dogs.
   I matted some left over paper previously printed for an earlier card onto black and then white card. The digi called puppy happy mail is from Crafty Paws and was coloured using Spectrum Noir pens. After cutting it out using a Spellbinders square die I matted it onto black card which I had cut out using a Tattered Lace pearl square die.
   I cut three mini cards using a Spellbinders label four die, inked the edges using a red Promarker pen and wrote on each before placing them inside three mini envelopes which I had punched. After attaching them to the card I added a small peel off heart to the topmost one.
