Blog Challenges 2

Here are my cards for this weeks blog challenges!

This card is of one of my favourite childhood characters (now you know I am in my forties).

I stamped the image onto an A6 postcard and used my promarkers to colour him and the mices in. I then used my nestabilities to cut the oval. I then used weathered wood distress ink to give the misty memory feel.

I used a Marianne Design corner die on gold pearlescent card to cut and emboss the corner shapes. I backed the card with free paper from Making Cards magaizine to "lift" the saggy cloth cat and bring him to the front.

Hope you like.

This was done using three foam heart stamps (free with a mag years ago), each with a slightly different pink hue.  I then used a clarity design club stamp "wire heart" stamped with versmark and embossed in silver.

The sentiment is a "sticky" that I then flocked. All done on an A6 postcard and then mountd onto an A6 card.

Hope you like.

This card is done with Kanban cardstock and a Kanban topper, some foiled embellishments and peel offs.

The design is to "celebrate" the Chinese New Year and utilises the colour of good fortune RED!

Hope you like.

Here is bear on a card.

This is the valentine card made for my husband.
I used a free paper for the backing and a free crafters companion decoupage.

Finished off with peel off words.
