Blog Challenges 9

Well fellow crafters, for this card I have managed to incorporate all the following challenges.

Passion for Pro Markers - For a teenager.
ABC - Underneath.
Rainbow Lady - Lets feel it.
Crafty Sentiments - Buttons.
Stamp Something - Anything goes.
Totally Gorjuss - Not square.

I started with the fairy under the Toadstool, I used Papermania fairy and a Molly Blooms Toadstool, combined with a Polkadoodle one to stamp the main image.  I thought a teenage girl would appreciate this theme. I coloured with Promarkers, and then used my Nestabilities to cut and emboss the two layers.

I then mounted these onto ribbled card stock. Added the velvet ribbon, buttons and bling to the toadstool. I then completed the whole image with the sentiment using brads to tie it all together.

Hope you like it!

Blog Challenges 8

Back again folks, with more challenges! So here goes.....

ABC - T for 2 images
I have made this card for a twitter buddy to celebrate to birth of her first grandchild. So many congratulations to Shirley n Charlie!!!!
I stamped the Crafters Companion SWALK granny and grandpa images, coloured them with promarkers, I stamped the sentiment and embossed with cosmic shimmer powder, then mounted them onto Lawrence Llewellyn-Bowen papers all on top of an 8" square card.

Passion for Pro Markers - Fit for a Princess
I couldn't do anything less than a fairytale castle, considering the fairytale wedding now could I. The image is from Papermania fantasy range of clear stamps. I used a Martha Stewart corner punch to make it more regal. Added the sentiment and mounted onto black A5 card.

Polkadoodles - Easel Card

Ever since Easel cards have been on the go I wanted a go at a twisted one, well here it is. I used an 8" card blank as the base, hunkydory kit for the decoupage and stopper, I used a contrasting handmade paper and a self adhesive butterfly for added dimension. Added a peel off label and letters into label. Was a bit pleased with this one, hope you like it.

Crafty Sentiments - Flowers
Crafters Companion - Girls Birthday
Willow's Designs - Sketch

I used a frame that was included on some disney stickers to enhance the Nellie Snellen Gorjuss girl (I love these stamps). I then mounted this onto Hunkydory embossed cream card. Added the borders, and the flowers embellishments, topped off with a birthday greeting.

I had fun doing these, hope you like them. See you next time Jax
