Happy Birthday Deb

Happy Saturday Everyone,

This is the card I made for my friend Deb for her Birthday. If things go according to plan she has now received this card at a morning tea we are having for her and it is safe to post these pics!

I have combined a Teapot Shaker card (yes they are real tea leaves!) with a step card. This is the first time I've tried either type of card. The pattern for the teapot came from the latest Magnolia Magazine (Cosy Autumn).

The papers I've used are by papermania along with SU Pink Pirouette cardstock. The edges are inked with a colorbox chalk pad.

I also stamped the Magnolia cup and Tilda's Shirt in the same pattern paper. The steam rising from the pot is a piece of acetate with stickles applied to it. This little "Celebrate" embellishment has been in my stash for ages and was a perfect fit.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:-

Charisma Cardz Challenge - Anything Goes
Wild Orchid Challenge - Ribbon & Bows

Colour Create - All White Challenge

Hi Everyone - time for the next Colour Create Challenge and this week it was my turn to choose a picture for inspiration. I search the web everywhere looking for a pic and came up with this picture to inspire everyone in an all white challenge. Not everyone's fav but they do look lovely especially for Wedding and Christmas cards. The optional extra is embossing!

Here is the picture I chose for the challenge:-

This week we are sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs and the image I've used is call "Bella Bride". Isn't she beautiful? Sassy Studio are giving the lucky winner of this weeks challenge 4 images of their choice. I decided to make a an easel card this week as they are always nice for special occasions.

I've sprayed my white paper white pearl glimmer mist for extra sparkle and added stickles to the distressed edges. I've used a bucketful of jewels too and added some pale pink jewels to her dress. My image is coloured with copics and raised slightly on foam dots. The embossing folders I've used are tiny hearts and roses - both by Cuttlebug.

Thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you'll join in the challenge! Be sure to stop by Colour Create to check out the cards made by the wonderful Design Team ~ they are beautiful.

This is also my entry for the Bizzy Becs Customer Challenge - Spring and the Stamp Something - September Digi Challenge.

Natalie's Birthday Card

Hi Everyone ~ Hope you had a great weekend,

This birthday card was made for my Neighbours DIL Natalie. The image is by Inky Antics - I've had it for ages but thought I'd get it out again! The papers are from the Provo Citrus Stack Paper Pad - along with some white and black cardstock.

My image is coloured with Copics and has touches of spica pen - for added glam and some dimensional magic to the top of the glass and bubbles. As you can see in the picture below aslo.

I also had this martini glass button that I really wanted to add - so I've used it in the centre of the card.

The pretty blue pearls and silver flowers are from Creations in Paper at Montville. The ribbon is from my stash and the flower charm I picked up at the papercraft show from my2angels.

I'm going to enter this card in the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Anything Goes.

Colour Create Christmas Cracker

Welcome to another Colour Create Challenge! This week the colours Red Cream or White and Gold have been chosen by the lovely and talented DT Liz who just so happens to have some lovely candy available at the moment too :). Once again our we are sponsored by Michelle's Scrapbooking so pop on over and check our her wonderful store!

The picture that Liz has chosen to inspire us with is this one of the gorgeous red bedroom.

Liz's optional extra this week is use a Christmas or an Oriental Theme - the choice is yours!!

I have used a card template to create this Christmas Cracker shaped card and it can be found here at cardmaking

This lovely Christmas Paper with glitter embossing was from Making Memories and I have decided to add Edwin to the top of the cracker so not to cover my pattern paper. Edwin is colour with copics with the white parts of his hat and suit cover with clear spica pen and the buckles coloured using the gold spica pen.

I have simply added the gold ribbon to each end of the cracker and made a tag using the Stamp It "Have Yourself" stamp.
