Flower Power

Hello friends,

Today I'm posting for a JustRite Friday challenge  - Flower Power, where we're challenged to use at least three flower embellishments on a card. I'm using my hand-made hydrangeas (jeez, don't ask me how long it took me to make those!!! a local scrapbook store had a tutorial on these flowers,I fell in love with them and made quite a number of these in various colours), Cricut-cut leaves, pleated background for my JustRite sentiment from the Forever Friends stamp set, Martha Stewart around-the-page punch, and here is my card. Thank you for dropping by!

Embellishments & papers

HI friends,

Today I'm posting a card for the Bellarific Friday challenge over at Stamping Bella.. The challenge was to use three embellishments and three papers, and I rolled my sleeves! So, here is my card using a lovely image Bye Bye Girl by Mo Manning in rubber - a card made for a great colleague of mine, who is changing departments shortly. I've used three papers... well... not counting the red underlying layer lol... three embellishments would be the ribbon bow, the pop-up flowers (used one of the latest Spellbinders' diecuts), and purple gemstones. Colouring mediums are Copics, Prisma pencils and some chalk ink for shadow inside the diecut frame. And here is my card. Thank you so much for dropping by!!!

Bling it!

HI friends,

Today I'm posting a card for two challenges - Mo's blog has "Anything Goes" challenge, for which I used her super-cute image Big Shoes, and I think I went a bit overboard with purple hues :-) I totally love the end result! And because it's a girl's card, I had to use as much bling, as I could possibly imagine :-) So, the second challenge I'm entering this card into is Simon Says Stamp's Glimmer and Sparkle. I've used Copics to colour the image, a bit of Prisma pencils for deep shadows, glaze pens for heels and tiny clusters of flowers, some Distress ink for the shadow around the image, and here is my card. Thank you for dropping by!

Tweet Chick

Hi friends,

Today I'm participating in Simon Says Stamps "Anything Goes" challenge and in Kraftin' Kimmie's "Show your fave" challenge. I used Kimmie's super-cute chick from the Tweets and Twitters set for a birthday card of the 4-year old's godson of my hubby. This boy is such a happy person, he just beams joy non-stop, and this chick is sooooo him :-) I fell in love with this image, and I think it is set to make a ton of great cheerful cards. I coloured the image with KOI markers (water-based), on cold press watercolour paper, used some Versamark chalk ink around the image for the shadow, added a couple of die-cuts, machine stitching, and here is my card. Thank you for stopping by!
