Baby Girl card

Yay, the weekend = more playing with my crafty stash, well once the shopping and housework is done!
Still experimenting with my new Spellbinders dies and trying out different techniques.

On this card I've done to celebrate the birth of a baby girl, I've used the two outermost dies from the Adourning Squares set, with the sentiment recessed to give dimension.

I've only added a couple of embellishments, so as not to detract from the sentiment.

I'm entering this card in the 'So Sentimental'. Wish me luck!

Polkadoodles 'April Showers' Challenge

Nothing better than a delivery of new crafty things to give a little inspiration.
Had a pile of lovely new Spellbinders dies delivered and it really didn't take long for the ideas to start flowing!
Here's the result of my first play:

I used a Humphreys Corner image from a Crafters Companion CD for the decoupage. I love Humphreys Corner pictures and have a real soft spot for using anything with Humphreys big sister Lottie, as it reminds me of my youngest daughter, Charlotte (shortened to Lottie).

I've placed the image on a die cut of the Spellbinders Grateful Lattice die and framed it with Spellbinders 5x7  Elegant Labels 4.

This card is going into the Challenge.

Cute & Cuddly Cupcake Challenge

Ok so it's been nearly a couple of weeks since my last posting. Life as working mother doesn't leave a great deal of time to do some crafting. But I've managed a bit, so this is card is being entered in the no:238 Cupcake Challenge 'Cute & Cuddly'.

I really like this one because the simpleness of having the same image stamped three times, using three different mediums has turned out to be really effective.

The image used is from Docrafts Wellington Bear collection.
1st image uses black image stamped on white card.
2nd image uses the same image stamped on cream card and coloured with Promarkers.
3rd image is stamped with Versamark, then heat embossed with white embossing powder.
Backing card is from my stash of hunkydory cardstock.

Hope you like it.

Country View Crafts' challenge - April, butterflies.

I am entering this card into the craft challenge.
For this card, I have used elements from Hunkydory's Pearl Elegance collection and mounted them on alternated Pearl Swirls foil card and acetate, to give a floating effect.
Constructive feedback would be appreciated.

Hunkydory Cards

Well been very inspired waiting for the Hunkydory Family Blockbuster to arrive, thought I'd make a few from Hunkydory kits I already have.

Just going to get started now on the new Crafters Companion monthly challenge. My first attempt at a challenge. Theme this month is FLOWERS, so that leaves the door pretty open for artistic interpretation.
Wish me luck. I'll post it on here as soon as I've done it.
