The Belle of the Ball Birthday Girl card (Saturated Canary image)

Hi crafty friends,

I'm back with my last card of the day, I hope you've enjoyed seeing them all if you've gotten the chance (or wanted to hehe).

I tried to colour this gorgeous image from Saturated Canary as best as I could. I'm no expert so it's very tricky sometimes when there's a lot of folds in her dress like that, I'm still learning with every image I colour. I added a light grey around the image so she pops out a bit. The beautiful pearl flourish and teal flower is from Flourish with a Bling

Chickie Love card (DigiStamp Boutique image)

Hi crafty friends,

My 3rd card today is this one using an adorable image from DigiStamp Boutique. This shape was so easy to create with one of my die cuts - I first die cut my plain white card paper and then die cut my patterned paper and stuck it to the front. Before I took the die away I sponged the red ink around the outside which then leaves the lovely clean border. The Scrabble sentiment comes from Ditzie Designs and the pearls are from Flourish with a Bling.

Lilac, Purple and Teal shaped Girly Card (Make it Crafty image)

Hi crafty friends,

I thought I'd try out a snazzy new shape using my die cuts. This took me a while to arrange as I wasn't happy with it at first so I had to keep cutting/moving bits and now I love how it turned out!

A Teddy Bear's Picnic Easel Card (Pink Gem Designs image)

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all well and enjoying some sunshine.

I can't wait to show you all my new cards, I have 5 today! 

This first card I created as an easel card and kept it quite simple. I carefully cut the chevron paper, inked it and then layered it on top of scraps to give the bottom layer some added dimension. I love using scraps rather than foam tape when it is a larger area as it's good for the environment and cheap hehe! When I say scraps I mean the packaging of embellishments that is quite a sturdy paper so only requires a couple of layers.

The cute little image is from Pink Gem Designs and the Scrabble sentiment is from Ditzie Designs. The pearls are from Flourish with a Bling.


I am entering this card into the following challenges:

A Gem of a Challenge - More than 1 fold
C.R.A.F.T. - Birthday
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper - Anything goes with patterned paper  
Creatalicious - Butterflies
Incy Wincy Designs - The great outdoors
