Challenge 52 at Pear Tree Designs-Stamp Something!

Ooops thought Id already updated my blog with this week's card for Pear Tree Designs...just clicked on to see that the post I had scheduled didn't work...doh!

Anyway, this week's challenge is Stamp Something! This week's sponsor is Michelle's Scrapbooking and More, who is offering a gift voucher to use in her store.
For this card, I decided to use a new stamp that hadn't been inked up, this cute turtle is a Marianne's one. I coloured him in with Promarkers and cut him out with Nesties. The paper is from a Wild Rose Studio pack, and I embossed a panel with my Cuttlebug, adding a lacy trim with my MS punch. I added some Stickles to the image for some sparkle, some Card Candy and a Craftwork Cards sentiment. As it was for my niece's birthday, I added a 6 peel-off to the bottom.

Thanks for looking

Back from my hols and Challenge 54 at Pear Tree Designs!

HI everyone, I'm back from my hols in Cyprus, what a fab time we had!!! Missing the sunshine and my grandparents a lot...and it's taken me a while to get my cardmaking mojo back, I'm getting there though lol.

This week's challenge at Pear Tree Designs is a sketch, a nice easy one for you! Our sponsor this week is Cardmadfairys Creations, who is offering the winner 5 digis of their choice. The DT had some lovely images to play with this week, so I chose this yummy looking cupcake.
I coloured the image in with my promarkers, and added some Stickles for sparkle, and some Glossy Accents for a nice sheen to the heart. I used some papers from Dovecrafts Sugar & Spice pad, matting with brown cardstock. I added a lacy trim with a MS punch, and mounted the image with label nesties. I embellished the card with some gems from my stash, a cute bow, and a greeting from Craftwork Cards.

Thanks for looking!
