A tent topper card

Today I have made a tent topper card as required to enter this weeks Karens Doodles Challenge. There is a tutorial on these at Splitcoast Stampers to follow. This style of card is new to me.

I have used red card as my base, printed off some heart paper from a Pink Petticoat download and the other red and pink heart paper was in a Packet of Forever Friends Decoupage.

The image is a Karens Doodles new Digi image called Bigsby in love which I have coloured in with Promarkers. The heart ribbon was from Hobbycraft. I have also used fine line silver peel offs around the edges of the paper. I have added the words "with love" in Silver peel off letters and used a spellbinders die called fancy tags to cut the tag shape with.

The card measures 14.5 x 14.5 cm I have used some light grey paper, some heart paper and some pearlescent pink card which I ran through my new heart Docrafts embossing folder and then used my Martha Stewart heart punch on the edge. The edges of the paper has been edged with silver fine line peel offs.

I punched a heart using a Fiskars heart punch in the corner of the cute square image and then matted onto darker grey paper.

I have made the roses by hand using just a punch and glue and some paper that has been turned to pink by using my promarkers but the leaves have been cut using Marianne Designs dies.

I added some pink ribbon along the bottom adding a matching bow and then decorated the inside to compliment the front.

A triple panel new baby girl card

Here is a new type of fold to me, its called a triple panel card, the template is created by the wonderful Sheila Weaver Template here

I decided I wanted to have some other images as well as a baby image so thought if I used 3 images I could show a few stages of a baby girl growing up from crawling to toddling to walking so the recipient knew what they could look forward to.

The image on the right panel is a new decoupage baby girl download called Cutie Pie and is available at Pink Gem Designs, the sentiment circles are also on the same decoupage download.
The backing paper is also available as a new digi paper download from Pink Gem. These items have only just been released and all of them are brilliant, I bought all the new digi paper packs and decoupage downloads and am hoping some more will be released.

The other two images are both from Karens Doodles which I have coloured in with Promarkers.

Love Ewe

Here is a card I have made using a freebie image from Designed 2 Delight Digital Stamps and if you enter the challenge you get a free image for the following week. I have only found this challenge blog a couple of days ago and I knew I just had to enter their challenge.

I have adapted a template by Sandy Hulsart by making my card bigger and with a circle instead of the rectangle popping out. I understand that this type of card is called a pop out stepper card, I like finding new types of folds to make cards as it makes them so different from something anyone buys in the card shops.

I have used heart paper from a Pink Petticoat download I bought ages ago. The holographic card was part of a prize I won in a challenge.

I cut the holographic letters spelling Love Ewe with my Cuttlebug Olivia alphabet dies and coloured the image in with Promarkers.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges

Happy New year - My first post since 2010

Happy New Year everyone, this is my first post of 2011, I can't believe that I have only just got around to making something for a challenge.

I donated the money required to receive the fantastic template from Cards Etc It was very easy to put together. I used just 1 sheet of A5 card and a piece of 6 x 6 patterned paper from the honey and hugs collection. I brought the chocolate sticks from Lidl, I'd never noticed them before and was worried that I wouldn't find something the right size to fit in it.

I have added pink gems and the letters to spell Freya (as that is my daughters name and I thought she'd love one) using my Wingo Zingo Sizzlit alphabet. I also made a daisy flower using two sizes of X-Cut punches and a gem in the middle and some pink ribbon. There is also a stand at the back so it sits upright, a really fantastic idea, I am so glad I saw the template on their challenge blog.
