All Creatures Great and Small

I am a plank sometimes! I thought I had another card to load! This one is for Bea's 50,000 hit blog candy and also for the CCT challenge.

Bea makes beautiful cards and to celebrate 50,000 hits, she is offering up some blog candy. All you have to do is make a card with pink in it.

On CCT, the challenge this week is:

"....we would like to see some creatures on your cards...."

I've used a Penny Black image and coloured with Brushables. I've added Stickles to the icing on the cake and liquid applique to the top of the candle to give the effect of melting wax. The image has been layered onto mirricard. I've used paper from Blonde Moments layered onto mirricard and pink Bazzill c.s. and fixed this to the base card. Have run some more pink Bazzill c.s. through the Cuttlebug with Swiss Dots embossing folder and attached some pink grosgrain ribbon across the bottom. This was then fixed to the card and the image attached with foam pads. Flower was from W H Smiths and big brad is from Poppicrafts. Sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.

I think this fits the bill for both challenges!

Christmas Scene Decoration

I saw this project designed by Anna Marie nearly a year ago and have been desperate to make it ever since and have just found the time.  It is a little time consuming as you have to wait for the different mediums to dry but I'm pleased with the end result (even if it did take me nearly an hour to work out how to make the gnome's hat!)
I added some craft lights which don't show so well in the beautiful sunshine we are having today but they do make the project look very special...such a nice finishing touch.







Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...



...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.
