I do apologise for the briefness of this post but you cannot get Bourbon biscuits in Australia and i am attempting to make my own this evening and didn't want to miss the deadline on a couple of the challenges.

Wish me luck! i craft considerably better than i cook but i really fancy a Bourbon biscuit LOL

Sexy Easter Card

I also decided to make this an Easter themed card to match another challenge and i have recently purchased the perfect cheeky image and i have been dying to use her.

Here's my card

Lilac and Lace Wedding card

Hi everyone,

There was another couple of challenges i wanted to take part in and they required me to use lace. Well lace is not something i normally use but when i thought about what time of card to make Wedding came to mind.

This being the case i purchased a gorgeous image from Sassy Studio Designs (one of four oops) and she is just gorgeous and would work perfectly. One of the challenges required you to use the colour Lavender and this soft purple just works so well i think. Plus i knew i had some perfect papers from Pink Petticoat and the rest kind of came together.

Because the image itself was so gorgeous i didn't want to do a lot too it. I coloured the flowers on her dress and bouquet with V17 and then i put some clear star Gelly roll on the flowers and the mid section of her dress and then added some tiny gems to the flowers on her dress and in her hair to give it a bit more WOW factor.

I hope you like what i created.

Have a great week crafting

Happy St Patrick's Day

Hi everyone,

Hope you have all had a great weekend, almost over for me now but i did get one of my challenge cards finished and pretty timely too considering it is for St Patrick's Day.

For this card i wanted to combine a couple of challenges and one was a sketch challenge. I had a look at the sketch and got an idea what i wanted to do. Green is not a common colour for me to use so i didn't really have anything and i knew i would need several patterned papers to complete the sketch. So i went on good old Google to see what digital papers were out there. I found some for free online via the following blog which was a real added bonus Starynight.

I have been eyeing up the digital stamps from Sassy Studio Designs and finally purchased some and one was their St Patrick's Day image, its a great fun image and i really enjoyed colouring it. I didn't want to overload the card with green so i coloured the drink as Guinness in good old fashioned brown.

The sentiment i typed up on my computer, had a play around with the text size and font and them cut out using Spellbinders Dies.

Hope you like my card

For this card i used...
Patterned Papers from Stary night Blog

Spring fresh Mothers Day Card

Hi Everyone,

Well this card i made to enter in a couple of challenges. It is not Mothers Day in Australia as yet but it never hurts to get started early.

I wanted this to have a spring feel so went with a colour scheme of yellow and green with white pearlescent card and it does have a nice fresh feel i think. I wanted the image to have flowers and to be suitable for Mothers Day and i came across some printed LOTV images i got free in a card making magazine a while back. I coloured this in with Copics and Gelly rolls. This was not suitable blending paper/or card so i just used single colours and highlighted certain areas with my clear star Gelly roll to give it a little sparkle where the light hits.

I used a sketch by Charisma cardz which is there challenge this week and i just slanted my yellow rectangular section slightly to give it a little bit of difference, it just looked a bit blocky to me and we all know i like to be different :)

I adhered it all together and here is my finished card...

For this card i used...
White Pearlescent card stock
Yellow and Green Patterned papers by Frencheville
LOTV Image (this came free in a magazine)
XCut die
Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch
Clear Gems
Green, Red and Clear Star Gelly Rolls
Copics E57, YR16, Y18, YG17, 0

Oriental Criss Cross Card

Hi Everyone,

Work has been really busy and i have sadly been giving myself headaches due to eye strain and figured it was best to take a break for a week or two from my crafting, wasn't easy i can tell you but work does pay my craft habit so could hardly give that a break ha ha.

Well my mum bless her has resolved my cutting issues and brought me an A3 paper cutter, I think she was surprised at how excited i was over this but it will make my life easier but have to try and figure out how to store it as it is fairly large. It is really good, i had to try it out with some scrap paper of course just to get a feel for it :) but its really good and you can purchase different shaped rotary blades etc so should keep me amused for a while :)

Well i wasn't really sure what the theme of my card was going to be, i decided on another Criss Cross because i really quite like them at the moment and of course i would get to play with my new toy. So i just rifled through my paper stash and i came across some Japanese papers i brought a while ago at one of the craft shows and i liked it so that started me off. I also brought some oriental girl stamps pretty much when i took up card making but sadly have barely used them so i picked out one of those.

I cut my card base and then i decided to border punch the one side of the triangles to give it a prettier feel and then i adhered my precut patterned paper triangles. I then stamped my image on the Copic card and coloured her in using my Copics and my gold metallic Gelly roll. I cut her into a circle using my spellbinders die. I adhered white ribbon across the front and then adhered my image. I made a bow using the same ribbon and adhered to the card and attached a black and white button. I then adhered some small white ribbon roses.

I wanted the insert to bit a little more fancy so cut out two labels from white card and pearlescent gold paper and adhered them together i then cut out some butterflies using a punch from the patterned paper and adhered them to the white card.

Here's my card

My fancy insert :)
