Things with wings

Hi Crafters,

This weeks' challenge over at Passion for Promarkers is 'Things with Wings'  and our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps, who are offering the lucky winner a $21.00 voucher to spend in their store.


I decided to use 'Silver Fairy' by Whimsy Stamps and it's a lovely image to colour. I've used a great layout that we used at our last workshop and embossed all the different layers with various folders.  
I inked all the edges with Tim Holtz 'Antique Linen' and added lots of stickles to the wings!
I wanted the fairy to stand out so I didn't want to use any backing papers on this card.  A little bit of ribbon, pearls and buttons finished it off and I stamped the text for a change instead of using the computer.  I think I might do this a bit more, for the text and for the inserts inside - be nice to use some more stamps!

It would be great if you could join in with the challenge and don't forget to say which Letraset products you've used.  There are some great samples from the Design Team on the blog as well.

I've also got some pics to show you of my brilliant new ribbon storage.  I'd seen something similar on Pinterest and showed the ideas to my Dad and guess what, he made some for me!!
I'm so chuffed with them and I couldn't wait to fill them lol.  I've kept similar colours together and they now take pride of place on my Craft table!  I'll be putting ribbon on all my cards from now on as they'll no longer be in a tangled mess in my basket!!

Anyway, I hope you all have a great week and I'll be back again soon!
Hugs, Karen xx

4 Legged Friends

Good morning crafters!

I'm back with my card for this week's challenge at Passion for Promarkers which is '4 Legged Friends'.
Our sponsor this week is A Day for Daisies and they are offering the lucky winner a $12.00 voucher to spend in their online store.


I've used one of their gorgeous images called 'Hello baby giraffe' and he is so cute!  It was such a lovely image to colour in and I even found some papers that looked like the colours of a giraffe!!

I tried to make it a CAS card but then I thought it needed some ribbon, then I added some flowers and before I knew it, it wasn't a CAS card any more -   I just can't do it!  Oh well, I tried!
I used one of Sue Wilson's gorgeous embossing folders called 'Ditsy Daisy' and the wavy border die is by Spellbinders.  A bit of glitter and pearls finished it off!!  Went the whole hog in the end didn't I?
Must try harder next time - I will make a CAS card soon!
Why not have a go and join in with this challenge, just remember to say which Letraset product you've used on your creation.
I'd also like to enter my card in the 'Anything Goes' challenge at Crafting from the Heart
and the 'Add Glitter' challenge at A Day for Daisies dropping by and I'll see you soon,
Hugs, Karen xx
