Cupcake Inspirations 380

I headed over to Cupcake Inspirations this week looking for inspiration and I found it ! 

My stock of emergency birthday cards is getting low so decided to break out the water colour wonder set by Altenew and make a card using the colours.It didnt look right on a white card base and then I happened to notice what the cupcakes were sitting on so went with a coloured card base instead.
A few sequins and wink of stella to make it sparkle a bit and another card for the box done! 

Thank you for taking the time to look I really do appreciate it!

Muse DT 188

My turn to be designer over at Muse !!!!

A dear friends birthday is coming up so just had to make one for her this week , decided to use my favourite at the moment colours of versamagic sea breeze.I  also rubbed it over my bottom mat to so they all matched and then added my diecut flower and leaves before adding bit of bling and liquid pearls to finish it off  .

I hope my card will inspire you to part this week and can't wait to see your creations in the gallery!

MCV 65

This week Kimberley at the Muse Christmas Challenge has given us a really cute and fun card!
I took my inspiration from her white card and circle to begin with, and then i couldn't resist using my Mama Elephant penguins again I just love them they are so versatile !!

To mimic Kimberleys snow angel I had my penguin (complete with red woolly hat like Kimberley's monkey ) jump into the snowdrift (he was meant to slide down it but I moved it by mistake and you would have seen the glue so now hes jumping!!) but I actually think it looks like he is jumping on top of the sentiment now....what do you think??
I versamarked some snowflakes on before applying my blue chalk but didn't like it much so added some 'hailstones' with liquid pearls.

 Well I am amazed how much of my Christmas cards I have made now which will leave me plenty of time to do my 'special' ones .

Thank you for taking the time to look

Stamping sensations

*** One for The Boys ***

                                                               (stamping sensation)

   I had to make a birthday card for a friend of ours and found it a bit challenging so fell back on a favourite  technique of mine ...two colours one image !.
As our friend is an avid football fan made it in his teams colours .For the life of me can't remember who makes the image but know its from a set! and the sentiment is an Altenew one
Thanks for taking the time to look


Cupcake Inspirations 376

I always seem to do the same challenges every time so this week I headed over to the paper playful  site that has a list of challenges for every day of the week and all styles, and found the 
Cupcake Inspirations  challenge which had the above inspiration photo .
I really wanted to work on my watercolouring as I am pretty dire at it so thought I would give it a go with a SSS set and some MFT ink pads to make the colours deeper 
As you can see the watercolouring is still a work in progress !!
 Thanks for taking the time to look !

Muse DT 184

Hi there can't believe that this week is Muse's 184th challenge!!!

I had made two cards for the  Altenew challenge and decided to keep this watercolour wonder one for this weeks challenge.

I used versamagic sea breeze  ink to make the flower I thought that I wouldn't see the markings( and would have to do second generation stamping )  just using the same in on top again but it worked beautifully and stood out perfectly !!! and I even managed to shade it around the matting paper using my distress tool.

The leaves are Memento bamboo ink and the sentiment is from Altenew too.

 A few of you have being asking me whereIi get my linen card from and just wanted to say that I get it from my local paper mill where the sell off their excess in a onsite craft shop .This linen card is meant to be for weddings but I love it for all of my special projects !!.

I do hope you will join us this week and can't wait to see your  creations in the gallery!
Many thanks for taking the time to look

Sevenhills Craft Challenge

I thought I would also join in with this months fun challenge over at Seven hills Craft Challenge where they have given us this great layout!
I struggled at first but then I used Lawn fawns Lets Bokeh set for the circles (or portholes!)and the sentiment and checked with the rules and I think Im ok to use clearly besotted robots for the centres.... is that right Tara??? they fitted so perfectly!
I then coloured them with promarkers and flexmarkers and added the dotted background in what I hope looks like party confetti! 

Thank you for taking the time to look
