Pink Elephant Sketch Challenge # 16

There is a brilliant sketch this week on Pink Elephant and this is my entry for it.

The half circle is cut using Papermania Multi-Shaper, which I have had for ages and never used!

The lovely flower stamp is Hero Arts Tall Posy, Bazill Bling CS, paper from stash and ribbon I stamped with sentiment.

Roses Tilda

This card has taken me ages to make but I am quite pleased with the end result. The lovely papers are from the Papermania Signature Blueberry Hill range. I coloured Tilda with Prisma pencils and Sansador, the flowers are Prima and the leaves are Leone Em Ash punch.
I mirrored the inside and as the card is quite bulky with the ribbon and flowers I decided to make a box rather than squash it into an envelope. My first attempt at making a box, I usually buy them so I am pleased with how this one turned out.
The card is for my daughter's birthday tomorrow, hope she likes it!!

Wedding Card

Hi everyone, hope you are all well and had a good weekend despite the !!!! weather! Hopefully soon it will warm up a bit and we may even get some sunshine.

Made this card for a friend's wedding next weekend, its based on an idea I pinched from Eileen (Ikki - thanks hun!). If you haven't already paid a visit to Ikkis blog please do go and have a mosey, especially if you are a Cuttlebug lover. This card was very quick and easy to make, its just a 12 x 12 piece of paper from K&Company, wedding collection designer pad. Iv'e had this paper for ages but never really knew what to do with it until I saw Eileens beautiful creation. The sheet of paper is cut into 2 pieces and glued together and then folded in half. The hearts are done with nesties, sentiments on PC, cardstock is Bazil and the rest is from my stash.

Penny Black Birthday

Hello again, hope everyone is well and enjoying the sunshine, nice to see it back after all that rain.

Another card made over the wet weekend we had, not sure who this one will be for, probably my daughters at the end of May. Everything used on this card is from my stash, I am trying to use up the stacks of bits of paper and card that seems to accumulate and take over my craft room!

New Home

Hope everyone is well and enjoyed the Bank Holiday weekend despite the rubbish weather. Still, a good excuse to stay at home and craft!

This is one of a few cards I managed to get done over the weekend, made for my granddaughter Kimberley and her boyfriend Carl who have recently moved into a new flat. Very quick and simple, I cheated and used Penny Black stickeroos, I love these frogs, the expressions on their little faces crack me up!
