Yorkie Decoupage Card

A quick and easy card for a friend's birthday. I used cream speckle card for the card base, the dog is Paper Nation, and the backing paper, sentiments and flowers are from Polkadoodle's Sugar Birdies CD. I'm entering it in the Crafty Pad's challenge, which is to use buttons.

Wedding Card

For this card I used white pearlised card, with a piece of blue pearlised card on top embossed with the divine swirls cuttlebug folder. The birds are Quickcutz dies on white pearl card. The flowers are from a spray of artificial flowers with pearl brads added to the centre.

Home Is Where The Dog Is

I made this card for Lee-anne's sketch challenge no 4 at Trimcraft, I've also entered it into the Trimcraft current challenge which is quotes and sayings. I used a photo of our Jack Russell Jasper, fast asleep in his bed. I typed the wording and printed it onto the background paper, the bones and the little dog by his food bowl are stamped and embossed with clear powder. The large bone and the sentiment is from a scrap book kit.

Card for C.R.A.F.T Challenge

This weeks challenge over at C.R.A.F.T is to follow a sketch, and this is my entry. The backing paper is a freebie from Christine's blog Busy Bees Craft Place which can be found here, it's a lovely blog so pop over and take a look.

I used pink pearl card for the card base, and as backing for the butterfly. I cut the butterfly on my cuttlebug and added stick on gems. I sewed fabric rosebuds to the centre of the paper flowers, and the sentiment is from Polkadoodle's Sugar Birdies CD with an extra flower on top cut from the main backing paper.

Lee-Anne's Sketch Challenge at Trimcraft

This is my entry for Lee-anne's 2nd sketch challenge at Trimcraft. The backing paper is from Funky Hand's Paper Blossom download, the guinea pig is Paper Nation, I embossed the central piece of backing paper on my cuttlebug and added an organza ribbon.

Knitters' Birthday Cards

For these cards I knit the little jumpers and glued beads onto cocktail sticks to make the knitting needles.

This one was made for Lee-Anne's sketch challenge at Trimcraft last week. I used purple pearlescent card, and the backing paper is from Funky Hand's Paper Blossom download. I cut the felt flowers on my cuttlebug and added buttons to the centre. The wool along the bottom is some fancy yarn from my stash.

The backing paper for this one is from Funky Hand's Now That's Funky CD, and the green pearl paper I embossed on my cuttlebug. The Happy Birthday is from a packet of confetti from Sainsbury's.

For the next two cards I again used backing paper from the Now That's Funky CD, and cuttlebug felt flowers. I inked the edges of the round pieces of backing paper and embossed the ones behind the jumpers.
