Floral Abundance with Cute Card Thursday.

We have a new challenge today at Cute Card Thursday, where the theme is 'Floral'.

Now whilst this card may not be exactly cute, it is definitely floral!

It is pretty big - 8 x 8 inches, and i have to say it took 'blooming' ages to colour it all!

The image that you can see came from a Colorista A4 colouring pad, and I coloured everything in with my Colourblend pencils.

It is pretty tropical.....I could do with a bit of that in my life right now!

Hope you like it :-)

Sneak Peak - Sara's Shabby Chic Butterfly Cards

 Sara's next Signature Collection is coming out soon, and I am delighted to show you some sneak peaks of this great collection.

I'm focussing on the butterflies today, starting with this box card  which I made using the gorgeously delicate butterfly dies and a page from the 6x6 paper pad with I have over stamped with a sentiment from the stamp set.
 Here's another card featuring some more of the papers , the butterfly and the little tag dies which go with the sentiments.
And finally some more butterflies and paper and an embossing edge folder which I used on Coredinations card.

My cards will be winging their way to the USA for the HSN launch now, but I hope you will check out Hochanda to see what  some of my talented DT friends have made for the UK launch.

Thanks for visiting.

No Patterned Papers at Cute Card Thursday.

Well we have another challenge at Cute Card Thursday, where the theme is 'no patterned papers'. Now this sounds simple enough at first, but when I look at my cards it is quite surprising how many of them do have patterned papers...... even if it is just a sneaky little mat here and there!

So I made this card, using my tonic dies and three colours of plain card.

I really like the stark clean look against the delicate fairy.

So now we would really like to see what you create, so don't forget to hop over to Cute Card Thursday and add you creations.

Thanks for visiting.

Fab n Funky - Sponsored by Digistamps for Joy

 Hi there.

I am back with a new card for Fab n Funky, sponored by Digistamps for Joy, who sponsored this lovely image.

I reconnected with some old friends, in the form of my Promarkers for this challenge, and I had a real blast colouring in this image.
In fact, I had so much fun with it that I made up my card without following the challenge theme, which was Bingo. Slap on the wrist for me!!

I hope that you can do a better job of following this week's theme than I did, and I am looking forward to seeing all your creations on te Fab n Funky blog.

Bye for now and thanks as always for visiting.

Wedding Bells Edgeable - the final bit of romance for this week!

And this is my last 'lovey dovey' sample for this week....I think I am all romanced out for now!

This card features another die form the Crafters Companion edgeables range and, although it is actually wedding bells, I think you could get away with this for Christmas too.

Once again the Luxury card stock has come out to play.....if you get a chance to grab some, go for it as there is absolutely loads in the pack.

My wedding bells have been used as both an 'edge' and a standalone die cut, and I have finished off with a die cut sentiment from another one of Sara'a Signature ranges.

So there we are - enough of Valentines...bring on Easter! Watch this space!

Thanks as always for visiting.

Happy Valentines Day - Graceful Heart Edgeable

It's February 14th, so here I am with another Crafters Companion Edgeable die for you too see.

Ince again a very simple card, but this shows that these dies don't just have to be used for edges. You can cut through the bottom part and separate them so they can be used independently.

Aren't the delicate filigrees in these hearts gorgeous?

They would look really good with a bit of contrasting backing paper mounted behind them too.

I have used a combination of luxury card stock and centura pearl card for this sample, which gives a really sturdy card.

By the day - the little decorative corners that you see also come with the heart die.....a perfect little extra for a little bit of wow factor.

Thanks for visiting today.
