Criss Cross Card

My very first Criss Cross card! I've used Tilda with Peony and coloured with copics. The paper I have had for ages and I cannot even remember from where. The scallop along the crossed edges is actually the edge of some lace. The pull tab oval at the top of the insert was made from a Spellbinders die.

Christmas in July

It's Tilda unwrapping a present for Christmas in July. I have used these papers from Kaiser's Christmas range frome last year called 'Christmas Carnival' The colours work in perfectly for The Colour Throwdown Challenge #100.The ornaments and text edges, have been sparkled up with some 3D Kindy Glitz, 'glittered crystalina'. Bow was made with the fantastic bow easy and stitched to the ribbon. I used some double sided tape to ruffle the tails of the bow.

I was really pleased with the colours I used,
I've listed them below just in case you like them too.
I've also entered this card into the Fussy and Fancy Friday challenge - Christmas In July
aswell as the Pixie Dust Studio Pixie Challege - Sketch challenge with a Christmas theme.
Here is their sketch, I've turned it on it's side.

Box in a Bag


Wednesday Challenge at All That Scraps is to make a box in a bag, This is my first one and I pleasantly suprised at how easy they are to make. I have used image called Rosalie with Roses, copics to colour with and a few embellishments. The gorgeous ribbon is actually vintage seam binding from a recent prize. You can get your very own at Debbie's Etsy shop. It comes in a great range of colours too!

This bag is also for the Colour Create Challenge which is pink, peach and black.

A Pocket Full Of Posies current challenge is 'One for the Girls' and I've entered this aswell.

Summer Strawberries

Isn't it amazing just what two pieces of cardstock can create. I've used my 'daisy' embossing folder on the white cardstock aswell as inked some edges with versamark silver ink to add some dimension. Scalloped cicles are made with spellbinders die and butterflies with a punch. Pin embellishments I made, while the ribbons, flowers, Kaisercraft pearls and Papermania mini rhinestones are from my stash.

Laying Nora (digi stamp) is surrounded with bright Summer colours. Papers are Making Memories, Flutter range aswell as some cardstock. Colour theme over at The Shabby Tea Room is to combine hot pink, bright green and cool turquoise. Their challenge theme this week is 'Popsicles & Pinwheels' You'll see I made some pinwheels too and they are soooo easy. This is the inspirational image to help get you started.

Easel Birthday Card


Here is a gorgeous image from Sarah Kay called 'My Sweet Lili.' The papers I used have been hidden somewhere within the large collection of papers I'd forgotten about. I think I purchased them around 3 years ago. Papers are EK Success and edges have been inked. Heart is bordered with a cream heart shaped doily, while the smaller heart is from the centre of that same doily.
