I got time tonight to finally sit down and craft so I made 2 cards.
My first one if for the Just Christmas and Birthdays challenge and I have used a digi image of a yummy cupcake that I got from Penny (creations by penny). If you haven't visited Penny before then get yourself over there and check out her digi's for sale.
I coloured the cupcake with my Copics then added some glitter crystal lacquer to the strawberry and icing. I had never used crystal lacquer before I won some a few weeks ago in Lorraine (Coldwaters) blog candy and now I find myself wanting to use it on everything lol.
Papers are DCWV and Smirk and the flowers are digi's from Fred She Said. These ones are from the Polka Dotty Set. I cut them out then snip in between the petals, turn them over and use my embossing tool on the back of the petals to make them curl, then turn them face up again and push my embossing tool in the centre so the petals lift up and it also helps them stick to the card better too :)
My other card is for a good few challenges so I will list them all at the end.
For this one I used a cute House Mouse image that I got a long time ago in a blog candy win.
My papers are a mix of Basic Grey, DCWV and the yellow one is a digi paper from Summer Driggs.
The word BABY and the baby bottle is from a Messy Rabbit stamp set. I stuck a brad through the middle of the A and attached a little baby's feet charm. Ribbon and pearls are from my stash.
Right here goes for the challenges I am entering this one into.
Stamp With Fun - Sketch
Stampin for the weekend- Anything baby
Cute Card Thursday- New Beginnings
Basic Grey- Colour Combo of Brown, Yellow and Pink and use something from Basic Grey (paper)
Stamp Something-Animal Somethings
Pollycraft- Use Animals
Pile It On- Round (there is tiny spots on my Basic Grey paper and the circles my scalloped punch made lol)
Stamptacular Sunday-Scallop Mania
Penny's Challenge- Pearls
And finally I might be pushing this a bit, but My Time To Craft's theme is On the farm. I know mice are not farmyard animals but they do run about on farms.
Ok I know I have maybe took the challenge thing a bit far lol. I think that makes it 10 challenges. I am not sure if all of these challenge blogs let you combine challenges but thought I would give it a go anyway. It's not often I combine more than 2 challenges so why not lol.
Wow that took me ages to put all those links in!
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope I haven't put you to sleep with that long post, that's if anyone has actually read this far down!
