Scallop Stand Up Card

Sweet and simple little card here to enter into a couple of challenges.
Black, White & 1 other, is the colour challenge over at Allsorts Challenge Blog
Cute Card Thursday has a challenge too, No designer papers. How's that!
Why not have a go aswell....

I've used Memento ink on this Magnolia stamp and coloured in with copic markers. (see colour list below)The scallop circle is Spellbinders and on the white circles I have used my InkEssentials blending tool with Versa Magic's 'Pixie Dust' chalk ink pad to soften the edges. (a bit heavy handed tonight though) Finished off with stickles 'Frosted Lace' and Prima flowers.

Not many markers used for this one!

Of course the bow was made simply with the BOW EASY.

Round & Round Boy Card

For my son's birthday I decided to have my first go at a step card. He has always loved dinosaurs and dragons, so when I came across this digi image I new it would be perfect.

I've coloured with copic markers, black spica pen and hightlighted with a white gel pen.

I cut the present and balloons with my Cuttlebug dies and used the Spellbinders ovals for the image. The balloons are on wire to make them stand out.
Here is the side view of the card.

I have paper pierced the box the digi image is in. Copic colours used; BG0000, BG000, BG01, BG05, BG23, G20, G24, B0000, B12, B14, B24, YG03,

I also made a pull out money/gift voucher pouch to match.

This card is for 2 challenges.

The first is Charisma Card Challenge #21, Going around in CIRCLES.

The second is a brand new challenge from Inlinkz, see details below.

Summer Tent Card with Charms

Colured with copic markers is Strawberry Tilda. I've used papers from October Afternoon with an assortment of flowers, charms, brads & ribbons from my handy craft stash.

What's in the box?

This is my very first explosion card. When you lift off the lid the sides fall down as shown in the picture below. Thay can be a little time consuming, but the finished product looks awesome.
Several challenges all rolled into this card.

Papertake Weekly Challenge - Say it with Flowers
Pixie Dust Studio Pixie Challenge

This is a picture of the box standing up open.

This is Noble Tilda, surrounded with various flowers (glittered with Kindy Glitz), Maya Road pins, and two Magnolia butterflies, which I have stuck onto long pieces of acetate to have them flying free. I have used Websters Papers, cardstock and finished off some edges with a Martha Stewart border punch.
Copic markers I used for Tilda & butterflies

Another Mix of Challenges

I enjoy the extra challenge when mixing a few different ones into one project.

I've kept it simple. Paper's are from Papermania, Kaisercraft pearls, Magnolia garland, Prima flowers, white blossoms and ribbons from my pile at home. Martha stewart punch. I used my spellbinder dies to create the ovals and ink blending tool around the edge of the white oval. Plain white craft bag from Spotlight I decorated to coordinate with the card.

Back at last!

After being away with work commitments and unable to get to a computer, I've been missing in action for awhile. But of course while away I did take many of my supplies with me, and lucky I did. I forgot to take my mobile phone charger and a lovely lady let me borrow hers. Here is the thankyou card I made for her in appreciation for her generosity.
