Moving Along with the Times - Challenge #65

Just a quick post with my entry for the MAWTT challenge.  This week was a 'To Do List' and you had to use at least 3 items off the list.  My card uses 2 different patterned papers (both DCWV), glitter (don't think I ever make a card without a bit of sparkle lol) and heat embossing. My card has a dual purpose as it's also an acceptance to a wedding invite, that reminds me better start looking for a dress! Unfortunately it doesn't show in the photo but the RSVP is on an acetate on top of the card.

Items: 4x4 white card blank, DCWV Mat Stack, Turquoise glitter, Black Stazon, Clear Sparkle embossing powder, Inkadinkado Flourish Stamp, glue and foam pads.

Crafters Companion - Beatrix Potter

I'm like a bus....no posts for ages and then several all at once..lol.  This is my entry for the Crafters Companion Beatrix Potter challenge. I have been treating myself to far too many new crafting goodies recently so haven't yet been able to buy something from the Beatrix Potter range so I have used the free download from the Crafters Companion website. Decoupage really isn't my thing (I'm a Stampaholic) but I have had a go as it was included in the freebie and would really love to know what you think.

Beatrix Potter Entry
Items: Beatrix Potter Winter Wonderland freebie download, blue pearlescent card, navy card, scalloped circle nestabilities, snowflake punch, glossy accents, pale blue liquid pearls, fiskars edge punch, silver rickrack, clear and midnight fine blue glitter

Crafters Companion - Challenge 4

Ooh I have been busy this week, I have managed to make a couple of cards!  I was able to kill two birds with one stone as I was planning to make an 'Aunty' card for baby Elliot to give my Sister-in-Law and then having read the latest challenge was able to use the sketch and my new Popcorn Bear stamp set :)

Challenge 4 Entry
Items: Popcorn Bear Stamp Set, Memento Tuxedo Black Inkpad, My trusty ProMarkers, Magenta Stickles, Sakura Gelly Roll Pens, Aunt stamp from a Woodware set, Nestabilities, Cuttlebug Happy Birthday Embossing Folder, Ribbon from my stash, silver pink and navy card from my stash and a square white card blank.

The other card I made was a 'Sister' card, not sure if it's an easel card, sidestep card or quite what it is as I didn't use a template but instead scored, folded, and cut until I came up with this:
Items: Sugar Nellie Stamp, DCWV Late Card Stack, Sakura Pens, Stickles, Woodware flower punches, Martha Stewart half daisy edge punch, stick on gems,nestabilities, ProMarkers and a plain A5 white card blank.

I've made some cards :)

OMG! It's been nearly a month since my last post but I have been really busy. I've been on holiday to Norfolk and Wales but I have still had time to make some cards for a competition in Cardmaking and Papercraft. I didn't get time to enter all the categories as I had to keep an eye on Elliot who kept escaping from his ball pit. Pictures below...


...and the little pest himself (mid escape)
