First Challenge in quite a while:)

This weeks Penny Black Saturday Challenge is buttons and bows. I love using bows and buttons anyway so I thought it would be good to enter this great challenge, as I havn't entered any for a long time.

I love this stamp, just like all Penny Black stamps:) and finally I've got round to using it. I've coloured it in with Copics, added some cute buttons, ribbon and some pretty flowers. And of course some glitter on the image:)

Thanks for looking:)

First Cards of 2009! :)

Hey everyone! Haven't been blogging for absolutley agess!!! Hope you all had a good Christmas and new year! :)

These are my first birthday cards of 2009...

They're pretty similar, but different at the same time lol. I used DCWV and Basic Grey 'Phoebe' papers for the background. I layered up the flowers and attached them together with brads. The circle stamp layered up on punched out circles and to finish off, organza ribbon, buttons and a bit of bling!

I was inspired for this card from a magazine too, i used the pink themed christmas papers from DCWV for the background.
The green circle cut out using the largest nestabilities circle.
Pink stickles, bling and punched out snowflakes to finish off!

Christmas Cones!

Still in a Chrismassy mood, I made a couple of cone shaped mini gift boxes, great for small things like sweeties...YUM...I was inspired by one in a copy of 'Cards and Crafts for Christmas' by 'Simply Cards and Papercraft'.

So far I have made two of these, a blue themed one and a pink and green one.

The pattern was from the magazine, and I just covered them with christmas patterned papers.

To finish off, some glitter down the edges, punched out snowflakes and a ribbon handle.

Star Wreath!!

Well, only a few months and then its CHRISTMAS! Woooo!!!...LOL....So i thought i'd get into the christmas spirit a bit early by making a star wreath to hang on the tree.
The star shape is the middle sized one on the star Sizzix die, cut out 10 stars in various, matching colours and patterns. Then I stuck the stars onto two card circles, made using Nestabilities, to give it a bit of strength.
And to finish I added cute buttons, a green ribbon to hang it on and drew a stitched pattern along the edge of the stars to give it that 'homemadey feel'.

The papers and the cute gingerbread man are from the Gingerbread Cookies downloadable pack. The plain circle and the scalloped circle are cut out using Nestabilities, then I added some sweet buttons, ribbon, happy christmas and of course, GLITTER!
