52 Cards Challenge Week 9

Hello, I hope you had a great weekend and are ready for this week's challenge!

Here are the prompts
Grey, Lime and Handmade Embellishment.

Here is mine
I love bright green so I was happy to be able to work with it this week. I created the embellishment from small circles of felt which I pinched and stitched onto a small strip of felt, I sewed gathering stitches on some ribbon to make the flower and added some buttons. The swirl was cut using my Slice machine and I went around the edge with a sakura stardust pen to make it pop (which it's not doing in the picture!) and finished off with thickers and some gems.

Until next week, have a good one :)

52 Cards Challenge Week 8

Hola amigos! Hmm, don't know why I came over all spanish then! I know I say this every week but boy does monday come around fast! Ok, so here are the prompts for this week..

Raspberry/Plastic/Just Because

Well, this week I interpreted the prompts on how I saw them (and also what I had in my collection!) I took the Raspberry prompt as an accent colour (although it looks a little more burgandy) I then found an Anna Grfiin transparency (the plastic element) and I recently got a new MME die cut that doesn't really have a clear sentiment so I created this card 'Just Because' i liked all the elements together! That's what is the fun part of these prompts, feel free to interpret them how you want to, it's all about getting you to be more creative!

Here is mine
Looking forward, as usual, to see your creations, post you links in the comments section and I'll pop on over! Have a great week!

52 Cards Challenge Week 7

Hello again :) I hope this week finds you well? I find myself looking forward to the weekend when I get to pick the catagories for the challenge, and I enjoy sitting down and creating even more. I didn't think when I started that I would manage to get so many cards made, it just makes me happy!

Here are the prompts for this week:
Purple/Monochromatic/Thanks. As usual you can choose just one of the prompts or use a combination of the three. I managed 2 for this week, only because the original butterfly on the first card was destined for the second card, however the tone just wasn't quite right!

I used a Hero Arts notecard, Inkadinkadoo stamps set for the background, Hero Arts butterfly and sentiment, gemstones and Fiskars punch. I stamped 2 butterflies to give an nice depth to the card, unfortunately you can't see it in this picture but I also detailed the butterly with perfect pearls, it looks so pretty when it catches the light.

Here is the second
I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's day (and the prompts from last week helped you with a card for that special someone!)

I am also excited as this is my 90th post, 10 more and I am going to have a little giveaway of some of my favourite things so I hope you'll visit again soon :)

Have fun creating!

52 Cards Challenge Week 6

Welcome to another week's challenge!

This week I have forgone the paper bags and little strips of paper and chosen to acknowledge Valentine's Day.

The prompt for this week is Valentines/No use of red or pink/Hearts. You can choose to use all the valentine's prompts or just one, the aim is to have fun creating!

Here is mine.
I stamped the heart doily using my lovely new Hero Arts stamp and used white embossing powder, I then used TH Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass all over and wiped off the excess, mounted and stitched it on some blue gingham paper and added a doily at the bottom (kind of hidden by the sentiment) some ribbon and a sentiment. I really had fun creating this although it turned out far 'girlier' than I planned so I will go back to the drawing board to make a more manly card for Mr Paper!

Have a great week :)
