Lily birthday card

Hello! I hope you're having a good weekend! I'm back after a little break with a birthday card I've made for my step mum-in-law. I used the MFT Lilies die and coloured it with Copics. I originally left the background blank but it looked a bit plain so I stamped a background in VersaMark ink. The lilies are perfect for sympathy cards but I didn't want to this to look like one so I followed this weeks bright colour combo from Colour Throwdown. I also took inspiration from this weeks Cutting Edge challenge card and I'm entering it to Seize the Birthday's Anything Goes challenge too. I hope you like it, thanks for looking!

Dies - Lil' Inker 'Stitched Rectangles' & MFT 'Lily'
Cardstock - Stampin' Up 'Coastal Cabana'
Ink - Stampin' Up 'Smoky Slate' & VersaMark

Evening all! Wow the weekend has gone already! I'm back this evening to show you a card I've made using gorgeous Glitz supplies from Buttons for Brains. I've used some fab paper & a die cut sentiment from the Black & White kit. I've made this card using this weeks Muse card as inspiration for the layout, and turned it into a shaker card using little hearts as my shaky bits! :-) And also another entry into this weeks Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge. I hope you like it, thanks for stopping by!

Hiya! Happy Saturday! I'm back with a quick post to show this card I've made. It's for this weeks CASology challenge of Rainbow, I love using rainbow colours on cards! It's also for this weeks Merry Monday Birthday challenge and the Simon Says challenge of Anything Goes. I love that they have a summer challenge for kids, I can't wait for Elsie to enter them! :-) Jamie's already said he's going to lose his computer desk in my craft room to her! Hee hee! He's right!
I made this card by first stamping out all the candle images then cutting the sentiment straight into it. I then cut the sentiment out 6 more times and layered the letters up. I hope you like it! Have lovely day, I'll be back later this weekend with a card for Buttons for Brains.

Stamp - Papertrey Ink 'Wishes come true'

Stencilled #1

Hello! I hope you've had a good weekend! Not sure if you've seen but there's a sale on at Online Card Classes. I love these classes but never have a solid chunk of time to take part in them so don't want to spend the money. However, as they're now both finished and cheaper, I thought I would take the Stencilled class in my own time. I've got quite a few stencils but need a jump start to use them. Here is my first card using Debby Hughes' sponging technique & card idea. I've made it in my fave colour scheme; coral & gold, for the following challenges - Avery Elle - Die cuts, Addicted to CAS - Celebrate, Less is More - Anything Goes & Simon Says Stamp - Embossing. I forgot to take a pic of the inside of the card but I've stamped Happy Birthday and a little cupcake to go with the sentiment. I hope you like it, I'll hopefully be back with tomorrow with another card.

Stencil - That Special Touch 'Large Polka Dots'
Inks - Distress Inks 'Tattered Rose', 'Dried Marigold' & 'Worn Lipstick'
Sentiment - Avery Elle 'Cake & Candles'
Candle - Papertrey Ink 'Wishes Come True'
Dies - Papertrey Ink 'Fillable Frames #1' & 'Wishes Come True'
Other - gold embossing powder, gems & vellum
