It's Raining Cupcakes!

Hi Everyone,
I hope you are all having a good crafty week, today I have a card for the
 Lawnscaping Challenge #100 Birthday Celebration and the DT are really partying with invited guests, so check it out!

So I thought my card fitted both of these great challenges. I started with copic blending card for my base, as I wanted to create my own background with these cute cupcakes from Lawn Fawn Birthday Tags, all coloured with copic's and the icing has clear Wink of Stella glitter pen. The fishtail dotted tag is from Avery Elle and sponged with distress ink after I masked off the edges with micro pore tape. I stamped and coloured the little bird, then die cut it with the coordinating die and cut out three balloons all from the Hello Sunshine stamp & dies from Lawn Fawn. I coloured the balloons with copics and added wink of stella to those as well, I have hand drawn the balloon strings and stamped the wire for the bird to sit on. The piece of patterned paper is from my stash, The sentiments are also from birthday tags and stamped with versafine onyx black ink. I added some little sprinkles from doodlebug, these are gorgeous!
Here is the inside of my card, just to tie in with the front, I also added a piece of white card stock to the other inside piece as the colouring did bleed through from the front.
 These are the copic markers I used
Now I had a blast making this card and you still have heaps of time to enter both these great challenges.

Thanks so much for visiting me today.

Happy Critters!

Hi Everyone,
Today I have a card that's jam packed full of cuteness and critters.
I had so much fun with this card, all the critters are from Lawn Fawn and coloured with copic markers and prisma pencils, I also used the Lawn Fawn stitched hillside border and grass die. The sky is distress ink with some white embossed clouds, the little sentiment tags are from Avery Elle.

Now this week SSS is showcasing Paper Smooches Products, but I don't have any yet, notice I said yet he he.

Hello Everyone,
I hope this finds you all well & happy! I was asked to make a Birthday card for a girl turning 19, well I always seem to stumble a little with the teen cards, does anyone else have this problem? This time I am very happy and I really hope the recipient will be too.
 I started with the balloons stencil and distress ink, using evergreen bough very lightly and then some peacock feathers at the bottom and edges, then spun sugar and picked raspberry with the same technique for the other balloon. I stamped the strings & small sentiment in London fog Memento ink.
For the die cut word Happy and my stitched frame, I blended  the distress inks on white cardstock and cut them out. I die cut some little stars and the tails top & bottom from some American crafts silver glitter paper, I then used the other stencil in the set to do some pink diagonal stripes for two of the corners.
They are also featuring Hero Art products, and that's where my inside sentiment is from
I also added a little label on the other side to finish the card off
I almost forgot, I added some clear wink of stellar glitter pen to the word Happy on the front and 19 today words.

Baby Boy

Hello Everyone,
Well I have been MIA for the past couple of weeks, as I have had my dear Mum staying with me, but today I am back at my desk and just in time for a brand new challenge at
I have created a baby card as I have 2 nieces expecting babies at the moment so I am trying to be prepared and today I thought I would do a baby boy card.
The Lawnscaping Challenge #99 asked for Clean & Simple . I used Lawn Fawn Hello Baby Stamp set. The card design is one I have seen on you tube & blogs recently, using little windows and I love how it came together. All the colouring is done with copic markers C 4,2,0 V 01,0000 BG01,000,0000 and G20 all very soft colours, and the little hearts are stamped with Memento Summer Sky ink. The circle were cut out using spellbinders standard circles and my front panel is lifted up with foam squares for a little dimension.
The inside is stamped with simon says stamp Happy stamp set, I created a pale blue card base for my card and also a matching envelope.
I love how these simple little details finish off the project and make it that little bit extra special.

So thanks for visiting me, and jump over to the Lawnscaping Challenge # 99 with your Clean & Simple project, and be in the running for a fantastic Store Credit from Ellen Hutson.
Have a wonderful crafty day.
