Cupcake Challenge 227

Hello everyone, today on Cupcake Challenge 227 we have a theme of "with bells on" and we would like to see bells of some sort on your card/project. This week we are sponsored by My Mum's Craft Shop and they are giving us a £10 gift voucher as a prize.

For my card today, I thought I'd make an early Christmas card and I used stamps from WMS Seasonal Remedies set. I stamped the image with memento rich cocoa ink and I distressed it with antique linen and vintage photo ink then I gave the same distress treatment to my background card and I repeatedly stamped my main image over again with antique linen to make my background.

I finished off with the usual stitching, some ribbon and a bell. This was very quick and easy to make but I really love the finished look, it also doesn't have a lot of layers either so hopefully it won't cost too much to post!!!

Card/Paper: Ivory and red card
Stamps: WMS - Seasonal Remedies
Colouring: Distress inks - antique linen and vintage photo. Memento - rich cocoa
Embellishments: Ribbon, bell
Tools: Sewing machine

Tilda Blowing Hearts

Hello everyone, today I have a card to share the features Tilda Blowing Hearts from the Magnolia With Love Collection 2013. I am entering this card into the following challenges; Totally Tilda Challenge 63 has a theme of Tilda in trousers and Midweek Magnolias Challenge 45 has a theme of anything goes.

For my card I have coloured Tilda with copics and my DP is from Magnolia too. I added a doily and I used my scalloped stitched lace DooHickey die for the decorative edge and So Wrapped Lovely for the tag. The pretty panel is a Noor Design die and I finished off with some ribbon and jewels.

For the inside I created a border using a Noor Design die......It turned out rather larger than expected when I put it all together!!

Cupcake Challenge 225

Hello everyone, today on Cupcake Challenge 225 we have a theme of anything but a card and our sponsors this week are Pink Gem Designs who are giving one lucky winner 4 digi images of their choice.

For my project this week I have made some cupcake toppers. My sister is hosting a baby shower for her friend and she asked my to make some toppers for her. It isn't known if the baby is a girl or a boy so I went with a blue/pink colour combo but stuck with generic wording which I created on my computer. I cut out each sentiment with a circle nestie, stamped in blue or pink the old valentine letter background from the Magnolia Valentine Collection 2009 and then distressed each one with antique linen and vintage photo distress ink. I then layered this onto a scalloped circle that had also been distressed. For the back I used up some scraps of DP and gave each one the distress treatment too!

I cut down some skewers to the appropriate length and attached my circles with foam pads. Finally I finished off by adding some ribbon to each one.

Sorry about the awful photos, the sun was just too bright to get a decent shot.

Card/Paper: White card, various scraps of DP
Stamps: Magnolia - Old Valentine Letter - Valentine Collection 2009
Embellishments: Ribbon
Tools: Trouvaille, nesties
