Spring Fever

"Spring Fever"? Well not here in Australia but that is the theme for the current challenge over on the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog. I have used the free image - Flowerbed Fred, so generously supplied by Heather.

This is my first time making a Circular Step Card and I quite enjoyed it. I did have a bit of trouble making it sit right as it was tending to lean left.
I made the flowers and leaves with "Marianne Creatables" dies. The smaller flowers are from punches. The flower centres are "Flowersoft".

A Masculine Card

Todays card is a masculine card. It is my nephews birthday soon and I decided to use the sketch from  Feeling Sketchy Challenge #55 to create my card. As an optional extra we were challenged to add punched/die cut shapes. My scrambled "Happy Birthday" and "stars" are all die cuts.

I am also entering this card in the The Stamp Spot Challenge Blog where the theme this month is also Masculine.

This is the sketch we had as inspiration

Feeling Sketchy Challenge #54

My card for the Feeling Sketchy Challenge blog this week. Everything that could go wrong did go wrong with this card. I scrapped my first and second card and eventually settled on this one. Third time lucky. I think it must of been the colour combination of purple and green that was given as a twist with the sketch. Not my normal choice of colours to work with. It has also been raining here all day today so getting a good photo was near impossible especially this late in the afternoon.

Anyhow here is my card

Imagine That Freebie Challenge #4

I am enjoying the challenges provided by Kris from the Imagine That  Digi Stamp Progressive Challenge blog. Her images are so useable. I did take a few liberties with the sentiment by changing it to fit on one line to suit my card. I hope Kris doesn't mind, but that is the beauty of digi stamps, you can change them to suit your needs. I also added the "7" as my Great Nephew turns 7 next birthday and I'm going to use this card for him.

You can't really tell from the photo but the balloons are covered in Diamond Glaze and the 7 is cut from blue holographic paper so its all sparkly.

If you want to play along pop over to the Imagine That  blog and pick up your free image.

Feeling Sketchy Challenge #53

I don't know where the days are going. I used to be able to make several cards a week and now I seem to be pushing it to make 1 or 2. Anyhow, I managed to make one for the Feeling Sketchy Challenge Blog. There was an added twist this week. Not only did we have a sketch as inspiration but we had to add 3 or more flowers.

This is the sketch we had as inspiration

Dies - Spellbinders - Lacy Circles
Embossing Folder - Cuttlebug - Swiss Dots
