Birthday Cocktails

Hello everyone. Cardz 4 Galz has started a new challenge. Dawn is hosting this time round, and she has chosen the theme of ‘cocktails’. Here is my card:

I die cut the Pinkfresh Studio deco frame, leaving the inner part intact. Onto that piece I used a Lawn Fawn stencil to create some pink interest, then also used some glitter paste for a little sparkle.

Whilst that was drying, I die cut the MFT dies – from several sets – to create the cocktail glasses, inner drink from an ink smooshed panel, and also the garnishes – which were extremely fiddly – but satisfying once completed.

Once layered, I played with which garnish to go with which drink, stuck them all together, then had a play with placement onto the now dry stencilled background.

The glasses were stuck down with 3D foam, then sentiment stamped and added, and then I decided to add some additional sparkle with these coloured sequins I found in my stash.

I also added some glossy accents to some of the garnishes.

I hope you can come and join us in your cocktail themed creations. xx

Googly Eyed Deer

Hello there. A new challenge is just beginning at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge. The theme is ‘anything goes’ and can be anything Christmas related – cards, tags, boxes, scrap-book pages.

Here is my card:

The die-cut deer is from Waffle Flower and using a Tim Holtz card/paper pad I have had for absolutely ages. I used this because the card has some detail and pattern to it. I cut the whole deer out of two brown colours, then played with the placement to create the deer as you see.

I definitely wanted to use googly eyes and found some in my stash.

The white card underneath was created with some glitter paste and a stencil, made previously and just waiting for the right Christmas card to add to, and the red and white striped card is from my stash – maybe Stampin Up but not completely sure!

I hope you can come and join us this time round and get a head-start on your Christmas creations – the Design Team has some amazing makes – and includes a whole variation of creations.
