2 Sketches 4 You Challenge Card

I think this card is going to be for my sister - she has a very cute sock monkey collection, and I've been meaning to use this K&Co paper for ages for her. For the circle, I cut out an old frosted plastic notepad cover that I'd saved, and stamped it with the sentiment from Art Warehouse (I think). I cut the scalloped edge with one of the big Sizzix card dies.

Cute Card Thursday: Stitching Challenge

I treated myself to some new crafty stash this week, including the massive Sizzix die that cuts out these scalloped cards. I also bought the little square Cuttlebug embossing folders, and a couple of things from the new K&Co Madeline range - tried them all out here!

2 Sketches 4 You Challenge Card

I was a bit stuck with the sketch at first... thought it had a more masculine look, so no bows/flowers/scallops on this one!
I used 2 of the new Cuttlebug embossing folders, and sprayed the corrugated one with silver Glimmer Mist, and layered it onto some Crate Paper. I cut out stars from the other embossed cardstock, and raised up the ones behind the sentiment with foam pads.
The monsters and sentiment are from Dafont fonts, printed out and covered with different coloured Stickles.

Baby Shower Gift / Papertake Weekly Challenge

I'm going to a baby shower for a friend tonight - I got her some Sanctuary goodies, and wanted to make a little wall hanging for her baby boy when he arrives too. I wouldn't normally put orange into a baby boy colour scheme, but it matched the Sanctuary packaging colours really nicely! I started off using the Papertake weekly Challenge, though it got rather adapted I'm afraid...

'Thanks for the TV' card!

I haven't done any crafting for a while, but wanted to make a Thank You card for some friends of ours who gave us their old telly, after ours blew up!
I had a look at some challenge blogs for inspiration, and actually based this card on four different challenges - so much help I didn't really need to do anything myself :) The layout is from 2 Sketches 4 You (always love them!), the Caardvarks challenge was to make a window card, Cute Card Thursday was to use stitching - real or faux, and Daring Card Makers was to use Blue and Green together. Anyway, here is the result....
