Scarcrow Fall

Here is an autumn card I made using my new stamps that I won from winning a DRS designs challenge.
I stamped both the scarecrow and sentiment and coloured the scarecrow using my promarkers. I then edged the sentiment with orange ink and the scarecrow with gold ink. I backed the image with green card and the sentiment with green then yellow card.
I edged the backing card with yellow ink and covered it with orange holographic card. I covered the backing with two pieces of stripy orange and green ribbon. I attached my image and sentiment onto the card at angles and embellished it with gold fabric leaves. To finish, I then attached two embossed gold leaves from my stash.

Mousy Birthday Wishes

Hey, here is a quick card I made for my music lecturer at uni; shes great and has been so helpful, she will love this card!
I stamped the wooden Penny Black stamp and coloured it using my promarkers; my lecturer will love the different coloured mice :) I then edged it with turquoise ink and backed it with dark blue card. I covered the backing card with musical instrument paper and a strip of turquoise card down the side. I covered the bottom of the image backing with turquoise musical ribbon and attached the image at an angle onto the card. I raised a 'Birthday Wishes' greeting backed with dark blue card onto the top left corner of the card. I embellished it with four blue brads in the corners and musical note stickers overlapped onto the edge of the image.

Time To Call Tech Support

Hey, here is a card I made for the company I worked for over the summer. Vebox limited is my cousins business and I have had a great time working with them; for any computer parts you need take a look at their website: - Thanks guys!!!! :D

I decided to make them a computer card with two Doodle Pantry digi images which mum hasn't used yet ;) I coloured the two images using copics markers (I left my promarkers at uni lol) and edged them with yellow ink.

I then backed them both with turquoise ink from mums scraps box and attached a strip of multicoloured beads across the bottom of the images. I used blue card for the base card and turquoise spotty/stripy paper for the backing which I also edged with yellow ink.
I made a tag from yellow card onto which I mounted my sentiment (also from doodle pantry). To this I added different coloured card candy and turquoise and brown spotty ribbon. I then raised the tag onto the centre of the card.
I added two corners to my images that I found im mums stash and also two yellow gems to the corners of the card.

Pink Ribbon Creation

Hey, here is a card I made to support the Link up for Pink challenge. We got the template from a craft show and I've been wanting to try it.
Firstly I backed the card with pink paper which I edged with pink ink. I then tied pearlescent pink ribbon down the side of the card. I cut the size of my template onto white card and edged the with pink ink before backing it onto pale pink card. I attached this to my card and layed the template over the top. I then used Hotfix Rhinestones and Pearls together with the Hotfix applicator to make the breast cancer ribbon logo. To finish, I stamped 'The Power of Pink' sentiment into white card with a boarder around it and cut this into a circle. To finish I inked this with pale pink ink and raised it up off centre of my card.
