Challenge #309 - Embossing of any kind - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers this weeks theme over on The Paper Shelter is

Embossing of any kind

This could either be with a Embossing Folder or even Embossing Powder and I seem to have used both.
But firstly you will want to know who our Sponsors are and as always our sponsers are The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website


But as always it comes with the rule that you must have used one of their products on your card or project, this could be a Image, Paper or Printable and even if you dont, they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice, so it really is a win win situation dont you think.
And now for my own Card I hope you like it.


For my image I have used this little lady "Art deco Charm" and you will find her here, I printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used a Nestabilitie Rectangle die to cut her out then used a blue piece of card for the mount.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of blue card and the backing paper I have used is the one that comes with the image and you will find it here. The I took a piece of gold card and used a Art Deco Embossing Folder and used some silver wax polish over it, and then placed this also onto a piece of blue card and mounted my image towards the left of it and placed it down the left side of my card. The sentiment is one from my stash and is also in Art Deco script and this is a stamp from my stash thats been stamped with clear embossing powder and a sparkle powder and this also was mounted onto blue card and placed in the bottom right hand corner as shown in the photo. To finish of I have used three pearls in the top right hand corner.
 Now that you've seen my Card I do hope that you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you will want to take part in this "Embossing of any kind" Challenge.

Challenge #202 - Use Kraft Paper - Pink Gem Designs

Good Morning Crafters, over on the Pink Gem Challenge Blogspot its the turn of the Pinks Team to create a card and our host this time is Lisa and she has chosen for us to

Use Kraft Paper

and Ive got to be honest I find that its quite difficult to colour on it so I chose to use Kraft paper as a backing paper and I hope that it does'nt upset the balance of my card.
But before I show you what I have been up to, but firstly I must let you know who is sponsoring us and that is Janet Roberts of Pink Gem Designs go and visit the Pink Gem Designs website and see for yourself

 
what beautiful and stunning images and papers that she creates for you to play with and create cards with.
And here is the Card I created for this theme


This gorgeous image is titled "The Ark" and I printed a coloured image then cut it out completely ready to place it on my background you will find it here. 
The base card is again a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of blue card, the backing papers are from my stash I believe they are from Sweetshoppe Designs, and because of the water theme I have used three of them, the first a bubble one which I placed on top of my first mount, then I cut a smaller mount out of blue card and then layered up firstly the kraft paper which stood for my sky, then used a scalloped edge cutter and made two wave layers and tucked the cut out image behind the last one to make it look as if its sailing along in the water. To finish of I used some glaze over the portholes. The sentiment is one from my stash and was mounted up and placed in the top right hand corner and to finish of I have used several fish related embellishments and placed them down the left hand side.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope that you will pay a visit to The Pink Gem Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "Use Kraft" Challenge.

Challenge #200 - Birthday Wishes - Pink Gem Designs

Good Morning Gemsters, its been a month since I sat down and wrote up a complete post as you are probably aware its not been a very comfortable month off for me either, but hopefully by the time this post goes live I will be over the worst and Im looking forward to a better future.
This Challenge today is all about sending Birthday Wishes and I sincerely hope you like the card I created for it. But firstly I must let you know who is sponsoring us and that is Janet Roberts of Pink Gem Designs go and visit the Pink Gem Designs website and see for yourself


 

what beautiful and stunning images and papers that she creates for you to play with and create cards with.
Before you go any further there is a Special Childrens Challenge over on our Challenge Blog and if your like some of the DT they have some very talented children of their own taking part so if your little people would like to take part in their own special Challenge do guide them to have a go.
And here is the card I made for you


This pretty little minx is "Fairy Faye" and I have printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used a large die to cut her out and inked the edges with lavender inkpad and created a mount for her out of a darker mauve card, I also did the same with the sentiment. You will find Fairy Faye here on the Pink Gem Designs website. 
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of the same mauve card and on top of this I have used papers from the Daisies pack and you will find them here. I used three of the papers in mauve, blue and red and then used a Martha Stewart Border punch down one side and layered them up as shown in the photo, afterwards I wrapped a piece of satin ribbon around the card and attached it to the back, then placed my mounted image towards the top and the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner. To finish of I have used some check buttons in the bottom left and some pearls in the opposite corner.
