You are so beautiful to me......

I've just finished this card in time to post today! This card finished up totally different to how I meant it to- but I really like it! I used paper from the DCWV Sweet stack which was scalloped with a Fiskars punch. I added a large Hot Off The Press bloom which I folded in half and some rub-ons to complete the sentiment. I didn't have any pink glitter & have not been able to find the right pink anywhere so I made my own (well mixed it anyway!). Just take some white glitter - I had a lot left over from Christmas - put it into a pot and add the colour of your choice, mine was dark pink, put the lid on the pot (well duh!) and give it a really good shake to mix it. You can give it a stir with a cocktail stick to make sure that it's really mixed. You may have to shake & stir each time you use it as the colours may seperate .Ta-Da!! Perfect colour!! I cut the SO out of pink card and added the glitter and it was just the right shade. The 'beautiful' is also glittered. The rub -ons are K & Co. I added three tiny heart gems to the ribbon to finish it off.

Sweet 16!

These two cards use the same paper but are totally different. I thought that the paper from DCWV Sweet stack (filled with yummy sweet treats!) would lend itself very nicely to 'sweet' themed cards and what better than Sweet 16!! The card with the single flower uses Bazzil Swiss Dots paper as well as the sweet paper. I rounded the corners of the panel added a stacked ribbon flower, pink tartan numbers and glittered 'sweet' along with three punched tartan hearts. The other card again uses the sweet paper, matted & layered on pink. A scalloped circle bearing the number 16, a satin ribbon ,three layered flowers and a glitter flocked sweet complete the card.
I think I'm using far too much pink these days!!!

You Make My Heart Sing!

I loved this phrase and I came up with this card to utilise it. It started out as a CASE of another card but ended up totally different! The glittered paper is from DCWV Sweet stack. A Fiskars punch was used to punch/emboss the white piece with three tiny hearts punched from background paper. Three white/pink layered flowers,a ribbon bow and a little heart punched from the same paper embellish the front. The phrase was mounted onto a scalloped rectangle and applied with foam pads to add dimension.

Race For Life

The annual Race for Life fun runs will be rolling out all around the country in the summer ( Portsmouth's is on 19th July) so I made a card- a litle early I know- to celebrate it! I used a strip of Pink Petticoat paper and added a breast cancer ribbon. Cards with this theme could be sold and the proceeds go to a very worthwhile charity. Check out the dates for a run in your area!
