Acetate Card for Creative Moments

Good Evening!
I just thought I would show you one of the cards I have made for the company
I am a Guest Designer with them for a few months so I get to make cards out of their products for them to display at their shop and Craft Shows :)
They aren't my usual style which I think is good for me!

Here is one of the Acetate Card I have made for them, which is my favourite!

PBSC - Carole's Sketch!

Good Morning!
Hope your all having a good weekend, this week at PBSC we have a sketch for you made by my teamie Carole, It's a great sketch so I hope you all enjoy using it!

My card this week was made for an order as after giving a friend a birthday card, 5 minutes later one of their friends asked me to make an Anniversary Card for his wife as it was their 1st anniversary coming up! All they asked for was that it said her name on the front, so fingers crossed they will like it!

Creative Inspirations - Monochrome!

Good Morning!
Hope everyone is well, We had the snow revisit this week but luckily it seems to be almost melted now! :D

This weeks challenge over at CREATIVE INSPIRATIONS is for you to use Monochrome!
This means just use one colour on your card in various shade with white
(You may also include skin tones on your stamped image).

Now I went a bit wrong on my card as you will notice, Instead of picking up the Light Grey pen for Tilda's Hat, Dress and Shoes what did I do .... Picked up the Brown Pen!
By then it was too late and I had to go along with it, so not happy with myself! lol

I decided to use Green for my card.

* Tilda Image & PB Sentiments
* Various Basic Grey Papers
* Flowers from Stamposaurus
* Robin's Nest Dew Drops - Mowed Grass

Thanks for Popping By & For Your Lovely Comments! xxx

PBSC & Creative Moments Blog Party!

Good Morning!
I have 2 special things to share with you today, firstly my
and Secondly a Blog Party for CREATIVE MOMENTS that I design for.
Let's start off with my PBSC Card.
This week we have a theme of Pins & Pearls. I thought this would be a little tricky at first as I don't really use Pins on my cards but then I had the brainwave of threading some Pearl Beads onto some Safety Pins! I have to say I rather liked them and will definately use them on my cards again.
* PB Stamped Image & Sentiment Inside
* Anita's Sentiment on Front
* Bo Bunny Papers
* Twinklets for the Cake Icing
* Ribbon, Pins & Beads from Stash
* Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' Embossing Folder
Creative Moments are having a special blog party where throughout the day there will special Giveaways, Step by Steps, Competitions etc...
Something you definately can't miss out on!
My part for this was to create some cards using their sketch and papers :)
These cards aren't my usual style but it's good to do something different once in a while!

Here is how I made my cards ...
(Just be warned I'm not very good at Instructions lol )

* Start off by cutting a piece of card slightly smaller than your card base and stick to the front of your card. Repeat this process with a piece of Patterned Paper but make it smaller than the piece of card just cut. Stick the Paper onto the card.

* Cut 3 pieces of card into the shapes seen on the sketch, Cut Paper to fit these and then emboss the Paper with the Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots Folder. Stick the paper to the pieces of card.
Arrange them into position onto the card and place a strip of ribbon across the 2 small squares that will fit under the rectangular piece.
Glue all of these down.
* Round of another piece of card that will be for your 'Image' with a corner punch and repeat the same for a piece of white card you want to fit into it.
Decorate with Peel - Off Stickers then fix to your card using 3D Foam Squares.
Embellish the card with 2 Large Buttons on the rectangular piece.

The Rest Of My Calendar...

Good Morning!
I thought that instead of waiting until saturday to show you the rest of my calendar I would pop it up now :)
It includes my favourite month which is not just because it's my birthday but I love the Tilda stamp I have used for it!
Sorry again for the pic quality but these calendars are a pain to get a decent photo of ecspecially on an angle!

I have only just noticed I have used the same picture for September as I did on March .... grrrr I'm so annoyed at myself!!
