Relax


Just thought I'd share a card that I made last weekend using the ScanNcut and my Tilda papers.





I love the challenge of making something that is entirely flat look dimensional, this is easily done using only an ink pad around the edges and my warm grey 3 copic ciao.




I still haven't got around to getting canvas so the stitched lines were done by hand. The paper pad came complete with some diecuts, I think that the flowers look fab as cushions.




I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
HIMCR196, Freestyle,
CC275, Girly,
SCT83, No image,
MAWTT, Anything but square,
CBD, Shaped card.

Before I go, as you can see from the poster, the Southern Girls are linking up with Spiegelmom on National Scrapbook day, we hope that you will join us and if you fancy treating yourself to some goodies to scrap long, Jodie is offering you all 15% discount in her etsy shop when you use this code:- NSD15

Shine Like A Star!

It's time for the new challenge to start at 


The theme this time is 


Now, you may have noticed that I've not blogged much recently, that's because I haven't been able to do much in the way of crafting as I've managed to hurt my shoulder. 
This means that I wasn't able to use the gorgeous image from "Art by Miran" that I was supplied with, one of the sponsors this time, please check out the challenge blog for full details of the sponsors of this challenge.

Luckily though I had made a card for my son that I haven't yet blogged, luckily it does also have a star on it!



I made my card using the ScanNcut, this time instead of making the front and back in the shape of the name, I welded the name to a curved rectangle. Initially I left the inside white but felt that it lacked that little something then my eye was drawn to my box of washi tape, a few lines gave the perfect result.




I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
CCC111, Shaped cards,

Flowers And Pearls

I thought I'd share a Mother's Day card that I made, I slightly borrowed the idea of inlaying my flower diecut behind a heart frame but I altered it to suit my design as I wanted to be able to see through the heart so layered my die cut between my heart apertures, it took some working out but once I'd done it I went straight on to use the idea to make another card which I will share in a day or so.




I added a few pearls to set off my design.




I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Allsorts 302, Flowers and pearls,
C4ER217, Mums,
C4AS97, Girly girls,
FBD, Flowers.

Let's Hear It For The Boys.

It's time for a new challenge at Southern Girls and the theme this time is
It turned out to be perfect timing for me as I'd been asked to make a card for a friend's two boys to give to her husband on his special birthday.


The image that I used is by from one of the sponsors this time, Inky Impression, please check out the challenge blog for details of all of this fortnight's sponsors.



I used Teacher's Pet Christopher, flipping one of the images and making them both different sizes, just like my friend's sons. I used my ScanNcut to make the little shield with the age on and also "Daddy".
I can't remember who the Birthday die is by but I angled it and got Christopher to hold it.


He's such a cute little chappie, what you can't see on my design is that Christopher has a nice shiny apple on the front of his t shirt . 


I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
CCC32, Birthday,
CGE32, Anything goes,
CPP, March,
CSD, Birthday, 
SOS192, Numbers,
