A Lilac Challenge

The theme this week for our SBS Challenge is simply to make a card in lilac/purple, and was hosted by Jane from Carroll’s Creations . She has a wonderful style and her cards are always fun! This is my sample card that you must have seen over on our SBS18 Challenge blog if you took my double dog dare! 😉 If you didn’t, well, it must have just slipped your mind right? 🙂 Well there’s still lots of time! You have until tuesday night of next week to post your card and link it to the challenge for a chance at winning some candy! Why not go on over there and take the challenge? I shortened the front of the card by 3/4″ and lined the inside panel with a strip of Afternoon Tea dp.  To the edge of the front a narrow strip of Perfect Plum cs was applied.  The three small blossoms are dipped in dazzling diamonds on the petals and attached with mini button brads.

Hi! The limited supply challenge yesterday on SCS dared us to use our unloved bought and forgot embellishments! Well I’ve had these boring beige round letter buttons for at least a year and never used them. So today was the day! I KNEW I’d need them someday! LOL I absolutely love this sentiment created by Lesley Langdon for Cornish Heritage Farms. It was included in the Stamp of the Month for March, which I finally received today! I used it here as it was fitting with the floral theme . It was stamped direct to paper in Almost Artichoke Ink. I punched the blooms with a floral punch and paper pierced the stems from a template I made freehand. Thanks for stopping by! Hope you enjoy it! Deena

Chocolate Egg

Hello! Today I made a card that combined two challenges, using the Inspiration Challenge from SCS, and Sharon’s blog (No Time to Stamp) challenge asking us to pierce your paper!.Chocolate Egg  I do not have an oval shape cutter, so I freehanded the egg shaped card. I used glitter gel writers to colour in some of the dots on the dp, then I added SU dazzling diamonds on top of these. The mini egg is stamped with a chocolate chip bunny and colored with metallic pencil and glitter pens. The edge around the egg is outlined in pink glitter and blue dots. The whole egg is dipped in Stampin’ Up dazzling diamond glitter. The Blue strip is pierced free hand for more eggcellent decoration! TIP of the day: Paper Piercing You do not need fancy templates to paper pierce. If you are good at doodling, draw a light pencil marked doodle where you want the piercing, then pierce holes appr. 1/8 inch to 1/4 inch apart following the marking. Erase the marking and you’re done. …
