Cupcake jump



   Today sees the start of a new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and this time the theme is pearls and/or gems.
   I love the House Mouse images and as I haven't used one of the stamps for a long time I decided that it was about time that I did. This one is called cupcake jump.  coloured it using Promarkers and cut it out using an oval die. I then matted it onto pale yellow oval paper and a darker yellow rectangular piece of paper which in turn was matted onto white card. I added coloured pearls that matched the sprinkles on the cake to the pale yellow mat and a gold peel off to each corner of the dark yellow rectangle.

Juggling



   The theme this week for the QKR Stampede challenge is anything goes with the twist of feathered friends.
   I know that Easter has just been celebrated but when I saw this image called Juggling (number 24226) I just felt I had to use it on an Easter card - so here's getting in early for next year!
   I made the oval card base using an essential oval Tattered Lace die and covered the front of the card with shiny crinkle paper. The image was coloured using Promarkers as was the sentiment (a Eureka digi number 3701). After cutting it out using a smaller die from the same set of oval dies I attached it to the card.

A pocket full of flowers



   This week the theme for the QKR Stampede challenge is anything goes with the twist flowers.
   I used the digi image smiling flowers (number 17002) and after colouring it using Promarkers I cut it out using a Tattered Lace pocket die. I added faux stitching using a permanent pen. I also added faux stitching to a square of white card before matting it onto the white card base. The pocket was attached using foam pads so that a bookmark could be slid into it. Card candi were attached at each corner of the pocket.
   The bookmark was made using an old Double Do die and again the pieces were coloured using Promarkers. The sentiment was cut using dies from Tattered Lace's all occasions sentiments set.

Blue tit



   The theme for the Crafty Cardmakers challenge for the next fortnight is things with wings.
   I embossed black core'dinations cardstock using the Tattered Lace with love and best wishes folder and then sanded it. Before attaching it to the base white card I wrapped satin ribbon round the lower half.
    My image is a print of a blue tit which I drew using watercolour pencils and after cutting it out using an oval Spellbinders die I matted it onto blue sheen card which I had cut out using a scalloped oval die. Finally I added a bow.
