Popcorn with balloons


   For this fortnight Send A Smile 4 Kids would like to see celebration cards for their challenge. The sponsor for this challenge is Repeat Impressions who are offering a $15 gift certificate as their prize.
   I have chosen to celebrate a birthday and have used a long forgotten Popcorn the Bear stamp called smile. After colouring it using Promarkers I matted it onto card using a punch to round the corners of both the image and the mat.
   The design paper was printed from the accompanying CD ROM from Crafter's Companion and after matting this onto card I wrapped two vertical strips of satin ribbon round it before matting it onto white card. Again a punch was used to round all the corners.
   I finished the card with a stamp of Popcorn's little duck friend, cutting this out using a Spellbinder's die and matting it onto card.

Old friends


   This week the theme for the QKR Stampede challenge is anything goes.
   I coloured the digi called old house mouse using Promarkers and then cut out the oval behind her. Behind the oval aperture I placed silver mirri and then matted and layered the design onto pink followed by white card. The sentiment which I also matted onto pink card is called best antique.

Happy birthday pumpkin


 
   This week along with the usual anything goes theme the QKR Stampede challenge has the twist  pumpkins. I decided to make a card for an autumn birthday.
   I wrapped three rows of narrow ribbon around some spotted paper that I had in my stash.and then matted and layered this onto orange followed by white card. The image called thinking was coloured using Promarkers then cut out using an oval die and matted onto another piece of orange card.

Pumpkin fun


   I made an easel card base from white card and matted purple card from Hunkydory onto the base of this. The image from the House Mouse Designs cardmaking celebration collection was also matted onto the same card before attaching to the front of the easel. The three circular stops were also from the same collection. The sentiment which I edged with orange gold edged peel off was from the Creative World of Crafts 'Sentiments from the heart' popper pad.

Contemporary snowman


   The theme for this fortnight's challenge at Send A Smile 4 Kids is early holiday wishes. It is being sponsored by
Dollar Graphics Depot who are offering a $15 gift certificate
and
Dies R Us who are also offering a $15 gift certificate



   I have gone for contemporary colours for this Christmas card. I matted paper from Papermania onto gold mirri and then wrapped blue satin ribbon round it before matting onto white card.
   The image from Dollar Graphics Depot is from their Brrr It's Cold set and I coloured it using Promarkers in the main. I used a gold gel pen for the snowflake and Stickles on the snow. After cutting it out using a Spellbinders oval die I matted it onto purple card and then attached it to the card. Using a Tattered Lace die I cut five snowflakes from gold mirri and attached these to the ribbon.
