Mermazing

I feel like I'm late to the party with today's card because I've seen this gorgeous mermazing set from MFT all over blogland for weeks now, but only just got around to ordering my set from Dies to Die For.  She's helping to promote the new 'fantasy' challenge starting today at In The Pink Challenge.

Birthday Daisy

I'm sharing a sweet little birthday card today which was made for a very special friend. I used the sweet Daisy Squidgy from Stamping Bella and paired it with a birthday sentiment from MFT's Adorable Elephants, both available from Dies to Die For.

Life's a Beach

I'm in summer mode today with Tilda eating her ice cream!  Yellow isn't my favourite colour so I feel like I've struggled a bit with this one.

Strawberries

As it's the last day of Wimbledon I've got a strawberry themed card!  It features a little meecie from Gerda Steiner nibbling on his fruit and some strawberry papers from Maja Design.

Lazy Daisy

I've made this cute card for a young lady who likes ponies using Lazy Daisy.  It's also perfect for today's challenge at As You Like It Challenge where we're asking if you prefer gems or pearls. 

I think it's fairly clear if you look at my previous creations that I opt for pearls on most of my cards and rarely use gems. I love the smooth texture of the pearls and have them in every colour of the rainbow to match whatever card I'm making. 

I hope the recipient likes it; it was requested by her grandmother who'd seen another one I'd made recently so I kept the design similar but used different papers and sentiment.

Just For You

I've been playing again with the gorgeous Sweet Pea from Stamping Bella.  I've accented the image with pencils to give the petals some texture.  The little tag die is new too, tied on with some embroidery thread.

Heffalumps

I've been drooling over these aptly named Adorable Elephants for a while and eventually they've come back into stock so I've nobbled them quickly and it wasn't too long before I've managed to ink them up.  I've used 4 of the cuties from the set and also a sentiment, but considering all those images, the design is still really CAS.

My little heffalumps are purple (because everyone knows that heffalumps can be purple) and I've created a little scene for them playing in the sun.  I hope you like them.

Ribbon-tastic

At As You Like It Challenge this fortnight we're looking to see how you like adding ribbon to your creations. I love using ribbon to hide the join between two designer papers and adding a double bow to top it off.  The ribbon I've used on today's project is more 'Cadbury Purple' than it looks in the photo as the colour seems to be impossible to photograph.  Hopefully you can get the gist!

Surprise!

I've been seeing these little boxes pop up (geddit!) over blogland and decided to make my own. But instead of downloading a template I started from scratch and measured out something to fit a sheet of A4 card (there's nothing like making life hard for yourself!). Despite the frustrations and a waste bin full of attempts, I'm quite pleased with the final result.  I've used Gerda Steiner Moody Unicorns for the decoration of both the case and the box. When the box is pulled out, it pops open using an elastic band for tension, which stretches when you want to squash the box flat again for keeping inside the little sleeve.

Thank you for being you

I knew I had to get my paws on this little lady as soon as I saw her in the sneak peeks.  She's Sweet Pea from Stamping Bella and she was one of my immediate favourites from the last release.  I have teamed her with some pretty Maja Design papers which, by luck more than judgement, are the perfect match in shade without overpowering the image.  The card was for a very special friend for whom I think the sentiment was perfectly written. :0)
