Today is all about cards

First up from our Guest DT Sandra ...

I love black and white, and add in a few dots, and I couldn’t be happier

These round rhinestones buckles are just devine, and with a simple scrap of paper, cuttlebug-embossed background, you have a quick and easy card for a special occasion

With ‘Birthday Wishes’ I decided to 3D the flower print on the Webster’s Pure Grace paper – well, not by cutting it out, but by choosing flowers of a similar colour and shape and adding them onto the paper with rhinestones to centre them.

I love the script in this paper and chose 2 circle pendants, cut out another script paper to size, matching the colours/tones and popped it into the charm. I used dimensional magic, 3-4 coats to build it up to look like balloons. A couple of pieces of string and a knot, and I was done. I used my ‘cloud’ nesties for the background for the sentiment but the Buzz and Bloom chipboard clouds would work just as well covered with snowflake cardstock

From Taryn ...

I had some bits and pieces left over from my my2angels frames
kit, so decided to create this card.

I cut a medallion from some Life's Portrait Pure Grace paper, and also used it for the background of the card, and I cut a frame and some birdcages from the Life's Portrait Reflections paper, as well as using a strip of the striking polka dot on from the reverse side of the Reflections.

There is some cotton lace, and pink beads threaded through the ribbon slide, and I stamped the message inside the little frame and
highlighted the edges with some liquid pearls.

And lastly from me

I actually made a card!
My cousin welcomed his first baby into the world last week

The Teresa Collins Bebe Girl Collection is perfect for baby girl projects.

On the front is our white scalloped felt frame creating a window with acetate. The mini pink gardenia has been covered in diamond dust (which will be back in stock towards the end of the month - sorry for the delay to everyone who has been asking for it.) With our large white tag tucked underneath I inked the edges black, cut out one of the crown from the Teresa Collins Chic Bebe Girl Ledger paper and covered with dimensional magic and a final touch with our princess crown charms

Inside the frame, is the back side of the Teresa Collin Fleur de Lis paper, stripe off the growing paper, baby girl tag from mini tag paper and to finish off our baby feet charm & pram charm attached to a Hero Arts pink button on our pretty white with pink tips flowers.

Now to make a gift to match!

Hope you weekend has been fun and creative
See ya soon
