Happy Birthday Sweet Ella

This is a birthday card I have made for a sweet little girl who has just turned three, Happy Birthday Ella.
I have used  DSP from Nursery Nest with Pink Pirouette and Marina Mist card stock.  The brads are from the brights collection and the ribbon is white organza.  The stamp is from the Tagtastic hostess set from the current Ideas Book and Catalogue. 

I have decided to enter this into this weeks challenge at Just add Ink, JAI # 106 which is a Sketch challenge and also in the SUO challenge # 39 which is to make a Birthday Card.

I was just mucking around with some scraps and left overs (sounds like tea time lol) and decided to see how it would all turn out.  I must say it isn't to bad, so this is another card ready for a birthday.

Have gone to a favourite stamp set Vintage Vogue and Wisteria Wonder and Concord Crush colours.  I have inlaid embossed to add a different look.

JAI # 104 Back to School

 The challenge/theme over at Just Add Ink this week is BACK TO SCHOOL.  Well this year I don't have any one going back to school but thought that this notebook will be very useful for my daughter to keep track of things she should be going.

I will be forever hopeful that she might actually tick off chores 2 and 3 but I know she won't have a problem with the first one (neither would I).

Challenge Time

Found some time the other day to make a card for the Just Add Ink challenge for this week which is a colour challenge to use only Red and White.  I also decided to use the sketch from the challenge at Try Stamping on Tuesday.

I used Riding Hood Red, Whisper White and Confetti White card stock but I have also added a touch of Pink Pirouette (that is of course red and white together).  I stamped on the top Whisper White piece and them smudge it with a sponge and on the Whisper White mat I have spritzed it with the colour spritzer tool and a marker.  All the edges have been distressed  and I have painted some of the butterflies with Champagne Mist shimmer paint.  I have used a White Organza ribbon with some basic pearls and rhinestones to finish it off.

Another Birthday Card

Yes this is another birthday card.  This time for one of my Paper Diva Team members Sharlene,  Happy Birthday Sharlene, hope your day was a good one.

I have used a stamp from the Vintage Vogue set stamped in Wisteria Wonder and inlaid embossed some butterflies that I had cut out with the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die with the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine and then put in the Square Lattice embossing folder.  Then because I didn't think that the butterflies were showing up very well I decided to put some more on top.  Adding some basic Pearls and Organza ribbon to finish it off.

I used the same stamp on the inside of the card and on the envelope.
