Birthday Card (Cricut)

Here is the Birthday card i was asked to make for someone. I used my Cricut Plantin schoolbook cart for the numbers. I really love the shadow function on a lot of the carts, it really just finishes of the image. i used my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder for the front panel and black and silver card that i found among my papers. The black gems and black ribbon are great for masculine cards because they dont look to bling or girly!

Inside the card i cut the Happy Birthday sentiment using my Wild Card Cart and swirl from Storybook. The scallop borders were made from my Fiskars border punch. Again i have finished off the numbers and the swirl by using Glossy Accents and sprinkling with Martha Stewart glitters.

Thanks for looking!

Another easel card! (cricut)

Well the last few days have been so busy. I have been shopping for all the rest of our holiday bits and pieces. I did of course have to add to my stash while at the shops and have also had to buy more and more storage boxes for it all..not sure where its all came from!
This card is one i was asked to make for someone. I have used my wild card cartridge for the sentiment, storybook and my nesties for the scallop circle and marquee shape. The square panel behind is embossed using the cuttlebug swiss dots folder.  I made the flowers using my plantin schoolbook and border was cut using my fiskers threading scallop punch. The swrils are a sizzix die i found in my drawer of tricks!I used some lovely pearls and ribbon and a butterfly charm from my stash to finish it off and of course my old faithful Glossy Accents to bling bits of it up! I really like making easel cards at the moment...good for quick makes and something different!
I have a few fathers day cards to make and a male birthday card on order for friends so will need to get these made tomorrow then i will get back into doing some challenges!

Have a good day!

Totally Gorjuss - Challenge #33 - Sketch
Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog - Challenge #3 - Its Your Day..
The Corrosive Challenge  - Challenge #67 - Die Cuts

For this card i followed the sketch on Totally Gorjuss. The paper is from Bo Bunny and i used the cuttlebug to emboss the white background.The stamp is Midsummer Tilda coloured by pro markers. I used my Nestabilites to cut the scallop circle and my Cricut Wild Card Cartridge to cut the sentiment. Storybook and Plantin Schoolbook Carts were used for the flowers and branches. The pearls and ribbon finished it off.

Lili of the Valley Challenge 54 - Sketch by Bev

Here is my very first entry for the LOTV sketch challenge.
I used a LOTV stamp coloured with promarkers. The paper is from K&co and the top layer is embossed using my cuttlebug and the swiss dots folder. I ruffled the ribbon to add some depth and used my Cricut and Story book cartridge for the corner swirls. The sentiment was stamped and added glossy accents and gems for some bling! My flowers are just a simple flower punch. These are favourite colours at the moment!
