The Pink elephant challenge #55


Here is my entry for this week's challenge over  at this site http://thepinkelephantchallenge.blogspot.com/I also had signed up on one of my stamping sites for a swap using 3 designer papers so decided to go for it and use The Pink elephant sketch for this other swap.
I used Royal blue cardstock from Cardmakers.co.nz here in New Zealand of course and the designer paper comes from one of our huge supermarket stores called The Warehouse. Rhinestones were from Kaisercrafts and the birds in flight stamp from Montarga Stamps a New Zealand stamp store that makes their own stamps.
Hope you like my take on this challenge. I had fun making it

Pals Paper Arts challenge #30... K.I.S.S.


Hi there here is another challenge that I have taken part in this week over at http://www.palspaperarts.com/challenges/. I used one of the new Cuttlebug folders I got back last month, ran the white card through the Cuttlebug then shaded it with this lilac versacolour cube.
I used this pink cardstock that I got from one of our cut price stationery shops here and I also used the Spellbinders buttefly die for the butterfly, I used the black and white ribbon from Spotlight and stamped the Happy birthday on to it at the bottom. It was simple to make and this is what I love about using the Cuttlebug machine.

The Pink elephant challenge #54 and a personal swap challenge card


Hi all here is card for this week'http://thepinkelephantchallenge.blogspot.com/s challenge #54 which was just to use ribbon. I had to make a black,white and a touch of red card for one of my internet groups February swaps and also combined it with TPE challenge. I used a white card for the based then ran the black cardstock through the Cuttlebug using the Bubbles folder I think its called. I cut out also using the Cuttlebug and the vintage corners dies two red corners and attached these to the black piece of cardstock. The ribbon was left over from a bits and pieces swap and I thought that this was just the right piece for this challenge. The white Hello is also a Cuttlebug die. I had fun making this card. Enjoy

My home version of the Stair step card

Back again to share with you my Asian doll stair step card that I made at home this afternoon. Found it much easier doing it at home and as I said I love doing these kinds of cards. Where do the ideas come from  I am always wondering. Any way enjoy the card with the Asian dolls.

another stair step card made at class on February 16 2010


Hi again thought I would share with you all the card that I made yesterday at card class with Lorraine. Its a stair step card with images of shoes being the focal point here. I like doing cards like this with the mountain and valley fold that make up the pattern for this card and I loved the deep red cardstock that we used for it as well. Enjoy the card

Hoping I can upload these cards now

I have made these cards during this last week but had problems uploading earlier today so will
try again now and hope that it works for me.

Having some trouble

Seems like Blogger doesn't want me to upload all my cqrds today so will give it another go later on this afternoon or this evening.

Cards created this week


I have been having fun creating cards this week using some techniques I don't use very often
I went along to my weekly card class on Monday and did these two Sprielli and Paper Pricking cards.
We used the shapes cut out from the nestabilites circles range.
The cute girly image card is my interpretation of a Bright and Sassy swap I am on.
The Valentines card was inspired from a book I have just brought called "Flower Power
Papercrafts by Julie Hickey. This book has some great cards and other projects in it
And the two Iris folded cards are me just practising for the Iris folding class we are
Doing this coming Monday.
