Happy Birthday Challenge DT Card using Bugaboo Digi

Good Morning!
 
Today I bring you my Glitter 'N' Sparkle Challenge Blog DT card. The challenge theme this week is Happy Birthday - becuase it is the blog's 4th Birthday :) The digi stamp I used is from Bugaboo and is called Birthday Bear, I love this super cute bear - he knows how to party! Here is my card . . .   



I decided to match my colours to the backing paper and used Promarkers to colour. I stamped some dots on the striped paper to tie in with the present and die cut some stars from the glitter paper to add around the bear. Super cute!

BB8 Die-Cut and Hand Drawn Birthday Card

Hello Everyone!
 
Today I am sharing a card I made for my little Sister who is a huge fan of StarWars. I decided to try my hand at my own "fan art" design for her Birthday Card . . .
 

I studied the pics and cut some shapes, using Promarkers to colour pieces and pencil to sketch shapes out. I added torn papers to create a sandy like background. A simple greeting and name to finish with a few black gems.

Thanks for looking,

Anything Goes DT Challenge Card using Pattie's Creations Digi

Good Morning to you All!
 
Today I bring you my Glitter 'N' Sparkle Challenge Blog DT card. The challenge theme this week is Anything Goes. The digi stamp I used is from Pattie's Creations and is called Moon Fairy. I thought this digi was beautifully designed with an awesome composition. I released my inner artist and here is my card . . .   



I had a lot of fun using Disress Inks, water, White Pen, Promarkers and Glitter Glue. I kept going until I was pleased with this very colourful card. It was hard to know when to stop as I love to put lots of embellishments on but did refrain from doing so! No pearls or gems lol!

The challenge theme for this months challenge is Circles. The digi stamp I used is No.64B and is called Creepy Claire.

I die cut some circles out of the original front piece and layered book pages with distress inks behind the circles for texture. I die cut some stars and a Hello greeting and coloured pink to pop off the page.!

Add Some Metal Challenge DT Card using Scribble Designs Digi

Hello Everybody and Welcome Back!
 
Today I bring you my Glitter 'N' Sparkle Challenge Blog DT card. The challenge theme this week is Add some Metal. The digi stamp I used is from Scribble Designs and is called #8102 Firefly Mason Jar, which has matching backing papers and larger firefly. I thought this design was so cute and love the matching elements to work with. Here is my card . . .   



I decided to match my colours to the backing paper and used Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink for the night time feel of the background to the jar. I added glitter to the wings and threaded some metal wire round the jar lid, tied in a bow and added a little metal heart to finish. Super cute!

Pop Up 60th Birthday Box Card

Hello Everyone!
 
Today I am sharing a card I made for my mother-in-law's birthday. Needed to be special as it was a big birthday. I've been having a go at making a few pop - up box cards and here is the one I made (with my little help mate / monkey holding it in place - lol)
 

I used some pretty papers, stamped and punched some butterflies, flowers and letters, attaching with acetate to the card base and added a greeting to the front. Gems and pearls to finish the flower centres :)

Thanks for looking,
