Seize The Birthday Challenge - Sweet Treats

By the time you see this post, I will be boarding a plane heading for a quick European vacation! First stop Scotland before heading onto London and finally Paris. I am taking this trip with my mum and it is the first time either of us have been over there, so we are VERY excited! I am sure you will be seeing some photos pop up here when I return. 

For now though I would like to welcome you
to another great challenge over at Seize the Birthday!

Our "Toppings" option this time is right up my alley...

" Sweet Treats"

I have such a sweet tooth, so I am excited to see how people interpret this fun challenge.



Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!


If your not a toppings kinda person, well.....you can just

stick with our usual "Anything Goes"Birthday!


The choice is yours!


Here is my 'sweet' card. I coloured these adorable cupcakes using Copic markers.


Supplies:
Stamps: My Favorite Things

Just Add Ink Challenge #230 - Just Add Dad

Hello friends!

With Father's Day just a few days away here in Australia, we thought this week would be a great time to have a masculine card challenge over at Just Add Ink.  If you don't want to necessarily make a Father's Day card, feel free to make a general masculine themed card.

Here is what I made for this week's challenge. I pulled out a very old stamp set from Stamp It which I coloured and and then cut out before mounting onto the centre panel.


Supplies:
Stamp: Nautical Trio from Stamp It, sentiment is from Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: All card and DSP from Stampin' Up!
Other: Copic Markers, scalloped border punch and embossing folder from SU!

Just Add Ink #228 - Colour Challenge

Hello again!
I'm back today with the new challenge over at Just Add Ink, which is a gorgeous colour combination using some of the new Stampin' Up! colours. But remember, if you don't have these exact ink pads you can use a similar colour.


Here is the card I made. It looks quite clean and simple, but it took me a few failed attempts and 3 days to get it done! I don't even know why but I just couldn't get the look I was going for and was having trouble colouring the image to my satisfaction.



Supplies: 
Stamps: Flowers by Paper Smooches, sentiment by My Favorite Things
Cardstock: Stampin' Up!
Other: Sequins by Doodlebug, Copic Markers, Wink of Stella Pen, stitching.

There is still time to play along with this week's challenge over at Just Add Ink!  And this week it's JUST ADD CHIPBOARD! How fun is that?

I have had this card half done all week but things have just been so crazy busy around here I only just finished it late last night.

I covered the little chipboard word 'hello' with the coordinating paper from my card, then covered it with crystal effects.



Supplies: 
Stamp: My Favorite Things
Paper: Maja Design Patterned Paper, Stampin' Up! Whisper White card stock
Other: Seam binding by SU!, Kaiser Pearls, stitching, crystal effects.
