Playtime!

The Cuttlebug challenge today is to create a pop-up card. I've NEVER done before, and I am spatially-perceptually challenged (at BEST) so this was way outside my box! (lol) This is my first, using the Textiles Texture embossing folder with Core-dinations colour core cardstock, a computer generated sentiment, some Prima flowers and the Martha Stewart leaf and border punches. The inside looked a little plain, so I added another flower and a few beads from my ever expanding collection. ;) The sentiment outside is computer generated, and the sentiment inside is Impression Obsession. This one's also for the current Creative Card Crew challenge, which is to do something vintage. I always like the vintage look of this particular folder!





Well, I had such fun creating this one that I decided to do another for some very special little boys. The stamps are all Impression Obsession, and the eggs and the inside were cut with my Silhouette SD electronic cutter. This one fits the current Charisma Cardz challenge, which is "Springtime," and for the Pick Three challenge. (I used the colour combination of green, pink and yellow, my Silhouette (which I'm just getting back to this week, having owned it for a year!), and an image with an "S" (the silhouette diorama inside). I really liked this week's Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger too...hope my eggs fit theirs! ;) And the Wednesday Stamper challenge this week is EGGS!





Now over at Created by Hand, the challenge is "Don't worry be hoppy," so I cut this wee bunny with the Silhouette too, and stamped these beautiful flourish stamps along the borders, and the musical score on a paper flower. Once again, I used the Textiles Texture embossing folder...can you tell this is my very favourite folder? (lol) I DO have loads and loads of them, but I always seem to come back to this one. The challenge over at Cards blog is to use eight colours...this fits!

Thanks for visiting today,I'll try to stop by your place too! ;)

Gorgeous cards. Start from the top.... The first card love the elegance of the card and the beads on the inside are a gorgeous touch. The second card the inside is so delicate and beautiful. I need to get more silhouette images if that is generated from your silhouette and the jokes are priceless! The third card is adorable and perfect for your grandkids.
