Creative Inspiration Challenge

This is the 1stproper challenge I have entered.
And this is also the 1st challenge for the New Blog.

I am not sure if I am supposed to explain what I used on my project. But I will do so anyways .

The theme is use something black , anything ,but black must be on the card someplace.

So I used black card stock . I normaly only use black cardstock for halloween cards, so this was weird for me. But I think the end result is really pretty !
The papers I used are some from a digital scrap kit I got. I dont remeber where from.
The vellum is from PaperMania .
I used pink ribbon , and I punched the flowers with a giga punch I have and then put pink brads in the center.

The Image is from The Greeting Farm, It is a digital Anya image . And she is very very pretty !
I used Sakura Glaze and Stardust pens on her. I also used Whisper Strokes Markers for the bright vivid colours.

Thanks for Looking :)

Valentines Card

This is the card I am giveing
my husband on Valentines Day.

I used digital paper that I printed off. I dont remeber where I got them from. I download a lot of kits for digital scrapbooking. The good thing about these types of papers, is you can resize them !!And print them again and again and again LOL

I also used pink peach ribbon ,Sakura Glaze pens, and red glitter.

I used a Cuttlebug Embossing folder on the bottom half of the card .

And the stamp is a Pink Poison "Anya" Stamp.
She is so pretty .I coloured her in with Whisper Strokes markers. I did not make them water colour. I wanted her outfit to be bright . I did change it afterwards to fit my card. I cut away the halo.

And my tag , well I dont have many stamps with words on them . So I found a font I liked and printed off my saying.
Thanks for Looking.

Just For You

This is a Just For You card I
made for a friend of mine.

This Fairy is 3-d, it is hard to tell
from the picture,unless you look at her up close.
She is not a stamp. It's an image
from a fairy artist named
Jasmine Becket-Griffith.
She does do some 3-d decoupage .
But this image I printed off 4 times
and cut out what I wanted to
make the 3-d effect.

I used Sakura Glaze and Stardust pens &Lots of Red Glitter :)
The tag is from some left over grey
and black paper I
printed off for another project.

I also used grey coloured pencils
to pop the limbs out from the background.

Thanks for Looking :)

This set of cards I made with a template I found online. I really like it....the apron of the dress lifts up, to reveal your message :)

I used brads, ribbon, buttons , and some star flower sticky gems.

I dont remeber where I found the papers from.....but they were from an online blog or site to download for I took a piece of cardstock that had a pretty print on one side.....and then printed the paper on the other when it is all cut out and have the 2 patterns .
But now they have papers that are double
sided ...which are great for this project !!!
The baby doll dress is mounted onto a piece of cardstock can not open this card up....hence the apron effect :)
