Granddaughters 21st Birthday

Pink pearlescent base card with backing paper from Debbi Moore magazine.  The Image and Border and from a Debbi Moore CD and I have added the name printed from the PC.  I have added some gems to the image and card candy to the border.  I have used border peel-offs around all the edges to finish it off.  The sentiment was printed from the PC and cut with a nesties oval shape and layered onto a bed of feathers.

40th Birthday

Lilac base card with backing paper from Papermania. I have added a few gems to the centre of some of the flowers and on the base of the sentiment. The large flower is from a set from £land. The number 40 is a free download from imag-e-nation and I have cut up a peel off to make the name. Snetiment is printed from the PC.

Grand-daughter Christmas

I was asked to make a card for a 16 year old and I toyed with this card for ages.  I have used a red base card and added border embossing folder down the edges.  I printed the image from Debbi Moore Funky Divas CD and layered it onto silver mirror card. I printed the sentiment from Hallmark Studios and layered it onto silver mirror card cut with nesties.  The Holly leaves are punched and embossed with an X-cut Punch.  I have added some peel off baubles and a Dovecraft Glittered Ribbon.  I hope this fits the challenge over at Less is More which is Polka Dots.  I hope my ribbon with the spots on it and the berries on my embossed edges will be seen as Polka Dots.  LOL!!  Thanks for your comments and I think I got carried away and forgot it is meant to be CLEAN & SIMPLE!!!  Sorry about that folks.  LOL!!!

It's a coctail theme over at Less is More this week so I have dedcided to use this little embossing folder with the two glasses on it.  I inked up the bows on the folder with my Promarkers so that only the bows would come out coloured.  I layered them onto some deep pink card.  I printed the sentiment from the pc and cut the shapes with Labels4 Nesties. The ribbon is from the Fizzy Moon range and I made the bow with my bowmaker.  There is still plenty of white space so I hope this is okay for this challenge.

Christmas Stepper Card

All the images are from Debbie Moore Cd that came free with the lastest Magazine.  I have used a silver pearlescent card as the base and used my Hougie Board for the layout.  I have added some gold peel - offs just to finish it off.

I missed the Less is More challenge last week as I am still having problems with my PC.  I am using my laptop and I am missing my PC so much.  Anyway I thought I would give this weeks challenge a go.  I have used a plain red card that has a white back to it.  The hearts were punched out with a Martha Stewart Lace Heart Punch and the sentiment is a stamp I found in my stash.  I added a little pearl heart just to finish it off.  I hope this is okay for the challenge.

Hougie Wedding Card

Not been on for a while as my PC is in the hospital.  All my programmes are on that so I am having to download some free programmes to get me going on my laptop.  Well I made this wedding card with my Hougie board.  I am slowly getting to grips with this board but it is taking me ages.  I am trying to follow the instructions in the Hougie booklet just to get some practice.  I have used a lemon pearlescent card for this and cut the borders with Martha Stewart Lace Heart Punch using pearlescent paper. I printed the sentiment from the PC directly onto pearlescent paper and layered onto silver mirror card. I cut the shapes out with my.  Nesties Labels 4.  The Bows and Card Candy are from my stash. The flower is handmade my Lee [aka KitchenGodess] from the docrafts forum and you should check out her blog and all her handmade flowers at :-
