The Sugar Bowl #62

Here we have my card for The Sugar Bowl challenge with the extra of summer. These wee guys were already coloured and crying out to be used. So I used more digi papers from Sweet shoppe Designs - High Octane by Heather Roselli. I've kept it pretty simple really, but think the image goes with that. I don't think you can get this stamp anymore - Hamish and Maggie from Sugar Nellie. The fun has been die cut using sizzix sizzlet dies.

The Sugar Bowl #61

I have a couple of things to show today. First up I have my entry for The Sugar Bowl where the theme is Love/Weddings. So I thought this was the only stamp I had suitable for it (not so I guess when you really look at the stamps). Anyway, I decided to use the Tartan ribbon, so was kinda limited as to what paper I could use. The paper is from a Crafters Companion CD - Love 2. They are a little redder than I thought, but hey ho - they still work. I have embossed the circle with a heart Cuttlebug embossing folder. The sentiment is Lili of the Valley. I have also added 3 flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts with some Papermania gem brads in the centre.

And secondly I have made a bag from a Tutorial from Simply Sassy. I have been eyeing this up for a while and finally got round to making it - Love it. It so isn't how I started out, but I'm liking it (I think). Not too sure if the bunch of flowers is too much, but it's stuck now. I have a pink feather behind the flowers too - found it among some real old stash, so thought - why not. Used Martha Stewart Cherish punch for the bottom border and added a few punched MS butterflies and added some pearls on there too. And as there is a pin among the flowers, thought I would enter it into the challenge over at Cute Card Thursday where the theme is pins and pearls. The paper is Papermania and I used nesties to cut out the handles. Now I just have to find something nice to put in it. Although Big Sis has been known to just get an empty box (oops), but - hey she's loved them anyway.

The Sugar Bowl #60

Oops - nearly forgot to post this one. My card for the challenge over at The Sugar Bowl. Kept it pretty simple again. The papers are a download from Sweet shoppe designs, and some lace and flower from Wild Orchid crafts with a gem brad in the centre. Coloured with polychromos and cut out with my nesties, and the sentiment is Craftwork cards.
