Cute card Thursday

On Cute Card Thursday we were told........

This week we have another fabulous sponsor, Maggie at Banyan Crafts.

Maggie is donating a pack of gorgeous tear shaped cards with envelopes, there are 20 cards in the pack!

To be in with a chance of winning these next week all you have to do is create a card without using patterned paper.

I have had this angel type stamp for quite some time now but have not used her before. It is from Anita's stamps but does not appear to have a name. I stamped her onto white card with Versafine ink in grey and coloured her using shimmery watercolour paints.
She is layered up onto a piece of peach cardstock which has been embossed using the D'vine Swirls folder from Cuttlebug. This has been layered onto a piece of white card leaving just a small border and finally onto a pale pink card. All layers have had the corners rounded off with a punch.

Race for Life

Our ex Daughter in Law, Emma, is doing the Race for Life somewhere in the Leicestershire area on Sunday so I made a card to wish her well.
I used a cream square card and overlaid it with a piece of lilac paper on which I printed the words 'Put Those Party Shoes Away' on the computer.
On the left I put a piece of purple cardstock which had been through the Cuttlebug with the D'vine Swirls folder.
I used gold peel-offs on a pink die cut square and mounted this with a foam pad on top of some skeleton leaves. A purple star gem completes the card.
The gem, die cut and skeleton leaves are all from Papermania.
