Teen Terrors!

Over on the Tilda and Friends ATC Challenge site the theme this week is Teen Terrors.

This is my contribution, the first time i've taken part as until I really looked at the site this morning didn't realise that the images didn't need to be Tildas.
The stamp is Oliver Cool from Lili of the Valley. The shirt is paper pieced and the rest of him is coloured with polychromos and sansodor. The shirt and backing papers are from the citrus pad by HOTP. The wording is made from peel-off letters.

Anniversary wishes

It was our 35th Wedding Anniversary earlier in the month, this is the card I made for Mick using Popcorn Bear Floral cd. I've printed the image onto cream pearlescent paper and decoupaged the layers with foam pads.
This is on a background of spotty vellum from Making Cards magazine which has been held in place at the corners with a touch of glue covered with a self adhesive pink gem.
The border is from the same cd and the greeting is a peel-off. All on an A5 cream card.

Mum's birthday

My Mum's birthday is today and this is the card I made for her using papers and my adaptation of an idea from the July issue of Making Cards magazine. All I added apart from the white card base was some pink card and silver mirror board for layering and some pink self adhesive gems.

Making Cards is the only magazine I regularly buy as the papers and vellums given free each month are such good quality and there are usually some super card ideas to go with them. I try to make at least 2 cards from each issue and as I do so come up with more ideas of my own. It is nice to have a starting point though to begin with.
