2 for 1

This week on Cute Card Thursday the subject is 'Back to School'

I made the toppers for these 2 cards yesterday and just finished them. They are for my 2 Grandaughters. The youngest starts 'proper' school on her 5th birthday next week and the eldest moves up to Junior school. The stamped image is from Paper Nation and has been coloured with Promarkers and cut using Nesties. The oval has been coloured on the edges with purple or red ink to match the backer which is from a pad I have had for ages, think it's a sizzix one. The other backer is card put through a Cuttlebug embossing folder, again with inked edges. The greeting is a silver peel-off.

Crafter's Companion #5

On the Crafter's Companion challenge blog this week we have been asked to use blue as the main colour while still following a sketch.
This is Tina's sketch for us to follow. This is my card using backing paper printed from the Cute Companions cd and a stamp from the Popcorn Bear Christmas collection.
Sleepy little Souffle has been stamped onto lemon card with Grey Versafine ink and coloured with watercolour pencils. The image and blue backer have been cut with tag shaped Nesties and layered up at an angle to each other.
The peel-off greeting is on an oval cut with Nesties. 5 small blue self adhesive gems finish off the card.
