Cupcake Craft - Teddy Bo & Bea - Love is to Share

It's Monday and I'm feeling a little sad for two reasons, it's my last week as a guest designer for Cupcake Craft Challenge and it's the first day back to work after two weeks of relaxation (groan).
On to a more cheery note, here is my card for the Cupcake Craft Challenge - Cooking Up a Storm.
It was a friends engagement party at the weekend so I made this card for them.
Whilst purchasing digi stamps from the Teddy Bo website, I came across this freebie image and just had to use it.
Materials used:
Card/Paper - Grey Bazzill, silver pearlescent paper, Ella Blue by GCD Studios
Image - Teddy Bo Freebie, coloured with Prisma Pencils
Sentiment/Wording - Love - chipboard letters distress inked and finished with 3D clear gloss, names - computer generated
Embellishments/Flowers - ~Wild Orchid and local craft shop

Thanks for stopping by today and thank you to those of you who have left comments over the past month, hopefully I will be able to catch up now everything is back to normality.

Cupcake Craft - Wedding Napkin Card

It's Monday and time for another challenge from Cupcake Craft.This week the talented team have come up with a sketch for you to follow. Be sure to check out their designs for lots of inspiration.
My card has been made to celebrate a Wedding that is on the horizon for a work colleague.

I have made a napkin fold card. Here is the inside.
So that the card would stand up on its own I have attached the design to a square card and decorated inside. This also gives enough space for all to sign their name.

Materials Used:
White Bazzill for the base, Tilda Papercraft Lavender Stack by Panduro.
Image & Sentiment - Lili of the Valley -
Copics - C0,C1,C3,C5, Pinks (didn't write these down)
Nestability Die
Ribbon, Lace, Stickles and Wild Orchid Flowers.

Thanks for stopping by today

Today is the Cupcake Craft Challenge with the theme, "Boy, Oh Boy"

Image/ Football paper & Cup - Kanban
Copics - BG000, B12, B95, YG03, YG11, G82, E000, E00, E02, E21, C1, C2, C3, C5, black Prisma Pencil

Tails of the Unexpected - Guest Designer Cupcake Craft Challenges

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you had a good weekend with lots of crafting.

Be sure to click on the above link to see the amazing work by the design team.
This card came together very quickly because everything used in its creation was on my desk! In fact most of my craft room contents is on my desk. I'm so embarrassed by the mess I have to keep the door shut at all times. I always have good intentions of putting everything away but it takes away my crafting time!

Image  -  Lili of the Valley - A5 Stamps Occasions Set
Copics - W0, W1, W2, W5, YG03, G82, R17, R27
Hidden Sentiment  -  Computer generated
Embellishments  -  Gingham ribbon, String, Wild Orchid Flowers, Faux Stitching, Martha Stewart Punch

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:
Dream Valley Challenges - No.8 Stamp Something
Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturdays - What's on your desk right now?

Thanks for dropping by today.
