Pink Posies

 
I have been resisting buying the GoPress & Foil machine for some time now but I caved in and purchased one.  I have been experimenting a little and created the background for this card using an embossing folder. It's not perfect but for a first attempt its not too bad. I am entering this card in the Scrapbook Boutique Blog Challenge. I used the pink and gold as my inspiration.

Scaredy Cat

 
 
I am running late to get my entry into the Scrapbook Boutique Challenge this month. I used the cat and colour from the mood board as my inspiration.

Wishing for Spring


This is the card I am entering in this months Scrapbook Boutique blog challenge. Each month we are given a mood board for inspiration. With spring just around the corner I decided to use the bird as my inspiration.
The background "leafy" panel was cut on the Silhouette Cameo. I stamped the bird with distress ink and did very little colouring as I wasn't sure how the Copic marker would react with the ink but as you can see it worked well.

Gold is the New Black


 
 
It was a milestone birthday for a male family member this past week. I am usually at a loss when it comes to male cards but when I saw the mood board for the June Challenge on Scrapbook Boutique, where the theme this month is "Gold is the New Black", it gave me some much needed inspiration.

Birthday Chick

 
My card for the May Outlawz Progressive/Freebie Challenge features this super cute image supplied to us by Di's Digi Stamps.
 
I coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils, cut out and popped up on dimensionals. The background dp was a free download from "Free Pretty Things for You". The "Happy" cutout was designed by me and cut using the Silhouette Cameo.
