Wedding Cake Card

Less is More Challenge 72 - Something Shiny

Not had much time to blog lately as last weekend we were up north for my cousin's wedding and hubby was doing the photo's with me helping, after the main photos were done I had 5 minutes to freshen up and change then back down to enjoy a lovely meal and dance after.  Still couldn't wear heels after hurting my foot the week before (all your kind words were appreciated, thankfully nothing was broken , but it has taken a while to walk normally and its still a bit stiff) I had to wear flats to the dance and this meant I had to rethink my outfit, so the white linen trousers came to the rescue!

Anyway onto my card.  Not sure about you but when I get asked to make two cards for the same person , on the same colour scheme ,I panic that I wont be able to come up with two different cards. I finally did. then I realised I needed a third from myself!! I will post the other two later. Incidentally , these were for a friend, not my cousin.

The first one I did had to tie in with the invites so that was easy then for the 2nd one, having seen a picture of her cake I decided to replicate the cake in card.

First I created the 3 tier cake in shimmer card then did a diagonal half of each tier in the zebra paper, then added a strip of silver mirri card ( not shown very well in photo) between the two halves, added in a few punched flowers with some shiny jewels, a few hearts punched from glitter card stuck to some wire coming out the top of the cake and it was done.the sentiment was done on the pc and the cake placed on 3d pads.

I am entering this into the Less is More challenge something shiny .

LIM 70 Colour Challenge

Less is More challenge this week is Red, White and Blue, not sure if this isn't clean and simple enough for Lim but I'm sure the lovely ladies will let me know, quite liked this colour combo as ideal for a man, so much so I made a couple of variations for some orders here.
now I think I may have to pop off to hospital for an x ray as I went over on my foot yesterday and not sure if its a bit too sore for just a sprain! 

Thanks for looking and and comments are always appreciated.

New Baby Girl

New babies and weddings are keeping me out of mischief but also not giving me much time to blog or blog hop to visit you, I am going to try and get around to it tonight after a promised walk with my daughter.

This little set was a gift to new grandparents at my hubby's work , a small album to put piccies of their gorgeous first grandchild in.

I used Louie for Digistamp Boutique and have also entered it into their May challenge.  he has been coloured with prismas and the paper is docrafts spring chic.

Sketch & Stash 87

Hi All 

After making black and white invites etc for the last  few weeks , I was desperate for a splash of colour I decided to make a card for the Sketch and Stash challenge (87) so I have used a LOTV that was free with a mag a while ago and I also coloured it then and never used it , all the papers are from my scraps stash. and the ribbon has been in my box for ages . The sentiment is Craftwork cards and so is the pink flower ( I think ) the lilac is a prima flower .  The image has been coloured with prismas and was a very easy image to colour , I am more of a digi person but I think I may have to visit LOTV very soon.
She is a cutie isn't she ?
As mentioned I have entered this into the sketch and stash challenge 87  here .
Thanks for looking and if you leave a comment I will visit you too 
Love K xx

Less is More Week 57 Neutrals

Sadly my friends dad died suddenly last week, 2 of my kids are best friends with 2 of hers and her dad was lovely to my kids when they went to his house to play with hers.  I have made this card for her. I have also made a second card for her mum which I will post later.

I have stamped a swirl cant remember what make with Versa wheat, placed a strip of black embossed card, added a craftwork cards sentiment and a natural prima flower, with a punched black one and a pearl in the centre. A couple of pearls on the swirls to finish.

I made two small 100 x 100 cards with some leftover checked paper from another card, I have used two small images from Teddy Bo, I distressed the edges of image and paper with my distressing tool and some 'happy birthday' rub ons to finish.
As they have both been made with scraps I am entering them into Less is More , 'don't scrap it' this week.

thank you for visiting and if you leave a comment I will try my best to visit you back

I only have eyes for You ! & Less Is More Week 54 One Layer /Stripes

Having messed up Less is more week 52 by doing my card on a square card, I didn't post it, so I was determined to try this weeks challenge of One Layer with stripes. I have also decided that I am rubbish at stamping having wasted 5 card blanks trying to stamp an image onto the card , I gave up and  I printed a digital image from Pollycraft straight onto the card with the sentiment and coloured him and his stripy tummy with prismas.  My 11yr old son is giving this to his girlfriend tomorrow but he thought it a bit plain so I added a red ribbon across the top to satisfy him.

Thanks for looking K x

Love is in the Air!

There seem to be a lot of Love is in the Air challenges so made this card for a special friend, as we all love our special friends and although not a valentine thought this still suited with this Coco image from Digistamp Boutique, a favourite of mine, I think it suited the bill perfectly.

Coco has been coloured with prismas. The papers are I think doodlebug and the sentiment from Craftwork Cards, everything else is from my stash.

I am going to enter into the following challenges:

Anyway onto my card , the image is from Pollycraft   (the image came from a bargain bundle of 60 images) which I have made a bit smaller and typed the sentiment on the left , it has been coloured with promarkers and the checked paper is from a papermania pad, a bit of stickles glitter and a few gems finished it off.

60th Birthday & A 50th Birthday

Had a busy day today with a bit of shopping then making a birthday tea for my Dad who is 72 on Monday, so this is just a quick post before I head off to bed , I needed a 60th and a 50th card in a hurry so decided it would be quicker to use the same layout with a variation on colour and embellishments , these are what I came up with. 

Hope you like and thanks for visiting K xxx
