Kimmie Krafting Design Team Application Entry

Here are six photos of my Design Team Application for Kimmie Krafting. 
I used one of their stamps from Canine Capers set One, coloured it with Promarkers and even coloured in the background with a light Putty colour as I didnt want the plain white of the card to show through all over. It was then glued onto the backing die cut label one shape. I then got the A4 sheeet of pearlescent deep cream card from in the Lake District, scored the card to form the A5 basic card shape.  I covered the front of the card with a paper from a Polkadoodles cdrom Id got, then I turned the top right hand corner over and secured that with a brad through to the inside of the card. The stamped image topper was then placed on foam pads and stuck in the middle of the card. I then placed the clear faux gems on wire stems either side as well as two small bows made from pink ribbon with little dogs on. The finishing touch is the sentiment and the roses of two different sizes and two colourways.
All in all, a beautiful card that covers almost any occasion.

A couple of cards, both of which are Competition entries (Dawns Crafy Cards) and Jammi Panda Crafters

The above card was one of my competition entries, this time one of my Facebook friends regularly has a card swop with professional sponsers. It was to try and win set of stamps, very kindly sponsered by Sue Wilson. The challenge was to make a card using Sue's favourite colours of Teal Black & White. I was very pleased and enjoyed, such alot making the card,but obviously unhappy that I didnt win. The card size is an 8 x 8 inch with the fold on the DL fold/score line on any score board. The stamped image is from Lily of the Valley and coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers (on the skin only). All the leaves, the flower shapes and the scalloped square teal coloured card were cut with Spellbinders dies. All the items used in this make are from my own stock.

Jammi Panda Crafting...

The next lot of photos are of another challenge make, this time for a Facebook group
called Jammi Panda Crafting. Ive got a lot of friends on there and we are actually
meeting up, as a group very soon and I cant wait to meet everyone of those wonderful
friends face to face. Its also going to be so relaxing for me to be out and away from
home even if just for a short break. 
Anyway, back to the card, the challenge was to use all of the elements sent from boss
lady Fee, (Head Panda as we all call her) lol. The elements were sheets of papers and
images for decoupage or just usage as we wish. The only added item we had to use
was acetate. I used my acetate behind the stars to make them move!
