CHNC challenge 10: embossing

It's hard to believe that we are already into March and today sees the launch of CHNC challeng 10 - you can read more about it here.

And this week there is a prize - one randomly selected crafter will win a Papermania snowflakes embossing folder and a Stampavie Rachelle Anne Miller clear Snowman stamp.

I've used one of these embossing folders and stamp on my card for this challenge (the winner will get unopened products, not the ones that I've used - lol!).

The card I used with the embossing folder has a sparkly sheen to it which isn't visible here. I used the same card to stamp the snowman and coloured with copics.

Having already chosen the topic of 'embossing' for my challenge 10 I was surprised to see that this week Bah! humbug 9 is also asking for embossing, so I'm linking my card there. And today's Die cut dreams Christmas 56 is 'inspired by a song' - so this is for 'Frosty the snowman' - also for Try it on Tuesday: inspired by a song. It's also for Winter wonderland: snowflakes.

Please click here to have a look at this my challenge 10 and, hopefully, join in - don't forget, there is a prize.

I'm also linking this to a new challenge on Stamping Vacation called: name the challenge challenge - so this is my challenge for my own CHNC challenge 10, which can also be found here.

I am celebrating with some candy - you can read about it and sign up here - only a couple of days to go now - you've got to be in it to win it!

Another commissioned 80th birthday card

This is the third commissioned 80th birthday card I've made today, this time intertwining two decoupaged groups of flowers (had to use two because it's a large card), with matching simmery paper on the right (sorry, you can't see the shimmer here, but it really is shimmery) . The main background paper is HOTP.

This is for:

Pastel 80th birthday card

This is the second commissioned 80th birthday card, this time using pastel colours and pyramage. The background paper is HOTP - just the addition of gem stones at the corners, on the sentiment and in the middle of the flowers.

The pastel colours were inspired by the photo for Cupcake inspirations 100:

Lace and pearls for 80th birthday

I needed to get 4 80th birthday cards made today, so here is the first one. I (loosely) used the sketch for Limelight 68, which also called for the use of pearls. Because the card needed to be a large one I didn't make it circular, but have used the circle part of the sketch - hope that's OK:

The background paper is Bo Bunny persuasion sweet. Flowers, pearls, white lace and butterflies all from stash.
