Chocolate cupcake

This is for the sketch for Critter 125:

All papers are offcuts and the stamped image is from a Kanban cake set coloured with copics with the edge also bordered with a copic.

This is also for Cupcake inspirations 171 where this inspiration picture was given:

Pretty in pink

For this card I've used elements from the Hunkydory The Tea Party collection, adding some flowers and a sentiment.

Colours were prompted by The shabby tea room 124: oh so pretty in pink photo inspiration (we were also asked to use a flower as well as the colours):

Yet another angel

Having made a mess of a card earlier this afternoon - I got sticky bits on the acetate (not a good look!), so it went into the bin - I decided that perhaps I could rescue some of it. So I careful took the acetate off and used the glittered picture from underneath to layer up with an offcut of the Kanban card used for one of the earlier cards shown below. I stuck it down before I thought about the holes left from where there had been brads, so they are now covered with some gems and I've added a sentiment raised up with some 3D foam.

Another Christmas angel

This is another card very similar to the previous one, made from components of the 'all wrapped up' Kanban Christmas kit.

Once again, the printed acetate overlays the glittered picture and is held in place by brads.

This is another card for Dawn's Christmas Card Club challenge to include an angel.

Christmas angel

It was Dawn's turn to choose a theme for today's Christmas Card Club challenge (a group of us have got together to produce a Christmas card every fortnight - details of the group in my sidebar) and Dawn asked us to include an angel on our Christmas card.

I've made a couple of angel cards in the last few days (was tempted to use one of those for the challenge, but thought I would be good and do another specially for it) - I've made a step card from the Kanban 'all wrapped up' kit that I bought fairly recently.

Unfortunately, the first card I made went into the bin, otherwise there would be been two - this is the second such card I've wasted in a couple of days because of trying to rush and then getting sticky marks on the acetate.

Anyway, this card has an acetate layer that has been printed with the same picture as the underneath one - that one is glittered so the glitter then shows through the acetate. It's not possible to capture this properly in the photo, but I've done the best I can.

Warmest wishes

For this card (which I made yesterday - not started making any today!) I've used a digital image from Cute Daisy May's Daisy and friends CD - this is Daisy with her Christmas tree. The background paper is an offcut of Basic Grey Dasher flannel shirt, and the bottom piece is an offcut of some unknown card that was left over. The ribbon was free with a magazine and the sentiment was computer generated and printed.

This is another card for my CHNC challenge 83: tie a ribbon.
