Peppa Pig Pop Up Box Card

Morning all don't faint with shock I'm back with a second post this week this one is a card I made for my gorgeous nephews 2nd birthday which is today. He is Peppa Pig mad so I made him a Peppa pop up box card I used the tutorial here to make the card base from a sheet of A4 card. I found a page of Peppa character finger puppets on one of the kid websites and cut them out and used them without the band to attach them to your fingers. The papers I used are from an old DCWV pad and I added a diecut sentiment and some diecut stars to finish it off.

Purple & Yellow at Incy Wincy

Bit of an odd colour combination this week over at Incy Wincy well at least it's not one I would usually go with Purple & Yellow. This week we are sponsored by Bugaboo stamps who provider me with this cute penguin image. I coloured the image up using my promarkers and added some stickles to the star and the die cut sentiment. The paper is a very old piece I found at the bottom of my christmas box so I have no idea where it is from. Thats it a very CAS card from me today don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT girls came up with this week.

Good morning quick post from me today as it's Monday that means it's time for a new challenge over at Incy Wincy where this week we want to see stripes on your projects. We are sponsored by Rick St Dennis this week and Creative Classes Online
I have used this fab image from Rick St Dennis called Winter Friends, I coloured him with pro markers adding sparkle to the snowflakes and the star with a sakura stardust pen. My paper is from Echo Park tis the season pad which I teamed with grey card.

Inspired By A Song, Book or Movie at Incy Wincy

Morning all hope you have all had a good weekend, we have had a busy one I spent Saturday moving all the cupboards around in the kitchen and then we went to see a stunt show in the evening which ended with a firework display. Sunday was spent moving the front room round ready for the colder weather sounds silly but we always block off the patio door with the sofa makes the room feel much cosier. Anyway the real reason your here is because its time for a new challenge over at Incy Wincy where this week we are sponsored by Kenny K. and our challenge this week is to be inspired by a song , book or movie
I've used this cute snowman form our sponsor who reminded me of the snowman from the film Jack Frost. I coloured him with my pro markers and added some googly eyes to him as the digi come without eyes drawn in ( and I can't draw eyes). My papers were from a MME pad which I can't find at the moment to tell you the name of.  I cut a frame from sticky back silver paper/film to go around the edge and added a die cut icicle border cut from the same across the middle. The sentiment is from a sheet of white shimmery peel offs which I've had forever in my stash.

Buttons & Bling at Incy Wincy

Good morning Monday again which means its time for a new challenge over at Incy Wincy where this week we want to see Buttons & Bling and our fantastic sponsor this week is  The Paper Shelter.
I have used this cute image from them called There's A Penguin In My Cocoa

 I have used the pre coloured version of this image along with the background paper that comes with it so this was a nice quick card for me. All I did was mount the paper onto some pearlesant card and the image I printed twice and fussy cut it to give it a decoupaged look. I added some red gems to the Christmas tree for the bling part of the challenge and for the buttons part I added some tiny clear star buttons next to the computer generated sentiment. I added a close up photo so you could see the tiny stars are buttons.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Jingle Bells

Now don't drop down dead I'm back with another card and it's not even a Monday!! Sorry about the lack of posts at the moment I seem to have hit a pothole in the crafting/blogging road and am struggling to get out of it. Today's card is one I made a while ago for S J Crafts DT, but before the challenge was due to go live Sarah decided to close down the challenges and I never got round to blogging my card. Not my normal type of card at all but I quite like it and it was super quick to make. I cut a square of card and covered it diagonally with two different washi tapes. I wrapped some white satin ribbon around this square tied simply in a knot and attached some tiny silver jingle bells to it. I mounted this square onto a card blank using foam pads and doodled some faux stitching around it. Lastly I added a Craftwork cards sentiment with some stickles around the edge.
