Hi i really enjoyed doing this bright & cheery card for the Glitternsparkle challenge 126, the theme was 'anything goes'. Our sponsor this week was Crafty Sentiments & the image i used was 'Tess summer fun'. I used Promarkers to colour the image which i then die cut into a circle, inked around with green & layered onto a scalloped circle die cut, edged inside with orange ink. I used a bracket shape for my base card & matted a hot pink polka dot die cut square on top then repeated the same with another two layers. I cut up a Tattered Lace circle die to use to embellish the corners with, added a stamped sentiment, pearls, flowers & punched leaves. I thought we could do with some summery reminders to cheer us up. Happy crafting x

For the Glitternsparkle challenge 125 the theme was black&white. Our sponsor was Stitchybear stamps & i used image 'Floral frame 1'. I matted 4 layers alternate black & white card onto a custom made card blank, on the top layer i used a Spellbinders embossing folder on Centura Pearl card. I cut the centre from an oval die cut & coloured it black then layed it on top of the remaining white diecut. I coloured some of the floral frame image black then cut it out & placed it on top, then i stamped & cut out a sentiment as the final layer. Although the photo doesn't pick it up i added accents of Stickles in Black Diamond. Finally i added a satin bow & jewel embellishment. This made a very heavyweight card, giving it a quality feel. x

Hi, i made this box card for Challenge 127 the theme is decorate inside & out. The image is Strawberry Muffin from our sponsor Sunflower Field. After colouring the image, using Spectrum Noir pencils, I cut it out & mounted it on the frame (which i tinted with a pastel green Promarker) of a box card i made. I chose images from Hunkydory 'Dreams of Spring' to decorate the inside & decoupage the front. I added pink glitter (Sparkleicious from Chloe) & pearls to the sentiments. Hope you like it, it makes me feel hungry for cake when i look at it!!! Happy crafting x

Hello there, here's my entry for the Glitternsparkle challenge 124, the theme is glitter n gems.
The image used is Poppy elf from Aurora Wings & is coloured with Promarkers & Spectrum Noir pencils then mounted on card which i glittered around the edges with Diamond Sparkles. Behind the image is a Spellbinder diecut which i cut in white & another in green glitter card. Everything is mounted on a white framed stepper card on which i layered white embossed card. I covered decoupage flowers with Sparkle film before cutting out & applying clear dazzlers to the centres. Then i added white poppies, punched leaves & gems which i coloured with one of the Promarkers i had used in the image. I did the same for the sentiment which is backed with a smaller version of the same die. The photo doesn't pick it up but the card is REALLY sparkly! Please feel free to leave a comment as i'd love to hear from you, happy crafting x

Hi everyone, hope you're having a great day. My laptop has been poorly but is now home from hospital. Here is my card for the Glitternsparkle DT challenge 123 theme is 'Love is in the air'. The sentiment digi is #420 Cinderella quote from Stamping Boutique & is mounted on two outline hearts. I embossed a small heart design onto white card which I edged with Ruby Promarker then I cut two tattered lace dies, coloured one in Ruby then offset the white one on top, I then cut off the bridal veil & the lower half to fit into a tattered lace diecut heart. I stamped red flowers onto white card, trimmed to fit & adhered to bottom of card. I then embellished with ribbon, gems & inked diecut hearts The whole design was then mounted onto a custom size white card. Please feel free to leave a comment, I'd love to hear from you, kind regards x

Hi & welcome, hope you're having a great day. Here is the latest card I designed for the Glitternsparkle DT challenge122  the theme was anything goes & the image was from Patties Creations entitled Waterlilies.

Pale aqua paper was used on a vintage stepper card blank from Whichcraft then inked around the edges with pale teal ink then lace was added.I also similarly coloured the frame but added green to it then embossed it with pale gold glitter effect (photo doesn't pick this up) to look like verdigris. The image is printed on white Centura Pearl card & coloured  with Promarkers & Spectrum Noir pencils then decorated with flowers, pearls & diecut butterfly all in peachy pink, aqua & soft white shades. I stamped a sentiment & mounted on matching background. I enjoyed doing this card & loved the Waterlilies image. Please feel free to leave a comment if you wish. Happy crafting. x
