My DT Project for the Creative Craft Cottage

Hi guys, as you all know I recently became a member of the Creative Craft Cottage Design Team B!
The Creative Craft Cottage host craft challenges every few weeks and the challenge this week was Washi Tape.

For my card I used 1.5cm and 1cm Washi Tape and alternated them with small gaps in-between to create my background. I then die cut my square topper and used a large Happy Birthday stamp for the sentiment which I coloured using both Spectrum Noir and Pro Marker Pens. I Then made 3 different flowers each of which I embossed and coloured & added them to the bottom of the sentiment.
For the finishing touch I used Pastel Pearls to line the top of the card.

You can view this card plus the other DT Members Washi Tape cards and enter the challenge yourself here:

Boys Cards

After spending the last few months making Valentine Cards, Mothers Day Cards, New Baby Cards & Birthday Girl Cards I decided with a little inspiration from a friends little boy's birthday to spend a few days on Boy's/Men's Cards.

So here's a peek at my Boy Theme Cards (Sorry about the bad quality pictures I am awaiting a new camera)

8x8 Sports Birthday Card
Made using Black Adorable Scorable Card Stock with a Silver Guilding Flake Border.
The toppers are from the Kanban Urban Collection and I stamped the Sentiment.
Both the topper & sentiment are backed on Silver Mirri Board that has been Embossed with a Dolice Flame Embossing Folder

A5 Gardeners Birthday Card
Very Simple Card. Base Card is Hunkydory Adorable Scoreable Mint Green Card Stock 
Gold Mirror Board Matting. The Green Topper mat has been stamped with a Kanban Daisy Stamp then Embossed with Dolce Dotty Embossing Folder. I also used Grey cord for the Sign Posts.

8x8 U R Awesome Happy Birthday card
I printed stripes on to some Adorable Scorable Card Stock & used toppers from the Kanban Urban Collection,
The toppers & sentiments are backed on to Silver Mirri Board that I embossed using Dolce Flame Embossing Folder. 

A5 Fast Cars Card
A very quick simple card using Holographic Silver Mirror Card for matting and layering.  
8x8 Happy Birthday Card
I printed both the backing paper & topper, I used transparent glitter to highlight some of the strips on the backing card and as a border for the topper. I Die-Cut the Sentiment then inked & glittered to match. I used a chipboard No4 & Heat Embossed it with Glitter Sky Embossing Powder.
