Sugar Bowl Challenge and Magnolia vs Stampavie Challenge

Sugar Bowl Challenge - Friendship

What a great start to 2009 a brand new challenge blog - Sugar Bowl Challenge - especially for lovers of Sugar Nellie Stamps, now those who know me know I am totally addicted to these great stamps so just couldn't resist this one. The rules for joining in the challenge are posted on the side bar of The Challenge Blog, make sure you read them carefully. The Design team have created some great cards to give us inspiration so just click Here and pop over there, you will also see the FANTASTIC candy to be won by 1 lucky person 3 Sets of COPICS can you believe it!!!!!


The first challenge is an amazing sketch by Tiets, thanks for sketch Teits I shall use it again and again. The papers used on this card are a mixture of Basic Grey and DaisyD's they have all been matted onto Red Card. The cute Elizabeth Bell Stamp has been coloured with Copics, sentiment is from Autumn Leaves. The rest from stash.



I have managed to keep up my promise to decorate the inside and back of my cards (don't know how long this will last)I have used off cuts from the DaisyD's paper and punched two borders with the MSDP, and have used Nesties Labels to cut the white card which has been stamped with a Penny Black Sentiment Stamp, I have also cut two more labels for the other side of the card and added a couple of Prima Flowers. I forgot to take a pitcure of the back of the Card, Oppps!!



Magnolia vs Stampavie - A Thank You Card


Welcome to the first challenge for 2009 on Magnolia vs Stampavie, Donna has provided us with a sketch for this challenge which must be made into Thank you Card. There are some really nspirational cards by my fellow DT Members on the blog and also a brilliant prize for one lucky person this week. Dew Drop Crafts have donated a cute fairy stamp so come on pop over and have a go.

Tilda has a new hairstyle for 2009, I am sure Edwin will think she looks beautiful, she is a stamp from the new Valentines Release. The papers I have used are from Cosmo Cricket, I just love their designs. Tilda has been coloured with Copics and attached to the papers with sticky pads. The ribbon is from imaginice. The Thank You sentiment was cut on the Cricut and then glittered. Flowers from stash.

I used left over scraps from the 12 x 12 paper for the inside, using two different styles of Nesties. All the edges have been distressed with Worn Lipstick Distress Inks, I have left the white card blank to add a sentiment later. I also used the MSDP on the bottom of the large piece of Cosmo Cricket Paper.

And finally the back was made by using more scraps and My Handmade By stamp, I could not find my round nesties and the punch was just a little small for this image so it is not as good as it should be. OMG what a long post ARE YOU STILL HERE!!!!!! if you are
Thanks for looking
Hugs
