Oh dear, I’m a little later than normal sharing my card for this week’s cupcake craft challenge, I just don’t know where the week has gone!! Our theme this week has been set by the lovely Maarit and she has chosen “material girl” (I bet you’re all singing Madonna’s song now lol!) Maarit wants you to use some form of material on your creations week so let’s see how adventurous you can be! I decided to be quite reserved (‘cos I couldn’t think of anything else) and I used felt! Here is my card:
I’m sorry my pictures are so bad, but I really struggled to get a decent one! I decided to go CAS on the layout and didn’t use any patterned paper at all – I know shock horror! The image is a super cute penny black stamp called ‘ladybug & hedgehog’ and I coloured it with promarkers. I used kraft card from dies to die for and two different embossing folders. The flower and chevrons were both cut out of felt, also from dies to die for. I didn’t add a sentiment as I thought it could be suitable for lots of different occasions.
We have two sponsors this week, first we have Digi Doodle Shop and they are offering one lucky winner a $10.00 gift certificate to spend in their online store. Our second sponsor is Quixotic Paperie and they are offering one lucky winner a £10.00 voucher to spend in their online store.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Addicted to stamps challenge – cakes and/or stitching
Paper sundaes challenge – let’s get cute
Kaboodle challenge – emboss it
The pink elephant challenge – hello sunshine (use yellow)
Deep ocean challenge – use punches/dies
Crafts and me challenge – embossing
Fab n funky challenge – no D.P.
My mum’s craft shop challenge – the great outdoors
Penny black Saturday challenge – no patterned paper
Crafter’s companion challenge – four legged friends
The challenge ends on Sunday at 8pm so you still have plenty of time to get your entries in. I’m sure you can come up with something much more exciting and imaginative than I did and I really look forward to seeing what material you have used on your creations. I’m off to do the boys packed lunch ready for school and then will be hitting the sack!! Thanks so much for stopping by.
