FTH Hogs and Kisses PigWit Card

Hello! I'm super happy to be sharing with you another piggy card I've made for the From The Heart stamp of the month Progressive Challenge. I've combined it with I{heart}Sketches with a twist of the week Challenge. This image is called Hogs and Kisses PigWit.

I've coloured him and his background using Spectrum Noir Markers and Aquarell Pencils. I've tried to keep to the sketch layout as much as I could but I've flipped it onto it's side. I cut him out in a circle shape and added hand drawn stitches. I drew and pencil coloured circles onto the background paper in blue and green colours. Then I die cut two strips using Spellbinders rounded end rectangle die cuts and embossed them. The sentiment is from Desert Diva Blog. I added gems and a bow as embellishments to finish the card off.

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges
Fab N Funky Challenge - #338 Bingo (I chose a vertical line of gems, die cut and stitching)
I hope that you like this card.

GSD Hogs and Kisses Chocolate Piggy Card

Hello! I'd like to share my card for this month's Gerda Steiner Designs Monthly Progressive Challenge. This month's image is called I love you more than Chocolate Piggy. I made a similar designed card blogged here which I gave to my seven year old Daughter for Valentines Day. This one I made and gave to my two and a half year old Son for Valentines day.

I've coloured him using Spectrum Noir Markers and watercolour pencils. I've used die cuts to create the card shape and the shapes of each layer of the card. The base layer has been embossed and the purple layer has also been embossed. The sentiment Hogs and Kisses is from a From The Heart digital stamp collection called Hamlet PigWit In The Planter. To finish of I've embellished with flower gems.

CAAB February Inspiration Card

Hello!! I'm stopping by to share my inspiration post. I've created this using a Cute As A Button image called High Stakes. This image is one of may animal images that can be found at the Cute As A Button Store. Perfect for a good luck card but I've made it into a guys birthday card to show you it's versatility.

I've coloured it Spectrum Noir Markers and Pencils. I cropped out extra chips within the image coloured and fussy cut them out to use as embellishments. I die cut some card shapes and added playing card details. With one of the playing card that I made I accordion folded it and put a loom band in the middle. I then opened it up and stuck it down to create a handmade bow. The sentiment is from a From The Heart digital stamp set called Slot Machine Birdbrain. I hope you like my card.

We'd love it if you could stop by and see the current challenges going on at the Cute As A Button Challenge Blog and a Progressive Challenge on the Cute As A Button Facebook Group.

SheepSki Designs Valentine Card

Hello. So I'm back with a card I've made using a SheepSki Designs Digital Stamp called Valentine. Her images are so beautiful and I couldn't wait to create this card.

I've coloured the image using a mixture of Spectrum Noir Markers, Touch Five Markers and I've shaded with coloured biro ball point pens. The background including the tree has been coloured using Distress Inks like watercolours. I have designed the tree myself by drawing it and scanning it into my Brother Scan and Cut Machine. I added die cut and punch shaped flowers and butterflies to finish the scene. The sentiment is from Desert Divas Blog. Then I put the frame on foam pads. I hope that you like my card.

ABM Lady Emma Card

Hello! I'm here to share with you my very last Art By Miran Progressive Facebook Challenge card. As this will be the last one. I'm sad that the challenge has come to a end but I'm grateful and thankful of all the challenges, encouragement from the creations I've made in the past and the fun that I've had. Not only fun from creating with her beautiful images but from seeing other people's creations using them too.

Anyway this gorgeous image is called Lady Emma. You can find her and all her other beautiful images here. I've coloured her using Spectrum Noir Markers and pencil. I've used a simple patterned paper for the background and added Spellbinders Majestic Squares die cuts. I've added a big handmade flower. I think the sentiment is one created by Tracy Wray from Crafty Cats 957 Designs Digital Stamps. I've put the sentiment on top of my handmade accordion folded circle.
