First Stamped Cuddly Buddly Card: Emmy

This is the first card I have made using Cuddly Buddly Stamps. I used my standing Emmy stamp for this and coloured with pencils. The background paper is from the funky fairy free download on their blog. The flowers are stamps from Dmension Fourth. I have added some craft creation peel offs and some stickles glitter glue for finishing touches. I love how this card has turned out and can't wait to have a go with some of my other stamps.

A few of my recent cards

Here are a few of the cards I have made recently.

Hope youlike them I have used a range of cd's including tripple treasures, cute companions from crafters companion, various rubber stamps and embelishments.

Crafters companion May challenge

On this challenge each month I set a list of features for a card to be designed using. This one was for bright colours, embossing (dry/heat) and gems.
For my card I decided to use a paper from the Triple Treasures cd, embossed a panel on my cuttlebug and then used embellishment which had gems attatched to them. This was then finished off with a Happy Birthday sentiment.

Crafters Companion Sketch's

Sketch 1

This is the first card from the sketch challenges on crafters comapanion. On the forum there are weekly sketches which illistrate a layout and we design a card from this. The papers used here are from the crafters companion floral cd.

Sketch 2

The second week's card. This one is made using various embelishments, sticky ribbon, peel offs and the main circle was embossed with the cuttlebug.

Sketch 3

Again the panels are embossed using the cuttle bug. I stamped an image of a dog and coloured using sakura pens and coloured pencils. The ribbon is a piece of sticky ribbon, I then added finishing touches with the cute embelishment and stamped a happy birthday sentiment.

Sketch Card 4
With this card I decided to make an a4 card and used an image from the triple treasure cd rom and matted this onto a cuttlebug embossed pannel of white card. This was finished off with a piece of sticky ribbon and some silver peel off's. This is my for my Father.

Sketch Card 5
Again for the backing paper I have used the Triple Treasures cd rom. The added 3 panels of card embossed in the cuttlebug and the finished off with some letters cut using a cuttle kids alphabet die and then some silver peels offs.

Sketch Card 6
This again is paper from the Tripple Treasures cd rom. To this I have added 3 panels of star holographic card and then some silver peel offs.

Sketch card 7
This is a simple card. I used 3 white circles. Cut some flowers using the cuttlebug and the matted these together placing a gem in the centre of the flower. I placed one of these on a length of sticky ribbon. I feel this is a simple but effective card.

Sketch Card 8
This is the last one of the challenge cards so far.
I really like this one. Again I have used the triple treasures cd for the backing paper. Place a piece of silver holographic card accross the full card and the matted a cuttlebug embossed piece of white card and added and embelishment. I have then added some gems to finish the design off.
Well hopefull each week once I have done the sketch card I will add the finished card to my blog. Thanks again for looking and hope I have given you some inspiration.

May Cuddly Buddly Challenge

Well this is my first card for my blog. May's Cuddly Buddly sketch challenge. The image is from the Triple Treasures cd and I have used my cuttlebug to create a backing pannel. I finished this off by adding sentiments matted onto silve holigraphic card.
