This Weeks Challenge Cards

With all that crafty stuff from the NEC I thought I would used as much as I could for this weeks blog challenges.

This card was made using the 6 x 6" frilly square card blank and covered with one of the papers from the Wild Blossom 12 x 12" designer paper pack, then stamped in black ink with a leaf stamp already in my stash.

Using the X-cut nesting shapes I cut out of white a matt and layered it with a contrasting pink paper from the same pack, then for the Polka Doodles Meeshelle stamp I cut her out using the Spellbinders labels die and coloured the image using ProMarkers and the fabby new fine nibs.

Extra pieces were used from dies already in my box and flowers cut out of scraps of the paper used in this design.

I have entered this card into the Polka Doodles Challenge - Shaped Card.

Now for my next card:

All the papers and the cute baby Rudolph are from the Polka Doodles Sundae of Seasons Cd-rom and they went so well with the stack of brown card I managed to get. I love the lace Spellbinders border die in this set and wanted to use it on this card, but the star is the Rudolph, he is so cute.

I've entered this card into several challenges:

Raise The Bar - No Embellishments.
One Stop Craft Challenge - 3 is the magic number.
Papertake Weekly Challenge - First Christmas.
