It is nice to be able to post again as it has been couple of weeks since my last post. I have been busy as my younger daughter turned 1 on 16th February. We had a family BBQ in the weekend following her birthday and then a morning tea with a few mums and their children on Monday last week, so I haven't had much time to do any cards, until today. At the end of my post I will show you the cake I made for her birthday.
The card I made today is for the following challenges:
Lily Pad Cards - Simon Says Stamps Presents a Kissing Challenge - using the technique of kissing two stamps together
Penny Black Allsorts -February Challenge - Colour bingo. I chose the line that had the colours yellow, white and black.
I have two versions of my card.
Here is the first one:
Hero Arts Four flowers stamp CG290 & Envelope stamp S5507 using the kissing technique. To find out more about this technique, click here.
Hero Arts Little Greetings Happy Birthday C5594
Cuttlebug folder - Floral Screen
Black and white twine
Rhinestones - coloured with black copic marker
Butterfly punch (used in the second version)
Here is the second version:
After taking the first photo, I decided it wanted to add a little more to the card, so I added some butterflies. This second one is the one I am entering into the challenges.
And here is the cake I made for my daughter's first birthday. She has a small Hello Kitty soft toy she really likes so I decided to make that the theme of her cake.
Last week (after making this cake) I started a night course for 6 weeks on cake decorating. Hopefully I will learn lots of new things and some tricks of the trade to help me with future cakes!
