Embellies with a Twist - Birthday Celebration

We had fun in the weekend with The Crafter's Cafe's 3rd birthday and the live chat.  I was able to take part for a while before I headed out to take my kids to a birthday party.  It may have been on during the evening in some parts of America, but it was Sunday afternoon here in New Zealand.  

We also have some new challenges as part of the birthday celebration.  Have a look at some great examples and take part yourself.  I am not sure when they need to be done by, so I will get back to you on that one.

Now back to this week's Embellies with a Twist challenge - Birthday Celebration

Here is my card which features the TSB colours and also fits the embellies with a twist theme as it three gems embellishments.

Image:  Digi image Tulips from The Stamping Boutique
Ink: Black versafine
Cardstock: white and rose pink, (I used the green copic marker to colour the white card to match the leaves)
Other: Spellbinder circle dies, copics, gems, Sizzix plaid embossing folder

Happy 3rd Birthday The Crafter's Cafe!

I hope you can visit us at The Crafter's Cafe and take part in some way.  

Have a great week!

Embellies with a Twist - Extended

The Monday Embellies with a Twist - Anything Goes challenge at The Crafter's Cafe has been extended for another week until 12th August, so if you haven't had a chance to take part yet, please come and join us.  Please also have a look at the wonderful creations that have been made so far. 

Here is another card I made the other day:

I used the 1" punch to cut out the circles from different patterned paper and adhered it to the embossed dotted background matted with the lucky limeade card stock and mounted onto the wisteria wonder card stock.  I only had white ribbon so I coloured it with my ink pad to match. 

Card stock: Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limeade, Whisper White
Ink: Wisteria Wonder
DSP: In colours 2011-2013 Patterns DSP stack
Accessories: 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon (inked with Wisteria Wonder ink), 1" circle punch, Polka dots embossing folder 

Thanks for stopping by and for your comments.

Enjoy the rest of your week
