Shabby birthday chic ?!

Its time for the 1st SFTW challenge of 2014 and to ease you into the crafty new year we're making it easy for you to play along as the challenge this week is
"Happy birthday" 
Easy peasy so make a happy birthday card or project with some stamping on it and enter it into the draw x

Here is my card
So one of the crafty gifts I received for Christmas was Frantage :) and I must admit to  getting a little carried away with it on this card ! Ha ha yep I don't think there is much on this card which has not been kissed with a little bit of frantage ! It was the first play I've had with it so I'm sure you can forgive me can't you ?!

My Image is from a set of pergamano clear stamps called flower girl I have had them since 
forever ! I coloured her in with my Prisma pencils then die cut with a spellbinders oval, then added frantage (the very first splashes !) and the beaded edge. DP's are a mix of Kaisercraft Sweet nothings and HOTP all of which have been given distressed edges and frantaged ! 
Die cuts include swirls from , butterflies from crealie and leaf/branch from Joycraft (I think !) The die cut bow and flowers from stash. The chipboard frame is from prisma.

I hope you like it I had a great time playing with a new style of card :)

Baby blues :)

Well I had a lovely Christmas break I hope you all did too and to be honest I really didn't have any enthusiasm for getting back to my craft table but once I started I realised how much I missed it and I had such a ball playing with paper I now can't keep away from my craft table ! So expect many more creations soon !
Today is my 1st Jellypark project of the year and our new challenge this week is 
"Buttons & bows"
I chose to use one of my (many) favourite Jellypark images the super cute dancing rabbit which is on sale at the moment for just £1 over at the jellypark store

Here is my card
I made a baby boy card I coloured that cute image with pro-markers and added some shading with my prisma's. I fussy cut him out and added texture with my ball tool. I mounted him onto a card panel which I washed with my H2O's then embossed with a embossing folder. The DP's are ancient from stash and I'm unsure of the brand - sorry ! 

Don't forget to check out all the fantastic inspiration from the DT as well as the new releases over at the jellypark friends challenge blog.
