April in my family is a very popular Birthday month so you should expect to see quite a few B-Day cards over the next while. This is a card for my DD who is having a birthday very soon. She love's pink, glitter, and bling so I made sure to include lots. The paper is CTMH inks are from SU I used Basic Black and Chocolate Chip. The image is Penny Black. One day I'm going to have to start making cards that aren't PB, but for right now I'm having way to much fun with them LOL! Thanks for stopping by-Tania

Think Spring! PBS#42

I made this card for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge #42 Think Spring!
I new the new Penny Black clear stamps were perfect for this challenge. To make things faster I chose to follow a this older sketch from Ismaki .

-Pretty in Pink
-Certainly Celery
-Old Olive
-Creamy Caramel
-Really Rust
-Bordering Blue

Sending Something Sweet Your Way

A card I made from the Penny Black Clear set Every Which Way. The hedgies in the set actually hold little hearts but I don't have many occasions to use them so I took the cup cake that is included in the set and stamped and mounted the images over the hearts. I used liquid applique for the frosting with the tiniest bit of glitter thrown on too. The PP is basic Grey but as it was a scrap I don't know which line all card stock is Bazzil.
Now I have the hugest craving for cupcakes LOL, good thing there are a couple B-Days coming soon. Thanks for stopping by!

Friday Sketchers meets Penny Black Saturday#41

I made this card using the Friday Sketchers#44 sketch and the Penny Black Saturday #41 challenge which was doodling. I loved the sketch immediately and new I had to use it, but the Penny Black challenge was a real struggle so I decided to combine them. The only doodling I could come up with was the squiggly lines around the edges. I thought the happy Birthday looked a little plain so I added brown glitter to it. I'm really quite happy with how both challenges worked out together.Thanks for stopping by-Tania

Used the Colour Create Challenge from last Sunday which was the colour combo of red and green and the bonus theme of things with wings. I really chose to do this as a way of stepping out of my colour comfort zone as I really don't like to work work with red and green in combination, even my Christmas themed cards are usually not red and green. I wish the glitter showed better in the picture as it really adds some more dimension to the card.

Card Recipe:

MOJO78 card

Found another challenge, its sketch #78 at MOJO Monday, the other day and thought that I would give it a try. The paper is the same one from BoBunny that I used the other day. The image is a Penny Black that I've had for a while but had'nt used before. I stamped the image and water coloured it and then stamped the image again and used the flowers and the lady bug as pop ups on the first image. I then used paper glaze to at seed beads to the centers of the flowers and just a tiny bit of glitter to make them shine. Sorry it doesn't really show that well in the picture. Thanks for looking, have a great day! -Tania

Bo Bunny Paper card/ Penny Black Sketch

Created this card with some new Bo Bunny paper and the Penny Black Saturday Challenge sketch from this morning. I also had to try the flower that Claudia posted a tutorial for on her Blog. I switched out one of the flowers in the sketch for the sentiment which is stamped on a Stampin Up punched out shape.Sorry for the blurry spots, its cloudy and I couldn't get a good pic so I used the scanner and it doesn't like lumpy embellishments.

Thanks for looking, have a great weekend- Tania

Springy B-Day Card

I made this card for a very special friend of mine for her Birthday today. The flowered background paper is the new porcelain line from basic grey. I love how just looking at it makes spring seem just a little bit closer. Maybe this snow will go away.

Only 4 more sleeps till the crazy cropper retreat yeh! I guess I should start packing!

Thanks for looking- Tania
