Get Funky! Challenge - Anice's Sketch Challenge

Here is my slightly last minute entry for the latest challenge over at the Get Funky! blog.
Another hectic few weeks here, [hopefully with some news to follow very soon ;) ] so having a sketch challenge was perfect. I find my cards come together so much quicker with sketches to follow.

I'll say this quietly but I've actually made an Xmas card this month *shields herself from the evil looks*.
I know, I know xmas in July is mad but I had some yummy new papers and stamps to play with! :)

The stamps were the new freebie from Papercraft Essentials Magazine which was a fab set of Our Betty images! Yay, more for my collection, thanks lots for the exclusive design!

As soon as I saw it I thought Betty's dress would work fab in 2 tone and decided on traditional xmas red and green to match with.....
My new papers from the Forever Friends Retro collection by DoCrafts. Also by DC are the card blank and new 'Noel' range ribbon and bow. The mini present die is by Quickutz.
Instead of adding another layer of backing paper I used a black fineliner pen to do some faux stitching, which considering I dont use it much has turned out quite well IMHO!

Thanks for stopping by, hope this card is ok for the challenge. Ni  :) x

'Ultimate' Happy Birthday Cards.

Been busily playing with the new Happy Birthday Ultimate Pack and few other bits from the new DoCrafts releases and have made the following:

Firstly using the new typography happy birthday stamp which I coloured, and some of the cardstock stickers also in the collection. I wanted to personalise it and so this will be perfect for my cousins little boy later this month!

This is an easel card that I've kept monochromatic using the capsule collection sizzling red hot smooth card with the 5 and 0 stamps, another cardstock present sticker and some gems.

Lastly using an idea in the new creativity magazine I made a basic pop up card. Decorated the front using die cut shapes, greeting and paper from the ultimate pack. Also covered the pop up with tag and present die cuts and added a blank shape for writing a message on.  


Just a few simple cards but I really like the colours and paper patterns in this new collection and am pleased with these cards. TFL, Ni :) x
