SOS193 - Simple Spring Birthday

This week's challenge at Shopping Our Stash is to make our own background - not just stamped, but more involved.
For my card I used a "new to me" technique called Nail Polish Marbling - you can find step by step instructions here. It's a bit messy and stinky, but it's easy and really fun.
I quite liked my background so I did not want to cover it up much, so I just added a simple flower, sentiment and ribbon to make it into a card :)

Challenges:
Cards in Envy - Spring (used fresh spring colors)
Use Your Stuff - make your own background
Come and Get It - make your own background

CCK Blue Sea Illusion

It's Friday and I'm back with another card featuring Ching-Chou Kuik's digis. This one is called Blue Sea Illusion and you can find her here.

I colored the image with alcohol markers and added some gold details with gold marker and Stickles.
The background paper is one of the Stampin Up's emboss resist papers, which I sprayed with yellow Glimmer Mist. I also added some gold Stickles onto the flowers.
It's all quite shiny, that's why I had to take a picture from an angle. All the cardstock is from Stampin up, as well as the gold sequin trim.

Challenges:
Fab 'n' Funky - focus on image
Simon Says Stamp - things that fly
Digi Choosday - Lace / Bling

SOS189 - Christmas Cottage in Sepia

This week's challenge at Shopping Our Stash is to be inspired by a movie.

My card was inspired by a movie called Christmas Cottage and it's based on true story of young Thomas Kinkade. So what's not to like on Christmas movie especially if Thomas Kinkade is played by Jared Padalecki :)
The stamp is called Snowy Postcard and it's from Stampendous.
I wanted it to be masculine, so I kept it pretty simple with only a bit of gold (gold shimmery CS and I used the gold pen to highlight the frame) and one snowflake.

I'm entering it into these challenges:
The Glory of Christmas - monochromatic
Holly Jolly Christmas - non traditional Christmas colors
Fan-Tastic Tuesday - anything Goes + use a die (snowflakes)

CCK - Awake in Purple Dream

Here is a brand new card I made for Ching-Chou Kuik;s Challenge blog with another beautiful digi - this one is called Awake in Purple Dream. You can find it in her Etsy store - here.


Keeping with the name of the image I used lot of purple and shimmery papers for soft and dreamy look. The image was colored with a mix of alcohol markers. 
I wanted to keep the card easily mail-able so I only added a bow and couple of pearls for decoration.
