Star of Wonder

My go at this weeks DMC dare!
I really enjoyed this one even though it was a bit of a toughie! :-D
I used purple ribbons and ricrac for the must use purple bit. I tore up a bit of corrugated card for the must tear something bit and for the holey bit I punched some holes in the front of my card and through the holes I've embroidered some little gold stars so when you open them up they're on the inside too. Other bits I used are a chipboard star I painted and covered with glitter and a verse of one of my favorite hymns "We Three Kings of Orient Are".
I like how it's turned out and I wouldn't have worked this combination if it wasn't for the Dare so thanks girlies!

Thanks for another mega fun dare DMC's!

E Z P Z Fluffy Flocked card

This is my go at a fluffy card for the DMC little extra this week. I used a piece of flocked wallpaper and then just added a bit of ribbon and some stamping, so E Z P Z!

BTW doing this card made me think of that fluffy paint stuff that I used to play with as a kid, the one where you dried it with a hair dryer and it puffed up, what was that stuff called because it's bugging me to bits! I've got some embossing powder that's supposed to puff up but it's pants, no where near as good as that paint stuff used to be, wonder if it's still for sale? Hmmm

Heidi Swapp ribbon, Graham & Brown wallpaper and Royal Langnickel stamps
TFL xx
Update on the puff paints things from the 80's we're thinking it was puff its or fluffits something like that puffit paints? Anyway guess it's just one of those things that's doomed to do my head in for a while! lol xx

Happy birth die cut card.... oh dear that's such a lame attempt at a title.....

Super busy this week but did manage to make a card for the DMC dare. It was supposed to be for someones birthday at the weekend but when I'd finished it it just didn't suit them (they're much more pink and girly than this card) so ended up diggin another one out with seconds to spare. But here's the original card that is now on my stand by cards pile.......

The diecuts are the letters that make up the happy birthday bit. They're Colorbok ones that I bought a million years ago. The rest is all hand cut using my own template.

Thanks for another fabby dare DMCers! I've just been peeking at the fluffy challenge so I'll have a go at that one later, can't wait! :-D
