Sweet Like Chocolate!

This week Kathy has set the challenge over on Daring Cardmakers and the challenge is to create a card inspired by chocolate. Hop on over to Daring Cardmakers to see the fab DT creations and have a go yourself, http://www.daringcardmakers.blogspot.com

Here's my go at this weeks challenge:

The chocolate bar is unfortunately made of cardstock, less calories but defo not as tasty! I cut out squares using my paper trimmer then stacked them up to make the 'blocks'. I then wrapped the bar in foil and then peeled it back to create the effect of an open wrapper. The paper was then wrapped around the end to finish the embellishment. I added a little Glossy Accents at the end just to give it a bit more texture. There's Glossy Accents on the letters too so they look like they have a candy coating :). The papers are a mix of Crate Paper Fourteen and My Minds Eye Collectable from this months Quirky Kit Lite.

Fly Fly Butterfly

This week on Daring Cardmakers Zuz has set the challenge of making a card featuring butterflies.
Here's what I came up with for this week:

I started off with raiding my junk jar which is full of bits of ephemera and odd embellishments and found the buttterfly then worked the colours from the blue airmail envelope I had out on my desk. I've been packing these all last week into the new Quirky Kits. I picked more red and blue papers and embellies to match it. The stamp is a vintage one, (also from an old Quirky Kit). The papers are Echo Park and Crate Paper and the tag is a Tim Holtz one. The wood veneer 'thanks' is Studio Calico.
