Deconstructed sketch 95

This is a new challenge for me at Deconstructed Sketches, but I did like the sketch, so thought I would give it a go.  The base card and ribbon (soft suede) are Stampin Up, and the papers and sentiments are from the CD colour my world by Jayne Bentley 'It's a Mans World collection'.
and here is the sketch:

Seize the birthday #11

A feminine card for Seize the Birthday this week, using this sketch.
Apart from the ribbon, all the supplies are Stampin' Up.  As the beads were still out from another challenge, I put some onto the butterfly for the body.  As all components are snippets, apart from the base card, I shall put this card into the Snippets Playground.  Thanks for looking x

Less is more - Beads

Week 112 at Less is More, and they wish to see beads.  Now, I have had some beads in my stash for ages, so I dug deep in my craft draw.  I have used backing papers from Uniko Studio - background builder papers, and the horizontal strip of paper is from Pink Petticoat, Isabelline papers.  The beads I sewed onto my card using metallic thread, after I had paper pierced.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up.
As the horizontal strips of card are snippets, I shall put on my warmest, hat, scarf and mittens, and hop over to the Snippets Playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Seize the Birthday #10

Masculine card for Seize the Birthday this week.  I have used Parker's Pattern Papers from Stampin' Up.  The base card is from the Regals collection, and the stamps are 'Make a Cake' and 'Beautiful Birthday'.
Hop over to see what the Design Team have created. x  Edited 19.3.13  I have noticed that my cake is leaning over, lol - that will teach me to post late at night.  Also I thought it was lacking colour compared to the DSP.  Over on the right is the edited version with an upright cake in brighter colours, and finished off a little differently.  I feel more comfortable with this card now.

Birthday wishes

I have used Parker's Pattern Papers from Stampin' Up on this card and the chevron stamp from the 'Oh Hello' set. The sketch is a past sketch  from Mojo Monday.  Thanks for looking - hope your Monday has been good. x

wonderful mum

What a beautiful Spring day today - hope you have all enjoyed it.  I have made my Mother's Day card for my wonderful mum.
I have used a Sizzix embossing folder, Baja Breeze SU cardstock, various circle dies, and the sentiment is one from Pink Petticoat.  A bit of glamour dust, a heart charm and some bling adds the finishing touches.
As the circle dies use up some of my snippets, I shall be entering this card into the Snippets playground.
