Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 4 - Occasions


Thank you to everyone who entered a card into our challenge last week over at A Spoon Full of Sugar. It has been so lovely to visit your blogs and see all your wonderful creations. This weeks challenge is to create a card for a special occasion. I hope you get the time to come over and join in.

Remember you can use any Sugar Nellie or Rachelle Anne Miller stamp.... and wait for it...Hanglars! Yes, with the announcement from Funky kits that they will soon be selling these cute little stamps we have decided to add these to our challenge too.

Again this week all cards entered will be in with a chance to win a stamp and this weeks stamp has been provided by the very generous Joanne.

I made this card for my Mum as she has a wedding to go to soon so offered to make her a personalised card. The sentiment was printed on my computer. I made the hearts by creating 3 different sized heart templates in card on my Cricut Expression. To get the frayed edges I layed the template onto my handmade paper then used a craft knife and in quick outward movements pulled at the paper all the way round the shape. I think this gave a really good effect. Hope you like it.



Card detail:
Stamp: Hanglar's from Spring Club kit
Medium: Prismacolour, Sansodor & Paper stumps, Sakura stardust pen and Fruit punch Stikles
Paper: PM Simply Elegant and Handmade paper from Michaels,
Equipment: Cricut Expression with George cartridge.
