Out of this world

This card was made for my brother in laws 50th birthday, we gave him a gift voucher for 5 laps in a V8 race car.
The layout for this card  depended on the designer paper, I wanted the words out of this world as a focal point. I wanted to add some embellishments, but didn't have any in a motor car theme, so I made my own.
I started out with a piece of black card and ran it through the cuttlebug clockworks embossing folder. I chose a few focal points and cut them out. The car is from Papermania Nostalgia classic car set, I have coloured it with copic pens. Along the top I cut out a strip of designer paper, I just loved the words very suitable if you are thinking of doing an extreme thing.
Trust that little voice in your head that says
" Wouldn't it be interesting if..." and then do it

Bookmark swap

My daughter and I love reading, if fact every birthday I give her a new bookmark, so when I saw this swap on one of my online groups I just had to join. Making 20 for 20 was a huge task, if fact I ran out of copic ink colouring in the dressing gown but it will be great to have 20 new bookmarks to use.
Stamps: rubber romance, paper pretties
Paper: chocolate chip, dcwv garden party stack

The 21st embellishment was one of those bits that you use as confetti it was gold and I just coloured it black using a copic pen.

Paper: Red,white, black card, Rosie's designer paper

A touch of Elegance

For this card I wanted to create a soft effect using distress ink and sponging. I inked up the flower with two colours, once stamped I used nestabilities oval die to cut out the image. While the die was in place I sponged the edges, I did the same with the verse. They were then matted using the scalloped die and chocolate card. I used the mini rolled rose die-namics and attached pearls in the centre with hot glue. The roses were made with the same designer paper that I used for the background.
Stamps: Lucy's stamps from Kazazz

Paper: Designer paper, cream and chocolate card.
Other: distress ink- tea dye,brushed corduroy,antique linen, milled lavender, MFT mini rolled rose die-namics, pearls, marianne leaf die, nestabilities, lace, sponge, hot glue.
