I made this card for a Clarity stamps challenge called Mr & Mrs. As i'm a new crafter I only have this one Clarity stamp. But I watch Barbara on C&C and hope to eventually get more and do more. First I took Claritys Zentangled heart stamped in on green card and embossed it in white. Then I took two white hearts and put doubled sided adhesive on one side and gilded it with gold glitter flakes. Because its Mr and Mrs I didn't want it too girly so I teamed a lovely purple glitter paper with some gold card from C&C and layered it on an 8 by 8 card. I took small purple half pearls and made a border round the whole card. I took a strip of dark green & white ribbon and put a strand of gold twisted ribbon on top, then I placed it on my layers vertically. I took a piece of dark green mirror card from Creata and layered a vintage green paper with a purple border from my stash on top. I took a piece of the purple glitter paper and cut out a heart then placed it on another white heart giving me my 3 heart topper. I angled the hearts and placed them on foam pads for dimension. Then I embellished on each heart. I put small purple half pearls all round the white heart and green on the gold. Then I put purple gems on part of the Clarity zentangled heart. I put two green feathers behind the heart and two white flourishes from the bottom of the heart and put a row of larger half pearls on the bottom in two shades. Finally I die cut Mr and Mrs and place them on the card as shown.

This was a freebie image I got off the net & I used promarkers to colour it. I used a double sided sticky sheet & placed a stencil on it. I rubbed pink superfine pink glitter onto it took off the excess lifted the stencil then added purple superfine glitter. I stuck this onto green & blue card as I wanted a multi coloured effect on the image. I placed some purple hessian (I think) onto a smaller piece of the same card then put my image on top. I added some ribbon, gems, flowers a toadstool, ladybird & butterflies & gave it to my friend as a gift. She said she'd rather frame it & keep it & her reaction made me proud of my work.
My sister (who's a Christian) asked me to make her some encouraging cards. I took an 8x8 card then cut a piece from the top so u can see the bottom. I covered it in blue card that I used a lattice edge punch from ek success on then stuck pink pearls from top to bottom. I covered the top with pink paper and stuck blue pearls down the left side. I took a piece of blue card with a gold design from Hunkydory& layered it onto plain pink card. On top of this I placed to pink feathers. I then placed some spellbinder diecuts at the top of the card put pink pearls top and bottom. Then I took my image & layered it onto the same pink paper & placed on top. I placed blue pearl on the corners. I die cut a blue butterfly & placed pink pearls down the middle. I found a sentiment in blue from Best of British & layered it onto the same pink card with a white diecut to edge it and finished off with two blue pearls.
I took a piece of black card on which I stamped a wall background in versamark & then embossed in gold. I placed it on some silver card. I took an image from Dawn Bibby & layered it onto black card & a russet coloured card that matched the flower, stuck on using foam pads. Just behind the picture is a small vertical piece of gold card. At the bottom I cut a banner piece of silver card with russet on top then a piece of black & rust lace on top of that. I used a kanban best wishes sentiment & layered it on the russet card. Then I die cut some small green leaves and placed them between gold metallic leaves with a metal rimmed flower then a green half pearl on top. I repeated this on top of the lace to finish it off.

This is my first card with my fabulous shoes cd. I've never cd crafted b4 & I quite like it. Even though I really like the shiny stuff, glitter, embossing, ink, stencilling & glitter paste etc I enjoy this cd immensely. I used an 8x8 card printed one of the backing papers & die cut one of the toppers. I used red mirror board for my mat with the paper on top. Then a 6.5x6.5 sq mirror board with a dark blue best of British paper which made the red mirror board mat for the topper pop. I used dark blue ribbon on the 1st layer, then red on the 2nd layer. I put a black & rhinestone ribbon slider on with a red flower behind it. Then I put got a white heart & placed red gems round it with a blue butterfly on top. I sprayed both of these with spray & sparkle & put gems on the butterfly antennae. I used a sentiment from Best of British & die cut a red mirror board back. Finally I cut 2 red corners & placed some red & blue pearls on them.
