Things With Wings!

We are now onto Challenge #6 at Hooked On Craft Challenges and the theme is 'things with wings'. I thought I would have a go at making a gate-styIe card which opens up from the center. I have used gorgoeus butterfly stamps from Hooked On Craft on both the inside and the outside on my card and they are all coloured with copics. My flowers are also from Hooked On Craft and I have added glimmer mist to colour them and to make them sparkly!
Please join us at Hooked On Craft Challenges, we can't wait to see what you guys come up with for our 'things with wings' challenge!

Sweet Treats!

Thank you so much to everyone who entered our last challenge at Hooked On Craft Challenges and congrats to the winner and the top 3!! Awesome work guys!
Well now we are onto challenge #5 and the theme is "sweet treats"! Now I love sweet treats (I have a sweet tooth....) so I had so much fun making this card. When i saw the cute honey bear stamps at Hooked On Craft I thought they needed a lovely bee hive home! I have made an easel card featuring a bee hive that I made using my Cricut and 'walk in my garden' Cricut cartridge. My bees are also made on my Cricut using 'create a critter' Cricut cartridge. My honey bear stamps (how cute are they?!?!) and flowers are from Hooked On Craft. My flowers were white but I used 'yellow daisy' and 'black magic' glimmer mist to colour them. To get the two-toned yellow and black flowers I first sprayed them with 'yellow daisy' glimmer mist then I dipped the edges of the petals in 'black magic'.
I can't wait to see what 'sweet treats' papercrafts you come up with so join us at Hooked On Craft Challenges!
