Honeycomb and flowers

Hi Everyone, my card today is for the Micheal Strong FB challenge which requires use of a honeycomb stencil. Well! I haven't got paints to enable me to use a stencil, so this is my version!

Hetty gave a stencil for everyone to download, so I cut it out on the Cameo from honeycomb DP, then glued the cut out pieces to sparkle vellum, (you can't see the sparkle in the photo - sorry). I then laid the "stencil" on top and under the top layer, which I 3D'd. I laid the "stencil" so it could have been stenciled? with a little white border, hope that makes sense.

Vase Michael Strong red rubber stamp
mini flowers Tattered Lace, Stamp vase and dies coloured to 
match the corner, with Spectrum Noir pens
corner floral and bee Hugware, no longer available
black frame Rose Thorn no longer available
square Noble die Sue Wilson
I hope this suits the theme.

Ballerina 2

Hi Everyone, my DT card today is another Ballerina from

Anything Goes Challenge
you can use any image.

you can get her here on the link Ballerina 2, Morgan has a few really beautiful ballerinas it's worth having a looky. 

I coloured this beautiful and elegant ballerina digitally, I used a cut file from Shirley's cards, it was so quick to get it cut with my Cameo, even the insert and topper are included. For the insert, I printed both sides of the paper  I reduced the size of the DP for the front shape and enlarged it for the insert, I also used the Cameo pens to write the sentiment, as I was printing and cutting.  I coloured the leaves of the card with  Spectrum Noir pens and used them to go around the outside of each shape. The digital paper is by Dawn by Design, from a kit I had in 2009, so don't think it will be available now, the flowers and the ballerina were also cut with the Cameo. A few gems by Dovecraft for the flowers and all done.

My Team mates have the most beautiful projects, it really is worth a visit to see them.

Pink Ballerina

Hi Everyone, this is my DT post for
the challenge is
Anything Goes

Do go have a look at the DT makes, they have fabulous projects.

My card uses the Ballerina isn't she elegant? The theme is Anything Goes, so I have thrown everything at this card, not like me at all, it must be the elegance and the flowers and I have to admit to liking it. I thought adding a sentiment would go too far, so have left it and will add it inside when I decide which Niece it will go to.

I'm seeing Stars

Hi Everyone, my project today is for


I had a few ideas, but none made the finish! Then I thought of a cut file I had and went with that, SO much easier on the Cameo, LOL. I changed it to the front only, rather than the whole card. I also used a cut file for the box, that wasn't so easy, I cut the wrong size for the box, or the sides, depending on which size you'd like! ah! well I did it in the end, with just a bit of card wasted.

Card is by Shirley's Cards HERE
(I also made it here they look so different I think.)
The star box is by Wendy Bird Designs, but I checked for a link and 
it seems it's no longer available. I have seen plenty of templates on the web though.
Both were cut from 250gr Craft Sensations Design pad.
The plain blue with a hint of gold, is 250g by Jellybean crafts.
Birthday sentiment die by Tonic
all stars were outlined or inlined (if that's a word LOL) with
Sailor rolling ball glue pen and 
Sparkling snow glitter by Sprinkle and Sparkle
star button from stash
