Shaped card fun and Get Funky's may challenge!!

Oooooh I do love shaped card, they are soooo much fun to do, which is super as the challenge this month that Enfys has set over on the Get Funky challenge blog is shaped cards.
Here is my little angel sitting on a star shaped card!!! The angel is one of the new releases from Lily-Boo's boutique that I coloured up yesterday, I embossed her moon a bit to make it look a bit more 'moony'!!!.

I made the cardbase and topper in design studio, (it's two of the stars from george and basic shapes with another for the topper) and cut them on some gorgeous blue patterned paper rom the blue magic section on my funky hand 'Dreams come true' CD.
Behind the topper is a piece of sticky silver glitter vinyl and I popped a little gem in the midle of each star.
For the little stars and the sentiment over the top of the card I used a little crescent shape of acetate and the little stars that came out of the hols in my topper, I cut a slightly bigger one for my 'for you' sentiment.

I wanted to keep the inside quite simple after the bling of the outside so just popped 'happy birthday' in there.
This second card is my super cute little pirate guy I also coloured yesterday (and Mo has taken a shine to this card!! don't think it will make it into an envelope for anyone!!) he isn't for the Get Funky challenge but I couldn't leave him out!!!!Again I used my design studio ( figured I'd better give it some use now Fi has set up a cricut club for us here in Lincoln, I don't want to look to rusty at class!!! romfl!!!)

I welded together 2 of the palm tree's on the island on the pirate boy key of paper dolls dress up. For some texture on the leaves and sand I gave the a squizz through my cuttlebug and inked them up, the trunk I used some of my wood effect cardstock from my jolly to the kanban factory!! ( I tell you that £20 box is endless and the cardstock cuts like butter with a cricut).

So thats the fruits of my labour for today!!!!! I am going to have a lovey hot cup of tea and a couple of oreo biccies now and then I might go out to play in my crafty garage again.

Here is our 'Mo-ism' of the day - "mummy and daddy , i know that you have to fall of your bike to learn how to ride but my leggie's are all bruisey and I am not doing anymore bruisey-ing today so I am going to leave it for a couple of days!!"
He just makes me laugh so much you can't help but hug him!!!!!!
Thank you for popping in on me, hugs Lou xxxxxx

  7. ohhhh these are soooo cute and clever. Great choice of Funky Hand paper for the star one - I thought you'd used wire for the little stars, but acetate is such a great idea.

  8. Thanks for joining in again this month with the Get Funky Challenge. Your acetate stars are fab..I might have to 'borrow' that idea for a demo in the future!
