Ruby Rock-it Birthday

This week at Daring Cardmakers, we've been playing once again with fantastic products from Aussie company Ruby Rock-It. There are just oodles of wonderful products for all types of crafters so why not take a peek at their {website} or follow them on their {facebook page}

The dare is to make a birthday card which is ROCK themed, this could be music or lots of bling to represent precious rocks.  We would also like to see the colour RUBY somewhere too.

I used rock salt :) and watercolour to make the background and used lots of lovely Ruby Rock-it bits and bobs to make this;

There is a fabulous prize on offer this week for a lucky crafter joining in with the challenge - all the details and the amazing DT cards can be found on the Daring Cardmakers blog.

and a second card today - clean and simple and quick and easy - with a beach theme for Less is More's current challenge; Life's a Beach.

(an inside photo as the weather today is as far removed from beach weather as possible!)

The background is from an old set of digis, resized to fit a card front and simply printed directly onto the card.  Watermelon is from here and fonts are Lillybelle and MS San Serif.

Teacher Thanks cards

Two teacher thanks cards;

Both made with Docrafts printables - I printed the images and added water with a paint brush to make this cool watercolor effect.
Everything is Docrafts with the addition of printed sentiments using Chaotiq font and some watercolor paper.

For the first, I used the current sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch;

Christmas In July

Dawn dared us this week at Daring Cardmakers' and guess what?

 It's Christmas!!!!

We all need to make a head start with these cards.  I know I have a few to make to post back to the UK.  Its always difficult to start making them early especially when the weather is so sunny and lovely. Get those Christmas tunes on and start feeling festive!

Here's my Christmas card;

I used Memory Box, Sizzix and Crate Paper dies, Heidi Swapp and Doodlebug papers, Papermania glitter paper and vellum, Ruby Rock-it arrow, American Crafts washi tape and pearls from stash.

Don't forget to check out the DTs cards on the Daring Cardmakers' blog - its beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Also adding this one into the current City Crafter challenge;
