Wow embossing powder challenge

I absolutely love Wow embossing powders therefore decided, for the first time, to enter their last blog challenge for 2012.
This is an invitation to a New Year party and I used Marion Emberson stamps with Orange pearl embossing powder. I was delighted with the look when used on denim coloured background paper.
I used the orange pearl powder again to mix with the Wow Ultra high powder for the butterfly.
Please take a look at the New Year Party Challenge on:

Claritystamp Challenge

Each month Barbara Gray and the Claritystamp team set a challenge for members of their New Designs club.
The January Challenge was for a love card in black, red and white including a heart and bird Clarity stamp.
I have not entered the Clarity challenge before but think I will enter one of the attached cards. There is very tough competition each month so we'll wait and see!

50 Shades of Grey??

Only the colour of this tag which I have made for a blog hop in conjunction with Sam Crow ( is anything to do with the title!!!

The recipe for the tag is as follows:

I started with pearlised card which I coloured with white, black and grey Panpastels. I then used the Water droplets background stamp which I acquired from the amazing "Designs by Ryn". I made the two large flowers with tissue tape and finished them with a gem in the centre. The flower at the top I made using my Melt pot and UTEE which I then poured into a mould. The motto of Live the life you imagined was also made with melted UTEE which I stamped into before it set. Finished off with spotty and silver ribbons. Tissue tape was also used in the top right hand corner of the tag.
The rain man was stamped and cut out by hand.

I have entered this tag into the Ladybug Craft challenge -

My card debut on TV

Below are the cards I made which were shown on Create and Craft recently. The product being sold was a marbling kit ( for marbling paper). It was quite a challenge to come up with ideas to show off the paper but these are what I came up with.
