Fussy and Fancy Featured Guest Designer for Challenge #142-Fancy Folds


Hello once again!
 
********
 
 The Fussy and Fancy girls
are back to introduce
our very talented
Featured
Guest Designer

Kelly
 
Here is a little bit about Kelly...

Hi I'm Kelly and I started making cards several years ago now, just a few Christmas ones for family. I enjoyed doing them so much I started making birthday cards etc, I got hooked very quickly!

I love to colour, so I use stamped images on the majority of my cards, I have so many rubber stamps it's unreal! My favourite stamps are Penny Black, Lili Of The Valley and Wild Rose Studio and I also love using vintage photo images too.

The beginning of a new card starts with the image, then I choose my patterned papers, I try to colour my image to go with the papers and then the rest comes together once I've chosen which diecuts, paper punches and embellishments I'm going to use!

Fussy and Fancy Challenge 142 - Fancy Folds

Happy Friday
Fussy and Fancy followers!

********
 
Our challenge for the next
fortnight is hosted by our
very sweet and talented

Norma
 
 
Hello.
My name is Norma and when it comes to card-making I am definitely a
Fussy and Fancy kind of gal.
I simply love adding embellishments to my cards.  The hardest type of cards for me to create is actually when I have to make CAS (clean and simple) cards and have to restrain myself from embellishing...ha ha.
My cards tend to feature images (rubberstamps or digitals) that I like to colour with alcohol-ink markers and/or coloured pencils.  My favorite embellishments are flowers, pearls and swirls/flourishes.  I'm a die-and-punch addict--spent way too much money on them...lol.  Love to make my own paper flowers.  I also love doing fancy fold cards and that's why I chose this theme for the challenge.
 
 

The challenge Norma has chosen is:
 
Fancy Folds
 
Here is the gorgeous card
that Norma has created
for her challenge!

Norma
Using Marianne Design Creatables LR0111 Flowers, LR0151 Garden Branch,
LR0122 Poinsettia With Veins

 

Norma, Your card is absolutely GORGEOUS!
I can't stop staring at and admiring the hair that you coloured!
Its so very gorgeous!  Your colouring is beautiful and the
 handmade flowers you created with the Marianne Design creatables are so lovely!
What a very fancy and elegant fold you have created to share
with all of us!
Your card is stunning!
When you pop over to Norma's blog you are in for a huge
treat!  Pour yourself a nice cup of tea or coffee 
so you can enjoy admiring all her lovely creations!
