Fee Fi Fo Fum

The Daring Cardmakers' Little Extra fthis week had us playing "Let's Pretend" with faux ribbon, brads, stitching etc. I didn't go too mad with the make-believe as I wanted these cards to fill an order so, reined in a bit with the faux stuff!

Paper from the BG Pheobe pad
fake chipboard plaque (made with card from an old cereal box)
faux ribbon, stitching and Liquid Pearls masquerading as brads.
Flower is REAL felt, and the gingham ribbon is real too!
BG Scarlet's Letter papare pad
double depth paper scraps to make the ribbon.
Circles and wording cut with the Craft Robo
Silk and Prima flowers, real brads and real check ribbon just in case you didn't already guess...:-)
No Faux here, but thought I'd add it anyway.
Really simple card using papers from the DCWV Far East pad.
Cuttlebug Birthday embossing folder
Flowers. Prima Essentials (Lucid)
Flower centre is Glossy Accents with lots of tiny beads added

I've another one but I can't show that yet.

All great cards, but particularly like the 2nd one - the colours are wonderfully rich, and I like the way the bouquet comes out of the circles.

Love the Perfect Pearls "brads". I've used PP in the centre of Primas but never on it's own so thanks for that!!

Samm said...

All brilliant, thanks for sharing :o)

Paula said...

Lovely cards. The Scarlett Leter is definately my fav of the 3.
I think it is hard to do these challenges if you are selling the cards.
Mine is to give to someone but 3/4's of all my cards are bought by my colleagues & they won't buy "way out" stuff!!
