TLT - Pam's Challenge - WOW

Happy TLT!!! Another week another challenge and another day closer to my birfday. I think I confused a few people in my post on Friday. The wording made it look like my birfday was at the weekend but it wasn't lol. But I want to thank those of you who did emailed and left comments to wish me a happy birfday anyway...I really appreciated it and will read them again on the 9th lol.
Before I carry on with today's TLT I'd like to thank everyone who entered Laurie's Winter Blues challenge...magnifilicous cards/projects!!! Along with the normal entries we had a great number with GD's beside their names!!!! I want to thank you all for was so hard to choose and very close and a few late entries kept the Ladybugs busy this morning lol. If you want to see if you are the Challenge winner, a Top 3 winner or {drum roll} December Guest Designer head over toot sweet to the Challenge Blog!!! If you don't see your name please don't be disheartened, we loved all of you but could only choose 3. With your permission though we would love to keep you on file for any future GD spots :-D Congratulations to the new GD's...I'm really looking forward to working with you :-D
Ok, on to today's challenge. Gorgeous Pam could not have picked a better challenge for me...I LOVE WOW (white on white) cards so really for me it's more of a treat than a challenge lol. I made a card for the challenge ages ago but decided I wanted to make another...see how I spoil you lol.
This is the first card...

This card was for my friend's son's wedding...I was only 2 months late lol. Nadia has 4 grownup kids and she's had 4 weddings, 2 grandchildren and one on the way in 4 years!!!

I've used The Cake from the latest Love & Marriage release and coloured it with my Copics. I also used one of my favourite embossing folders and Martha Stewart punches and of course a little bit  lot of stitching ;-D Of course I had to use my SU Tiny Tags sentiments and punch too.

I love the border

My second card is my favourite of the two...I've used the SOTM on a Nestie die that I've had for AGES but NEVER  have used {blush}. I just love how it turned out...

Ta da! If I have time I'm going to try and make these for my Christmas cards cuz I just love it :-D Apart from the SOTM (coloured with my Copics) I've used some embossed Lasting Impressions cs and stitched it to a piece of Bazzil. The flowers....I bought these flowers in Michael's about 5 years ago when I was home for a visit and have been sitting on a shelf ever since!! They come in a cute little clear pail from the bridal section and they are just so fabuliciously shimmery. The great thing about them is you can colour them with your Copics or Promarkers to match what you're creating. I added a Swarovski flat back pearl to the centre

I love this image because there's very little colouring involved

Aren't they stunnalicious! The picture has a pink tinge but they are definitely white (I've got a pail of cream too!!!)

Poor Nikki has hat head lol

I'd love to enter the following challenges:

Addicted To Stamps - Christmas
Spectacular Sunday - Anything Christmas
Totally Gorjuss - Sparkle
Simply Create Too - Christmas
There you have have one more week to purchase the SOTM (although Friday is December, SOTM is the first Tuesday of every month) for 1/2 price
Hope you have a great Tuesday...thanks for stopping by
Catch ya later x

Gorgeous cards Kerry, glad someone else got the pink tinge lol. Loving those flowers!!

DesignerDiva said...

Oh wow you really are spoiling us today - 2 equally stunnalicious cards. The flowers are devine and aren't you the lucky one getting to shop at Michaels! Love the colouring on the SOTM Kerry, gorgeous!!
I didn't use a border punch on my card, you may mean the Magnolia fence die along the back or you could mean the letter stickers 'Merry Christmas' along the bottom?
Hugs Laurie xx

Beautiful Kerry - think WOW cards are my favourite too - made one tonight but too late to photograph....

Bettina L. said...

Wow I really do love those white on whites cards, but I hardly ever make one myself. The christmas card looks beautiful. I love how you've framed the image with a border punch and put flowers in the corners. The spots of embossing gives the impression of snow. Thanks for playing at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge and good luck. Hope to see you back sunday for a new challenge. Bettina xx

Natali said...

WOW to both of your cards!
They are both stunning and I'm so jealous of your pictures. I find it so hard to take good pictures of my cards, esp. with a lot of white and sparkles.
