Heartfelt Wishes

Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. I am trying my best to have some balance in my crazy time of year...reports!! As I look outside my window, I see a beautiful sunny day and wish that I could be spending some time in it sipping coffee. So my aim is to reward myself with getting a quota of report comments done and then doing just that!

Today I have created a card following the current sketch from Mojo Monday and also at the Wednesday challenge over at Simon Says Stamp which is 'a hint of pink.'

I get hooked on buying loads of supplies and lately I have been digging deep and rediscovering the treasures that I haven't seen for a while and enjoying that. I have used an older paper collection from Pion Designs plus some of my favourite dies to create this card.


Paper: Pion Designs For Mother

Stamp: Hero Arts Everyday Messages

Ink: Versafine Vintage Sepia and Distress ink Vintage Photo

Dies: Elizabeth Craft Curvy Leaves, JustRite Custom Die Template, Spellbinders A2 Scalloped Borders One

Other: Green Tara Roses and Wild Orchis Crafts, Stampin' Up! Doily

Shabby Chic Cards

Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. I am sharing two cards that I have created using the White Flowers on Green Collection from Meg's Garden.

The collection has lovely ephemera. I selected this elegant lady as my focal image and used a Spellbinders die to frame it. I drew inspiration from the colours from the flowers in her hat to select flowers to embellish my card.

The lace, and trinket are also available from Megs's Garden as well.

My second card again has images from the ephemera pages. I fussy cut the white frame to frame another elegant vintage lady image.

To compliment the scrolls in the frame, I selected some Spellbinder lacey edge dies. The background papers are very subtle, so I framed them with white card stock and used foam tape to add definition between my layers.

Paper: White Flowers on Green
Ribbon, lace and trinkets all available from Meg's Garden 

Stamp: JustRite Large Elegant Sentiments

Ink: Distress Ink Frayed Burlap, Versafine

Dies: Spellbinders Oval Floral and Flourish Trim, Memory Box Elegant Scrollwork and Peaceful Butterfly Wings, Elizabeth Craft Curvy leaves, Couture Creations Edith and Baby

Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts

Other: Hug Snug seam binding, Kaisercraft pearls, Hero Arts white embossing powder
