CCC - Vintage

 

Another post to share with you the details of our new challenge at Crafty Creations.

 

For the next two weeks we are going Vintage, so please come and join us and if you need some inspiration there is plenty to see from the Design Team here.

 

For my card I wanted to use a stamp set called “Love and Joy”, which can be used for Christmas but I have used it for a celebration card, just because I love the two simple words.

 

I stamped the sentiment in Chocolate Chip on to Naturals White cardstock, which has been die cut and embossed using the Nestabilities Captivating Squares set.  I daubed with Crumb Cake before I removed the cardstock from the die to get the highlights on the embossing.

 

Both papers used are recent purchases, the first layer of paper is from Authentique Paper I am not sure of the name and the other paper is by Marion Smith Garment District “Manhattan” range – just love it! 

 

I folded the edges of the Authentique Paper and then paper piercing (which I haven’t done for ages) a couple of sides and then added more daubered Crumb Cake ink.  The faux stitching has been created with the Crumb Cake marker.

 

The lace is from my stash, so is the retired ribbon, Pearls and the Vintage Brads.

 

Here is my card:

CAGI Things with Wings

 

Hi everyone, apologies for this very late post for my card for new challenge at Come and Get It.

 

This week our challenge is “Things with Wings” and we have two fabulous sponsors – A Day for Daisies and Lacy Sunshine.

 

I have used a Lacy Sunshine image called Lil Bug – Precious Wings.  This is such a precious image and I have coloured it with soft colours that work well with the paper.

 

Of course I added a butterfly with some lace and pearls. The sentiment is “Thinking of You” from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set.

 

The cardstock is Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake and Confetti White.  The die cut used is the Deco Labels Diecuts plus the Beautiful Wings Embosslit die and I have embossed one of the layers using a retired bossing folder called Lacey Brocade.

 

Here is my card:

The paper is from my stash and so are the ribbon flowers.  The punches used are Eyelet Border punch and Modern Label punch.  I have also added some sparkle to the wings and hat, but unfortunately it has not come out very well on the photos.
