Showers of Love

Hi Everybody,

thanks for all your lovely comments. So glad you liked the cards I made using the papers from the Quick Cards Made Easy Magazine.

Today I have a real cutie for you: Emily, Showers of Love

Emily Showers of Love

I just love how Emily is being showered with hearts, you can find her here in the Lacy Sunshine Shoppe.

I basically sized and printed her, then coloured her and used my Floral Frames to die cut her before blending the edges and layering my card as seen.

I would like to enter her into:

Lacy Sunshine Challenge #38 – Flowers

Inkspirational – Splash

Enjoy and have a lovely weekend!

Happy Crafting!!! 🙂

Sending a Hug

Hi Everybody,

Thanks for popping by and leaving me such lovely comments.

I have been invited to be the Guest Sunshine Girl over at the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog for their Challenge#34 – dies and/or punches.

I had the pleasure of choosing one of their Sweet Urchins Images. I picked Rory Love Letters …

here is what I made …

sending a hug

As you can see, I was very lucky as I was able to take my photograph outside in brilliant sunshine on Wednesday.

To show Rory off I decided to use a die-cut frame and some punched hearts on a background of pre-embossed and sanded core-dinations card stock. I sewed the larger hearts onto the card with an utterly wonky line, did some more wonky stitching around the outside, this time without twine before attaching my fuzzy fibers and my Promarker coloured image to which I had added the sentiment and a faux stitched border. You may have noticed that the border seems to have a couple of gaps … it’s a technique I tend to use to add depth and make an image stand out. Next I punched out some smaller hearts, slightly dabbed them onto one of my pearlescent pigment ink pads to give them texture and a subtle sheen and attached them as the finishing touch to my card.

Expect to see more of the super cute lacy Sunshine Images, I got a few more that I haven’t shown off yet. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by, please pop over to the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog to see the amazing projects of their Design Team. The ladies are just so talented at colouring ….

Have a lovely day and Happy Crafting 🙂

Seize the Moment

Hi Everybody,

thanks for stopping by and leaving such lovely comments.

Today’s project is one to be entered into the Anything Goes challenge #33 over at Lacy Sunshine. It is a very girlie card for you inspired by the window of sunshine we had today.

Seize the Moment

 

Well I was hoping to capture the essence of the abundance of nature at this time of year. It is also lovely to have the windows and doors open to allow the sunshine into the house ….

Have a lovely day!
