Love is in the Air

Hi Everybody,

back with another card for you. Thanks for leaving all those lovely comments and likes on my blog. I hope this one will inspire you in time for Valentine’s Day …

Love is in the Air


…or for an Engagement or Anniversary Card …

I like to keep my cards a bit flexible, unless I make them for a specific person and event.

How did I make it … I attached a piece of crumb cake card (from Stampin’Up!) to a white square base card and stamped my stitching in black (Graphic Squares stamp set from the Patchwork Frenzy Range by STAMPlorations). I then cut my letters (Wallflower Alphabet by Sizzix) from white card and the scalloped heart (Xcut by docrafts) before stamping in black Versacolour and clear embossing the couple (from the Ever After stamp set, Vignette Range by STAMPlorations) on my red heart. I then assembled my pieces as shown in the picture. I liked the simplicity of the look hence no gems, pearls or other embellies, the gloss finish of the embossing powder seems to be all that’s needed.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Addicted to CAS, where the code word is LOVE

Allsorts, where LOVE IS IN THE AIR

Moo-Mania, where the request is to use EMBOSSING POWDER

CASology, where the cue card says AND plus the lovely Shery from STAMPlorations is their challenge sponsor. and I am proud to be on her design team … please join in the fun!!!

Time Out, where the theme is LOVE and/or FRIENDSHIP … the girls there have a DT call, so please get entering too!!!

Wow, I’ve never entered so many challenges at once in my life!!! … there is always a fist time …

Also a quick reminder before I go, there are currently two challenges running at the STAMPlorations Challenge blog, the monthly one starts today, the theme being ‘Stamps and Stitching’ (just have a look again at my card for inspiration) and the bi-weekly Sketch #5 Challenge, which started Monday this week, so there is still time to enter. Hop over to their blog for more inspiration … and you can use any make of stamps on your entry too!

That’s it from me for today! Shame I couldn’t get a project for the 52 Christmas Cards Throwdown done, maybe next week.

Have Fun and …

Happy Crafting!!! 🙂

Happy Ever After

Hi Everybody,

thanks for all your lovely comments, they are very much appreciated. So glad you liked my recent cards.

The one for today is a Wedding Card I shall need in the near future, but it is also an inspiration for my friend Sue, who needs one sooner than I do.

Happy Ever After

I used STAMPlorations VIGNETTE Ever After Set plus Daydream Medallions and matching framelits from Stampin’Up! The couple is stamped with black versacolour ink and clear embossed on white centura pearl card, which gives it a silvery shimmer … I rather like it. The daydream medallion stamp is embossed with clear embossing powder which had some glittery bits added it’s called rainbow.

I am going to enter this card into the Addicted to CAS ‘Die Cuts’ challenge.

That’s it from me for today.

Happy Crafting!!! 🙂
