I decided to make up a card type for this birthday card!
I used pearlescent cards to make my gatefold and stepper cards and stuck them together! I used a MS punch on the edges of the cards. I used craft studio to make the papers- the mice are from Nitwits Thimbles and Threads. The flowers are from WOC.
I used pearlescent inks to colour the lace ribbons for the stepper cards. The beautiful digi is from the Paper Shelter.
I also inked the doily for the inside using pearlescent inks sprayed on it.
A friend is about to have an operation so this is for her.
I used a LOTV die cut and distressed the background and added perfect pearls (doing the same to the edges of my card and layers). The background paper is Nitwits (as is the card inside) teamed with a flourish paper I made.
Used a lovely pink ribbon which I added glimmer mist and pearlescent paint to. I absolutely love the embellishment- very vintage. I used textured card underneath and a MS flower punch to make the border.
This is the paper and frame I used inside from Nitwits Beraly Mine
I made this box to hold a couple of Thorntons Chocolate bars as a birthday pressie (testing out the idea for Christmas!!). Sorry I don’t have time to write much tonight!!
Gorgeous LOTV stamp was coloured with Promarkers. Image then covered with embossing ink and pink Perfect Pearls applied. I added some flowers from WOC. The textured card stock sleeve was sprayed with glitter spray.
I would like to enter the following challenges Whimsy inspires- flowers Clearly iStamp- flowers
I wanted to use my new LOTV stamp and thought it would be perfect for beautiful inspiration picture for the CR84fun colour challenge and for the Stamptacular Sunday sketch (see end of post).
So this is my card
I designed the papers on the computer using the colours from the inspiration photo but also using the themes from the photo (flowers, swirls and stripes). The papers don’t show up too well here but the backing paper is light with a light pink flourish pattern, the horizontal is pink flowers on white and the vertical is black, white and pink stripe.
The edges of the card were coloured with pink alcohol ink and perfect pearrlised!
I chose my LOTV stamp as she is holding flowers and also used a LOTV sentiment. I decided to only use shades of pink to colour her and I created the background and sentiment background using distress ink and perfect pearls.
I’ve finally tried adding flower embellishments to a card!
I have an age to add to the circle once I know the recipient of the card! I used distress inks and perfect pearls to do the background for the LOTV stamp. Image was coloured with Promarkers.The flowers are all WOC. I added a couple of gems to the flowers in her hair.
I used this wonderful inspiration picture for this card.
This gave me tons of ideas and I came up with this card.
I used the colour picker on Craft Artist to match my paper colours to the inspiration picture and used ideas from it for the papers.
The central paper is stripes to match the tablecolth and I made it and added the frames and sentiment in Craft Artist. I used a LOTV die cut and recoloured it with Promarkers to match the inspiration photo colours. I used tattered rose distress ink inside the frames and around the die cut. I coloured clear gems with Promarker for the cake cherries.
The ribbon paper with cupcakes was made on the computer. The next layer down was made to look like petal wallpaper like the wall in the picture. The background paper was also made on computer and features cupcakes. I coloured some more gems for the backing paper to add some zing!
I used Antique Rose distress ink blended oto the edges of the card and on the black and white flower backing paper. I then dabbed it around my image. I used two layers of lilac ribbon which are both fairly translucent.
I coloured my Silver Fairy digi with Promarkers and added some Lilac stickles. I’m leaving it without a sentiment for now so I can add one when I know who the card is going to be for!
This card is for an inspirational lady who has been battling cancer.
I colour matched and printed my papers. I used a LOTV die cut on some dark blue shiny card from stash and I used a MS butterfly punch for rhe top.
I printed matched paper for the back of the card. I used Craft Artist to make the paper with a lace and flower frame and added a white frame in the centre to write my message on.
This is the card base. I typed and printed my sentiment “Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves”. I layered fabric flowers, placed flower pins through the middle and bent them round before attching them to the card.
