Pretty in Pink

Just a very quick post today as I am still in the process unpacking my house and really should not be doing this post, but I can’t help myself.

I am enjoying branching out into different product ranges and came across this beautiful pearlised paper from Christina Re with stripes on one side and a damask pattern on the other side.  These make a great combination and I made a card and put it in the window of Gift Hutt as a work in progress and sold it within a day.  I didn’t have time to even take a photo of it which I usually do.

So I had some more papers and made another card using the stunning papers and some pearlised card stock I got from the local paper merchant.  I have embellished with lace and ribbons from my still considerable stash and finished off with the gorgeous lacy die from the Heartfelt Creations Raindrops on Roses die set and the lovely Ariana Blooms flowers done in vellum.

Welcome back

I am a day late for my post but better late than never.  I haven’t had much chance to do much crafting lately as my house is on the market and I haven’t been too well either.  So I will show a card that I made some time ago.  I am discovering all sorts of products on the market place and it has been enjoyable playing with some new ones that I have purchased.

Gift Hutt-1-187

For this card I have used a combination of Heartfelt Creations dies and stamps for a colourful card.  There is a lot of layering involved with the different dies and stamps.  I have cut two of the Raindrops on Roses die in White Daisy cardstock and then one oval using the inner oval with the pattern from the Elegant Ovals die also in White Daisy.  I then cut a plain oval out of the Pomegranate cardstock to place underneath the patterned oval.  I then stamped the Vining Fuchsia stamp on some White Daisy cardstock.  I coloured the flowers and leaves with copic markers.  I then partially cut the image out using the plain oval die and then fussy cut around the flowers to create a look of cascading flowers over the patterned oval.  I then stamped and die cut the Ariana blooms and coloured them in with copic markers.  These colours work perfectly with the Pomegranate cardstock.  I shaped the flowers and then finished off with the Gold Bling gems from CTMH.  I haven’t put a sentiment on as yet and may not do so.  It can then be used for a number of different occasions.
