A little bit of sparkle

Hello lovely people,

Wow, another week has rushed by although I have only been in work for 2 days so can’t complain!  I’m here with my card for Totally Gorjuss and this week our theme is ‘Anything Goes with Sparkle’ … sounds easy, right?  Not so much for me as I don’t often add a lot of sparkly stuff to my cards, so here goes…

Teal and grey wedding angle

As usual, the stitching was done by hand and I stuck all the gems down one by one (very carefully!) then I added just a little extra sparkle to the flower centres with some Crystal Stickles.

Vintage hearts

Hello lovely people,

I have been drooling over all the beautiful Maja papers for a while and finally bought some and they are so worth the extra expense for the quality.  It was tough cutting into them as they are so lovely and I could have just sat looking at them for hours!  I eventually decided they would be perfect for an engagement card for some friends.

I cut the hearts using my Cricut and inked all the elements for a distressed look.  Here is a closer look at the pretty bits;

Card recipe;

Last wedding of the year

Hi all,

This weekend I went to the last wedding of 5 this year and created a card for the happy couple using this lovely sketch from Die-ing for a Challenge;

I have probably over-used this digi stamp from The Greeting Farm this year but it is such a cute image and I love that I can colour the hair to match the bride and groom’s hair.  By happy coincidence I managed to actually get the colours to match quite well with the wedding theme 😀  As you will see in the photo I also made a little matching wallet to hold the gift card.

Card recipe;

DP: Bo Bunny Welcome Home

Scalloped edge: Tilda lace die from Magnolia

Swirl: Marianne Design die

White flowers/pearl brad/white pearls: Wild Orchid Crafts

Crochet flower/ribbon: from stash

Sentiment: Penny Black stamp (came with graduating hedgehog stamp)

I would like to enter the card in the following challenges;

1) Die-ing for a Challenge (sketch)

2) Simon Says Stamp (bingo – ribbon, free, blooms)

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Hugs,

Where has my mojo gone?

Hello!

Wow, it has been ages since I was on here due to a serious loss of mojo 😦  I have just not been happy with anything much I have made recently and have been taking a bit of a break.  However, I was asked to make a wedding card for a colleague and was able to turn to one of my favourite and most used digi stamps from The Greeting Farm, which I have coloured with ProMarkers.

Sorry that the photo seems a little fuzzy; the light hasn’t exactly been great recently, but here is a close up;

Kissy Kissy

Hey everyone!

Well, the rubbish weather continues but I have still managed to have a lovely day with family today.  Now my gorgeous little nephews and their parents have gone home and it is suddenly a lot quieter here I thought I would share a wedding card with you.  It was a great design for using up a few scraps of DP along with some Bazzill card.  I absolutely love this digi stamp from The Greeting Farm which I have coloured with ProMarkers.

Round wedding card

Hello,

I have yet another wedding card to share today and there will be plenty more to come over the next few months!  I have 6 weddings to make cards for and plenty of commissions as well, so am pretty busy 🙂

This is the first round easel card I have made and I cut all the circles out with my Cricut then distressed the edges with sandpaper and added the stitching by hand.  I have used a little row of pearls to prop the top section against.

Here is a close up of the image, which is a digi stamp from the DigiStamp Boutique, coloured with ProMarkers.

Card recipe;

DPs: MME Lost & Found 2 (Blush/Breeze)

Seam binding/pearls/white flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts

Lace/green flower: from stash

Lettering: QuicKutz alphabet dies
