Dream Forever

Hello friends,

Today’s post is my first as design team member at the Sugar Creek Hollow Challenge blog. I am so honored to be asked by Cec to join her blog and the very talented team of ladies. This is going to be an incredible experience as I love  the vintage/shabby card making style. The theme for this week’s challenge is to use kraft. For my card I pulled out all stops on the embellishments, texture and distressing. The Tim Holtz mannequin die is a personal favorite and  lend itself to so many ways to decorate it. I made the flower bouquet with velvet, satin and paper flowers.

Challenges:

A close-up of the mannequin

The sentiment flags

The flowers

A peep at the inside

Project details:

  • Kraft cardstock
  • Glitz designer paper “French Kiss”
  • Tim Holtz Alterations Die “Mini sewing room set”
  • Lili of the Valley sentiments stamps
  • Hug Snug seam binding “Oloroso” and “Rose Petal”
  • Silk, velvet and paper flowers
  • Fancy stick pins
  • Chipboard frame
  • Burlap
  • Crocheted lace
  • Pearls
  • Tim Holtz Distress inks ” Vintage Photo” and “Walnut Stain”

Thank you for taking the time to visit today. I would love to see you join us at the Sugar Creek Hollow Challenge – Use Kraft  this week. Have a wonderful day and keep well.

Regards from South Africa,

Amelia
