Hearts, Hearts, Hearts ….

Hello friends,

Today I am sharing a shabby card, inspired by the new challenge at Double D Challenges. The theme is “Weddings” and with such a lovely mood board from Team Darlene I decided to play along. For more information about the challenge and the lovely prize visit the Double D Challenge blog. Looking forward to see your wedding cards!

My card was inspired by the lovely pink and white colors in the photo and as always the beautiful roses. I used a soft pink and grey designer paper as background for the die cut oval which I embellished with roses and sweet blossoms. I added different shapes and sizes heart charms and finished off with a die cut sentiment. Glitter on the roses was the final touch to give lots of sparkle to this shabby wedding card. Hope you like my take on the challenge!

Timeless Elegance

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at Double D Challenges. Team Diane is hosting this challenge with the lovely theme of “Lavender and ca-dd-ll-tileLace”. The theme of beautiful lavender  colors and romantic lace speaks of timeless elegance for me. The team have created beautiful cards to inspire you – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile. The prize to win for this challenge is a “Precious Marieke Flower Border die”  and absolutely gorgeous!

I was inspired by the colors and beautiful lace in the photo. I use a Tattered Lace die “Counting the moments” as focal point on my card. I  layered several papers and fancy lace to create a shabby background for the clock. The fun part for me is always to arrange the flowers and bows and I really like the outcome on this card. I finished off with a sentiment die cut from Impression Obsession, a little bit of glitter and sparkling sequins.

It does not have to be a wedding card…just use the colors! For more information about the challenge ca dd cb1-tileand the prize up for grabs visit the Double D Challenge blog and start creating – we would love to see your card this fortnight.

I always love to make cards in the shabby style and the inspiration tile just fits this style perfectly. I used several layers of distressed paper for the base of the card. As background for the flower bouquet I used an Impression Obsession stamp “Wooden plank”. For a bit of extra shabbiness I add a  Marianne Design  Creatables die cut doily and vintage lace. To finish off I added pretty flowers in different shades of blue and coral, white sprigs, a flower border, gemstone hearts and a bow. The sentiment is a Penny Black creative die ” For you”.

Pink Hearts

Hello everyone,

Valentine’s day is just around the corner and with that in mind we have a new challenge at Double D Challenges . To celebrate this day of love our theme is “Pretty Pink Hearts” and we want to see lots of pink and hearts on your creations. The inspiration board is at the bottom of my post.

As the challenge requires pink, I always love to make it in the shabby style. I used Spellbinders die cut hearts and little gemstone hearts layered on a shabby background paper. For a bit of extra shabbiness I stamped some flourishes on the background with TH distress ink. To finish off I added pretty flowers in different shades of pink, white wax cord bows and lace for embellishments. The sentiment is cut with a Spellbinders die D’Lites “Sentiments Three”.

Hope you can visit the Double D Challenge blog to read about the challenge and prize and to see the lovely creations of the design team ladies.
