Love and Hearts

Hello friends,

Today I am sharing a shabby card, inspired by the new challenge at Double D Challenges. The theme is “Anything with a Heart” and the lovely mood board will surely help you to get started. The team created beautiful cards to inspire you – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile. For more information about the challenge and the lovely prize visit the Double D Challenge blog. Looking forward to see your cards!

My card was inspired by the pink hearts in the photo. I used a rose-themed designer paper as background for the different size heart shapes. I also added some pink and sliver glitter hearts, rose bouquets and bows.  To frame the hearts I used strips of self-adhesive lace. I finished off with a die cut sentiment. Hope you like my take on the challenge!

Valentine Love

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at Double D Challenges. Team Diane is hosting this challenge with the theme “Valentine Love”. The team have created a bunch of beautiful cards to inspire you – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile. We have also a fun prize to give away to one lucky player which will be chosen by Random.org.

My inspiration from the picture was the red and black colours and I tried to incorporated these into my card. I used a light green plaid paper as background, then layered the six die cut hearts in a block pattern on the base card. I die cut the hearts from black glitter paper, cream and red cardstock and then swop the centres so that each heart have a contrasting frame. I layered the centres of the hearts with mirror tape for dimension. I also cut additional  leaves to add on the hearts for more colour and interest. I finished off with red roses, gem stone hearts, a die cut lace border and a sentiment.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

Doodle Rose Wreaths

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at Double D Challenges. Team Diane is hosting this challenge with the theme “Wreaths”. The team have created a bunch of beautiful cards to inspire you – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile. We have also a fun prize to give away to one lucky player which will be chosen by Random.org.

My inspiration from the picture was the lovely pink and green colours and I tried to incorporated these colours into my card. A few weeks ago I received a lovely wreath die from my team leaders, Diane and Darlene, and it was just perfect for this challenge. I used gingham paper as background, then layered my leaf border with mirror tape at the top of the card. I cut two wreaths and used my watercolour pencils to paint the doodle roses and leaves on the wreaths. I layered the two wreaths also with mirror tape for dimension. I also cut additional doodle roses and leaves to add on the leaf border for interest. I finished off with bows, small gem stones and a sentiment.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

Sunflowers

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at the Double D Challenge blog. Team Darlene is hosting this challenge with the theme “Sunflowers”. This is such an easy challenge and most of us DD_Sunflowers_August19love flowers so I hope to see your card linked up at the Double D challenge blog. The team have created beautiful cards to inspire you – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile.

I was surprised to see that I have only one sunflower stamp in my stash. Although it is a very old stamp I decided to create a watercolour card with it. I stamped the image on watercolour paper with distress ink and did the colouring with my Derwent Inktense watercolour pencils. I used a gingham paper as background and then lifted the top layer from the base card with mirror tape for dimension. I finished off with a die cut fence, a sentiment, gemstones and a wax cord bow.

I also entered my card in the following challenges:

Vintage Scraps

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at Double D Challenges. Team Diane is hosting this challenge with the theme “Scraps” (Use your scraps).  The team have created beautiful cards to inspire you DD_Scraps– a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile. The prize to win for this challenge is a “My Favourite Things – Notched Border die” and absolutely gorgeous!

I used left-over paper from a Mintay paper pad “Love Letters” to create a vintage card. I used the sheet with the small images and die cut each of them with a small scalloped rectangle die. I added the pieces with mirror tape, for dimension, to the base card to form a square of pictures. Each image is then embellished with a rose and leaves cut from scraps of green paper. I finished off with a sentiment, pearl strings, a bow, a bit of glitter and a little pearl heart. I love the outcome of this card!

I entered my card in the following challenges:
