Sending My Love

Hello friends,

Another card with a vintage feel, featuring my favourite colours pink and green, as guest designer at Hope & Chances Creativity. I used the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Card Front die “Floral” to create a delicate background for the lovely rose vintage scrap from Graphic45. I just love this die, it is so versatile for vintage, shabby and whimsical cards. A rose and a butterfly are also stunning on a card for me, so I added a butterfly from the Spellbinders D’Lites “Flutter Love” die set. I made a template of the die cut by tracing the outlines of the butterfly and sponged the layers with distress inks to match the colours of the rose. The banner and sentiment is from the JustRite stamp set “Timely Banners”. I was delighted when the banner perfectly slided onto the image. I cut little slits round the rosebud so that it pops up on the banner.

A Pink Banner

Hello friends,

This shabby love card was so easy to make with the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Card Fronts die “Floral” that Christine so kindly send to me. You can see more beautiful examples on how to use this die on Christine’s blog Hope & Chances Creativity. For the background I used glimmer mist  spray in Cherry Candy color and then just layered the card front die cut – it was so quick to create! The banner is stamped on shades of pink cardstock, attached to wax cord and some petite hot pink flowers. The little pink gem heart is the finishing touch.

Challenges I would like to enter with this card are:

A Floral Frame …

Hello friends,

My second card for Christine’s blog, Hope & Chances Creativity , features the beautiful Spellbinders Shapeabilities Card Fronts die set “Floral”. I decided to add a vintage look to the card by trimming away the floral background to create a delicate frame for the vintage scrap from Graphic 45. I was so pleased with the outcome as it gives so much depth to the picture of the adorable girl in the garden. I also added some tiny butterflies from the Spellbinders Die D’Lites “Flutter Love”.
