Time To Say …

Hello friends,

Today I am sharing a maculine card I created. Male cards are a challenge for me and I always refrain doing these type of cards. I love flowers, lace and dainty embellishments and doing something bold didn’t come easy. I  have the beautiful script paper for years in my pile of papers and it was just perfect for a vintage background.  I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink for a  weathered look and to let the inlaid clock die cut stand out better. The die cut clock is a Nellie Snellen Vintasia  Figurative die and one of my favorites. To finish off I added some paper candy in shades of brown and white. The sentiment die cut is from Poppystamps “Vintage Happy Birthday”. I really love the final result – what do you think?

Just A Note …

Hello friends,

Sharing with you today my guest designer card for the Crafty Boots Challenge blog. What a wonderful opportunity to be featured on such a Guest DT Badgelovely challenge blog – thanks so much Dionne and the Crafty Boots design team for inviting me. The theme of the current challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges is ‘Black and White’. Your project can be a card, an altered box, a handmade gift, an album, in fact anything you like just as long as it has a colour combo of black and white.

I decided to create a vintage/shabby themed card with layers of black and white designer paper and a gramophone die cut. To frame the gramophone I used a Spellbinders die “Regal Frame” – for me the old vintage and intricate pattern complimented the paper and gramophone so well. To complete the card I added a JustRite sentiment, paper roses and bows

Challenges entered:
