Thanks to You

Hello everyone, today I have a quick and easy thank you card to show you. My sister asked me to make this for her ages ago and I am just getting around to blogging it now!!

For my card I have distressed a piece of ivory cardstock with vintage photo distress ink then I made a collage using various prima stamps from the printery and londonderry sets and I stamped them in memento rich cocoa ink. To finish I stitched around the edge and added a sentiment from my WMS fancy phrases set and a row of pearls.

Card/Paper: Ivory and kraft card.
Stamps: WMS - Fancy Phrases set.
Ink: Distress inks - vintage photo. Memento - rich cocoa
Embellishments: Pearls
Tools: Sewing machine

Cupcake Challenge 215

Hello everyone, today on Cupcake Challenge 215 we have a theme of paper piecing.

For my card today I have used a Forever Friends image and I have coloured it with copics and paper pieced the blanket.....I think the blanket really lends itself to paper piecing! The DP is from DCWV and I have used a DooHickey die for the decorative edge. The flowers are from Wild Orchid and I pulled the centres out and replaced them with a jewelled brad. The leaves were cut using a Joy Crafts Die designed by Noor Design and I finished off with some ribbon and jewels.

The inside of the card was decorated the same as the front and I found the poem on the internet.

Hello everyone, today I have a card to show you that uses an image from the Magnolia Easter Collection 2009.

For my card I used Tulips from the Magnolia Easter Collection 2009 and it is coloured with copics. I really love this image and this card shows Magnolia images can be used for CAS as well as non-cute cards.

I used my MS scoreboard to create the embossed background and I finished off with a simple deep red bow.
