Merry Monday Challenge #53

Hey Everyone

Lesley’s given us this fabulous sketch to create our cards for this weeks Merry Monday challenge.

I’ve dug around in my stash of retired Stampin’ Up! DSPs again and found these pretty papers.  The Basic Gray DSP is from Lap of Luxury and the Real Red DSP is from Christmas Cocoa Specialty DSP.  There’s lots of layers to this card, some Stampin’ Up! Window Framelits and a coloured poinsettia from Watercolour Winter. The sentiment I’ve used is from More Merry Messages – using the sentiment as my focal point is something I don’t often do, but I was happy with how it turned out.

Freshly Made Sketches #61

Hey Everyone

Jennifer T has created this great sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.  This card started out being something completely different than what it finished up as – but I thought I’d mix it up and create a wedding card for a change.

Don’t you love it when you can find other uses for products than what they were designed for?  The retired Stampin’ Up! designer series paper that I’ve used on this card is called Christmas Cocoa – soooooo not a wedding paper, but I think it works really well for an elegant wedding card.  I’ve heat embossed (yes, I’ve actually found my heat tool!), fussy cut out the sentiment and raised it up with dimensionals.  I punched out a heart and added a rhinestone – every bride needs a little bit of bling on her wedding day! To finish off my card I added a white satin double bow.

Here’s my card:

Thanks for stopping by.
