Shabby Chic

The theme for In the Pink challenge is Shabby Chic/Vintage. Not my usual style but I had some Raspberry Road paper that came with a magazine. I distressed the edges slightly added some lace distressed with tea die distress ink and layered onto Kraft card.

I cut a doily out of patterned paper and distressed with vintage photo, printed the image and distressed with antique linen before adding.  
I cut a fancy corner out of Kraft card plus a small heart for the sentiment.
The leaves were punched out of mulberry paper and added with the pink roses.
I was fortunate to find in my sewing box the lace dragonfly, just what was needed with 3 small pearls added, plus a silver resin heart to finish in the bottom corner.

For my 2nd post today I also decided to use the doily die on another card. This time the colour scheme was purple/pink.

I used Anja corner die and lace border die on pink patterned paper and layered on to the purple inks. then added pink lace and ribbon.
I cut the doily and flower out of cream card and tinted with distress inks.
I cut leaves out of purple card and butterflies in pink.
MD dies used LR0130, LR0200, LR0201, LR0156, LR0192


I've just received the new Don and Daisy stamp 'Diva Daisy' from
Maddylisa Crafts so I wanted to do a really bright and cheerful card.

I layered the patterned paper on to some orange card and added some orange and silver ribbon before mounting on the card base.
I used MD  die LR0130 to cut a doily out of the orange card and tinted with fired brick distress ink.
I stamped Daisy on to white card and part cut out with a scalloped circle die trimming the rest with scissors. I then coloured with spectrum noir pens adding some silver glitter glue.
I cut out a  corner using LR0143 from the orange card and a Memory Box butterfly adding glitter to the edge of the wings.
I embossed the sentiment with silver and added 3 red gems to the top right corner.

I used pink Centura Pearl for this card. I die cut one corner with Marianne large rose corner and rounded the other three corners. I cut a strip of patterned paper with Anja border die, added pink lace and ribbon and placed down the left side. I stuck some silver and pink patterned paper onto a 6 x 6 card base and added the pink card over the top.

The sentiment was printed off a computer, cut out and backed with silver card.
For the embellishments I cut a butterfly out of pink card and pink vellum and finished with silver liquid pearls. The leaves and feather were cut out of silver paper. The flower was lace gathered and stuck onto pink card and ribbon petals added over the top finished with a pink gem.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:-

In the Pink 'Simply Sentimental'
Cute Card Thursday 'Handmade Embellishments'
Marianne Design Divas 'For That Special Day'

I made this card for the In The Pink challenge Fluttering By

I used the Don and Daisy 'Love is' stamp coloured with spectrum noir pens and layered the image onto pink card cut with Spellbinders Fleur de Lys die.
I cut 2 corners  of the rose backing paper with Marianne small rose corner die and the bottom with Anja lace border die. I embossed the large flower in gold and colored with alcohol pens, cut 2 leaves with Marianne LR 0156 die set. To finish I added some pink lace and a butterfly cut with Robert Adams butterfly die.

I created this card for Cute Card Thursday challenge using a stamp from the Daisy and Dandelion range and some of my offcuts of papers. The sentiment is stamped on a cut down spellbinders tag and the flowers are punched to match the flowers in the paper.

Dancing Daisy

I got the idea for this card when I saw a friend's laced up skirt. I punched the edges of 2 pieces of card and laced them together over a piece of patterned paper.
Finished the card with some punched flowers and die cut leaves. I used Spectrum Noir pens to color Daisy added lace edging and die cut sentiment.
