Summer Dreams

The Challenge for The Shabby Tea Room this  week is Summer Dreams inspired by this photograph.

I wanted to make a different shaped card so this is what I came up with, a twisted hexagon easel card.

Sorry this is such a quick post but I have a busy few days ahead.

Time for Tea

A card made with the Don and Daisy stamp 'Coffee time' or tea time here in England.
I framed it with the MD Passe Partout die.

I layered the stripe backing paper onto orange card followed by the pink floral paper.
For the embellishments I added an orange ribbon, a pink fabric flower, tulips cut from MD die LR0209, tea set from LR0315 with some pastries made from polymer clay which I have from when I used to make miniature food for dolls houses. I finished with 3 small black pearls.
I am entering this in the following challenges:-

A selection of my miniature food.

Clean and Simple

I made this card for the Papertake Weekly Challenge Spots and Dots.
I kept it very simple with an embossed panel with the flower stem cut out in black and green

The next card was me with too much time on my hands, so I was playing around with different techniques and materials. 

I used a mask and homemade texture paste for the wire mesh and homemade crackle paste for the heart with the sentiment (need to practice this). I stamped embossed and cut out the dragonfly, made the daisies and used some flower soft to give some texture to the centres.

Close up of some or the elements.

I enjoyed making this though it took a lot longer than the first card.

Hearts and Flowers

I was inspired to make this card by the Cute Card Thursday Challenge as I do like to use lace in my cards when appropriate.

I distressed the edges of the pink backing paper and  layered onto dark red card. Then I cut a strip of patterned paper, distressed and stuck down one side. Then I added the lace top and bottom.
I cut a scalloped heart out of patterned paper and a fancy Die Sire heart out of pink Centura card. Also a corner out of the pink card with MD LR0143.
The large rose and pink buds were bought. The smaller flowers and leaves were made with a punch and the cream leaves with MD dies LR 0156 and LR0157.
I used an Anja Label MD LR0241 and embossed the sentiment in silver. I cut a butterfly out of cream card and pink vellum and finished the card with assorted hearts including a metal heart below the flower.
