50 Years

I was asked to make a Golden Wedding Anniversary card and I thought this image and background papers from Joanna Sheen's Victorian Romance CD would be appropriate. The images were all layered onto gold mirri card which doesn't show up well in a scan and I added a heart punched border (Martha Stewart), some gold ribbon and gold pearls - also gold Glamour dust was added on the frills of the dress.

Twenty First

Apologies for not posting much this week but my excuse is that I've been preparing samples for demonstrations I'm doing soon and I am wanting to keep these under wraps for the time being. However time flies as they say and I've just realised we are almost at the end of March and my grandson has a birthday so here is the card I've made for him. The image is Paul Texting digi image by Mo Manning coloured using Copic pens. Background papers are by Papermania, the numbers were cut using X-cut dies which I think are now discontinued and I also added some card candy from Craftwork cards which happen to match the dotty paper.

The Bah Humbug challenge this week is Vintage and I've used background paper by K and Co, stamped a Santa image from a clear set of stamps by Habico with some Fiskars lace borders and stamped and decoupaged holly (also a Habico stamp). My pile of christmas cards is growing steadily by taking part in this challenge.

The flower on this card was built up from scraps of paper punched with four different sizes of daisy punch - some punched leaves were added and some tiny rose buds from Wild Orchid flowers. Background paper is from stampin Up and the wording is part of a huge stamp (En Francais) also from SU. Ribbon is Papermania. Edges of panel, rosebuds and petals sponged with Adirondack dye ink
