Lovely Romance

I Think You Are Amazing

My daughter in law called and asked me to make a card for her Aunt, 
didn't want one that say's "Get Well" or "Thinking Of You"
So I came up with this one

Turned out really nice!

I used Very Vanilla as the base with a layer of Embossed Crumb Cake in Elegant Lines.

Using a piece of Whisper White card stock run through the bigshot using the medium Doily die from the  Delicate Doilies Sizzlits, trim down and sponged the edges in Crumb Cake, 
adhered to one edge of card.

Run a strip of 5/8' Crotchet Trim along edge of card. Add embellishments.

Vintage card SU


Well after making the card for the blog hop, I was inspired to make more of the vintage cards.
This is another I came up with.
Still not sure about adding any extra details, it seems to make it look busy.

Finished card!

First choose your DSP or stamped background paper you want to use in layers.
Tear paper to a size you want, distress the edges and sponge in colour of choice.

To make the flowers you will punch 3 x small scallop out of the Itty Bitty shapes Punch Pack # 118309 for the small flowers. Large flower use 3 x 7/8 scallops from punch #129404
Sponge the edges of all scallops, secure the 3 scallops in each size with a brad.
With the small flower squish up the edges to look rough.
With the larger flower use scissors to cut in toward centre all the way around. 
When done ruffle the edges a little.

Cut out largest doily using the Delicate Doilies Sizzlets L* # 126999 by running
 through the Bigshot #113439
The pinwheel is a length of cardstock 8 inch  long x 3/4 inch wide, score every 
1/8th of an inch all away long,fold in accordion style. 
Secure with a hot glue gun onto a small punched circle and add a button or other embellishment on top.

Arrange your card they way you want it to look and add any other embellishments you wish.

I hope you all like the card!

This is my favourite stamp set!

 I absolutely love making these cards, I can't resist anything vintage or country!

Punch out 3 x 1 1/4 Scallop circles #119854, 
and 1 x scallop from the Itty Bitty Punch pack #118309, sponge edges on all scallops. Secure together with a brad, this will make 1 medium flower.

 Then punch out 3 x 7/8 Scallop circles #129404 and 1 x scallop from the Itty Bitty Punch pack #118309. Sponge edges of all scallops, secure together with a brad.

SU Flowers

While waiting for our Crazy Crafters Favourites Blog Hop to happen, 
thought I would top up my flower storage.
I find it so relaxing sitting there making them, 
except when the cat wants your attention and takes up the whole bench.

To make these flowers you will need to punch out 
3 x 1-3/4 Scallop punch #119854 
1 x 7/8 Scallop punch #129404
and 1 x piece from the punch set Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack #118309

Sponge edges of scallops then layer and using a brad to hold all together.
Now with scissors start cutting from outside into the middle (feathering).
