Cardz 4 Galz – Pink and Brown

Hello there. A new challenge has started at Cardz 4 Galz, and the theme this time is to use Pink and Brown in your girlie creations. Here is my card:

As you can see – I have gone full-on girlie and also used a lot of die-cuts and embellishments:

On a white card base I added a brown card stock which has some shimmer to it – some may call it bronze…..which is a brown isn’t it?

I then layered a couple of pink patterned papers, and added a brown and pink spotted ribbon across the join – with some additional pieces for banner end thingies.

The flowers are from my stash – had them for ages – and the swirl die cuts are from using a Sue Wilson die – an oldie but one of my favourites.

The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp – fast becoming a favourite of mine – and I’m liking the bold font against a very feminine card.

I hope you can come and join us with your girlie pink and brown creations. We have a new Design Team member called Shell – known to us as Shell B – hopefully you will be able to check her creation out – and have a look at what the rest of our team have created. xx

White and Blue

Hello everyone. I have a card to share as there is a new challenge starting at Cardz 4 Galz. The theme this time is ‘White and Blue’.

I began by creating a 6×6 inches card base, and die-cutting a stitched square frame just slightly smaller.

Then embossing the white card with the Apple Blossom embossing folder, and cutting it down slightly to ensure a slim white border around it.

The heart circle die is from Heffy Doodle, and another stitched circle die to cut around that heart frame – as it only cuts into the card, and using another die from the Heffy Doodle set for the blue inner die-cut. I think this is supposed to be the waste from that die – but there is no waste here!

The little hearts that came out of the Heffy Doodle die fit quite nicely into those embossed dotty circles – so with a little patience – I went round and stuck them all in as you see.

The ‘Thanks‘ word is from Altenew ‘Enchanted Iris’, die cut twice in white card stock and then in the same blue – for some extra dimension. I decided to stick this at a jaunty angle – for no reason in particular. 🙂

The photo is taken indoors in natural light – it’s very, very blowy here at the moment – but you can see the fabulous dimension and embossing that folder creates.

I do hope you can come and join us this time. I look forward to seeing what you create. xx
