Thankful For Your Friendship

Hello once again. It’s my turn to host the new challenge starting at Cardz 4 Galz. I have chosen the theme of ‘stencils’. Here is my card:

This card is – obviously – a slimline card – but slightly longer than the usual. I started with the card base, and die cut the Pinkfresh Studio deco frame twice – it wasn’t as long as I needed it – but I knew I could cover the join with my other elements.

I dry embossed a panel to go inside the frame and adhered the frame with 3D foam – I wanted to add the elemenst with 3D foam, and to tuck them under the frame in certain places.

The birds and branches are from a stamp, die and stencil set from Pinkfresh Studio. I stenciled this several times with different colours of birds and flowers, then used the matching die, which created lots of separate pieces, and set about arranging them in my frame.

I knew I wanted to cover the join in the frame, so I started there, then looked for a sentiment and arranged everything else around that. Some of the leaves and flowers I trimmed down to fit, and added gold gems to match the sentiment.

I hope you can come and join us with your creations which include a stencil – I look forward to seeing your creations. xx

Friends Like You…

Hello. I am hosting the new challenge at Cardz 4 Galz, and I have chosen the theme of ‘die cuts and/or punches‘. Here is my card:

I recently ‘attended’ a virtual craft weekend with Pinkfresh Studio. This floral bouquet is from that weekend, and I didn’t use it on a card at that stage, but knew I could use it for when made a card for this challenge.

The image was stamped, and then the matching stencils used to colour it in, and then die cut.

The grey background panel was dry embossed with a Stampin Up folder, and then the Hero Arts wood frame attached.

The flower bouquet was added, and the sentiment – also from Pinkfresh Studio – attached as you see.

I added some gem droplets for more inteest.

I hope you can come and join us -I’m looking forward to seeing your creations – I know you are going to make it difficult for me to choose the winners. xx
