Love Jacky xx
I'd like to enter these into the following challenges:
Charisma cardz: Use Die cuts
Paperplay Challenges: Pink to make the boys wink!
PaperCutz challenge: Anything goes!
I was having a bit of a browse through my stash and I came across this die cut sheet sheet of cutie bears from Lili of the Valley which I bought at the Make it show earlier in the year. I have just ordered the stamp from the website along with some other goodies from their new releases, so while I am waiting for them to arrive I thought I should use up some of the die cuts.
I made the card first using the sketch on LOTV. I cut out the die cut with Nestabilities labels 12 set, inked the edges and added some glitter to the butterflies wings. The papers are 'Henbury Lane' by Papermania.
I'd like to enter the tag into the challenge at Die Cut Dreams: Use a tag but no stamping at all!
While I was looking through my stash I also found a paper mache box, so that also got decorated. It was so much fun, I haven't decorated a box in ages and I'd forgotten how much I enjoy doing them. Again the papers are from 'Henbury Lane' and the ribbons and pearls are from Hobbycraft. The inside is painted with white acrylic paint and then glossed over with Sparkle Mod Podge to give it some extra glittery glamour!
I know Carlyann loves pink so I decided to go with a pink and cream colour scheme. As it's a wedding card I decided to really go for piling on the embellishments (well at least by my standards!). I've used some lovely lace and ribbons from Hobbycraft, flowers from my local garden centre and pearl pin and charm from my stash. Also added a bit of sparkle to the image and flowers with some stickles!!Although I only originally intended to enter this in the Charisma Cardz wedding challenge, it also seems to fit a lot of other challenges too so here goes:
