Luscious Lace!!


Hi Best Blogging Buddies

It's time again over at In The Pink for a new challenge...  Luscious Lace!!  Well, as people that know me well know, this is right up my street, as I have a drawer crammed with lace of all types... so I really enjoyed putting these cards together. 

The first, I think is a bit vintage-ey...  using a Sarah Kay image and decoupaging it to give a 3D effect.  I think I may have to send this one to myself as I was really please with the result... 

Materials:

And onto my second...


This one is totally away from the vintage feel...  but I still love it just as much!  It's using a sweet little digi image from Whimsie Doodles which I fussy cut and 3D'd.... I love their images and they can be resized so easily, so can fit any size card you choose!

Materials:
  • Image:  Whimsie Doodles - Fairy
  • Papers: Best Creation Inc - Sweet Baby, Personal Impressions - Snowball (Raspberry)
  • Lace:  Bought from Sammy Taylors at Embsay
  • Gems, Buttons, Twine and Glitter from stash
  • Sentiment - computer generated
  • Sentiment Die - Fishtail Banner - Dienamics
I've got to admit that I really enjoyed making these cards and am happy with both of them... maybe Mr Mojo has made a visit back to my craft room....  mind you, it's not easy for him to find space in there with so much crammed in...  he'll have to perch on the corner of my desk!  I read on someone's blog the other day that they have a 6ft x 3ft desk..... but can only ever manage to craft on 6 square inches of it..  How true that is of mine...!

The sun showed itself yesterday here in my bit of Yorkshire... and what a difference it makes.... I feel GOOD!! (and I know there'll be people of the same age as me out there singing the rest of that song now!!)

Big hugs to all and Happy Crafting..

  12. Two wonderful cards Christine, love them both and I can see that you enjoyed making them as it shows in the fabulous results.

    Now you will be shocked but I don't own any lace, BUT after searching for something else today I found some paper lace, oh for goodness sake don't go singing any of their songs.
    I am hoping that will do, so then I can join in, and ' I know that I should', just managed to get the next line in there.

    Perfectly pinkylicious as I expect from you!
    Now...If only I'd thought to use some lace then I could've entered my card too!
    My work desk is only quite small but I still work in the same little area.

    Big hugs

  19. Hi Christine, awwww they are both sooo adorable! Such a sweet image on the first and a super cute one on the second!

    I finally (mostly) cleared my desk at the weekend and I can actually see my craft mat - 1st time in weeks, if not months! Won't last and I'm only doing it as I'm finding it hard to actually make a card!

    Will try for the pink palace this time - I have loads of lace!!
