Well that last two weeks just flew by - in fact my YEAR is flying by!! I'm here again showing my DT cards for In the Pink... we're having a wonderful time seeing all the fab entries and all the entrants sharing their secret (or not so secret) pink passion!!
If you'd like to pop over to see who the Perfect Pinkies for the last challenge were - click HERE
As this post is going to be a bit picture heavy - I'll get straight on with it. My first card is one of my very favourite type... a dinky circular card... using a cute image..
- Image - Gracie Lollipop from Lori Boyd Designs - digi image
- DP - scraps that were hanging around my scrap basket
- lace - from Samuel Taylors at Embsay
- sentiment - Pebbles Rub on - banner cut by hand
- Stickles for dots on top half, and glitter on Gracie! (of course.... )
- Copics to colour
My second card is an easel card (5 x 7")... I had to use a join to get it the right way up (if you see what I mean!)
I'm afraid I can't tell you what either of the papers are... I've had them in a long time and there is no name on them. But the flower is very simple to make.... I used a small scalloped circle nestie to cut out three of the same size. Then I used a mini-mister to break the fibres down a bit - scrunched them all up.. then stuck them all back together, re-arranging the scrunching as I did. I added a large gem (from The Hobby House), and some stickles round the edge of the flower... and that was it!! Effective huh??
- Sentiment - done on PC
- Ribbon - Samuel Taylors
- Martha Stewart Border Punch
- Stamping Up Label punch
- Scalloped Circle Nestie
- Bazzil cardstock
- Other DP with no name!!
Hope you're all well out there in blogland.... extra hugs to those that maybe aren't...
