Crafty Cardmakers - #123 - Ribbon, Lace & Pearls

Hello Everyone!

It's time for another wonderful challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and More! Thank you so much for all of the wonderful entries last challenge, I sure hope you will join us again this time around!

Jackie is hosting our challenge today and her theme is 'Ribbons/Lace and Pearls', so she would like to see ribbons or lace, {or both} AND pearls on your creations.

Here is what I came up with.


One lucky winner will get £12.00 to spend at either in store or on line at Woodware Craft Collection. The Woodware design team will be playing along with our challenge, so be sure to hop over there and check out their lovely creations! There is also a $12 gift certificate for Di's Digistamps up for grabs.




I decided to do something really soft but fancy at the same time. This is going to my brother Paul and his amazing wife Sarah for their anniversary. They are a soft spoken but really classy couple, so I wanted their card to reflect that.

The backgrounds stamps I used are Rubbernecker Baroque Background and a stamp from the BoBunny Stained Textures set. The die is Memory Box Large Chloe Stem which I added some pearls to.


The frame and bird stamp are from the Kaisercraft Porcelain Rose stamp set and the ink is Hero Arts Shadow Ink Soft Sand. The frames are cut out using Spellbinders Labels Twenty and have drops of Ranger Liquid Pearls White Opal.


The sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations All Seasons. The doily die is Tim Holtz Distressed Doily. The lace and ivory pearls are from my stash and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

PEARLS, PEARLS EVERYWHERE!!




I am entering my card into the following wonderful challenges:


I would like to say Thank You to all of the very talented Design Team members at ABC Challenges for choosing my Pink Tag Card as the winner of their "S is for Shabby Chic" challenge! I am so very thrilled and honoured and I will display their badge with pride!! And now, for their new challenge...

- ABC Challenges - T is for Tic Tac Toe - ( I chose Ribbon, Sentiment and Pearls)




That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments. I read and appreciate every single one! If you have any questions, please let me know.

  18. Hi Pamellia
    A vision of pearly, lacey loveliness. Your brother and his wife will swoon over this.
    You asked on my blog who "John" is? He is my good friend who has managed to get on Creative Expressions DT (big UK craft company) and his cards were featured on Create and Craft (UK craft TV channel) at the weekend. Coincidentally, they were on Sue Wilson's shows, who owns Rubbernecker. . . . .who made your stamp on this card!
    Google John Next Door if you want to peek at his blog.
    Phew! I'll shut up now , but you did ask lol!
    Have a great day.
