Rainbow Lady's Challenge # 151 - Lady in Red

Thursday again folks and a new challenge over at Rainbow Lady's, this week we want you to remember the song Lady in Red and come up with something on that theme.
For my card I have gone back to Debbi Moore and printed out this decoupage, the backing paper is another of my favourites when I'm in a hurry and don't want to build my collage background.

This weeks challenge is once again sponsored by Joanna Sheen and everyone can spend a voucher from that lady's shop, so come on over and join us you could be the winner!

A couple of wedding cards

I was asked for a couple of wedding cards for the same couple, one from the girls mum and one form her sister. I wanted to make them look different and hopefully have managed this, the first card is a digi image from Teddy Bo which I saw and thought just the thing. I have printed onto a pearl papaer and colured with Promarkers, added glitter to the dress and veil. The heart was cut out on the cricut, the back piece was white but I coloured with chalk to give it a soft pink look and added pearls and a few flowers to finish it off. Didn't know what to do a bout the sentiment and then remembered the calendar stamps from LOTV so stamped and embossed with silver and I think it finishes the card off quite well.

The second card is made with a Joanna Sheen stamp which I just had to have and never used, I have had the paper for so long I can't think when I bought it but I was at a stage when I was buying all sorts of things and just putting them away so I am now at the stage where I'm bringing them all out again and saving a few pennies. The strip is done with the Cuttlebug and lightly glittered with a bit of lace added, the bride is embossed with silver and glittered. I have added a few flowers and the die cut spray is one of the Marianne dies.

I just hope they like them now they're finished. x

CD Sunday - Stamping

Good morning crafters, it's another beautiful day here in Wigan and hopefully one where I'll be out in the garden sunning myself while planting the strawberries.

This week on  CD Sunday we want you to use some rubber, yes I know we are a CD challenge blog but we all love to do other things too.

We are being sponsored this week by Digi's with Attitude so you culd win something just for entering you card or project.

This week I've dug out a very old stamp that I bought from Ebay just because I fell in love with it, these stamps are now available a lot cheaper and unmounted but I still haven't bought any of those, I've coloured the image with promarkers and then dusted the background with chalk to get a soft blue for the sky and the grass is chalked too. My CD element is the backing paper from ATC Assistant by Joanna Sheen, I was looking for something small and as these papers are designed to be used on an atc they are just the thing I wanted.  I've used a little embossed paper and a ribbon to add some interest and the sentiment is a stamp which was free on a magazine front.  My flowers are from Wild Orchid who have a fabulous selection as well as some lovely must have hat pins.

I do hope you'll come over and join us and meet our guest who I'm sure you're going to enjoy.
