Sketch Challenge – CCMC #247

Another sketch challenge over at Create with Connie and Mary and a lovely one it is too:

And here’s my interpretation:P1030695This card incorporates some of my favourite Stampin’ Up! goodies – the paper from the Print Poetry pack is one of my favourites, I don’t know what I’ll do when its all gone! However, the Artisan Embellishments Kit is so delicious I know I’ll have to get at least one more. I love the Primrose Petals Seam binding that’s included. I crinkled it up to tuck behind the flower.

One thing that I’m not quite sure about is why I have a whole pack of Primrose Petals cardstock. Don’t get me wrong, it’s lovely, but I know it’s not what I intended to order. However, neither can I think what I meant to order!!! Never mind, it’s been put to good use here.

You can’t really see the Very Vanilla DSP that makes up one of the layers. The funny thing that neither could I whilst I was making the card, it was only when I came to photograph it in proper light that I could see how fab it really is.

Don’t you just love that flower embellishment. Please, please Stampin’ Up make all the elements of this kit available separately!

Wedding card CCMC#245

It’s another sketch over at Create With Connie and Mary for challenge #245. As it is my cousin Olivia’s wedding on Saturday I decided to combine the challenge with creating her wedding card.

I’m so pleased that I bought the Artisan Embellishments Kit when I placed my last Stampin Up! order. The lace that comes with it is absolutely dreamy and I hope Stampin’ Up! will sell it by the metre sometime very soon.

P1030570

I used Crumb Cake Designer Papers on Whisper White cardstock for the base and then ran the lace across the card, using Sticky Strip to adhere it. I’ve made a bow from the seam binding and attached a rose, which is from the kit, to the centre, first curling the stem around a cocktail stick. I tucked in the “LOVE” ticket, which is also from the kit and finally his and hers butterflies which I stamped and cut out.

I have another friend getting married in the summer and intend to do a similar version of this card for her too as I just love how its turned out.
