Challenge: Quotable

Hey all, It been a great week and i want to show off something very special… this creation perfectly coincided with this weeks challenge from Simon Says Stamp and Show: Quotable and i'm extremely happy with the out come…

the story: a friend fell in love with this guy, they dated for a year… but both of their families really didn't like them dating… and when the guy proposed, there was huge argument among the family… so… this got dragged on for a while, until these love birds quit and decided to give up on their love… to stay away from each other… couple of months later in to the struggle, they couldn't do it… they decided to talk to their families again… slowly turn them around… after more than 2 years of convincing, the families agreed to their marriage… 

so with the blessings of their families these two love birds got married….

this is why i thought to add this little quote… "love conquered for a blissful wedded life" appropriate, don't you think… 

the creation: i wanted to do something special for these two, as they are special people… so instead of just putting a heart on to the card.. i did a little embossed heart with UTE clear powder and some gold dusting right when it was hot… on top i stamped with a scrip writing… 

here is a close up!!

hope you enjoy this...

Challenge: Water

This week it's all about water at the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge... So for obvious fact I thought only of getting that water drop effect on a background... I remembered a technique I did while back with similar results and created this…( i know its not the best photo, the lighting was bad… i have learned my lesson, will take a better one in the future)

For this creation I first inked the background with T!M's distress ink Dusty Concord and then added clear embossing powder, heat set and redid whatever area that didn't get covered... Isn't the look simply like water drops... I can't believe I forgot all about this till this week!!!

Enjoy All!!!

Tattered Floral Challenge

It's the Tattered Floral Challenge from T!M, and right on top i had a creative block!!! can you Believe it!!! ahhhh, it sucks… i think i got overly exited on this challenge or something, still trying to figure out what happened… but since i have recovered just in time before the end of the challenge… i had time to do my own thing with the tattered floral die…

Spinning in to creativity…. here is my creation!!!

i wanted to add a little bit of texture, so cut out some slightly embossed card stock, some gauze fabric all cut in with tattered floral die… rolled to make it look like a flower and then i added stones and pearls to the centre… to finish the card, i dyed a lace with wild honey and peeled paint distress stains.. finally, "Mum" was spelled out with glitter monograms…

Chic to be Shabby

its another day for a simon says stamp and show challenge, this time it's all about Shabby Chic!!!

in order to bring the elements of Shabby Chic, i wanted the card to have laces and pearls…. so for the centre, i sewn on a heart from red felt and stuffed in with cotton to make it stand out, it was then covered with copper wire and pearls…

the background was created with victorian velvet and vintage photo and little bit of peeled paint from script stamp and also a swirls stamp

in order for the heart to stand out from the background i stitched a lace in to a circle and adhered it in between the heart and card….

i think that the pearls, lace and the colours make it very shabby chic!!!
