Girly Thank You Card with Love You Lots and Love Sparkles

Today I’m featuring two sets which are on the retiring list but are two of my favourites for creating cute and girly cards.  I’m featuring the cute little elephant on this card but any of the images in Love You Lots could be used. This is a hostess set so only available with an order over £150.00, so if you want to grab it get your order in quick.

I created the background by sponging Pink Pirouette all over a piece of Whisper White measuring 13.5cm x 9.5cm.  I then took Blushing Bride and stamped the large star and star sprinkles stamps from Love Sparkles all over in a random pattern. I love the super girly look this created.

Next I cut out the largest oval from the Stitched Shape Framelits in Watercolour Paper. I stamped the elephant from Love You Lots in Basic Black Archival Ink and left in to dry a little. Once dry I used the Watercolour Pencils and Aqua Painter to colour the image.

As I has already created a matt layer in Silver Foil I wanted to added more silver to the card so I took the Silver Metallic Thread and wound it round and round the pink layer before I adhered to the Silver Foil. I did this as I have no silver ribbon but really like the soft effect it has created. To finish off the card I added a Silver Doily behind the oval panel.

Here’s the finished card, I love it:

Happy 10th Anniversary Card

This year one of my best friends is celebrating her 10th wedding anniversary so I wanted to make her a special card, the Milestone Moments stamps from the Spring/Summer Catalogue is perfect for this kind of occasion.

I chose Pink Pirouette for the card base and embossed the front half of the card using the beautiful Falling Petals Textured Impressing Embossing Folder, don’t the petals look like tiny little love hearts?

To create a focal point for the card I took one of the Lace Doilies from the Spring/Summer catalogue, I love these because one side is Very Vanilla and the other side is Whisper White which makes them super versatile. I chose the Very Vanilla side to complement the Satin Ribbon that I used for the bow.

I die cut a circle from the Layering Circles Framelits and the Stitched Shape Framelits in Very Vanilla and Pink Pirouette. The greeting taken from the Milestone Moments stamp set was stamped in Soft Suede.

I think this is lovely simple card and I hope my friend and her husband like it.
