Silver Wedding Anniversary Card

Hello Bloggers,

I made this card for a friend of mine, who has obviously been happily married for over 25 years now :)

25 years married!!!!! Grown up kids! But between ourselves we still call each other "girl" :)

Well, anyways, lots of silver on this card. :) Featuring the embossed and silver-gilded with Inka-Gold silver wax frame and the shiny mirri board numbers, embossed with the Fleur-de-lis pattern.

I could not help adding at least one bright flower to it.
Here is some detail from a different angle: beads, sequins, some tulle ribbon, pearls etc.
And the flowers, of course :) All handmade. This time I did not use any dies for the flowers, just punches.

Mixed Media Birthday Card

This card has been picked as a DT Favourite @Crafty Girlz Challenges!


-------------------------------------
Hello Bloggers,

My mixed media experiment today :)

The background is created by gesso-glueing some kitchen foil scraps onto cardstock, and watercoloring the whole thing. I was surprised it actually held together :)

I used some Creall Do&Dry modelling material and Mod Podge molds to create the butterfly and the decorative square element above the sentiment. Originally, they recommend hot glue with the molds, but having tried both, I was a lot happier with the results I got with the modelling paste.

The sentiment is stamped and heat embossed.

The MD die-cut frame is gilded with DecoArt Metallic Lustre, it makes the embossing on the frame a bit more prominent.
The flowers are all handmade. Composed of Joy!Crafts 6002/0158 Floral Flourishes Bloem 3 and Joy! Crafts Vintage Flourishes 6003/0066 Flower 5 Leaf petals.
Completed with pearls, tiny pompoms and other random stuff on it :)

Used:
  • Creall Do&Dry Lightweight modelling material. Air-drying.
  • Mod Podge Mod Molds
  • DecoArt Metallic Lustre - Champagne Ice
  • Joy!Crafts 6002/0158 Floral Flourishes Bloem 3
  • Joy! Crafts Vintage Flourishes 6003/0066 Flower 5 Leaf
  • My Favorite Things Die-namics Layered Leaves (MFT-399)
  • Cheery Lynn Designs  DL278 Horizon Fishtail Banners
  • Precious Marieke - PM10060 - Flowery - Flowery Branch

Easter Card with a Gorjuss Girl


This card made it to Top 3 at Crafty Catz!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hello Bloggers,

I bought this gorgeous die the other day, and I could not be happier! It's one of the Santoro Gorjuss girls, namely GOR 503003 - The Scarf. The cool thing about this girl is that you can use any papers to match your creation, they will always coordinate as much as you care to make them, and the possibilities are endless!
I used some Christmas bauble stamps on the eggs as the pattern is designed to imitate a balloon-like shape :)
