Rose Basket Card.

Hello Bloggers,

Today's card is about roses. I love fluffy big 3D roses on cards, but sometimes you just need something ... simply flatter. Something that would fit into a regular envelope. Marianne Design offer us a lovely solution - the Lr0294 Rose and the Lr0295 Rosebud.

I entered this card into the MARIANNE DESIGN DIVA'S Challenge Flowers, Bloemen, Fiori, Blumen, Kwiaty, Flori, Fleur

Oh, No! A Negative Christmas Card?!!

Hello, Bloggers,

I know it's kind of early to start thinking Christmas in June. Yet, if the paper I have been planning to use for this particular purpose says Prettige Feestdagen, so shall be it - Christmas. The Kaartenuitdaging 239 Challenge gave me the push I'd needed for a long time and here it is - my negative Christmas card :)
DIY Christmas Card. Marianne Design Col 1337
The idea with the paper was to use the words on the paper as the sentiment rather than stamping it. The cut out is a Lin & Lene Stencil from Set 1201/0044. Starring to the left of it is one of the cutest dies ever - the Marianne Design Collectables Col 1337 Eline’s Envelope. I love this die, it always turns out so pretty! The golden swirls looking out from under the envelope are the "left overs" of the gift box inside the envelope. :)

Christmas is nearer than you think!
I am not kidding - check out the count down in the upper left corner :)

Hot Tea Steamy Swirls

The swirls are embossed with Embossalicious Embossing Folder 8" X 8" - Regency Swirls EF8-RGSWIRL. I love the pattern!

Black And Gold.

This card was created for Challenge #233 "een kaart met één enkele afbeelding in een kader".

So, that's what it basically is - a card with an image in a frame :)

The layers are raised on foam pads.
It was such a pain taking a picture of it - the camera focused stubbornly on the shiny gold and totally ignored the embossed background.

I used:
  • Couture Creations CO723025 Lovingly Baroque, 5x7 Embossing Folder
  • Marianne Design Creatables Lr0139 Profile
  • Marianne Design Creatables Lr0236 Anja`S Grote Ovaal
