CR84FN48 - Happy Birthday ....

.... Here we are again - week two of CR84FN48, with our lovely colours of lavender, chartreuse and grey.  We've already had lots of wonderful submissions and I hope you'll join us again this week.

The inspiration photos are from Leslie at A Creative Mint - she takes such pretty pictures.

I've made another birthday card with our colours - I think they're great for pretty, feminine cards.

This is another of the cards that I've been making for my Auntie Sue - as I'm off to America in a few weeks, she wanted me to give her a supply before I move.  I stamped the pretty daisy trellis design from Pic-Nic patterns onto the base of the card.  The flower image was stamped in Versamark, embossed with detail silver and coloured with my Staedtler pencils - they give such a soft look to the image.  I mounted the picture onto a pale green mirri card cut out using the ornate Fleur de Lis squares.  The image actually comes from a treasure box stamp, and the border beneath the flowers was made from the edge of the stamp.  I finished off the card with a simple sentiment in a fancy tag.


Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Pic-Nic Patterns; Creative Expressions - Treasure Box HHii80J
Inks: Memento - Lulu Lavender; Versamark
Spellbinders: Fancy Tags (S4-235), Fleur de Lis Squares (S4-318) # 3
Accessories:  Embossing powder, mirri card, and card from stash

Do check out the CR84FN blog to see more inspiration cards from our Guest Designer Monika, and also from the design team.

That's all for now.  This is a scheduled post as I'm away for the weekend visiting my Mum, Aunt and Uncle - the last chance we're going to get before we head of to America.  See you soon.

What a beautiful floral stamp, and love the layering and stamped background! I'm going to try and make for this today as it's my favourite colour combo!

Inventive use of the Treasure Box stamp - I thinking outside the box so to speak! It teams very well with the WMS patterning too.
I love your die-cuts arranging too.

What lovely soft colours Deborah - as you say, perfect for a feminine birthday! I would never have thought to use silver embossing to outline colouring but it works beautifully.

Marybeth said...
