Going 'WILD' at Just us Girls

It's our WILD CARD WEEK at Just us Girls
NANCY as our HOST this week has a fabulous challenge for you
to make your SENTIMENT the focal point of your project.
When I saw this challenge I KNEW what stamp I wanted to use.
It is the Beautiful Vintage Happy Birthday 
from Inspired by Stamping.
Also from IBS the DP's - Vintage Floral
Fancy Labels 1, flowers and lace.
and also
Paper doily inked with Tim Holtz Vintage Rose
Inked edges - Antique Linen
Gold Leaf  Embossing Powder
Kaszazz Ivory Seam Binding
Flourish with a Bling Antique Gold Pearls
The card stock I used is Metallic Sculptured Paper.
Just couldn't help myself. I recently bought this stamp and knew
it would be perfect for this challenge too so made 2 cards.
I went for a simple look - can't say clean as the technique
I used was Shaving Cream and Reinkers.
Now you all know how messy and fun it is.
This time I used basic card stock
and my background inks I used were
Stampin' Up Rich Razzleberry & Yo Yo Yellow
I inked the Do Crafts Typography stamp in Rich Razzleberry
and filled in the S in yellow.
Also spritzed it to take away the stark white look.
The ribbon is from SU Purely Pomegranate.
Sprinkled a few sequins to add the final touch.
Hope you like what I made for our 'WILD CHALLENGE'
and you get the chance to join in this weeks challenge
because you then have the chance to become our
CHIC of the WEEK and be in the running to
share with us as our GUEST DESIGNER our
creations for MARCH.
Thanks for stopping by
See you there!

It's a Colour Sketchy Male card.

Well what can I say about this card?
I found several challenges I could enter it in
and they are
Sunday Stamps - The Colour
The Paper Players - The sketch
and Ruby's Rainbow - The Masculine Birthday
Because it is close to Valentine's Day there are
lots of challenges using Red and instead of
going all 'lovey dovey' my choice was to make
a Male card so I decided to go with the above sketch
because of it's simplicity - and great colours to boot
I used the following products on my card -
Kraft and White Ripple card stock
Stampin' Up Feeling Sentimental
for image and sentiment.
Spellbinders Circles Dies
DP - Farmhouse Paper Company
Memento ink - Love Letter & Antique Linen
Own ribbon & cotton trim
Small punch for little rectangles on ribbon
Distressing around edges
Pop Dots
So that's it for now. Hope you like what you see
and leave me a comment.

All Sorts Challenge - Lace & Pearls

Once again I find myself drawn to the current challenge over at
All Sorts Challenge Blog which is one of my favourites -
Lace & Pearls.
I love making vintage style cards and with the
 theme for this challenge -
well I thought it perfect.
I don't normally use predominately brown colours
but found this lovely piece of  DP so went with it.
I have a few unknowns here as a lot of it
was just in my stash.
This is what I used -
Brown & cream card stock
The gorgeous die cut is from Marianne Designs
in front of Spellbinders Floral Ovals
The beautiful piece of lace is from my sister's stash -
 her passion is patchwork hence I get to raid her supplies
when I go visit.
Flowers are also from my stash
Kaisercraft Pearls
MS punch for the sprigs
McGill's Vintage Labels
Sentiment is SU - Pocket Silhouettes
I hope you like what I made and you are kind enough
to leave me a comment so thanks for stopping by.
