Different occasions

I just wanted to make a selection of cards for different occasions for the florist. The card above has been made using papers from Craftwork Cards, Rubber Romance image with a little paper piecing, I've added glossy accents and glitter to the chipboard numbers, ribbon from my stash with some beads I won from My time to Craft challenge blog a while back.
I thought I would make a similar card to the previous one with different colour scheme. This proved to be trickier than I thought as I didn't have any teal coloured card stock to mat and layer the image so I cheated and used my teal Dauber Duo to ink the edges, papers again from Craftwork Cards. The brown ribbon was from a box of Thorntons choccies, teal ribbon from American Crafts, beads from my stash.
Now I don't know if anyone else is the same but I find it really difficult now to make a card without a stamped image. So I thought I would set myself a little challenge and do just that. My photography seems to be getting worse as these cards look much better in real life. Anyway I've used for the above card paper from Papermania Exquisite pad, the die-cut flower is Sizzix flower layers #4, the swirly thing is Sizzix decorative accents #2, which have been embossed through my Big Shot using Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, sentiment has been stamped and heat embossed.

The card above is just a variation from the previous again using papermania exquisite paper, DCWV cardstock, Sizzix flower layers #4, Sizzix decorative accent swirl, ribbon from WHAT!! and a few AB gems from papermania, sentiment stamped and heat embossed.
Well I hope everyone has a lovely weekend, we've had awful rain this morning, but it looks like the sun is coming out.....yay!!! but for how long I wonder. Thanks for taking the time to visit my 'lol oasis, ttfn xx vicki xx

Great cards Vicki. I find it really hard to make a card without a stamped image as well. Maybe that should be my next challenge!

My top two cards are my favourites. So sassy and fun.

I am utterly addicted to Rubber Romance images - I love em! Especially when they are direct from the designer and cost about £2.50! But, this is the one I really wanted but I still haven't got it yet! I feel a purchase coming on..... ~x~

Crafty Sarah said...

lovely cards, I always think it's funny how the same image in different colours can look so different. Wish I'd been as busy as you, seem to have lost my crafting head at the mo. vicki x
