Elegant Love Card with Black Roses

Hello everyone,

Here is my latest make:


There are 45 roses on this card, all hand made by me. I used Sue Willson Camellia dies to make my roses.


Love die cut in red is a Penny Black "Love" die.


Damask pattern peeking in the heart shape background is a free printable that I found on Pinterest, I think...


One more look at the finished card...

I made this card exclusively for the Double D Challenge, since I loved their mood board and theme:



I hope you enjoyed this post.

Scrapy Land Challenge #70

Hello everyone,

it is time for a new challenge at Scrapy Land Blog and the theme is Anything Goes  using dies that Scrapy Land Store carries.
Here is what I made for this challenge inspiration:


I used patterned cardstock with glitter for my base.


I created a window with Spellbinders Labels 31 die, but you can also use Sue Wilson California Collection Decorative Frames as a substitute to create the same effect. I used a die from that same set for my sentiment die cut.

I made the flowers using the Sue Wilson Finishing Touches - Tropical Hibiscus dies
I added microbeads to the stems.

I also added some Cheery Lynn Leafy Flourish diecuts.


One more look at the card...

Please stop by Scrapy Land Blog to see what my team mates have created for this challenge inspiration and join the challenge for two chance to win one of two $10 gift certificates to Scrapy Land Store.

Scrapy Land Challenge #69 Anything Goes

Hello everyone,

It is time for a new challenge at Scrapy Land Blog and this time the theme is Anything Goes using dies that Scrapy Land Store carries.
I made two baby cards for this challenge inspiration:


I used patterned cardstock in pastel colors for the bases.




I added Cheery Lynn English Tea Party Doily.




The next die ontop of the doily is Spellbinders Large Ovals, but you can substitute that die with Lawn Fawn - Large Stitched Oval Stackables Die





Then I added Spellbinders Lonely Hearts Shapeabilities die, again you can substitute this die with Sue Wilson Designs - Striplet - Embroidered for similar effect.

This adorable rocking horse is die from Yvonne Creations - Dies - Tots & Toddlers - Rocking Horse
I added a double tiered bow to finish the design...

I invite you to stop by Scrapy Land Blog and see what my team mates have created for this challenge inspiration and I to join our challenge for a chance to win one of two $10 gift certificates to Scrapy Land Store.
