Oh So Lovely.......Ladies

The first card is a card I made for the lovely Emma (Elf Creations) as a thank you for her support and friendship since I set up my blog. I decided to use my Stampin'Up goodies to make this card. The image is from the Oh So Lovely Hostess Set. I coloured it with my Prismacolors and then went over it with my clear Sakura Glaze pen.I inked all round the edges with a Versa Magic chalk ink pad in Pretty Petunia and matted it onto some SU Lovely Lilac card.I then tied some SU Elegant Eggplant ribbon round it.The card is an 8x8 and I used SU Lovely Lilac and matted some deeper lilac Core'dination card on top. I then used the reverse of the Core'dination card which was a paler lilac and ran it through the Cuttlebug embossing folder with the wee birds and swirls(can't remember what it's called).I then inked it with the Versa Magic chalk ink and matted it onto the SU Lovely Lilac.I cut the fancy corners with my cuttlebug and the sentiment is by Studio G.


The second card I made for the lovely Kath (All That Glitter).Kath is a fellow Scot and makes the most amazing cards.She regularly takes part in card challenges and had mentioned she didn't have any House Mouse Stamps for their challenge blog.I made this wallet card and added some stamped images for her. I used the Gruffies stamp Bouquet Of Lavender and coloured it with my Prismacolours.I faux stitched round the edge of it and matted it onto some SU Lovely Lilac card edged with my Multishaper punch.I then used my Crop-A-Dile Big Bite and added some eyelets and threaded the lilac gingham ribbon through and tied in a bow.The base card is white cardstock matted with SU Lovely Lilac and white card I ran through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder.The sentiment stamp is Studio G.
