See U Soon!

Happy Retirement!

Hello,
happy Monday everyone!

Hope you are off to a great week and everything is going well.

This is a quick post to share with you the card I made this week.  Tilda is waiving to say see you soon.  She was coloured with my copics and the sky was created with my water colour crayons.  The paper is DCWV Luxury Stack along with white and blue card stock.  MS lace punch was used along with SU Daisies #2 die.  All the paper is edged with walnut stain. 

 
Close up of the WOC flowers that were sprayed with gold glimmer mist, the sparkles aren't showing in the photo though.  Blue satin ribbon is layered over blue organza ribbon.
White pearls and gems are used to add some sparkle.  


And the inside for sentiments ....


I am entering this in Just Magnolia #99 Challenge - gems, flowers, ribbon & lace -

Have a wonderful week and hope you enjoyed your visit,

best wishes,

Spring Love #2

Love is in the air #2

Hello,
hope your week is going well for you.  It's already the middle of the week and the
weekend will be here before we know it.


This is #2 card made for Spring weddings.  The image is from Funky kits, I made my sky with water colour crayons, her dress is dazzling diamond sparkles and pearls on her tiara
I used DCWV paper, MS punches, Sizzix die and embellished with pearls, liquid pearls,
ribbon from my stash and WOC flowers.   

I stained all the edges with walnut stain and then used stardust stickles along the edges.
I edged the image with gathered ribbon to frame the image.
A look at the inside for sentiments ...


I am entering this into 7 Kids College Fund Challenge #17
and Wild Orchid Challenge #19.

Have a great weekend,
best wishes,
Katheleen.

Spring Love

Love is in the air ...

Hello,

How was your weekend?  Sure goes by quickly, Monday seems to slide in far too soon.
But spring is upon us!

With spring comes the flurry of weddings surrounded in love.
This is the card I made this week.


I used basil lavender card stock, vanilla card stock and a special homemade paper embedded with leaves and flowers.  The image is stempelglede stamped with in perfect plum and edged with stardust stickles.  Below the top heart, I have framed the base heart with platinum pearls, difficult to see because I didn't take an angle picture.  Sizzix dies, MS punches and magnolia dies were used to embellish.  I stained all the edges with walnut and perfect plum.

And a quick peek at the inside ....



A stempelglede sentiment was used.  All the flowers are from WOC as are the pearls.
The organza ribbons are from my stash and are two shades of lavender.

And the righthand side for the handwritten sentiments.

 
I am entering this in Creative Inspirations Challenge.

Have a wonderful Monday,
Best wishes,
Katheleen.

You are Fabulous

So glad that you are you...

Hello,

how is your week going?  Hope all is well with you.
With Spring around the corner, this gives me hope and brings gardening and flowers to mind.


I made this card with an image from Sugar Nellie and coloured her with my copics.  I made my sky with my water colour pencils again and it seems to have turned out.  Both the print and solid colour paper are from the DCWV linen closet stack.  I used MS punch for the edges and corners and all edges are stained with walnut stain.  I added star dust stickles around the picture and
again on the corners on the inside.

Here is how it opens into an easle.


The lace was bought from a fabric store and is from my stash.  The pearls are MS and the flowers are prima. I used a Stempelglede stamp on the solid paper for added pattern.  The sentiment is computer generated.

I am entering this card into the Crafts 4 Eternity #8;
Crafty Catz #71; Creative Inspirations #101;
Wild Orchid #18;  Simon Says No Cook Recipe;
Friday Sketcher #143 and I used their sketch for this card.

Hope you enjoyed you visit and please come back again soon.

Best wishes,
Katheleen
