Wedding, Floral and Summer

I've got a threesome of cards to show you today so grab a drink and pull up a chair.

My first is a wedding card using a LOTV topper with a Memory Box frame die, Dovecraft punched flowers, Xcut heart die and Uniko sentiment stamps.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Double D challenge 'anything wedding'

Country View challenge 'hearts'

Words 2 Craft By challenge 'keep love in your heart'

The Ribbon Girl challenge 'any image'

Next up is a stamp from Penny Black called 'the unfolding' - now this is a favourite of mine as you can colour it with Memento ink and stamp straight onto a card base as I did and get a one layer card with no ink showing through as well as a fabulous image which looks like a watercolour. The sentiment is also a Penny Black stamp and I used a Dovecraft punch on a couple of the corners.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Penny Black and More challenge 'anything goes'

Stamping Sensations challenge 'use your favourite stamp'

Allsorts challenge 'flower power'

Time Out challenge 'celebration with option of one layer cards'

Addicted to Stamps and More challenge 'make your mark'

That's Crafty challenge 'keep it simple'

And last up here's a summertime card using an image from Joanna Sheen's 'Faye Whittaker' cd with strips of leftover papers from LOTV and Bearly Mine Designs.

 I shall enter this in the following challenges

CD Sunday challenge 'sun, sand or sea'

Noor! Design challenge 'summer'

Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets'

Well the forecast for the next few days is wet weather so I'm going to have a sort out of all my digi stamps.... I decided that it's time I deleted the ones I won't use and make sure all the others are backed up on a USB stick and maybe I'll even get a few printed off and coloured while I'm at it.

Thanks for taking the time to pop by today and I hope you have a great week.

Beautiful cards Andrea, love the beach scene, than you for joining in at CD Sunday

Pamela said...

I love your CD Sunday entry Andrea. The images on the Faye Whittaker CD are some of my favourites. And I also used to buy Bearly Mine papers - such a shame they stopped trading. Thanks for continuing to support the challenge at CD Sunday.

A delightful threesome, Andrea! That wedding card is simply adorable! I agree with you on the PB stamp being so perfect for this technique. Such an impactful result with little effort! I don't have this image, but I have some PB brush stroke images that are brilliant used this way. And, lastly, what a brilliant happy card for summertime!! I hope you are keeping well! Hugs, Darnell

I like the floral design and design wedding invitations too all the time. But I must say, if I were to be getting married, I would definitely be inspired by this post.
