For this challenge I have done a Birthday Card with a Bookmark.
I have used 2 types of backing paper both in Lilac Colour and distressed around the edge to give a bit of softness. On the strip of card on the left hand side I have added a strip of lace then on top put some lilac ribbon, flowers and a Magnolia Tilda Stamp. For the pocket I have used a digi sentiment and coloured that in. For the bookmark I have stamped the same Magnolia Tilda but also on the top of the bookmark added a stamp scroll and I have coloured them in with promarkers. To finish off I have added some more ribbon to the bookmark and some crystal gems.
For my "Anything Goes - Wild Orchid Challenge" http://wildorchidchallenge.blogspot.co.uk I have decided to decorate a white paper bag. I have used 2 types of backing paper and distressed around the edge using a momento ink. I have then used a white dollie (from any shop) and for my topper I have used a digi stamp and coloured it in using promarkers. I have used Crystal Sparkles on the wings just because I like "Bling" !!! For the embellishments on this bag I made myself wording flags and stuck them to some pink ribbon and added some pearl beads. The rest of the embellishments I have bought from Wild Orchid and they are as follows:
This is another one of my cards I have made using J & C Creations Products.
On white card I stamped Rye Grass Flourish from the Heartfelt Creations stamp collection. I have then sprinkled on Crushed Glass Glitter (Bronze) had heated it up with a heat gun. To soften the edges I have used Tim Holtz distress Ink - Colour: Weathered Wood. I then backed in onto black card. For my main image I stamped "Outside my Window" Heartfelt Creations stamp using the weathered wood distress Ink. I then die cut the image using a spellbinders die and distressed around the edge using the same distress ink. The 2 strips that is going down and across the card is made by using double-sided thin tape then sprinkle Cosmic Shimmer - Vintage UT Embossing Crystals (Tarnished Silver) and by heating it up it mixed together. I then cut it out and it looks abit like ribbon. The embellishment that I used are black candy's and finished it off with a happy birthday sentiment.
I have choosen 1 colour for my card and that is different shades of Brown. I found 2 types of backing papers striped and spotted. I have used the striped paper for the main backing and backed that onto brown card. I have then put double sided tape around the edge and used Crushed glass glitter (Bronze) and used my heat gun to melt it slightly which gives some texture. My next layer is backed again onto brown card but around the edges I have destressed it with Walnut stain distress Ink. I have wrapped some brown ribbon around the middle as tied a bow at one end. For my main topper I have used the Heartfelt Creations Stamp called "Outside my window" for the image and stamped that using the walnut stain distress Ink. I have framed this picture using "Decorative Oval Window" again from Heartfelt Creations. To finish off I have added a few flowers from my craft stock and a "Thinking of You" sentiment.
