Peach Roses and Lace

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

Does the title of this post sound familiar?  If you think you read it in my post a couple weeks ago, you'd be right!  With the exception of the small roses within the ribbon lace, which I've instead replaced with rhinestones, this card shows the entire plate...


Of course, I could have easily added a sentiment in the space, but to be honest, I didn't even think about that!  Ooops!

Card: Unbranded white card blank and Clarity's ivory parchment
Groovi Plates: Linda's Roses & Lace and Diagonal Piercing Grid
Tools and embellishments: Pergamano embossing and piercing tools, Clarity brads, Arteza pencils, and rhinestones from my stash

Challenges...
#36 AG at The Flower Challenge
#100 AG at A Bit More Time To Craft
#361 Use Snippets at Pixie's Snippets Playground (large snippet of parchment used)

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.

Mid Challenge Reminder for TRCC - Beautiful Brown

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

It's the middle of the month, so I'm back with a reminder of my card for The Rainbow Card Challenge.  We are a monochromatic challenge and while we ask you to keep your creations as such, we appreciate the need for neutral colors and or a hint of others.

This month our theme is BEAUTIFUL BROWN, though the former is optional, and here's the inspiration image...


And here's a reminder of my card, the details of which can be found on my original post...

The roses and frame are both from plates which have quickly become favorites.  I'm sure you can see why?

Beautiful Brown at Rainbow Card Challenge

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

It's the first of the month, so that means it's time for a new challenge at Rainbow Card Challenge.  Our theme this month is Beautiful Brown although your card does NOT have to be beautiful, if you don't want to... though I'm sure it will be!  What we do ask is that it is MONOCHROMATIC BROWN, but we don't mind a hint of another color if necessary.


And here's my card...


Aren't those owls cute?  As soon as I saw them, I thought they were perfect for an anniversary card, so I created this one for a couple of dear friends whose anniversary was yesterday.  It was also the first I did with such intricate picot cutting.

Card: Unbranded kraft, SU's early espresso, and Clarity clear parchment
Groovi plates: Nested Scallop Squares and Woodland Owls
Tools and embellishments: Pergamano embossing, piercing, and cutting tools, Arteza pencils and brads from my stash

Challenges...
#198 Emboss It at Crafty Gals Corner
#169 AG at Creative Fingers Challenge
Wk #30 AG at Polkadoodles

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.

Framed Flowers

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

Much like last month, I assure you that this and the other cards I'll share throughout August were not created with this month's Rainbow Card Challenge in mind... it really is just a happy coincidence.


I've used exactly the same plates I did for last week's card to show you just how versatile Groovi plates are.  By only using certain elements, you're effectively doing the same as if you're masking stamps... though with much less mess!  Grin

Card: Unbranded white, SU's Crumb Cake, Clarity parchment
Groovi Plates: Queen Mary and Linda's Bees
Tools and embellishments: Arteza pencils and brads from my stash

Challenges...
#66 AG at Crafts Galore Encore
#292 AG at Brown Sugar
AG at TTCRD

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.
