Hope you are all having a great week so far! Still a bit aways from the weekend, but I'm sure it will be here in no time. To help pass the time, why not join us for another fantastic challenge over at Creative Card Crew? Our theme this week is bling. So, bring on the bling- we want to see it all!! This fortnight we are being sponsored by the Scrapping Center, the randomly selected winner will receive a $15 voucher to spend in their store.
All dies used on this card are from Cheery Lynn. There's the Bird Cage and the Miniature Rose Strip. From their new release is the Vertical Mesh Hearts, Chrysanthemum Strip (yellow flower), Shasta Daisy Strip (two purple flowers), the Ivy Corner Flourish, and the Ivy Strip. There is a white feather tucked into the left side of the bird cage. It is super fluffy, and despite how many times I sharpened the image, it still just looks like a blurry splotch. Sorry about that- it really does look lovely in person.
I just love this design and it was so simple to make! The die cuts used here are the Sweethearts Edger and Lace Corner Deco set A. The paper I have used is from My Mind's Eye and the bird cage picture was a cut out from my DCWV stack. Rhinestones were added to the corner dies, leaves and edgers- these, as well as the swirl, are by Recollections.
I really like the look of intertwining my foliage into my die cuts. It just has a vintage-y romantic feel to it. I heat embossed the bird cage with Shabby White Fran-tage by Stampendous. The heart stick pins are from the Hobby House.
The Vertical Mesh Hearts was heat embossed with Shabby Blue Fran-tage. There are also small scattered rhinestones here and there, as well as on the leaves.
I am enjoying these flower strip dies. I used distress inks followed by a light layer of Stardust Stickles for some pretty glimmery shine. I used Victorian Velvet on the two Shasta Daisies, Mustard Seed on the Chrysanthemum, Fired Brick on the two roses, and Old Paper on the foliage. On the roses and foliage, I also spotted on some Gesso. The glittery heart brads are by Pebbles.
Tea Dye distress ink, but I left it blank as I am not sure what I am going to do with this card yet. The Sweetheart's Edger was heat embossed with Shabby White Fran-tage, as were the corner dies seen above.
Thank you so very much for stopping by to see my bling card. I do hope you like it, and will give this style a try!
