More cards to share...

I am back again with a couple of cards, I was inspired by a few challenges and had to play along.
So here's my first card...
I was inspired by the photo inspiration at Call Curtain - Pretty and pink, by the sketch at the Sketch Saturday #308 and by the Moxie Fab World's - Handwriting challenge. Making this involved Inking and the heat embossing the panel followed by embellishing it with a hello die cut (sent by a friend), some stamped butterfly and sequins.
 


My second card is purely the display of idea I had :) I wanted to show how stitching can attach two pieces together. So here's my card...

I was inspired by the theme at Virginia's View #3 - Stitching, Cue card at CASology Week 94 - Metal (I have done sewing and sewing is done with a metal needle ;) For colors I was inspired by the Runway Inspired challenge #59 - J. Mendel and for sketch I again used Stamplorations bi weekly sketch challenge :) Making this was easy, I cut the panel diagonally, Inked it up green outside and black inside. made holes on each panel and sewed in the thread, rolled the panels giving them some dimension and adhered them on card base. Finally, I added the spool, needed and some button to finish my card.

Such a simple concept, yet you've really made it into something super special. Love these! Brilliantly done. And btw, congrats to you too, Newbie #1! How exciting that for both of us it's our first submission, and we each only sent one card. I'm still feeling giddy! Can't wait to see what you've made... : ) Bev

  24. What a huge difference of cards here! You've got the super-feminine pink/gold, floral/butterfly, scripty card, and then the bold, leather-like panels, stitched with a heavy thread, partially unattached card. Really love them both, for different reasons obviously : )
