DL.ART Thankful Thursday #215 - Ribbon and Sparkle

Hello everyone and happy Friday!! I hope you have fun plans for the weekend :) Yesterday was the start of a new Thankful Thursday Challenge at DL.ART and the theme is Ribbons and Sparkle. My project is a a day late but I've created a couple of breast cancer support cards in honor of breast cancer awareness month (October). If you use the code l01210, Diana will give you a 10% discount on your DL.ART purchase.

I purchased the Courage Stamp and Die Set by Essentials by Ellen a few months ago and this is the first time I've used it. For the sparkle, I used sparkly paper from Core'dinations.

I stamped the leaves and flowers from the Courage Stamp set and then layered the awareness ribbon on top, cutting it twice and adding foam tape between layers for dimension.

This gorgeous ribbon is Pink Champagne from The Vintage Vineyard Bundle and the Twine is also from Diana's shop.

This gorgeous ribbon is Cabernet, also from The Vintage Vineyard Bundle.

I am entering these in the following challenges:

1) Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
2) Jo's Scrap Shack Funday Friday - Anything Goes

Now it's your turn!! Head on over to DL.ART to see the amazing projects my design team sisters have created for this challenge. Then link up your Ribbon and Sparkle. I can't wait to see what you create :)

Shabby Chic Card Tutorial for Lemoncraft

Hello, everyone!! It's my turn to post on the Lemoncraft Blog and I have a tutorial to share with you on how I make shabby chic cards featuring several Lemoncraft products from the House of Roses collection.

These are the cards I will be making today :)

For the base of the cards, I used heavyweight (110 lb) cardstock, cut 5 1/2 x 5 1/2. The next layer of paper is from the House of Roses Basic Stack, measuring 5 1/4 x 5 1/4. I distressed the edges of both layers, as shown on the left, using a Zutter Distress-it-All, but you could use any distressing tool.

After selecting the images I wanted to use from the Vintage Time 005 Sheet, I cut an oval window in the top layer of paper (5 x 5) from the House of Roses 12x12 Collection.

Next, I cut frames for the windows using nesting oval dies. The smaller oval die is the one I used to cut the window.

I wanted the frame to have some dimension, so I added foam tape to the back before I adhered it to the paper.

I also added foam tape to the top layer of paper for added dimension.

Next, I selected an assortment of embellishments to add to the cards including Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, ribbon and leaves die cut from papers from the House of Roses Basic Stack.

I cut butterflies from the Vintage Time 008 Sheet and then colored them with a clear Wink of Stella pen for some shimmer. I added foam tape to the back of the butterflies, too.

Next, I start adding the embellishments.

For the sentiments, I chose a sheet of paper from the House of Roses Ephemera Cards and cut a banner. I then cut a banner in vellum, stamped the image with Versamark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I then layered the vellum over the paper.

Once the sentiment was adhered, I added some Cream Cotton Lace beneath the banners.  The clock is from the Vintage Time 009 Sheet.

For a little additional texture, I added some Tu-Tu Pink Prills.

I added a touch of water to white acrylic paint and splattered it on the cards.

For the final touch, I added some pearls.

And here is the finished card :)

And the second card:

I am entering these in the following challenges:

1) Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
2) Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
3) Jo's Scrap Shack Funday Friday - Anything Goes

I hope you've enjoyed the tutorial!! Thanks so much for stopping by!!
Have a great day!!
