Anniversary Card

Moved the card so I could remember all that I used and the darn bow fell off again :p will be off to find more glue at least anniverary isn't until Saturday!

I used a vintage playing card image from Dover Sampler and colored it in with a red watercolor pencil. Added a red heart button over one of the hearts on the card. I used my Leave it to Weaver Fiskars Border punch and then used red Kaiser Craft Ribbon. I made a bow with the ribbon and some silver twine stuff from my stash. I learned how to make the bow from a Fiskars Tutorial on NSD. The black cardstock I pulled from stash and embossed with Flur De Lis cuttlebug folder and filed down. The metal hearts I colored with cranberry alchol ink and attatched to the black cardstock and hten to the card.

Magical Crafts Fortnightly challenge - use metal. I used the hearts.

Totally Paper Crafts - use monochrome I used red with white and black.

City Crafter Blogspot - use ribbons and bows. I wove my ribbon and made a bow if it would stay on :p

Tuesday Tagger - use texture. I feel my embossing w/filing and ribbon add texture to the card. They reminded me they had a prize from Tanda Stamps. I hadn't heard of them before but these stamps look awesome!

Little Red Wagon - alter an embelishment. I altered the metal with alcohol inks.

Whoopsy Daisy Challenge - ribbons and bows.

ABC Challenge - V is for Vintage. I used an vintage playing card image from Dover Sampler.

HB card

A friend of mine gave me the leftover of her Treasured Scrapbooking August 2009 card kit and i was able to make this card from the instructions.
The papers used from the kit are Pink Paislee Irresistible and Entrhralling. I used some Bazill Orange cardstock (not sure of the exact name), blue cardstock that I embossed with Distress Stripes in my cuttlebug. I punched with my Fiskars Scallop Boarder. The border on top is FunTape by kikiArt and I tried punching holes to make it look like stitching but you can't see it too well in the picture. I also did some Orange Marmalade Distress Stickle dots. I didn't have the border punch they used so I added some yarn! Finally getting that yarn on projects ;)

For Creative Inspirations challenge I stitched and did French Knots on the flower.
Off The Wall Craftiness for the color palate.
Everything but the Kitchen Sink challenge I used Mango nailpolish on the grungeboard H & B.
