Always And Forever - Pinque Peacock

Today I am posting a card I made for Pinque Peacock.

I love purple so it was my colour of choice to go with the gold.
This is a 50 Wedding Anniversary card so I knew it had to be special.
I used all shimmer paper in gold, purple and lilac. (Dollar Haven)

I just love the petaloo flowers.. they come in a few different colours also.
I did the always and forever and the 50th on my cricut.
The heart is a brooch from my collection.
The purple I embossed with an embossing folder.

And the inside...
Happy Anniversary from Tie The Know (Cricut)
Gold, Purple and Lilac Shimmer Paper from Dollar Haven.
Petaloo Flowers from Pinque Peacock.
I embossed the gold also.

Have a wonderful Friday!!!

Strip my Gears - Sin City Stamps

Hi! Laura here posting a masculine Halloween card 
or maybe just a I love you card for your guy!
I have used a Gelli Plate for my card.
Gelli Arts are our sponsor this month at Sin City Stamps.
I have to tell you it has been an experience using the Gelli Plate.
One I am not quite comfortable with yet 
but I do love playing with it.
You have to try it! It's fun (but messy) ..Did I say it was fun?
I have played for 3 or 4 days but wasn't happy with anything I made
but did this today. I hope you like it...

For all the details go to the Sin City Stamps blog.

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #74

Today is a beautiful Tuesday here in South Western Ontario.
The sun is shining and its a gorgeous fall day.
I am hoping for this weather clear through till Halloween..
(Wishful thinking, I know but one can hope!!!)

The sketch for today is another fantastic one.
I have to say it again.. the cards just almost make themselves
with these sketches.

I used some gorgeous paper I had in my stash.
The ribbon is also from my stash.

 This gorgeous butterfly is from Miriam's Crafting Supplies.
I love all the metals I get from Miriam.

I challenge you to link up your card for the challenge..

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas

I know this week has mostly been about Christmas but when
I saw the sketch from Cardabilities I knew exactly what I was going to do.
I used Spellbinders pointsettias.. Love these...
I also used MS branch punch (my favorite punch of all time)
I used Aleens Glitter Snow to add dimension. (from Pinque Peacock)

The gingham paper is older paper from CTMH but it also was one of
my favorites. I used alot of old favourites for this card today.

I am entering this card in the following challenges..

Christmas again???

Today again I am posting some Christmas cards I made for Pinque Peacock.
Jessica has some wonderful goodies in the store just for this theme.
You will find burlap buttons 
(that go with any theme but the red ones are perfect for Christmas)
One of my favourite embossing folders 
(at amazing prices)
and another of my favourite products which I didn't use but wish I had

Here is my first card.

(What a great burlap button!!!!)
The wonderful embossing at the bottom of the card
is from the Snowflake and Flourishes embossing folder.
The stamp is from CTMH.
On this card I used Dark Brown ink on the stamp then used
Fired Brick Red distress stamp on parts of the stamp.

My second card is from the same sketch (Mojo Monday #363)

I used the same embossing folder on the bottom but
just turned it around for a slightly different look.
On this card I used Brown Ink and the same distress stain
for the red.. I like the look it gives.
I have distresses all edges and the bottom 
(where the embossing folder was used) for depth.
The sketch is from Mojo Monday #363
I did it slightly different in the two different cards.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Just a reminder.. come and join the Pinque Peacock Challenge
