Vintage / Fancy Folds / Hot Metal Challenges

Hello Fellow Bloggers

Firstly I would also like to thank my latest followers, it means a lot to me to have you join me in my crafting exploits.  I would also like to say Happy Canada Day to any fellow Canadians out there, hope you are enjoying your day.

I have two cards today, each for a different challenge or two.

CARD 1 - the criteria for this entry is twofold, one to create a Vintage card with the challenge being sponsored by the wonderful Hels Sheridan (http://scrapology-adventuresinscrapbooking.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/june-card-challenge-vintage.html).

The criteria for the second challenge using the same card is Challenge 66 - Fancy Folds which can be found over at (http://fussyandfancychallenge.blogspot.co.uk/) and this is my card:

The card is a double side stepper card, I have used a vintage lady from my picture store and printed it out onto matt photo paper.  I picked up the colour in her dress and used Peacock Feathers DI to colour the fancy wings and the flourishes.  I also coloured the inside of the card to match, added some paper to the side steps and a butterfly and pearls to match.  I distressed the edges of the whole card with Tea Die DI to give the card a more vintage feel.  The flowers on the front are also from my stash.

CARD 2 - the criteria for this card is Hot Metal (http://pennybfriendssaturdaychallenge.blogspot.co.uk/) for Challenge Week 208.

I think I have taken the hot metal part quite literally as you can see here:


The flower is made using Ranger foil tape sheets, which I attached to some thick white card, cut the flower using Tim Holtz tattered flower die and then embossed it with the TH metal look embossing folder.  I coloured the flower and stem with alcohol inks.  The central flower and gem are from my stash.  I matted and layered the card with red mirri card and polkadot paper from my stash.  The stamp is Penny Black's large Happy Birthday stamp.  It is quite a large stamp and really needs a large card and this one is 8 inches square.
 
Two quite different cards, I enjoyed making them both.

If you do visit I hope you will leave me a comment, I love to read them and I always try to repay the compliment.  Hope you have a lovely day.  Crafty hugs, Anne x

  8. My goodness, Anne, that is really something to create too multi-dimensional cards of two completely different styles! And best of all, each one is a fantastic execution of that style - love, love! (The first one looks like it could be a frame on a dresser, not a card!)

  22. Thankyou so much for following! Maybe I can inspire you to create some layouts! I love to scrap because I am trying to leave something for my lads for when I am gone. You know all those little details that we forget and the things we take for granted. I want them to remember that they had a happy childhood full of special experiences. Thanks for popping by, jenx
