Lace in the Window

Hi, it's Holly posting today!  I love making cards with my dies from Classy Cards 'n Such, and I was inspired to play with the window die this time after I bought some of the gorgeous Iridescent White Flowers Lace.  I knew I wanted this lace to act as a "curtain" inside the window, so I had to see how that would look.

I started by cutting out some Kraft cardstock with the Small Madison Window die.  I also cut out the Small Madison Flower Box from Kraft cardstock.  I stamped both pieces with the Wood Texture stamp from Impression Obsession and then sponged a little extra brown ink around the edges.  I then cut a small piece of the Iridescent White Flowers Lace and taped it to the inside of the stamped window die cut.  Isn't that lace gorgeous?

I glued down the window to a white card base and then I cut out some Leaf Clusters and flowers from the Flower Mound die.  I arranged some of the leaves and flowers near the bottom of the window and then I affixed the Small Madison Flower Box die cut with some Joy Foam Pads over the bottom of the window.  I tucked in a few extra leaves and flowers here and there to fill in the flower box.  The last thing I did was stamp the sentiment from the Hello Daisy stamp set (JustRite) below the window.

I love that Iridescent White Flowers Lace and I think it would look gorgeous with any kind of window card.  Can't you just see this with a fall foliage window or a Christmas window?  Ohhhhhh the possibilities!

Close To You

Hello, it's Mindy! I needed a really frilly card for a young friend who loves the color purple, and things with lots of bling!

I just received a wonderful order from Classy Cards 'n Such, and decided to use some of my new products immediately!

I started with a piece of printed paper and cut the Prima Doily #4 - Rose die, and split it two pieces. I used the Tool 'n One to brush all of the little negative pieces out amid the intricate design.

I stamped the little girl image, Fanny's Cuddle clear stamp, and colored her and her puppy in with colored pencils. The image was trimmed with an oval die and mounted on a rectangle of purple card stock.  his element was then added to the center between the doily pieces. 

The sentiment tag was cut from card stock using the A2 Filigree Delight die and two oval dies. The sentiment I included was from the stamp Why Do Birds, only inking part of the stamp. I adhered the sentiment oval with foam tape to give the card dimension.

I completed the card by adding tiny roses, a bit of ribbon, some wire springs, and several pieces of the Eternal Swirl - White Pearls. 

I hope you have enjoyed this card, as much as I enjoyed making it!

Floral Bird Cage

Hi, it's Jenny posting today!  I've been wanting to use this birdcage die for a while but never picked it up.  I started playing with the cage and flowers and then kept going.

I cut the Memory Box Tiffany Frame twice, to create the shadow using black card stock. The Bird Cage and top Tiffany Frame were colored with Antique Bronze Distress Metallic Stain. The distress stain adds a lovely sheen.  I also sponged Distress Ink in Peacock Feathers and Antique Linen, on the outside of the Tiffany Frame to add visual dimension.

The little yellow Spiral Flowers were colored with Distress Ink and the pink ones were colored with Cranberry Zing glimmer mist.  I rolled them with the paper roller from the Paper Blossom Tool Kit.  I love these little flowers, they are perfect for cards!

The frames were created with Spellbinders Labels Eight and Spellbinders dies which can be special ordered from the Classy Cards 'n Such store by emailing Beverly.

Last, I added Baby Rhinestones and Baby Pearls to the frame and centers of the flowers for some extra bling!
