Quote or message

Chris decided on 'Qoute or message' as this weeks theme

Chris' card

A simple stepper for my 'quotation' card this week.
With this quote I decided to make a wedding card.

I've used a Spellbinders DLites die for the window, the cameos are Tim Holtz Movers & Shapers, the wedding rings are a Marianne die and the decorative heart is a Martha Stewart punch.

Kathy's card

This card is a A5 Landscape foiled card from my stash, so thought it would be a lovely base card. I stamped out the sentiment and embossed with gold detail powder, then cut out with my Gold Spellbinders, before doing so l rubbed the die with Perfect Medium, then, after cutting, l once again used Gold detail powder, was very pleased with the finished effect. The lower shape was twisted on its side, the top- vertical. The flowers were made by using Creative Expressions stamps using toning lightweight card, then glittered, these were placed in lower corner with a green scroll underneath. Finished off with some toning perfect pearls.

Sheila's card

I started by cutting 2 shapes for my base card using a grand spellbinders die. The shape for the back of the card I scored at the first notch and stuck this to the other shape matching the cut pattern. I then used a piece of backing paper from my stash and after inking the edges I mounted it onto white card and then silver mirror card.This was then added to my card. I then used a spellbinders die to stamp my message onto, before removing the die I inked the edges. I then stamped my message and created a faux frame with silver mirror card by tracing the outside of the die. I mounted the frame onto my card with foam pads to create dimension. I made a double bow from ribbon and twirled the tails for a more elegant effect. I tehn added peel offs and gems.

Kandis' card

Hello fellow crafters.  After loosing my mojo for a week I had a sudden spurge of inspiration and this was the result.  Gosh glad my mojo is back!
I began with a C5 white pearlescent card, followed by another piece of white pearlescent card which I draw lines around the edges to act as a frame.  I then embossed another piece of white pearlescent card using an A4 embossing folder and distressed it using spiced marmalade.
The spellbinders I have used are as follows: -
-Lace Doily Motifs
-Jewel Flowers & Flourishes
-Scalloped Ovals
-Classic Large Ovals.
My quote has been stamped using clear embossing ink and embossed using Cosmic Shimmer Olympic Gold Lustre embossing powder.  The sentiment is from Sheena Douglas A Little it Sketchy range - Rain.
Thanks for joining us.  Take care.
