Sew, a Needle Pulling Thread...

Hello!

Another great challenge from Papertake Weekly and this week it's 'The Sound of Music', you can either use the musical for inspiration or make a general music themed card. I've chosen to use the song Do-Re-Me from the musical and the line 'Sew, a needle pulling thread'. I've had a few sewing themed stamps for a while but never had the chance to really use them so this challenge was perfect!

So here's the card I made:


The stamps are from the Sewing Room Set from Visible Image stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and I ran both the base card and the stamped card through the Grand Calibur in a Darice Honeycomb Background embossing folder for a bit of a 'patchwork' background.


Usually when I try simple cards they end up looking quite boring but this one has worked really well!

Anywho, hope you like it!

Tiddly Inks Book/Movie Challenge

Hello!

A quick post today for a new challenge I've decided to do over at Tiddly Inks. I've had a few of their gorgeous digi stamps for a while but didn't have a printer for ages and only managed to set my new one up a few weeks ago!

Their latest challenge it Inspiration from a Book or Movie. As soon as I saw the challenge I had to use their fantastic digi stamp 'As You Wish' inspired by the book and film, The Princess Bride. 

So here's what I did:


The backing papers are Lili of the Valley's Country Gent and the flowers on the card are white heather, white sweetheart blossoms and red cherry blossoms.


I coloured Westley and Buttercup with Burnt Sienna, Cinnamon, Tan, Blush,Vanilla, Mustard, Pastel Beige, Ruby and Red. I coloured the arch, another Tiddly Inks digi stamp called 'Amanda's Arch', with Tan, Ruby, Mustard, Cool Aqua, Amethyst and Rose Pink and went around the edges of the designs with Cool Grey 1.


The sentiment was printed using the font 'Cardinal' from dafont.com. The line is is one of my favourite's in the film, spoken by The Impressive Clergyman in the wedding scene:


He He! =)

Anywho, hope you like it!
