Another Book Card

This week the LLC DT are taking us to movies….well after all the Cannes Film Festival is taking place this week.
I’ve made a Book Card, inspired by Sense and Sensibility.sense2Doesn’t this lady look a bit like Emma Thompson?!!! :-) sense5She can be found on Pion Design’s vintage image sheet “Bouquet”.
The paper used on the front here is “Purple Rose” from the gorgeous Alma’s Sewing Room collection, also by Pion Design.
sense6The wide elegant pearl lace is “Lace Princess Grace”,  and the one applied to the top and bottom is “Lace Aurelie”.  Sense1Here’s the inside. This card was made for my friend, who had her birthday beginning of May. sense8The paper is Purple Wallpaper, again from Alma’s, combined with the backside of 1922 from Maja Design’s Vintage Summer Basics. I made a little pocket for two tags, that I stamped sentiments on, but unfortunately I forgot to take pics of them. :-(

Inside the box there’s a dress…the chic kind the women wear in the movie. :-)

sense7The background paper is “Purple Room” from Almas, and the lace all around is “Valerie”.
sense9The dress is hanging on a Maya Road Love Hanger. For the sleeves and parts of the dress I used one of my favourite laces,  “Lace Madeleine”.  I decorated with some rhinestones lace and one also gets a glimpse of her petticoat – glitter tulle trim from Maya Road.
The dress itself was made of “1922” and “Grandma’s Porcelain Cups”. For a belt, I used the pearl trim with beads;  I also decorated with an organza rose and some 2mm pearl trim (also used for the necklace).
sense4For the back I used the sheet “Ladies’ Wardrobe” and a rest piece of “Purple Rose”.
The lace all around is again “Lace Aurelie2, which is quickly climbing the list of my favourite laces.

LLC May Challenge – Ice Cream

While I’m at it, I thought I’d post another card I also made a couple of weeks ago.
This one fits this month’s LLC Challenge, where the theme is ice cream:Sabine5_edited-1_miniNow you might wonder what this card has to do with ice cream… LOL
Well; when I was little, in the Summer when we bought soft serve ice cream, I always ordered it with Tutti Frutti Sprinkles. :-)

Ok, so the Tutti Frutti Sprinkles on my ice cream were usually a lot more colourful than what can be seen on my card, but point is that “Tutti Frutti” is a multitude of colours!
“Tutti frutti is a colorful confection containing various chopped and usually candied fruits, or an artificially created flavouring simulating the combined flavour of many different fruits.
So there you have it; various and different colours, just like my card. 😀
This is a book card made almost entirely with scrap paper pieces from Maja Design’s Sofiero collection.Sabine2_edited-1_miniThe seam binding I dyed especially for this project, and it turned out great, if I may say so. It’s a lovely mix of blue and pink tones.

The inside was decorated with the same lace as on the cover, Lace Isabelle, and I also added the pink Rhinestones Lace. Stamped a Stempelglede sentiment, and frantaged it with Shabby Pink:
Sabine4_edited-1_mini Inside the frame there’s a flower heart resting on the gorgeous Maya Road glitter tulle trim. I wrapped some pearl string around the heart, and the frame was decorated with Lace Valerie:Sabine3_edited-1_miniSome close up pics:
PhotoGrid_1431105063214_miniI sprinkled some Glamour Dust on the butterflies before embossing them with UTEE.
Here’s the back of the book:
Sabine6_edited-1_miniThis is the only paper which isn’t from the Sofiero collection; it’s the backside of “Lovely Weather” from the Coffee in the Arbour collection (but also a scrap piece).

Made to Order

A couple of weeks ago I was asked by my mom to make a card for her cardiac care nurse; only requirement was that it should have at least one heart on it.  I decided to make a criss cross card with a heart border (this is an ancient Magnolia die):
Angelscrisscross1_miniI’ve used my new favourite sheet from Pion Design; it’s called “Pink Fabric” and it’s from the Paris Flea Market collection. The gorgeous angel image from Sagen Vintage Design.
PhotoGrid_1430326836816Also had to use the beautiful lace heart applique, and in the flower display, some of the new adorable pomegranate apples. They’re so cute, I love them!

On the insert I stamped a Stempelglede sentiment I thought was very suitable;
insert_miniAngelscrisscross2_miniThanks for looking; hope you like it. Recipient cried when she got it, so I think I succeded. 😛 signature
