Parisian Boudoir & Sunny Days

Parisian Boudoir

Well I was supposed to be updating yesterday but had a migraine and couldn't  bare to stare at the monitor, so here goes :)

This is card was cut on the cricut, the actual card is made of two mats, the back one scored about 3/4 of an inch down to create a fold and then glued to the front.  Then I cut a pink mat, black mat and then a lighter pink.  Both pink mats were stamped with TM distress ink in picked raspberry with a stamp from the SU Sale-a-bration Bliss stamp set and the edges inked with the same ink.  The smaller black mat was embossed using the Cuttlebug swiss dots folder.

The frame and dress form were cut from the Sophisticated cartridge using the Font 1 function this gives you a framed monogram.  The Back was cut in the dark pink and I also cut a frame in a piece of pink foiled card stock from the DCWV Blackcurrant stack.  The R and parts of the dress form had black diamond stickles added to them and then I applied 2 layers of glossy accents to the R.

Sunny Days

This card was stamped using the simply soft and happiest birthday wishes SU hostess stamp sets.  the background paper is from First Edition Paper J'Adore stack and the spotty paper is from First Edition Paper Boho Chic.  I did a bit of rocking and rolling when I stamped the sentiment lol!  To get this two toned effect ink up your stamp with your lightest colour then take a darker ink pad and roll the edges of the stamp so it just inks the out side edges.  To finish off the card I just added some paper twine and a button, a sunny warm card, just the thing to cheer you up on a cold snowy day :)
