At Joan's Gardens Challenge Week #19

This week the challenge is:

Use a Wedding Theme
Use some kind of flourish
Pearls or Rhinestones for embellishments
Use only Black and White 

This top-fold card is made using Cheery Lynn French Lattice Small frame (available at At Joan's Gardens) over black and white patterned paper.  The digital stamp with the Japanese Kanji symbol for "Love" is from Floppy Latte Designs surrounded by a Just Right circular stamp "On This Day I will Marry."  Roses and netting complete the card.

For thiswedding card I used Spellbinders Labels 20, and created a top-fold shape-card (the photo of the card was taken over white paper, but this card is not on a white cardbase.)  The base paper has a floral and silver print black on white,  Cheery Lynn Designs Lace Corners A (B161)  have rhinestones in the matching flower centers near the paper rose, bordered with delicate white feathers.  I used a Clear Star jelly roll pen to embellish the edges of the die cuts and the flower. The black ribbon edge stitched in white satin thread has a center row of rhinestones. And the black layer is embossed with Tim Holtz Alterations "texture fades" (Retro Cirque Set). The inside holds the sentiment attributed to the Apaches, a Wedding Blessing, with a greeting to a special young couple, to be married this month. The metal hearts are by Wilton (party favors in bridal at Walmart).

  ~Apache Wedding Blessing~
Now you will feel no rain
For each of you will be shelter to the other.
Now each of you will feel no cold
For each of you will be warmth to the other.
Now there is no loneliness for you
For each of you will be companion to the other.
Now you are two persons
But there is one life before you.
Go now to your dwelling place to enter into the days of your togetherness
And may your days be good and long upon the earth.

Not Square

I used a Stampin Up top note die on folded paper to create this shaped card.  The beautiful embossing (and cutting) folder I used was by Marianne Creations--(Swirls #DS907). The flower and leaves are also cut from a die by Marianne Designs  (LR105) The flower center is a series of stamen cuts wrapped around a pearl from Cheery Lynn dies found in "Build a Flower 1". Friends stamp is the tiny tags jewelery punch and sentiments by Stampin UP.  All these dies are available at Joan's Garden's Store

At Joan's Gardens Blog Hop

Welcome to Priss' Pixels and Paper Projects and my part of the Joan's Gardens Blog Hop! We're so excited to introduce to you to a  new series of  Flower dies from Cheery Lynn called "Build A Flower #1".  These dies are Cheery Lynn exclusive flower building dies that Selma helped design; they include flower petals, flower bases, leaves, and different types of stamens.   Cheery Lynn will be releasing more "Build A Flower" sets in the future to build a wide variety of flowers.  All Cheery Lynn dies can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.

Cheery Lynn Designs is the sponsor of this blog hop,  and has donated a fantastic prize package with a value of $100.  Would you like to win this amazing $100 gift package from Cheery Lynn that you see below?   

All you have to do is be a subscriber to both Joan and Selma’s blogs and visit each blog in this hop, including Joan and Selma's blogs, and leave a comment.  A winner will be selected to win the $100 prize package from comments left on one of the blogs - it will be a random selection. So hop along this blog train and have fun with Build A Flower #1 just released  from Cheery Lynn today.

 Wait, Don't go! Check out my cards below (you can see them in more detail if you click on each picture) Don't forget to leave me a comment and tell me which one of my cards caught your eye.  GOOD LUCK!

This one is with Cheery Lynn "Sophia's Heart" just fantastic doily.  Cuttlebug embossing (dotted Swiss) is blocked into four squares in the background. The greenery is Tropical Flourish by Cheery Lynn.
 Build a Flower#1 Cheery Lynn dies creates the rich Clematis flower where I used  pearl-glimmermisted  paper and glass beads centers.  Polka Dotted orange and the purple paper is by SU.

This card shares Stampin UP stamped sentiment found in Language of Friendship #122752, and Cheery Lynn Build A Flower #1 dies.  The quotation by Thoreau reads: "The Language of Friendship is not words but meanings."  The flower center buds are the delicate small stamens wrapped around 10mm beads, This one is accented with with Tropical Flourish and Marianne Creatable LR0156 die cuts and more pearl wrapped buds.  The Hand-stitched border is threaded with DMC Floss (316) and the punch around the page I used for that is by Martha Stewart with lots of little holes to stitch into!  This is all mounted on corner punched parchment over ribbon accented white cardbase.

This delicate card does not use the petals of the Build A flower 1, just stamen sets. The delicate butterflies are also  Cheery Lynn Exotic Butterfly DL112 dies.  The Pink Lace ribbon Ribbon is by May Art.  And I used Spellbinders Label 20, and BuildaFlower1 for this. The patterned word art paper was a scrap.
Stamped sentiment from Stampin Up Butterfly Prints reads: "Love is like a butterfly--it goes where it pleases and pleases where it goes."

And then I went entirely crazy! This card uses only the spikes with pearl accents in the middle. After I diecut the spikey centers, I cut a circle around the area where the spikes were, and then rolled back the little triangles with a quilling tool.  I put the spikes back into the "frame":; I glued the center one to glitter paper, punched a hole in that the mat the same size as the circle and mounted the whole thing in an acrylic "treat cup" (Stampin Up)  The pastel striped paper has glittered edges along each stripe and a half circle embossed punch punched twice and stamped 'For You', finished this one.  They look like little wheels.  How cute these would be as a flower cart's wheel.  Cheery Lynn Build a Flower #1 and some ribbon made this what you see.

AT Joan's Gardens Challenge Week #17

  • Stamp a background
  • Do a Vintage Card
  • Use Olive and Tan Colors - and any accent color
  • Use some kind of feathers 

    I used a digital stamp for the background created by Catherine at Butterflies and Bluebells called Vintage Brushes, the lace is by Stampin Up, and a punched butterfly (punched from a doily). The Lace Corner accent is Deco A by Cheery Lynn.
    The verse says:  "Be a Girl with a Mind, A Woman with an Attitude, and a Lady with Class."  I made the background paper in Photoshop.
