Sweet Tweet

I have some very exciting news to share with you today ... ... I was asked to be one of the February Guest Designers for Sylvia's Wee Stamps digi designs - and of course I said yes!  So today's DT card for Totally Papercrafts uses one of the Wee digi designs - in fact it's a freebie so if you want it just go to Sylvia's blog and grab it!

This week at Totally Papercrafts we want to see your own hand made embellishments so lots of scope for punching and die-cuting pretty bits and pieces to decorate your paper-crafted project.  We have two sponsors for this challenge, Alota Rubber Stamps and Saturated Canary digi designs - please stop by the challenge blog to read all about the prizes.

Here's my card.  I've coloured the image to match the pretty Spring Chic papers, those 50 sheets are disappearing fast now! I've kept things simple, but sweet I think, and gone for a little die cut lace edging, swirls and flowers.  To get the flowers to match I scribbled the Copic colours onto plain white card before punching and die-cuting my flowers then added the Stardust Stickles to bling things up a little.  The text is stamped with Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid ink and I've also inked the edges of my patterned paper with it too. The Marianne dies on this one are:
corners LR0143
swirl and open flower LR0112
lace edge LR0161

Moving Along With The Times have a punch it out challenge this week so perfect for my card to enter!  My Time To Craft have a things with wings theme so my little love birds should fit that bill!


  1. Beautiful coordination of colours on this delightfully pretty card, Annie! Hugs, Lesley

  2. Love the way your heart has so much dimension through your colouring & doesn't the crispness of the white die-cuts really accent the white flowers in the patterned paper. Amazing with those little embellishing flowers too.

  16. Hi,
    What punch are you using to make the little flowers (not the open flowers) that you have sprinkled around on your card?

    Your cards are all so cute.
