Wouldn't It Be Loverly?


Greetings! It is Wednesday and time for a new Word Wednesday Challenge over at 365 Cards.  Our word this week is "Sugar."  Now, since I do not personally make cute cards, I was at first stumped. Eventually, I remembered an Artistic Outpost image of a teacup with sugar cubes and was ready to begin!  I stenciled Vintage Photo Distress Ink with one of the new Tim Holtz stencils onto a card front. (I love these new stencils, but since they are tag sized, I am still learning how with some of them to reposition them on larger spaces.)  The images and sentiments are all from Artistic Outpost.  A length of lace, buttons, seam binding and a metal charm complete my card.  What comes to mind for you when you hear the word "sugar?" We hope you will join us at 365 Cards!  Take care, Yvonne

This is gorgeous, Yvonne! I love how you have combined the stencil and stamps. I have that stamp, as yet uninked - you have inspired me to ink it up!

Hi Yvonne, you are really the Queen of Vintage cards! This is so gorgeous, the use of these stencils with the vintage cup is a really funky combo-I do envy your ability to make vintage look so easy!
