My Love Affair with Pink

Remember, Prima Blog Candy is up for grabs. You can leave a comment on the post ====>HERE.

Yes it’s true . . . I try to deny it but I think it shows. Yes, I try to slip a card in here and a card in there, but it seems like there’s always something on the corner of my desk that’s pink. I surrender!  I’m swamped with quite a few deadlines and I finished up this card that has been waiting in the wings for a while – I was just rationing pink!  This is a sweet set from Flourishes called Fanciful Flourishes, that I’ve been dying to get inky. I love damask, it absolutely makes my heart sing, so it was quite satisfying to work the motif into a background. You know what that means don’t you? No hunting for hours for the right paper, because I made the perfect one myself ;-)

For the romantic shape of the card I used Spellbinders Grand Labels One.  Since the card is predominantly white, I wanted the bottom to seem like eyelet fabric so I punched a border.  Then I added white lace, pearls and ribbon.  I stamped the small sentiment on Spellbinders Floral Doily Accents and threaded my ribbon through to hold it in place.  Lastly, I stamped the damask butterfly (on both sides) and the solid butterfly on another paper then cut them all out with Spellbinders Fanciful Flight.  The flower was already made and I pulled together the pieces for my pearl pick.   

Stamps: Flourishes – Fanciful Flourishes
Paper: K & Company, Expedit White Cardstock
Ink: Colorbox Chalk – Pink Pastel
Accessories: Spellbinders Grand Labels One, Spellbinders Fanciful Flight, Spellbinders Doily Accents, Lace, MS Border Punch, EK Success Border Punch, Hug Snug Seam Binding, Recollections Pearls, Zva Creative Pearls

Thanks for stopping in to see me.  Have a fab day!!

    They say the first step to overcoming an addiction is to admit that you have one :) Personally I hope you don’t overcome this addiction because you do pink so well! This card is absolutely gorgeous! I definitely have to have that eyelet lace punch – I have seen it a couple of times recently and it is calling me loudly!ReplyCancel

    Make no excuses for loving pink, it is a perfectly delicate and feminine color that should be honored and displayed prominently. Looks like you’ve accomplished both of those tasks… :)ReplyCancel

  • Cathe EkasMay 19, 2011 - 11:47 am

    Becca, Your cards are truly works af art. What an amazing talent you have. I also love all of the pink, lace & pearls. I have not stamped or done any paperrafting for 10yrs due to illness.. Things have changed so much.
    I know you can not answer many questions because you are so busy and have so many followers but I do not know what die cut machine to buy. I know you use spellbinder dies and sizzix embossing. Do they all go together. Can I buy the more inexpensive Sizzix and use spellbinder dies?
    If you can’t answer, I’ll understand. God Bless. Have a good day.ReplyCancel
