Timeless Treasures by Theresa Momber







Hello,

Two cards to share today as I mentioned in an earlier post I'm joining in with Theresa Momber's Blog Hop. We've all made projects with her new and very beautiful set 'Timeless Treasures'.
My first card is a very feminine card, when I saw this set I knew I would be able to incorporate some of my sewing treasures, so with this card I included some pretty lace and a couple of charms.
The base card is Gina K's Pure Luxury base weight in pure white. Some soft pink card was next topped with the dp which is Basic Grey bittersweet vanilla fudge.


The image and sentiment were stamped in Versafine vintage sepia onto GKD pure white layering weight then cut using a Spellbinders die. I left the card in the die and sponged gently around the edge with some soft pink ink. This was then layered onto GKD Chocolate card.

I've used two layers of foam tape to attach first the stamped image and then the pale pink layered section to the card base.
To attach the lace I pressed it onto Vliesofix (just to stabilize it) then using double sided tape attached it to a piece of the dp and cut around the lace . This was then attached to the card and the charms added. I punched some flowers for the corner and added Kaiserscrapbook Chino pearls for the centres and the three remaining corners.

I also decorated the inside of this card using one of the two key stamps that were part of the set. More punched flowers.

The sentiment inside is from Nina's new set .









A MOMENT........


The second card I made for a male and I've tried to make it look vintage using one of the GKD Digital papers 'Peachy Keen' layered onto layering weight card which sits on the base card of Soft Sand. The image was stamped using Versafine Vintage Sepia and cut using a Spellbinders rectangle die. I sponged this image whilst still in the die using the same Vintage Sepia. This was then matted onto some GKD Chocolate card that I punched along one side using a SU spiral binding punch.
I laid a strip of very fine cork across the front of the card then a vertical strip of corrugated card which I sponged to distress. I've wrapped some tea dyed string around this and knotted it . This section was attached to the card using foam tape. The Sentiment, one I really like, was stamped directly onto the digi paper. No decorating inside this card!

This is such a great set, seven sentiments and nine images, available now from Gina K Designs.

Hi Sue,

I am definatly not an expert on the candle thing.. however

1, stamp onto tissue paper and colour using any medim.

2, cut as close to image ans possible and then place on candle.

3, use some wax paper and pull the image tight to the candle and then heat with your heat gun.. long enough to heat the wax from the wax paper so it fuses the tissue paper to the candle but not too long that it melts the candle! and hey presto!!
