Creative Card Crew: Challenge 31

Welcome to my first project as part of the Creative Card Crew design team! This fortnight's challenge is 'Ribbon', and our sponsor for the challenge is Delicious Doodles

I was spoiled for choice with the lovely images, so I have made 2 cards. The first is an easel card using the lovely Fae

This image is perfect for tweens/teens/young adults, who can be tough to make cards for at the best of times, when cutesy images just don't cut it anymore. What I also liked about Fae, is that it is a great image for beginner colourers and advanced colourers alike, as it is a great image to practice hair and faces.

I've used two lots of ribbon on my card; some ruffled pink ribbon to frame the image, and I have wrapped some silver lacey ribbon around the top panel of my card a few times, to create enough thickness to layer the gorgeous little dress pin on the card.

Inside my card:

The flower on the front is a Prima flower, the papers are Lillibean, cardstock is Bazzill and Stampin' Up! Punches are Martha Stewart and Stampin' Up! Sentiment is Stampin' Up! Dies used are Nestabilities Grand Labels 1.

My second card is the very ethereal Lycaonia, and I went for a more masculine card. I think the addition of the wolves to this image do make the card suitable for men.

Now where is the ribbon? I used ribbon on this card in the corner to create stripes to co-ordinate with the fab My Minds' Eye paper I used. Unfortunately, I didn't have any masculine ribbon that would match, so I've used white ribbon and coloured it in with Stampin' Up! Basic Grey marker, as that is the grey cardstock I've used.
I wanted a greyscale card to really make Lycaonia pop. Here is a close-up:

So pop on over to Creative Card Crew and show us how you use ribbon on your card!

Where Angels Tread...

Today's card is show-casing my first ever Saturated Canary purchase, as well as my first time entering one of their challenges. This week it's "Good vs. Evil", and I have teamed it up with the fab sketch over at Papertake Weekly. For me, it was a no-brainer to make a "good" card, because quite frankly, anyone who deserves an "evil" card, is not getting a card from me ;) Lol

I have used the absolutely gorgeous digi Angels Among Us, and teamed it with the very heavenly Sweet Nothings collection from Kaisercraft, which showcases cherubs, and all things, well, heavenly! I have fussy-cut the image, and adhered her to the page to look like she is sitting on a cloud, with the angel feathers floating down around her.

Close-up of the image:

Inside the card:

Other stamps used are Tim Holtz ticket stamps, and Whimsy ticket stamps. The tickets were cut using the Tim Holtz ticket die, and inked up with Stampin' Up! Early Espresso. I've used Kindy Glitz on the angel feathers, and Stampin' Up! basic pearls in the corners, and the card is made on Stampin' Up! Early Espresso and Marina Mist. The beautiful digi is coloured using Copics (of course!)

Here are the direct links to the challenges I am entering:

Saturated Canary - Challenge 38 "Good vs Evil"
Papertake Weekly - Sketch 76

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you're enjoying yout weekend! Ours has some pretty miserable weather at the moment, so it's lots of crafting in my house ;)
