SCACD Blog Hop

Hej ladies!
It's time for a new fun release over at SCACD. This time I have 2 cards to show you - but first - just in case you get lost. Here's the blog hop order:

ElaineAlex - Kim - Crystal - Danni - Lorraine - Melanie - LoriColleenDianneSuzanne
Anki (me :-)

The first card that I would like to present to you is the one using Sass & Swagger. I decided to also create a card for a very good cause - the Pink Ribbon. So here you have her in all the Pink ;-)

 Distressed the DP with my Tim Holtz distresser. Used 2 different laces from stash. Added tons of pink pearls and of course some flowers and a pink little butterfly.

I used City Skyline for my second card. This time I decided to emboss. That was actually ages ago since I did that - but now I remember how fun that is. Will have to create more - especially for X-mas cards. This card I call: Coming home for.... maybe X-mas, New Year or any other special occasion.

I stamped the image with silver ink and then sprinkled the white embossing powder over before heating it up with my embossing gun. Added ribbon from stash, some frost blue pearls and flowers.

Classic Retro's and Street View's can be found * HERE * and for our International friends, you can find them at Quixotic Paperie * HERE *

Hope you like them. Looking fwd to hear from you before you pop over to the store to get your hands on these.

Kramis - Anki

Gorgeous cards Anki!! I also embossed mine in white and but made another one for the hop!!! PHEW! I love both of them!

Alex said...

Beautiful and both very different! The pink and white with the shabby look is lovely and what a great cause. The city scene embossed and striking on the black is great. I love the way you did the papers behind it and the flowers to really set it off.

Kim said...

Oh my jaw just dropped...these are absolutely AMAZING Anki! LOVE the pink "for the cause" card...Sass looks amazing with the pink ribbon! My mommy-in-law is a breast cancer survivor so the pink ribbon cause is very near and dear to me! You did a fabulous job with this card! LOVE IT! And the skyline card is fabulous...I so want to go and do a white embossing of this stamp now! You have totally inspired me! Hope you have a fabulous weekend hun!
Luv & Hugs~ Kim
