Crafter's Companion - Marianne Design

Tomorrow Sunday 16th June at 12 noon on Create and Craft TV Leann Chivers from Crafter's Companion will be bringing you some fabulous products from Marianne Design.
Today I am showcasing a couple of samples I made for the shows. This first piece has a real vintage feel to it which I thought worked really well with the vintage images from Marianne. I used the Elegant Frame Embossalicious Embossing Folder to create a frame around my focal image and then sanded the card to reveal the core.
I used Tim Holtz Core'dinations Kraft Core Shattered collection, I love this card. I have used the Romantic Vintage - Best Wishes image from Marianne stamped onto Kraft card with black Archival Ink and I have added a touch of dimension on the sentiment and added a bow charm to her her.
The gorgeous lace is also from Marianne Deisgn, perfect for the vintage image. I have also added some natural twine and another of those fabulous charms for dimension.
The ornate die cut piece in the background is from Marianne Design, Vintage Ornaments and adds further interest to my card. To complete, I have added Best Wishes to the bottom of my card, adding two pearls to either side of the sentiment.
My next sample showcases the fabulous Romantic Vintage - Dreaming image stamped onto a piece of calico and machine stitched around the edges.
I used the Vintage 2 Ornaments to add die cut pieces to the top and bottom of my focal image and added two small roses for definition.
A large bow has been added along with CHERISH and a bow charm for added interest.
The background has been embossed with the Floral Vine Embossalicious Embossing Folder and once again sanded to reveal the core.

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy the shows tomorrow. Tracy x x

Gorgeous cards! Love the bow and embellishments which are so pretty on your first card. The sentiment on the fabric on your second card with the lovely bright hues is gorgeous!

Wow Tracy these are stunning, both of them. I love the second one and how you have stamped onto calico and stitched around it, it looks so effective. I'm loving the bow on the first one. Hugs Debbie R xx
