Oranges and Lemons...

Thursday has rolled round again and it's time for a new challenge over on the Cute Card Thursday Blog.  This week our theme is 'Oranges and Lemons' and our prize is sponsored by Whimsy Stamps.

This week I made two cards for my DT project, I've put both into the same pic as I couldn't decide which one to put on the CCT blog to share this week. Which one is your favourite, if you have one ?

I used my new PaperArtsy JOFY stamps on both cards, I've been wanting to get these beauties inky since I got them a couple of weeks ago. 

For the one on the left I used one of my favourite techniques on the base card, dragging a couple of Distress Inks direct to paper, mingling the two colours where they meet.  I stamped the pretty vase and flowers image onto white cardstock then brushed on Squeezed Lemonade DI to colour the background.  Using my Promarker pens I coloured the image and added Glossy Accents on the vase and parts of the flowers. 

I then used a set of Marianne's Craftables dies to cut a background layer from yellow cardstock, the image layer and a lacy layer from orange cardstock to overlay the yellow background.

For the right hand card I added a plain strip of orange cardstock down the centre of the basecard, used a Penny Black dotty die to cut a layer from yellow card.  I then stamped the image onto another piece of yellow card and coloured the image with my Promarker pens and added Glossy Accents on the top half of the flowers.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is from a set by Stampin'Up!

You can see the fabulous creations from the rest of the DT by visiting the CCT Blog, I hope you'll be inspired to submit an entry this week.

Have a great day !

FAB-u-LOUS! Love them both, well done on beating me to using both of those JOFY's too. Oh, I have that Penny Black stamp - isn't it fab, but it's the wrong side of the pond! Lovely colour selection and deeply envious of your collection of dies too matey!

Happy Thursday

What a cool combination. Just right for this weather Wynneth. Love that dragging technique. It's perfect for the gorgeous JOFY's too.
