Leather and Lace

Hello folks.  We have another challenge at One Stitch At A Time so how about popping over to see all the fabulous creations by the design team.  Before I go any further I would just like to say a big thank you to all the new followers who have joined me over the past few weeks, I hope you are enjoying the creations that find their way from my craft room to my blog <g>.  Without further ado, onto this weeks challenge:-

Challenge #166

Theme ' Anything Goes'

The prize this week for the winner who uses a StitchyBear product is all the DT images used in challenge 164.  Runner up who does not use a StitchyBear product will win $3 to spend in the StitchyBear Digitlal Outlet.  Don't forget, if you spend $3 or more then you also get the free weekly digi, what a brilliant offer.

This week I had to choose a digi  for Ali and I to use from Delicious Doodles and I had my eye on this digi before hand and was over the moon to find out I did not have long before I got to create with it.  The digi is called 'Leather and Lace' by Teri of Delicious Doodles.  Isn't it awesome :)

In keeping with the name of the digi I designed a background paper to resemble rough leather, added black lace and gold netting and finally cut up some leather I had into strips to make the border on the left hand side.  The only thing I am disappointed with here is my camera has washed out all the shading of the woman's face.

  • White Linen card from Craft Creations
  •  Digi - 'Leather and Lace' by Teri of Delicious Doodles
  • Backing paper by me
  • Mount cut by me and cut on my Black Cat
  • Lace, leather, Stickles, gold embellishments and gold Happy Birthday peel off sticker from my stash.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:-


  1. Hi Mimi! So we're on the Feline Playful and OSAAT teams together now? Too cool! Thanks for your lovely comment on card for this week; the pearls are actually liquid pearls, from a pen. So much easier than adhesive, I like the uneven finished product. I highly recommend trying one! Love your card -- all the gorgeous textures & details. Gorgeous coloring too! Bet, CG

  2. Like the variety of textures you used on your card. Especially like the cut strips of leather.

  3. Oh yes, this is a nice card - wish I could run my hands over it because I'm sure it will feel as lovely as it looks. I struggled to decide which was the leather and which the backing paper - well, of course you are well aware of my left/right difficulty :-) xxxxxxx

  4. She is such a poser - reminds me of my older grandgirls! They all take photos of themselves and put them up in webland - posing just like this! LOL A great card and I absolutely love the gold trims. Thanks for joining us at Crafting with Dragonflies for our latest challenge - One for the Girls! Susan (DT)
