Cardabilities Sketch #99

Hi everyone, Cathy here with a few cards to share using product from the new Winter 2014 Collection from Manor House Creations.

Keep Smiling
Manor House has some gorgeous new Feature Frames in this collection and on this card I have used the Noveau white feature frame as my background, which I altered by misting in pink to blend in with the fussy cut roses cut from the Beautiful You paper range.  I have pulled apart a tea rose into 2 sections to create a flat bloom which can be tucked into your layers and then a little rosebud which I used to top my ribbon bow
MHC Product:  Beautiful You-So You, Fresh and New, Feature Frame - noveau white, tea rose cream
Other Product:  Kaisercraft collectables, Lindy's Stamp Gang mist, pearl centre, satin seam binding

You Make Me Smile
The Thoughts Wandering range of papers has lovely blue tones which I have used as the background for this card.  The Beautiful pp was embossed and I distressed the edges of the Sail Away pp, then randomly brushed over with gesso,  a few flicks of glimmer mist.
One of the new Ornate Frames - elegance black was the base for my layered centre embellishment.  Wooden embellishments are very popular at the moment and Manor House has a range of cute wood elements as part of the Winter Collection.  I have used the wood elements - stamp which I altered to tie in with my colour scheme.  The Thoughts Wandering range has a coordinating diecuts elements sheet.  The cute banner was used in amongst my layers.  To finish off I used a few of the country roses in azure and softened them with a little distressed muslin.

MHC Product:  Thoughts Wandering - Beautiful, Sail Away and Elements diecuts, Ornate Frame-elegance black, Country Roses-azure Wood Elements-stamp,
