"Pink & White"

Good Morning Blog friends, it is a beautiful sunny but very frosty morning here, I hope your day is bright and sunny where ever you are.
Thank you so much for all your lovely comments yesterday. I think my little Twinchie will be used on a bigger card sometime in the future.  I did actually think about putting a thicker back on it , adding a brooch pin and using it that way, we will see.    I have made cards for quite a few years now but showing them here has taken me on a whole new journey.   Blogging makes things so much more special.  The one problem I can see is running out of ideas.  Have any of you long time bloggers found that??

The card I have for today I would like to enter this into "In The Pink Challenge" 
 Have you had a look at their Blog??  It really is worth a visit, there are some fantastic cards there.

Base approx 8 x 6  cut from Crafter`s Companion A3 Centura Pearl card
White card pierced round the edge 
Pink Pearl Card Stock 
Darker Pink Pearl card
Pink Pearl card embossed with Tied Together Embossing Folder
I used Cosmic Shimmer Liquid Pearls, this was a brand new bottle which I felt was much thinner than my last one.  The result was.......... the liquid not so controllable!!!   Will give it a good old shake about and have another go later.
Pink ribbon for my Box
Leaves Spellbinder Foliage Die cut in "Pink and White"
Of course it would not be a "Patricia Card" without a rose
The Rose was cut using Spellbinder Blossom Five Die, 160gms white paper and edged with Fired Brick Distress Ink
Sentiment is one I downloaded quite some time ago from Pink Petticoat

That`s it for today
I know I say this every day but I really do appreciate you calling by and leaving such wonderful comments on my work.  It makes it all so much more worth while.

  1. Good Morning Patricia, Your card today is beautiful. I don't think you will run out of ideas, I love the way you have twirled the ribbon. xx Flora

  2. This is stunning Patricia. Love the flower you have made and the embossed background is gorgeous. I keep trying to buy this embossed folder but it is sold out everywhere I look! x

  3. Morning Patricia, Stunning card today, love the pink and white theme, love the twirled ribbon (the lady from Ribbonbox always does that on her cards, it is so beautiful), the 'tied together' embossing folder looks gorgeous, but the rose is absolutely stunning.
    A NOTE FOR SUSAN FLYNN - the tied together is in stock at Country View Crafts for £4.99, if that is any help.
    Have a great day.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  4. Another beautiful card Patricia, so elegant!x

  5. Whoops, wrote my message then just closedit, without clicking Publish. I can see it's going to be one of those days! Fabulous card Patricia. I love everything about it, particularly the Tied Together folder. My favourite by far!!! Love from Christine x

  6. Thanks for the info Patricia looked on e bay but quite dear and bidding still going on. Did another search and found it on Country View Crafts 4.99 free P and P!! Then I saw what Patricia wrote!! Thanks to both Patricias - I am now a happy bunny!! x

  7. Hi Patricia,
    superbly amazing card. Love everything about it, and of course it's pink. Your rose is stunning as usual. Now the the tied together folder everyone seems to be using this, and I can see why it does look so gorgeous. Need to win the lottery so I can buy. lol. I will also be a happy bunny when I can purchase
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  8. Another beautiful card Patricia. Like everybody else I just love this embossing folder - have been looking at it for ages and have now finally given in and bought it.

  9. Absolutely stunning the colours and your gorgeous flower..

    PS I've been strong and not bought the tied together folder. I wonder how long that will last? x

  11. Hi Patricia
    like everyone else i love this embossing folder i really must make some more roses as mine never come out looking like yours so will have to keep practising
    To Rosietoes i wouldnt wait to long if you want tied together embossing folder coz they dont usually do a second run so when these are gone they will not b brought back

  12. This is beautiful and just so stunning! I looked at the go pink challenge and its for a very good cause. I really need to get that tied together embossing folder as it looks so effective on any card and colour. The flower on your card is just so fabulous I just love it! A lovely card. By the way I run out of ideas too with card crafting that's why I started to do jewellery making and scrapbooking and basically making 3D projects too. Have a good day. Hugs sharon xxxx

  13. Hi Patricia, this card is absolutely stunning and your rose is so beautiful:) Good luck with the challenge, Carole Z X

  14. Love your all pink creation especially the pearls and the embossing. And blogland has so much inspiration to offer its highly unlikely one will run out of ideas if one is willing to experiment!!

  15. This is so pretty. Love the embossed background and the beautiful rose and of course I love pink!!

  16. Hi Patricia

    This is a really beautiful card - that flower is just amazing.

    You asked where you can buy your Copics from, there are three places I use which are:

    Artifolk -

    Cult Pens -

    Stamps & Memories -

    Hope this helps.

    thanks for popping by and leaving me some much appreciated comments.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  17. This is beautiful Patricia. Love that you used liquid pearls for the embossed backing, I'll try that one next time, I used up way too many pearls for one card last time I did that!

    PS Your Copic case is on the way, posted on Friday 4 Oct, surface mail I'm afraid so look for it in about a month! It will be an early Christmas gift.

  18. This is gorgeous Patricia, a really beautiful card. Carol x

  19. Hi Patricia, late in posting today, been busy, but it was worth the wait to see this card, absolutely stunning. I just adore the roses. You will have to post a tutorial on how to do them, they are just amazing. Someone mentioned that using the liquid pearls on pearlised card made it run a bit, Julia Watts (Inky Finger Zone)also said this on one of her shows on C&C or her blog one of the two. Sorry I am getting tired. I don't think you will ever run out of ideas not with all the lovely cards you have posted so far.

  20. OMGosh ... this is just stunning! What a beautiful shiney embossed background... and look at those pearls. I'm just in awe. So much yumminess in one card!!

  21. Wowwwww what a stunning card with such a fabulous flower!! And I love the embossing with the pearls too. Altogether gorgeous!

    And in answer to your question about the possibility of running out of ideas.... no..... it will never happen!! I have been blogging for a long time now and am always learning something new.... or see a new technique I want to try...

    Thank you for sharing with us at In The Pink and also for your support... good luck and hope to see you again soon!
