Hello Everyone,

 

Made a card just for you….

 

SANY3829

 

This is a card in 5″ x 5″ with a panel on the front, I have made a frame from a Spellbinders set of square dies and used the cut out square in the middle to run through an embossing folder with distress ink, then heat embossing it with clear embossing powder.  All pieces are edged with the same ink.

 

Dies used are Sizzix Bigz Elegant Flourishes, Spellbinders Foliage, MFT flower die.  The brads have been heated and dipped in embossing powder and re-dipped and heated.  Love matching things by altering them.  The Sentiment is from Wild Rose Studio clear stamps Everyday Sentiments.  My special ribbon treatment and bow.

 

Hope you like it.

 

Hugs

Hello Everyone!!

 

I am so looking forward to the new Minion Movie, it is out and in movie theatres, so I wonder how long before Netflix or Foxtel will have it.  I love those little blue and yellow fellows and can’t wait to see it.

 

So I made you a card, no no nothing to do with Minions though.

This is another one of these wonderful Wedding Cards, large size 6″x6″ in a gate fold style.  The 2 front panels are covered with designer paper and then I have used Martha Stewart Border Punch to make paper lace to lay on the front of the card.  Makes it so very pretty.

 

I have used the Sizzix Bigz Die Caged Bird for the birdcage for the centre focal of the card.  Ribbon runs around the card to tie it closed.  Decorated with loads of roses and butterflies as well as another ribbon.  On this one, there is room to put either Mr & Mrs or the names of the bride and groom inside the birdcage.  This card also has a special box to keep it in.

 

Hope you like it.

 

Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone!!

Cold winter’s day here, my fingers are still frozen at 1pm, don’t think it will get warmer for me.

so I made a card for you.

Oh this one is a cute one, made for a Challenge on Facebook ACCC, Using a Stencil, I have almost covered the stencil up!!

Yes a 5″ x 5″ card with a designer paper that I have stitched around.  Then I have inked the edges of the card and the paper, and then used an open chicken wire stencil to get hexagonal blobs and spatter on my card with texture paste.  Lace and a thin strip of the patterned paper, a sentiment and a lovely garland of roses and foliage, I have spiralled the wires on the roses to add another texture.

Hope you like it!!

Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone,

Have you been getting crafty?  I hope so, for some reason my mojo has come back to me, it was missing for several months and I could not get the motivation to make anything and now I am just pumping the cards out of my craft room 🙂

So here is a card for you 🙂

SANY3824

Well this one is for another Challenge on the ACCC site on Facebook, and I am really pleased with it.

This one was to use Newspaper or print paper, so I made my flowers with dictionary pages.  It is a 5″x5″ card, with a panel on front that I have used a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page set to give a lacy border.  Designer paper on the front of that, my favourite ribbon treatment and bow.  The die cut flowers are from Heartfelt Creations with the addition of some roses that I have curled the stems of.  To finish I have used a Chipboard sentiment from A2Z Scraplets, it is just wonderful, thick cut and so easy just to paint this one 🙂

Hope you like it.

Hugs 🙂

Hello Everybody!!!

Oh my it is getting into Winter and it is brrrr cold inside and out.  Today is the Winter Solstice so that means that at least the days will be growing longer even if the temperature keeps dropping for a while.

So with this in mind I made a card to share with you all.

SANY3733

My favourite size card, in square 5 inch. Background is patterned paper with just a touch of Ranger Distress Ink in Vintage Photo around the edge.  Doily from Cheery Lynn is French Pastry.  Chipboard is the new thick cut, 1.8mm from A2Z Scraplets (my favourite chippie in the world) painted white and while wet spritzed with Glimmer Mist Black Cherry.  When dry the chipboard is covered fairly thickly with Glossy Accents.

Finished with a bow made from mesh ribbon and a handmade flower using a Carl Daisy Punch.   Stmped sentiment on the doily is from Stamp-It Australia.  Then a few bling rhinestones are added.

Hope you like it!!

Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone!!

Oh you know every time I post I tell myself that I will post the next day too, and guess what?  It just never happens.

Well I am posting today!!

SANY3676

This is a card where I have used 3 types of patterned paper, it is so rare that I do that, I am not comfortable with mixing and matching patterns.  There are some people who have a real gift for it and I love the 6×6 paper pads of coordinating papers available, this is the only way I can do this.  And did you see, a picture from the papers saves me the stamp and colour routine.  I believe I have all colouring methods known to man in my craft room and the only ones I can even passably use are the watercolours, so hopeless with colour this girl.  No wonder I only wanted to draw in graphite, grey graphite at that!!

Well I hope you like it, I personally love the stitching and am really almost on first name terms with my sewing machine.

Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone!!

This morning I am Skyping with my friend Lisa and she is tired and we are not in a very creative mood so we did the Pinterest thing and displayed all our latest finds and then she needed to do some fact checking and I decided it was time to blog something I did ages ago with her in mind.  She loves bees so I know she will love this one 🙂

This card was made for one of the challenges in a Midnight Madness on Aussie Crafts Creations and Challenges where I admin and have fun  on Facebook.  Bit of layering, punching, die cutting and flowers, ribbon, blows bling and of course the bee 🙂

Hope you like it, easy card, just for fun.

Hugs 🙂
