Hello Everyone,

Cool, overcast Monday here, looks a lot like creative day for me, gotta love that 🙂

So I made a card.  Surprise, surprise Christmas Card!!

SANY2924

Yes I do love this style of card, love love love frames.  I have inked an embossing folder and run it through so I have a lovely focal to frame with this.  The frame is made from a rectangle die with the centre cut out, then decorated with my favourite things.  I love that pine branch from Marianne, the flower the birds and the swirl.  And most of all I love that seam binding from SU, I must get some more of this.  Like about all the colours they have 🙂

Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone,

 

Two posts in one day really and you will be wondering what is happening, but I also wanted to share this little gem with you!!

I do love vintage looking cards and all my darkening for that distessed, dimensional look is done with Ranger Distress Ink Walnut Stain.  My stamping is done with it too.

 

I got a new Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page called Wild Flowers and it is gorgeous and when done as a border and then inked it is so pretty.  I only had a small strip of this beautiful Bella Arcadia paper left so needed to do something and how clever to cover the join with ruffled ribbon and bows.

 

The three biggest roses are made by Lauren, but the two little ones are bought (it is so fiddly to make the tiny ones) and all have been inked to give the darkened petal edges.  The leaf is a Accucut Die.

 

Oh and I am finding I love birdies, they are so cute, just being part of the design.  This one is new, a set of three little fellas from Mariannes Dies, they are so cute!!  And this is finished with the ribbon cut for the sentiment (Paper Xtra clear stamp) and some bling.  Gotta love bling!!

 

Hope your day is going great!!

 

Hugs 🙂
