Hello Everyone,


Pick yourselves up off the floor, yes I am back again today with another post!!! WOW, and to make it all the more special I am posting a card that I have been told is the nicest card I have ever made!!!





Teddy is a bit impressed, and he said that if I keep making cards like this he will go full time modelling for me without a whine in sight.  This is a simple easel card and the base of the card and the front is simply the three pieces of the Marianne Creatables die LR0180.  Each is cut and embosssed and then gently inked around the edges with Ranger Distress Ink Vintage Photo.  So Simple so easy.


The flowers are made with a Mariannes Creatables flower die LR 0145 and the flower die from the Mariannes Craftables CR1202.  These are so easy to put together, no stylus tool needed, just a little roll or pinch here and there and whalla a beautiful flower.


The stamps used are from Kaiser English Rose Collection and the only other embellishment is pearls placed on each scallop of the doily and a small string of pearls to help anchor the easel.


This card is being used as a demonstration of how easy cards are to make from the Marianne range of dies for Shelleys Land.


Thanks for calling in,


Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone,


Oh I am not so sure I am liking this cold weather, hmmm might have to run around the craft room, it is too cold to go outside you know!!


So I made a card, just because I could and I created a new flower with an old die!!




Oh my I am liking the colour of this card, I finally found my Wisteria refill for my Colorbox Fluid Chalk ink, it is so pretty.  I was so excited that I created an easel card 🙂


You can see I am stuck on those Marianne birds at the moment, and I love them in black and this time I have given them mauve eyes, all the better for them to see with.  Lovely green foliage from Sizzlet die Branch.


And a beautiful flourish of bling all over the place.  Hmmm…. I think swirley bling was made for me…. I love it.



So look at this new flower 🙂 It is made with the MFT die Plentiful Petals, but instead of curling the petals down, I have creased along the middle of each petal and creased the petal up.  So dahlia like.  I am wrapped.  Ok so it did take longer, but I don’t mind, I just love making flowers.


Hugs 🙂
