Hello Everyone,

I have been quiet for the last little while, but I have been creating all sorts of cards and other things.  So I thought I might show you  what I have been up to.

A 5×5 inch card with Punch Around the Page Vintage Lace, a tag that has been embossed and some of my favourite MFT flowers.  A couple of sentiments and an accent made from a coke can, I love using metal.

Hope you like this one 🙂

Hello Everyone,

 

What a wonderful sunshiny day it was today and I spent all day crafting away that is because I love that best 🙂

 

Now the card today is from the Anya range of dies and these are the ones I fell in love with and first started my love affair with Marianne Dies. They are just gorgeous.

 

SANY2486

 

I love that this set is 5 dies and they all layer together to create the perfect depth and texture.  For this card I have used them all, including the flower.  I have also used Anya Leaves and  Chinese rolled rose and the rose bud maker as well.

See how they all layer and how the flowers so suit the layout.  I have framed the little girl in the centre of the square exactly where it is designed to place an image or focal.

Ribbon, lace and more flowers to embellish and really make the card a real thing of beauty.  The theme is carried through to the inside or easel section of the card.

It just finishes it all with all the flowers and leaves, all being inked for an aged finish.

 

Don’t forget for anyone in Australia who is interested in these dies to call into Shelley’s Land on Faceboook and become a member for the best prices around.

 

Hope you like her, thanks for calling in, hope your day is great!!

 

Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone,

 

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mummies out there, to all those mummies in waiting and especially to all those mummies who have lost a child, special hugs to you.  And a special mention to all those children or adults who have lost their mum.  Hope you all had a great day!!!

 

So I made a card with a little party dress for all of you!!!

 

SANY1869

Teddy loves that dress and has put his order in for one just the same for later in the year.  Love you Ted.

 

The top of the dress is cut with the Dress Form Bigz Die from Sizzix and the neckline and armholes are cut with a circle punch.  The skirt is pink lace in layers and the waistband is ribbon to hide the top of the lace 🙂

 

And look at those gorgeous shoes hanging on the doily.  Every dress deserves a lovely pair of heels to go with it!!

 

The little coathanger is made from a papeclip, perfect size with most of the bends already put in place. 🙂

 

Hope you like it, thanks for calling in.

 

Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone,

 

A bit chillier today than it has been, might have been the cloud cover.  I found I needed to put a jacket on, so unlike me!

 

Ok so since I was inside I made a card or two!!  With stunning lace flowers on them.

 

SANY1926

 

SANY1925

 

SANY1924

 

All these cards are basically the same, base card in a side opening A6 card, a piece of scrap designer paper cut into a large ribbon cut and edged with Ranger Distress Ink Vintage Photo, a sentiment from my newest stamp set from Sullivans Paper Xtra Sentiments onto cream cardstock cut into a ribbon shape and inked.  Add some bling and bird or butterfly.

 

How easy is this??

 

Hope you are having a great day!

 

Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone,

 

A beautiful day here with lovely weather and an early morning eclipse that was best seen in WA, a bit far away to go and see that methinks.  I spent time on Skype talking to an inspiring crafter and worked my way through a couple of stumbling blocks.

 

Ms Marsh from Colgate fame passed away today, I remember thos ads so very well, were those ads really so far back to be in black and white?  Am I that old??

 

So I made a card to bring me back to ground.

 

SANY1853

 

I do love it when I can remember to use the negatives of dies (or is it positives?) it makes me feel so thrifty!! So how good is this?  Usually I use white die cuts and then ink them so am left with white scrap in a thinner card that I can punch some bits out of, and so do not feel very wasteful.  But this is awesome.

 

Some flowers handmade by me.  They are cut with EK Success Retro Flower Punches and stamped with a script in black.  When creased, they are inked with Colorbox  Fluid Chalk Creamy Brown.  Love the bling in these, it is like loads of diamond chips (I could be wishing).

 

My butterfly is by EK Success punch, stamped and inked and then coated with Glossy Accents.  Love this Believe stamp from Stamp-It, and the vase is a Sizzlet die, just beautiful.

 

Thanks for calling in.

 

Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone,

 

Do you remember the song “Butterfly Kisses” about the Dad reminiscing about his daughter on her wedding day?   I love that song, it is really such a beautiful song about the bond between the two.  *big sigh.

 

Well I have a stamp by Lucy’s Stamps (distributed by Kaszazz) that has this sentiment and really is one of my favourite stamps.

 

SANY1819

 

This card has it all…. and the collage of clock/foliage/butterfly/running writing is from a Stamp-It A5 unmounted sheet.  Although I think it is available as a woodmount or cling individual.

 

The butterfly is Memory Box Darla Butterfly (solid) and Memory Box Vivienne Butterfly (filligree), so pretty and very much my favourite.

 

So this card has all my favourite things and I made it for a Challenge on National Scrap Day (yes they let cardmakers play now too!!).  It is PINK, has a punch around the page, has dies, has Laurenscraft handmade flower, has DTP inking, has lace, has ruffled ribbon, has bows, has bling…… oh yes, but you know I am developing more favourits all the time, I am getting fond of birdies too!!

 

Thanks for calling in, hope your day is going well for you, mine is a corker!!!

 

Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone,

 

Autumn is here and it is getting much cooler up the valley, but still quite reasonable here, just like late in the season should be!!

 

So I made a card that is a bit like me.  Vintage and getting better with the age of it.

 

SANY1909

 

This is just a stunner that has completely blown poor Ted away.  When I think Vintage, I think lace and pearls, muted tones, burnished edges and roses and other flowers.  I also think of script or running writing and memories to be fondly remembered.

 

So I took a piece of paper I got in a pack recently called Arcadia, it is a little pack about 4 and 1/2 inches by 6 and a 1/2 inches with four sheets of each pattern in it.  Mostly oldish, mostly muted and lots with flowers on them.  Perfect I thought.  And the size makes it perfect for a card, it covers the font and gives a bit left to decorate inside the card.

 

So I put it on a panel for an A6 size card and distessed around the edges with the  Paper Distresser and then inked it with Ranger Distress Ink Antique Linen.  Attached the ribbon along the botttom, inked that too… added the inked leafy flourish (die by Boskut) and then attached some pearl stings.  Then I inked the flowers, and popped them on.

 

The sentiment is by Lucy’s Stamps and is good one.  The label with the sentiment is attached with dimensional foam.  Finished off with sticky back pearls.

 

Hope you like it!!

 

Hugs 🙂

 

Lauren
