Hello Everyone,


Gorgeous day in paradise today, little cloud cover, no rain and a lovely breeze just moving the leaves on the trees and ferns.


So I made a card over the weekend.



Teddy is so excited about this one he had to show it to you himself.  It was a challenge on the Facebook Creative Craft and Challenge site that I help to keep active and the project needed a tag on it.  So it has a tag in a pocket on it.  The pocket is all of the front of the card, well almost!!




Everything on the card is made from Bazzill Simple Smooth white cardstock which is actually a dirty white and I have used a lot of Glimmer Glaze (Icicle) to put a super shine on some things and then sprinkle fine glitter over it.



There is a border on the left of gathered lace and ribbon with a double bow.  The butterfly at the top left is made from a Marianne Die Corners LR0285 and then embellished with seed beads and wire.


Here you can see the tag at the top and more detail of the background that is all dies.


The hearts and the Petra Label all have embossing in white on them for the sentiments.


I really enjoyed making this card, although it did take me some time to get my mojo happening and I loved the finished product.

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.




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,


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,


I loved the line in the movie that suggest that, Bridget Jones’ Diary, how good was that movie!! So funny, so real, so watchable!!


Well now I have this little MME stamp set with that stamp and I love it, it is perfect, it is small enough, it is printed just right and it fits so many of my dies!!!! Wins all around on that one.


So I made a card!!




And did you get a look at that embossing of my die, yes girls I am doing it right for once, finally got over my laziness at this job and got myself a Spellbinders rubber mat that works so well, I had been using the Sizzix black one and really it is for the texture plates, not for embossing dies.  Well it is a good job I decided to learn from my mistakes (egad!) and try another way, a proven way, DUH!!




My usual DTP inking, ruffled ribbon, bows, flowers from MFT dies, butterfly from Memory Box Darla and Vivienne, and bees stamped from MME.  OH HO OH and the brand new border punch from Martha Stewart Wild Flowers and I am just wild about it.


Thanks for calling in!!


Hugs 🙂
