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.

Marianne Creatables LR0241

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 🙂

Hello Everyone,

Well I did get another flower die, you just cannot have too many can you?  I mean, so many flowers, so many shapes, so much to do.

So I made a card or two to celebrate!!


How pretty is this?  Love these two colours together.  Everything is my favvie on this card, the ribbon, the bow, the pearls, the DTP inking, the PATP, doily, leaf (Memory Box Cottage Leaf), butterflies and the flowers.


It even looks fantastic in yellow, now I am not a fan of yellow, but this die makes yellow outstanding.  And those birds of course make the card, I love them (Marianne Creatables Die).

So here they both are. 🙂


I am thinking that these new dies are my new best friends.  And this flower die has taught me something, I can mix and match my flower dies and use some of the dies I have not had much to do with before.  See you are never so good that you cannot learn something.

Hope you like these as much as I do.

Hugs 🙂
