Posts Tagged ‘Quickutz dies’

Hello Everyone,

 

Well warm weather has hit us so early this year and I have been melting!! But the great thing is that while I melt I love being in my craft room with the fan on 🙂

 

So you say, what have you been doing?  Well let me show you.

My friend Kath made a card like this with the little Quickutz flower die and mat and I was blown away because I thought this was an uneven cirlce and was not sure what to do with it.

 

So I used some Graphic 45 paper, the sewing machine, also the flower die and mat and the shamrock shaped flower dies to make a flower for the front.

This is open, and the stamp saying is from Lucy’s Stamps, it is just gorgeous.  See that beautiful flower cut out on the right side?  And I thought it was just a useless die I bought.  🙂

 

Hope you like this.

 

Thanks for calling in.

 

Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone,

 

Did you all get out and vote today?? What about the Pirate Party, I kept seeing reference to it on Facebook and thought it was a joke.  And then there it was on the Senate paper, haha, so funny, never heard of them.  Maybe I am not informed 🙂

 

So after voting today I decided that it would be a craft and movie day, so I have watched Hope Floats with Sandra Bullock, Tara Road with Brenda Fricka, I love her, one of my favourite British Actresses, and now I am watching 8 Seconds, yep all about cowboys, the rodeo kind!! Yeeehaw!!

This is a pretty little card that my friend Kath Vinson shamed me into making.  She also made me realise that the background die and the filligree bits are a flower, DUH I thought it was just 2 uneven  scallop circles, should I be ashamed?

 

Thanks Kath, love your work teaching me how to do things!!

Also set my sewing machine up permanently so I can  sew on my cards whenever I want to.  Oh and look I used those lovely lovely Fleur de Lis rectangles and made a flower with dies from Quickutz, and there is that flower again.  The paper I have used is from Graphic 45, I am finding they are my favourite, love them 🙂

 

Thanks for calling, hope your day is good.

 

Hugs 😉

Hello Everyone,

 

As you know I love love love making flowers from paper and ink.  It is just such a rewarding passtime and I really do like it.

So I have made a video on making a quick simple flower and this technique can be done with any  flower with petals.   You can find it here : Flower Tutorial
