Thanks

Hi bloggers!  This is probably the most simple card I have ever done, but I just wanted to show off this stunning background!  I made this shortly after returning from CHA in  January.  I was watching a demo by Tim Holtz and saw a sample tag he had done laying on his table.  He explained that he used the new Silver Sparkle alcohol ink card and dripped alcohol inks from the top edge so they ran down the card.  I loved the way it looked so I had a go on my own.  I used Sunshine Yellow and Raspberry alcohol inks over the Silver Sparkle card and this was the result.  I used the top layer die of the Alice set to die cut it and saved all the little squares.  I die cut the Alice again in white and added it to a sticky adhesive sheet and paper pieced all the squares back into it.  I cut the Thanks die in black and added it to a white shadow and glued it onto the card.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 5 1/2"  x 5 1/2" in size.   All for now Sue x

You Are The Best

Hi bloggers!  I always love it when I can use a single die to create an entire card, don't you!  This card is all about the Roselyn die set!  I started by cutting four of the top layer of the Roselyn die with one of the centres included out of coconut white card.  I glued them to another square of white card to create the background.  Next I cut two more of the Roselyn die in white using just the top layer of the die.  I selected a piece of Pixie Powdered background card that I had in my stash pile and cut both of the centre dies from it. The pixie powder colours were Lava Red, Burnt Orange and Straw Yellow.  I added a black card base to both of them.  I crisscrossed them and added them with foam to the centre of the card.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the centre of the Roselyn die.  I cut three small flowers from the Blossom Patch set out of a left over piece of the pixie powdered piece used for the middle layers and added them around the sentiment with pearl centres.  I completed the card with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8" x  8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

All The Best

Hi crafters!  I started with a piece of
coconut white card and used the Anna die to cut into the background.  I used the top layer die to cut into the upper right and lower left corners.  There is considerable over cut in the middle where they over lap, in case you decide to make this one.  I used the inside smaller die from the Anna set to cut into the opposite corners so the background was completely die cut.  I cut a self adhesive sticky sheet and attached it to another piece of coconut white card then placed my background over it and added Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz to the exposed adhesive areas for a bit of blink to the background.  I cut one more of the top layer of the Anna die in white.  From my pile of acetate backed crystal tint backgrounds using the caught in crystal technique, I found one done in green, blue and purple and die cut the outer Anna shape then added it to the die cut.  I added foam to the back and seated it on the background in a diamond orientation.  I had a small piece left so I die cut the All The Best sentiment out of it, then added a black shadow and added it to the white shadow backing.  I cut a Double Stitched Circle to add it to then glued it into the centre of the Anna die.  White on white mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  7" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Quad Border Card



Hi crafters!   Today's video uses the curved Matilda Border in that yummy custard yellow card for a lovely result!  You can cut the triple layer dies into the card and layer them or out of the card and layer them for more versatility!










The finished dimensions are 7 1/4"  x  9 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

You Are Too Kind

Hello crafters!  I started the card with a piece of coconut white card.  I used the Camilla decorative die to cut into the centre of the card and added a black card backing to it.  Next I cut three Skylar dies and cut them all in half.  I glued  four of the pieces on to the background with the points going into the corners.  I used the Double Stitched Ovals and made a large frame.  While the die cut was still in the die, I inked it with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink.  I removed it and added the remaining two tips of the Skylar die to the sides and added mounting foam to the back then attached it to the background. It covered the cut ends of the Skylar dies.  I cut another Camilla die out of the card and  added it on to the centre of the framed area, vertically across the horizontal Camilla die.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out and added it with foam to the middle.  I used the Blossom Patch Flowers cut out of Powder Pink card to add a spray of flowers across the centre.  The card was completed with white, Ocean and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now Sue x
