Sailboat Stained Glass

Good Sunday morning all!  A simple sailboat stained glass card for the day.  I started this card by cutting the Sailboat Stained Glass out of black card.  I attached it to a piece of white card with a sticky adhesive sheet on it.  Next I cut the die in red, blue, light blue, yellow, brown and white.  I used the fall away pieces of each of the different colours to paper piece them back into place to fill in the die.  Next I used spray glue over the top and glittered it to add a softer look.  Using the Double Stitched Rectangles, I cut a multi layered frame using Cobalt blue card for the base frame and white for the top frame.  I added them with foam to frame the card.  The card was then completed with white, blue and red mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6" x  7 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Just Wanted To Say

Hello there my crafty friends!  Today's card shows you how to use the Flora die in a different sort of way!  I started by embossing a piece of coconut white card that I cut on the diagonal using the Heart Scrolls embossing folder.  I added mounting foam to the backs of both pieces and added it to a piece of Cobalt Blue card, leaving a two inch gap between the diagonal pieces.  Next I cut two of the Flora dies in white and started to nip off the floral fingers coming out from the centre.  I reassembled them into the diagonal gap I left open and added 3mm white pearls to the centres of all the flowers.  I cut both the Just Wanted To Say and the Happy Birthday Mini Expressions in Cobalt blue several times, then stacked them, added a black shadow and glued them to the top and bottom portions of the card.  Cobalt Blue and Coconut White card mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x  8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Birthday Wishes

Hi crafters!  Today's simple make started with the letterpressing technique for the background.  I inked the Art Deco Shells embossing folder with Antique Linen Distress Oxide and used a piece of milk card in the folder.  I ran it through the die cutting machine and it transferred the ink to the floor of the embossing folder pattern.  I matted it with black.  Next I stamped the STDF called Spring Nest and cut it out with the matching Sofia die.  I used Distress Markers to colour the image.   I stamped it again and cut out the bird and birds nest by hand.  I coloured them and mounted them on foam over the original stamped image.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the Stitched Flags and put the end through the stamped image frame.  I added the entire piece onto another piece of milk card that I glittered around the edge.  Milk and black  mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  7 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Thank You

Hi bloggers!  I have an in and out buckle card with an up and down background for you!  I started by cutting the Diamond Squares Background out of both white and aqua card.  I backed them both with white card and then cut them into strips.  I added foam backing to the three aqua strips and alternated with white ones that I attached without foam.  Next I cut three of the circular die from the Ivy Garden Background die set; two in white and one in aqua.  I cut a long strip of white card and added forked ends to both with my scissors, then used it to weave the three circular dies together.  I added mounting foam across the back and attached it to the background.  I cut the smaller inner circle as a base for my Thank You Mini Expression sentiment, which I cut out of aqua card.  I added 5mm white flat back pearls to either side of the strip and completed the card with white and aqua mats.  The finished dimensions are 72 x  8 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x
