Let It Snow

Hi crafters!  Time for another quick Christmas card!  I started by cutting the Holly and Berry Border four times out of coconut white card.  I glued them to a square of white card, overlapping them in the corners.  I added white pearls where all the berries were.  I cut a smaller square of aqua card and then added a white piece cut with the Double Stitched Squares on top of it.  I used the Anita die cut in aqua card as the base, then layered it up with the smaller die from the set cut out of aqua, but backed with white card.  Using the Let It Snow Shadowed sentiment, I cut it out of Ocean card, added a black shadow using the words offset, then glued the sentiment to the middle of the Anita die.  The card was completed with white, aqua and ocean card mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  7" in size.  All for now.

Just Because


Hello bloggers!  I have an older card to share with you today, but I thought it needed it';s day on the blog, don't you?  I started by cutting the Avery die in white card twice.  I cut them in half and set them aside.  Next I cut the Abigail die in white and backed it with black card.  I cut the centre out to create a frame and then added wisteria card to the back.  I glued the Avery die halves behind the Abigail die arranging them so one stuck out further than the other on each side.  I added the entire piece to a larger piece of white card.  I matted it with wisteria card and a thin black mat showing only on the top and bottom edges.  Next I cut the Just Because shadowed sentiment in black and added a white shadow, then glued it into the centre of the card.  I used some small flowers from the Chloe die which I cut in wisteria card and added them around the sentiment.  the card was completed with white, wisteria and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x  9" in size.  All for now Sue x

Ring Quilt

Hi bloggers!  I have a card without a sentiment to share today.  I don't do that very often, but I just really liked the design as it was.  I started by cutting the Ring Quilt out of white card.  I added it to another piece of white card with a sticky adhesive sheets added to it.  I cut the Ring Quilt again out of Powder Pink, Old Rose and Antique Silver card, keeping all the fall away pieces.  I paper pieced them back into the original design.  After they were all in place, I cut the die again three more times out of white card.  I nipped away the edge on all of them, then offset them over the original to create a sort of star pattern in the centre of the card.  I added it to a couple of Double Stitched Square mats to give it a nice edge, then completed the card with white, pink and silver mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8" x  8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

On Your Special Day

Hello crafters!  How about a silver and white wedding card/anniversary card?  I started by embossing a piece of coconut white card with the Heart Strings embossing folder to add texture to the background.  I matted it with silver card then added it to a larger piece of white card with room at the top and bottom of the card.I cut the Wedding Bell border die out of antique silver card and added it to the top of the card with foam mounting pieces.  Using the Wedding Arches and Column die set, I cut it in white and created an arch, adding a silver heart to the top centre.  I cut the wedding couple in white and added them under the arch with foam.  I used the On Your Special Day sentiment which I cut in antique silver and black card.  I used the black as a shadow behind the silver version and glued it to the lower portion of the card.  The card was completed with white and silver mirror card mats and layers.   The finished dimensions are 6 3/4"  x 9 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Happy Birthday


Hello my crafty friends!  Today's offering is a super simple one but I love the results!  I started with a piece of coconut white card and embossed it with the Rose bed 3D folder for texture.  Next I used the Cosmos Flower Stamp set and stamped a bunch of them in different sizes and used the corresponding Cosmos Flower dies to cut them out.  I used Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink on the tips of the flowers and worked it towards the centres, leaving it a bit stronger there.  I assembled the flowers and attached them in opposite corners.  I stamped the leaves from the stamp set and cut them out with the matching dies from the Cosmos Flower set.  I used Forest Moss Distress Oxide ink on them and glued them around the flowers in the corners.  Next I cut the Noble Happy Birthday die out of Wisteria and black card.  I used Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink again on the top ad bottom edges of the Happy Birthday, then used the black die cut as a shadow behind the letters.  I glued it in the centre of the card.  The card was completed with white, wisteria and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x
