Season's Greetings


Hello crafters!  This is a little different take on the Star of Wonder.  I started by cutting the Stardust Background into a piece of coconut white card.  Next I used the Star Of Wonder and cut an aperture in the centre of it.  I used several different colours of card to back the stardust background with including silver, cobalt and navy blue.  I hand cut them to fit in behind the dotty swirls of the background.  Next I added foam to the back of it to raise it.  I used a small piece of blue pixie powdered card  (Midnight Blue and Peacock Green) that I had in my stash behind the star aperture.  Next I cut a larger piece of cobalt blue card and used the Falling Snow Embossing folder on it.  I added the star aperture to the centre of it with the foam.  I cut the Season's Greetings out of the same pixie powdered piece then added it to a white shadow and attached it below the star.  The card was completed with white and blue mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  8 " in size.  All for now, Sue x

Sending Warm Wishes


Hi crafters!  I started this quilt card by cutting the Star Quilt in white.  I also cut it in Soft Salmon card and Coral card and kept all the fall away pieces from them, including the white one.  Next I added the white Star Quilt onto a piece of sticky adhesive sheet that was attached to another piece of white card.  I paper pieced the coral pieces into place in the nine centre sections.  I used the soft salmon card around the edges and in between the coral.  Next I added mounting foam to the white ones and the remaining soft salmon pieces.  I added these on top in either an X shape over the existing pieces or in a + shape in between them.  I cut a wide frame using the Double Stitched Squares and added it with foam.  I used the Sending Warm Wishes cut in coral and added it to the top and bottom of the frame.  The card was completed with white, soft salmon and coral mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8 1/4" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Season's Greetings

Hi bloggers!  This one is a bit different, but I really like the natural green shades in it, I can almost smell the scent of pine from it! LOL  I started with a piece of coconut white card and used the pine sprig stamp from the Wintry Flowers and Foliage stamp set.  I stamped it all around the edge in different shades of green.  I used Pine Needles, Evergreen Bough, Peeled Paint and Forest Moss Distress inks.  Next I cut the Ruffled Edge Frame in white as the base.  I added the centre of the die with the cut out rectangles in white and used Khaki card to cut the centre piece.  I went back to white for the scalloped piece to use as a base for the sentiment.  I cut the Season's Greetings out of antique gold then added the words to a white shadow base and added them to the card with foam.  I cut two of the Triple Layered Poinsettias out of vellum and used Enchanted Gold gilding polish on them before assembling.   I added the flower to the corner and used the Twin Holly Spray cut in gold as accents.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Reverse Gilding Flake Background


Hi crafters!  Have you ever considered using Gilding Flakes on to vellum and then flipping it over?  It really gives a soft, completely different look to your background, don't you think?























The finished dimensions are 7" x  8 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Let It Snow

Hi there my crafty friends!  If you haven't begun your Christmas cards yet, you may want to get started on them!   Time is creeping closer now.  I have even seen my first Christmas trees for sale in stores nearby!  I started with the Falling Snow Embossing folder and gave some texture to my coconut white card background with it.  Next I cut two of the Pearly Snowflake Borders in Arctic Blue card and glued them together to extend it.  I glued it to the top of the card and cut the side edges even with the background.  Next I cut three of the Danielle die.  Two were cut out of Arctic Blue card and backed with white.  I cut the last one out of white card and backed it with Arctic Blue card.  I attached the two Danielle dies to the sides of the card then added the white Danielle to the centre of them with mounting foam to raise it. I cut the Let It Snow Shadowed sentiment out of Bluebell card and added it onto a white shadow backing.  I added it with foam to the centre of the Danielle die.   I added white flatback pearls to the tips of the snowflakes within the dies and on the pearly snowflake border as well.  The card was completed with white and arctic blue mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x  9 1/4" in size.  All for now Sue x
