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

Thanks

Good Sunday morning all!  I started by covering a piece of coconut white card with a sticky adhesive sheet.  I removed the backing sheet and added Summer Meadow Gilding Flakes and used a rubit scrubit pad to refine them.  Next I used the Delicate Mask over it and applied Moonlight Pearl Luna Paste through it.  I allowed it to dry well, then cut a double layered frame using the Double Stitched Circle dies and added it to the centre of the card.  I cut a Pierced Flag and added the word Thanks to it and tucked the edge under the frame.  I used the Wildflower dies to cut three flowers as embellishments.  Gilding flakes on the top layer, black in the centre and white as the base of each of them.  I accented them with leaves and attached them all to the side of the frame.  White and black mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  7" in size.  All for now, Sue x

All The Best

Hi there my crafty friends!  We are showcasing a wisteria and Iris coloured piece today.  I started with a piece of coconut white card and cut it diagonally to give me a smaller upper piece and two inch strip in the centre and a larger bottom part.  I embossed the upper piece and the centre strip using the Brambled Rose embossing folder.  I added mounting foam to the top piece to raise it and added it to another piece of white card then glued the centre piece below it.  I taped the last piece down and stamped the corner with the Elemental Swirl stamp using a clear perfect medium pad.  I dusted it with lavender mica powder for a soft sheen to the swirl.  Next I made three Triple Layered Fuchsias using Iris card as the top, Wisteria as the middle layer and white as the base.  I added leaves cut out of Khaki green as both the top and base and another shade of green from my stash as the centre.  I tucked all the stems under the top embossed piece and had them come down the card in a diagonal.  I added the Triple Layer Hummingbird to the bottom of the card and reversed the order of the layers; Wisteria on top, Iris in the middle and white as the base.  I cut the All The Best sentiment in Iris and added a white shadow then glued it in p-lace in the top section of the card.  White, Wisteria and Iris mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  8" in size.  All for now.

Congratulations

Hi bloggers!  I am shifting away from all the blue cards lately to this soft green one.  I started by cutting the Lesley die into the centre of a piece of Seafoam green card in a diamond orientation.  I cut it two more times on either side, slightly overlapping into the centre cut, but in a square orientation each time.  I backed it with white card.  I cut another piece of seafoam green card using the outer die from the Lesley, then backed it in white and cut the centre out.  I added mounting foam to it and seated it in the centre of the card.  I cut the Beatrice die in white and backed it in white and added it to thee centre of the frame.  I cut the Congratulations sentiment twice and stacked, then added one in black slightly offset as a shadow.  I added it to a white shadow and then glued it into the middle of the Beatrice die. I made scrunched flowers using the Petite Forget Me Nots in white and added them in opposite corners.  Using a double strip of white pearls, I cut them in half and added a strip to the top and bottom edges of the card as an accent.  White and seafoam green mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  9 1/2"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Birthday Wishes

Hi bloggers! I embossed a piece of Bluebell card with the Rope Chain embossing folder to use as my background.  Next I cut two of the Herringbone Background in white.  I crisscrossed them and glued them together, then cut out two zigzag strips from the pattern to use as the outer borders on this card.  For the focal element, I cut the Vivian die in white.  I backed it with bluebell card and added a thin black decorative frame around the edge cut from the outer dies in the set.  I cut the Beatrice die in white and backed it in white then added it to the centre of the Vivian die.  I used the Belated Birthday Wishes sentiment cut in black and I nipped away the Belated part of it, leaving just Birthday wishes. The card was embellished with the Wildflowers dies.  I used Bluebell for the top layer, black for the centre and backed them in white.  I added white centres with pearls then attached them in opposite corners around the Vivian die.  I added white leaves as accents.  The card was completed with white, Bluebell and Black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are
 6 1/2" x  9" in size. All for now, Sue x
