You're Beautiful In Every Way

Good Sunday morning all!  How about a clean and simple card for the day?  I started with a piec of white card.  I used Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide inks across the top of the card using a smoothie, blending the colours together.  Next I attached a piece of sticky adhesive sheet to a piece of copy paper.  I cut strips of various shades of card (teal, ocean, lilac and aqua) and added them to the sticky adheisve sheet in rows.  I cut the Bold Beautiful die word on the diagonal  through the strips of card.  I added mounting foam to raise it and attached it to the centre of the card.  I used the stamps that come with the die to add two mre parts of the sentiment, above and below the word Beautiful.   The card was completed with whte mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  8 1/2"   in size.  All for now, Sue x

Let Your Spirit Soar

Hi crafters!  I started with another background from my pixied stash.  This one used Red Oxide Pixie Sparkles.  I cut five of the Square Postage Stamp Frames in white.  I added them to the background alternating between the square and diamond orientations.  I cut the let Your Spirit Soar sentiment in black and glued it to the smallest centre square.  I cut the flower from the Hummingbird set out of both green and the pixied card.  I cut away the flowers and added them to the green stems and attached them going around the sentiment.  I added two hummingbirds that were cut out of a small piece of Aqua Lagoon pixied card.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4"  x  8"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Fun In The Sun

Hi crafters!  It's a fun shaker card for today's offering!  I started with a piece of white card and used the Jade Sparkle and Turquoise Cascade Pearlescent Watercolour inks across it.  I used a heat tool to dry the ink.  Using the Double Stitched Squares, I made a white frame and added a piece of acetate to the back of it then added mounting foam to raise it.  I scooped a couple of tablespoons of Iced Flake into the upside down frame then attached the watercoloured background to seal it.  From the Under The Sea Creatures set, I cut the lobster, crab, starfish and seashells.  I also cut several of the plants from the Aquatic Plants set.  I arranged them in opposite corners so as to still see the shaker elements.  I cut the Fun In The Sun sentiment out of both white and black card, shadowed it and glued it in the upper corner of th frame.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2"  x  7 1/2"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Sending Love & Hugs

Hi bloggers!  Today's card is a super quick and easy one to make.  I started with a piece from my background stash that was created using Pumpkin Patch Pixie Sparkles.  I used the Clipped Corner Rectangles and cut two and matted them.  I used the Daisy Cluster and cut two in white and two in black.  I shadowed the wghite die cuts then added matching flowers cut from the background pixied card.  I glued the two clusters to the sides of the mat.  I cut the Sending Love & Hugs out of the pixied card and added an offset back shadow then glued it into the centre of the card.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  8 1/2"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Deepest Wishes For A Happy Birthday

Hello crafters!  I started by tappin the Waves stencil to a piece of white card.  I used Clear Texture Paste through the mask.  Without removing the mask, I sprinkled Aqua Lagoon and Golden Mint Pixie Powders on top.  I spritzed it very lightly with water then removed the stencil and set it aside to dry thoroughly.  I cut the Neptune die in both milk card and a bit of leftover pixied card.  I cut the tail from the pixied card and glued it to the white card die cut.  i used a flesh coloured pencil to colour Neptune's face and body.  I seated Neptune with several of the sea grass from the Aquatic Plants die set.  I cut the Deepest Wishes For A Happy Birthday sentiment in black and glued it to the top of the card.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4"  x  7 1/4"  in size,  All for now, Sue x

Sending Love & Hugs

Hi there my crafty friends!  I selectedd a piece of pixied card from my background stash that used Midnight Blue and Aqua Lagoon.  I used an older stamp to add some detail all the way around the edges of the pixied piece.  It was the Orange Blossom Leaves stamp stamped in black archival ink.  I used the Double Stitched Squares to cut a white mat then I added a piece of pixied card done out of just Midnight Blue on top of it.  I used the Petite Peony Cluster cut in white twice and attached them diagonally across opposite corners, then I added blue flowers cut from some leftover pixied card.  I cut the Sending Love & Hugs sentiment in white and glued it in the centre.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8 1/4"  x  8 1/4" in size.

Flying By To Say Hello

Hi crafters!  I started this colourful card using a piece of white card as my background.  I cut the Bird Cage die in black four times.  I cut the Bird Cage in half, then took off the sides.  I put the same two pieces back together to create this new shaped birdcage.  I kept the lattice pieces from all four bird cages to make the borders on the top and bottom of the card.  I used the greenery from the Hummingbird and Toucan sets to add to the borders.  I cut the flowers in yellow, orange and ink and added them to the greenery.  I cut a Parrot out of white card.  I used Distress Markers to colour the parrot and then added him into the bird cage before gluing it to the centre of the card.  I used the Flying By To Say Hello sentiment cut in black and used above and below the focal element.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8"  x  9 1/2"  in size.  All for now, Sue x
