Strength Circle

Hi bloggers!   How about this bright beauty for a Monday morning!  I cut the Celtic Circles Background in white and black card.  I found a piece of Pixied card I made awhile ago in my craft stash.  I used Midnight Blue, Rich Gold and Aqua Lagoon Pixie Powders on it.  I glued the background over it, then added a white frame cut from the Double Stitched Squares.  I used some of the leftover pixied card and cut the Exquisite Poppies dies out of it.  I cut enough pieces to make three dimensional flowers.  I assembled them and added them in opposite corners of the frame.  I added a white satin bow under the largest one and used white leaves as accents around all three of the flowers.  I cut the Family Circle die in black and added it to the shadow backing piece which I cut in white card.  I added it to the centre of the frame with mounting foam.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8"  x  8"   in size.  

Just to let you know, the January die release Blog launch starts tomorrow morning at 6am here on the blog!  Can't wait!  All for now, Sue x

Butterfly Stained Glass

Good Sunday morning all!  This is a bit of an older card, but I found a folder with a bunch of stained glass cards that I did for an HSN show that had never been posted and really liked this one!  I started with a piece of card that I covered with a sticky adhesive sheet.  I peeled the backing paper off and coated it with Sunlight Speckle Gilding Flakes.  As usual, I used my rubitscrubit pad to move the flake around and the refine and remove any excess flakes.  Next I cut the Butterfly Stained Glass die in black and glued it on top of the flaked card.  I cut it again out of white card and then used the fall away pieces and glued them back into the picture.  Using the Double Stitched Rectangle die set, I cut a thin frame out of card with the sticky adhesive sheet added.  I peeled the backing off and coated it with Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz, then added it with mounting foam around the stained glass die.  I completed the card with black and white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6"  x  7 1/2"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

For You

Hello crafters!  Back to the Glitter Kiss for this one!  I am sort of in love with this colour!  I started with a piece of card and covered it with Vintage Violet Glitter Kiss (which is more of a deep blue than violet) and allowed it to dry thoroughly.  Using the Double Stitched Squares, I cut three different sized squares.  The largest was used as the background base.  Next I cut the Decorative Squares in three sizes out of white card.  I matted the two of the smaller squares of the glittered card and layered them in a diamond orientation, then a square and back to a diamond, ending with the solid Decorative Square in white.  I cut the For You sentiment out of a bit of the glittered card and glued it to the centre of the card.  I used the flower die from the Magnolia Corner and cut them to make two flowers in white and assembled them.  I added them to the side of the sentiment and used the Magnolia Corner pieces as accents around them.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8"  x  8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Thanks

 Hi bloggers!  What a quick week, it seemed to just fly by, didn't it!   For today's card I thought I would share some more of the Aurora Flakes and I love the way they looked on this Endless Option design!  I started by cutting the Martha Background out of white card.  I used the Martha Edgers to cut two white accent pieces to add on top of the background.  I covered another piece of white card with a sticky adhesive sheet  and added the Golden Rose Aurora Flakes to it.  I used a small piece of Rubitscrubit pad to move the flakes all over and then to refine and remove the excess flakes off of the card.  I glued the background to flaked card, then added a white frame which used the Double Stitched Rectangles.  I cut the Decorative Flag die in white and attached it to the left side of the frame.  I cut the Thanks sentiment out of a leftover piece of the flaked card as well as the Jasmine flowers.   I assembled the Jasmine Flowers and seated them at the end of the sentiment flag and in the upper corner.  Using the Magnolia Corner die, I cut it in white and nipped it apart to use as accents around the flowers.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are  6 1/2"  x  7 3/4"  in size.  All for now.

Wishing You Brighter Days

Hi crafters!  Another All In One card for today's offering, but this one is a really quick and easy make!  I started with a piece of white card and embossed it with the Symmetry In Play embossing folder.   Next, I used a piece of Pixie Powder card that I made using the Midnight Blue Pixie Powder.  I cut the Wishing You Brighter Days die out of a piece of white card on top and the pixied piece below it.  The white card cut the complete die cut but the pixied sheet only cut the outer edge.  I cut the die again out of black card, then used that as a shadow behind the white die cut.  I glued them onto the pixied oval, then added mounting foam and attached it to the embossed background.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 
6 1/2"  x  8"  in size.  All for now. Sue x

I See Your Birthday Has Come Around Again!

Hi bloggers!  I used the Dazzling Denim Lustre Polish and covered a piece of card and allowed it to dry.  I used the Theresa Edger set to make a square shape and cut it out of the polished background.  Next I made a multi-layered frame using the Double Stitched Squares.  I added an embossed background using the Quilted Pillow folder to the square frames and attached it to the centre of the polished decorative square.  I used a bit of leftover polished card and cut out the I See Your Birthday Has Come Around Again sentiment and glued it to the centre of the frame.   I made three pink flowers using the Whirligig Flower set and added them in opposite corners.  I accented them with white Lace Edged Leaves.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  7" in size.  All for now.

Thinking Of You

Hello crafters!  I cut the Cherry Blossom Frame die out of white card.  I added mounting foam to the back of it and added a piece of Arctic Blue card behind it.  I cut three birds from the Robin Family die set out of tan card.  I used Barn Door ink on their bellies and the tips of the branch in the beak of one of the birds.  I glued the birds to the card.  I cut the flowers from the Cherry Blossom Frame out of Powder Pink card and glued them randomly to the branches.  I used Spun Sugar ink to the tip of the branches.  I cut the Thinking Of You sentiment out of tan card and glued it to the background.  I added Cosmic Lacquer to the tips of the branch that the bird was holding to give it a slight gloss.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x
