Another Two-Fer!

Hi bloggers!  I've got two cards for you today, they are both pretty simple so I thought that they would make a good two-fer post for you.  This first one is a sweet little card that uses the Bird Cage Die D-lite.  I started with a piece of coconut white card and used a swirl stamp from the Creative Expressions set called Beaded Elements to stamp all around the edge and emboss with white powder. I love that white on white look.  Next I embossed a piece of lavender card using a Couture Creations embossing folder called Melody.  I simply cut around the design with a pair of scissors to create an interesting border (tip: if you use a piece of fine sandpaper you can smooth any rough areas of your hand cutting!).  I cut the bird card in white card and added some mounting foam to the back.  I tied a messy bow from mauve seam binding and added it to the side of my card.  I used a piece of pastel Bakers Twine and ran it from my bow to the top of the birdcage (sort of looks like the bird cage has been hung by it)  I had a small bird stamp that I used inside the open door of the birdcage.  I added a double white card border and used white PVA glue dots around the inner layer to complete this card.  Finished dimensions are 6" x 8" in size.  Scroll down for the second one.







Also featuring the Die D-Lites, this card is ultra simple as well.  I embossed a piece of white card using the Fretwork mask and added two strips of decorative paper (from my stash) down each side.  I covered a piece of black card with a sticky adhesive sheet and cut the Filigree Vase.  I peeled the backing paper off and gilded it with Persian Dream gilding flakes.( I have since learnt from blog friend Beverley that it is easier to gild, then die cut and I have to agree!)  I added some foam mounting to the back of it and curved it slightly.  I cut the Asters and Poppies Die D-Lites out of black card.  While still in the die, I inked them with a clear perfect medium pad.  I removed them from the die and heat embossed them with clear powder to add detail to the flowers.  I trimmed the stems slightly and placed the ends behind my vase so they looked as if they were inside the vase.  I added some black and white mats and piercing to the edges to complete this card.  Finished dimension is 7" x 8" in size.

I am still waiting for the card giveaway to be claimed, so if anyone knows Norah McPhee, please have her contact me.  I will give her a few more days to make contact, then draw another name if I still haven't heard from her.

Morning Sue, two beautiful cards today, i love this birdcage and it gives a rather unusual look to a card don't you think?

The vase is also beautiful and being gilded really sets it off.

Thank you again for all your inspiration.

Thanks for another two-fer, Sue. Both great cards and the first so pretty, great embossing folder. Like the black-and-white (of course!) and do envy you your card stash - the black border pieces are just perfect on this.

Hi Sue love the first card, simply but so elegant. The folder background is really nice and the tip on sandpaper good as not really thought of that. The second card is pretty another great tip using gilding flakes so thanks to Beverley and you for passing onx

alimecca said...

Hi Sue
Really like both cards today but my favourite is the vase and flowers. However, I like the colour combination of the birdcage one better! Have the flowers and vase and made similar cards but inked through the flowers so they were "summery" and the recipients were very impressed with them.

Hi Sue,

I was lucky to get pulled from the spotty potty and the card is the same as todays second one but with gilding down the sides instead of black. Its a lovely card in the flesh. x

Two beautiful cards today. I especially like the embossing folder that you cut around on the first card. Would never have thought of that. They might not be new ideas but it's lovely of you to show us different ideas, even for embossing folders. Congrats to all winners. Have a lovely Sunday Sue.

Tres said...

Hi Sue. Two cards for today and they both look great !! I must be the first or only person to say this but I am not to keen on the first background folder (sorry.) I think a background folder with an all over pattern would suit the first card better. I love the rest of the card though and your colour combo to. The bird cage die is very sweet. My favourite card is the second one with the gilded vase and the de-lites flowers dies. (Much more my kind of card.) Thank you for lots more great inspiration and ideas Sue !! Congrats to today's winners. Happy crafting every one love Tres x x x

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue,
The first card is my favourite as i can imagine it hanging up. My great, great, great aunt had her budgie coming down from the ceiling. And just for a change i have all the elements to make your beautiful card. The 2nd card i think would make a good card for a man as they enjoy flowers too, or for a lady who is not into fussy although i can't understand someone who does not like a beautiful card with its adornments that just make it stunning. Thank you for passing on your wonderful talent again.
Love and crafty hugs
Norah

lynda said...

WOW two cards what a treat love the first card that little bird cage is so sweet love the background and the way you've cut away to make border. The second card is beautiful love the vase with the guiding flakes makes it pop right out so both cards get the wow factor from me .
