Happy Birthday

Hi crafters!  This is one of my personal favourites from the Sept. release, I just love the pop of bright colour on it!  I started with a piece of White gloss card and used Alcohol inks on it.  I started in lines with sunshine yellow, pink sherbet, raspberry, amethyst, mermaid and citrus.  I allowed it to dry, then cut the Noble Happy Birthday out of it, placing it at an angle across the colours.  I cut the curved Dotty Streamers out of Gloss White card and glued the, all over a piece of coconut white card.  I added mounting foam to the Happy Birthday and added it to the centre of the card for a clean and simple look.  The card was completed with white on white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Owl Always Be There For You

Hello crafters!  I have been playing with the new Wise Old Owl die set.  I started by using the Stitched Cloud die and cutting it to use as a stencil.  I lightly inked the white card around the cloud stencil with Tumbled Glass and Spun Sugar Distress inks.  Next I cut the large branch out of tan card.  I used the left over card with the shape cut from it as a stencil on a piece of white card.  I used Forest Moss and Peeled Paint in the leaves and Tea Dye distress oxides in the branches.  Next I added the cut branch across the card and coloured in the leaves with the distress oxides.  Next, I used the Double Stitched Rectangles and cut into the centre to raise the rectangle up with mounting foam.  I cut the Owl out of tan card and lightly stencilled through the die with Tea Dye ink.  I added a chestnut brown backing to the owl and used a white pencil to add highlights to the feathers.  I cut the sentiment in arctic Blue and chestnut brown and shadowed it before gluing it to the card.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 3/4" x  8 3/4"in size.  All for now Sue x

Season's Greetings

Hello bloggers!  I started today's card by cutting the Ruffle Edged Frame out of antique silver card.  I used Old Rose card to cut the centre base section and layered it onto the larger piece with a white backing added.  Next I cut the Pretty Poinsettia Frame in white.   I added it to a piece of acetate that had a sticky adhesive sheet added.  I peeled the backing off and coated it with Iced Flake to give it a crystallised look.  I glued the Pretty Poinsettia frame to the top of it and paper pieced the flowers back into place from the fall away pieces.  I cut the Season's Greeting sentiment  in silver and added it to a white backing and glued them into the frame.  The card was completed with white, old rose and silver mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  8 1/4"  in size.  All for now.

Just For You

Good Sunday morning all!  Here is another sample from my Glitter Kiss shows on HSN a few months ago.   To begin, I coated a piece of card with Periwinkle Glitter Kiss and allowed it to dry.  I used the Double Stitched Squares to cut a frame out of it.  The inside piece was used as the background on the inside of the frame.  I added the thin Glitter Kiss frame to a wider white frame to give it a multi layered look and attached it with foam.  I cut the Millie die in white and added it to the centre.  Out of a small piece of the Glitter Kiss card I had left over, I cut the Just For You sentiment and glued it to a circle die cut then added it to the centre.  I used three small flowers as accents which are from the Blossom Patch die set.  I completed the card with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  7" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Christmas Wishes

Hi bloggers!  I think it is time to share an angel card!  I started with a piece of card and used Enchanted Gold and Silver Dream Gilding Polish all over it.  I blended the two polishes to create a soft metallic look.  I used the Stardust Background and cut it into the card once dry.  I used a gold mirror card as a backing to show through the cut out areas.  I cut the Christmas Angel 2019 out of antique gold card.  I added the wings cut out of vellum and used the enchanted gold polish on them and cut the halo and peace sash out of silver card.  The Star Of Wonder was cut out of antique gold for the top layer, gold mirror card for the middle layer and silver pearl for the bottom layer.  I added the centre piece cut out of the same arrangement then added it to the upper corner of the card.  I used the Christmas Wishes cut out of antique gold card in the lower corner.The card was completed with white, gold and silver mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  7" in size.  All for now.
