For You


Hello bloggers!  I pulled out some Glitter Kiss for today's card.  I used Bordeaux and Periwinkle Glitter Kiss randomly all over a piece of white card.  I allowed it to dry overnight well, then cut it into three strips.  I added mounting foam to the back of each of the strips and attached them to a piece of white card, leaving a small gap between them.  Next I used the Paulette Edgers and cut it into a piece of coconut white card.  Next I used the cutting edge from the Joanie die and cut an aperture in the centre of it.  (I kept the actual aperture for another card) and used the aperture fall away piece here,  I added a small circle frame using the Double Stitched Circles and added a white base to it then mounted it in the centre of the Joanie die.  I cut the For You sentiment from a leftover piece of the Glitter Kiss Background and glued it inside the circle frame.  I cut several of the Jasmine Flower out of Blue Dusk card and added them in opposite corners.  I cut several of the Magnolia Corner in white and accented the Jasmine Flowers with it.  The card was completed with white on white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 3/4"  x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Happy Anniversary

Hello crafters!  I love this elegant Endless Options card.  I started by cutting the Delilah Background in white card.  Next I backed the centre section with Powder Pink card.  I added the die cut in Old Rose on the sides as an offset.  I used the fall away pieces from the background cut in Old Rose to paper piece the flowers into the original piece.  I backed the entire piece with Slate Grey.  I stamped the Jasmine Stamps in a clear Perfect Medium pad then embossed them in white embossing power.  I cut them out with the matching Jasmine dies sets and assembled the flowers.  I cut a Decorative Flag die and added it across the background with mounting foam. I added three Jasmine Flowers to the end of the Decorative Flag die.  I used the Happy Anniversary die cut out of both Old Rose and Slate Grey.  I used the grey as a shadoe behind and glued it to the flag die.  The card was completed with white, slate grey and Old Rose mat and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2"  x  8" in size. All for now, Sue x

Wishing You Well

Good Sunday morning all!  I thought I would wake you up with this ultra bright card! LOL  I used Mango Blaze, Golden Mint and Sun Yellow Pixie Powders on a piece of white card.  I used the cutting die from the Claire die set and cut an aperture in the centre.  I used the Quilted Pillow 3D embossing folder to add texture to the background.  I cut a thin black frame using the outer most dies from the Claire set and glued it around the edge of the aperture.  I cut the Claire die in black and added a white backing to it, then recessed it down into the aperture opening.  I cut the centre from the Eliza die in white and backed it in black and glued it to the centre.  The Wishing You Well sentiment was cut out of a leftover piece of the pixie powder card, then shadowed with a black die cut and glued to the centre of the card.  I added two black strips to the edges for balance.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2"  x  7 3/4"  in size.  All for now. Sue x

Hello Baby

Hi there my crafty friends!  Here's another  baby card but with just  little bit more sophistication I think.  I started with a piece of white card and embossed it with the Rainbow Heart embossing folder.  Next I cut a wide oval using the Double Stitched Oval die set.  I added mounting foam to the back of it and worked on the sentiment.  I cut the Hello Baby from the Newborn Sentiment set out of powder pink card.  I covered a piece of white card with a sticky adhesive sheet then peeled the backing paper of and laid the sentiment words down.  I used Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz on the remaining exposed adhesive, then attached the oval frame over the top.  I added it with foam to the background.  I used Old Rose card and Powder Pink card and cut out the Stitched Doodle Flowers.  I made three flowers and  and glued them to the bottom of the frame.  I used leaves cut out of khaki card as accents.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2"  x  7 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

So Glad We're Friends

Hi bloggers!  Here's an older card that I missed along the way.  I started with a piece of white card and I embossed it with the Rose Bed embossing folder.  I cut it diagonally and added it to another piece of white card.  Next I cut the Vivian die in black as a backing piece.  I went to my background craft stash and pulled out a piece of Pixie Powdered card using the Aubergine Dream, Plum Twist and Rich Gold Pixie Powders.  I cut the backing from the Vivian die and then cut the decorative part of the die in white and glued it together and added it to the black base piece.  Using a bit of extra card from the Pixie powdered card, I cover ed it in sticky adhesive sheet then cut the extra flower die from the Magnolia Corner.  I peeled the backing off of the flowers and coated them in Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz and assembled the flowers.  I glued three to opposite sides of the die and embellished them with Lace Edged Leaves.  I used the So Glad We're Friends sentiment cut in white and glued it to the centre.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x
7 1/4" in size.   All for now, Sue x

Have A Magical Day

Hi bloggers!  I started today's card by pulling out one of the new Pearl Opal Polishes.  On white card they look like a mother of pearl finish like this.  I used the Red Pearl Opaal Polish across a piece of white card.  I allowed it to dry thoroughly and then used the Rose Bed embossing folder.  I embossed the wrong side by accident but I decided to go ahead and use the debossed side on it.  I used the Double Stitched Rectangles and made a white frame and added it with foam mounting tape.  Next I cut two of the Magnolia Corner die out of Khaki card.  I used the extra flowers from the die and cut them out of a leftover piece of the opal polish card (I always say too make more than you need!)  I made six dimensional flowers  and glued them over the flower areas in the two corners, then glued the corners on to opposite sides of the frame.  I used the Have A Magical Day sentiment cut out of Old Rose card and glued it in the centre of the frame.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now.
