Guess Who Thinks You're Special

Hello there my crafty friends!  I selected an aqua and white colour combo for today's offering.  I cut the Decorative Flags in white and did four of each design style except the square edged one, which I cut two of.  I added the decorative flags to a piece of aqua card and cut them to make differing lengths of each, then glued the cut ends to the centre of the card.  I cut one of the Joanie's Border die in white, cut it in the middle then and ran it down the centre of the flags from the top and bottom of the card, leaving a gap in the middle.  Next I cut a Double Stitched Circle and added mounting foam to it.  I embossed a piece of white card with the Rose Bed embossing folder and added the circle to it, then trimmed the excess away around the edge of the circle.  I seated the circle in the middle of the card, covering the gap in the borders.  I cut the Guess Who Thinks You're Special die in Ocean card and added a black shadow behind, then glued it into the circle.  Using the extra flowers from the Magnolia Corner die set, I made seven small flowers and clustered them on opposite sides of the circle.  I added the leaves from the Magnolia Corner as accents to the flowers.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 3/4"  x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Sparkle Every Day

Hello crafters!  I was having a play with our new Pearl Opal Polishes and came up with this card!  I started by covering a piece of card with Red Pearl, Green Pearl and Blue Pearl Opal Polishes.  I swiped the different colours across the card until I filled it and set it aside to dry well.   They look different depending on what colour card you apply them to as well.   Next I used the Double Stitched Rectangles to cut out the centre section and I added mounting foam to it to raise it.  I glued the outer frame to another piece of card as a backing and added the raised centre section to the middle.  I cut the Sparkle Every Day All in One out of both Antique Gold and Black card and used the black as an offset shadow behind it and glued both of them to the centre of the card.  I made an assortment of flowers using the Magnolia Corner's extra flowers and cut them out of some extra of the Opal polish card.  I added gold accents using the larger die from the Magnolia Corner set and arranged all the flowers and leaves in opposite corners.  The card was completed with white, gold and black mats and layers  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4"  x  8 1/2"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hip Hip Hooray

Good Sunday morning all!  It's celebration time! 
I started with a piece of coconut white card and used the Dotty Streamers die with the straight sides to cut into the card on both sides.   I went into my crafty background stash and pulled out a piece of caught in crystal that I made awhile ago.  On to a piece of acetate, I used blue and green crystal tints with some added holographic glitter and scrunched up some tissue paper to put over the back of it.  After it is dry you can use it behind dies or die cut it, both of which I have done here.  I cut out three of the balloons from the Dotty Balloon die set and added clear Cosmic Lacquer over the top to give them a shiny look.  I attached the "strings" using a couple of the different dies in the set and added the balloons to the centre of the card.  I cut the Hip Hip Hooray die out of the centre of the caught in crystal piece and added it to another one cut in white, then glued it to the bottom of the card.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2"  x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now.

Thank You For Being There

Hello crafters!  Today's colours are Blue Dusk and white.  I started by cutting four of Joanie's Border in white.  I glued them around the edge of a piece of Blue Dusk card with each of them over lapping in the corners to create an interesting pattern.  I used both the Double Stitched Squares and the Double Pierced Squares to create a multi layered frame for the sentiment.  I cut a wider white frame Double Pierced Squares and then added a thinner outer frame cut out of the Blue Dusk card using the Double Stitched Squares on top of it.  I stamped my sentiment then added a sticky adhesive sheet over the top of it.  I peeled the backing off then added the frame over it.  I sprinkled Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz on to the sticky adhesive over the sentiment for a sparkly finish.  I added the framed sentiment to the centre of the card.  I made a small flower using the extra flowers from the Magnolia Corner and used the leafy section of the die as an accent for it.  I added the flower to the lower corner of the frame with the foliage.  The card was completed with white and Blue Dusk mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  7" in size.  All for now. Sue x

Happy Birthday

Hello there my crafty friends!  This one is an older creation, but I thought it was quite pretty!  I started with a piece of coconut white card and embossed it with the Field Of Flowers embossing folder for texture.  I used the Frosty Sparkle Glitter Kiss over the embossed background to add a subtle sparkle to it (you can really see it in the close up pics).  Next I cut the Abigail die out of Sky Blue card.  I added a white backing to it and attached it to the upper part of the card.  Next I cut a white Pierced Flag die and added the Happy Birthday sentiment to it cut out of Sky Blue card.  I used the Petal Pocket Flower die and made three flowers.  I added the centres out of sky blue to tone in with the card.  I arranged two of the flowers around the end of the flag die and the other one in the opposite corner of the Abigail die.  I used both leaves from the Petal Pocket die set and Fern Fronds cut in white as accents around the flowers.  The card was completed with white and sky blue mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4"  x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now.
