Thank You

Hello bloggers!  I selected one of my favourite Pixie Sparkled background to use for today's card.  The background was created by using Teal Marine Pixie Sparkles on a piece of white card.  I cut the background into six equal sections and added mounting foam to the back and attached them to a piece of white card.  I used the Jewelled Scalloped Border and cut the die out of white card twice.  I nipped away the lattice part of the die, leaving the jewelled ends.  I attached them to the top and bottom of the background edges.  I cut the Thank You Block Sentiment in white and seated it on the larger white backing in the set.  I cut just the Thank you portion of the die out of a leftover piece of the pixied card and glued it on top of the Thank You Block sentiment.  I used the Pinwheel Flowers and made three flowers with glittered petals.  I seated them around the sentiment and added white leaves.  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

Make A Wish

Good Sunday morning all!  I used the Looped Squares to cut two sizes of the them.  I matted the two Looped Squares then cut off the other sides, leaving just a pointy part to them that I attached on top of a piece of the black and white striped paper from the Monochrome Paper Pad.  On top of that, I added seven of the candles from the Birthday Candles set.  I cut three of them out of blue card and four of them out of red card.  I added the candles without the flame to seven candles cut in white.  I coloured the frames and glittered them with Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz.  I alternated the colours of the candles in a V formation.  I used the Make A Wish sentiment cut in black and glued it to the top of the card.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/4"  x  7"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

A Joyful Christmas

 Hello there my crafty friends!  I started by taping the Holly stencil to a piece of white card.  I sprinkled Emerald Green, Pale Olive and Golden Mint Pixie Powders all over the stencil.  I gave a very light spritz of water to activate them.  I let it sit for a bit then carefully removed the mask, leaving the design in white.  I set it aside to dry overnight, then used it as the background once completely dry.  I added a green frame to it by cutting the Stitched Rectangles, then adding a thin white frame on top using the Slimline Essential Frames.  I cut the A Joyful Christmas sentiment out of antique gold card.  I glued it to the lower corner of the frame.  I cut two of the Christmas Embellishments in gold and glued them to the top two corners.  The card was completed with white and gold mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 5"  x  9 1/4"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Greetings

Hi bloggers!  Christmas is getting close now and I still have lots of cards to share!  I selected a piece of white card and covered it with a piece of sticky adhesive sheet.  I peeled the backing paper off and added a Snowflake Background cut in white to it.  I used several polished silk glitters on the remaining adhesive areas.  I used Ice Blue, Canadian Blue, Periwinkle and Sparkle Star glitters randomly all over.  I made a multi-layered frame using the Round Corner Squares cut in white.  I added the frame with mounting foam over the background.  I cut the Greetings sentiment in white and added it to the shadow die cut in white.  I adhered it to the centre of the card with mounting foam.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8"  x  8"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hello Friend

 Hello crafters!  I cut the Ruffled Edge Christmas Frame die in black to use as the base for the card.  Next I cut the Swirly Scrolls Background in black.  I covered it with a piece of white vellum so you could see the design beneath it but it was subtle.  I cut the Hello Friend die out of both raspberry card and black card.  I shadowed the sentiment with the black die cut then added it to the shadow die cut from the set which I cut in white.  I added it to the card with mounting foam.  Using the Pierced Summer Blossoms die, I made two flowers cut from raspberry card and seated them in opposite corners and added white leaves to them.  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

Christmas Greetings

Hello bloggers!  Here is a great card for Christmas and really quick and easy to make!  I cut the Pine Panel from the Holly and Pine Floral Panels set three times into a piece of green card.  I added a sticky adhesive sheet to a piece of white card, then peeled the backing paper off and attached it to the back of the panel card.  I used Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz on all the remaining exposed adhesive.  Using the Poinsettia Trio die set, I cut two poinsettias.  I added them to the lower right corner of the card and added pearls to the centres and green leaves as  accents.  I cut the Christmas Greetings sentiment in red, then added it to the shadow die cut in white.  I attached them to the card with foam mounting tape.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4"  x  7 1/4"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Just Because

Hi bloggers!  I had a dig through my background stash pile and found this pretty aubergine coloured piece to use for today's card. I used Aubergine Dream and Plum Twist Pixie Powders on it. I used the scalloped border from the Decorative Border die set and cut it four times out of white card.  I glued them facing each other on an extra bit of the pixie card.  I added mounting foam to the backs of both of them and added them to the sides of the background piece.  I cut the Noble Just Because out of black and glued it to the middle of the card.  Using the Pierced Layered Flowers, I cut all three sizes in white, then added the matching outline piece cut out of the pixied card.  I added black centres then attached them around the sentiment in opposite corners with white leaf accents.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/4"  x  9 1/2"  in size.  

Don't forget to scroll down to the post below this t see if your name is on the list of winners that was posted yesterday.  All for now. Sue x
