Wild About You

 Hello there my crafty friends!  This is another one of my favourite cards from the safari collection release.  I started with a piece of Arctic Blue card and embossed it with the new Pebble Rush 3D embossing folder.  Next I cut two apertures in a piece of white card using the Double Stitched Circles.  I cut two circular frames to go around the apertures.  I trimmed them even with the sides of the card, then added mounting foam to them and raised them over the apertures.  I stamped the sentiments from the Safari Tag clear stamp set then added mounting foam to the back and added it to the embossed backing piece.  Next I stamped the Zebra and the Rhino and cut them both out with the matching dies.  I trimmed away the animals from the outer frames and coloured them with Distress Markers.  I added mounting foam to the backs of the animals, then slipped them into the apertures. The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2"  x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now. Sue x

To A Dear Friend

 Hello crafters!  I have a simple, but lovely Stampcut card to share today.  I started with a piece of Arctic Blue card for my background.  I use the Slimline Decorative Squared Rectangles and cut one larger frame and two smaller frames out of white card.  I glued them onto the blue card, slightly overlapping the edges.  I inked the Hydrangea Stampcut die with a Black Archival ink pad and die cut it.  I used Shaded Lilac and Tumbled Glass Distress markers to colour the flower and Forest Moss and Crushed Olive to colour the leaves.  I added some Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz to the flowers after colouring them.  The flower was added with mounting foam to the lower corner of the card.   I cut and added a few extra leaves as accents and added them too.  I used the To A Dear Friend sentiment cut out of Iris and black card.  I shadow the sentiment with the black die and glued it to the upper part 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.

Thanks

Hi bloggers!  I thought I would share a card that I made with one of our new embossing folder designs!  I started by embossing a piece of white card with the new Swirling Frame embossing folder.  Next I cut the Priscella die out of white and black, using the black die cut as an offset  shadow.  I backed the die with Blue Dusk card.  I used the Double Pierced Rectangles and cut a thin frame in white and added a white backing to it.  I layered it up in the centre of the Priscella die cut.  I cut the Noble Thanks sentiment out of Blue Dusk and black card, shadowed it and glued it into the frame.  I cut two Cosmos Flowers, using a white base and a blue dusk outline and added them in opposite corners with white leaves.  The card was completed with white, black and blue dusk mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2"  x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now.

Have A Magical Day

 Good Sunday morning all!  I pulled out the new Pearlescent Watercolours for today's background.  If you haven't seen these before, they are liquid watercolours that come with a dropper in them.  I just used the dropper to apply the colours, Golden Sunset and Red Sunset,  around the card, then spritzed them with some water.  I used a piece of kitchen roll to blot up an excess moisture so it dried quicker. Using the Slimline Stitched Rectangles, I cut it using the largest die in the set.   I cut the Dandelion Posies out of both white and black card.  I used the black die cut as a shadow behind.  I added dries clear glue to the flower heads then sprinkled them with Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz and let them dry.  I glued them to the lower part of the card, the added the sentiment above.  I cut the Have A Magical Day sentiment in black twice, then stacked them and glued them to the card.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 4 3/4"  x  9"  in size.  All for now.

Grateful Circle

 Hello crafters!  I started this card by taping the Blast Mask to a piece of white card.  I used Mink Luna Paste through the mask then allowed it to dry thoroughly.  Using the Double Stitched Circles, I cut an outer circular frame out of the pattern.  I added mounting foam to raise the frame section, then glued the entire background on to another piece of white card, lining up the pieces.  I used the Mink Luna Paste on another piece of card and let it dry, then cut out the Grateful Circle from it as well as three butterflies from the Petite Butterfly die set.  I added a black shadow to the Grateful Circle die and glued it to a white backing piece.  I added mounting foam and seated it in the centre of the background.  I glued the three butterflies around it.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  7"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

All The Best

Hi crafters!  I just can't seem to put down these new Pixie Sparkles!   I decided to mix the Groovy Grape and the Fuchsia Rose Pixie Sparkles colours on a piece of white card.  Once dry, I embossed it with the Stripes embossing folder.  Next I used the Tahiti die and cut it twice in white and twice in black card.  I shadow the white dies with the black die cuts then mounted them horizontally across the centre of the card, over lapping in the middle.  Next I cut the Maldives die in white.  I mounted it vertically across the centre of the card and on top of the other two dies so they were showing on the sides.  I cut the centre of the die in white and added a black mat, then layered it up in the centre.  I have a bit of left over pixied card from the background and used a small piece to cut the All The Best sentiment.  I added a black shadow, then glued it in the centre of the Maldives die.  I decided not to add any flowers so that the background would be more visible (but I think it probably could have used some!)LOL    The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  8 3/4"  in size.  All for now.
