April Blog Launch / Friend Bold Shadowed Sentiment Die/Stamp Combo

Hello crafters!  Welcome to the April die release launch!  We are showcasing the collection of ten new dies this month.  As usual, I will be giving away one of each of the die sets based on a drawing done from the comments on each post.  Please be sure to leave your name on each comment and make sure it is unique in some way so I don't have more than one person claiming the winning die.  Try adding the city you are from or a funny alias, just some way to make it memorable please.  I will announce the winners on April 22nd in the afternoon, so please be sure to check back!  
Starting with out new line of Bold Shadowed Sentiments, we are showcasing the Friend die/stamp combo first.  Shown here, you can see how beautiful this font is with a lovely flourish to the front and back of the word.  The coordinating stamp set gives you all the elements to make a lovely card to send to a dear friend.  If this one gets your craftiness running, then just leave a comment on this post and you will be entered into the drawing to perhaps win this set.  I will return at 12 noon for the second post of the day.  Hope to see you back here then.  All for now, Sue x

Retail Therapy

Hello bloggers!   How about this fun retail therapy card! LOL  I started with a piece of white card and used the Beyond Blue Pixie Sparkles all over it then spritzed it with water.  After it was thoroughly dried, I used the Slimline Essential Frames to cut a large frame.  Next I used the Slimline Decorative Rectangle Trio Aperture and cut it out of white card.  I used the centre fall away from the Pixie Sparkle frame and glued it behind.  I added the frame with mounting foam over the aperture trio.  Next I used the Retail Therapy die set and cut two shoes out of black gloss card and glued them in the top opening.  I cut two nail polishes and a lipstick and glued them into the bottom frame.  I cut the retail therapy sentiment out of white and added a black shadow.  I glued that into the centre then added small versions of perfume bottles and a shoe underneath.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 5"  x  9 1/4"  in size. 

We are starting the April die release blog launch tomorrow morning just to let you know!  There are eleven dies in this release including some new Stampcut designs!  Hope to see you bright and early tomorrow!   All for now, Sue x

Happy Birthday

 Hello crafters!  Since we have just launched our new Cosmic Shimmer Pearl Tints recently, I thought I would share a card I made with them!  In fact, our Gwen Fletcher is doing a show on Create & Craft this week on the 15th with them!  I started by cutting the Happy Big Bold Word die out of black card.  I glued it to a piece of clear acetate.  Working from the reverse side, I used the Pearl Tints to fill in all of the letters.  The colours I used were Chateau Rose, Blue Diamond, Racing Green, Canary Song and Heavenly Pink.  I covered a piece of white card with a sticky adhesive sheet, then peeled the backing paper off and coated it with Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz.  I cut a frame from the Clipped Corner Rectangles and added it with mounting foam to the Happy die (once the pearl tints were good and dry).  Next I added the frame piece to the glittered background.  I stamped the sentiment and cut it out with a tag die, then added it to the lower corner of the card.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Home Tweet Home

Hello there my crafty friends!  I just love this sweet birdhouse card, it really works with the slimline profile I think!  I started by cutting the Slimline Decorative Oval Aperture Trio die out of white card.  I added some mounting foam to the back then attached an Arctic Blue card backing.  Next I cut two of the birdhouses from the Home Tweet Home die set out of tan card, adding a red roof and front.  I cut the branch from the A Little Birdie Told Me set out of tan card, then added the green leaves with a Forest Moss distress marker.  I attached little bits of branches to all three apertures, then added the birdhouses with mounting foam.  I cut the sentiment several times out of Ruby Red card and stacked them, then glued it into the centre opening.  I added a couple of flying birds to the top corners.   The card was completed with white and red mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 5"  x  9"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hope Your Birthday Is Unforgettable!

Good Sunday morning all!  I selected the A5 Pebble Paving Mask and taped it to a piece of milk card.  I randomly applied Vintage Photo, Weathered Wood and Bundled Sage Distress Oxide inks through it.  Next I stamped the Elephant and cut it out with the matching Elephant die.  I coloured the stamp with Distress Markers (Weathered Wood, Antique Linen, and Tumbled Glass).  I inked a piece of white card with Tumbled Glass and used it behind the elephant, raising the die with mounting foam on it.  I added the elephant to the right side of the card, then stamped the sentiment from the Wild About You clear stamp set.  I cut it out with the Safari Tags die set and added it with foam to the left hand corner of the card.  The card was completed with milk card mats and layers  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2"  x  8 3/4"  in size.     All for now, Sue x

Happy Birthday

Hi crafters!  Here is a super bright and fun card when you next need a Birthday card quickly!  I started with a piece of white card and used several Distress Oxide inks one it in diagonal stripes.  I used Shaded Lilac, Spiced Marmalade, Worn Lipstick, Fossilised Amber, and Peacock Feathers.  I repeated the colours until I filled the card.  Next I used the Slimline Decorative Squared Stripes and cut into the card.  I backed it with a piece of white card that had a sticky adhesive sheet added to it.  I used Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz to fill in the remaining exposed adhesive and give the background a sparkly look.    Next I added a multi-layered frame using the Slimline Essential die set, cut out of white card.  I cut the Noble Happy Birthday sentiment out of white gloss card and added it with mounting foam across the card.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 5"  x  9 1/4"  in size.  All for now. Sue x

You Are The Best

 Hi crafters!  I thought the Daisy Blooms Stampcuts die would look lovely as a wreath, don't you?  I started by inking the Daisy Blooms die and cutting it five times.  Using Distress markers, I coloured all of them.  I used Shaded Lilac, Spun Sugar. Mustard Seed and Crushed Olive Distress markers.  I added glue to the centres of the daisies and added clear medium sized micro beads to them for texture.  I cut a white background and embossed it with the Graduated Dots embossing folder.  I arranged the five Stampcuts into a circle and added them with mounting foam, slightly overlapping each one.  I cut the You Are The Best sentiment out of Blue Dusk and black card.  I used the black as an offset shadow behind then glued the sentiment into the centre of the wreath.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  7"   in size.  All for now. Sue x
