Seas The Day

Hi there my crafty friends!  Starting with a piece of white card, I taped the Ocean Waves mask to it and used the Glossy Glazes through it.  I used the Blush Pink, Fresh Air blue and Inspired Lilac randomly through it, then set it aside to dry.  Next I cut several of the fish from the Under The Sea Creatures die set.  I cut the foliage from the Buttercup and Button Flower Floral Panels and added them on either side of the card.  I used the Under The Waves Frame and cut the seashells out of it and added them.  The Seas The Day sentiment was cut in black and glued to the middle of the card.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  7" in size.

 
Don't forget, I will be back later today with the list of winners from the June die release launch!  All for now, Sue x

You Are Close To My Heart

Hello bloggers!  I was having a little play with the new Glossy Glazes on today's card.  I selected the Basketweave Mask and taped it to a  piece of white card.  I used the Blush Pink Glossy Glaze through the mask with a palette knife.  I removed the mask and set it aside to dry thoroughly.  I cut a multi-layered frame using the Double Stitched Squares.  I used mounting foam to attach the frames to each other and the background.  I cut a circle out of white card using the Double Stitched Circles dies and added a white backing to it then attached it to the upper right corner of the frame.  I cut the Magnolia Corner out of white card and glued it in the lower left corner of the frame.  Using the flowers from the Magnolia Corner, I cut them in white and used Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick Distress inks to colour them before assembling them.  I added them to the Magnolia Corner.  I cut the You Are Close To My Heart sentiment in white and used the same inks to colour it.  I added a black shadow to it, then glued it into the circle frame.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8"  x  8"  in size.

Let Your Spirit Soar

Hello bloggers!  I selected a piece of white card and used the Clouds mask on the top of it with Tumbled Glass Distress ink.  Next I cut two of the Scalloped Circles.  I matted them then cut the centres out.  I added mounting foam between the layers and to attach them to the bottom of the card.  I cut the two hummingbirds from some pixied card which used Aqua Lagoon Pixie Powders.  I attached one to the frame and the other one above the frame.  Using the greenery from the Toucan and the Hummingbird sets, I added it around the right side of the frame.  I cut pink and yellow flowers from the Blossom Patch set and added them for colour.  I used the Let Your Spirit Soar sentiment cut in black and glued in the upper left corner of the card.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2"  x  8 1/2"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Rejoice In The Season

Hello crafters!  I started ths card with a piece of milk card for my background.  Next I used the small scalloped border off of the Scalloped Snowflake Border die set.  I cut six of them out of gold card and six out of red card.  I glued them to the edges of the card overlapping the border by crisscrossing the opposite colour.  For the focal element, I cut a multi-layered frame using the Round Corner Squares out of milk card and I added a thin red frame cut with the same dies on top.  I cut the Rejoice the Season in gold and glued it to the centre of the frame.  I seated the frame in a diamond orientation in between the side borders.  Using The Poinsettia Trio, I cut three red poinettias and added green leaves as accents around them.  The card was completed with milk and red mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8 1/2"  x  9 1/2"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Thanks

Good Sunday morning all!   I hope you enjoyed the latest Christmas die launch.  I thought I would give you a break from  Christmas cards, but I will warn you that I have a lot of them to share in the coming months!  Todays card started with a Glitter Kiss background.  I actually used two colours of Glitter Kiss across the background even though it just looks like a dark blue.  I used Vintage Violet and Antique Rose Glitter Kiss, which I applied randomly across the card and allowed to dry thoroughly.  I used the Scalloped End Rectangles to make a multi-layered frame.  I cut a wider white base and then cut a thinner frame out of the leftover Glitter Kiss card.  I added the two frames together with mounting foam then attached it to the centre of the card.  I cut one more of the Scalloped End Rectangles in white and then cut it in half lengthwise.  I tucked the two sides under the edges of the frame.  Next I cut the Daisy Cluster in white.  I cut the matching flowers out of the glittered card and glued them behind the daisies in the clusters.  I attached them to the sides of the frame with mounting foam.  I cut two of the smaller sizes of the Scalloped End Rectangles and matted them in the centre of the frame.  I cut a small oval frame using the Double Stitched Ovals, then added a white backing to it and attached it to the centre of the frame on the mats.  I cut the Thanks die out of the glittered card and glued it inside the oval frame.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 3/4"  x  8 1/2"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Christmas Greetings

Hi there my crafty friends!  Next up is the final sentiment of the release and the only shadowed sentiment.  Introducing Christmas Greetings during this post.  The sentiment has been done in two separate words, but the shadow has been hooked together.  I have done this so that lining up the two words would be easy and if you want them shadowed separately, a simple nip in the shadow is all you need.  It's time to leave your comment if you would like a chance to win this die set.  Just a quick reminder too that the Pinterest button is on every post so feel free to save any samples or dies for later inspiration.  The final post of the day will be on the blog at 6pm today.  I hope to see you back here then!  All for now, Sue x
