Hope Your Birthday Is Out Of This World

Hello crafters!  I began this card by embossing a piece of white card with the Twill Weave embossing folder.  Next I cut the Out Of This World die out of black card twice.  I found a piece of background card in my stash that I had made using Midnight Blue Pixie Powders, then I had stenciled stars on to it using the Flake and Glitter glue.  I removed the stencil then applied silver gilding flakes to it.  I cut a piece of it and used it for the backing to the die cut.  I mounted it on the diagonal, then nipped away the large star clusters from the second die cut.  I used a bit of left over background and added it to the stars.  I added them above and below the original die cut.  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, Sue x

Fabulous Is What You Are!

Good Sunday morning all!  I have a clean and simple card to share with you today.  I started with a piece of white card and embossed it with the Fanciful Flowers embossing folder.  Next I used a smoothie and inked it lightly with Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Spun Sugar.  I inked a piece of white card with the same colours, then cut the Fabulous die out of it.  I added a black shadow then glued it to the card.  I stamped the rest of the sentiment and cut it out with the tag die and added it with mounting foam.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6"  x  8 1/2"  in size. 

I do apologise, but I am away on a short holiday and I cannot get any of the extra card pictures to load due to the less than decent internet where I am.  This is the only one I have had any issues with, but after several hours of trying, I have just had to throw in the towel and surrender to it!  I am back home later today so this should be the only issue and the blog will be back to normal tomorrow.     All for now, Sue x

Merry Catmas

Hello crafters!  Its time for a cute Kitty Christmas card!  I started by cutting the Slimline Inner Scalloped Rectangle Aperture Trio along with the Slimline Outer Scalloped Rectangle Aperture Trio.  I cut them both in white and over laid them together.  I added mounting foam to the back and attached an Arctic Blue card backing piece.  I left a wide margin around the die cut so I used the Essential Frames and added a thin red frame on top.  I cut all four cats in gray card and added some accents with a white gel pen.  I added the cats to all three of the apertures and the walking cat was added to the bottom corner of the frame.  I added some of the accessories to the cats too, the yarn ball, a scarf, the kitty bed and a little mouse.  I cut the Merry Catmas out of black card and glued it to the area between the bottom two apertures.  The card was completed with white and red mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 5 1/4"  x  10"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

If Friends Were Flowers

Hello there my crafty friends!  I have another of the Slimline All In Ones to share with you today.  I cut the If Friends Were Flowers in both white and black.  I used the black die cut as a shadow behind the white one.  Next I used Distress inks to colour the flowers.  I used Fossilized Amber for the larger Flowers.  I also added glue to the centres of the three big yellow flowers and sprinkled them with clear micro beads.  I used Spun Sugar and Shaded Wisteria for the smaller flowers.    I added some pale green to the leaves by using Bundled Sage distress ink.  I added a white vellum backing to the die cut.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 5"  x  9 1/2"   in size.  All for now, Sue x

Have A Joyful Christmas

 Hi bloggers!  Today's festive offering began by embossing a piece of white card with the Stripes Embossing folder.  I added a gold and black mat to the background.  Next I cut the Garland Bauble and the Sparkle Bauble out of Antique Gold Card and added a black gloss card  backing to both of them.  I cut the Bauble Branch out of Antique Gold card twice.  I glued one across the top then added a partial of the second one to extend it across the top of the card.  I cut the beaded drop pieces and added the ornaments to them.  I cut the Have A Joyful Christmas sentiment in both black and gold.  I used the black as a shadow, then glued the sentiment into the lower corner.  The card was completed with white, black and antique gold card.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4"  x  8 1/2"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Belated Birthday Wishes

Hi bloggers!  I started with a piece of wisteria card as my background.  Next I cut the Scalloped End Rectangles and I cut one large white frame and three smaller white frames.  I cut a frame out of wisteria card too.  I arranged the two larger frames in the centre of the card, raising the wisteria frame slightly above the white frame.  I recessed the centre of the frame down into the centre of them and added a Button Flower cut out of Khaki with Wisteria flowers.  I cut the Belated Birthday Wishes out of both wisteria and black.  I used the black as a shadow, then glued the sentiment inside the frame.  I cut all three of the smaller frames in half and added them to the top and bottom edges of the card.  The card was completed with white, black and wisteria mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8"  x  9"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Season's Greetings

Hello there my crafty friends!  I selected a piece of Pixie Sparkled card from my background stash.  This one used Beyond Blue Pixie Sparkles.  I cut the Slimline Inner Scalloped Oval Aperture Trio out of the background.  I glued a small piece of acetate over the back of the middle opening, then added mounting foam to the back of the die cut.  I added a piece of aqua card as a backing.  Using the Robin Family die set, I cut several birds, branches, a nest and pine cones.  I added some fluffy stuff to some of the pine branches and heated to make it look like snow.  I arranged the branches, birds and the nest in the upper and lower aperture openings.  I cut the Season's Greeting in black and white and used the white as a shadow, then I glued it to the acetate in the centre aperture.  I added a small snowy branch below the sentiment as an accent.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 5"  x  9 1/2" in size.  All for now.

Hello Sweet Friend

Hello crafters!  I started by embossing a piece of white card with the Dotty Flourish embossing folder.  Next I cut the Hello Sweet Friend All In One out of black, red, khaki and cobalt blue card.  I used the black die as the base.  I cut the two birds from the blue die cut and glued them onto the black die cut.  I cut the three birdhouses out of the red card and glued them onto the black die cut.  Lastly, I cut the foliage out of the khaki card and glued them onto the black die cut.  I added a white vellum backing to it.  I made a white frame for the die.  I cut three clouds from the Twinkle Twinkle Stars and Clouds die out of Arctic Blue and Sky Blue.  I glued them to the background, then added the slimline die cut with foam to the background.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  8 3/4"  in size.  All for now, Sue x
