Textured Frame Card

Hi bloggers!  The Isobel die set is a completely different type of die.  IT is more of an overlay and was designed to add beautiful texture and dimension by stacking.  Today's video shows off the die in a beautiful way, just the vision that I had for this design.

The finished dimensions are 7 3/4" x  7 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Thank You

Hello crafters!  Today's offering is a Noble card, so it's big one!  I started with the background,by embossing a piece of coconut white card with the Aztec Flower embossing folder.  I added small white pearls at the junctions around the focal element.  Next I cut the Classic Adorned Octagon for the outer section in Cobalt blue.  I switched and used the decorative dies from the Lavish Accented Octagon.  I used the Double Stitched Noble Octagons to add frames around both sections, with the inner section raised with mounting foam.  I seated it over the smaller white decorative section which was also cut from the Lavish Accented Octagon set.  I cut a centre blue octagon and added the Thank You mini expression to it cut in white.  The Passion Flower die set was used to create a couple of flowers to accent opposite corners.  I seated the larger flower on a satin bow and added leaf accents to both.  White on white mats were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 8 1/4" x
8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

For You

Hi crafters!  I have a pretty little number in lilac and white for today's offering.  I started by cutting the Michelle decorative die without the outer cutting edge.into the centre of a piece of coconut white card.  Next I used one of the flower stamps from the Floral Happiness clear stamp set and stamped it on to another piece of coconut white card using Shaded Lilac ink.  I got the flowers as close together as possible without overlapping them.  I added mounting foam to the back of the decorative cut out card and placed it over the stamped piece so they showed through.  In the corners of the top piece, I used the Summer Rose frame to create two corners.  I cut the frame twice out of white card and twice out of wisteria card.  I nipped away the larger corner on both white pieces and added them to the corners with mounting foam.  I cut away just the large roses out of the wisteria card and glued them on top in place on the white corners.  I lightly inked them with Shaded Lilac ink too.  I cut the sentiment from the Rose frame and used it for the centre of the card, seating it on the inside die from the Michelle die set.  I inked it lightly with Shaded Lilac as well.  The card was completed with white on white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8" x  8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Best Husband

Good Sunday morning all!  With Father's Day right around the corner (in both the UK and the US, perhaps even Canada, Australia and others), I thought I would share a super simple card for you.  I started with a piece of tan card and used the Stitched Pegboard die set to create a Faux Pegboard background for my card.  I used the stitched dies in the set to add a multi layer frame of tan and Antique silver card for interest.  I layered them up with mounting foam.  From the In The Tool Box die set, I cut all the various tool dies and added silver paint pen for the metallic look on them.  I glued them all to the pegboard background as if they were from a neat an organised garage (who are they kidding!LOL)  Finally I added the Best Husband sentiment stacked a few times to it, but you could easily adapt for Father's Day or birthdays too!  I completed the card with white, tan and silver mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4" x  7 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x
