A Sweet Miracle Is On The Way

Hello crafters!  This sweet little baby card is a simple one and doesn't need much explaining.  I started with a piece of coconut white card as the background.  Next I cut six circle frames using the Double Stitched Circle die set.  Three were smaller and three were larger.  I added mounting foam to all of the circle frames then added them to the background card alternating the sizes.  Next I used animals from both the Zoo Animals die set and the Farm Animals die set and cut them in various shades of pastel card.  I added all the animals to the circle frames either by themselves or with a mate.  I added the bird to sit on top of the right hand side top frame and a small bird from the Noah's Ark set in the opposite corner.  I used the A sweet Miracle Is On The Way sentiment at the top of the card cut out of Blue Dusk card.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4"  x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

For You

Hi bloggers!  I started today's card by using the Lustre Polishes across a piece of black card.  I used Tantalising Teal, Apple Fizz and Blue Alure Lustre Polishes randomly on to the card and allowed them to dry well.  Next I cut a large frame out of it and then cut the Paulette Background into the centre piece from the frame.  I backed it with a piece of black card.  I added a multi-layered frame made from a white base and a thin black gloss card frame on top and added it with foam.  I cut a Pierced Flag and used the For You sentiment cut out of an extra piece of the lustre polish card.  I cut one in black and used it as a shadow behind the sentiment.  Using a bit more of the extra card, I cut a Jasmine Flower and added it to the end of the sentiment flag.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4"  x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now.

Merriest Christmas Wishes


Hello crafters!  Yes it is that time again,  time to start sharing Christmas cards!  I just had to start with an angel card too!  For this card, I started by embossing a piece of coconut white card with the Falling Snow embossing folder.  Next I cut the Mosaic Ray Background out of white card.  I used a sticky adhesive sheet on to another piece of white card, peeled the backing off and attached the Mosaic Ray Backround to it.  I pulled out the Holographic Glitters to fill in the background.  I used Midnight Blue, Teal Have and Sea Spray and I started around the centre circle area in the die then roughly sprinkled them in a circle starting with the dark blue, then the teal and then the sea spray at the bottom.  I cut a circular frame using the Double Stitched Circles die set and added it with foam over the background.  I trimmed away the excess around the edge of the circle then added it to the embossed background with mounting foam.  I cut the Christmas Angel 2020 once out of white card and twice out of silver mirror card.  I used  Distress ink to colour the hair, face and arms of the angel on the base white card.  I cut the dress out of the two silver die cuts.  I added one full dress, then cut the bottom off of the second on and added it one top to give a flowy look to it.  I cut the wings out of vellum and attached them then added the angel to the circular frame with foam.  I cut the Decorative Flag die to give it two forked ends by cutting half way then moving the die around to the other side and cutting it again.  I added one more Decorative Flag in the centre but cut the forked ends off of it so it looked like it was tucked under.  I used the Merrriest Christmas Wishes sentiment cut out of Cobalt Blue card and glued it in the centre.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished diemnsions are 7 3/4"  x  8 3/4" in size.  All for now.

Sparkle Every Day

Good Sunday morning all!  It's a quick card for today's offering and one that uses my favourite Yupo paper too!  I started with a piece of the white Yupo Paper and used Red Pepper and Wild Plum alcohol inks onto a felt applicator, then pounced on to the Yupo.  I added a little bit of Blending Solution to get the colours to mix and dance a bit.  Once I was happy with it, I used a Gold metallic Marker and splattered it across the card.  I cut the Sparkle Every Day All In One twice, once out of gold mirror card and once out of white card.  I used the white as a shadow behind the gold then glued it to the card.  I used the fall away stars from both of the die cuts and glued them around the outside of the die cut.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 5 3/4"  x  7" in size.  All for now. Sue x

So Glad We're Friends

Hello crafters!  I am going back to an earlier release with this one.  I started with the Summer Sky Opal Polish across a piece of black card.  Although it looks blue in the container, on dark card, you get the interference mica showing which is a gold colour.  I swiped it across the card using lighter and heavier strokes so sometimes you see the gold and other times you get more of the blue colour showing through.  I cut an aperture in the card using the Millie die ouline die.  Next, I used the Quilted Pillow embossing folder on it for textureand added mounting foam to raise it.  I added it onto a piece of white card (which did not show but gave me a base)  I cut the Millie die again twice, once in white and once in black.  I shadowed the white one with the black die cut then added the piece behind it that was cut from the aperture.   I glued it into the recessed aperture.I used the outer decorative ring and cutting edge from the Millie set to add a black frame around the aperture opening.  Using the Double Stitched Circle die set, I cut a small white frame and added it with foam in the middle of the Millie die.  I cut the So Glad We're Friends sentiment in black and glued it inside the white frame.  I added three small flowers cut from a left over section of the Summer Sky Opal Polish piece.  I cut two thin strips of the leftover piece and added thin black mats to them and glued them on the edges of the card as borders.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  7 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Best Wishes

Hi bloggers!  I strarted this card by coating a piece of card with the Violet Vibe Lustre Polish.  Once dry, I embossed it with the Dotty Flourish 3D embossing folder.  I used the Snow & Ice Lustre Polish and went over the embossed areas lightly to add highlights.  I use a double strip of pearls cut down the centre and embellished the top and bottom edge of the background.  Next I used the Decorative Squares to cut one large frame and two smaller sized frames.  I also cut the outer decorative die from the Joanie die set to create a thin frame.  I added mounting foam to the squares and seated them in a diamond orientation acorss the card.  I used the Joanie frame and tucked it under the four points from the largest square to add an accent.  I stamped the sentiment and cut it out with the Decorative Flag die  and added it across the centre of the largest frame with mounting foam.  I used the extra flowers from the Magnolia Corner to add three flowers.  I used the Snow & Ice Lustre Polish to add a hint of colour to them before assembling them.  I glued them to the right of the sentiment flag.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4"  x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x
