For You

 Hello crafters!  I selected a piece of antique gold card to use as the background.  I cut the Art Deco Fan Border twice out of black card.  I cut both of them down the centre and glued them to the edges of the card.  I added a thin strip of black card to the cut sides of the dies.  I cut the Art Deco Ornate Tile middle die out of white card twice.  I added them to the centre of the card by crisscrossing them.  I cut the small centre die from the set in gold and glued it to the middle of the card.  I cut the Art Deco For You sentiment in black and glued it to the middle of the card.  The card was completed with white, black and antique gold mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4"  x  7 1/4"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Happy Christmas

 Hello crafters!  I had a rummage through my scrap box and found these colours to make a background.  I selected teal, raspberry, and amethyst card to use and cut them into half inch strips.  I added a piece of sticky adhesive sheet to a piece of card and laid the strips down next to each other.  Using the Bubble Tree-O die set, I cut the three trees out of the background (grouped closely so that I could cover cut out area).  I added each of the striped trees cut from the background to the Bubble Tree die cut out of gold mirror card, thn added an antique gold outer die to each of them.   I cut a frame using the Clipped Corner Rectangles and added mounting foam to the back of it and added a piece of white card to it.  I seated all three trees inside th frame and added small stars as accents.  I cut the Happy Christmas sentiment in gold and glued it above and below the frame.  The card was completed with white and gold mats and layers.  The finihsed dimensions are 8"  x  9" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Birthday Wishes

Hello crafters!  I started today's card by cutting the Stained Glass Rectangle die out of  Amethyst card.  Next I cut the Art Deco Oval Frame out of both black and white card.  I used the white die cut as a shadow behind the black one (for a change!).  I taped it to the Amethyst background.  I cut the Art Deco Grand Labels in white and added a white backing piece.  I cut the Art Deco Birthday Wishes sentiment in both Amethyst and black card.  I shadowed the sentiment then glued it to the Grand Label.  The card was completed with white, black and Amethyst mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Thinking Of You

 Hello there my crafty friends!  I selected a piece of blush card and embossed it with the Heart To Heart Embossing folder.  I used a piece of Old Rose card and cut it on the diagonal and glued it to the middle of the card.  I added two thins strips of old rose card to the edges of the piece.  I cut Milo out of tan card.  I added a blanket cut in blush card, an envelope with a blush heart and I cut an extra ear and added it to Milo.  I seated Milo on the bottom of the crad.  I used the Thinking Of You sentiment cut in white and glued it to the diagonal sash across the card.  Using the Pinwheel Florals, I cut a couple of flowers in white and glittered the backing piece and assembled the flowers.  I added them with white leaves to the middle of the card.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4"  x  8 1/4"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Happy Birthday

 Hello bloggers!  I embossed a piece of white card with the Tidal Sands embossing folder.  I sprayed it with spray glue then glittered it with Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz.  Next I cut the outer and middle die from the Stained Glass Tulips in white.  I backed the middle die with a piece of black card.  I cut the Tulips in black and glued a piece of clear acetate to the back of it.  I turned it over and, working from the back, I added glue to the leaves first then sprinkled green glitter over it and tapped it off.  I continued to add glitter to the design, doing the darkest areas first and working towards the lighter colours.  I set it aside to dry over night then added it to the centre of the card.  I cut the Happy Birthday die in black and glued it to a white shadow backing piece.  I added it below the focal element with mounting foam and glue.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  7 3/4"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Have A Joyful Christmas

 Hello crafters!  I selected a piece of antique gold card to use for the background.  I cused the Plume Corner and cut it into the card in each of the four corners.  I covered a piece of white card with a sticky adhesive sheet, then attached it to the background.  I used Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz on the exposed adhesive areas.  next I used the Round Corner Squares and I cut a multi-layered frame.  I cut a wider white base and added a thin black frame on top of it.  I added it to the centr of the card with mounting foam.  I cut the Have A Joyful Christmas sentiment in black and glued it inside the frame.  Using the Classic Poinsettia die set, I cut two small poinsettias out of gold glittered card.  I assembled the flowers and added them to the corner of the frame with some white leaves as accents.  The card was completed with white, black and gold mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8"  x  8"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

For You

Good Sunday morning all!  I started with a piece of white card, then I cut the Art Deco Ornate Tile out of silver sparkle card.  I nipped the die in half and glued each of the pieces to the top and bottom edges of the card.  I cut a small white circle using the Double Stitched Circles.  I added mounting foam to the back of the circle then attached it to a piece of card covered with a sticky adhesive piece.  I peeled the backing paper off, attached the circle then added the Art Deco For You sentiment to the centre of it and sprinkled Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz on the remaining sticky area.  I added it to the centre of the dies.  I used some silver glittered tape from my stash and added it to the sides of the card.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished simensions are 7 1/2"  x  7 1/2"  in size.  All for now, Sue x
