Happy Mother's Day

 Hi crafters!   Better late than never! LOL  I just found this one with a Mother's Day sentiment, but imagine it with a happy birthday or even a get well sentiment!  I just couldn't let it go without a blog appearance, now could I! LOL  I started by creating a letterpressed background.  I inked up the Art Deco Shells embossing folder with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink and placed a piece of milk card inside the folder.  The ink was then transferred onto the floor of the design on to the card as it passed through the die cutting machine.  Next I cut the Springtime Frame and used small smoothies to ink the die cut.  I used Vintage Photo, Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide inks.  I added small pearls to the flowers too.  I cut the backing piece out of milk card and added the frame to the centre of the background with mounting foam.   I cut the sentiment that comes with the frame and inked it to match using Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide and glued it to the centre of the frame.   I tied a messy bow with cream satin ribbon, adding a pearl to the knot and added it to the side of the frame.  Milk mats and layers were used to complete the card,  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  7 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Gilded and Beaded Card



Hi crafters!  I just love using the matching Stamps To Die For with my dies and adding some gilding flakes really makes them pop (and it is faster than colouring most of the time too!)  Add some micro beads to that and you really have some lovely texture!








 The finished dimensions are 7 1/4" x  9" in size.  All for now, Sue x

For Someone So Special

Hi there crafters!  Today's card uses wisteria and iris card with a touch of black as an accent.  I started with wisteria card as my background and cut two of the Climbing Floral Vine in white and glued them to the sides of the card.  I cut the Climbing vines again two more times out of Iris card and used the fall away from the flowers and paper pieced it back into the original white ones on either side.  Next I cut two of the Nina dies, once in Iris and once in black.  I used the back version to shadow the Iris one.  I added a white backing and added it with foam in the centre of the card.   I stamped the sentiment and added a thin black mat and added it to the centre of the Nina die. The card was completed with iris, black and white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Thanks For Being My Friend

 Good Sunday morning all!  I started with a piece of coconut white card with a sticky adhesive sheet added to it.  I peeled off the backing paper and added four Meandering Twig die cuts across it.  I sprinkled Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz across it to fill in the remaining exposed adhesive areas.  I matted it with navy blue card.  Next I cut the Bella die twice out of Cobalt blue card and once out of white, and three times out of black.  I shadowed the white one and the two blue ones with the black die cuts then attached them to the background with the two blue ones side by side and the white one in the centre.  I stamped my sentiment then added a blue octagonal mat and added it to the middle of the card.  I added a white mat with a little squiggle around it then finished with white and blue mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x  9" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hello Friend

Hi .crafters!  Here's a sample from the April die release for you.  I started with a piece of wisteria card and cut the Lattice Edging die  twice in white.  I added the larger pieces to the left and right sides of the card.  I cut the smaller piece twice and glued them into the centre area of the card (with a bit of a gap between them).  Next I cut the Caroline die out of wisteria card and backed it in white.  I mounted that piece in the centre of the card with foam.  I cut the smaller die from the Caroline in white and backed it in wisteria and mounted it in the centre.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the oval from the set, inked the edges with Shaded Lilac and mounted it in the centre.  Using the Starlight Daisy set, I made three flowers, inking the edges with lilac ink and assembling them with a bit of dimension by pinching them inward.  I accented the flowers with some leaves and mounted them in opposite corners.  Milk and wisteria mats were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  7 1/2" in size. All for now, Sue x
