Recent makes…

Hello

Just popping in to share a few recent requested card makes for a friend.

An Elsa inspired card I totally CASEd from here. Thanks Lyssa. I did make one modification I used Uniquely creative stitched dies to get the curves of the dress. Those dies aren’t just for landscapes!

I also made my own shimmer spray mixing Isopropyl alcohol and shimmer paint in a spray bottle.

The next couple of cards seem to be frequent repeats!

I did consider not sharing even though they are new makes they are layouts I have used many times before! Funny I don’t really like mass producing – made 10 of one card as an invitation once and that was a struggle! However going back to making a card that seemed to work doesn’t seem to be an issue! Especially if it is for a friend and I can show them a pic before I start.

Do you ever go back and make a card again?

Sadly we were in need of a sympathy card this week.

Once again I have gone for simple white die cuts with liquid pearl centres and a simple sentiment from Avery Elle – stamp and die cut.

I have an outrageously large pile of NBUS to play with before more new play things arrive 🙂 My dilema what to play with first!

In the meantime I plan to do a little reading – Bridgerton the Duke and I – while I continue knitting a Weir for myself.

Thanks for stopping

Cheers

Wedding requests

Hello

I had a recent request for some wedding cards

I used some very old stamps sets and layouts/sketches I have made many times.

A lot of little punched out flowers! Putting some small pieces to use.

The rest of today I am planning to sort out the layout for my first ever sewalong. I’ll share the finished quilt top soon I hope!

Thanks for stopping

Cheers

Wedded Bliss…

Flourishes November Challenge

I was inspired by the colours – aqua and chocolate

I am linking this card upto the challenge

I have used Flouishes Wedded Bliss stamped in black ink and heat embossed. It is layered with American Crafts Powder card stock and  a light chocolate brown (although in the pics it looks black, trust me it is brown). I used MFT Dienamics rolled rose die to create my flowers with a Kaisercraft pearl in the centre. I added Kaisercraft ribbon and the sentiment (For the happy couple)  is from PTI Heart – 2 – Heart #9 stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black ink.

For this card I layered using Lifestyle crafts lace squares die in black card stock along with some black ribbon and PTI Tiny tags (Wedding Wishes and Mr&Mrs sentiments) stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black onto tiny tags die cut card stock.

I got a little bit of crafty time in yesterday so I will try and share those with you over the next few days.

Thanks for stopping
