Everything's All White

 

Good Morning,

Show casing another Custom Made Card. The brief was "White on White with a hint of Red". Loved, Loved, Loved playing with all my Christmas die cuts.

 

I have used "Tilda and Edwin", coloured them with promarkers and fussy cut and attached them with foam pads for depth. I have used my Swiss dots embossing folder. The beautiful white lace, white ribbon, gingham ribbon and bakers twine are all from "The Ribbon Girl".


 

I've used my Magnolia label die and doohickey picket fence die, a Marianne's Tree die and memory box corner die and they have all been frantaged to within an inch of their life lol.

 

Folded Flat for easy postage. Have really enjoyed making this card. I have also used liquid pearls, string pearls and a little charm from "Live Love Crafts".

Thanks so much for looking.

Tent Fold Christmas

 

Morning All,

Another Friday and 4 weeks today school closes for Christmas Whooo hoooo. So on the subject of Christmas I have a card to share with you. A tent fold card for my Brother and Sister-in-law. Used a beautiful "LOTV" stamp and coloured it with my promarkers, also used white flock powder for the snow and liquid pearls for snowflakes around the image.

 

The design papers are beautiful, from "Live Love Crafts", beautiful creams and pinks. The aperture was cut with my circle nesties, I edged the circle with pearls, holly leaves, roses and poinsettia all from "The Ribbon Girl". The Sentiment was computer generated.

 

The gorgeous lace is also from "The Ribbon Girl" and the cute little mitten charm are from "Live Love Crafts". I've enjoyed getting the stamps back out after working with vintage prints for a while.

Thanks for looking.

Belle Of The Ball

 

Morning Everyone,
Another Day and another card. This is for my Neice Cerys who is ten in December. I have used another totally gorgeous "Saturated Canary" digi stamp and based the colours around "Belle" from Beauty and the Beast.

 

I coloured the image with my promarkers and highlighted her with my white and gold gel pens. She has been fussy cut and attached with foam pads for depth onto a dry embossed rose background. The numbers were also die cut and sentiments computer generated.

 

The flowers are from "The Ribbon Girl" and the heart pins are from my stash. The design papers are scraps of Basic Grey and Prima.

Thank you so much for looking.

Frozen Birthday

 

Good Morning,
Sorry it's been a while since my last blog, but life gets in the way and house renovations are in full swing at the moment. Anyway I wanted to share this Bespoke Design Card that a friend of mine asked me to make for her Daughter who is "Frozen" mad.

 

I used a stunning digi stamp by Krista Smith from "Saturated Canary"  and coloured her with promarkers, based around the colours of "Elsa's" character. I die cut the name and number 7 and covered them with iridescent glitter. The design papers were from the "Do Crafts Once Upon A Time" range.

 

I die cut the snowflake border and glittered, adding gems for extra sparkle and added a few paper roses also glittered to finish the card. I didn't go overboard on the snowflakes as I didn't want it to end up too Christmassy.

 

I decorated the inside of the card to finish it off. Really enjoyed taking time out to make this card.

Thank you for looking and I really promise to take some time out and catch up with you all soon.
