Excuse the dark pictures today – I hope you can still see the detail! I had a couple of commissions to make a silver wedding anniversary card and a wedding card – so I thought that the Tattered Lace Couple die would make a perfect centre piece.
I cut out the die using mirri card and then selected a Tonic layering die that would compliment. The silver Card uses the Baroque Ovals and the gold card the Loopy Lace Ovals . I then cut the inner oval using the two part die – but stuck them down together – that creates that pretty border in the middle.
Finally a few hearts cut from Memory Box Beloved Hearts die and some Peel off greetings added the finishing touches. This makes a lovely 8×8″ card for a special occasion.
I really enjoyed making these two dies – unusual for me to make something with no stamping at all – I definitely need to play more with my dies.
We’ll be at the Suffolk Papercrafting Show in Bury St Edmunds at the end of the month (Sunday 26th June) – Tickets available from Keep on Crafting in Bury St Edmunds.
I’ve been playing with the Memory Box Ornament Border die to make this card. Such a simple design, but I thought it looked quite effective. I’ve used a pearlescent silver and gold cardstock and cut the border alternately in each colour cardstock. Keep all the little baubles that cut out as you can use them for other projects! (more…)
This is another card idea I created on Saturday. I had some lovely ladies watching who were keen on creating cards with their dies, so we cut out a few dies and had a play to create this design. (more…)
Sorry guys, I missed posting yesterday as I was feeling a bit under the weather when I got home and so didn’t switch on my laptop. So I am back today with the last of the wedge boxes. Today’s box has a backing paper base and has been topped with designs cut with Memory Box Dies. The top is a Precious Snowflake Die and the bottom is the Pine Border Die. It’s a nice contrast to have the die cuts in white and the background that lovely deep Christmassy Green.
I hope you have liked the boxes this week. The ladies at the workshop on Monday certainly enjoyed making them. Just look at the wide range they all created!
Back tomorrow with some more Christmas ideas
Today’s wedge box is a flower theme.
I have covered each side with a piece of decorative paper. Its a good idea if you are doing a few of these boxes to make yourself a template for cutting your paper triangles. (more…)
Back with another FlitterGlu and Flakes card again today. Working again with the IndigoBlu Connors Crown Jewels stamp that I’ve worked with the flitterglu and the Winter Dawn metal leaf flakes. This time I worked my Distress Ink (Festive Berries and Peeled Paint) onto my non stick craft mat and spritzed with a little water. I then swiped my flaked design into the ink. Once dry I added a little more colour here and there with cut n dry and the same inks. (more…)
Back again with the Noah’s Ark stamp from Woodware.
Today I have worked with watercolour paints. I was clearing out a cupboard at home and stumbled across the watercolour palette I had when I was studying art for A Level (many years ago!). It’s been such a long time since I have worked in ordinary watercolour paint and I thought that this stamp was ideal to practice my skills! (more…)
I’ve had this stamp in the shop for a while and kept wanting one in my collection – well I finally caved in and had one for myself. Isn’t he cute! You obviously thought so too as due to this sample card, he sold out on Sunday – but don’t worry – I’ll get him back in stock again! (more…)
What… no inks…no stamps….that’s not like you Jane! Something different from my usual style today as I rediscovered my pack of toned Bazzill cardstock and fancied getting creative with them. (more…)
I love working in white on white and its been ages since I’ve created a piece. So this week I decided to sit down and rustle up a three dimensional project.
I started by cutting an oval with my nestabilities from Spellbinder and running it through a polka dot embossing folder. (more…)
