White on White

Hi All,

Todays card I have to show you, uses the Tulip stamp and Vine Leaves Texture Sheet.

I have stamped and embossed the Tulip in Wow Silver Super Fine Embossing Powder, then cut it out several times to achieve a decoupage effect, along with plenty of crystal glitter.I also had a play with some of the new Spellbinders dies which made it into my craft room!! Floral Ovals and Labels 25. The border was done using a Martha Stewart Deep Edge Punch.

Finally I added a few jewels, ribbon and stamped and embossed sentiment.

On the theme of black and cream...

Hi All,
The card which I have to show you today uses some of the fab new Spellbinders dies and M Bossabilities! So I decided on cream, black and gold for this one.




I firstly used a piece of cream and black patterned paper from my stash I bought at Harrogate (I think it is either BoBunny or Pebbles I can't remember which!lol) I have then embossed a piece of cream pearlescent card using one of the new Spellbinders M Bossabilities folders, 2 folders in one - such a cool idea! Using the left overs from the A4 sheet I then stamped and embossed the Small 3 Petal Stamp in Wow Metallic Brass Sparkle, to create 2 flowers I then repeated this with the large 3 petal too. The sentiment plaque was done with the new Spellbinders Floral Ovals die and the Celebrate it's your Birthday was stamped and embossed again using the Wow Metallic Brass Sparkle. On the corner I have added my small butterfly stamp which has been stamped, embossed and glittered onto patterned paper. As a finish touch (as we all know a card is never complete without a bit of bling!!) I added one of the Creative Expressions Black Pearl flourishes.

Hope you are all having a lovely Easter weekend and eating plenty of chocolate!!

Another Card

Hi All,

I have another card to show you today - I must be on a roll!! I have had more of a play with the texture sheets and this is the result, I have used the texture sheet on the left side of the card -  the photo doesn't do the embossing justice.

I also got to play with the new Spellbinders and Memory Box dies ! The Memory Box die used on this card is Twirling Vine Frame and the Spellbinders die is labels 25 with the Warmest Wishes sentiment.

The flowers were the left overs from another card which I had made a while ago and have been embossed using Wow Black Twinkle Embossing Glitter, then for an extra bit of bling crystal glitter added. The black swirls are Creative Expressions.

Have a lovely Easter Weekend.

Eventually a card!

Hi All,
Todays cards is a little different to my usual style. The new Craftwork Cards Sweetpea collection arrived last week and I LOVE the colours they are so pretty, and that is what inspired me to make this card. I have used the Peas in a Pod papers on this card.

On this card I even used distress inks... very unusual for me! I distressed the edges of the paper using Walnut Stain and Antique Linen distress ink, and the same on the lovely new Spellbinders dies, on this card I have used Splendid Circles and Persian Motifs. The butterflies have been stamped and embossed using Wow Metallic Brass Sparkle which is a little more subtle than gold, I think inked the edges of the butterfly and added glitter!

In the background I have added some small butterflies cut out using the Memory Box Butterfly Delights die, and glitter added again. The swirls have been created using the Stamps by Chloe Bling Swirl Stamp, embossed in Brass Sparkle and The Hobby House gems added.
