Wisteria Birthday

Morning all

For today's card I have used the Heraldic Die from Sue Wilson again.
For the background I cut four of the smallest decorative die and mounted them on to coconut white card. 
I cut the largest die and inked through with CE colour cloud ink in frosty heather.
I sprayed another of the decorative dies with glue and sprinkled CS diamond sprinkles over the top and mounted it on to the larger die.

The sentiment is from Justrite stamps and die cut with Sue Wilson pierced flags and inked through with the same colour.
The flower I made from Sue's camellia complete petals from white card which I inked  with the frosty Heather. 
I cut two of the laurel leaves out of wisteria card to pop behind the flower.
The frame I made from Sue's ornate pierced square dies and added a thin wisteria mat before placing all of this on to my 6x6 card.
 I finished  it off by adding some pearls to each of the corners.

A Gold Christmas

Hello all

A quick post today as its been a hectic week.

A gold and cream card for today offering.
 I put some Sand glitter paste from Glitz Craft through the snowflake mask onto soft shimmering gold card.
I created a frame from Sue Wilson's noble collection.
I popped the cream poinsettia ribbon flower in the corner and topped this with a homemade 'dazzler'.
I did this by using my glue gun and creating a dot ( you can make this any size you want) and then while it was still hot I poured some mica flakes - Tarnished bronze over the top.
It only take a minute or so  to cool down. I usually make a few of these you can use glitter as an alternative.

Thanks for popping by....

Heraldic Square

Good Morning Bloggers

I hope you are all keeping well.

Today's offering is using one of my favourite dies of the moment from Sue Wilson - the Heraldic Square die.
I just love the versatility of this die
I have stamped the Regal Blossom outer frame that matches the die in silver embossing powder and cut it out with Sue's New York collection of dies.
I coloured it in using a selection of the Sakura stardust pens, to give a hint of sparkle.

I used only the inner die with the outer cutting edge from this die set and popped a purple flower from my stash into the centre.

Many thanks for popping by.

A day shopping

Hi Bloggers

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.
My daughter and her boyfriend arrived back from Dubai on Thursday they had a great time.

This is the card I did for her birthday as she does like a little bit of retail therapy..(lol) and her favourite colour is green.

I used Sue Wilson Ornate Pierced Squares from her noble collection.
The stamps are from Creative Expression set A Day Shopping.
I used promarkers to colour in the  main image and used Bundles Sage distress ink to ink around the image.
I embossed a white card with the second die from the set (I count from the outside die) and added pearls to each corner.
If you have time to leave a comment it would be much appreciated.

Canadian Background

Morning Bloggers

I hope you are all keeping well.
It will be my eldest daughters birthday on Thursday, although she will be swimming with Dolphins in Dubai  - lucky girl.
I need to make her birthday card, which I hope to do today.
For todays' card I decided  to have a play with Sue Wilson's Canadian background die which I  purchased last month but have not had a chance to use.
This  card was the result.  I hope you like it.

 I used the Foundation coconut white card with some  from Limetree Crafts called Violet Rose which I  just adore.
I added CS PVA glue dots in the pearl and vintage plum as shown. On the edge of the card I used a CS Frosty Heather Colour Cloud Blending ink then added CS glue and dipped each edge into CS Diamond Sprinkles.
I made my own banner and used the sentiment from Britannia dies which I then embossed twice in CS clear detail powder. I inked round the edges with the same blending ink.

Christmas Greetings

Hi  Bloggers

Today's offering is a Christmas card made with Sue Wilson's Ornate Pierced Rectangles from her Noble die collection.
I started by using a polka dot mask over some Ruby Red foundation card and spreading  some red glitter frosting paste through the mask and leaving it to dry over night.
I used Sue largest dies from this set and then the fourth one down to create a frame out of coconut white card.
Then I wanted just a thin black matt to go behind this frame, so I  used the largest die again, but just embossed  a piece of black card. Then I used my poky tool to score a line around the outside of this die and then cut it out with scissors. This provided me with the matt that also had the pierced edging all the way around.
I stamped the Heartfelt Creations Christmas Poinsettia stamp onto red card  and embossed this in black and used the coordinating die set to cut them out and create the flowers. I added a black pearl from my stash to the centre of each Poinsettia and added some black organza ribbon behind some of the flowers.
For the sentiment I used a Tattered lace die and I added a white pearl to the 'dot' of the I.
I then matted all this on to an embossed white background using a  Spellbinders folder and then added matts of red and black to frame the card.
I am also entering my offering on the  challenge blogs below:

Daisy Sunday

Good Sunday morning

If you saw my post on Thursday you would have seen I was going to see Michael McIntyre that night. He was great, -  such a funny guy, I never knew his calf muscles were quite that big (you had to be there, lol !!)

Now on to today's card.

This card was stamped with John Lockwood's daisy corner stamp.
This is the only stamp set I own from John but I must say it is gorgeous.

I stamped the main stamp with versamark ink and embossed it with CS silver detail embossing powder.
Next I cut a frame from Spellbinders largest Floral Assortment die which I then mounted on to white card cut from the largest of  Sue Wilson dies from her New York collection, Herald Square and then I cut the purple card from the times Square using the largest die.
This was all matted on to a white card with the  CS silver glue for the pearls. I then used the bluebell pro marker around the edge to give the illusion I have matted the white on to another piece of purple card. I do like this technique as is saves on card stock ... finished dimensions are 6x6.

If you pass by please be kind enough to leave me a comment.
Have a great Sunday. xx
