Dove Love

Morning all

Here I am back for my weekly post for


so today I have another lovely Wedding Card ( I hope you can spot the naught pearl, I have now resolved this, I only spotted it when I took the photo)

Papers - Scattered Confetti
Image - Birds on a Nest


The card blank is a create and craft half scallop


I started by adding a layer of the gorgeous papers and then framing this with the Sue Wilson double pierced square dies creating a double depth border to sit the beautiful die into.  I distressed through the die so that the lovely heart was clear and visible.  I then finished off with the florals and pearls and the two sentiments.

Such a quick card to make and so elegant I thought, hope you do too.

so today I have another lovely Thinking of you Card

Happy Birthday

As promised back again for my weekly inspiration for


today I am sharing with you a Birthday Card

using
Papers - Icing on the Cake


This card was created following a Xmas Card I received from the lovely Jackie, hers was a smaller version, and I wanted to create it super sized so that an image could be added.  


The card is made up of 3 squares, scored down the middle and joined together to create the pyramid.


I used my Sue Wilson Double Pierced square dies to create the squares and love how the designer papers look so pretty on the white.  I cut the die and distressed the TH DI through the die to create the soft background.  I coloured up my image and used the scan n cut to cut it out to perfection (I was never good at fussy cutting).  I then added my usual embellies, the double, triple layer pink satin bow, a cameo and surround from the HH, some HH roses along with some IAR flowers.  The Sue Wilson flag holds the sentiment again distressed through the die and then some tonic drops on the butterfly and the card to complete.


The image coloured in copics and some platinum stickles for the flower centres.  Just love how it turned out, will definitely be making some more of these cards.

As always thank you to all my wonderful visitors for your inspiring comments, I will be over to see you shortly and yes due to my cold I have been a little remiss with my commenting, so sorry.

Congratulations on Your New Job

Good morning to you all

As you know a Wednesday means more of my lovely


inspired creations, today I am sharing with you a New Job Card

using
Papers - Blackberry Lane
Die - Oval Frame
Image - Emily Vacuuming
Sentiment - Everyday Sentiments


I used a Create and Craft Scallop card blank


This was a one hour card, due to being informed Mike's girlfriend had got a job and was due home to ours in an hour, skate's on for me.
So the base colour and contrast is the yellow, I used the Sue Wilson double pierced squares to create the layers and her flags to create the sentiment holder.  I cut the oval frame out in the yellow and used an MFT pierced oval to create the base for the scan n cut out image, which was coloured in copics.

I added a bow (ribbon from Lidl) and some IAR flowers and a HH round cameo and surround, finishing off with some go for gold HH pearls.

As always thank you to all my wonderful visitors for your inspiring comments, I will be over to see you shortly.

Happy Birthday

Good morning to you all

As you know a Wednesday means more of my lovely


inspired creations, today I am sharing with you a Birthday Card

using
Papers - Peach Blossom


I used a Create and Craft Scallop card blank


I started by cutting a white pierced square using Sue Wilson's Double pierced square dies, and followed this with a designer paper one slightly smaller.  I added the Woodland border which has been distressed to add the hues of orange on top of this a strip of wired ribbon, and a strip of pearl string.  I placed the triple bow on top, adding a diamante heart and two little roses.  I cut the oval frame and distressed the edges of this and placed this on foam pads on the card.  I stamped the image twice and coloured up the images, I then used my scan n cut to cut out the image, and then the added layer of the flowers and the butterfly.  I placed this on foam pads onto the oval frame and layered up the extra bits with pin flair glue.  I cut the Sue Wilson flag and distressed through the die before adding the sentiment. I finished off with the florals and the peach pearls.

The image is coloured with copics and some Atyou glitter pens.


As always thank you to all my wonderful visitors for your inspiring comments, I will be over to see you shortly.
