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.

Love you Mum

Good morning to you all

As you know a Wednesday means more of my lovely


inspired creations, today I am sharing with you a Mother's Day Card

using


The base card is made from a Grand Nestie Fancy circle, the first layer is the next plain circle in and the inner circle is the next fancy layer in too.  The white layer has been embossed and lightly rubbed over with TH spun sugar distress ink.  I then cut the die for the image out of pink.  I cut the MFT rectangle die out and ran this through the embossing folder too, for some extra love with those hearts.  The image was stamped and cut, I added a grey depth layer around the image and then cut it on my scan n cut, think I should have left off the grey (still learning how to make the most of the scan n cut).  I added a Sue Wilson flag with the sentiment on it before adding lots of pearl dots in pink and white.  I added a triple layer double bow, with a Hobby House cameo and surround, some IAR daisies and some more HH roses along with a pink diamante heart to finish.

I made a stand for it too, using a Marianne die.

The image was coloured in copics with some Atyou Spika pink glitter on the butterflies and some stickles on the flower centres.


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

This time I went with a Valentine's Card


This is a create and Craft 15cm square scallop card blank in white


This time I used some very old papers cannot remember which pad they are from.  I used my new Tonic die to create a soft pretty edge around the card, the image which I adore, never fits in a normal way so I have tilted the square to allow the image to fit.  The squares are cut with the Sue Wilson double pierced dies and the sentiment sits on Sue Wilson's flag die.  I added two rows of pearl strings, some pink pearls,  I edged the flag with some TH spun sugar before adding the pink satin bow the two IAR roses and the diamante heart button.

As always I would like to thank all of my lovely visitors for their wonderfully inspiring comments, and I will be over to visit you all soon.

Valentines Day Wishes with the Wild Rose Studio DT

Good morning to you all

I had a lovely weekend, and had time to get on with some crafty bits too.  Here is just one of my makes, a Valentines Card, which I created to inspire you with those lovely products from 


I used 



The card blank is A2 and I have used it portrait as I wanted to create a card using the mojo Monday sketch

I had cut the wire style die long ago and never could figure out how to use it, as it never looked right with what I did with it, until I saw the lovely Vicky use is on one of her inspirational cards and then it all fitted together nicely.  So I used the full die layering those gorgeous papers behind it.  I added this to the base white card, placed this onto the red card and wrapped the ribbon three times around the card before adding the MFT cut dies in red and then placing the white one on top.  I then cut the doves in love out of left over from the paper pack and sprayed this to adhere it to the card.  Oops forgot to say I cut the bells off it before I sprayed it.  I added the triple depth triple layer bow, the diamante heart, large daisy and rose from IAR some pearl drops in white and red.  I added the with love die raising slightly to curve it and then finished by stamping the free magazine sentiment across the top.

It has been a while since I used a sketch and I have to say I love how it turned out.

Once again I would like to thank my lovely visitors for you kind and inspiring comments, I will be over to see you soon.  Also sorry to say goodbye to those not on the google issue and hope to see you back soon.

I would like to enter the following challenge with this card

There are some gorgeous samples over on the challenge site so do pop over and see them all, and hope to see you enter the challenge too

My creation was inspired by my lovely teamie Lols, you see Lols got a new toy and raved on about it so much that I decided to spend some of my Christmas Gift money on one, so this is my very first shaker card using my new fuse tool.


This is a create and Craft 15cm square scallop card blank in white


I used my new Sue Wilson double pierced squares to create the layers and her New York Herald Square for the pretty frame to hold the shaker bits.  I added two rows of pearl strings the usual bow with some beautiful satin pink ribbon, a little IAR pink rose and that gorgeous diamante heart button.

 I love how it turned out, but think the shaker bits were just a little bit too big, I have since purchased some nail art beads, so cheap and perfect for my next play with that fuse tool.

As always I would like to thank all of my lovely visitors for their wonderfully inspiring comments, and I will be over to visit you all soon.
