Heartfelt Creations raindrops on roses 1


IMG_6325 (Medium)heartfelt Creations are well known for their embossing folders and dies but did you know they also do ranges of paper? I didn’t until a friend showed me some, and I just had to have some. their paper pads come with papers already designed into card fronts, with enough for cutting your own 3d images, and a range of background papers too.You can make many many cards from just one pad. This card I have made is from the Raindrops on Roses pad, and I just added a ribbon bow and some bling to finish. There are also quite plain designs in the pad as well, and I used one of these inside for writing my greeting on.I hope everyone is having a safe and happy Easter, til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft velvet crush number 13

1 Comment

IMG_6312 (Medium)IMG_6313 (Medium)Today I thought I would show a card I made for our card club challenge. The challenge was to use a whole sheet of kaisercraft velvet crush patterned paper and a length of ribbon on one card. This was a huge challenge for meĀ  as my goal is usually to get as much out of one sheet of paper as I can!My bow on the front has become a little loose – something I didnt notice when we took the photo, but ignoring that…on the front I used the ribbon, and a prima button and pearl swirl. I die cut an oval out of the front of the card and sandwiched a length of ribbon between the paper and cardstock, then fussy cut the frames and stuck them on the ribbon, after stamping my greetings. Inside, I also decorated the blank cardstock, and fussy cut the rest of the paper and stuck it on top, and Die cut a butterfly and added rhinestones.One sheet of paper successfully used! Til tomorrow….

Graphic 45 Botanical tea number 9 ( the last… for now)


IMG_6314 (Medium)Here is the last of my Graphic 45 Botanical Tea ( for now) . For this last one I edged all my pieces with Tea Dye distress ink, did some fussy cutting, and used some yellow liquid pearls and kindyglitz to finish.Some of the flowers were 3″d with foam pads.I have spent this afternoon in the craft room planning out one of my June lessons. A different kind of lesson for that month – it will be interesting to see what the ladies think of it. I have had great fun playing with a couple of new dies from couture creations. I am heading back there in a minute to do some stamping – haven’t done much of that lately, and I am feeling creative! til tomorrow….
