Authentique Pretty number 4


IMG_2621 (Medium)Sorry I missed last nights post, but we are still having random internet issues. still using Authentique Pretty collection of papers,I also used a dress form die ( mine is from stampin up, but most die companies have one of these!)and wrapped  some lace around it, and glued a string of pearls around the neck area.I folded back a corner of the layered square and pinned it with a kaisercraft brad,and added some black lace there to peek through. A ribbon bow and some  ruler printed trim ( got it and the string of pearls from K-mart) to finish off this design. Til tomorrow….

Wedding Cuttlebug card

1 Comment

IMG_5369 (Medium)IMG_5374 (Medium)This is a card that I made for a friends wedding.I used two 6′ white cards, cut the fronts on the diagonal and stuck the backs together. I embossed the front triangles with a Hearts embossing folder, and punched the edges with  Marhta stewarts lace doily punch. I added some prima flowers, a flourish die cut and some white and silver ribbon. Then the card that i slipped into the pocket created by the shaped front – a seperate piece of white cardstock stampoed and silver embossed with a stampin up stamp, two die cut heart run through the cuttlebug in two different folders, and a little tag and flower and ribbon.I have shown a close up of the insert detail.The computer has decided to type in blue all underlined today, hopefully when I publish this it all looks normal!Til tomorrow..

Cuttlebug card – white on white baby

1 Comment

IMG_0395 (Medium)No colour co-ordinating dilemmas on this card! i did go through a white on white phase a little while ago, and this was one of the cards i created.The embossing folders i used were cuttlebug swiss dots, and stampin up square lattice. I cut the banners at various lengths, and punched out four circles with a 1″ circle punch, and inked around the edges of them with pale pink ink. i used a piece of wool fibre across the top, some pink ribbon bows, and a prima lace rosette down in the corner. This one was so simple, but I love the effect of white on white for this card.I had a great time with my ladies this morning, and am looking forward to a weekend of crafting – the weather here is cold and wet, so a lovely weekend for crafting.. Til tomorrow….

Bold and Bright!

IMG_2859 (Medium)Today we leave behind the stamping, but stick with the bold andd bright colours! The scrap of paper I used for the flower stem is from Stampin Up Madison Avenue, and I used stampin up cardstock and matching ribbon – Tangerine tango and island indigo.The die used is sizzix  tim holtz rosette, and the embossing folder is stampin up chevron folder.I stamped my greeting with a stamp from the itty bitty banner set from stampin up in tangerine tango ink. This afternoon I have been busy making a new home card for an order, and I have some things laid out on the craft table ready to go for an ideas I have, but this weekend has to be about Fathers day cards ( just a few more to do) and xmas cards. Til tomorrow….

White on White Wedding card – cuttlebug

1 Comment

IMG_5822 (Medium)There is nothing quite so classical ( and Classy) as white on white. If I am making a wedding card and I don’t know the colour theme for the wedding I always do white on white. The key here is to use texture to make the layers stand out. So – that’s embossing folders ( swiss dots and Vintage wallpaper from stampin Up on this one) foam pads for height, and lace, ribbon, pearls and assorted flowers for mor texture and interest. The little strip of gold embossed paper is from Kaisercraft After  5 6″pad. Tomorrow I am setting up my craft fair stall, so post may be a little late, and I will try to stick to daily blogs over the weekend to let you all know how I am going,getting quite excited now! Til tomorrow….
