Hi, thank you for stopping by

Please keep checking in as I have lots of craft goodies for sale at unbelievable prices!

This is a 7"x7" ivory card base where I added a thin purple and lilac mat onto the base.  I then matted ivory, purple and lilac card, smaller than what is on the base, and added foam tape to the back to give dimension.

I then measured a piece of ivory card to create the focal point and to fit in diagonally across the card.Using the Triple Gemini Dies - Cepheus I cut  the die at each end of the card then inverted it to complete the design.

The sentiment is from the 'Delightful Sentiments Range' for CE, this was stamped in black Archival.  'Cape Daisy' flower dies by SW for CE was used to make the layers on both flowers using lilac card and purple card for the flower centres, finishing the look with 2 flat backed ivory pearls

Original card showcasing the Cepheus dies by Sue Wilson can be seen on her blog, I have made several changes to my card

Thank you for visiting

All for now...

I used an A4 pink card and folded it landscape.
On white card I used 'Best Wishes' Die by SW for CE to cut and emboss 3 times then adhered it onto white card.  The 'Happy Birthday' die and cupcake die is, again, by SW for CE.  I lightly coloured the cupcake base in pink and coloured the flame in yellow.  The 'Birthday Cake' die is by Savvy Dies.  I cut and embossed this, added double sided adhesive sheet to the back of the die cut then sprinkled Iced Snow by CE to it.  The flame on the candles are coloured in a ProMarker Red Pen.  The balloons were made with a punch by Woodware.  I applied glue to them and added Diamond Sprinkles.  On the top balloon I placed 2 tiny hearts.  Baker's Twine was used to 'hold' the balloons and the small ribbon is made with a die from my own stash

A U T U M N (2)

This is the second card I'm entering into the blogs listed below

On a piece of white card I placed a small circle to mask out the sun.  Using Distress Inks in:  'Faded Jeans', 'Fired Brick', 'Rusty Hinge' and 'Wild Honey' I coloured the card.  I removed the mask and drew 3 small birds in that area.  I stamped the butterflies using Archival Ink in 'Coffee' from IndigoBlu's Live, Laugh, Love Stamp Set

The sentiment is by Clarity Stamps,  was also stamped with the same ink pad

The card was then matted onto a brown, orange then white card

I am entering this to the following blogs:

This is one of two cards that I'm entering on the blogs listed below

On an A5 white card stock I used a die to create the scalloped edge on the front of the card and ran 'Rusty Hinge' Distress Ink Pad across the scalloped area.
Next I stamped 4 leaves using IndigoBlu 'Live, Laugh, Love' stamp set.  I used Distress Inks in Wild Honey and Rusty Hinge to colour the leaves.  A light coating of 'Enchanted Gold Gilding Wax' by Creative Expressions was applied to each leaf.

I then cut a strip of white card, backed it with a piece of double sided adhesive sheet, removed the backing and applied 'Red Blaze Gilding Flakes,' by Creative Expressions, to this exposed adhesive sheet.  This was then buffed with a piece of 'RubIt ScrubIt' again by CE.  This was mounted on a matt of white card then black card and adhered to the card front.

I stamped the sentiment (from my stash) onto white card using Adirondack's Dye Pad in 'Pitch Black'.  Using two flag dies (CE) I cut the sentiment from the smaller die then a black flag using the middle size die.  I 'curved' the sentiment and adhered to the card front.

I used Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue to secure the leaves on the edge of the card

This is my second card to enter into the

Crafty Cardmakers' Challenge Blog
featuring multiple layers

The finished dimensions are 8"x10"

I used grey pearlised card and white card to create 7 layers.  I added mounting foam to the final top section for dimension and layered this with a pretty floral design paper from my stash.  I attached a pink ribbon around this as well as making and attaching narrow white bows as well as adhering a small square, clear dazzler by Creative Expressions to the centre of the bow.  The sentiment was stamped in black to the bottom of the design

Crafty Card Makers Challenge Blog

Using lots of layers as requested, this card is an 8"x8"

I have mattered and layered onto my white base card the following:

white, pink, white card stock then a floral pink paper, I then added a white card that I'd previously embossed.  To this I cut and embossed my focal element (I'm not sure if it was a Tonic die) in pink card and attached in the centre.  I then added a white bow using silky crush ribbon by Creative Expressions.  The two flourishes are from the Bella Rose die set by Heartfelt Creations (I snipped off the leaves on both flourishes) and attached under the ribbon.  To complete I added 4 pink faux pearls using Cosmic Shimmer PVA glue to all 4 corners, pearls around the centre of the focal element then cut and embossed, on white card, two flowers from the 'Finishing Touches - Cornflower range of dies by Sue Wilson/Creative Expressions as well as adding a pearl to the centre on both flowers

I started with a white 8"x8" card base then added a mat of brown then custard coloured card stock.  Next I cut and embossed another piece of custard coloured card 4 times using the border die from the Australian Collection.  To the back of this card I attached a piece of double sided adhesive sheet then glittered the front with Diamond Sprinkles.  Next using the outer cutting die and the matching decorative die from the Australian Collection I attached them to the centre of the custard card and cut and embossed it.  I matted this to brown then white card, used mounting foam, to give it dimension, and attached it to the base of the card.  I cut and embossed the outer and the larger decorative die from the Australian Collection in brown card and placed it in the centre of the card to give a 'step up, step down' design.  The sentiment was stamped to a smaller piece of custard card then cut and embossed using the tag die, again from the Australian Collection.  I then cut and embossed 3 flowers, added a flat back pearl to each centre and adhered to a white bow.  To complete the design I made 2 stick pins and secured them into the knot of the bow

Second Black & Yellow

I used the same card stock and method as the previous card to create this one but with the yellow card as the more prominent colour.  I also used the Exquisite Poppy Die to create the flower and adhered it to the top left of the card and added 3 black pearls to the bottom

Black & Yellow

I created an A5 base card by folding a sheet of A4 black card in half, portrait style.  I then cut a mat of yellow card, then black card and a final mat of yellow card.  To this piece of yellow card I cut and embossed the main focal point then added a piece of double sided adhesive sheet to the back of the design. The 2 layers were adhered together and mounting foam applied to the back to give dimension.  Diamond Sprinkles was applied to the front of the aperture.  I then cut and embossed a bow from the same black card using the classic bow die and again using the filigree bow die in yellow card. The bow was attached to the bottom of the layers and I completed the design with 3 black gems to the top left side of the card
