Brand new cuttlebug/bigshot card

IMG_5104 (Medium)I came up with this card at short notice for a lesson.I used pearlescent cardstock ( for the card base) and pearlescent paper in the same shade of pink for all the embossing and die cutting. punches used – martha stewart lacy border, leaf, and branch , and the flower die is a new release from kaisercraft. I added flat backed pearls in the centre of the flowers. This card was actually so simple, but looks really effective in real life with the shimmery card and paper. A gorgeous day here in adelaide, so we are all off to a bbq lunch in the park..must dig out my sunscreen and hat, at 29degrees celsius our winter skin may get a little burnt! til tomorrow….

Flash back Thursday!

IMG_8829 (Medium)welcome to flash back thursday! A short series of most popular cards I have posted on my blog! This one is actually more popular than the previuos flash back card, because it was made a couple of years later, and has had the same amount of views and pins etc..It’s all punching and embossing folders ( are we seeing a theme here?)The embossing folder is a stampin up folder, but a lot of the newer folders I have seen would give the same effect,and the lacy cardigan bits are made with my martha stewart lace doily punch.the card base was made with a pale pink cardstock to give the illusion of skin when the green cardstock was folded back.Til tomorrow….

IMG_0556 (Medium)Today we are having a flashback thursday! I thought it would be interesting to check out which card has been my most viewed/shared card and it is this one from June of 2011! It was made with stampin up cardstock, and the stampin up  blossom party die die set ( still a favourite die of mine)The leaves were  done with a stampin up sizzix leaf die, and I used assorted brads to hold the flowers together. very busy day off today , what with shopping and a trip to the dentist, the day is running away from me and not too much time left for the craft room. At least the weekend is in sight! til tomorrow….
