Cuttlebug card – white on white baby

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….

Cuttlebug – Wedding Card

IMG_5817 (Medium)For the next few days I will show you some wedding and Engagement cards I have been working on for my craft fair stall. This one makes the most of my cuttlebug, and I used 3 different embossing folders – Tied together ( couture creations) for the main background, and swiss dots ( Cuttlebug) and Vintage wallpaper ( stampin up) on the Hearts which were punched out with a Stampin Up punch. Spellbinders Floral Oval for the wording, and a ribbon bow, flowers and pearls to finish.The cardstock is Stampin Up Pool party, and pink pirouette. The nice thing about this design is you can change the colours to match the wedding theme! Til tomorrow….

Cuttlebug card – Mothers day

IMG_8824 (Medium)Today a card using my favourite pastel colours – white, pale pink and pale lilac. The spellbinders dies used are Timeless rectangle, and I added some prima flowers, satin ribbon and lilac liquid pearls. The sentiment which i stamped in chocolate brown is from a stampin up set – wonderful mother.Next time I do this one – and there will be a next time – I am going to emboss the background mat.I have had a hugely productive day in the craft room today – making boys birthday cards. I picked up 5 sheets of Bo Bunny¬† Surprise paper, and have so far made 10 cards with it – the ideas just keep flowing – got to love days like today! Til tomorrow….

Spellbinders labels seventeen number 3

IMG_4281 (Medium)IMG_4282 (Medium)There are two views of todays card, because the is a bit of work on the inside as well as the outside! I covered the front of the card ( all papers used are Kaisercraft Miss Nelly) and used the spellbinders label seventeen to die cut an aperture. The piece that was cut out was stuck inside on top of some more patterned paper, and I added a couple of butterflies die cut from Cheery Lyn exotic butterfly small #2. just added some bright ribbon and bling to finish.This is a simple card to make but looks really effective, and I must remember to make more like this! Til tomorrow….
