Bo Bunny Primrose card and matching box – number 6

IMG_0305 (Medium)As I have mentioned before I have been making a few cards and matching boxes for my stall in June at the local craft fair, and this was one of them.The card is on the left, and I used stampin up cardstock, matted a couple of papers from Bo Bunny primrose collection, fussy cut the butterflies and flowers along the bottom, and added some Kaisercraft pearl strips. the box is on the right hand side, and I kept the decoration quite simple , using another fussy cut butterfly and a die cut from the same collection. Liquid pearls and a ribbon bow to finish off the decoration on that one. the end of a long working week and I am looking forward to some relaxation time, and some experimenting with some new tools that I will share next week! til tomorrow….

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….

Tilda Country Escape number 5

IMG_1075 (Medium)This next group of cards that Nathan and I photographed is a real mix and match! This one is a vintage style card,which I made with Tilda Country Escape papers. They came in a 12 x 12 pad, and there were a few pages of die cuts included in the pad which made it great value.I have run 2 strips of paper down the card and hidden the join with a wide ribbon. I used another wide ribbon for the bow, added a die cut ( spellbinders persian motifs) and some liquid pearls. I inked around all my pieces with tea dye distress ink, in keeping with the whole vintage style. I am off now to organise Nathan to get the camera out and photo some new cards, til tomorrow….
