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….

Stampin Up tea for two number 4

IMG_8690 (Medium)This is the last card using Tea for two designer paper ( stampin Up) for just now, and here, I have used very vanilla, basic grey and pink pirouette cardstock, ( embossed the vanilla with Stampin Up lacy Brocade embossing folder) and a couple of dies – spellbinders D-lites medallion four, and stampin up Dress up framelits.The sentiment is from my stampin up vintage verses set, and I added lace, ribbon,liquid pearls and a prima flower to finish.Today I bought up a storm buying lots of new release papers, and tonight I am going to spend some time going through them all, and fussy cutting some of them ready to use. Its still hot here, and it’s not good weather for crafting as the glue dries before you get it where you want it to go! Til tomorrow….

Prima Tea Thyme number 8

IMG_3673 (Medium)I really enjoy making these cards in boxes, and I have done a You Tube video ( titled card in a box box) to show how I make these very simple boxes.For this one I used Prima Tea Thyme 6″pad, and matching flowers. I added some ribbon, lace and an organza bow to finish.The tags used are all found in the 6″pad.I have been amazingly creative this week, and have made close to 40 cards, which I now have to organise Nathan to photo , and I have been very naughty and not done the inserts, so tonight I will be going through them all inserting the verses!That is the most boring job… which explains why I haven’t done them yet! Til tomorrow….

Just an organza bow and a little kindyglitz, and a simple card! Til tomorrow….
